MASSIVE Blog Update!| 250 Followers!? |Fun Contest + Tons of Exciting News! 

Hi everyone! 

Yes! I’m finally back! OMG I missed blogging so much! Firstly I am dreadfully sorry for the delay in this post and for not blogging for so long. I had been planning a TON of special things and I had gotten really busy these past few weeks. I also had exams (unfortunately) but it’s over now and I couldn’t be more relieved haha… 😃

But anyway, the long awaited blog update is here! Yay! 

Alright first things first, The makeover is complete! I simply love it and I really hope that you do too! Let me know what you think of it in the comments down below. 

And you know, no makeover is complete without the before and after pictures..

 So here we go! 

Colour Scheme: White,Purple,Pink and Blue.

Theme: Sela

Features and what I liked. 

I really liked the colour scheme that I had picked out and the dream-y pattern that I had gone for. I think that my new fonts are also pretty similar to this one but I have designed everything differently. Unfortunately I don’t have pictures of the bottom part but it was basically three pictures and each one said ‘Style’ ‘DIYs’ and ‘Inspiration’ and underneath that I had inserted a text widget where I explained what each topic was about. I also loved how all of my content was displayed. I also really liked the fact that there were so many widget options. 

What I didn’t like

Unfortunately,I didn’t like the theme very much because any font that I used was always in capitals and for some reason I found the screen too wide. I have seen some gorgeous blogs with the same theme though and I think that bloggers like Emma really pull it off!

And this is what my blog looks like now! 

Colour Scheme: Hot pink, Black and white,Turquoise,Gold with sparkly glitter and a few touches of blush pink here and there. 

Theme: Dara

What I love

This blog has a sidebar and three widget options! I was really happy about that because I don’t think that Sela has a sidebar. But anyway, I LOVE the colours in the blog because they are all my favourite colours and so I just feel happy looking at my blog and because I think that they all go really well together! I am obsessed with glitter too so it was a definite must-have in my new blog so I’m really glad about that. 

New Features : 

This blog has quite a few new features like the Quote Corner! 

The Quote Corner is the place where I transfer my favourite quote for that week and make it a wallpaper and I share it on this blog and it’s free for all of you to download! There are a few conditions though..  If you are sharing it please give credit and please don’t claim as your own or sell it or anything like that. 

The second major feature is the ‘Positive Vibes Only’ Badge. This is something I really wanted to make for my blog because I think that positivity is really important and because I just wanted my blog to be a fun and positive place without any negativity and so I wanted to make something to reflect that. 

This badge actually led to a big idea that I’m really excited to share with all of you! But more about that later.. 😉

I also made a few changes to my site icon, it is now gold with a ton of glitter! 

I also have a lot more fun widgets which I think is really cool too!  

The Designs 

I actually downloaded my header from Angie Makes and I fell in love with the little gold dots and I spend ages customizing it to make it just right! 

One of the reasons that this post is so late is because I’m a perfectionist so I am not completely satisfied until I have redesigned and edited and tweaked with everything and made all the charges that were necessary but now I’m really happy with everything! 

I actually made the background myself using my new sketchbook app and I really like the way it compliments the header. 

And that’s it for the major designs! 

I actually also have a few other things that I’ve been dying to mention on this blog but I kept it a secret ( kind of anyway haha) until this post! 


The thing is .. 

I joined… 

I’m already LOVING these websites and apps! A huge thank you to my awesome friends Mahriya and Evelynn for telling me to join! I’m having a lot of fun already. If you have Goodreads or Polyvore don’t forget to leave your username down below so that we can follow each other and chat in the comments about fashion and books! 


I CANNOT believe I’m literally typing this right now but…

We reached 

We actually reached 200 followers on the fourteenth of February and 250 quite recently anf OMG everyone, I still can’t believe that we reached 200 followers let alone 250! 

Wow! Wow! Wow!!

I am sending each and every single one of you amazing people virtual hugs! 

I  still literally cannot believe it though…

250 People?! Reading my blog! 

It’s so so lovely and wonderful and I am simply exhilarated right now! 

A few days after I found out, I decided that I wanted to do something major to celebrate so I thought that I would merge the contest that I was planning to have when I reached 100 followers with the celebrations for this one but make it much bigger,more exciting and have some awesome prizes included!

The Contest is called ‘Spread Smiles’ because I really wanted to celebrate because I’m happy by making other people happy by spreading happinesss which in turn would make more people happy!

Also! Guess what?! 

I now have an…

in Shania’s  Blogger Mall! It officially opens on the Eighth of April ( when the contest results are up) and I couldn’t be more excited because I love designing graphics and I love wallpapers so it is a win-win situation! 

The store is called ‘Dreamer Designs’ and I called it that because I’m a dreamer and I make designs! I know it’s not exactly the best name ever haha.. but I think it fits quite well with everything! 

I have a few more things to announce! ( I told you this was a Massive update haha) 

I did my first ever guest post! Yay! I blogged about Books and how special they are over on Closet Readers Blog! ( they are awesome bloggers by the way! ) You can check that out right here!

I also started a new blog! This is blog is a place where I want to spread Positive Vibes with my friends! So this is what I mentioned earlier about my big idea! 

The idea is basically that we form a group of lovely bloggers and get together and blog every week about positivity and other lovely things and once you are a part of the group you will get the ‘Positive Vibes Only’ badge to display on your blog! 

The blog’s URL is and it is open to anyone to join! I think that it will be a lot of fun and it will be a fun way to spread positive vibes around without the responsibility of running a blog on your own! 

If you are interested in joining ( please do!) then please leave a comment down below or email me I really hope that you join because I think that it will be a lot of fun! 

I want the blog to just be a positive place where anyone can visit just to cheer themselves up, have some fun or even to just smile! 

The blog is currently hidden because it is in the process of being decorated and finding other bloggers or even non-bloggers to join but it will definitely be up soon! 

I also have some AMAZING people that I simply have to thank. These people have been an amazing part of my blog and are so supportive and wonderful that I can’t thank them all enough! 

  • My Mom

My mom is probably reading this right now and I want to thank her from the bottom of my heart for everything! From all of her AMAZING support and feedback,her lovely comments about my blog,for giving that extra boost of support when I needed it and the extra wifi! Also most importantly for being an amazing mom in general! Thanks a million! 🙂 

Farah has been a part of my blog since I reached about 15 followers. She was my first ever blogger friend and it is because she was so genuine and friendly that I made other friends and I can’t be more honored to be her friend because not only is she very talented and supportive but she is also a great friend as well! Farah is also probably THE most creative and friendly person ever! I love chatting with her because she is just so much fun to talk to!

Mahriya has been a major part of my blog too! Ever since we found out that we were Potterheads,we have become really good friends! (#potterheadsforlife) She is literally so sweet and supportive and just overall amazing! She is also an awesome collab partner and my go to person to talk about anything book related or anything really! 

Lui is one of my closest blogger friends and I couldn’t be more happy to be her friend. Lui is definitely one of the most lovely bloggers on the planet! If I could describe her in three words they would be Lovely,Creative and Friendly! She is on of the most positive people I know and I simply LOVE chatting with her! Her emails never fail to make me smile and it is always a pleasure to reply to them! 

  • My Bestie!

My BFF has been super supportive and just overall amazing about my blog! She is the only person who is not a family member who knows about my blo and I couldn’t be happier because she is always one of the first people to tell me what she thought about my latest post and how excited she is for my next one! She always gets me more excited to blog and I am so so grateful for all of her support and loveliness ( is that a word?) for everything! Thank you so much for going to so many different lengths to support me! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it 🙂 

I haven’t known Evelynn for very long but I already know that she is awesome! She is very creative and extremely talented and to top it off she also has great fashion sense!

    1. Reblogged this on The Girl With Coffe' and commented:
      Hey guys! ☺️

      Have you guys smiled today? I dare you to smile now (did it?) If you don’t, continue reading the post (and if you do, read it too😜)

      A smile is a pleased, amused (etc) facial expression. And it could affect another human being (or somebody) in a good way. Other than smiling (forced or not) could make your body feel relax, it also could lower your heartbeat and blood pressure! HOW EPIC IS THAT, HUH. As the conclusion, smiles is needed in our daily life.

      So the question now is how do smile affect others? Isn’t it only a facial expression to show your feelings?

      Because smiles are contagious, surprisingly. So, if you are smiling, they can’t help themselves than smile back. If they don’t, they are actually faking it and tries not to smile. 😄😄😄 (is the emoticon works on you? is it making you smile? tell me down below!)

      does it make you smile?
      If you still can’t smile, let me help you. Make sure to follow all the steps though.

      1 | Start with making your lips to be as straight as lines (choose to be in the ‘blur’ expression)

      2 | Then, make an arch/curve on both sides of your mouth

      3 | Slowly, repeat it with a bigger arch/curve

      4 | Look in front the mirror, dangg- you are now smiling!

      But it shouldn’t turn out like this tho
      Imma tag 5 more people to do this since it is fun, and it spreads positivity! (and I’ll get an extra entry too😛)

      Bella (@TotallyRandom) – she’s new to this blogger community. Check out her blog, and give her some support!

      That’s it for today! Comment down below your thoughts or anything and see ya!

      p/s if you smiled, comment ‘🦄 ‘

    2. Reblogged this on Closet Readers and commented:
      It is dark, the kind of dark that is intimidating
      and they all fumble and stumble, lost
      Their eyes open wide but they still can’t see
      Not past the darkness that is thick and smothering
      Then comes the light which slices through the darkness
      Lighting up the room spreading positive energy.

      Image result for lightbulb

      If the only light in the sea of darkness isn’t lit, it will remain dark.

      You are that light you carry that positive energy. Every smile, every compliment every single good deed lights up the room and eradicates the darkness.

      You can start a chain reaction of positivity. It starts with one and then two and three and the world slowly becomes a brighter place. You never know how a smile, a compliment, a helpful hand can impact someone in a positive way.

      You can change the world.

      But where to start?

      Sasha @ The Stylish Dreamer started a challenge called #spreadsmiles. All you have to do is carry on the chain reaction.

      Yes, You

    4. Wow congrats on all those followers!!! The blog theme you shared with us is so gorgeous, I love it! Tomorrow l I’ll try to remember to come back to this post, and comment if I did some of the things on this list at school ;). My school is pretty darn small, so almost everyone is always really friendly (luckily!). Funnily enough though, I just started talking to a few people a lot more, even though everyone has known each other for at least a few years. Anyways, fun contest, and I’m so happy you’ve reached this milestone!!

        1. GIRL horses are my life! xD I didn’t know that you rode – that’s soo cool! I lease a horse at a barn near my house. It’s really convenient because I can ride her whenever, learn all of the responsibilities of owning a horse, but also have someone else leasing as well to help with costs and taking care of it. :))

        2. OMG that is so cool!! Unfortunately I don’t ride-but I really really want to. Since I don’t live near the countryside,I only get to ride horses if I go to the park or to the sea side but I LOVE horses too! And that is such a great plan. I love the idea of leasing out a horse! What is it’s name? ❤️

    6. 🌼☀️😺😁
      You said to be creative as you like with this one, and so I was. I found the nice things I ALREADY do and do more of them. For example, today I helped my mum tidy up, I do that anyways, but today I did loads of things to help her. Replying to email – already do that but now i make sure I’m extra nice! This way I can #SpreadSmiles! I think that I was quite creative with this one ❤

      I smiled at 5 people! My parents, and siblings and some random peeps! I think that was about 8 in total so I'm pretty happy about that!

      I think I've done everything now. Post, tag, reblog, etc… Can't wait to see who wins!

        1. I forgot to say what I did for the emojis:
          For the smile one: I smile at everyone who I make eye contact with
          For the doing something nice one: I left sticky notes around with kind words on it, I loved watching everyone’s reactions 🙂

I still have to ask my mom’s permission, but I should be able to enter!! I’ll be doing my positive post tomorrow, because it fits right in with my posting schedule. Would a post on self-worth be considered positive? And I’ve smiled at five or more people today, so 🌼☀😺😁 I love your blog design!! It’s super pretty!!
