7 Website Building Tips

Website Building
  Website building is a ton of work but also a lot of fun. These 7 tips will help you with your process!   Step 1: Map out your user flow before you start to build When you navigate a website most of us are not drawing a mental map of how we go from page to page or return to certain places. In fact, the better a website’s design, the less you would pay attention to any of that – it just works and feels seamless.But for all that you don't notice, someone (or a whole team) took a LOT of time making those connections easy for you and you should do the same for your users as well, to ensure a good experience.Some sites these days are creating a one-page website with the User Experience in mind because it is easier to navigate on just one page.

Azazie Solved my Bridesmaid Dilemma

Azazie Solved my Bridesmaid Dilemma

Wedding
  Choosing a bridesmaid dress was stressful. Being chosen to be the maid of honor was truly a special thing for me and I had a lot of pressure to get it right. Knowing that I would be in pictures and standing next to my beautiful Sister-In-Law, I wanted a flattering dress with great quality, and I was prepared to spend as much as this required. However, I’m not one for fancy dresses, ever. I usually wear pants and occasionally shorts or a skirt, or a simple dress. But this occasion meant I would need to break out the "keesh" and get formal with it, so I started my search for the perfect dress. I wanted something modest, yet tasteful and flattering. I thought it would be FUN to find one, uh, ~wrong~. Color Variations The largest consideration was color. Once a color is pic

We had to buy the right charcoal otherwise it would never get to temp, and if the wind was blowing too hard or if it was chilly out it would never get hot enough. We waited HOURS for our end results even in the best of weather/charcoal circumstances, so it could really only be done on a

At Home
  When my husband and I moved into a house that had a size-able bedroom, we finally got the opportunity to purchase a bigger bed. He’s a big guy at 6’2 and weighing in at a little over 2 bills, and we had been crammed into our Queen-sized bed since we were married and our previous bedroom was too small to fit anything else – it barely fit that bed, actually. We took some time and evaluated different options and picked a bed that was suuuuper comfortable, but also very high up. Then I ordered one of these mattress toppers (the kind you sink into like a cloud) and the whole experience was basically heaven. I have never stayed anywhere where I didn’t miss that bed and coming home to it is a literal dream - a good one! But nothing comes free – the price you pay for such comfort is a ve
