Welcome to my blog relaunch… I’m back! Oh, have I missed writing my blog. FINALLY a little over a month later I can welcome you guys to my redesigned site… I hope you like it.
Now I would love to say I designed my new website myself but I didn’t. I like to think I have a creative eye though and I knew what I wanted. I’m just not into all the technical blah blah ha ha! Although I am trying to learn more of that side every day. I enlisted the help of a website developer who specialises in wordpress to actually move my site from .com to .org ready for my blog relaunch.
I designed my new logo myself… one night in bed it just came to me! (hands up if you’re a nightmare for overthinking at night?!) I enlisted the help of an illustrator and graphic designer friend to bring my vision to life. I think she did a great job, don’t you? If you have any graphic design needs you can check out her website here. Oh and she does the most gorgeous cards and prints too.
My New Website
Once the logo was designed that was a great starting point for inspiration for the website. We used the colour palette from the logo within the site design to keep continuity. I’m not quite there with the whole branding thing yet but I’m heading in the right direction I think!
It is Good to be Back…
I’m so excited to get writing again and connecting with you guys. I am FULL of ideas! So what will you be seeing on my blog now? Well, I summarised this in my developing my blog post so check that out to find out more.
What Have I Been up to?!
Well recently I had my first photoshoot! Which was so much fun. I will be sharing most of the images from that on my Instagram if you want to check it out and there are a couple on my new site. For the first time ever I’m really appreciating the beauty of autumn. I’m always sad to see summer draw to a close but this year I’ve really embraced the change of season (despite catching a cold).
Otherwise, I am busy with my real job – running my dance academy. My cheer teams are preparing for big competitions in December. I escaped for a weekend to Edinburgh with my two besties, which was so fun! You can expect a post on that very soon but for now, here’s a photo!
I am still yet to post my summer adventures to Canada and West Coast America. I have so many notes on these trips, I can’t wait to share it all with you guys!
That is all for now, I will be back with weekly posts on Wednesdays and Sundays. I would love to know what you think of my newly designed site in the comments!
Have a great Sunday,
Rachael 🙂 x
