New Look!


So! You might notice that things look ... a little different around here. That's because I kind of lost my mind last night and decided to redesign the whole 'look and feel' of Angloyankophile.

I'm kidding.

It's something I've been thinking about for a while now (like, a year). I just wanted something that looked a little more ... grown-up. A little cleaner, a little slicker, but still me.

So, with a little help and encouragement from two of my favorite blogging buddies, Angela and Rebecca, I set off to design a new logo (which I hope you like!) and to find a shiny new template (which I love!). Now you can pin images directly to Pinterest, see my most popular posts in the sidebar, and follow along with me on Instagram.

I felt so nervous installing it last night - mostly because I was worried that you wouldn't like it but also because, well, change is scary.

But I think it's time. For change, that is. And I hope that you'll keep reading; that you'll keep leaving the lovely comments that you leave. They make my day.

It's been five years since I started this blog and I'm so grateful that you've stayed with me for the ride!

  1. I loves it - very chic! It might even convince my brain how to spell your blog name... maybe ;)

  2. Looks great! And it really goes with your content style. I've been meaning to change my blog brand for ages, I got as far as changing the template but still haven't done the logo. This has definitely motivated me to get a move on! :)

    1. Thank you for your lovely, thoughtful comment, Laura! I was very nervous that changing the layout wouldn't look like "me" anymore, or that it'd look like every other blog, so I really appreciate your reassurance! It is tricky to find/design a new logo. There's Tailor Brands, which I know a lot of people like and use (I tried it too) and there are a lot of options on Etsy too, if you haven't had a browse at those already! :)

  11. Love it, is the yanko part in smaller letters indicative of a change of heart or mindset?! Either way, it looks very chic and the new look suits you well :)

    1. Yay, thank you, Shikha! Haha, not at all - if anything, it's to bring out that aspect of the blog more and draw attention to the quirky American side!
