WORD WONDERS GETS A MAKEOVER !!

New Design Announcement.png

Hello guys!

Are your eyes hurting yet from all the brightness? Ehehehe #Sorrynotsorry!

To be honest, I wasn’t going to make announcement post because I didn’t know what to say in it -and I still don’t know- but when you have blogger friends that make you realize how non-sensical it is to not write a post about it, what do you do? YOU WRITE A POST ABOUT IT! And that’s what I’m doing here, explaining a little bit of the why and the what.

nda-1

It is quite simple, I was fed up of my old design, I felt like it was dull and didn’t represent my personality the way it should. Plus I came to HATE my graphics, they felt too crowded and they just hurt my eyes. To put it in a fewer words, I was ready for a change, and if you know me at all, you’d know that if I’m not 100% satistfied with something I’d easily get bored of it and that’s what happened here. It was my first attempt at any kind of blog design and although it wasn’t bad, I learnt a lot since and felt like it needed improvement.

nda-2

Huh! Because it’s bright and bold so I feel like it’s more ME, I’m a big ball of energy that goes around flailing and shouting, in contrast with that my color scheme was bleh and I didn’t like the yellow much to begin with. Even though pink isn’t my favorite color, I fell in love with the background and decided I was going to use it and nothing else. I hesitated a lot at first because I feared it was too bright, then I thought, what the heck, I love it so why not? Plus, it complimented the fact that I wanted my graphics more minimalistic. A bold background and white graphics. That’s how I roll from now on.

nda-3

Well, EVERYTHING?! Okay, for the new comers (Welcome!), the background went from this:

The header from this:

WORD (1)

to this:

My Graphics looked like this :

and now, like this:


I also got myself a logo:

I’ll be using only 2 fonts –Selina and Text me One– instead of the the 4 (What was I thinking?!) I used before. I will also be changing some of my post formats, especially the wrap-ups. What else is there? Mmm.. I think that’s it for now, the rest of it you’ll see while the new posts go up. The only thing I’m keeping is the theme (which is Zoren) because it’s the one that works best for me and for what I want my blog to resemble.

The perfectionnist freak in me seriously considered going back and changing ALL the graphics to match, but a girl has no time. I think that if it was summer I would have done it. Really. Haha!


That’s it until next time!

Hope you enjoyed, write to you soon.

  1. Hello Fadwa! SO I just saw your tweet and decided it’s high time I bloghopped and well, here I am! Quite fitting that I should visit you just when your blog had a makeover, huh? πŸ˜€ Looks great, I LOVE the colors and I daresay everything looks much better than before if what the pictures you’ve included are anything to go by. Looking forward to your new (more colorful) posts!

  2. Whoaaaa this is such an extreme makeover!! And yes my eyes did hurt… but I LOVE IT because pink is my favorite color of ever!! You see my own blog, pink everywhere hahaha πŸ˜› and I’m completely on board with you about the change, my blog got its makeover a couple months ago and it was a total game changer for me! I love looking at my new design and it gave me the motivation to blog more πŸ˜€ and I really love all the new headers and I will 100% support your decision to change all the old graphics hahaha I did it too when I switched from stock photos to book photography. It was indeed time consuming πŸ˜› Also, did you already title your December wrap up post???!! It’s only the first day Fadwaaa hahaha :’)

    • THANK YOU ❀❀❀ This meabs so much to me, like you don’t even know how nervous I was because of all the color, I’m not used to it haha!
      Yep, I gathered that pink is your favorite and your blog looks so good, I wish I had the resources for photography but well ONE DAY.
      Hahahaha, you’re SO bad for me πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I think I will change them though but does that mean I have to edit the blue off of my posts as well ? 😱😱
      Hahahahah! Well I have a time machine but it’s a secret so shhhh

      • Yessss it was so drastic but I’m glad you took the leap! πŸ˜€ ahaha I got into photography because of blogging too! But I was lucky because my brother is into so I already have all the equipments set up πŸ˜› hmm probably… that’s SO much work though hahaha but hey, go big or go home right?! lol

        Omgggg I knew it hahaha you’re even more of a forward-thinker than I am!

      • I don’t have the books to do photography and i don’t want all my photos to be ebooks πŸ˜… As for equipment I don’t mind using my phone, though a camera is way better obviously!!
        I’m seriously torn, I have almost 200 posts up.
        hahahaha πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  3. Yay! Change is so much fun (though I was confused initially, because I was checking to make sure I was following your blog and as soon as I got here I thought, “Wait, I’m definitely not following this blog…” until I saw this post and then it all cleared up). It looks great!

  5. Fadwa!! I love the new theme and color scheme! It’s so much fun! As for the rest of your graphics, maybe you can redo them little by little when you’re in the mood! Otherwise that’s a hell of an overhaul all at once! I love it!

  6. I love your new theme Fadwa, the pink is so bold and striking and a nice change as well. Plus I love your new graphics too. πŸ˜€
    I’m thinking about doing something different with my blog theme as well. It’s been the same all year and I’m a little bored with it now, but maybe that’s something to do in the new year when I have a little more time. πŸ™‚

  8. I love the colours! I love that it all matches. It makes me a little jealous, just a little, how together it all looks. It makes me want to revamp my blog because I know it’s quite boring, and I’d like to think I’m not a boring person ha!

  9. Aaahh, it looks so good!! 😍 It’s so bright and happy, I really like it! And I so want to change my design now, but don’t have the time. I’m like you, I would like to change all posts from the start but it would be so time consuming 😡
    I loved seeing the comparison between the old one and the new one. It was pretty cool πŸ™‚

  10. I love the new design! I am planning on updating my own as well in the new year, but the issue is.. I don’t know if I felt creative yet. I love the colors! It’s like a burst of happiness! πŸ™‚

  11. AAAAH I LOVE IT. And oh my goodness, your new graphics look amazing! I’m still struggling to come up with a new graphics scheme for my blog’s makeover; I’m having a hard time settling on typefaces I like. I’m super impressed with yours! You’ve inspired me to settle down for another several-hour-long spelunking journey into the depths of Font Squirrel, et al. Thanks for the motivation! And excellent job on making such a gorgeous blog. =D
