BLOG Re-Design: A Glass of Wine + Blog Design Business LAUNCH + Giveaway!!!

Hello lovelies! :) Today I have another blog re-design news to share with you! It's a design that I did for a friend of mine, the lovely Kathy from A Glass Of Wine blog! It's been up for a while now, but I didn't get a chance to make the announcement yet, as I was busy working on another blog design (for the equally lovely Reanna).

If you don't follow Kathy's blog yet, you are missing out, so be sure to click over right now and follow her! She is the kindest and sweetest person, and a truly fabulous reviewer!

Here's a link to Kathy's blog: A Glass Of Wine

Here's Kathy's old look (which, BTW, was my design, too):

Here's A Glass OF Wine's new look:

Kathy wanted a pink and black theme for her blog that would look girlish! Every graphic is custom designed (I designed the vectors in Adobe Illustrator especially for Kathy! I also made custom social media buttons, which you can see on the right - in the wine glasses).

Post headers and sidebar widget headers were designed and put together by me, too.
Kathy's header is clickable (you can click on the social media buttons), and the navigation bar is a custom one, too.

Here's Kathy's button!

How do you like it? :)


I have decided to open my own blog designing business! :) I am already working on my first project (which is going to be AWESOME, here's a sneak peak of the graphics I designed so far!)

and the custom designed potion vials that I am turning into social media buttons!
