LipstickRules: A New Look in the Works

Hey folks. Now that it’s spring, I felt it was time for a revamp of LipstickRules. I’ve been blogging for six years, and I feel like it’s time for another refresh. I wanted something clean and fresh and found this great template from 17th Avenue. Thanks to my blogging hero, Laura for the inspiration to change things up.
