a refreshing new direction

I've been brainstorming for a while now what changes I've wanted to make to Discovering Elegance and everything has finally (and slowly) come together. Starting with a layout overhaul, which for an indecisive girl like me took forever to finish, I finally feel like my blog is refreshed! A brighter colour to start off the Summer season, a different font and sidebar buttons to liven up the feel of the blog, and a brand new header image. I also have a weekly series in the works, as well as a little multimedia action. I'm in a great frame of mind to post more and take on new challenges! Can you tell I'm excited??


The other week I took a little trip to Crescent Beach in White Rock to shoot photos on the pier. It ended up being a beautiful day, rare for us Vancouverites right now with the rain and permanent cloud that we're dealing with. The wind was driving me crazy (did the weather not know how long I had spent curling my hair?) but my amazing photographer Andrew Cho is the master at capturing those 'in the moment' shots. A big thanks to him for shooting these pictures to launch my new website direction!
