New site, new logo, all systems are go

You might have noticed that my site has moved and I have a flash new logo. So what’s up with all that? I wanted to take my blog to new heights and I felt I couldn’t do that on the platform IĀ  was on so I moved to wordpress with the amazing help from the fabulously wonderful Vicky from Digital Discussions (note do not do this yourself get a professional to do it. It’s scary enough swapping your blog let along doing it yourself!). I love, love LOVE the whole new look of my blog so magazine like so stylish. Thanks Vicky you rock! I hope you guys find it as easy to use as I do plus how sexy it looks (oh yes very shallow I wanted my blog to look great so I moved so here I am!).nz_homestead_logoI also have an amazing fabulous super wonderful cute and fancy new logo that Fiona Kertesz from Fiona Ketersz Pet Portraits made for me (my super talented amazingly sexy best friend who is also a graphics designer plus incredible artist so if you want any design work done or an amazing portrait of your lovely pet get in touch). I just love, love LOVE my new logo. Thanks Fiona I LOVE it.

Plus check out this super fantastic business card Fiona made me. Wow I’m so flash!!

nz_eco_livingSo what does all this mean for me? Well I have a great new platform that I host so it’s mine, all mine!! I get a great looking blog that’s easy to use for blogger and reader a like. I’m having fun writing my own code and changing things as I see fit since it’s mine! Did I mention it’s all mine!! I can do with it as I like! So what do you think of the whole new look? Do you like it? Aren’t Vicky and Fiona super clever to help me create my amazing new site and logo? I do so love it.

So what will 2014 hold for NZ Ecochick? I plan to do lots of blogging, I have lots of great ecoliving tips, tutorials and general great information for you all. I have heaps of amazing giveaways for you. I may even open a store and do workshops (what do you think? interested?)? I will be doing some more guest speaking this year so if you’re interested in getting on board and being a sponsor or hiring me to guest speak for you please get in touch.

Let’s make 2014 a year to reduce our waste and plastic, live more green, save some money and most importantly love more and have LOTS of FUN!!!! love you guys xxx

    Love the new look! Thank you so much for all of the work that you put into this site, I’m so glad I’ve found it. Countdown has the yoghurt makers for around $13 at the moment so my next plan is to make my own yoghurt (following your guidelines) šŸ™‚

      Aww thank you so much for your wonderfully kind words. This is the whole reason why I write and I’m so glad you love it. Good luck making your yoghurt and thanks for the heads up that it’s on sale. Enjoy Mx

    Beautiful website and here’s an idea of mine.

    Love your logo. Love your posts and find it relaxing to look through them as well as interesting and educational. Look forward to any classes/courses you may be giving.

    You are ramping up and charging up this whole arena of ecoliving. Good on you!

    As an Ecochick type idea I am considering going for three months without buying any clothing. Was thinking. I have enough and if I want something newish, I can remodel what I have or if I want something completely new I can make something from the stacks of fabric have. Wondered if anyone would like to join me in this. Was thinking of the possibility of using a portion of the money saved as a donation to the Black Sheep Animal Sanctuary in Otaki. But my idea is not set in concrete yet. Any one have any comments?

      Aww thanks for all your support Pam. That sounds like an amazing idea. I so want to do something like that too. Actually there is a great idea out there called Project 333 ( you might be keen to check out what they are doing. It’s choosing 33 items and only wearing those items for 3 months. What a challenge. I really need to go through my wardrobe and get rid of all the clothes I haven’t worm for a year or longer. We hold onto these for far too long!!! Once Gabriel’s room is done I’ll start on de-cluttering the rest of the house. I do so love a good de-clutter. Good luck and let me know how you get on Mx

        Wow! What a great link. I am really jazzed now. I went straight to the project 333 link you gave me and really got inspired. —simple, sensible, easy sounding and fun. I am starting tonight, now that my son is in bed! Thank you so much! I can’t wait until I am dong the 33 items of clothing for three months thing. It will save money and time and I will feel great!

        1. February 2, 2014 at 10:30 pm

          Fantastic good for you! You’ll enjoy it. Please let me know how you go. Once I’m a bit more sorted I want to do this too. Have fun Mx

    HI Madeleine,
    Just getting back to you about my progress with the 333 project. Love it. Down to 33 items of clothing including shoes. Wow. My wardrobe looks so tidy and it is fun to get dressed and choose an outfit. This living with less is really MORE! –More fun, more spacious and more freeing. I could go on but won’t. for now.

    1. February 25, 2014 at 9:38 pm

      Wow go you. I can’t wait to get rid of too much stuff I have in my life!! Mx
