It’s Here! A New Musings of a Muse!

musings of a muse new 2012

Thanks to the Moxiegirls (especially Joelle) for creating a gorgeous new Musings of a Muse experience for us all (and for dealing with my insanity, I’m not an easy person to deal with when it comes to Musings, she’s my baby!).

I hope you love it as much as I do.

I think it looks amazing!

Hopefully it improves your overall browsing experience.

If you have any issues or problems with the site please feel free to contact me so I can iron out the details.

Enjoy!

Brand new posts upcoming tomorrow!

        Talking about issues, I subbed for follow-up comments notif, instead I received ALL comments BUT my own comment’s follow-up, so I had to unsub as they’re flooding my inbox. Hopefully this can be fixed. :)
        Looking forward to your new posts!!

    Long time reader (first time poster)…I love the new look, Muse. From the peach color to the font choice; it’s really sophisticated. Congratulations!

    Love it! The design kinda reminds me of how some of the retro beauty brands look.

      I think Joelle was going with vintage Parisian Amy, but def a little vintage/retro beauty in there too ;D

    It’s…amazing…

    I’ve been working on setting up my own blog the past few days, and this layout is exactly what I wish mine would look like. It’s damn near perfection. Maybe one day, if I get my blog going and stick with it, mine could look as fancy as this. I can only dream…

      aw thanks xero! I sure hope you had success with your new template! ;-D

    So much less scrolling! I likey! And the peach tones are very you , you always seem to gravitate toward peach blush, lippies etc. excellent job!

    So different! I’m loving the colour – I think the title of the posts could be a bit bigger – love the font and everything – it’s like Art deco!

  • 5/30/12 22:53 Alanna:

    Oh wow, it’s so pretty! I looooove the peach, ehehehe~
    The only things I would change would be to be able to refine brand reviews and articles by type of product, like Holika Holika>Makeup>Face>BB Cream, or something like that, and also to have navigation on the right side rather than the left (although that’s really just personal preference!). Overall it’s really easy on the eyes and I like the clean reading experience, no flashing or off crazy bits to cause distraction. :)

    • 5/30/12 23:01 the Muse:

      hi alanna mmm that would be tough. it would be endless scrolling if I put a brand name into a parent directory with sub directories for each product. Sorry about that, that’s prob a no go. typically we western readers read left to right so it seems more logical to have it on the right side…plus I think it actually loads first on the right side (I recall reading that somewhere) which makes for speedy page loading! but glad you like stuff overall :)

      Reply

      • 5/30/12 23:09 Alanna:

        Ack, I meant to reverse that! I meant left rather than right, hahaha. Doop doop, silly me.
