If you’ve been with me since the very start you may have noticed the mini facelift Boundless has gotten. No? Clear your cache and reload the page. Much better, right?
Why the change?
I collaborated with a former fellow intern for the original design of my blog at the end of my junior year (summer of 2012). I chose the color palette I did because I thought that the readers I wanted to attract would align more with that than with a more self-reflective design. The original feedback: “that’s so depressing. You should go with something more cheerful.” End result: a chick who has always said “I hate pink” with a blog in a pink shade. Go figure. I’ve spent hours teaching myself bits of CSS coding to get my blog exactly where it is now, and it is the fullest extension of me that I can get it to…without paying for the services of an actual graphic designer ;) NOTE: some readers may not be able to see certain fonts, namely Rock Salt and Kilogram. These will appear as Times New Roman for you.
So who am I?
After redesigning Boundless I’d like to reintroduce myself. I’m Julia, a type-A, strong-minded, foul-mouthed 22-year-old residing in Manhattan. I love leather, studs and everything punk-chic (think Balmain circa Spring 2011). Though I love transforming myself through clothes and makeup, I take a very natural/holistic approach to my diet and certain aspects of my beauty regimen. You most likely will find me rocking skinny jeans, combat boots, and rockstar hair—which, btw, is my bedhead—on my days off. In my free time I love people watching, attending art museums, and meandering around this marvelous city.
From this point forward: I’d like all of you to not be so afraid of me—I don’t bite, honest! Ask me questions, strike up a conversation with me, tell me if you hate something I post or compliment something you like that I’m doing.
I hope to hear from you all soon! In the meantime check out the blog’s new digs
