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 (!!):
