It is with great pleasure and excitement that today I launch my new look blog designed by the beautiful Louise from ‘The Design Villa’ & my new logo drawn by the ever so talented Rachel Urquhart.

The last month I have taken a break from blogging to spend time with family as my mum got very sick. It was a very tough time as things got worse and sadly my mum passed away at the end of March. My mum was a true inspiration to all she knew and in an upcoming post I wish to share her story with you all. I dedicate my blog to my mum and she will always live within me and guide me through the years ahead.

Through this time it really made me start to reevaluate life and what it is I wish to get out of it. In order to make my dreams come true I needed to start doing things for myself and really just reaching above and beyond the stars. I would like to thank dearest Louise for designing something perfect beyond words, truly me and showing such patience in creating my layout. Thank you to the ever so inspiring and incredible illustrator Raych for creating a logo that represents everything my blog & I are about and  more. Thank you to all you guys who remind me every day why I love doing this and how much you all inspire me! 

So my journey starts here, beginning with my new look blog…

To bigger and better things,
To new beginnings….

Love Leana xx
