CRYING.

PERSPIRING.

DYING.

BUT REALLY, wiping sweat from my upper lip…

Because FINALLY The Skinny Confidential, new & improved, is HERE.

You won’t believe it but it’s literally taken me & the blog-doo team nine months to complete this pretty, little redesign.

Yes, it’s true, I am THAT obnoxious.

Really though, Erica ( my partner in blog-doo ) wants to kill me slowly…very slowly. She said she’s never experienced anyone so picky in her life.

Meanwhile, I could have totally gone another month-ISH going back & forth.

SO it was time to pull the trigger & do the big reveal of the new TSC.

Changes?

WHY YES.

Clearly there’s more than gazillion!

All pages were updated: about/FAQ, book, BBG, collaboration page, ETC.

Basically we simplified EVERYTHING.

Crystal clear is the theme going on now. Everything is cleaner, simpler, & just easier to navigate.

I’m a huge fan of evolving. When you’re pursuing your passion it’s so important to EVOLVE right? Nothing worse than staying stagnant.

SO on that note, if you follow me on Snapchat you know Michael & I have been working on a fun, kind of different project that we’ve been dying to share— wait for it…A HIM & HER PODCAST!!

SO excited. BECAUSE it’s going to be centered around all of YOUR questions. That’s right, YOU will sort of dictate the show. Snapchat has been such a fun platform to engage with you guys on, that we figured “WHAT THE HELL, let’s do a weekly podcast!”

Stalk our podcast page here. & SUBSCRIBE ON iTUNES. Really though, subscribe! We need subscribers AKA you guys.

We’ll have one episode up every Wednesday. To ask a question, Tweet or Instagram us with the hashtag #ASKHIMANDHER & we will certainly make sure to answer your questions on the podcast!

Sticking with the vibe here: an ASK LAURYN page was added so we can interact in like one second. Thrilled about this because we can get down & dirty on the spot, you know?

THE REVAMP INCLUDES:

+ a cleaner, more simplistic layout

+ added categories such as BUSINESSHIM & REALNESS.

+ a newly launched HIM & HER podcast…SO, SO EXCITED FOR THIS

+ BBG explanation page

+ TSC BOOK breakdown page

+ an ASK LAURYN page

+ more video

+ TRAVEL ( & travel vlogs ) will become an even bigger theme too!

I hope you LOVE the new site! If you have any feedback, as always leave it below.

Cheeseball-ISH: the amount of hours I’ve sat at this computer is INSANE. Like, I should be institutionalized.

Here’s to all the Friday nights I spent sitting at home alone blogging rather than going out. And to the night’s out…where I bring my laptop to the table while everyone is eating…& eer, drinking. HA! Hopefully this site re-design makes it all worth it.

Of course, THANKS to all of YOU. I am so grateful! A special virtual make out kiss to those of you who have read along from the beginning, the real TSC OG-ers. I feel like I know some of you guys! Your comments, opinions, Snaps, etc. I am SO lucky to have such amazing readers.

I never could’ve imagined such an insane group of women coming together through TSC Community. It’s unreal. I am a regular girl from San Diego who was a total broke-ass bartender paying for college while ( slowly ) building The Skinny Confidential.

Again, thanks guys for helping my dreams become a reality.

& always remember: YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU WANT TO DO WITH HARD WORK, DETERMINATION,…AND SOME GOOD OLD HUSTLE. Really, anything.

Anyway, the weekly newsletter is being blasted out tomorrow AM— if you’re interested in receiving it, simply SUBSCRIBE.

( Can’t forget about blog-doo’s help with the redesign…my co-founder, Erica & the BD team are truly amazing. I wanted to stab my eyeballs out throughout the whole process so I’m sure she had some weirder thoughts…she’s helped me every step of the way EVEN when I’m really, extra fucking psycho ).

Hope you all love The Skinny Confidential’s facelift, LOVE YOU GUYS!

    I like the redesign and I know i will be obsessed with the podcast. I have a comment though. The pink hyperlinks are kind of hard to see at a glance. Maybe a darker shade would be easier to see. as I’m typing this comment it’s coming out all capitals… is that the font?

    I love the blog and your snapchat though!

    The new site looks amazing! I have been blogging for a year and a half with a site design that I have wanted to update and I have yet to pull the trigger because I want the work to be worth it and it to be perfect. Both you and Lauren Conrad just rolled out new designs and its making me feel so inspired to finally make mine happen!
