Changes - Lily Melrose





As you have probably noticed I have a new layout which is a Pipdig layout that I customised to my own taste (fonts etc). It still needs a new header - which me and Jon will be shooting next week as well as a bunch of other little custom features Im still coding. I thought it was about time I did a little update about what exactly is going on with this site.

Im currently working on moving all my content from ETCLLYMLRS onto this site thus making it all one big site. You may have noticed that towards the end of the year I stopped posting so much on my beauty blog. Not because I was done with posting about beauty I just wanted to work out exactly what I wanted to do this two websites. I've come to the conclusion it's time to close it down and move it over here.

Therefore from the next few days onwards this site will have a mix of fashion, beauty and lifestyle content. I want to just keep all my stuff in one place from now on and not have to worry about keeping two blogs in check all the time. Running two blogs and keeping consistent quality isnt all that easy!

I want to incorporate more music related things on this blog as well as advice, lifestyle and travel elements. In 2014 I rediscovered my love of music and had the opportunity to travel the world. Those two things have really changed my life and I want to reflect that within my blogging in 2015.

Youtube wise - I plan on making videos soon. I don't know when but I do plan on doing something... uh soon. I loved Youtube in the early months of last year but something slipped towards the end and I feel like I cant quite find my place. Youtube is so over saturated with people making the same types of videos it's so hard to carve a place for yourself when an set "style" is already out there. The long and short of it is that I know what kind of videos I want to make ... I think. Im just not quite sure how to make them quite yet!

Anyway, The bottom line is Im throwing myself back into blogging again to behind 2015. I've got loads of ideas for things I want to talk about and new posts to produce. Feeling inspired and motivated almost 6 years down the line has been a struggle but I still absolutely love blogging. I'm constantly inspired by others to push myself further and harder and change perceptions. Blogging is such a huge industry these days and I feel so proud to be part of it.

  2. I am loving your current layout! Can't wait until it will be fully complete, and running two blogs and youtube is a really hard task, glad you two blogs will be merged together, good luck with that. xx

  7. As a long time follower of both this blog and your beauty blog it will be great seeing it all integrated into the one place. I'm aiming to integrate more lifestyle and outfit posts on my blog, which at the moment is mostly beauty and it really is exciting to try and blend all the different content into one consistent blog.
    All the best for 2015 and I look forward to seeing what you get up to this year, especially travel wise! :)

  9. Nice new layout - but your ad units now overlay you post. You need to change the dimensions of your side bar :)

  23. I like the new lay out :) I totally agree with you, it makes sense to have just one blog featuring lots of different things, rather than limiting one to just fashion or just beauty.

  24. I love that you're moving everything to the one blog - definitely makes things more easier as a follower too! I also have to say that I adore your youtube videos & I love that you are not afraid to do your own thing and not be just another youtuber. Your style & personality really shine through which I think makes you stand apart in a fantastic way. Can't wait to see all the things you have coming up!

  29. I read both of your blogs anyway, so it's not a huge change for me! Always enjoyed them both :)
    And I'm looking forward to your "new style" of youtube videos. I'm at a similar point, where I don't quite know what to do with my channel. I enjoy filming and editing, but I think so many videos drown in this oversaturated place!

  37. I absolutely love the new layout, its definitely refreshing coming over and seeing a change. I also love that you're going to have everything in one place as I absolutely love both your blogs and would hate to see the content of one of them go. Good luck to keeping up the motivation and I really can't wait to see whats to come from you xx

  40. Love your new layout, Lily! Looking forward to seeing you back on YouTube, whenever that may be. Your videos are my favourites, precisely because they're not the same old stuff that everyone else uploads, you stay true to yourself and you're honest and people respect that. :)

  58. I'm a long term reader and personally I loved the old layout, it reminded me of when you would share pages of your sketch book and do round ups of your favorite illustrators and artists! Can't wait to see what you do in 2015, I'll be reading for sure :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  59. Completely agree about YouTube! Its really hard to find a niche and blog niche's don't always work! I am glad you have decided to merge the blogs and love the changes you are making :) You were the first blog I ever read/followed so these changes are odd as I keep expecting a grey site but 100% for the better as its much cleaner and more user friendly now!

  60. I think it's a great idea to have everything on the one website. I also would LOVE it if you made it so that your links opened in a separate page so that you don't have to click back to get back to yours x
