I would like to introduce the new design for Love and Mimosas!
In May of 2015, after a year of blogging on a standard WordPress.com platform, I made the smart decision to migrate to a self-hosted site. During that transition, I discovered Pipdig, the lovely maker of the design I have recently fell in love with. To express my new found admiration for this design, I thought that I would write up a fancy little review for you!
Who is Pipdig?
Pipdig is an internet based resource for professional, pre-made & custom Blogger & WordPress website designs. If I had to choose only one reason why I decided to purchase a Pipdig design, it would be the simplicity of the integration process to install the design on my site. When I started blogging two years ago, I had absolutely no clue how to create a functioning website or to even manage it for that matter. For the templates, Pipdig has clear instructions on their site as to how to upload the template, along with how to customize of the header, widgets, post style, color options, the menu(s), and more.
Love and Mimosas & Pipdig
Now to talk about my history with Pipdig… The first design from Pipdig I purchased was ‘Style & Light‘:
This was a great starting point to the design of my site, and I highly recommend this template for bloggers who are just starting out.
I had the ‘Style & Light’ design for a year, and unfortunately, I ran into a few discrepancies in the beginning. One of the plugins that is required for the template crashed my site at least 3 times within a few months. With that being said, Pipdig has always provided me with fantastic customer service and was able to fix the issue right away. I was even reimbursed for the inconvenience. It is rare to find a company to take care of their clients like that, which enticed my return for an upgraded design.
The New Design
The new design is the ‘Aquae‘ template. Minimalistic & Chic… Exactly what I was looking for! I adore the collage display as it keeps the homepage clean and simple, and it allows you to move the widgets to the bottom of the page. This design makes my site look more like a real professional website, rather than just a blog. If you would like to see more, head on over to the homepage and click around to take a further look into the design. Be sure to let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

Also note that this review was not requested by Pipdig and I am not receiving any type of reward to writing it. This review is solely based on my honest opinion about the amazing product and customer service they offer!
