Hey guys!

I thought I would give you a little update before I discuss the elephant in the room (i.e. my theme change).

On Tuesday I moved in to my second year accommodation at the University of York and I am super excited to get back in to studying and having a proper house – I feel so adult. I’m sure you have noticed that I have still been reasonably regular with posting but because I have been settling in it has been a little less active than I would have wanted the past week so I apologise for that my lovelies.

It is also my birthday in 2 or so weeks time so I have some fun posts lined up for then too!

I absolutely love homeware and decorating my bedroom so be warned that you may see several homeware hauls and my bedroom room tour in weeks to come, which I really hope you’ll enjoy. I also have my first beauty post coming up for you soon so I hope you’re excited to see what that is all about.

Soooo, the theme… ay?

I absolutely loved my old theme as you could easily see all my blog posts in one go but it seemed a little impersonal and I’m not yet at a financial point to fund a more suitable theme for my requirements so I ignored it and soldiered on.

Although.. I have recently thought that it was way too dark and I had a lot of difficulty with uploading good quality featured images. I love white mainly and having a bright atmosphere so having a very dark blog seemed a little un-me?

I had another browse of the free themes available to me and I came across this one – ta da!

So now my blog has had a little tint and blow dry and looks a bit more fresh and way more up my street.
I do apologise in advance as I am still tweaking it so there may be little changes here and there over the next week (I’m a bit of a perfectionist!)

I really hope you like the slightly new look to TESTAROSSA and if you have any opinions on what you prefer, what you think is missing or what I could improve please do let me know in the comments!

Thank you for stopping by,

    Sounds like you’ve been busy busy. I hope new digs are good! I like the new theme, very minimalist, bright and clear 🙂

      Phew, glad you like it! I was worried! The new digs are pretty much my new blog – minimalist and lots of white hahaha x

        What’s the theme called? I do like the different menus at the top that divide your blog posts (can’t seem to do this on my theme unfortunately).

          It’s the button one I think?? Thank you! I tried to do it on my last theme but it never worked 🙁
