Ok, so a bunch of you guys know that I have a side business called Blog-Doo with my GF, Erica.

( If you’re like, “huh?? WTF are you talking about?” I’ll sum it up: it’s a blog design company for up & coming bloggers or hottie bloggers who want to re-vamp their current site. More here ).

And lately, we’ve been working on a lil somethin’, somethin’.

AKA busting ass to bring you a new & improved site.

✚ ✚ ✚ THE BLOG-DOO TRIBE IS GROWING ✚ ✚ ✚

▷▷ Katie, blogger at The Fashion Bite: our Head of Communications & total web design guru. She’s basically a badass bitch who makes sure the day-to-day runs super smooth at BD HQ. She makes our lives ten times easier.

▷▷ Natalie, blogger at Halfway to Harmony: our latest addition & a serious graphic design prodigy. She handles all the artistic aspects of the company, has creative energy that won’t stop, & her logos/mood-board designs are literally off the charts amazing.

Plus we utilize Zack from Typical Culture for a lil video & GIF work and my amazing little sister, Mimi, works BTS ( she helps me stay organized…& sane! ).

& naturally, Pixy, my chihuahua works the hardest. Her job entails treats, sun bathing, & “overseeing” e-mails.

Dream team, right?!

Anyway (!!):

Oh, & not only does Eileen just have jewelry on her site, this babe also does custom orders for skulls. If you follow me on Instagram you know that we just collabed on a gothic skull- his name is The Spanish Inquisition & he’s currently living on my dining room table ( surrounded by black candles, naturally ). Guys, meet the handsome man created by Eileen:
