Makeovers Make Me Happy!

WOOHOO!
The day has finally come.

So Obsessed With has a stylish new look that I legit adore.

Seriously, y'all, I cannot say enough about how much I love this new design. I first heard of Designer Blogs when GReadsBooks got a new look, and I bookmarked their site for future reference. Ginger mentioned that she'd gone with one of their pre-made designs that was affordable AND adorable! Well, color me intrigued!

I kept dreaming about getting a new look on the blog. Everything you've seen on here until now has been done by myself, and I haven't really loved the looks I've tried out. So, I just kept biding my time and thinking about the day I'd do an official overhaul.

While I would have loved to do something custom, I knew that it wasn't practical for me and where I'm at with blogging. I love this place and my readers, but I'm not ready to shell out the big bucks for a custom design. When I started blogging again in December, I began thinking about getting a makeover around here to spruce things up. 

I ended up just making some changes myself and calling it a day, but I couldn't stop thinking about making this place prettier. So, I kept searching and checking out design websites... but I always came back to Designer Blogs. I couldn't find anything else that really compared as far as the price and the look. I wanted both! I wanted a design that I loved, that fit me and was something I'd want for a long time, but I wasn't ready for a huge financial investment.


A few weeks ago, I decided that I was definitely going to take the plunge. Now I just had to pick a look! I spent a few days debating which pre-made template I wanted to choose, but I knew that I had to go with this one because I kept going back to it again and again.

I finally placed my order last week, and my designer, Lindsey, emailed me really quickly. Within a week, she sent me a preview to review. Hello, AMAZING! As soon as I'd looked things over, she went to work and did her thing. And now I'm in love and so happy! I also really appreciated how quickly she answered a few of the questions I had, and I'm so glad she was involved in my blog makeover.

So, if you're dreaming of a new look for your blog, I'd HIGHLY recommend the ladies at Designer Blogs. They've got so many choices to pick from for both Blogger and Wordpress sites. There's numerous add-ons you can purchase to customize things even more - or you can always go with a completely custom design! Whatever you want, they've got you covered. I'm also happy to answer any questions about my experience. If you do end up using them, mention that I sent you over! I'd love for them to know I referred you and they've got a really awesome referral program. I hope you like the new look because...

I'M SO OBSESSED WITH IT!

  4. I've always thought about doing a blog design but I'm so scared that it'll mess up my actual blog posts because they're all weird and not paragraph-y that I've never taken the plunge. Yours is SO AWESOME. I love it. I would seriously freak out if I had to reformat all of my lists and Three-Things and everything. Imagine my Southern fainting-pose! Cause it would be THAT, very dramatically.

  7. Okay, so I tried to comment earlier and I guess it didn't take. LAME.

    What I tried to say was that this is beautiful, clean, and mellow. I love it!

    1. Thanks Melissa :) I'm waaaaaayyyy behind on blog reading, too. I got into a blogging funk and decided to loosen up on reading blogs for a bit (just temporarily) because I was stressing so much about it. Thanks for the sweet words about my new look!
