To make up for my entry slacking, I’m posting my Instagram snaps from the past weeks. I don’t know how the year whizzed by so fast, it was as if I onlyΒ gave birth yesterdayΒ (January) and now it’s Christmas time yet again. Been out of the house almost everyday that when I get home at the end of the day, I just wanna plop to bed and cuddle with Selene. I don’t know how other bloggers work all day and still find time to churn out quality posts. How’d you guys do it? Do you even sleep!? What I’ve been doing right before falling asleep is tweaking my layout, which I’ve been compulsively changing up the past days. I don’t know, I sorta miss my colorful layout, but then I want photos to pop out so I decided to go black and white. Anyway, let me know what you guys think because I’m already at the point of saturation I don’t even wanna look at it anymore. So yes, I’d like to know – what’s your preference regarding blog layouts? Would it interest you more to read if it were colorful or just black and white? Or you don’t care at all? Your thoughts would be much appreciated, folks. PS – If you haven’t joined my Black Friday Giveaway yet, you still have a few days left to! Winner will win a surprise humble haul from me purchased last Black Friday via GCASH-AMEX!

    Your makeup stash is galore!

    Re your layout question, as for me, I like reading other people’s blogs that are simple-looking (the usual white background and dark font color) and have great content- photos + text- which are essential. Your current layout may be simple as well but it’s actually better, girl! Cliche as it sounds but simplicity is beauty! And since you’ve already established your blog pretty well, you won’t have to please people to go to your blog πŸ™‚

    I enjoy your island so much so thumbs up!!! πŸ™‚

      THANK YOU YANI! πŸ™‚ I appreciate your feedback a lot!! Glad you like it better than before. Really having second thoughts about it but oh well, I’m glad at least one person finds it better than before. And to me, that already puts my compulsive mind at ease. So thank you so much!

    Yeah. Time flies so fast :O
    About the layout, I prefer black and white for simplicity but sometimes, if the layout has good color combination, it makes me keep on reading the blog πŸ™‚

    Please check out my new post πŸ™‚

      Thanks for the input, Cielo! Much appreciated. May I ask what color combinations do you like seeing?

        Pastels such as pink, green, blue, or yellow– these colors make me feel like I’m in a dreamy garden. Kinda girly but I love it. Pastel colors make me come back to the blog over and over again. Hahaha πŸ™‚

    I’m excited to get my Ambient Palette! How is it? And as for the layout, I’m kinda partial to anything colorful, maybe black + white + something else as the accent? I dunno! Haha πŸ™‚

    • December 2, 2013 / 9:48 pm

      Kiiim! Thanks for the input! I haven’t played with the Ambient Lighting Palette yet cos I’m still waiting for my face to peel completely, hehe. Hope I like it though!!

    Hey Shari, aah you’ve accomplished SO much this year! I work from home and don’t have a baby yet, but I can’t really imagine what bloggers who have kids AND have to work full-time away from home do! I like your new layout as well. The photos do pop more this way!

    • December 4, 2013 / 12:33 am

      Aww thanks Sunny for those kind words :’) Really means a lot to me! I appreciate it!!
      Thanks for the feedback regarding the layout as well. I’m glad you like it!

    i immediately noticed the new layout when i visit today, i like it πŸ™‚ i guess for me the layout should depend on the bloggers personality and the content pictures. youre right about it making your pictures pop. most of your pictures have sophisticated lighting and feel to it so black and white color combination is very fitting, parang vogue magazine feel πŸ™‚

    • December 4, 2013 / 12:35 am

      Shayne!! Thanks for the feedback, ah – much appreciated! And wow, sophisticated lighting – thank you but that’s just the sun hihi! I’m glad you like it πŸ™‚ Saya ko lang! Akala ko mej wrong move ginawa kong monochrome eh. So thank you for the feedback talaga!

    I love the new Misty Mom logo! it looks so grown up!
    and yes, I love your new layout but with a pop of color, pink maybe? πŸ˜€

    • December 4, 2013 / 12:36 am

      Anne, thank you dear! Appreciate your feedback especially on the logo! πŸ™‚
      I’ll try to incorporate a pop of color, maybe when I get bored with this look na! will keep your suggestion in mind. Thanks for letting me know what you think!! :*

  8. December 3, 2013 / 10:21 am

    dude how am i not following you on instagram? πŸ™‚ what i mean is, all the pics are SO PRETTYYYY AHHH

    • December 4, 2013 / 12:37 am

      Whut! I wasnt following you either 😐 Thought I already was! And thank you for the photo compliment heehee, I try *BLUSH*

      • December 4, 2013 / 12:29 pm

        yay for us following each other lol. And of course – you deserve it! πŸ™‚

  9. December 3, 2013 / 10:50 am

    The layout’s dabomb! Lol. I like monochromatic looks. I don’t like layouts that overpower the blog posts. I don’t like distracting headers or cursors that has glitters following them (srsly?!) or background music (come on!). Well, bottom line, looooove the layout! Dami ko lang sinabi hahaha

    • December 4, 2013 / 12:42 am

      V!! Thanks for the feedback and your thoughts, I really really appreciate them! Go lang sa pet peeves, ako rin I don’t like super busy sites although I had a website 10 years ago na lahat yan meron except the bg music LOLZZ. hehe!

    I love the monochromatic look of your blog. It definitely makes the photos pop out drawing the attention of your readers to them easily. <3

    • December 4, 2013 / 12:42 am

      Thank you NIX!! :* I appreciate the feedback!

  11. December 3, 2013 / 1:13 pm

    There’s a lot of black and white in your photos too, so I guess I wouldn’t mind a color background at all!

    • December 4, 2013 / 12:44 am

      Thank you for the suggestion, I will keep it in mind!! πŸ™‚ Really appreciate the time you took to share your thoughts, so thanks love! :*

  12. December 3, 2013 / 3:11 pm

    I think you’re doing pretty good for a full-time mommy. πŸ™‚ I usually set my makeup out, and figure out which I need to review, then build looks on those products para 1 look + 1 review post, or even more review posts, since I try to use as many new things in one look as I can. πŸ˜€

    Anyway, as you know, I love your blog and I’m happy you find the time to update it instead of just snuggling up with Selene, which is understandably the more attractive and cozy option. <3

    • December 4, 2013 / 1:53 am

      AWWW CARINA ANO BEH YEN :’) :’) Thank you naman sobra for those too kind words, I don’t know what to say. Just so you know, your blog is one of my top favorites. I like that you’ve gone cruelty-free and I especially admire how you manage to balance your luxury buys and high street buys. Super love your Make Up History series (I feel an tiny bit more cultured after reading an entry!) and everything else. Don’t stop blogging evurrrr okay!

      And graaabe, I feel so dumb lang for not doing what you’ve been doing (1 look + x reviews). Efficient. As in lightbulb moment, okay. Ano ba yan, bat di ko naisip gawin yon 😐 Will try to do that moving forward!! Thanks for the tip!

    I am a big fan of white space so I’m pretty biased with your current layout. You can be freer with colors in the content this way, and it’s an advantage since you feature cosmetics. πŸ™‚ But if you’re really keen on adding a tinge of fun in the layout, you can always infuse color in little details like text links and stuff.

    • December 4, 2013 / 1:54 am

      Hi Danielle, thank you for the input! Really means a lot πŸ™‚ I will keep your suggestions in mind for when I decide to infuse a pop of color in the layout soon. Super thanks again!

  14. December 4, 2013 / 11:01 am

    I think black & white is nice! It’s classy and easy on the eyes and you’re right, it makes photos pop out more. πŸ™‚ I was going to do black & white too initially on my site but I’m not sure what happened, I kept adding colors and now it’s like super colorful pastels haha. I love your photos! Keep up the good work! πŸ˜€

    • December 8, 2013 / 4:40 pm

      Thank you so much, Jaa! I am a huge fan of your blog, so your comment means a whole lot! :* I love the look of your layout, I think you’ve got the black/white with a pop of color right on!
