New blog design & WIN a new design for your blog

June 9, 2014

As you may have noticed has had a little bit of a facelift! I’ve been blogging “properly” for coming up to a year now, and whilst I’ve had a lot of fun updating and jazzying up my design and layout myself, I decided that it was time to get the professionals in! I was given the opportunity to work with the wonderfully talented Kotryna Bass, and I’m so happy with my new blog look and feel*! And even better, Kotryna has also kindly said I can give one of you the chance to win a blog make over from her too!


Kotryna makes templates for both Blogger and WordPress which she sells in her independent e-shop – – and her Etsy store – There are sooooo many pretty designs, perfect for all types of blogs and bloggers (it took me aaaages to decide which look I wanted to go for!) in the end I chose the Summer Of Love Template as I was keen to keep a similar font to what I was previously using for headers etc and of course my favourite turquoise colour!



Kotryna is a blogger herself ( – her style and photographs are to die for!) so has great insiders knowledge as to what works best for blogs in terms of layouts etc. As well as her beautiful pre-made templates, Kotryna also creates add-ons such as signatures, headers, and social media icons so is worth checking out, even if you’re happy with the majority of your current blog design. She also makes custom designs too if you want to go for something completely unique.

I’m really happy with my new design – it’s really simple but pretty and looks a lot more professional than my previous DIY job! Thank you Kotryna
Kotryna wants to share the love even further by giving one of you the chance to win:

**Pre-made template of your choice from her store**
**File preparation and free installation**
**Post design support**

All you have to do is enter via the Rafflecopter below:
