No, you didn't click on the wrong link; this is A Pretty Face. Actually, I changed the blog name too for all of three hours when I decided that the name didn't work. I can't even remember what I was thinking when I named this blog (I did try to explain it once but that isn't intelligible even to me). But then I realised that life doesn't work like that. You can't go back and pretend the mistakes you've made and you especially can't alter them now if you don't know what to change them too.

If I come up with an idea, maybe I'll change the blog's name to XXX, formerly A Pretty Face. But that's a bit of a mouthful.

For now, this is the blog re-design I mentioned, what, a month ago? Just before life decided to get in the way. The new design is actually a million miles far removed from what it was going to be, and I have a feeling it will undergo a few more tweaks, possibly drastic tweaks.

Can a tweak, by the very nature of the definition, be drastic? I think it demonstrates best what I am doing, though; I am not altering the content or substance of this blog. I'm just re-doing the make up, re-painting the face. Re-prettifying it.

Note: let me know if the colours hurt your eyes, or the font is too big/small for you to read etc etc. We never want to let style get in the way of functionality, do we?

Edit: Sabine at Psynopsis perspicaciously noticed that I'd changed my posting name too - which I clean forgot to mention here. I was starting to feel a bit too big-headed signing myself as 'pretty face'


  1. I think is quite interesting.
    Very nice.


  2. I think it looks gorgeous. And I love the new name. Don't change a thing!!

  3. Belette, you reminded me of this photo when you commented saying it was your favourite when I posted it! So thanks to you xx

  4. Beautiful layout (and no, nothing hurts the eye)! The new name is good, but I I like 'Pretty Face' too. xoxo
