The Budget Babe | Affordable Fashion & Style Blog

Drumroll Please...

It is my great honor and privilege to present to you the new and (hopefully) vastly improved Budget Babe blog design! Considering my limited technical skills, I'd say I did a pretty damn good job, LOL. Let me tell you, it wasn't easy. Many thanks to my amazing bf who handled the backend updates and kept me calm during the launch. Ok, and during the entire redesign process.

My goal was to present the content in a way that's easier to read, and to organize the layout so that the site is easier to navigate and find things at a glance. I also wanted to spice it up a bit, make it more visually interesting and just more fun overall! I hope I've accomplished these goals, and I'll be tweaking little things here and there in the coming weeks to make it even prettier.

Of course, your feedback is greatly appreciated! Let me know what you think, and feel free to ask questions. Thanks for your support!

i'm loving this new layout! you did a great job-everything is neatly organized. and that banner-loving the colors!

The site looks beautiful. I stumbled upon your blog less than a month ago and i'm totally hooked. I'm always trying to stretch my money as far as possible in this economy while staying stylish. Thanks for also inorporating stores that plus size girls can shop at too!

Great job! I swear I enjoy reading your blog so much that sometimes I actually miss my own blogging days. I used to hand code my layouts as well so I know how crazy redesigning can get ^.^
