New layout!

So after a lot of thinking and a little bit less experimenting (and realizing to my horror that CSS tweaking is paid at WordPress. Tut, tut… This should be a sin!), I came up with this layout for Ribbons Undone. I wanted to put bunny silhouettes but then I came across these beautiful birdcages by Shery K Designs and the rest was simple :)

I posted my review (or rather my very unorganized thoughts) of Lisa Kleypas’ Hathaway series and I am already thinking of adding stuff. I’ll jot them down to my draft post of my thoughts on other historical romance novels. Nowadays I don’t have much time to read (because I started this awesome job!) and also I’m trying to read slowly because I end up forgetting what I want to write about a certain book. So hopefully, I’ll collect them somewhere with nothing missing, though it seems I will have to skim over some of the books, which I will be more than glad to do :)

I believe an introduction is in order

I can’t believe I’m writing this at work. *gasp* How naughty of me!

Hello and welcome to Ribbons Undone, my personal blog. Why? Because livejournal won’t do for me anymore. The Happii Journal shall remain as an archive of my previous posts. If I sound like an avid blogger, don’t get me wrong. I hardly ever post anything. But lately I found myself wanting a personal space for myself on the web to share my thoughts and things of interest to me. Like a book series review I’m gonna post soon. You can say that I set up this blog just to share that review perhaps but there are other things as well (and hopefully there will be in the future!)

I will post an introduction post on me as well later on but for now that seems to be all. One can assume from my lack of enthusiasm to prolong and deepen this introductory rambling and from my loss for words (I love Mac’s Dictionary app. It’s my new best friend. For real.) that I am merely making this post to check if the layout is to my liking. Oh, how I always have an ulterior motive for doing everything!

junipaurora as “she”

She’s a girl, rising from a shell
Running to spring
It is her time, it is her time
Watch her run with ribbons undone
