a fresh new look


hi lovelies.  notice anything different?  this site just got a little re-fresh.  while, i still totally love the design of my blog and wasn’t ready to part, all together, with the look and logo, i felt it was time for a little update.  i wanted things to be super clean, simple and modern, with a touch of sweet.  the site was originally desgined by breanna rose and the updated design (and development) by tom wilz.  i’ve been really fortunate to work with such great designers!

what do you think?

i’m super pleased with the fresh look.  i’m also way excited about some of the new functions and additions to the site.  wanna see?


the LIVING / LOVING / LITTLES categories have been updated with a drop down menu (hover + then click) of specific categories (as shwon above).  pretty cool!

i’ve also updated the features section so you can access the regulars in the easiest of ways.


how about this pretty little circle, at the bottom?  it has a purpose.  click on it and it will take you back to the top of the page.


if you’re looking for more lovely than scroll to the bottom for popular posts.



one BRAND NEW FEATURE  i’m thrilled about is the shop.  i’ll be curating some of my most favorite things.  some that i personally have and love, as well other lovely things that are on my wish list.

new photos

and…. new pictures – done by white shutter.  we had such a fun time doing the photoshoot and i can’t wait to share a few more pics from that day!

i’m still working on re-categorizing all of my old posts (note to anyone starting a blog : do not create a million gazillion categories.  keep it simple!) to get them all in the right place.  all of my old posts are still on the blog, you just might have to use the search menu for older features like monday mess and wait a few days for the categories to get totally populated.  thanks for your patience!

but, for now….sit down with a cup of tea and take a look around!

a huge thanks to tom wilz + and white shutter!

    It looks gorgeous. I love how simple and clean your site is. Your new pic’s are lovely!! I have recently made changes to my site in hopes of highlighting my blog, book and simplifying the overall site. Now, I’m hoping to use Adsense to monetize and would like to maintain the aesthetic quality. You’ve certainly done that here, Trina. If you have any tips for me I would looooove to hear from you.

    Oh how I adore la la lovely! I really enjoy reading your blog and I’ve had lots of fun fanning through your archives! Love the new look! Your blog and home remind me of the wonderful book, Simple Home: Calm Spaces for Comfortable Living by Mark and Sally Bailey, and I can’t help but feel they took all of their inspiration from your design sense!
