I have a Mac! OH YEAH... and a blog...
Hola amigos! I finally got my wish and managed to get my hands on a beautiful Mac Book Pro that I've been lusting after for a good couple of years. A huge thank you to Papa F who donated a generous amount towards it as a graduation present... yes that's right by some miracle I managed to actually complete my degree! Another thank you for my trusty lime green dell for getting me there. Parting is such sweet sorrow (isn).
With a new world (literally...my backgrounds still the space desktop) at my fingertips I downloaded the inDesign and PhotoShop trials and got my creative juices flowing again. One of the things I've missed most about Uni was designing fun, if not completely useless, things. Anyone for a fake CD sleeve as a birthday present?
Of course the first thing on my mind was a re-vamp of ye old blogeth. Being quite an aesthetic person and a perfectionist at heart I've never been completely happy with any of my previous layouts. I wanted something simple, yet imaginative, with it representing my personality at the same time. For this reason I decided to start completely afresh and have ended up with a new blog and a spanking new layout. SPANKING OOHH. I'm planning on injecting a bit of colour in the header at some point but for now I am happy! I'd love to hear any of your feedback on the new design so please comment below with your thoughts/suggestions and I'd just like to take the time to thank you all for sticking with me.
My MacBook itself wouldn't be complete without a little spruce up which is why I got a bit overexcited when my Rafiki sticker arrived from eBay. I've just noticed my toy Simba in the background of this photo too...OOPS. Someone likes The Lion King a bit too much... *cough*
Next on my wishlist is an iMac and the Adobe Creative Suite when I have the funds and space. A (geek) gal can dream eh? But for now it's blogging in bed for me... and who's complaining?
