New Year, New Look

Hello, lovelies! I’m a bit late to the party but… Happy New Year! I can’t believe 2012 is FINALLY over. It wasn’t one of my best years but for some weird reason I have a very good feeling about 2013. I don’t know why – but let’s hope it’s a wonderful year for all of us.

I’ve been thinking about changing my blog design for a few weeks but I haven’t had much time to do anything about it until last night. While I LOVE my template and this one sidebar design, I got a little bit bored with my previous header and I wanted to add a bit of colour to the blog. So I figured it’s a new year, why not start with a clean slate and a brand new look? So… here it is!

What do you think? And how was your New Year’s Eve? :)

    Oh my, it’s absolutely gorgeous! And it really looks like you as well, if that makes sense… A certain je ne sais quois, you might say! Very jealous, I still haven’t worked out how the bejeezus to do anything with my header/design! 😛

    Happy New Year chuck, I’m feeling SO GOOD about this coming year, and I can’t wait to see what great books you’ll chuck our way in 2013! xx

      Aw, thanks! I was trying to give her a similar hair to mine so that it looks a bit like me so I’m glad it worked 😀

      And I KNOW!!! Me too! I think it’s going to be a fantastic year :) xxx

      Aw, thanks Ashley 😀 I’ve a few new things in store for you guys but my exams will probably get in the way of blogging in the next few weeks. *shakes fist* But I’ll be back!

    Love your new header Vicky! It is gorgeous! Especially the girl’s bright auburn hair and the books lying one atop of another! Happy New Year! May 2013 be the best year yet!

        Edinburgh was awesome!! It’s just as filled with beautiful buildings like London, but it’s a lot less crowded. We saw giant pandas in the Zoo, they were so adorable. I had the best day ever because Lush was having a sale, and we had a bath in the hotel 😀 Scottish people are so nice! Edinburgh is now sharing first place with London of my favourite cities ^^

        Anyways. Do you know if the 2013 Dusseldorf blogger meet-up still going on in July?

      Same here. *le sigh* But at least it went by pretty quick, didn’t it? Or was it just me? Happy new year and here’s to a better year for both of us :)

      I do hope so! So many people keep saying how disappointing 2012 was so let’s hope this year is a bit better for all of us :)

      And she DOES? Oh, that’s great news :) I was trying to edit her in a way that she looks at least a tiny bit like me so I’m glad I managed to do that. Thanks Colleen and happy new year!

      I know!!!! But I’ve no idea why. I mean, 13 is supposed to be an unlucky number, isn’t it? Or maybe everyone had such a miserable year in 2012 that we’re all hoping for a better one? 😀

        I think a lot of people have had ups and downs this year and next year people just want to be happy :) one of the best ways to start is with a new pretty blog 😀 Plus you graduating soon so you have something huge to look forward to :)

        ps thankies for the luck for uni! I’m gonna need it :)! xxxx

          Let’s hope this year is a bit better than 2012 was :) I know, I can’t wait. I know I’ll be super busy in the next few months so how I’m going to read all these books is beyond me but at least I’m graduating in June, which is a huge relief.

          Don’t worry about uni, it will be fun. The first year is always the most exciting one, you’ll love it. :)

    Happy New Year to you, too, girl! I know I haven’t been commenting much lately, but I’M STILL HERE. And I love your new header. 😀 Hope 2013 will be a wonderful year for both you and your family!

      Thank you so much! :) And I KNOW! I haven’t had time to comment and check out other posts in the past few weeks either. It’s insane! But let’s hope the rest of the year is a bit less busy for both of us. :)

    I absolutely love it! Especially the new picture of you – so cute and funny 😀
    Do you design your layouts yourself? I would really like to learn how to create those kind of illustrations and stuff but don’t think i’ve got it in me.

      Thank you! <3 :) And that’s my idea of a great New Year’s Eve – hope you had a nice time! *whispers* and it’s almost Survivor time!

    I really like the new look. I want to change my blog around and organize it more. That’s my job to do in the next week. You have a great looking blog!

  7. says
