Today is a BIG day for The Skinny Confidential team because we redesigned the site.
The new site design probably took me about a month. Every single detail was carefully crafted by my team to make sure things were easier & more streamlined for you. Of course we wanted it streamlined, but also cute & pretty look at- so there’s that too.
It’s no surprise that I worked with the blog-doo team again to redesign the site.
They are seriously a DREAM to work with. And I’m not just saying that because I co-founded the company with my best friend Erica of @fashionlush. I’m saying it because it truly, actually was the best situation I could’ve asked for.
They literally make all your visions come to life. I had so many random ideas in my head- it had to be uniquely TSC- & they made it a reality.
Sure, I’m super picky, but man oh man is it FUN to evolve the brand & update the website.
Let’s go over each page…shall we?
♡ Homepage ♡
We wanted to make the Homepage very easy for you, especially on your mobile phone. We made the photos bigger, the fonts easier to read & simplified the fuck out of it.
Throughout the Homepage, between post excerpts, you’ll see there’s easy access to @theskinnyconfidential Instagram, the YouTube channel, & the HIM & HER podcast.
At the very bottom of the Homepage you’ll see “get the skinny.” This is where you can subscribe to The Skinny Confidential’s Tipsy Thursday newsletter. This is blasted out every….you guessed it….Thursday. Sign up to get all the juice, MORE free content & all the tips & tricks of your dreams.
Oh, also at the bottom of the Homepage ( & every page ) there are more easy access icons that take you to right to:
♡ The Skinny Confidential BODY App
♡ Amazon to purchase The Skinny Confidential book.
♡ Lauryn Evarts – About & FAQ ♡
Another thing we updated was the About & FAQ pages. I added more info so we can get to know each other a little better- this includes 25 facts you might not know about me.
If you’re a creator & into blog design, you can click on BLOG DESIGN under Lauryn Evarts to go straight to blog-doo.com.
As I mentioned, the designers were incredible to work with & they truly can make your vision ( no matter how picky it is – LOL ) come to life. You can also see blog-doo’s portfolio & blogs they’ve designed.
Not into paying for blog design? No worries- we got you.
You can purchase our Secret Tips e-Book that goes over photography tips, SEO, case studies, worksheets, social media practices & more.
♡ Blog posts ♡
Next we get right into the content. We redesigned the nav bar so you can find exactly what you’re looking for. First up is BEAUTY. We put this at the front because this is what you guys love the most.
If you don’t know already, there are a TON of categories under REALNESS. Here you’ll find posts about:
♡ him ( posts by Michael )
When you hover your mouse over any of these categories ( which we changed from the arrow to the nail painting emoji – how cute! ), the most recent posts will pop up so you can see the latest ASAP.
♡ Recipes ♡
It’s no surprise that I’m no Suzy-Fucking-Homemaker when it comes to cooking, but I have my special hacks. I like things quick, efficient, & healthy ( most the time ) with minimal ingredients.
Well, you can find all those EASY tricks in one spot, with sub-categories to help you find exactly what you’re looking for. Think:
Happy cooking, chef!!
♡ BODY ♡
Recently my trainer Kim Kelly & I launched a new BODY app filled with 28 minute circuit exercises, recipes, a grocery list, life hacks, wellness tips & so much more. We’re updating it all the time too, so stay tuned for some fun challenges, fresh new recipes, & hot grocery store finds.
This page takes you right to the Apple app store where you can instantly download the app & start your 7-day free trial.
If you’re interested in The Skinny Confidential BODY App, be sure to check out this post where you can find out EVERYTHING you’ll get out of the app. I mean, we get into it.
♡ Shop ♡
Next up is the SHOP page. Here is where you’ll find all my favorite products. Like, my ‘ride or die, can’t live without, you have to get it, TRUST ME’ items.
Everything is categorized on the left side so whether you’re looking for home decor on a budget, the stuff your baby can’t live without, or the best book recommendations, it’ll all be super easy to find.
Also want to mention that these are things that I love & talk about all the time, but a lot of the products are from YOU. You guys always have the best recommendations that need to be shared with the whole community, so you’ll find a lot of those things here too.
These products won’t collect cobwebs or get pushed to the back of your drawer- you’ll use them, you’ll love them, you’ll buy them again & again- I know it.
In saying that, a lot of the items are things recommended by our guest posters too, like David Meltzer, Sivan Ayla & Amelia Gray Hamlin.
♡ Podcast ♡
If you click on PODCAST at the top of the site ( a little to the right ) it’ll take you directly to The Skinny Confidential HIM & HER podcast page. From there you’ll see the most recent episodes with their show notes. You can also use the search bar to look up any topic or guest you want to learn about. Think wellness, beauty, activism, health, plastic surgery, relationships & more.
Sidenote: Let me suggest Dom Roberts, Ryan Holiday, & Melissa Wood-Tepperberg.
You can also listen to the most recent podcast episode by clicking ‘play’ on the horizontal scroll bar at the top of every page on theskinnyconfidential.com. EASY.
♡ Book ♡
The book page was updated so that you know EXACTLY what you’ll be getting out of it if you decide to purchase it.
The Skinny Confidential Lifestyle Guide is all about balance. You can expect fun, cheeky tips on beauty, wellness, & skinny eats- plus you can find reader reviews to see what others are saying about it.
From there you can go right to your retailer of choice to purchase the book.
♡ YouTube ♡
By clicking the YouTube tab you’ll go directly to The Skinny Confidential channel. Here you can watch the latest videos ( think: how I told Michael I was pregnant, how to apply fake lashes, & my boob job story ). You can also subscribe so you’ll be notified as soon as a new video comes out.
♡ Ask ♡
Lastly ( but definitely not least ), is the ASK page. There are a ton of questions & answers there, but this page is for us to get to know each other EVEN better!
You can easily, & anonymously, ask me anything & I can answer you. Fun, right?!
You’ll also find our contact details under this tab, so if you want to inquire about a collaboration, or just want to reach out the team, you’ll find all that info there.
So there you have it…all the details of the site revamp: a cleaner, more streamlined layout, added categories, updated About/FAQ, BODY app, & Ask pages, & a breakdown of The Skinny Confidential book.
To wrap this up, I want to let all of you know how much I appreciate all of your support. I’ve seen so many of you shining with positivity through social media, have watched some of you HUSTLE over the last couple years & it’s been so inspiring to watch.
I appreciate you all coming on this journey with me & I look forward to the next 11 years ( can you believe TSC started 11 years ago ??? ). Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine such an incredible community. I couldn’t ask for anything more. Thank you for making my dream become a reality.
And a special shout out to the blog-doo team & my blog-doo co-founder & best friend Erica who helped create my picky vision. Each facet of the site is completely pimped out because of them. Erica is a badass & the blog-doo team rocks. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
+ create your own blog with blog-doo.
++ the upside down triangle: think big, start small.

І’m tгuly enjoying the design and layout of your website.
It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much mߋre pleasant for me to come һere and
vіsit more often. Ⅾid you hire out a designer to creatｅ your
theme? Fantastіc work!
I have been tracking blogdoo since you both announced it back in 2016! I want you guys to BLACK MAGIC my blog once I get it up and running…one fix though I saw today; your tab to tsc.com from blogdoo still shows your old style linked under page one of the SHOWCASE examples, not this Barbie Teen Dream facelift one! On both the thumbnail and expanded. Just a heads up 🙂 Love your work, xoS
