You might have had to blink a few times when you opened the site, because it’s pink! I think it needed a little overhaul and this is what it turned in to. Now that the days are getting shorter and the dark days before Christmas are upon us, I thought it would be nice to kick in with some colour.
Usually I’m not one for pink, but messing around with some colour schemes my eye caught a few bright pink roses on some fabric I have stored near my sewing machine and I liked it. At first I wanted to pair it up with a blue colour but it didn’t turn out as I had envisioned.
Then I came across this background pattern and the yellow came in. It’s a bold and funky combination and to be honest it had to grow on me. But now that I’ve been staring at it for a few days, I like it. In fact, looking at it makes me smile. And we all know you can never smile enough! I guess it just fits my hippie outlook on life, or it reminds me of my flower power days from when I was still in college… ah the younger days 😉
I hope you all like it too! I’m really looking forward to hear what you think. And of course, as much as I tried to code everything properly, there might still be some things that need to be worked on. So if you come across anything like that, don’t hesitate to let me know, I’d appreciate it.
There are also some changes you can’t see. A while ago I posted about changing hosts and how I already transferred my domains out. Well, while I was writing that post I was already in the process of moving everything. The move has been done and despite the fact that I was worried about closing my old hosting account due to very negative reviews online, everything went well.
So here I am, all fresh with a new look and a new host. It seems the changing bug is going around the internet right now as everyone is changing their designs left and right (and they’re gorgeous!). It might not all be perfect yet here on She Travels but remember;

Because I think credit needs to go where it’s due, here are my resources. The background comes from PixelsAndIceCream, the fonts used are Polo, Underwood Champion, Julee and The Skinny. The colour scheme used is shown on the left, my social media icons are made by Pixeden and the paper plane in the header is drawn up by me (after staring at a few drawings of paper planes, turns out it’s not that hard to draw..)
Without further ado, what do you think?!
