It’s Baby Sitting Time! Or Week, Whichever…

I wasn’t going to bother with an announcement post because I’ve left enough posts running along during my absence that you probably wouldn’t notice anyway… ha!

Though I guess my need to ramble and talk about absolutely nothing important at all got the best of me so here I am saying, tata my little blog space! Be good, listen to the scheduled timer and put things up on time and all’s well, alright?

I guess it does help that after shifting to WordPress there is a really handy and easy to use mobile app to help me keep track of whatever is going on on here, on my phone, so if somehow anything misbehaves I still am able to check in real quick.

I doubt anyone is interested to know, but yes hubs and I are spending a full week at home since our in-laws are away on vacation (something I totally need) and I would hardly call this ‘break’ of ours a vacation because we know how our little monster can be such a handful but it’s still nice, I guess to plan some activities that we would like to cover during this period of leave and home-boundness.

“who are you callin’ little monster!”

We’re thinking of some water activities, beach activities, indoor playground fun again seeing as she enjoys that and of course just regular ole family bonding.

We had a thought to do a staycation but that thought came really late so booking is near impossible (I’m sure vacancies are close to none) and it’ll be super costly booking at such short notice so, nevermind. We’ll be more organized about it the next time.

 

But alrighty, enough rambling, you get the point.

All should be good to be well, my fellow readers! You’ll still hear from me all week long, if you aren’t sick of me already and if anything you can catch more real time updates from me over at my instagram – that’s provided if I’m able to get a hold of my phone during the day!

A Blog Update – It’s An Icon Thing!

So… I recently discovered a little thing to this Theme that I am using here on WordPress. Based on the ‘Format’ that I select, which oddly enough doesn’t seem to have an effect on the actual format of the post, the little icons atop the entry will change!

Now it’s very frivolous and largely visual but I was thinking that it could serve as a good visual cue to segment my posts. That is if you are viewing my blog from the web because the mobile (and blog reader) versions are displayed without that icon.

For the most of you who are popping by my site from mobile, blog readers or those who never took much notice to the post ‘headers’, here’s what I am talking about!

So frankly… I don’t have any idea why I am discussing this revelation on here because I don’t intend to start tagging every single post in detail (less I forget which one belongs to what myself) but it is a nice option and thought to be able to.

For now, I have only dedicated one other symbol to another purpose that being the ‘speaker’ for Giveaways and Promotions.

In a way, even though I know it’s a volume icon, it looks like some loud hailer of sorts so… I guess that works? Plus it stands out being grey, amidst the usual black headers.

Incase you’re wondering, the one right at the top (darkest black) is the usual design for ‘standard’ posts, which is almost all my posts.

 

Though these little things are inspiring me a little to start posting more random snippets. Would you all like quick sneaky shots, like previews maybe, of upcoming posts before I actually post about it with fullout information, rambles and all?

For example if I were talking about a palette, I would spam palette pictures and swatches first and then tag that to the Camera icon under a ‘Sneak Peak’ sort of title? And then a proper Review post to come where I discuss the palette, textures and all?

I guess that’s most ideal for those who are here for the images more than my rambles.

I don’t know what to do with these yet but… I guess it’s nice having that little toggling option and I’m loving this theme a little more (than I already am) now. If anyone has any cool suggestions, feel free to let me know! :)
