christmas 2012 Merry Christmas! I got myself a special gift this year, come by and see!

Merry Christmas everyone!

If you celebrate Christmas, I hope you’re spending a lovely time with your family, or if not, at least with good friends and having a great time. For the rest of us, hey, its a mid-week break and a short work week for the final week of 2012 is always welcome! icon biggrin Merry Christmas! I got myself a special gift this year, come by and see!

For those of you who haven’t come by the blog in a while, perhaps I might entice you with a little visit, for this was a gift I got for myself this year. A new blog header, logo and outfit icon smile Merry Christmas! I got myself a special gift this year, come by and see!

I’ve had the old one for quite a few years now, and I’d been thinking of making a change for a while. 2012 was a year of changes, so it was about time to change some things around the blog too.

Some of you may have noticed some small changes happening over the past week already – a change in the font, a bit of tweaking in layout. Today is when I finally did the rest and put it together, as it were icon smile Merry Christmas! I got myself a special gift this year, come by and see!

I like the simplicity of the new logo, and I hope you will too icon smile Merry Christmas! I got myself a special gift this year, come by and see! It represents my personal mantra : Life is simple, lets not complicate it icon smile Merry Christmas! I got myself a special gift this year, come by and see!

A little bit of tweaking will still be going on but it will be minor in the bigger scheme of things icon smile Merry Christmas! I got myself a special gift this year, come by and see! There shouldn’t be any rabbit holes to fall down, but if you do please holler and I’ll pull you right back out!

Merry Christmas again and thank you for coming by! Here, have some Christmas cookies and eggnog and let’s be merry! icon biggrin Merry Christmas! I got myself a special gift this year, come by and see!

I LOVE the new logo, looks simple, elegant and grown up — and I never could figure out what the red thing was in your old header so I’m glad that is no more.

Thanks for being my favorite blogger and a place to check out for new ideas, thoughtful posts, and kind, warm responses. Best wishes for a Merry Christmas and I look forward to participating in your blog in 2013!

Ditto Kay! :) so what does the red circle really mean? I thought it looked like a round luggage or a perfume bottle. :)

Ding ding! Luggage it was :D I used to move around a bit and pick up stuff from here and there. These days, I lead a more sedentary life ;)

Haha it was a beauty trunk/luggage inspired from my earlier days when I would move around a lot more than I do now :) Thank you for coming by and for sharing your thoughts, experiences and views on the many things we talk about here. I appreciate it all and I look forward to more fun times in 2013! I hope you had a lovely Christmas, Kay :)

Ever since I discovered your blog site when you were a judge for a magazine, I’ve been reading it everyday without fail. Just to let you know you have a fan. I love your writing style. I was lost for awhile when you took off for a few days. When I logged in today, I thought I was in the wrong site. Love the new look. Merry Christmas! BTW, after reading your review for the Shiseido limited edition blusher, I got it as a Christmas present for my son’s girlfriend. She loves it.

Hi Cecilia! Thank you so much for being so supportive! I’m happy that you have stayed with us even after the initial visit, and I think you are absolutely lovely to get your son’s girlfriend the Shiseido Camellia blush! Its a beautiful gift and a beautiful gesture too :D I hope your Christmas was a good one, and here’s wishing you a happy new year ahead!
