{day #7: Fabulous K Design}

I've been waiting all week for this giveaway! Kelly and I became blog buddies a few years ago when I discovered her lovely blog, Fabulous K. I instantly connected with her style & love for great design! Kelly is graphic designer, fashion lover, and photography, art + design junkie who lives in Dallas, which also happens to be one of my favorite cities! Her blog designs are stylish, unique, and fabulous!

She was gracious enough to offer a custom blogger design, which includes a custom designed header, matching background and color coordination of titles + links ($90 value.) 

To enter leave a comment here telling me why you need a blog makeover!
For an additional entry, become a follower. 
For a third entry, visit  Fabulous K Design and share your favorite design. 
And for a final entry, spread the word on your blog or Facebook!
The winner will be announced on Saturday!
Good luck!

I think one look at my blog is explanation enough as to why I need a makeover. But I'll save you the trip (wouldn't want to hurt your eyes), and just tell you. I got a makeover from a pro a few years ago, and while I loved it, I recently decided that I needed a change. So I used one of bloggers pre-made templates. Somehow, that didn't override the code for the background from the OLD design, and for the life of me I can't figure out how to get rid of it, and frankly, I don't have the energy to figure it out, so I have half new design and half old design (and they don't really mesh well together). It would be so much easier to have someone who knows what they're doing make my blog pretty again.

Love Kelly! I actually need some help with a new Blog I am starting! =)

Alli (and Tommy too!) said...

I'd love a blog makeover because I'm just starting to have more followers and post more regularly!

Laura said...

I would LOVE a fresh look on my blog... Maybe it would get me motivated to blog more regularly once again. I have been stuck in a rut as far as the design goes for a while now. That is why I need to win this!

My favorite design is Martin Blessings! Love it.

Allie Waite said...

Oooh oooh ooooh!! I really want this one!! My blog could definitely use a nice makeover! I've tried making a customer header and background multiple times, but it never works out. It's super frustrating. So this would be AMAZING! Me me me!

jeanine @ i heart interiors said...

If you saw my blog, it would be pretty self-explanatory why I need a blog makeover. The two biggest problems though, are that header is too short and I wish the colors in it were brighter.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Allie Waite said...

Also, I visited the website and my favorite designs were Artelexia, and Style Within Reach!

Allie Waite said...

I also shared it on facebook. hoorah!

I have been learning a bit about css and html to try and do it myself, but man do I ever need help! I love kelly fresh and clean aesthetic especially because she infuses it with such glamour!

Mary @HoP Interiors said...

As much as I love my blog (and I love it dearly), sometimes it just looks like a hot mess - like a fabulous pair of shoes with a bad outfit! It definitely some Fabulous K magic. Her work is amazing and she has sprinkled some of that K-dust on many a-blog making them look uber glam. I'm in dire need of some of that! I have my fingers crossed xx

Evie B. said...

Seriously in need of a blog update! What an AWESOME giveaway! Pick me, wontcha?

The Eskimo said...

Am I allowed to combine three of my entries into one? Here goes nothin'.

1. I desperately need a blog makeover because my blog was poorly designed by yours truly and I am majorly lacking in creativity. I realllllly want tabs at the top of my blog and a new way to leave comments.

2. My favorite design of Kelly's is Bright Bizarre. I love the simplicity.

3. On Monday I featured my favorite things and listed Fabulous K as a great gift idea! What perfect timing!

krista said...

these blog designs are awesome. i definitely need a blog makeover.

Carrie @ lovely etc. said...

Would love a blog makeover! I never feel like I have the time or know-how to fix things up on my own.

Alyssa said...

I would love a blog makeover! I currrently just have a standard template and am so uninspired, I havent been using the blog. A new look and design would help me get the push I need to connect to the blog world!

L.A. in the bay said...

Oh my gosh, I am triple zillion crossing my fingers for this! I have had a pre-made design for quite some time now, and I have been wanting a custom design, but do not have the money right now for it. I really want a design that is a true expression of me, and Kelly is probably the best at what she does.
PRAYING I WIN!!!!!!!!!!

One Fish said...

Love Kelly's work. Who wouldn't want one of her designs?

Blatttattat said...

Oh I love Design Gal! I recently found them and now see that they their hands on some other designs that I love, ie Luella & June!

I am in need of new look. Well, a look period. What I have on my site now doesn't represent the passion I have for working with women to build their confidence and create that "know-how" on how to have their cake and eat it too!

Look out for three entries!

Darbyut said...

I need it so I can finally start my blog. I haven't had time to mess with the design myself. I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so I can't start blogging until the design is done right. Plus, I love Fabulous K and follow her blog. Best blog designer out there! :)
