Changes…

Just wanted to share some new features I got goin’ on the blog! ¬†If you’re an RSS reader like me, you never actually click on my actual blog, which means you’ll miss out on all my little widgets ūüôā ¬†No worries, they haven’t been all that exciting… ¬†Until now!

So I’ve debated back and forth for a while now as to whether or not I want to branch out into a more lifestyle blog, especially once I become a mom and my DIYs take a back seat to changing diapers and breast feeding for a bit. ¬†Oh wait, you DO wanna hear all about baby poop? ¬†Well in that case….

On the one hand I’ve learned SO SO much from parenting and pregnancy bloggers, and so part of me wants to share my experiences as a way of contributing to this incredibly resourceful community. ¬†But on the other hand, I also want to stay true to my original mission of writing about things for the home, which is something that I am truly passionate about.

So I came up with a compromise.

Instead of posting about non-house stuff, I have created a “lifestyle” corner of the blog (left hand side of the page). ¬†Here I’ll write about all things maternity, relationships, parenting… and other life related tidbits I learn along the way. ¬† ¬†These features will not come through your email (if you subscribe) or be posted to Facebook or Twitter, so it’s totally up to you if you feel like reading them. ¬†To see them, simply go to the blog url (www.housefullofpretty.com) and click away at your leisure! ¬†I may post some things to Pinterest, mostly because that’s how I found fabulous information… but that is still TBD.

This section will definitely grow, but one area that I’ve been working on behind the scenes is now live…. I call it Maternity Fashion. ¬†My non-Kim Kardashian fashion tips. ¬†It’s basically a lot of maternity friendly outfits and lame self portrait shots in the mirror. ¬†I was¬†obsessed¬†at looking at these from other bloggers, so decided to join in on the fun. ¬†You can see it here.

Also in this section is my Instagram feed. ¬†Follow me, and you’ll see lot’s of pictures of food, Tony doing manual labor, and Roxy dog in cute poses. ¬†Totally intriguing, eh? ¬†You can see more¬†here.

    I love this idea and the post is awesome!
    Random question – which Born heels are those? I’ve been looking for a pair similar and those look like exactly what I had in mind!

      I got them at Nordstrom Rack, so of course they are impossible to find now! I did a google image search and no luck… Let me see if there is an ID # or something on them when I get home and will let you know! Seriously the most comfortable high heels ever!
