I am pleased to announce the launch of Temptalia’s new layout, just in time for 2008. The web team has been working around-the-clock these past few days to get it up and running, so I want to extend a huge thanks to them for all of their hard work and effort! Feel free to leave feedback concerning the new layout, positive or negative, as well as if you happen to come across any bugs.  Happy new year!

New Features:

  • White background – easier to read
  • Organized categories – making finding things easier
  • Brands – now find the latest posts for your favorite brands
  • Most popular posts / featured posts
  • Better integration of content

As part of our launch of a new layout, we would also like to invite and encourage you to participate in a survey concerning your satisfaction with the site, what you’d like to see in the future, and overall, give us a clearer idea of what’s working, what isn’t, and what we should concentrate on.  Your participation helps improve the site for both yourself and other readers, so please think of filling it out – it’s only ten questions!

To take the survey… Continue reading →

This afternoon I received the most lovely surprise–a package from one of my very own readers. Tanya, a regular reader, and her son, Jacob, hand crafted me a cat-girl-doll (I’m gonna that is so utterly adorable. She has long eyelashes, pink lips, and even purple eyeshadow (is this not perfect for the blog?). There was also a handmade makeup bag in an olive green velvety fabric with a floral print inside. It feels absolutely luxe because of the outside fabric, and so durable because of the thickness and quality of the craft. I have already started using it, because well, I couldn’t resist, I adore it.  Tanya also included a bath bomb from LUSH in All That Jasmine, which I cannot wait to use (it’ll be my first LUSH bath!).

Because of her generosity, I cannot help but share photos of the special handmade gifts she sent my way and thank her publicly for her efforts and thoughtfulness. It was truly an unexpected gesture and gift, and I cannot begin to express my appreciation and thankfulness. I started tearing up as soon as I realized who it was from and why I had a package from her!  She reminded me of what makes the holidays such an amazing time of the year–it is a time when people spread love, good wishes, and maintain a spirit of holiday cheer.
