Giving My Blog A Makeover!

Hello! ♥

As you may or may not have noticed over the past couple of days, I went a little crazy with changing several things on my blog and my social media sites. I thought it was time for something new, something more minimalistic. That's what I wanted to go for and which I hope is now a good new look for my blog!

First of all I tried - yes, tried - to buy a domain on a webhosting site, which turned out to be a waste of time and effort. They didn't support DNS editing, but you need exactly that when you want to refer the new wedaddress to the old one. So I tried to switch the provider but keep the domain and gladly it worked - I think
I've received plenty of emails saying that it's in progress and I hope that I can use the new link to my blog soon - :-) The old one will still bring you to my blog then though!

Anyways, after that was done - more or less - I thought about a colour scheme or a new overall look in general. I tried some new colours but I didn't like most of them. 
After experimenting for a good couple hours, the idea of keeping it minimalistic and simple popped up. New header, fonts, only one colour to add a little something, and a new layout. 
And I must say that I'm really happy with how it turned out! *heart eyes emoji*

Some things didn't work as planned though. Nothing bad but I'm still trying to make it work with my template. If any of you know, though, how to make social media icons and single words (navigation bar page names at the top) fade in or out when you hover over them with the cursor of your mouse, then please leave a comment
I'm still kind of frustrated that it didn't work, especially after the billions of times I tried to change the HTML or CSS :-(

My schedule will stay the same, as well as the categories - mainly beauty, but also lifestyle and fashion - and everything else. 
I still hope that I can improve my writing and my blogging in general and I'd love to hear some feedback! :-)

What do you think about the new look? Do you like it better than the old one? 
Let me know in the comments down below!

As for now, I'm leaving you here with a 'have a great week!' and make sure to come back on Friday! ♥
