Surprise: Come See Lolalina’s New Look!

Hello my lovelies! I have a big surprise for you today…over the weekend, I completely made over the site from tip to toe, and I couldn’t be more tickled with the results. If some of you recall, last summer I gave the blog a redesign – but even after pouring in countless hours of work, I never felt it was totally “me”. I just wasn’t satisfied with the results. But this time, well, I wasn’t even planning on getting it done so soon…but the stars aligned, inspiration struck, and I ran with it!

I designed a new header, changed the layout, swapped out backgrounds, and added a few more fun details. I really feel this embodies the way I see Lolalina – as a cheerful, uplifting, fun place to spend a bit of time in good company. On that note, I also went back to my original tagline, Find Your Sweet Life. If you are reading this in an rss reader or via email, please click on over to the site, and let me know what you think!

Credits:

While the concept & design is all from yours truly, I did use a few wonderful resources that deserve mentioning. The background pattern and social media buttons are from August Empress, the linen texture is from Sharon K Collins Photography, and I got tips and inspiration for my new header from Katrina of Pugly Pixel.

Happy new week, friends! Benny has the day off, so we’re heading out to the beach! xo Laura
