A New Look & An Introduction

If you've stopped by A Drop of This lately, you've probably noticed a new look. Over the past few months, I have been thinking about changing my online presence. I knew that I wanted a more streamlined, professional look for the blog. That's when I decided to stop looking around and put my creative mind to work and just try a few things. Several iterations later and I love the result! I hope you do, too. 

Here are a few highlights:
  • I added a Grab Button! I would love for you to snag one to add to your blog! A great place to put it might be on your "favorite blogs list" or "friends page". It's simple; just grab it on the right side bar to drop on your blog. Leave me a comment letting me know you posted it, I'd love to see it and check out your page. 
  • A new header with tabs! As you can see, I've added a few new tabs at the top.  I wanted to make my information more user-friendly, with tabs. First is the Contact Me Tab: I love mail! To make it easy for you to get in touch, just click on the tab. Second, is the All About Me Tab: I thought it was high time I introduce myself! Since I haven't done it before, I wanted to include it in this post, you can also find it in the tab up top.
  • Lastly, a new look and feel to the blog! I love the streamlined look in my signature color of pink. 
What do you think? I'd love to hear! Jump on over to my contact me tab and give me a shout!

Talk to you soon!


Hi, I'm Lea B. 

I'm so glad you found me. I started this little blog of mine in January 2013. I wanted share easy ways to use and do things that often appear very difficult or overwhelming. I am not sure who is learning more, you or me, but I'm glad we're doing it together! 

I know you're going to love the DIY beauty & body care recipes and essential oil information, like this and this. Not to mention book reviews and craft projects like here and here
