Makeover Mondays #4: Madam Ann

It's Monday again! Also known as... Makeover Mondays. You know I like to post this in the morning, but I'm very sorry, I couldn't. I was out for the weekend and couldn't do anything for my blog. This also meant I didn't have all the time I wanted to have for the template, so I'm making a little change on this week rules (since I'll be out next weekend again): I'll contact the winner of this week's makeover ON SATURDAY. I'm doing this so I can give your blog the time it deserves so I hope you're ok with it.

But now... moving on to what I did last week... last week's winner was Ann or Madam Ann, and this is the description she left:

my blog is called "madam ann" and it is about beauty and fashion stuff. I mostly do reviews because I love sharing my experiences and might help someone because I think reviews are really helpful. I'm quite new to the blogger world but I already start to step out of my comfort zone! I'd like to win the makeover because, well, I have no talent when it comes to design my blog. I would have ideas but I have no idea how to create everything the way I want so it would be amazing if you (and I see from the pictures that you have a lot of talent!) could make a nice design for me :)

And this is what we worked on...

Do you want to win next week's makeover?


  • 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.
  • I will contact the winner on Saturday, and you have 24 hours to reply to that email. 
  • If you don't, I will choose someone else.
  • 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 ON SATURDAY
  • 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.

Have a nice day and good luck!

  3. The colour scheme is so pretty! I love the ombré effect, looks very chic! And the back to top button is so cute! Great design :)

    I just wanted to say how thankful I am that you are giving us this opportunity! There are so many Blog designers out there that charge a lot for their designs so it's so admirable that you're taking time to help us! Even if I don't win, I want you to know how much you are appreciated! <3
    My blog name is "Every Day In Grace" and it's a lifestyle blog where I write about beauty, baking, fashion, what I'm loving and life updates. I like to think of it as a mix between my diary and a chance to talk to my readers. :)

    I want to win because I've seen the amazing design you've created for Katie's World of Beauty and was so impressed by the other designs you have done! I've tried designing my blog before, but it hasn't worked out. I've given up on it but then I stumbled across your blog and I felt like it was a miracle that I now have this opportunity! Thanks so much!


  4. You are so talented the design of this site is lovely. keep them coming I am really enjoying these posts Lucy x

    1. aw I'm so glad you think so and liked it <3

  7. You did an excellent work Belen, as always! Well done!!! :D


  8. Ann's blog looks so lovely, you are so talented and it looks like you captured exactly what she was looking for.

    I'm Meg and my blog is 'Meg Says' (www.meg-says.com) and I first started it in March after being diagnosed with multiple chronic illnesses and sadly having to leave my degree at university to move back home with my parents so that they could care for me. I was bedridden for many months and over a year down the line, I'm still unable to leave the house most weeks. One of the only positive things that has come from becoming disabled at the age of twenty has been blogging - I blog mainly about health, beauty, lifestyle, fashion, advice and positivity. I've met some amazing people and have had some brilliant opportunities! I'd love to win a makeover with you as you always do an incredible job and put so much effort into them. As I haven't been able to work due to my illnesses, I also don't have any income and trying to find free templates that are actually nice is really difficult, sometimes! My email is: megsaysemailme@gmail.com. Hope you have a great week <3

  9. My blog is Elesaurus, a beauty, fashion, and lifestyle blog which is still in its infancy. It's your average girly blog with a little bit everything and is updated very regularly with hauls, videos, reviews and more.
    My email is elesaurusrex@gmail.com
    I would love a blog makeover as I am hopeless at that sort of thing and as such my blog is a slightly customised version of the simple template. I feel this is something that really holds my blog back and, looking at your beautiful blog design, I know you could make something awesome for me!

  10. Hi! My name is Jabi! Saw the beautiful job on Rose Paddington's blog and jst had to enter because I luurved it!

    My blog name is ClosetFreedom. >www.closetfreedom.blogspot.com

    Right now my blog is about fashion items tailored to fit my very tiny student budget. And also as a creative outlet because I'm an Accounting post grad and its jst very hectic so my blog serves as my little dot on the internet!

    My e-mail address is jabi.closetfreedom@gmail.com

    I want to win because I want my blog to represent me and I have no idea how to even begin to make that happen. I'm attracted to super cute blogs and I jst feel like I wouldn't visit my own blog in its current state! Lol-)!

  12. Wow - this is an amazing competition!
    Hi, my blog is Broomfie (www.broomfie.blogspot.com) and is mainly concerned with my move from the UK to Vancouver in a few weeks. I'll hopefully be travelling quite a bit, but in the mean time I'm posting about what travelling I am doing now, beauty, fashion and quite a bit about books!

    I would love to win the make-over because, plainly, I cannot make any sense of html and other coding. It took me all evening to figure out how to get my photos without a white border! I have been putting so much effort into my blog since I started it 3 weeks ago but I really feel like it's my layout that is holding me back. It's the sort of style I want but it's really not quite right. It doesn't look too professional in my opinion but I don't know what else to do! Your designs (that I have seen) are much more like I want and I really, really wish you could be lovely and help me out (please, please, please!)

    (I could only do that because you put it at the bottom of the page - thank you so much for that btw!)

  13. This is the best blog competition so far! Omg

    Hi, I`m Jia. My blog`s name is ROUGH & TOUGH because I was inspired by No Doubt`s song Settle Down. It says "I`m a rough & tough; nothing`s gonna knock this girl down." and I knew it just had to do something for my life and my blog.

    My blog is about fashion/personal style, lifestyle, and music. I am very honest when it comes to my opinions and I try to add a little spunk to my posts to match my personality. I know every blog post is an opportunity for me to improve not just as a blogger, but also as a writer. I love taking photos of my outfits as well as promoting online shops, post music/playlists, and just blog about whatever exciting it is that happened to me recently.

    I want to win this makeover because I know there's always room for improvement. I am definitely not a pro at making themes and I still think there's something missing with my current theme. I want something fresh, something unique, something that would represent the entirety of my blog just by looking at its theme. I want it to be functional.

    My blog is http://jiaachacruz.blogspot.com and you can email me at jiaachacruz@gmail.com

    Hope I really win this one!

  14. Great competition! I'm happy with my blog layout at the moment but this is such a good opportunity for those who aren't. x

  15. Hi, My name is Heather.

    My blog's name is Heather's Way and I pride it on being a beauty and baby blog. Beauty because I'm pretty much obsessed with make up and Baby because I am a soon to be first time mummy...(in 9 day's time to be exact) I write posts that i feel appeal to all of those first time parents out there and even those who aren't to help reassure with products and all things that i personally experienced throughout pregnancy and soon to be parenthood. Hopefully my beauty reviews/posts attract those in the wider beauty blogging community to really help share knowledge and tips/tricks!

    I would love to win this makeover because I have been on and off of the blog scene dabbling in posts here and there for the last year or so but now i have the time and a lot more inspiration (thanks to my son) to really get creative and write about what I'm passionate about. I would love to really make my blog have an impact in the blogging community. I feel there are a lot of area's that could be improved on my blog especially the header! I really want a layout/theme that represents what my blog is all about.

    1. Thanks a lot! I'm still not as talented as you, though. xx

  17. Hey, my name is alice and my blog name at the moment is @pastel_bows with the URL http://pastelbowss.blogspot.co.uk, however I might change this as they cannot be the same. I've only just started my blog so I haven't posted anything yet but in the future I will be posting things including fashion, beauty, photography, food and lifestyle. Your designs are absolutely amazing, I would love to win the makeover as at the moment my blog doesn't look good enough to post anything. I feel by having a blog it could help me escape from the world for a bit and hopefully give advice to other people who may read my blog:)xxx

  18. Looks so beautiful!

    Brunette In Black - http://brunetteinblackblog.blogspot.pt/
    Blogging has been a passion of mine since 2009 and this year I wanted to take it further. I wanted to share what I love, inspire people and be inspired, to share a little bit of myself with the rest of the world.
    I would like to win the makeover because I want my blog to have something unique and special, the personal image of the blog itself and me.

    xx, M | Brunette In Black

  19. Hello lovely!

    My blog name is: lovefromlou - http://lovefromlouu.blogspot.co.uk

    my blog is basically about beauty, fashion and health, I also do reviews:) I like to try and test things for people and then give my honest opinion on them, I also like to create makeup looks and fashion outfits for people who may not have a lot of money to spend on fancy clothing. I also include health as I think being a teenager things can be stressful and teens can feel self conscious or worried about their health including skin, so I try and help with that (although I don't have a lot on it yet);)

    email: louisedicks98@gmail.com

    I would love to win this makeover because I am fairly new to blogger, so my blog is a bit of a mess at the moment haha. I really want to expand and explore the blogging world and I feel like having such an amazing looking blog will help me. I just wanted to say thankyou for the opportunity and I hope I win:D
