Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes + Giveaway (closed)

'Tis the season for change! Well, not really but I've been wanting to change lots of things. Things like my ridiculous sleeping cycle, my procrastination, my dangerously unhealthy addiction to Pepsi, and while I may not have changed any of those, I have changed my blog design, template, logo - the works you know.

What do you guys think of this one? I have a habit of changing my blog designs over and over again, but I think this is the one that I'll be sticking to for over a year at least. I'm loving the new header as well (as you might be able to deduce, I'm definitely a bit partial towards it haha) and will be getting it printed on blog business cards and everything.



Nayab Loves is maturing as I grow, and as my interests and who I am change, I want that to reflect on my blog as well. Press release deadlines and time constraints by PR companies really got to me these past few months, so you won't be seeing too much of that anymore.

I don't talk much about personal stuff on my blog, and with this new design and feel of the blog - I'm hoping to change that. Life style blogging is what interests me the most currently so that's where this blog is headed. Don't worry though, beauty and makeup is a huge part of who I am so you won't NOT be seeing that haha.

Enough with the rambling - here's a before and after of my blog. And to support my readers for sticking with me through long unexplained procrastination induced breaks - there's a giveaway below :)

Have a great day!

  3. Hi! My name is Maryam and I have been following your blog for over a year now. The best part about your blog is the make up part that's for sure. I love your quick make up videos and those gorgeous swatches 😍 next favorite part is the food blogging. I discovered quite a few places in Islamabad through you and I totally recommended them to other people. So these two parts I dont want to miss on your blog. Since you are going towards lifestyle blogging then I look forward to see some lifestyle hacks :) this new look of your blog is awesome. All the best xx
    P.S. I already follow you on fb and instagram.

  6. First of all..good luck for your blog changes :-) its a good change.
    As of about me..I'm an ex IT Project Manager and quite far away from beauty stuff :-P but now I'm a housewife and mother of a toddler girl so my interests have got changed over past few years. I'm more interested in lifestyle blogging and good to know you are heading more towards it. But I'm also a lipstickholic and all the stuff related to that so my eyes are more on that colorpop ultra matte lip ;-)

  11. Hi nayab. Love what you are doing, though i have been a silent reader of the blog, but i have been following ur posts from a while now, u rightly said that the blog is maturing. I feel that too, unlike other blogs nayabloves is truely relatable. Whenever i am reading your blog posts, i feel like i am talking to a friend. It takes loads of talent to do what ypu are doing. I being a full time new mommy, this blog is my fashion, makeup journal. One more thing i would love to see is posts about OOTD, and more about skincare. The swedish skincare post was really good
