One Life & You WordPress Lifestyle Blog Design

WordPress Lifestyle Blog, a custom website design for lifestyle and fashion blogger.


One Life & You is a happiness, positivity and empowerment digital publication platform with content curation and content creation aiming at visitors who want to live their best life and be their best self. It is dedicated to help people to achieve their wildest dreams and to live life fully with a focus on an active holistic lifestyle.

The Challenge

This is a completely new website design, which is structured to Charlotte’s own PowerPoint layouts.  The website is to be clean and crisp, black and white.  A categorised blog is required along with an affiliate store, which includes a product layout with links back to the original product websites for visitors to buy online.  Instagram and other social media is essential as that will be pivotal to the success of this website.  A content managed site is required, giving Charlotte the ability to add her own blog posts and products for review.

The Solution

A brand new WordPress lifestyle blog design is born.  Black and white with shades of grey to compliment exactly as per the brief.  For the titles and main highlights I chose the Cinzel font from Google fonts: Cinzel is a typeface inspired in first century roman inscriptions, and based on classical proportions. However it’s not a simple revivalism, while it conveys all the ancient history of the latin alphabet it also merges a contemporary feel onto it.  It works so well for this website paired with Proxima Nova for the main body text.  The blog is categorised with main categories and sub-categories.  Tags also help the visitor to find their way.  The store is sortable by product categories, product themes and brands.  The whole website is very visual with images laid out in grid format with links to view more detail.  Hover effects over images make the visitor interaction more pleasurable. The regularly updated Instagram feed and newsletter sign-up form are visible on every page.

Tracey is an absolutely awesome website designer and developer. She did such an outstanding job on my site. I knew the user experience and look and feel I was after as well as the architecture of the website, but she was fabulous at reading into my vision and suggesting her own recommendations from her experience and expertise. I was totally new to WordPress and the technical jargon. She taught me lot of basic but incredibly things! And her WordPress user guide enabled me to get started very smoothly. Tracey was also was wonderfully organised to project manage within timelines and always revert to questions and feedback promptly, her turn around time is always exceptional.  Even post live phase she is extremely responsive, and always revert within 24 hours maximum. I am surely going to pursue the relationship through her monthly support service, and use her magic genius again should I ever wish to create another website … Not to mention that I will keep recommending her and spreading the word about how amazing she is.  I only launched my website a week ago and had so much outstanding positive feedback on the look and feel and design, whether from friends or highly trusted and successful business contacts. A one-of-a-kind five stars unicorn 🙂
