Makeover Mondays #6

I have a short of bad news today. If you didn't notice, summer is coming to an end, and Makeover Mondays were only meant to last for the summer, which means... they're coming to an end too. In fact, this week I'm doing the last makeover of the summer, who was chosen from last week's comments, so... there are no more chances to enter, sorry.

I felt so bad that I couldn't do more makeovers for all of you that I decided to do something crazy last week and I did... TWO makeovers. And it was insane. I can barely keep with one makeover a week. Two was totally exhausting...

So even though I couldn't give everyone their makeover, I do think I did all I could, so I hope you understand and you still liked this idea. And now... let's move on to this week's makeovers!

Basically alice

The first person I chose was Alice of Basically Alice. I knew Alice from Instagram and she's a really sweet girl with a great taste, so when she said she wanted to start blogging I was totally in. This is the description she left:

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

This is what her blog looked like:

And this is what we came up with:


The second person I chose was Rachel of Broomfie. This is the description she left:

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!)

Rachel wanted a simple black & white template. If you've been reading every post you may know by now how much I (don't) love doing these because they're so tricky and hard. So doing 2 designs at the same time became extra challenging because they were super different from each other and super different from what I usually do. But I must admit I'm pretty satisfied with the result...
