Hi guys! You may notice something a little different about the blog...haha! My blog turned 1 recently (10 days ago actually) and I wanted to give shiwashiful. a bit of a spice up!

I actually cannot believe it's been a year since I started up my little 'baby', it seems like no time has passed at all! I started the blog sort of on a whim and I had no idea what would become of it, whether it would last a few months, or years or whether I would even enjoy it. I thought I might get tired of blogging, but I still actually look forward to sitting down and writing a post, or taking photos (though at times it can be frustrating!). Blogging has become such a huge hobby of mine and I never expected the things that have come from this blog to have happened. I've met some amazing gals who I think of as my beauty blogger friends (and hopefully they think the same of me!) and I really enjoy reading and replying to the comments you guys leave me! I actually had no idea whether anyone was going to read my blog, or if it was 'worth' doing but I'm so glad that I kept at it. I really hope that my blog continues to grow, but I do appreciate every single one of you who takes even a moment to read my blog, comment or even just glance at my photos - getting pretty cliche, I know!
Anyway, even though I loved shiwashiful.'s old design, I really wanted to give it a fresh lick of paint since it's been rocking it for a whole year. Although I loved the colourful-ness, I felt it could get a little busy at times. I wanted the design to 'grow up' a bit and take on a cleaner, more minimalistic design. I'm extremely happy with how it turned out! It definitely took me a while to compose all the images and then code it all in - am I the only one who hates coding? Even my studying ITS didn't help...haha. Big thanks to Lena for helping me out with my Popular Posts section, and to all you beauty blogger girls for giving me some much needed inspiration!
Do you guys like the new design? Let me know!
