Hey There! Welcome to The Beaux Diaries. My new resigned blog is finally live and I'm so excited to share it with you all.
A couple of months ago I decided my blog needed a little renovation as I just wasn't happy with it. So I made the decision to move over from Wordpress to Squarespace and I'm so happy with the result. Squarespace has fabulous templates and is really easy to use. I was forever getting frustrated with Wordpress and it just wasn't working for me.
It's taken me a little while to resign my blog and as you can see its completely different. The first thing you may notice is the name change. Previously it was L's Beauty Spot -This was a really last minute decision a week before going live with my new blog I decided to change it to The Beaux Diaries. Bit of a risk, I know, as I have build up a lovely little readership with L's Beauty Spot. But hopefully my readers will embrace the change and continue to enjoy reading my beauty ramberlings! (emphasise on HOPE) eek!!
I took inspiration for the name from Ernest Beaux the famous 1920's perfumer who created Chanel No 5. I loved the name and had a play around and came up with The Beaux Diaries as this is my little online diary of beauty and lifestyle.
Other changes you may notice around the blog is the Categories section on the home page. I love this when I see it on a blog as I feel it starts you off which a choice of what to read. Or if you prefer you can just click the blog section on the homepage and be directed to my latest posts. I've added a few new categories: Currently Obsessing over, Out and About and Lifestyle. I'm aiming to fill up 'Out and About' and 'Lifestyle' in the new year. Although my main love is writing about Beauty I wanted to add a little more to the blog. I hope you enjoy reading them.
I've added Disqus as a commenting system. Sadly I have lost all my previous comments from L's Beauty Spot when I transferred over my content, so I wanted to make it super easy for you guys to leave comments. It means the world to me and I'm so grateful when people take the time out to leave a comment and I will always reply. So by adding Disqus I hope you find it really easy to leave comments and also reply to comments left by others.
Content is still the same with posts twice or three times a week. Posts will be live on Wednesday and Sundays and hopefully Fridays too. I would love to post more but at the moment my busy work, family and home schedule is too hectic.
Also you can now subscribe to my blog and be notified of news, updates and new blog posts. If you'd like to subscribe just leave your email address in one of the subscription boxes.
There's a few other changes around the blog - I'll sign off now and let you have a browse!
Thanks for reading and I hope you like the new redesigned blog?
I'd love to hear what you think of The Beaux Diaries
