If you’re visiting, in the hope to see some live updates here at MWS, you’re in luck! After a week or so of hard work behind the scenes, I’d like to present to you the brand new website design of My Women Stuff!
It has been a while since I changed my blog design and with one thing and another that’s been going on, I felt that it was time to change things around. Just like how a fresh coat of paint or rearranging the furniture around can make a house feel and look brand new, I suppose. That’s how it feels like right now :)
If you are reading this in an RSS reader, or in email, or if you haven’t visited the blog for a while, come over and say Hi! I don’t bite :P If you aren’t seeing the new design and are wondering what I’m on about, clear your browser’s cache or hit Ctrl+F5 for a hard refresh, and you should see what’s new :)
While it does look fairly familiar, quite a lot has changed under the hood, as I basically overhauled the whole framework, which means that you may or may not find yourself plunging down a rabbit hole. If you do, please let me know so I can fix it.
As you can tell also from the collage above, the new design is now responsive, which means it resizes seamlessly across all your devices. But what is most important, is that you should not have any more problems leaving comments from your mobile! Yay! I had to work with a mobile theme plugin before this and that gave a lot of trouble to many people, I know. I took heed of your complaints about not being able to comment on your mobile, and that’s been addressed. So, that’s one major problem gone! Comment away from your mobile, folks! :D
While I’d previously embarked on ambitious projects like this on my own before, this time, I engaged the services of Tine, who you may know blogs over at Beautyholics Anonymous. She does work with theme designs and WordPress on the side, so I decided I’d use her services this time. Let someone else worry about coding for a change LOL! :D And I can’t recommend her highly enough. I was kept in the loop all the way, and things moved along very smoothly, and it pretty much worked out how I envisaged it to. So, if you need some work done on your blog, drop her a line :)
Blog redesign aside, I went underground for most of the past week, undergoing what I’d term a social media detox. Basically, I went AWOL on all my social media channels, and I must say, it felt good to just lay low and disappear for a while.
But now that I’m back, it means I have some catching up to do. What you see above is just some of the new things that have come my way, or that I’ve purchased in the past month or two, that I’d like to share with you.
Some are time sensitive of course, like the L’Occitane x Pierre Herme Christmas collection which I hope to share very soon; and the Guerlain Rouge G in Merveilleux Rose for Christmas that I picked up at Sephora a few days ago. It’s funny. Selected Guerlain Christmas items are already available at some Sephora stores, but you have to ask the sales people about them. I haven’t picked up the Enchanted Snowflakes Meteorites, which are incredibly pretty, but which have also gone up so much in price that I balked. Yes, my friends, I actually passed over Guerlain Meteorites because they were too pricey! Goodness, I suppose with greater age comes greater wisdom :P But, never say never of course. Who knows what I might do in a moment of folly :P
Other items in the picture, and many others not pictured, will be released on the blog as we go along. Being predominantly skincare, they will take a little while. You know the drill :)
But as I’ve done for most of 2015, I’m taking things a little slower and a little lighter. That isn’t changing. I’m focusing on what I enjoy and what grabs my attention the most. Less blogging time means less blog real estate, which means I’m very selective in what I will publish. I suppose regulars can tell that MWS has moved on from being a news-y blog, although I’m not quite certain what we’ve transitioned into. A blog reflective of my own character, I suppose :)
Yet, I hope it is one that you will still enjoy visiting; if not for what’s new in the beauty world, at least to read some bluntly honest product reviews, and to partake in the occasional curious, if not random discussions :) Everyone is welcome at MWS, and I thank you for welcoming me into your day.
I hope you enjoy visiting and browsing around the new MWS site.
Please let me know if you fall down a rabbit hole, and please let me know if the mobile comment function works! That is one feature I was most concerned about, thanks to all the feedback I’ve received, and now, you have to tell me if it’s any better :D I’m glad to be back, peeps!
