Ziba & Cat In The Suitcase

I’m A Hustler, Baby!

April 28, 2013

Happy Sunday, my readers!

As I already mentioned, I’m going on a roadtrip to Amsterdam this week. And I’m really excited about this. But not for any reasons that you might suspect! ūüėČ

I haven’t mentioned this, but… there’s something really cool happening this week in Amsterdam.

On Tuesday, the Dutch are celebrating Queen’s Day!

Yeah, I didn’t know they had a Queen either. But it’s not just any ordinary Queen’s Day. They’re actually getting a new King! This is going to be a festive event of epic proportions. Think of it as their equivalent to Mardi Gras. So as you can imagine, it’s going to be crayzay.

But… that’s not why I’m excited to go. Actually, I’m excited for this day because it is also going to be¬†Free Market Day! It’s an occasion where everyone is free to trade and sell their goods. And I thought this day would be a fun occasion to bring a suitcase full of goods from my shop!

Somehow, the thought of hustling in the streets of Amsterdam is the most delightful aspect of my trip.

But hey, it’s all just for fun. Even if I end up selling jack squat, it doesn’t matter.

What matters is having a blast and meeting lots of fun, cool people!

By the way, I love how right now Ziba’s entire inventory fits in one little tiny white suitcase…

A Bright New Beginning

January 15, 2013

Ziba Blog Gets A Makeover

Today is a day for bright new beginnings!!!!!

This is the day I made my first post of the new year, the day the new Ziba design is unveiled AND the day I find out that I am a proud new aunt!! I will gush more about my wonderful newborn nephew later!!!!!

So, in case you can’t tell from all the exclamation marks!!!! I am in a very festive mood right now!!!!!!

I just wanted to give my readers a heads up on what’s new here at Ziba:

  • 1) The address for the blog is now ziba-blog.com¬†and the address for the shop is ziba-shop.com.¬†Bookmark it!


  • 2) Do you see the “subscribe” section on the sidebar to the right? Enter your email address in order to be updated by email whenever a new Ziba blog post is up.¬†If you were subscribed by email before, you will have to re-subscribe. Sorry that I couldn’t figure out a way around this:/


  • 3) A New And More Colorful Ziba!¬†I made this new design that you see now on photoshop, and I had a very talented web developer put it into coding.

The most important person I had in mind when I created this design was you, the reader! I wanted text that would be easy to read and information that would be easy to find.

But also, this new colorful design is a reflection of the ways in which this blog and I have evolved together. For me, this blog has become a bold outlet of creativity and self-expression.

Yes, I still want to get geeky about health and beauty. I want this blog to be filled with information that’s both enlightening and entertaining.

But in the end, blogging is really just about having fun! And I hope this new design shows that.

So now, over to you my dear readers…

What do you like about the new design and what about it would you change?
