Blog Layout/Guided Tour


I thought I would give you a guided tour around my blog.  I've tried to make my blog as clear and uncluttered as possible, as from experience, I personally don't enjoy reading blogs where the page is really busy and it's complicated to get from one post to the next and to find your way around.  Therefore I'll just give a little guided tour of the layout of this blog...but please give me feedback on how you think it looks and areas for improvement.  

Okay so we have in the centre of the page the blog posts...and you all know how this works, the most recent post appears at the top, with a comments box below each post nice comments accepted ( I know I maybe teaching my granny how to suck eggs here but just as a starting point to the tour).  

To the left of the page we have the About me section, it's currently blank but I will fill in soon. 

Following this are my 5 latest tweets and a link to my twitter so you can follow if you like.

 Below this are the share it widgets so you can spread the "hype" about this blog.

Bottom left are the followers list and the subscribe option- who will be my first follower and subscriber...oooooo??? 

Home Button bottom of every page - thats a given. 

To the right - Search Box

Below you will find the blog archive listed by year and month.

My New Mission!

Hello All 

Hopefully more than a few will stumble across this tiny speck of a "blog" in the midst and grandeur of the professional bloggers out there and find it mildly interesting!

I love scouring the web for new blogs - I particularly look for blogs featuring beauty product reviews (always helpful when pondering and contemplating new products- especially fake tan - it's a mine field out there in the land of DHA's, and when somebody finds a safe route it is always best practice to follow in their footsteps to stay tango-free!).

I'm also Vintage - mad/crazy/obsessive - therefore love vintage blogs, website and the odd charity shop, to find a unique and quirky item that no-one else (or at least only a select few others) have come across.  

I've had a really busy year so far and will inform of my adventures in other blog posts - as a teaser these range from trying to source my ideal hair colour, new fringes, holiday body hang ups, boot camp experiences, being completely stressed over college work and attempting the National 3 Peak Challenge! 

For the time being though, let's just say I now feel I have enough time to concentrate on blogging and  you could say it's my new project.  I will just be sharing my experiences and hopefully my blogs/rants*/reviews/thoughts/opinions and basically just general rambles will entertain and inform readers as much as I enjoy the blogs I follow (I will list my faves in a blog post and will be welcoming suggestions of others too! The more the merrier and all that , Jazz).  

*Must put a pre-warning out there that there may more than likely be a more than comfortable amount of rants - I mainly get peeved on a daily basis - but I promise to not blog-rant daily.  I may save all my daily rants and maybe do a "Sunday Special" as a round up of the weeks annoyances all in one weekly post? Anyway I'll see how that goes.  

But mainly expect beauty blogs - don't you just hate it when people don't share their beauty tips?!?! - It's as if people want to keep all the little secrets/top tips/best products to themselves so they stay beautiful whilst I hobble around looking rank trying to find the answer to my beauty dilemmas! So I would accept your top tips and thoughts and reviews on products too :)

So a big welcome and Thank You to all reading this please return for more blog posts - only if you enjoy it though and if you do please tell others about Love-Leigh Leigh and soon I will be Best Blogger of the Universe!!!

Muchos Gracias!
