Life Update: New Blog Design & I'm Off!

First thing's first, Youwishyou has had a make over! I teamed up with the lovely Felicity of Pursuit of Felicity Designs again to give my design a revamp. As you can see we've had a little rearrange and added a few extras like my navigation bar, post divider and favicon which I'm so happy and excited about; it makes me feel like my little blog has grown up and evolved into a real website a bit! 

If you haven't heard of Pursuit of Felicity before and you're looking to have your blog designed professionally she has an amazing portfolio of past designs and is beyond a pleasure to work with. This is the second time she's done a design for me and I honestly wouldn't go with anyone else. She tailors the design perfectly to suit you and exactly what you want to see on your blog and I'm so proud of my lovely new blog design, she did an amazing job as always. Please be sure to check out Felicity's website here to get your own gorgeous design or just to have a nose at others she has created.


Another exciting element of my new blog design is the water colour portrait on my header. I wanted a little bit of myself in the design and I worked with the amazingly talented Ella Smethurst who painted the portrait for the design. I adore how perfectly the portrait fits in with the rest of the design, it's created a stunning finish to the whole design. Ella's work is absolutely fantastic so please visit her website here and give her Facebook page a like here . She is available for commission work and you can buy her stunning art for your home, so you can get a gorgeous portrait or image for your own blog or a piece to spruce up your living room!

Aside from my new blog design, which I hope you all love, as of today I am going to be away for two weeks. My boyfriend, his parents, his brother and I are going to Sitges which is near Barcelona and I'm so excited to just relax, get tanned and sip cocktails. I've just finished my first year at university and James has just finished his A-Levels which he worked so hard for, so we're both really looking forward to just being able to relax for a fortnight. James' family are so lovely and such a laugh as well so I'm really excited for just spending a nice, long holiday away with them. 

Obviously while I'm away I won't be able to reply to comments, tweets or emails so please don't think I'm ignoring you if I haven't responded to anything, I'm not being rude I just haven't got internet access, I promise! I have scheduled posts for while I'm away so there is still going to be plenty for you to read on Youwishyou while I'm gone.

So, that is the current situation and all the information behind my new blog design- yay!

I'd love to know what you all think of Youwishyou's new look as well, so please comment with your feedback.
