Design Launch + Apron Giveaway {Giveaway Ended}

Notice anything different?

Forget the little trim or subtle highlights that will invariably escape your boyfriend’s notice—we are talking full-on, reality-TV makeover!

The Law Student’s Wife has a whole new do!

I couldn’t be happier with the site’s revamped look and to celebrate, I am hosting my first ever GIVEAWAY!

Connect to your inner freebie-loving student folks: we’re talking FREE STUFF! Enter for a chance to complete some holiday shopping—be it for yourself or others—from the comfort of your couch.

First, an immense thank you to Carolyn Miller, the creative force behind my blog’s new look. Carolyn designed an incorporated every graphic you see, handled numerous revisions, and (on top of being unbelievably talented and professional) is an absolute doll. To anyone on the prowl for a graphic designer, do yourself a favor and check her out. Carolyn can be contacted for a range of design requests here.

OK, onto the goodies.

Even when I fail to thicken a stubborn cream sauce, burn my pie crust edges, or spill powdered sugar e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e, I can take comfort in one, unshakable truth: I look good doing it.  Forget the make up and pearls. My secret to feeling flirty in the kitchen, dough-crusted sweatpants and all: my apron!

Whether you have guests arriving and want to look your best while cooking, or like me, you simply want a pinch of pizzazz while you’re standing over the stove, a cute apron is a snazzy way to add style to your kitchen. We spend hours cooking—why not look and feel fabulous doing it?

I am all aflutter for these unique, handmade aprons from the Etsy shop MitzieAprons4U.

Seriously, how cute is this? Sweeter than cherries.

  1. Hey Erin! I would choose THIS apron: http://www.etsy.com/listing/86902764/reversible-fun-and-flirty-pink-flower. I could use something cute to wear while studying for finals! P.S. – I just liked you on facebook as well!
    P.P.S – that pear dessert that I can’t pronounce – made it a couple weeks ago and it was DELICIOUS!

    • No matter how you pronounce it, clafoutis is a yummy choice indeed! I’m so glad you liked it Cary. Hearing about people liking/trying my recipes always makes my day!

  2. I love this one and can’t wait to win ittttttttt;) http://www.etsy.com/listing/114611543/classy-provence-bordeaux-wine-apron

  3. p.s. I liked you on facebook too, but only because there wasn’t a ‘love’ button.

  4. p.p.s. I just subscribed to this website also.

  5. p.p.p.s. I really should have read all the entry steps at once to avoid all these posts. oops!

  6. Hey Erin! The new site looks great! Can’t wait to see what other delicious recipes you’ve got in the works! I also email subscribed and liked the facebook page.

    If I were to get an apron, I would choose this one, but it’s difficult as they’re all so cute!

    The new header looks fab – congrats! And if I were lucky enough to win your giveaway, I’d love the Christmas holiday half apron – it’s darling and would be just perfect for all the holiday baking I’ve got planned!

  8. I make really good plans all the time to cook/bake what you post… and they inevitably fall through. Maybe with the classy apron below, my plans can become a reality…. :-)

    You are the greatest!

  9. I always make great plans to cook/bake what you post… and then I don’t. Maybe with this apron, I’ll stop making excuses and start making PIE.

    Cheesy. Sorry I’m not sorry.

  39. LOVE the new look!!!!! :-) the domestic diva apron with cherries is so fun!!!!

  40. Enjoy the fantastic feedback and apron favorites your followers are sharing. My motto is “Remember aprons are not just for cooking!”

  41. Look at your pretty new site!!! LOVE it, lady!

  42. Well, Ms. Erin (yeah, I know you’re a Mrs.) … it’s not easy to decide. I do not think I have EVER seen a more attractive looking apron than the Red Polka Dot Halter Style Apron (http://www.etsy.com/listing/112713477/red-polka-dot-halter-style-apron). BUT, the Blue Denim with Tiny Cherries Utility Apron (http://www.etsy.com/listing/107761267/blue-denim-with-tiny-cherries-utility) would be so handy that it might win out.

    What I am REALLY hoping is that I win and Mitzie will make me a halter style apron in a dark colored fabric (you know how messy I am) with the 4 utility pockets … that fits someone as tall as I am :) Mitzie, if you read this, let Erin know that you’re up to the challenge, so that she picks me as the winner!

  43. 4 of 5…..I RT’d your giveaway tweet from my personal account.

  45. Hi Erin.

    I love your blog! I got into the slightly strange/amazing niche of foodie blog/lit novels a few years ago (‘A Homemade Life’, ‘Lunch in Paris’, ‘Cooking for Mr. Latte’…) and it is exciting to see a new talent take off. I hope you’re quite successful!

    Great idea with the giveaway/promo too!

  46. I also Tweeted…

  47. Liked on Facebook too. Good luck with your venture!

  48. Liked on Facebook and Twitter too! Good luck!

  49. I would love to win the Classy Wine Apron!It would perfectly compliment the glass of wine I have in my hand while baking :)

  50. andddd 5 of 5…you’re all up in my inbox! =) have a great weekend!

  52. Just tweeted about the lovely cherry apron! Great giveaway :).

  53. And I followed @lawstudentswife on twitter! Can’t wait to try some of your recipes!

  56. What made you deside to revamp? Was it tough? I would love to do it but am afraid it will be too much work. These aprons are so cute! Awesome idea for your first giveaway!!!

    • Hi Jennifer!
      I can’t lie–it was A TON of work, but so worth it! I wanted a design that was more reflective of my personality, cooking, and style. I love the way it turned out and would put in the time all over again. If you have the drive, I say go for it. Glad you like the aprons! Aren’t they fabulous?

  57. You mean I can’t love all of them equally? After intense contemplation, I think this one is my favorite: http://www.etsy.com/listing/116757636/polka-dot-apron … navy blue and polka dots just scream Boston! (It was a close contest between that one and the adorable one with the cherries!)

  59. I also love this blue polka dot number: http://www.etsy.com/listing/116757636/polka-dot-apron (maybe it’s a Boston thing?) A fantastic new look to your site, congratulations!

    • Thanks so much Lindsay! And that apron is absolutely adorable. Maybe it’s the classic look with a little twist that makes it Boston perfect?

  60. Red Polka Dot Halter Style :)

    Love the new look!
