Hello my darlings? How are you doing today? Isn't it crazy we arrive already to the end of January? Where have this month gone?
Firstly, I'd like to remind you of my GIVEAWAY which is still going  for one more week, so if you haven't entered yet, what are you waiting for??!!
Organizing this giveaway was much fun to me, so you can bet it won't be the last time! This was also a way for me to have an important feedback from readers as what they think about my blog. I'm most interested in knowing your honest opinion. BUT, of course, I can't change everything of everything, because it would stop being MY blog, wouldn't it?
In one thing I agree with a lot of you who had commented: the looks did not completely satisfied me.
As you may have noticed (well, not if it's the first time you visit the blog!) I've introduced a few changes to the way my blog looks like. I've been intending to do that from the beginning, but I was a bit lazy and just picked one standard layout when I started the blog.
Now, I'm not a web designer or anything, so I keep a layout from blogger  because
I like having the sidebar and the tab bar, and all that. I like simple things, and blogger simplifies my life, so I take it.
I've changed the colours to a more cold-neutral tones (of course purple-ish had to be part of it ;)). But above all I've tried to choose something that goes with my personality, my blog, and that I LIKE. 
I don't mean to be rude or anything, but I'm over thirty and life has taught me YOU JUST CAN'T MAKE EVERYONE HAPPY. I've chosen a background that I consider feminine, romantic and somewhat simple without being plain, because that's how I see myself. I really hope you like it, but if you don't, well, just bear with it, LOL!!
As for the rest of your suggestions, I've appreciated a lot your insights. I've read and evaluated every single one, and some things sounded great to me, and some others just won't do for me. 
I'll try to play with the tab bar under my blog header, so that you'll have ease of access to different things going on (challenge posts, special occasion nail art e.g. Valentine's Day, etc). I've also considered introducing a tab with "About me" subject. But I'm still thinking about it. I've added a "Wishlist" tab with the polishes I'm longing to own and a tab that leads to a list of nail art techniques I'd love to try. And I will most likely do something about the labels cloud which is unreadable! LOL
The small changes are just "cosmetic" and the spirit of my blog remains intact, this is my HOBBY. As much as I love to write, interact, and play with nail polish, I do not do this for a living and I do have a BUSY REAL LIFE going on, so I'm not to the point to even consider buying new cameras, tripods, lamps, or modifying rooms of my home, spending any more time and money that I do already for this blog (I'm considering to spend less, in fact). And that does not mean I do not love you to pieces ;D !!!
Looking forward to read your feedback!
