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

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… πŸ˜ƒ

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.. πŸ˜‰

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! 

Alright….

The thing is ..

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!

Also most importantly for being an amazing mom in general! Thanks a million! πŸ™‚

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!

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 πŸ™‚

    My Blog Makeover | Part Three | Sneak peek at my NEW Blog Design + Fun tips

    Hi everyone! 

    OMG! We finally made it to Part 3! And Thank you all so so much for your votes! I really really appreciated it.All of your lovely comments seriously made my day! 

    And a MASSIVE thank you to all of you who have nominated me for awards and tags! It honestly makes me so happy! 😊

    Personally whenever I get nominated for something I get really excited and I feel elated because it’s kind of like proof that someone likes your posts or your blog so much that they nominate you for something. 

    So THANK YOU all so so much!!! 

    Soo…anyway… you have probably noticed by now that there has been a minor  major change in my blog.

    And you know what this means….

    The Design party is over….

    And

    My Blog Makeover is almost done! 

    This is something that I have mixed feelings about because the design process has been so much fun and this mini series has been a blast so that is something I’m going to miss.

     But, I’m really liking my blog design so far and I hope that you do too which is why I wanted to give you all a little preview with this post haha…

     This post is sort of like a little ramble because I have a really MASSIVE blog update planned and I don’t want to give anything too exciting away,but I still really really wanted to write a post to sort of explain what was going on.

     ( I’m so so sorry for the wait! But you know what they say… Anticipation is good for the soul!) At least I hope so! haha…

    Anyway, unfortunately I still haven’t decided on my theme yet ( my current one is nucleare) but I’ll keep all of you posted on how that goes! 

    Anyway! 

    Here is my header! 


    Unfortunately I decided not to use the headers that I had made previously because I found out that they didn’t really go with what I wanted so I had to change it but I did use the basic layout for which all of you had voted on…

    And this is my background!


    Also! I don’t want to reveal too much but I am adding a fun new feature to my blog! 
    I’m doing something that I call a ‘Quote Corner’ and over there I will be transferring some of my fave quotes into wallpapers and I will be updating it whenever I post my weekly blog posts! 

    And the best part is that you can download it or save it and use it for free! Just make sure to give credit if you are using it for other purposes or on your blog and don’t distribute/ reproduce without permission and please don’t use it as your own design. 

    I also discovered a few thingsin the midst of redecorating and I thought that I’d share a few tips! 


    My colour palette was very large so I couldn’t incorporate all the colours everywhere so I had to narrow it down to five colours instead of seven which was awful because I really LOVED all of those colours so instead of using them as my main colours,I decided to add them in wherever I could! 

    It was also much easier to design with less colours but still make the designs  colourful and fun,so I definitely recommend that you don’t have more than five colours on your colour palette. 


    My mood board came in handy a lot especially when I was deciding how I wanted my blog to look. I think it really helps to see what you want altogether and I think a mood board is the perfect way to display that! 

    This also helps when you need to decide a theme. I recommend making a list of the features that you want your blog to have and then selecting your theme because then not only wil it be easier to narrow down your options but also you will be getting exactly what you want! 


    Stay organized always! Make a list of the things that you need to do and the graphics you need to make etc. You could even make yourself a little schedule!

    My awesome friend Mahriya actually told me this, and she told me to make a list of the things that I needed to get done so that way it would be easier for me to tick off what I have already done. 

      Personally I love lists and I can’t get enough of them so this was perfect for me and you also feel more organized if you have a list and you also get a sense of accomplishment after you tick each thing off of your list. 


      And of course! Most importantly have fun! Design is all about expressing yourself and having fun so go ahead and have fun! Enjoy every single second of it because you are doing something you love! 

      I really really hope that these tips help you out and that you found this mini series fun and useful! I had a TON of fun writing these posts haha…

      Also another MASSIVE thank you to my amazing friends Farah and Mahriya for their awesome design tips and for their help in general! Both of them are not only awesome bloggers but awesome graphic designers as well so do check out their blogs.

       Trust me, you will love them!

      Unfortunately we have finally come to the end of the Design Party but it’s okay because there will definitely be more fun parties in the future! 

      But until then:

      Keep Dreaming!

      My Blog Makeover | Part 1 | Plans and Pretty Things

      Hi everyone! 

      First of all….

      Aaaahhhhh!!!

       I’m so excited! I’m finally going to redo my blog! 

      I’ve been planning this for simply ages and I can’t  wait to share it all with all of you! So,for the next few days prepare for a design party! 

      In this blog post I will not only be sharing how I am redoing my blog but also tips and ideas as well! 

      Let the Design Party begin! 


      So the first thing I did was get inspiration. 

      I collected pictures and wallpapers and quotes. Anything I liked and anything that gave me inspiration was saved into my blog folder.

      This was one of my favourite parts of The Makeover because I found it a lot of fun to look at pictures and go through other blogs for design inspiration.

      I really love stripes,polka dots,bright colours and quotes so I made sure to save a LOT of those!


      The next thing I did was make a mood board!

       I picked out all of my favourite pictures from the ones that I had collected and I put it into a grid so I could compare the colours and the patterns and see if they all went well together and complemented each other.

       Here you can put in all those colours and random patterns and quotes which will form your colour palette. This step is important because it is the first glimpse of how your blog could potentially look like! 

      Here is what my mood board looks like!


      I used PhotoGrid to put this all together and I’m already loving how it looks!

       Don’t be afraid to play around with different textures,colours and patterns like I did. With my mood board I found it really easy to plan my blog colour palette and extra features! 

      Which leads me to the next step..


      It was finally time to put my mood board into action and plan! 

      I decided that my colour palette would be –


      Hot Pink,Turquoise,Black,White,Lilac and Blush Pink! 

      I would also be having a few touches of Gold (for the extra glam!) and Glitter (Because you HAVE to have Glitter!) 

      I know it’s an awful lot of colours but they all complement each other perfectly and it’s really easy to incorporate them into all of my posts.( and they are all my fave colours haha)

      I also have a little idea in my head of how I want my blog to look like but you will find out the finished outcome in the final post of this mini series. πŸ˜‰ ( I CANNOT WAIT!)

      Let me know in the comments down below what you think about my colour palette and mood board! I really hope you like them!

      I would also LOVE to know if you would like any extra features/special things on my blog or even just blog post ideas that you want to see! 

      I’m super excited for Part 2 because it’s going to involve a bit of voting and a LOT of fun!

      Keep dreaming!

      DIY Nutella Lip Balm!Β 

      Hi everyone! 

      Do you have chapped lips? Love chocolate? Ever wanted to test out the healing powers of chocolate in a different way? Want to be a little more creative? 

      Then this is for you! 

      I came up with an awesome DIY Nutella Lip Balm Recipe!

      I also really miss doing posts on my series ‘My Nutella Obsession’ so I thought that I would also make a Throwback  Thursday post.

      But,unfortunately it’s not Thursday. Yet.

      Which is why this post is a tad bit later than usual. 

      But anyway,it doesn’t really matter what day you are reading this because I’m combining two of my fave things together! Lip balm and Nutella! Let’s get started! 


      • A Container to store your lip balm ( I used an old lip balm container) 
      • Two Spoonfuls Petroleum Jelly
      • I Spoonful of Nutella 
      • Most importantly a Spoon πŸ˜‚

      • Start off my melting your petroleum jelly in the microwave at thirty second intervals. 

      • After each interval, don’t forget to smush down your petroleum jelly with a spoon ( this process is surprisingly satisfying)  I had to repeat Step 1 for about 4-5 times,but I suppose it all really depends on your microwave 

      • Then add in your spoonful of Nutella and melt it in the microwave again! 

        • Once it is liquid,pour it into your container and refrigerate it for about five minutes.

        I just love this lip balm because :

        • It tastes like Nutella ( Unfortunately you can’t eat it though) 
        • It looks good
        • It’s lip balm! 
        • It’s a DIY and it’s super easy!

        • Remember to work fast because petroleum jelly turns to a solid very quickly. 
        • Unless you are making in bulk, don’t add in too much of the ingredients because although it looks little when it’s melted, there is quite a lot of it.

        I hope you try this out! Trust me,you will love it! Comment down below if you like lip balm and Nutella! ( because who doesn’t love Nutella ) and if you are going to give this lip balm a go! I’d love to know! ( that rhymed haha) 

        Keep Dreaming!

        The Ultimate Harry Potter Collab!Β 


        Two potterheads together, get ready for a Harry Potter fan girl marathon!

        Hi everyone! 

        I’m collabing with the AMAZING Mahriya @mybookishlife.wordpress.com

        Be sure to read her post about her Potterheadness! 

        So, for this collab,The two of us decided to join Pottermore! This was my first time making an account there and I was amazed to say the least. The website itself was a goldmine for any potterhead or even simply a person who enjoyed reading Harry Potter. My favorite feature was the patronus quiz because it was so gorgeous and realistic. Go check out Pottermore if you haven’t before, trust me. You won’t regret it! 

        I took the house quiz and I found out that I was in….

        Drumroll please! 


        Hufflepufff! Yay! I simply love my house and I can now say that I’m a proud Hufflepuff.Most of my friends said that I would be a Hufflepuff but I wanted to see for myself and they were right! I really like my house because it’s warm, friendly and happy and the common room is simply lovely! I also got an AWESOME ‘welcome to Hufflepuff’ letter by my house prefect and now I’m properly settled into my house. 😊

        I also took the patronus quiz and it is a…..


        Manx cat! I love cats so I’m really happy. I especially love Manx cats because they have no tail and I think that’s really cute! The patronus quiz was amazing ( I’m saying it again!)and I loved taking it, it was simply magical! 

        There is also a new school of magic which is in America and it is known as Ilvermony and my Ilvermony house is….


        Thunderbird! This house is LOVELY! First of all my house colours are gorgeous! Gold and White are super pretty colours! And thunderbird favors adventurers! I love the fact that my house is named after a majestic beast and when I read the history of Ilvermony houses,thunderbird was immediately my favorite! But I’ve got to admit I belong to Hogwarts and not Ilvermony because after all Hogwarts is where the Hufflepuff’s are! 

        No offense to any Ilvermonians! 

        And last but DEFINITELY NOT least-My wand! 


        MY WAND HAS UNICORN HAIR!!! And I read about it and it said that this wand is very loyal and easy to use and it is kind of rare to get a wand that is 10 3/4″ in length because usually wands are 9″ or 11″ so that’s really cool too! 

        And now for a round of potterhead questions. 

        • Why are you a Potterhead?

        I’m a Potterhead because I fell in love with the books as soon as I read them and I became obsessed with the series!

        •  When did you begin reading Harry Potter?

        I first read Harry Potter when I was nine and I finished the whole series in a few weeks, and then I started rereading the entire series because I loved it so much! I’ve probably reread everything at least five times now. 😍

        • What were your thoughts before you read HP and after? Compare them!

        Before: 

        Everyone who read it loved it and my mum told me to read it and I didn’t want to because when I was very little,I watched my brother play a game called ‘ Harry Potter and the half blood prince’ and I got very scared when I saw Harry playing quidditch as it looked so scary.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚( I was five!)

         But since I was dying out of boredom, I decided to give it a go and as soon as I read the first page, I was hooked.

        After:

        I couldn’t believe it was over and I was simply dying to read more. I was super happy with the ending though! I decided to reread it and whenever anyone asked me to recommend a book for them to read, I immediately said ” Harry Potter” and then I converted them to be potter heads like me! 

        What can I say? I’m not guilty. It was for their own good. 

        • Did you read the books first or the watch the movies?

        I read the books first and then I watched the movies, And I’m so so glad it happened that way because I feel like if I watched the movies first, then they would have ruined the books for me.

        • Have you watched all the movies?

        Unfortunately no 😭I really want to though! 

        • What’s the most Potter-ish thing you’ve done?

        Hmmmm….. I don’t really know to be honest….

        I think saving my friends from the horrors of never finding out about Harry Potter is probably one thing.πŸ˜‚

        • Your thoughts on Cursed Child?

        I liked it but I didn’t LOVE it like I loved the series, partly because JK Rowling didn’t write it and partly because it was a play script and I was expecting much more… so that was a little disappointing. 

        • Favourite character and why?

        Hermoine Granger is definitely my favorite character because she is brave, smart and she oozes girl power. ❀️

        •  Favourite house and why?

        Well, it used to be Gryffindor but now since I am a Hufflepuff, it’s Hufflepuff! 

        •  Favourite book and why?

        *Spoiler Alert* 

        *** Warning***

        Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban was my favorite because I found out that Harry had a godfather and there was a lot more about his parents and their past,and I love the fact that the patronus charm was also introduced in this book.

        • Favourite scene/chapter?

        ** Warning again!**

        ’19 Years Later’

        -was definitely my favorite part especially the part when Albus was worried about being in Slytherin and Harry tells him that he was named after Severus Snape who was in Slytherin, and Severus was one of the bravest people he knew. 

        • Favourite HP quote?

        •  Saddest death?

        There were too many! I think Sirius Black’s death and Dumbledore’s death were probably the saddest ones though! I cried so much!! 

        • A scene or thing you would’ve changed in the HP books

        Sirius, Fred and Dobby shouldn’t have died, Dobby should have lived and served for Harry as a free house elf and Fred and George could have continued their shop and Sirius could have lived with Harry. but other than that, the books were perfect!  

        •  Favourite movie?

        I watched only the first and the second one but out of both of them ,the first one is definitely my favorite! 

        • Did you ever expect to get a letter from hogwarts?

        Yes! I did,but it’s still not arrived yet, I think Hogwarts probably thought that I could skip a year or something. πŸ˜‚

        • If you were a student in hogwarts, what subjects do you think you would be doing? And why? 

        I think I would be doing Defense against Dark Arts, Potions, Herbology, Charms and Transfiguration because all of them sound equally awesome to learn! And also I hope that Professor Mcgonagall gets to teach me! ( she was one of my favourite teachers)

        Also a HUGE thank you to Mahriya for collaborating with me!! This collab was so much fun to do and I enjoyed every single second of it! She is an Amazing friend and person who has an equally amazing blog! So don’t forget to check it out! Also Ten points to Gryffindor for her awesome skills! 

        When I found out that both of us are obsessed with Harry Potter, I knew this collab Had to happen! And it did! 

        Do comment down below and let me know your Hogwarts house and some of your answers to any of your fave questions! I can’t wait to read them! 

        There’s no denying it,we’re both potter heads! Don’t forget to read Mahriya’s post, where she fangirls about Harry Potter! 

        But remember don’t let the Potterness get to your head!
