Reboot and Input


As you may have noticed The Sunday Girl has underwent a virtual face lift, out with the old and in with a shiny-new design (which also looks great on mobile devices if I do say so myself). A layout that is hopefully as pleasing on the eye as it is easy to use - I personally adore the new set up and hope you do too?

I've also finally dragged my butt kicking and screaming into 2016, with a weekly newsletter (I feel so pro-fesh now) which you can sign up to receive at the bottom of the site. I promise that said weekly delivery will not be of the spam-my kind, rather it will be a hand-picked selection of the best posts from the last seven days and general beauty news, straight to your mail box. The first instalment will be heading out this coming Sunday, fancy huh?

New additions aside, I am looking for input and not just in regards to the design - by all means, I am all ears if anything is difficult to navigate, if the newsletter is overbearing or for instance, if the font is too small/the site takes too long to load etc. Basically a heads up of anything that isn't as it should be; y'know the little niggly things that I as this blog's author may overlook - I'm sure you know how it is?

I also want to know what you want to read about? I'm very guilty of being self-indulgent (I guess blogging on the whole could some what be labelled as such) and don't always take into consideration what posts readers would like to see? I've been slacking on the review front and do have a lot of new products to share in the coming days but what else do you want to see? If ever you wanted to submit a post request the time is now - well, that isn't true I'd take on-board any suggestion at any time but you get where I am coming from. Hit me with it - I will be reading (and replying) to all comments tonight so let me at those suggestions.

P.S. I do apologise in advance, there will be six new posts today. This is to ensure my new photo slider works properly but to level things out, I promise to hold back on Sunday, and of course re-turn to a more normalised posting schedule come Monday.

Products and items that are featured on The Sunday Girl may have been sent for consideration of feature, or may be items that I have purchased myself. Regardless all opinions expressed on this site are of my own and honest. Any sponsored content will be clearly marked, you can read my full disclaimer here at any time.

  1. Six posts today? Wow! I say: bring it on :-)
    No requests for topics here, I typically read everything you post, although I'm way ouside the scope of your targeted audience (I think, 47 years old) and Dutch so half the products you write about are not easiliy available to me. But I like your style and the inspiration I get from your blog.
    Congratulations with the new design: it's lovely!

    1. Haha thank you :) I may have bitten off more than I can chew though ;)
      I may be wrong but I like to think my site is for everyone, age is just a number after all :)
      Thank you so much and I am going to try and include more international brands so keep an eye out :)

  3. Looks very good, and I am so glad that it is still readable. So many blogs have chosen the "pale grey font on a white background" which to me and anyone with old or less than perfect eyesight renders them total unreadable! This is clear and bright and looks great.

    1. Phew :) thank you so much, I'm really short sighted so I do try and keep that in mind when picking fonts etc! I really appreciate the input :)

  4. I want to say that I really enjoy your blog. I find your sense of humor and the way you speak about things to be both entertaining and relatable. The only thing I'd like to see more of (and you may not be comfortable doing this, which I totally understand) is you! As a reader, I feel connected with your voice, but I'm not sure I've ever seen your face. :)

    1. First of all thank you ever so much :) I really appreciate that! I fully understand and do want to put myself out there, it is just finding the confidence to do so which I realise may sound bizarre. My aim for 2016 is to care less and hopefully do Youtube etc. I promise it is on the agenda :)
