Me, myself & I

Hellokim New look!

hellokim_logo_launch

It’s emotionally that I officially launch today the new version of my blog Hellokim! I’d already talked about it some time ago (even months) by presenting the logo and announcing you the development of this new graphic. I have now a beautiful and new home and moreover there are two major new features that I detail now!

Picture first! The beautiful images have always been very important for me and my articles. I’m not a photographer but I try as much as possible to publish photos that I hope to be somewhat attractive. With this new version, photos are now 50% bigger in size! When the graphic was created, I started to prepare the pictures of the articles accordingly but as I have neither the time nor the patience, the photos of many archives remain the original format.

Hellokim speaks English I don’t claim in any way be bilingual but I try for some time to offer an English version of my articles. My English is, I admit somewhat rough but as 10% of the blog’s traffic comes from English speaking areas, I thought it was time to make a bilingual blog with a beautiful button to change the language. Some articles are not yet translated, some too old archives won’t be translated, but I’m making effort to publish my next articles also in English.

The new version is launched today but there are still some settings to do here and there so that the display is perfect. I hope it will be resolved very soon and in the meantime you could still enjoy this new version of my blog!

As a reminder, it’s my friend Cathy who create this graphic charter !

The blog has moved, update your subscriptions!

When I started the blog a few years ago, I did’nt want to invest too much money. I bought the domain name that you know hellokim.fr but I didn’t choose a formula with hosting. Among the free solutions, I chose to host my blog at Free’s in mistorybu.free.fr. I didn’t find how “hide” the address Free, so urls’ content and RSS remained all prefixed mistorybu.free.fr . With the move, I set up an automatic redirection that allows you, from any favorites you saved, to access the content on the new hosting. There is nothing to do, everything is automatic! For those who follow me via RSS, if you want to continue to follow me a small update must be done : replace https://mistorybu.free.fr/?feed=rss2 by https://www.hellokim.fr/?feed=rss2. For those interested, I will certainly do an article about the change of accommodation for WordPress blogs. Having some difficulties, I think it can be useful!

It was my birthday #1: Home design

A few weeks ago, I celebrated my birthday. On this occasion, I invited a few friends at home. For this event, I took care decoration and here are some pictures. The theme of the evening: pastel. Are you surprised?

* * *

In the foyer, my Man had the good idea to reuse the rope that I had installed for the Advent calendar in December and enroll in letters a little message for the occasion. Everything was hung with mini wooden clothespin between some mini Chinese lanterns.

Everywhere in the room, balloons were on the ceiling. Tip: without the use of helium, balloons can stick to the ceiling just with static electricity!

At the buffet, I had planned a cocktail dinner so I lined recycled glass jars with colorful straws and jams pots decorated with washi tape to have disposable cutlery.

To complete the decoration, I hung some lanterns and haloed balls. The main idea of the lanterns were to prepare a nice photobooth but I ordered a little more for the living room.

And speaking of photobooth, here is a picture of the settings that I set up for the evening. But I’m telling you a bit more in the next article.

After the evening, I managed to convince my man to enjoy the material to decorate the dining room part of our living room. Here is the final installation hung permanently.

For supplies: – The lamps, rosettes and other halos balls were purchased on the website www.souslelampion.com – Tablecloths, balloons, napkins, table runners were found at Hema‘s So did you like it?

And here are some pictures of the event until the photobooth photos!
