Incendiary Blonde...now in Red!

Welcome to the new look Incendiary Blonde!

If you follow me over on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, you will have probably seen my posts about my blog makeover - the first, since I started the blog over three years ago....it was about time, don't you think?

I have to say a huuuuuuuuuuuge thank you to my clever and talented sister Andrea who took on the task of redesigning it all for me.  Also, thank you to loverboy who drew the initial sketches of me, which were used to make the blog header.  I am so lucky to have such creative, skilled and brilliant family members to help me out!

A revamp has been on the cards for a while now, especially as I wanted to incorporate my own personal makeover to a redhead, since 'Incendiary Blonde' doesn't exactly fit anymore!

Bye bye old design!

Soooooo...what do you think? Do you love the new look as much as I do? Is it preferable to the old look? Do you like the addition to the title? What do you think of the little social media icons?  

I would love to hear your thoughts!

  1. Like I said earlier, I LOVE this new design! While I'm always a fan of a playing card theme, I just think this is such a darling design! The little cartoons at the top are just too cute! And the background is really fun and unique!

  2. I like it! The design is much easier on the eyes and I really like the blond/red cartoon yous. (is that even a word?)

    I especially like the background--kind of atomic looking. :)

    1. Thanks Juliana - I agree, I think it is easier on the eyes, especially as the colours are toned down a bit.

    1. Thank you Laurence! :) I know what you mean - it took soooooo long to get around to changing the look, because I had to decide what I wanted, then get my husband to do some sketches, then I had to decide on what I wanted it to look like with my sister etc. So glad it is done now - I am very happy with it!!!

  11. I must be out of the loop! How did I miss this? I really love the new look of the blog. You're just lucky that you look equally as incendiary as a blonde or a redhead!!!
