Breaking It Down: The New Site



The new site has some pretty cool features that I want to point out since they’re new + awesome. Hopefully this will save you some time from trying to figure out what’s different and what hasn’t changed. The recipe index (to be housed under “Categories”) is still in the works, so I’ll let you know when it’s up and running. It’s going to be great though…way better than the simple list of recipes on the old version!

Onto the good stuff. I’m planning to embed links into my graphics more (like they were in yesterday’s post). When you see the little plus sign in the black square associated with a product, that’s the link to that product’s webpage. Right here:


The “Shop My Favorites” tab is a place houses items that I’m currently coveting. You can shop by clicking on each product:

Commenting/sharing is a little more exciting now! This snazzy box lets you do everything..follow C&L on Bloglovin’ or by email, lets you share the post on social media, and lets you leave a comment. It also indicates in what categories the post is listed.


I’m sharing some of my fav daily reads under, you guessed it: “Daily Reads” (housed under the “Misc.” tab). I go through quite a few blogs on a regular basis, but this is a pretty good sampling without me going way overboard. Definitely check out these ladies if you’re looking for some more blogs to peruse!


Other minor things…the sidebar now has a place for you to shop my favorite stores and a scrolling feed of my Instagram. Exciting, right? Of course, let me know if you have any questions about any of these features or if you come across any glitches! Any other things you’d like to see? I’d love your feedback :)
