The Simply Luxurious Life®: The Weekend & Blog Facelift!  

March 16, 2012

The Weekend & Blog Facelift!



A weekend full of rest and leisure. A weekend full of time to peruse endless magazines, read ever further into books that are aching to be finished and rest my eyes that have looked at the computer screen far too much this past week.

However, I will not begrudge the time in front of the computer as it brings what you see today – a minor facelift for The Simply Luxurious Life.  With the help of web designer Shari Miller from Little Blue Deer and the talented illustrating abilities of Inslee, a few minor changes have been made to help with quicker and more efficient navigation, as well as a more accurate depiction of the author behind the blog.



First, I’d like to share the updates that were made so that you’ll know where to find items that have been moved or tweaked:

*The social networking buttons (Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr, RSS, Email) are now located in the upper left-hand corner of the blog above the header.

*The Simply Luxurious Life bookstore which is full of books, magazines, beauty products, kitchen supplies, movies and music that I recommend is now located on the Recommendations page as well as the Book Reviews page.

*To speed up your scroll time while you navigate through the blog, you will now be able to see more posts in a shortened amount of time, and upon finding a post you wish to read, simply click on “Read More” to read the post in its entirety.

*The Lovely Sites list has been moved to the Recommendations page

*And with the opportunity to switch out the simply luxurious woman to fit the season or occasion, the logo you will now see on all the social networking sites will simply be “SL” on a white background as you see below.



I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to relax, recharge and unwind. In case your week has been a bit busy, here is a look back on the past week on The Simply Luxurious Life:

*Style Inspiration – spring color comes alive!

*The most popular post of the week - 17 Ways to Simplify Daily & Weekly Routines

*The return of financial insights and ideas - Retirement Savings: What Should the Goal Be?
*Why Not . . . Learn a New Language?

*For fashion lovers and dreamers – Roots of Style by Isabel Toledo: Book Review

*A new simple luxury to enjoy - Apricot Butter & Warm Croissants

*Last weekend . . . in case you’ve been quite busy.And this week’s newsletter – issue #92 – click here to read.

Again, I want to thank you for all of the suggestions as I went about refreshing the blog this past week. With all of updates made here, where might you want to tweak something in your life? Here is to finding the gumption to make that change you’ve always wanted.  Have a lovely weekend and until Monday, bonjour!

I love the new look! especially the new SL woman - she's so modern and chic. I want to be her... which is, I'm sure, exactly what you were going for.

LOVE the new illustration! This is by far my most favourite blog to read. Sometimes I stray away from it for a while but the weekly newsletter brings me back and once again my life seems to get back on a positive track. Thanks Shannon.
