We've made some changes!
As you can see, the new template is done!

A HUGE THANKS to Temptation Designs for helping us out! She came highly recommended from some of our readers, and we were more than satisfied with what she did for us!

What's your opinion? Love it, hate it?



Edited to add:
P.S. Ruby Lou just likes the way her bodacious ta-tas appear in the pic, and I'm quite pleased with the mere perkiness of mine!

(So...is it just me or does anyone else think our boobies look extremely pointy in the header pic?)

I love it! I think the image fits the blog perfectly.

I like the new template, but (and I mean no offense) it lacks a certain oomph that the reviewers are known for. I think it's nice, but nice isn't exactly your overriding characteristic. :-)

I like the image and design but the masthead is HUUUGGGE. It takes up the entire page and there is no content shown above the fold. Other than that though, I think it looks great.

I'm still rattled by Ruby Lou's disembodied legs. She looks really happy though so it must be okay.

I like the new look. I am finding the yellow text of the "Top Scores", and "Been There" a little bit difficult to see. Maybe its just me. But those boobs...they could certainly put an eye out...HAHAHA!

I love the template!

The colors work really well together, and the header pic is great!

What's up with Ruby Lou's legs? And at least all your shoes are quite pointed, which balances out the pointy boobs. (You know the first thing I noticed were the boobs and Title...if that's what you want your first impression of your overall blog to be it's great!)

As for the template, my first impression of that was MAN! They sure changed things around here...and you know it doesn't look that bad considering the plain template you had before and all? So yes, very nicely done I must say, although the links on the sidebar are VERY hard to read...it could be the shade of them against your tan background but ya they are very hard to see.

But besides that it looks way cleaner, more sharp, and feminine. So if that's what you were looking for it looks great! Good Work~

My 17 year old son just came in and said the boobies looked juuuuuust fine. More than fine in fact, then I told him to leave. I love the new look. The colors are great, everything is easy to read and most of all the perky banner. All good.

I love it!

But yea, the yellow text in the sidebar is a bit hard to read. other than that, great.

Yellow text changed!

It was the "visited" link color, and I agree - it was a little hard to read.

Thanks for all the input!

loving the new template. sure the boobs are pointy, but it's still cute.

the colors are great. colorful without being bright and annoying. i have no issues with reading the sidebar content, but i'm coming to this a little late, so maybe it's been changed already.

my only criticism would be how that archives list is rolled up. the drop-down box is so web 1.0 while the rest of the site is so sleek and clean. there is a script that allows rolling up without the box. i use it on my site for my archives, it just makes everything flow better visually.

other than that, i love it.

Wow, great reviews everyone!

(I am temptation designs)

In my defense, I do not make the images, I buy them... the ta-tas are very pointy yes.. but the artist of the image can take full credit for that.

The header graphic can be easily shrunk down if that's something the ladies would like.

Ya'll shut up about my legs. Don't you know that disembodiment is the fashion trend of the moment! Shit. Get hip people.

But for realz... like um, can't you tell that I'm SITTING! What you aren't taking into consideration is what you can't see beneath the desk... sheesh.

I guess the header pic could be smaller... but that isn't my decision. I love the template:) But I'm biased.

Oh, one more thing... if I can't have bodacious ta-ta's in real life then you can better fucking believe I'll revel in the bodacious ta-tas of my cartoon version!

It is my first time here and I think the blog looks quite nice!

I like the picture and the design at the top opf the page, but I don't like the color combination. I like all three colors; I just don't like how they work together. But I definitely like the clean, smooth new look.

I'm no expert or anything, so you can take this with a grain of salt, but I think it's a bit much.
The masthead is giant and busy. I know it's a custom design, but I feel like I see this design style everywhere. It's like all the chicas with blogs have these wide eyed, uber-angular women up there.

The colors and everything are very nice, there's really nothing wrong about it. It just has the same feel as a million "custom" designs.h

I think that the reason that "all blogs seem to look alike" is because we all by our graphics from the same place (istock.com). They have literally thousands of "cartoon" graphics, and so its a high probability that they were mostly all designed by the same person.

I love the template, and I'm quite pleased with the color scheme!

And hell, it was SOOOO better than what we had before. Even I was getting sick of the PURPLE!
