Site Preview!

Hello my loves and Happy New Year to you all! I've decided to come up for a little air from the unpacking, organizing and decorating to say hello and share some fun stuff with you. Our little apartment is finally starting to feel like home and thanks to a few trips to Target, Marshalls and Bed, Bath and Beyond, finally looks a bit more cozy and put together than any of my college day apartments ever did. We've unpacked our new dishes, bathroom towels (love), television stand and living room carpet and although it's nothing too fancy I feel so proud to call this place ours. I can't wait to share photos with you soon; I'm just waiting on this gorgeous gem in the prettiest gray hue to hurry up and get here in the mail so I can snap some photos.

As promised, I also wanted to give you a little peak into my site that I've slowly been putting finishing touches on. I've been hard at work trying to define what I'd like my business, services and name to represent and it's a lot harder than I thought it would be. Writing a bio for both myself and my brand literally took me days but I think for now I like what I came up with. Here are some screen shots of the various website pages with a ginormous x and o to Beth Kaye for the fabulous photos from our editorial shoot; I'd love to hear your honest opinions, thoughts and constructive criticism on it all so I can make the site as user friendly, pretty and professional as possible. Again, a huge thank you to everyone for your sweet comments over the past few weeks on my few blog posts. You all inspire and motivate me in more ways than you will ever know. And to all the Chicago bloggers offering to meet up with me, I cannot wait to connect with you to set up a date :) As much as I adore having Apb sitting right next to me here, I am dying for some girlfriend time! Enjoy the first week back to work everyone, hugs to you all!

I mentioned the "You never know..." saying from your grandma today, hope you don't mind....it just really inspired me.

Happy New Year to you and Apb, hope it's the best year ever!! xxxx

so proud of you, Rhi. It looks, well, GORGEOUS. Hope settling in has gone well and the lake effect snow hasn't buried you under!

LouBoo said...

Rhi darling...I keep going back and looking again - the pages are just beautiful and so elegant. I always knew they would be - as I have said before you have an eye for detail. You must trust your instincts now and go with what feels right - even if that is the first iteration and you've gone through 15 others and they are not quite as 'perfect' as the first. Trust! I love it though - especially that hairdo page - so pretty. Pink is you. Love Lou xx

ASHLEY said...
