The all new Women’s Room

A while ago we decided it was time to up our game and get ourselves a new look. We noticed many of the blogs we read every day were getting slicker and easier to read, and interestingly many websites were starting to look like blogs. Fast forward a few months and here we are, with an ‘all new’ Women’s Room, which hopefully you are going to love.

Our aim was to change the look and feel to create something more in line with the way the blog has grown and developed over the last three years. We wanted to simplify some things and expand on others, without moving away from what we think is important to our readers.

So, we have increased the ‘We are reading’ category to include more books, as lots of you told us you love this and use it a lot. We have devoted a whole new area to ‘Things We Love’ in order to highlight the newest and most interesting fashion, beauty and homeware, which we think are worth buying. And we have tried to divide up the categories into what we hope are relevant, easy to navigate sections. Most importantly we have kept the essence of The Womens Room exactly the same – a new and interesting post every day.

Getting it right has been a real learning curve and big thanks to our web designer Joe Smalley for dealing with two very stroppy, middle aged old bags, who kept changing their minds! We think it looks really rather lovely and hope you do to.

    Dear Amanda & Jane

    Will continue to read your blog every day – thanks for writing it :-) I use a lot of your little tips and ideas every time I go to London – in January we dined at Bocca di Lupo after you recommended both their icecream shop, Gelupo, and the restaurant. Wonderful food.

    It’s brilliant, like a glossy online magazine,
    I’ll look forward to opening it up every morning with my coffee. Congratulations! x

  • Love the new design, but can’t seem to change the subscription in my google reader, for some reason it only finds your old typepad blog, not sure if there’s anything you can do to wake google up to the fact you have a new blog name, of maybe I’m being impatient and should give it a few hours. Anyway thought you should be aware of the problem.
