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.
