Makeover Mondays #5 : Cristy Nottingham

Last week's winner was Cristy of Cristy Jade Lydia, and this is what her blog looked like:

She has an absolutely gorgeous blog. I'm so jealous of her photography skills, so if there was anyone who really deserved the makeover, that was her. This was the description she left:

Hello, my name is Cristy and my blog is called Cristy Jade Lydia and I recently started blogging more frequently. I have Had my blog for about a year now but was never happy with it and didnt post frequently, but now i post about all things beauty, fashion and lifestyle. I really enjoy blogging and have found that its a great hobby of mine. i would love to win the blog make over because Im never fully happy with how i design my blog because im not very good with all this designing malarcy, and would love to have my blog looking fab like all the other winners.

I fell in love with her blog as I was doing the makeover and all I could think was "why wasn't I following her?", so I'm seriously telling you: you have to check out her blog!

She wanted a girly and pastel blog so this is what I came up with...

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 Monday, 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 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.

Have a nice day and good luck!

  3. Your blog's name: The Alisha Diaries

    Your blog's URL: www.thealishadiaries.blogspot.co.uk

    A brief description of your blog: My blog is a place where I can express myself without feeling judged. I tend to write about my life and about my journey so far.

    Your e-mail (so I can contact you): alishajadsfaz@gmail.com

    Why you want to win the makeover: I'd love to win this makeover as, if you can't tell already by the design of my blog I am not blessed with the gift of design (but how I'd love to be) as my design is extremely simple. I think if I had a more of a beautiful blog design then I'd feel more confident within my blog and more confident to go on with blogging (But I'll probably keep blogging either way as it's defiantly one of my favourite hobbies). If I were to describe my blog in one word at the moment I'd probably say it's very melancholy.

  6. Your blog's name: Ruby Red Rouge

    Your blog's URL: www.rubyredrouge.blogspot.co.uk

    A brief description of your blog: I have only recently set up my blog, however my blog will be my creative outlet. A place to share ideas, inspirations and recommendations about everything form beauty to crafts.

    Your e-mail (so I can contact you): rubyredrouge@outlook.com

    Why you want to win the makeover: I've only recently started my blog - I never thought i had the skills to create a blog and whenever I began to start creating one i would get bogged down by template designs! I've decided to go for it and have set up Ruby Red Rouge, i'm beginning to get my head around templates but i have no where near the design skills you do! I would love the opportunity to have my blog designed by you - to have a beautiful design that i can be proud to publish posts on.

    I am crossing my fingers!

  7. Looks stunning!

    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.

  9. I came onto your blog after seeing Jade's new design and really love your blog, and your designing, you really do deserve more credit for what you do!

    Your blog's name: Life as Amazzable
    Your blog's URL: http://rawramazzable.blogspot.co.uk/
    A brief description of your blog: My blog is a place for me to vent my feelings, and share with the world my interests and worries. I love to sit down and write a blog post and really want a page that is attractive to look at.
    Your e-mail (so I can contact you): amziistrev@googlemail.com
    Why you want to win the makeover: I would love to win the makeover because I want my blog to look appealing. I don't think blogging is all about getting loads of viewers, it's about writing posts you're happy with, but, for the viewers who do look at my page, I would love it to be attractive to their eye. Getting a re-design would provide me with a way of re-launching my blog and make me 100% happy with it.

    Thank-you :)

  11. Hi my name is Elizabeth and my blog is called Fashion Is My First Language and its URL is http://fashionismyfirstlanguage.blogspot.ie/.I love fashion and anything vintage so my blog is about the things I love and are inspired by as well as what I wear and the places I go.I'm always looking for new adventures and take my camera with me everywhere.I'd love to win the makeover as at the moment I'm really not happy with the design and am terrible with computers so don't have any idea whatsoever.I love the look of blogs such as "Wish Wish Wish" and wish I had a blog design that would let my personality shine through.

    1. oh and my email is elizabethmurdock10@gmail.com xx

  12. 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!

  13. This is my favorite one so far, Be! You did an amazing job! (=

  14. My blog is Hattie Hards (hattiehards.blogspot.co.uk) and I do a mixture of different kinds of posts, from lifestyle to book reviews and recommendations. It's quite girly as well
    My email is harriethards@gmail.com.
    I would love to win this makeover as I really love blogging and the writing aspect of it, but I have no skills in the technical design side. I want my blog to look better because it is what people first see, even before they read the content. My lack of a proper template is really holding me back at the moment. I would absolutely love to win this, you are amazing at this and I know you would do an awesome job if you did mine

  15. her photography is so nice!
