Born to Buy Makeover & Blog Update

If you've been following Born to Buy for a while now you'll be able to tell that Born to Buy has had a makeover! My very talented friend worked her magic yet again, giving it a face lift. Once again, I'm so happy with the results and can't thank her enough! Hannah, you're incredible!

To go with the blog make over, I've also bought my domain name! This doesn't effect my readers at all, I'm just really excited! 

With the blog having a make over, I've decided the content needs one too! If you follow me on TwitterFacebook or Instagram you'll know that I like to be very organised with my posts and have them written somewhat in advance, scheduling them to upload as I see fit. Given that I like order and structure, I wanted to give myself a bit of an upload schedule. For the foreseeable future, posts will be uploaded in a row (one a day), with me taking a days break before starting once again. This may seem like a lot of posts but there's so much I want to share with you all and it seems like the most efficient way of getting it done.

In the last few months of 2012 you may have noticed that I didn't upload as many reviews as I used to. This wasn't a conscious decision, I just had other posts I wanted to upload. Given that I am so behind in my product reviews, you can expect a lot more of them! I'm trying to upload at least one a week.

I've had the 'Upcoming Posts'  Page here on Born to Buy for a while now and, if you've checked it out, you'll know I don't update it as regularly as I should. Now that I actually know what's coming on the blog, however, I'll definitely keep it updated! 

Did you know you can also request posts/reviews/anything else on that Page also? I really love your requests so please keep 'em coming.

Finally, I've started a new series; My Make Up Collection. There will be one post a week until I've shared my whole make up collection with y'all. It's actually a lot of fun writing this series. As I photograph and swatch products I'm rediscovering old favourites etc. So far I've uploaded two collection posts, Face Primers & Foundation and Concealer. Check 'em out, I dare you!

Now that you've been updated, what do you think? Do you like the makeover? What posts would you like to see? 

Always look your best,

  1. I can't wait to see your eye shadow collection!

    1. Hahaha, Natasha! I'm splitting it up into loose shadows and pigments, individual shadows and palettes (including duos and quads etc). I just feel like it might be too long otherwise. What do you think? x

  2. This is lovely, and congrats on buying your domain name!

  3. I like the new look, who did you use to buy your domain name? ive been looking into it for a while now but not sure who to trust

    1. Thanks so much, Sarah! I really like it too. It feels a lot ..cleaner? I can't think of another word to describe it!
      I actually went through Blogger. If you got into settings and see your blog url, you should see and option to buy it. I can't exactly remember where but I'd be happy to be of more assistance if needed. I'll tweet you. x

    2. Your a doll, thanks! I have seen that one before so I might just take the plunge and go for it! Especially if it redirects no problems at all xx

    3. It probably took about half an hour to work but they say to allow about 24 hours. Goodluck xx

  4. Congrats! You are a fabulous and dedicated blogger! xo

    1. Thank you so much! I'm so glad to have made these changes. x
