{NEW NEW NEW!}: Champagne at Shannon’s New 2k18 Update!

…annnnnd just like that, we are back with a brand new update!

My nose has been to the grind {& blue light glasses have been a MUST} over the past week to get this update up and running!

To be honest, I’ve been wanting to redo my site for a while. The other layout was fun but it wasn’t as user friendly or interactive as I would of liked it. There were also a ton of pesky bugs on the backend that made for some issues.

As I get more frequent content, I needed it to be user friendly and interactive… but still very me.

This layout as a whole is an ode to 1986 – my birthyear – with a kawaii touch. ๐Ÿ™‚ I knew I wanted to do a pastel theme and simplify up the logo a bit. I hope you like it!


Now let’s talk what’s new:

if we are being honest – I missed the sidebar! I know a lot of blogs are going a bit more minimal but I found it made mine slightly less user friendly and interactive. SO I added back the sidebar featuring a ton of rad stuff

For easier browsings in my recipes, I indexed everything in a grid layout – that way, you can ind what you are looking for right away vs scrolling through post after post. check out my Eat Me & Drink Meย recipes!

As a whole, categories are asier to navigate & there is a search bar both in the menu and sidebar so you can find whatever it is you want whenever you want.

For the most part, content here will stay the same & I’ll actually get MORE coming! I’m talking 7 days.

As far as an official blog schedule, here is what you can expect:

Monday :: Beauty (mostly holographic makeup & Japanese skin care)… except for today – ha!

Tuesday :: Style

Wednesday :: Recipe or #WCW

Thursday :: free for all! If I have a #WCW, this will be on Thursday

Friday :: the Weekly Champagne Edit


Sunday :: a fun new series… stay tuned ๐Ÿ˜‰

ALL RIGHT- that is all I got!

I hope you like it!! As always, if there is ever anything you want to see on the blog, just let me know.

As always, thanks for checking out my place in cyberspace. I am so beyond glad you are here and thank YOU for your support!!

See ya tomorrow,
