Fan Month + New Design

As previously mentioned, I am off to do my fan month today! I probably will not be blogging for the next week, but I will be reading yalls blogs! When I come back, I'll do a big catch up post. Meanwhile, you can keep up with what I'm reading by following my Pinterest Board.

Are there any blogs you suggest I should be reading? 

As you probably noticed, I have re designed everything around here. I need yall to give me some feedback. Please be harsh and honest! I've also updated my pages. 

To simple? Not enough pictures? Hard to read? Boring? What would you change if it was your blog? 
_______________________________________________________________________________________
Opal wishes you a happy week, and looks forward to seeing yall around the blogosphere.

  3. Have fun being a fan! I'd recommend looking up The Quiet People; I've enjoyed what I've seen over there so far. :) Also, I love the new heading and I like that your fish is named Fish. Everything looks great! :) See you when you get back!

  5. Congratulations!! It's a beautiful design. I'd only suggest increasing the font size and maybe a splash more of colour -- it's a bit bland right now with only white and green. (But I love the green!) And the gadget title font for the sidebar is a little not eye-catching enough, I'd say. But otherwise it's lovely! Enjoy Fan Week :D

    1. Hmmm okay. I was trying to minimise lots and lots of colors, but I can see where you are coming from. Also, a bigger font size is probably a good idea xD

      Thank you :D

  6. I love the new design! It's fresh and simple (and my favorite color :) ). Also, everything is super easy to find. One suggestion I'd make, though, is joining Bloglovin' and adding a button to your sidebar so non-Blogger people can follow you (I get super annoyed with awesome Wordpress blogs that don't have this option). See you next week!

    1. Yay! Bloglovin' is a great idea. I've added it to the bottom :)

  7. I like how green orientated everything is! Very cool, very refreshing. And it is anything BUT boring.
    I suggest you take a peek at The Teen Aspect by a blogger of the same name. It really is great and I look at it all the time!

  8. I love the design! Is green your favorite color? I really like the color scheme, like how it is kind of a gold and then the green. It's really nice. Your theme is very clean and easy to read. I like that. Some blog just clutter up there themes, and when you try to do anything on their blog.
    Great job! I love it! :D

    1. No, it's third to Purple and Black xD But I've always used green and don't really want to change, and Heather @ Sometimes I'm a Story uses purple, so I felt like that would be to similar.

      Thanks :) That was the aim!

  9. The new design is great! Looks much cleaner, professional.;) I have probably changed the backdrop for my blog about four times - I've had a hard time deciding on one. But I think white is definitely the way to go. Everything looks better.
    That said, if it were my blog I'd try to get the circular logo on the left and then have the title right next to it on the right in print large enough to equal the height of the circle. It feels a little large right now, but it still looks great. :)
    Haha, I think you already read my blog, so I won't leave a link. ;)

    1. YAY! Yeah, I like that everything is easy to read on white, and any color goes with it.

      Hmmmm when I have some time I might fiddle with that idea- I thought it might be quite big, but I use a desktop Mac, so it's not that big on my screen xD

      :D

  10. I like the new design, although I miss the cat picture :( I like your new blogger picture. I think the circular thing might be a bit big though. Why did you decide to change? The colours are lovely :)

    1. Thank you :) Me too, but Hunter is on the sidebar with me now :)
      I have since downsized it. I wanted something more clean and I guess 'grown up'. The color was the first green I ever used for Opal Swirls, it took me a week of fiddling to find it :))
