(Nearly) New Year - New Look!

So you may have noticed, since the last time you popped over to see what I was rambling on about, that I have a whole new look. It's fresh, crisp and clean... a bit like a washed baby lettuce leaf. N'aaw! Hang on... wet lettuce? Well, whatever anyway, I love it.

I've been blogging now for over 3 and a half years. I've worked with some awesome brands on collaborations that I never even dreamed that I'd be chosen for and I've met some pretty awesome people too, be it celebs; other bloggers; or you readers. Amazingly, I even inspired some of my closest friends to create and run their own blogs too and boy do they do a good job.

Sometimes though it's easy to get comfortable, and I realised this when one of my aforementioned friends went self hosted last month after 1 year of blogging. I'll be honest and say that I was terrified to make any changes at all, wildly thinking "what if I lost everything?!" but if One Frazzled Mum could do it, then so could I. Actually, I had to... she bought my domain name for me as a gift!

So, look up at the URL bar guys ^^^

... Welcome to carsonsmummy.co.uk  - My very own, real, grown-up, website!

I'm no longer a blogspot blog! But don't worry if that confuses you, because you can still access here using the old URL thanks to the powers of redirection. Phew!

Hopefully it hasn't all thrown you too much and you can still find immense pleasure from my enthralling ramblings (as is always, I'm sure) However if there's something you feel missing compared to my old theme, or you are having issues with anything at all I would love to know. Any extra suggestions would be just as awesome, although chocolate dispensing computers may be hard to provide so let's be sensible about this! 

I write for you guys to read so I would love to hear your thoughts on the new look!

Loadsa love as always,

Jo xx
