Welcome To The Anna Edit

What’s all this about then?

theannaedit-relaunch-august-2016-welcome-9

Well this feels a bit strange, but it’s time to finally introduce you to something I’ve been working on since the beginning of the year. Welcome to ‘The Anna Edit’! Same content, same ol’ me, but with a fancier website that’s hopefully not only easier on the eye, but also easier to browse, whether it be on desktop, tablet or mobile. My old blog design had been chugging away for around three years and it felt clunky and rusty – it was time for a change. So whilst I kicked it back old skool and drew up new designs with a pencil and a ruler on paper (my web designer loves me!), I got thinking about the possibility of a new name too.

‘Vivianna Does Makeup’ was a name that I dreamt up over six years ago, back in my second year of University. I wanted to dip my toe into the beauty blogging world but was horrified at the thought of anyone ever discovering my weird little corner of the internet. Hence the pseudonym of sorts ‘Vivi-Anna‘ – my real name ‘Anna’, with a more exotic sounding beginning. My undercover blogging lasted only three months before friends and family members cottoned on and to this day my Grandma is still convinced that I run an eBay account. ‘Thanks Grandma – the eBay business is going well!’ 

So – new name, same vibes. ‘The Anna Edit’ is my patch of internet where I plan to write about a bit of everything from beauty bits that have been tickling my pickle to the cookie recipe that I rustled up and ate them all within two days. My almost daily edit of all things beauty, style, fitness and life.  A quick note on that; I’m hoping that I’ll be able to put something new for you up here at 9am GMT on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. It’s going to be no different to the stuff that I’ve been putting out for the last year, just with a swishier layout and a few bells and whistles here and there. Look – three mini photos in a row – how cool is that!? Thanks Jay.

Design-aside there’s a few other new things around here. Instead of the million and one categories I did have, I’ve streamlined down to just four so it should be easier to browse depending what kind of content you’re in the mood for (re-categorising 2,000+ posts was so much fun, let me tell you). On the homepage you’ll also find a shop-able sliding bar of some of my favourite clothing, beauty and interior finds and my latest YouTube videos and Instagrams. If you want to see what’s been the most-read content of the last month then that’s in the ‘Popular‘ tab. On the ‘Shop‘ pages there’s also an option to shop my Instagrams too which I’ll update each time I post something new. See? A few more bells and whistles, but the bumf you find in my posts will always be here. 2,000+ ramble-filled posts later, eh?

I’m both ridiculously excited and kinda terrified in equal parts. It was a big move to wave goodbye to VDM, but I’ll always have a soft spot for it and after six years it was time for a change, a wee shake-up. I must say that I’m beyond chuffed with the new design too. I’ve listened to your feedback and hopefully you like it. Thank you so much for sticking with me over the years, it’s much appreciated. So ‘The Anna Edit’, a new chapter – let’s do this! There’s still life in this old dog yet.

    I love it! Congrats!

  • Congrats on the name change and blog layout! I love them both. The new blog layout is so much easier to use now.

  • The new design is utterly stunning Anna and i love the new name, it just suits you perfectly! I wonder how you plan to catergorize your videos now that you’ve retired Vivianna – Vivianna does Vlogging etc? Excited for this new chapter, your content has been really smashing lately, loving the new vibe!

  • NTS

    Yey! Love the new site!

  • I love it Anna, it looks so clean and beautiful <3

  • Congrats Anna! The new design is lovely. I have to admit when you said you were revamping your blog I was a little worried because a lot of my favorite bloggers have changed their layouts, and I found the new sites to be too minimal and professional that it took the heart and character out of their blog. But I love how your layout is very clean and streamlined but still embodies the vibe of a traditional blog. You and your web designer did a fantastic job! Maybe it was the old-school paper and pencil drawings that did the trick! 😉

  • Emma.F

    This is amazing! It’s such a huge step to rebrand, particularly when your blog is as well established as yours! The blog looks so chic and minimal, it’s brilliant, congrats!

  • Manon

    I love the new design! Happy to read though that your content will still largely be the same – I was kind of fearing an overhaul in that area when you first mentioned a rebrand. Keep up the good work!

    If it can make you feel any better about losing “VDM”, just know that this acronym is the French equivalent of FML.

    Congratulations !!!! the new website looks amazing. i love the new name as well! Well Don!

  • Well, I hope there’s still life in you and how much of it for real! I love it! I always wondered about the “Vivi-Anna” thing – thanks for clearing that up 🙂 And I love the new name. It feels so much more like “you”, even though I never met you in person (add spooky grin, ha). But I will miss the many versions of Viviannadoes…this and that. I will miss that you don’t post every day anymore but understandable. Let’s pop that champagne and chow down on some cookies!! xo

  • Congratulations! Love the logo and the new design!!!

  • The new site is gorg and I love the name as well! I second the sentiment that other commenters have mentioned – it would be so interesting to hear more about the process of designing your blog with a web designer. I love all the “behind the scenes” content related to being a blogger/vlogger.

    Hi,

    It looks so good! But because I am a bit of a stalker I noticed that while scrolling down for older posts in the categories it starts repeating posts at some point in the beauty category.

    So proud of you Anna, love the new design. It makes me wanna read everything 🙂 Great job!

  • LOVE the new design and name! For the longest time I thought your name was actually Vivianna haha! I think it was some time last year that I figured out Vivianna was a semi pseudonym. I had a rough time recategorizing 100 blog posts so I don’t even want to think about how stressful and time consuming it must have been to redo a blog with 2000 posts!

  • This website is what my blogging dreams are made of! So GORGEOUS! Very clean, crisp, minimalistic, and elegant. *insert heart-eyed emojis* Congratulations! One thing to note though is that the photos take a few seconds to load, which might be a problem for some who have slow internet. But overall, this is just so beautiful!

  • Le Miss B

    Congratulations! Love the new site!

  • Congrats! Aah reminds me of when 90s boy group immature changed their name to i’m mature! *wipestear* god bless em’ they grow up so fast ! 😄

  • This is such a beautifully polished, grown-up version – it’s beautiful! And very reflective of you. Your logo looks like it belongs on a skincare bottle!

    I originally stumbled onto your blog looking for makeup tutorials, but it soon became one of my favourites for all the other content. I love the new site and name, congratulations and good luck!

    It looks so simple and elegant, very natural and enjoyable to read!
    Little request: could you make a post/video about your organizational tips for back-to-school/beginning of the year/starting on the right foot etc? I love it when you release your inner Virgo 🙂
    Congrats on the new design!!

  • I love your new name and design! I’ve been following your blog for years, and although I don’t always get time to leave a comment it’s always one I’ll come back to. On a side note – aren’t grandmas funny? My nan calls my blog my ‘fancy work!’. She’s 85 and never goes on the internet. Ha ha. xxxx

  • This sounds so exciting I can’t wait to go and explore the new blog and I cant wait to see the content that goes up and everything! Love the new look anna

  • Ahh the new design and vibe is amazing, it definetly suits your content and style more and it is so much easier to navigate around! I thought you were just changing your blog design, not a complete re-jig, seriously love it though, you’re fab! Plus v hilarious that your Grandma thinks you run an eBay account haha

    I love it Anna, it just looks so much sleeker and totally you! I’ll admit, I’ll miss your old design (and the name, sob!) but I can understand the need for change. I think jujjing things up design wise/creatively every once in a while adds a real boost to your productivity and creativity on your blog. The same old design etc can make you feel like you’re stuck in a rut! Congrats!

  • Woah, I did not realise that Vivianna was made up! It is such a beautiful name, I’m not sure I can get over the fact you are not called Vivianna!
    Anyway the new design looks beautiful, your blog was the first I ever read and helped inspire me to start my own (sure you’ve heard that a million times) so it feels like the end of an era for me too but I must admit I am loving the direction your site has been going in. I’m all for more home and life posts!!
    Congrats Anna!

    Just can’t get over that I sincerely thought that your real name was Vivianna and you just went by Anna as a nickname 🙂 That is more on me than on you though, can totally understand why you wouldve named it that back when you started so long ago. Really love the new site and the site name change! Congrats!

  • Susana Gamez
