Hi lovelies! As a self-admitted beauty junkie, I can certainly appreciate the value of a good makeover. So as I started noticing issues with the functionality and style of Sparkle & Mine's old design, I decided it was time for a serious upgrade! And I am so, so, so beyond excited to finally announce the big redesign!
First of all, I'd like to send a huge shout-out to Laura of sophie & rory design shop for creating this gorgeous new design and making my vision come to life! I talk a lot about affordable products on this blog, and sophie & rory is the ultimate in affordable blog design. I would highly recommend her to any bloggers out there who want a custom blog design for an amazing deal!
Update: sophie & rory has been kind enough to offer an exclusive discount code for Sparkle & Mine readers! Enter the code "SPARKLE" at checkout to receive 10% off your purchase!
I'd also like to point out a few changes you'll find with the new design. The biggest new addition to Sparkle & Mine is a "Sponsor" section. As of July 1st, ad space will be available on my blog for very reasonable introductory prices that start at just $15. I've had a lot of interest in the past few months for this sort of thing, and I am so excited to finally be offering it! Space is very limited, so if you're interested click here!
Another major change with this new template is a new and improved comment format! The old one was pretty awful, and the past couple of weeks I was not even able to reply to your comments because of it. I will now slowly but surely be replying to each and every one of your comments left over that period of time, so be on the lookout for a response within the next few days! From this point forward, any comments left will get a reply!
I would absolutely love to hear your questions, concerns, or general feedback on the new design! ♥
