1 Year Blogiversary!

Vegan Cupcake from Seattle's Cupcake Royale
AHHH! Three different names, 4 major changes and finally 1 major accomplishment. An entire year of blogging. I promised myself that I would try my very best to make it an entire year and I did. I finally feel like I'm at a spot where I love where this project is headed and I actually know where it's going!

It may not seem like a big deal to you but it is to me because I made a commitment to myself and I stuck with it! An entire year! I stuck with it. If I can stick with something, like a blog, for an entire year then I can stick with anything for at least a year.

Sooo... YAY!!! Yay, to one entire year of finding myself in a career, in wellness and in health! I would love for you to celebrate with me! How do you celebrate your accomplishments? I'm celebrating mine with one gorgeous vegan cupcake from a local Seattle Vendor... and it's delightful.

Make a wish! ... To the next year!

My Worst Nightmare

That's right, guys. My internet is out at home... it's pretty much the worst, first world problem, that can happen when you live alone. I'm working on getting it fixed. I just want to check in and let you know that I've been hard at work trying to get it up and running. In the mean time, I've been creating some great new posts. I just can't actually post them!

Hopefully it'll be up and running by tomorrow night! I'll try and keep you up to date!

Make Fit.com, A New Name, A New Lifestyle

As you might have guessed, I did a lot of re-structuring of my blog and it was for a good reason. To be totally honest with you, I was getting scared that I was trying to be someone that I'm not. I love sewing and I love clothes but I started to feel like A Redesigned Love's posts were becoming homework assignments and, let's be real, no one likes homework.

I noticed what I really enjoyed more then anything was researching healthy recipes, learning about nutrition, fitness, toning and being able to use my camera to work on my photography. After thinking is over for the past month, I decided that it really was the direction my blog was headed in and I might as well take the dive and re-name A Redesigned Love to something that my blog was really about.

Make-Fit.com

What I love about "Make" is that it's my lifestyle. It can be my crafts, recipes, foods, parties, etc. It's very broad, which is terrific because I really do enjoy making various things. "Fit" is going to be one of my favorite parts of this blog because I'm learning a lot about nutrition, health and fitness everyday. I love reading articles on how to tone our bodies and learning to stay motivated. I'm genuinely excited to begin.

I know this is a big change from what I was doing before but I feel confident about it. I think I have a lot more to do and say based of these topics because it's already how I live my life. This blog is legitimately going to be a representation of my lifestyle and I hope you'll be along for the ride!

Let me know what you are interested in!

On my Sewing Table: Vest Update


You might be wondering what the heck is going on with the vest that I am working on. "Why the heck hasn't she given us an update"!? Might be on your mind.

Well, I ran into a pickle (if you will). Apparently, regular sewing needles don't magically go through 3 thick layers of leather. Go figure.

What's happening is that the needle goes through but the leather so many layers that the thread isn't catching the bottom thread from the bobbin. So, I had to go out and buy a set of special leather sewing needles. I'm hoping this will help out. If not, I may have to research this a bit more then I already have.

I haven't tried it out just yet... I was a bit busy baking bread and running around doing errands. I promise to update when I get the chance!

Any snags on your sewing projects?

Refashioned Bowed Dress and English Breakfast Tea


This dress is one of my favorite dresses. I bought this dress at a thrift store and the completely redesigned it, almost, two years ago. I have a before and after post here.

I like to pull this dress out in the winter sometimes just because I love it so much. I normally pair it with tights at heels but I thought I would mix it up with some boots. Especially since it's been about 35 degrees out this week. Yes, it's as awful as it sounds. Luckily the sun is out and I have my favorite crocheted headband that my cousin makes. (Etsy shop here and previous post here) I pushed the wings under and pinned them to my hair so it's a smaller bow. I love how versatile it is.

Does anyone else pull their favorite dresses out for the winter?
