Hello, dear friends!
Yeah! You are right. It looks different around here.
I thought it was the right time to change the look of this site a little and make it look more fresh, bright, and colorful.
There are some features I really love about this new look. Let me tell you…
For instance, there’s a new header now. It is wider, brighter and it allows space to showcase some of my favorite pictures.
This site has three columns now. I’ve always loved three columns and wished to have them. So this is pretty much a dream come true for me. The columns provide easier orientation and more eye candies for you to enjoy.
There’s a slightly larger space for photos in the central column. It’s always better to have more space for pictures. You will now be able to see my recipes, tutorials and other madness in even more detail. Whee!
Oh, and the whole site should load much faster now. Thank you, Swiss technology.
I really hope you like what you see.

Ciao from Milan,Italy
Petra: Overall I love the new look of your site. Bright and sunny and creative and it is wonderful to see more of your great photography. I have to admit, though, that I find the three columns a little confusing. My eyes don’t know where to focus….perhaps it is just me, but wanted to give you the feedback. You obviously put a lot of care and work in to this new site. Congrats. D
Thanks for your feedback Dena. I will try to do something about that. I will try to make the pictures in the sidebars slightly smaller. Hope that will help. 🙂 Petra
Wonderful, keep it up thanks.
Thank you for your feedback, guys! 🙂 Petra
The site looks awesome! Wow, you did a GREAT job. I hope to see more food post from you, as I do miss them! Hope you are doing well 🙂
I love the new, light and fresh look – just in time for summer. Looking at the Home page feels like drinking chilled lemonade in the middle of a hot day! I love it. The pictures pop and demand my attention. And they got it! Not to mention, the header looks like the cover page from a Beach Living Catalogue. In other words, everything works together to create the most welcoming, balance atmosphere. Well done 🙂
As a side note (I am not technologically savvy, so I have no idea what I am talking about) – I do all my blogging on a tiny, 10-inch Toshiba notebook. The new three-column design is too wide to be properly displayed on a monitor of this size, and in order to see the right column, I need to use the scroll bar at the bottom of the page. Not a horrendously difficult or inconvenient, but I thought I’d let you know in case you didn’t test for this particular aspect of website design.
Hi Janka, I am glad you like it. As for width of the new layout, I will have to give that a proper thought. Thank you very much for letting me know. 🙂 Petra
I consulted the issue with my boyfriend and the only idea we came up with is Ctrl + Scroll Down. That reduces the size of the whole screen. Have you tried that? Would the text be still readable?
Delizioso il tuo nuovo look, ciao â™¥
I love the new layout!
