UPDATE: Thanks for all the feedback thus far islandistas and keep it coming! From what we're hearing thus far, you like the layout, but you're not as enamoured of the colour scheme so we're going to work on that.

The good thing about this theme is that even though it is a pre-set Wordpress theme, it is pretty flexible and we can change the background (the bit that is pale yellow with the polka dots) and the header.

So we will be experimenting a bit more with this layout to see what we can get out of it. If you have any other ideas or suggestions, drop a comment below or email us at islandista@gmail.com!

So islandistas, we dont know if you've noticed it but we're going to be celebrating a big milestone soon!

Yep, on Saturday, it's going to be our second birthday ...woo-hoo!

For two years, we have stayed with our Black Letter-Head theme but with it being our birthday soon, we feeling to get a new look.

So we're trying out this new theme Bueno. It's still very 'islandista' with the pink accents but has more of a blog-zine type feel which ties in perfectly with some of the plans we intend to unveil this year.

So... your thoughts? What do you think? Is Bueno bueno or should we do like Amy Winehouse and go back to black?

Let us know!


  1. I like the idea of adding a little color, but I think this layout is a little to bland

  2. much better layout! 2 thumbs up!

  3. Happy 2nd b-day y'all!!!!!

    Maybe I need to get used to this format but I'm just accustomed to the black. Also the pink type on a white background is hard on the eyes.
    A darker pink might be better for people to read.
    My 2 cents.

  4. The layout is ok the color scheme needs some work. The color scheme reminds of wrapping that might be used for a baby shower...my two cents.

  5. change is good but I think the new format still needs a tweak or two...maybe a bolder colour?
