Fresh Look + Fresh Giveaway! (Round Two)

by Katelyn Block on December 15, 2011 · 64 comments

Herrow der friends!

EDIT: The first version of this post is freaking out and doesn’t want to exist. I don’t understand my life. Please comment on THIS post, not the other one. I have to keep the other one in order to count those comments. Thank you for your patience!

Today I am very very excited and happy and just a ball on monster energy.

Do you see the new header? That is a la Gabriela. She is currently building up a blog, and knowing her well, I can see that it’s going to be baller. All other new graphic design boom-chaka-lakas are a la moi.

As you can see, I have been spending a lot of time working with my genius friends to beautify the blog, AND my laptop. You know, considering I’m posting this at 3:30 in the morning.

In tune with the fresh look, I have a fresh giveaway for you. All you have to do is answer the question:


Leave a comment below, and I will randomly choose a winner Friday afternoon when I return home to Rochester.

There may just be an early Christmahanakwanzakah gift from yours truly. ;)

(okay, I tease…. there will be)

Have a great Thursday, chickadees!

Read up!

Carolyn November 29, 1999 at 7:00 PM

Girlfriend, I am LOVING the new look! And as a new reader, and your new bff, I have no opinion on what I want to see on the blog… just your pretty face! I’m always on the lookout for on-the-go recipes though! I’m sure you have quite a few up your sleeves to share. Happy end of finals!


Lauren November 29, 1999 at 7:00 PM

Humor & social media in college!


Sheema November 29, 1999 at 7:00 PM

College since I’m in it too and it’s fun relating to others’ experiences!


Carley November 29, 1999 at 7:00 PM

Yay, it’s working now! And again, LOVING the new look–fresh is the perfect way to describe it!

I’d love to see more health/fitness, social media and HUMOR :)


Tracy November 29, 1999 at 7:00 PM

Just a side note- somehow everyone who leaves a comment on this page is leaving it 12 years ago at “November 29, 1999 at 7pm” LOL


Katelyn November 29, 1999 at 7:00 PM

I know!!! I have no freaking idea what is going on. Highly confused. I think a call to Wordpress HELP ME NOW services is in order.


Tracy December 15, 2011 at 3:38 PM

Its kinda nice being in the 90′s again- loved all the boy bands back then :)


Tracy November 29, 1999 at 7:00 PM

My fav thing to read by far are your recipes – surrounded by humor of course and college-isms (ah the memories, lol). Love the new header by the way!


Claire December 15, 2011 at 12:25 PM

Anything from you is hilarious! I recently stumbled upon your blog and it makes me laugh every time I read it! And you’ve inspired me to start one of my own-I just have to figure it all out first!


Liz Marchese December 15, 2011 at 12:28 PM

Health, food and fitness along with college!


Mary December 15, 2011 at 12:30 PM

Vlogs and humor please! :)


Lilly December 15, 2011 at 12:36 PM

please do more vlogs, that last one still has me smiling :)


Georgia @ Trying Something New December 15, 2011 at 12:38 PM

I would love to read about how you balance healthy eating and exercising while in college. I’m also in university, so hearing someone else’s experiences with having to juggle homework and health would be awesome!


Cassie December 15, 2011 at 12:39 PM

I think this is my first comment, so hello! Id like to see more health, food and fitness AND vlogs!

Love the blog!


kaila@ healthy helper! December 15, 2011 at 12:43 PM

Aside from more of your awesomeness?! Hmmmm that’s a toughie! I would say..,more dorm friendly, quick, healthy recipes! Imma need those for college next year! And more sharing of the workouts you’re doing! I love getting new ideas from other bloggers to change up my routine.

PS: could I email you to get some info about how you did all ur selfhosting/theme designing stuff?


Katelyn Block December 15, 2011 at 12:48 PM

Of course! With so much to say, it might take me a million years to respond, though!


Lauren December 15, 2011 at 12:45 PM

I’d love to see more on health/food/fitness! I miss all your yummy recipes :)


chelsey @ clean eating chelsey December 15, 2011 at 12:46 PM

I would love to live vicariously through you, so randomness about college would be great – along with food/fitness/etc.


Sarah OUaL December 15, 2011 at 12:49 PM

LOVE LOVE the new look – you and Gabriela are the shit.

Keeping healthy while you’re keeping up the crazy at the cuse is my fav. Please let me go back in time and join your college life.


Jocelyn @ Enthusiastic Runner December 15, 2011 at 12:50 PM

COLLEGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am living through you right now….


Clare @ Fitting It All In December 15, 2011 at 12:52 PM

you crack me up naturally, so humor is a given. i guess more health/food/fitness!
<3 the new header ladybug


Annette@ EnjoyYourHealthyLife December 15, 2011 at 12:53 PM

great look! Recipes and humor!


Sarah December 15, 2011 at 12:55 PM


What I love about your blog is how positive you are! In all honesty some of the other blogs I read trigger me in negative ways (I have dealt with an ED in the past and so I often times fall victim to comparing myself to other bloggers in terms of fitness and food). But your blog is an entirely different story! Your posts feel human and relaxed and lack judgement in any form. Your blog inspires me to be healthy to a healthy extent not one that borderlines obsession. You feel me?

Anyway, I LOVEd your vlog. It gave me such positive vibes. So please oh please do more vlogs.

Also, I love your posts about family and making breakthroughs and college and healthy habits.I think that you have your priorities in check and to me your posts serve as little reminders to:
A) Take care of myself! Whether that means taking a walk, mediating, reading a book, sleeping, singing, whatever – life is meant to be enjoyed!
B) Remember how much better I feel when you focus on having a healthy balance rather than looking at health in an all or nothing kind of way.
C) No one is perfect. I love that you have shared all of your struggles on this blog and how they have made you strong and capable.

Anyway, you are inspiring to me.
The end.


Catherine December 15, 2011 at 1:15 PM

couldnt have said it better myself!!

your positive outlook has really transformed the way i do absolutely EVERYTHING in my life..


Kate December 15, 2011 at 12:56 PM

I would love to see more health/food/fitness and maybe some current event stuff! Thanks!

Kate :)


Catherine December 15, 2011 at 1:00 PM

umm i say more vlogs because they are hysterical and you actually hit on all the above points (health/fitness/college)! so its a win-win!


Alyssa @ Don't Look Down December 15, 2011 at 1:00 PM

I like a lot of variety so you should keep writing about all those things.


Ellen @ Undercover Runner Eats December 15, 2011 at 1:07 PM

Health, Food, Fitness, and HUMOR! (DOM MAZETTI! D to the O-M!)


Brittany December 15, 2011 at 1:07 PM

Well as I’ve already told you through email I love reading about other college students trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle through the stressful years of college! So, I say keep writing about that stuff! An incorporation of college and fitness/food is perfect! :)


Victoria @ The Pursuit of Hippieness December 15, 2011 at 1:09 PM

Ummm, all of the above. And I think the humor kind of takes care of itself :)


Emily December 15, 2011 at 1:25 PM

I’d love to see more college HUMOR!


Lizzie December 15, 2011 at 1:49 PM



Haley @ Health Freak College Girl December 15, 2011 at 1:58 PM

I love the new page. I love your humor, that’s what keeps me coming back each and every day. But I also like to see fitness and recipes as well.


Jenn's Adventures December 15, 2011 at 7:28 PM

Health, Food, Fitness for sure:)


Sarah Khan December 15, 2011 at 7:32 PM

I think adding some vblogs and even stuff about college/eating healthy and staying balanced would be PERF. It’s so hard to get decent meals in college, between running to/from classes and the not so appealing food put on display in the dining halls. Maybe like, things to stock up on in your dorm? Like, things to eat when you’ve got late night cravings or random snacks you find filling/guilt-free. Your new look is super adorbz and i like the switch up of fonts. K. Duces.


Katelyn Block December 15, 2011 at 8:08 PM

I love you.


Jessie December 15, 2011 at 7:41 PM

health, food & fitness!


JW December 15, 2011 at 7:49 PM

Health food and fitness!


Brynne December 15, 2011 at 7:54 PM

All of the above. Sorry I’m obsessed with you.

(I’m not sorry.)


Lauren December 15, 2011 at 8:12 PM

Haha, I thought something was up when it wouldn’t let me comment today but then I thought it might be my computer. Anyways, I just want to see more of you in anyway! :) <3 the new site girly.


Kayley Ray December 15, 2011 at 8:15 PM

Love the new look! I don’t follow a lot of college-aged bloggers (I tried blogging while balancing studies/social life/everything else and it was rough! Awesome multi-tasking girl!) so some college material might be refreshing. I also love vlogs and health/food/fitness topics!


Kellie @ Compelled To Do So December 15, 2011 at 11:56 PM

College and humor would be delightful! :)


Kara December 16, 2011 at 12:25 AM

Love the new look! Wanna redo mine?! ;)

I’d love to seeee some new recipes (dorm friendly for you) and workouts! Humor is a given, so maybe more college stuff too! Really anythang is fine with me!


Katelyn Block December 16, 2011 at 12:28 AM

As for the blog redesign – I totes would!


Maddy December 16, 2011 at 12:41 AM
