Welcome to the new Margo & Me! After six months, the time has finally arrived, and I wish I could be a fly on the wall to watch each and every one of you comb through the new site! Careful thought and a tremendous amount of consideration went into strategizing what we wanted to improve here on the blog. After all, your experience here should be an inspiring one and I wanted to enhance every darling detail that you already love about Margo & Me.

As you can imagine, after three years of blogging full time, there is a ton of content living on this site that falls into so many different categories. While my journey began as a personal style blog, I’m sure you’ve noticed that we’ve evolved so much over such a short period of time and now we cover so much more than just that fashion. It’s about inspiring your everyday lifestyle and sharing all of my favorite things – from fashion to beauty to travel and beyond!

When I first started brainstorming about the improvements I wanted to make back in March, I had two very clear directions that I wanted to take the site in: one was the actual design and the other was turning my site into more of a resource for each of you.

For example, some of the most commonly searched categories on my old site were weddings and Paris. While a variety of stories existed on my old site about these two topics, they weren’t easily searchable! Now, as you can see, I’ve created destinations for Paris and Aisle Style. In addition, the already existing Beauty Edit  is now further broken down into the subcategories of Hair, Makeup and Skin. I have a dedicated destination for Travel which is divided into Destinations and Hotels.  Lifestyle now features, Decorating and Entertaining tips. And now you can watch all of my YouTube Videos in one place! Now more than ever, it’s easier than ever to find inspiration for your wedding or even one that you might be attending! Maybe you have an upcoming trip to Italy, Aspen, Hawaii or Paris – Guess what?  Now there are travel guides for each of those!

Now, it’s easier than ever to search by category. It was my goal to move the site in a direction that felt more editorial, more resourceful and easier to navigate! What do you think? Have you poked around yet? I can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

Another element that I wanted to identify and distinguish was my branding. My old site was launched in 2014, and since then, my style has evolved such a tremendous amount and so, in turn, has my brand. When I traveled to Paris for the first time a few years back, I was inspired by so many things, perhaps most importantly, I was deeply moved by the architecture. So much so that from a creative standpoint, I wanted to incorporate these dainty and ornate elements into my site as the overall inspiration for the new branding, like the architecture of the buildings in Paris. Elements like font, color, and shape all serve as the framework for Margo & Me. The feeling you get when you arrive on my site should feel like you’re walking into the chicest Parisian apartment you’ve ever visited. Or at least that was my vision!

Not only have I improved the way you experience content by stopping by the website, but I’ve also customized exclusive content through my newsletters. To gain access, simply signup to by an MMInsider!

So what can you expect more of?

A lot of you have asked me what the most important thing about blogging is. As I set new goals for myself, I always write them down. That way, I really hold myself accountable. Consistency is key, and we have a routine here at the Margo & Me Headquarters: Three posts a week go up, newsletters go out, and YouTube hits every Thursday at 9am PSTI hope to get you in the routine of checking in with me for the things you love most! So don’t be afraid to tell me what you want to see more of! That’s my favorite part!

From the bottom of my heart, I can’t thank you enough for your continued support. Each comment, like, share, and email gives me that much more motivation to continue sharing and doing what I love most: creating beautiful, inspiring content to share with each and every one of you every single day.

I just found your blog through the shopstyle awards site. You embody everything that i have been looking for….I was growing board with other fashion bloggers and there you are taking a fashion blog to a WHOLE other level and I am in awe, inspired, excited…….perfection, you are truly perfection. The photos are romantic and transport you to another world which is what I love. Thank you! You now have a new loyal fan.

Tiffany, you just MADE my day. This is why I love doing what I do, so that you can enjoy the blog and be inspired. You are too sweet, thank you so much!

Jenny you are so so gorgeous! I love your look and you are definitely my role model <3 you're the reason why I became a blogger. lots of love from europe

Wow, that is so incredibly sweet. I’m so glad you enjoy it!

I absolutely adore the new site – it feels so luxe browsing around!!!

My only suggestion is that I would love to be able to search easier within “Travel”. For instance, you mentioned that you did a travel guide for Aspen so it would be super helpful if when I hovered over “Destinations” it could give me the different destination options because otherwise I don’t know what information might be in there that I might be missing out on. Like, if I were to be going somewhere and didn’t know whether or not you had a guide for the place, there wouldn’t be an easy way for me to determine that except to search through everything. Hope that makes sense! Keep up the amazing work!

Thank you so much, I’ll keep that in mind.

Love the new look and the photos in the post (especially just the look of bare wrists and feet! 🙂 My favorite category has always been the home decorating, in fact I think that is how I originally found your blog, possibly someone linked to you for holiday home decorating. But then I just fell in love with how gorgeously you design everything you create and show on this blog. Perfect attention to detail and always stunning photographs!

Dear Jenny,

I would say that looking through your new blog feels as though I am walking through a beautiful French palace. You are so creative and so chic. I absolutely admire everything about your blog and your style. I am so grateful to have such an amazing, beautiful, and inspiring role model to look up to. Thank you for sharing what the French call “la vie en rose” through your blog. The travel, the fashion, the chic lifestyle of a woman following her dreams. You allow people and women like myself to experience life vicariously though your photographs and beautifully written posts. I will always be so grateful for that.

Lots of love from Toronto!

I love this so much!!!! I just commented on your insta…lol…I’m sure I’m not the only person who says this but you make me feel like I’ve known you for so long. When I met you in person for the first time at Bloglovin, it felt like I was saying hello to an old friend…you have this magic about you and it really speaks to us through your content. That’s what makes you special…the ability to consistently be able to do that while making sure you are genuine every step of the way.

You are golden my dear!!!!

Wow, this new site is so pretty and feminine just like you on Instagram. I love it. I also like that everything is now searchable. That’s so helpful. Excited to see how you continue on. I sorta feel like you’re the modern day equivalent of Bridget Bardot, especially when you wear certain outfits that look like throwbacks. Love it all!

Love your writing style too 🙂 I started a blog as a creative outlet, and have really enjoyed the process: http://www.storyhilllane.com

Thank you for this incredible feedback!

You’ve completely outdone yourself and truly set the bar for bloggers websites!! I LOVEEE it. THANK YOU for focusing on the searchability and sortability aspects. The search function is key because I can’t tell you how many times I’ll see a post somewhere, and weeks/months later want to dig it up again for a specific purpose but can’t remember how far back in time it was, what the name of the post was, or how else to find it. Now with everything archived, I can plug in a specific term in the search bar and all relevant posts will come up. In the future, it may be worthwhile to expand the archive and search functions by incorporating a filter feature. E.g. if I’m looking for a particular YSL lipstick you linked to some point last month, I can filter my search for (1) Beauty Edit posts only and (2) posts last month, instead of having to search through every post you’ve mentioned YSL in, in any category.
