Introducing Makeover Mondays

I've been saying that I had a big surprise coming up for almost the whole month and today it was time to reveal what it was, so let me introduce you to... MAKEOVER MONDAYS!

Source [x]

What are makeover mondays?

The idea for Makeover Mondays was inspired by this youtube channel, where an interior designer would give one lucky subscriber a free bedroom makeover every week, although in my case, I will be giving one free blog makeover every monday.

How does it work?

It's actually very easy, but a bit difficult to explain, so I'll try to do it the best I can:
  1. Every Monday I'll make a new blog post showing a makeover I did.
  2. If you want to win a makeover for your blog, you'll have to leave a comment on that post.
  3. You have the whole week to leave your comments.
  4. The next Monday, I'll choose and message the winner.
  5. The winner has 24 hours to answer to my email, or else I will choose a different person.
  6. From that day and until the end of the week, I will work on a free custom blog design for the winner, asking him/her what he/she wants so we can create the perfect template.
  7. Next Monday I will make a new post showing the makeover and again, you can leave comments to win the next makeover. 
  8. It goes on like this until my summer holidays end.

What does the design include?

  • Header
  • Favicon
  • Navigation bar
  • Social icons
  • Sidebar titles
  • About me / welcome graphic
  • Posts signature
  • Optimized titles for SEO
  • Help with the installation 
  • Back to top button 
  • Default avatar for comments (for anonymous users and blogger users with no avatar)
  • Apple touch icon
  • Grab button
  • Contact page
  • Custom buttons for older posts/newer posts/home.
  • Post dividers
NOTE: This may vary depending on what you need/want. We can add and skip things.
You should also know that I can't draw. AT ALL. So I warn you my headers are not the best, but I hope we will find a way to make something you like.

Blogs I have designed 

In chronological order:


  • You must be following me on bloglovin'.
  • You must be a blogger user. I don't know how to design anything for wordpress or any other blogging platforms... Sorry.
  • As I said before, I will contact the winner on Monday, and you have 24 hours to reply to that email.
  • All the designs will include a little credit (it will be small, I promise) that you cannot remove.
  • I only have one week to work on the design.
  • I won't just copy someone's template. When I used tumblr, I remember being asked to make a theme like the one some other user had. Please don't ask me to do this. You can send me blog designs you like for inspiration, or you can tell me you like certain elements in their designs, but please don't ask me to completely copy the whole template.
  • Please do not enter if you are going to unfollow me afterwards, or if you won't use the template.

What must the comment include?

  • Your blog's name
  • Your blog's URL
  • A brief description of your blog
  • Your e-mail (so I can contact you)
  • Why you want to win the makeover


  • You have until Sunday (included) to leave your comment. 
  • I will choose one winner and send him/her an email next Monday. 
  • If you don't answer in 24 hours, I will choose someone else.
  • We have until next Sunday to work on the design.

If you have any questions, leave a comment below or send me an e-mail to lovefrombe@gmail.com.

I hope you like this idea. Have a nice day and good luck!

    I post a little bit of everything like lifestyle, DIY, Beauty... unfortunately I can't do much for now because I don't have enough material to do certain things and the picture's when taken by me have not the best quality since I take them with my phone.
    I want to win because I want my blog to have it's own design that no one else can have, like a personal image of the blog itself and that would mean a lot to me.

    Info: Well, basically, our blog is about us. We both share love for fashion, and we want to share it with everyone else who might happen to stumble by our blog. (= We just surpassed our first month of blogging, and it's going great so far (= In the future, we'd love to do posts related to Food, DIYs, Crafts and the like.
    Our email: kimandkyleinquiries@gmail.com
    Why we want to win: We're a big fan of your blog design since we laid eyes on Sophie's blog(and your blog of course!). We'd really love to have you design our blog layout. We're not really that great with html/graphics so we're just not satisfied with our current layout. But I'm pretty sure we'll love whatever you'll design. We really want our blog to professional, or at least eye-catching. We hope you can help us! (=
