First things first: I’m changing the name of this blog! There are still a few technical things I need to work out, but today I want to welcome you to ‘Style by Joanne.’ I’ve been contemplating this change for awhile now – to move away from using just my name as my blog name. I want to distinguish between the two (myself + my blog), because they are very different things (after all, I get up to a lot more then what I post on here!). I hope you like the change – let me know what you think in the comments section.. 🙂
I hope you enjoy the links I’ve picked this week. I’m off to enjoy some of the GORGEOUS sun that we’re getting this weekend in Auckland – because it’s about time we had some decent weather !
