Oh yes, finally, the new site is live! I still can’t believe this is real. Can somebody pinch me, please? You might understand why I am feeling like this, because we have been working on the new TC Style Clues since February this year. Honestly it has been feeling like forever. The sleepless nights, the nail-biting moments, hundreds of revisions, endless and endless research, tiny little details, and then finally when the design was finished, there were the endless days of re-organizing hundreds of posts, creating all the new “Shop The Post” widgets, pasting in the different pages and setting up my brand new e-commerce store. The process took months and it sometimes felt like it was never-ending. I could nitpick over one tiny problem for a week straight. It has been a very, very long ride, so as you can imagine, I am beyond thrilled with this gorgeous new space that I can call my own. All this couldn’t have happened if it weren’t for the wonderful team from Kotryna Bass Design. Web developer Tomas went out of his way to make sure everything would look just the way I liked it. His ongoing patience was absolutely admirable. If by any chance you are looking for a new custom-made website, a fresh pre-made blog template or would like to migrate your blog to another platform? Tomas and Kotryna will make it happen for you.
As you can see we literally changed everything here. After 6 years of blogging on a Blogger blog, I finally made the change to run TC Style Clues on self-hosted WordPress. I have been eager to make the change for years, and I had put it on hold for way too long. The limitations I had on Blogger.com made me lose all inspiration to keep on blogging. I started posting less and fewer articles, so at that point, I just knew I had to make a change. I can not be happier I did. This beautiful space has made the all difference to get my creative juices flowing again. I can’t wait to start posting fresh new fashion, travel and beauty content for you all.
So about the layout. Well, the design has changed drastically, and as you can see, it has been quite the makeover. First of all, I wanted to use fonts and colors that would look fresh and modern with a luxurious appeal. I chose a color palette of a pale blush and added gold touches in the fonts and layout. The category font at the top of each post in a luxe gold handwriting is so totally me. The cool thing is that you can browse articles through the categories displayed on the homepage now. Check out my fashion tips and style inspiration under the category Street Style. Browse the summer outfits I wear in Bali under Bali Style and find extensive travel tips and the latest beauty reviews under Travel and Beauty.
I receive emails and messages from readers on a regular basis asking me where to stay in Bali. I have added this specific category for you guys to search for places to stay. You can all find it under the category: “Where To Stay”. What I am most excited about, is my brand new e-commerce store named TC’s Boutique selling the hottest Bali Bags right here on my own website. The cool thing about TC’s Boutique is that I will be selling Bali bags that are even unique and hard to find in Bali, so you guys should know you will be buying and wearing something special. Go ahead click through the new site, head over to TC’s Boutique and let me know what you all think! I would love to hear your thoughts on the new website.
