A new look!

A Little Bright - a new look header

If you visit my blog through a reader or an email subscription you might not have noticed a new look for the blog lately! After The Blogcademy one of the main things I wanted to change was the look of the blog. When I started and chose yellow as my main brand colour for A Little Bright it seemed like a natural fit, but as time went on it felt less and less like me and was starting to look a bit sad.

After a great discussion with Shauna I knew exactly what to do when I got home – and although it took a few months – I am really thrilled with the new look – it is so me and exactly what I want to convey about the things you will find here from me and things I love.

So please pop over and take a look when you get a minute – I’m still working on enhancing my product pages so there is definitely more to come!

Here is a little reminder of the makeover –

Desktop inspiration – bright, fun and floral

A Little Bright - Desktop inspiration

Ok so a confession – I change out my desktops all the time. I am constantly searching for the next, newest, brightest and shiniest desktop wallpaper for my computer, my tablet and my phone! (It’s exhausting.). So I was super thrilled to spot these gorgeous floral desktops perfect for all your devices and in such fun bright colourways from Brit & Co.

Inhale/exhale

A Pair of Pears Art Print

What is it with 2015! It is crazy, and busy and running past at a mile a minute. Or maybe I am walking slowly, too slowly to catch up. Either way business and life is constantly evolving, and making decisions about which direction to go and what to focus your time, effort and attention on requires thought, and careful thought too.

My brain definitely has too many tabs open at the moment. I need to detach from too much looking and admiring and start thinking for myself. It is time to make some big decisions and get serious.

While that is all very cryptic, I am currently enjoying a little breathing time away from it all and the emails/noise/phones/messages that are a normal part of every day. I’ll be back shortly though with – hopefully – some updates and news.
