GIVEAWAY: Win a WordPress Theme from Restored 316

danielle moss website-9

I started blogging on the blogger platform back in 2007, taught myself a little code and photoshop, and opened up my first small business as a blog designer. As a self-taught designer, I knew enough to make blogger work and always planned on learning WordPress, but made a career change after launching The Everygirl and never got around to it. About a year ago, I made the switch from blogger to Squarespace and a few months ago (thanks to my friend Kelly), migrated everything over to WordPress.

At first, I bought a theme I was pretty happy with, installed it myself, and made a few tweaks to the code and design. Ultimately, it wasn’t what I was looking for. So I bought another one and my site looked pretty good but it still wasn’t right. And then I came across Restored 316, a shop I remember seeing back in the day when there were very few blog designers around. Lauren’s WordPress themes are beautiful, budget-friendly, and the best part is that she offers affordable options to help customize the templates for you.

I know a little code, but after installing my site, realized the changes I wanted to make were beyond what I know how to do on my own. So Lauren and I worked together to make the Dazzling theme everything I envisioned it to be. It has to be said–I was the most annoying client ever. Having experience in Photoshop, I took it upon myself to screen shot my site and then edit it to show her exactly what I wanted it to look like. And she did not disappoint.

Let’s talk about why it’s so great. First, there’s the sleek navigation (where my photography and home tours are easy to find!) and slider. Scroll down, and you’ll see some of my favorite items that you can now easily shop right from my home page. One of my favorite features is the ability to see products below any posts with a rewardStyle slider in them.

    Shoot, I totally missed this. I am going to keep her in mind for later, her designs are lovely! I would be torn between the Dazzling, Market, and Glam themes.

    About two weeks ago I started to really started to rethink my brand and design. With a ton of research I decided I was going to go buy the genesis framework. I did some looking in the themes and came across Glam. I absolutely loved it! Here I am 2 weeks later, still thinking about that theme. As I was looking through the Live Demo I found the Instagram feed at the bottom promoting this! I am so so happy I did! After looking more through Restored 316's website I decided I would love to utilize the Market theme! It is feminine, natural and flows with my brand and the direction I am taking my blog. My blog will be 1 in October and is need of a new look. I have been working hard in the past year to build relationships and learn as much as I can about this blogging life and I'm ready to take it to the next level! This would be an amazing opportunity!

    I've been feeling so uninspired lately that I've decided to FINALLY get a start on my own blog. (You were a huge inspiration, no lie!) This giveaway couldn't have come at a better time. I would 100%choose the Dazzling theme as well. It's clean, simple, easy to navigate, and really beautiful. x
  • Sarah

    August 30, 2016 at 12:48 pm
    I think I'd choose the dazzling theme. So many great options!
  • Chervelle

    August 30, 2016 at 12:37 pm
    Her themes are so well designed! I've been working on my own sites for years and haven't been fully satisfied. I'm currently on Squarespace, but if I can make the switch to Lauren's designs, I know things would change for the better. I would choose the Savory theme. I like the sleek, minimal and magazine style.
  • Caitlin

    August 30, 2016 at 12:32 pm
    I would choose the Market theme to start my wellness and personal development blog. @cczablotney
  • Pia Crook

    August 30, 2016 at 11:27 am
    So hard to choose but I think Market is my final answer. Or maybe simply charming? ???? They're all so cool! Insta: @HiddenCharmHome email is in the comment thingie- or Pia @ Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway! And of course to Lindsey for the giveaway!

    I have been eyeing Restored 316 Designs for a while now to apply to my photography business and take it to the next level, but as a new college student trying to launch her business AND get a degree, I've been waiting for "the right time". Maybe that time is now! If I won, I'd choose either the Simply Charming or Darling theme! (or any of them, they're all so beautiful!)
  • Taylor

    August 30, 2016 at 10:26 am
    I would love to win! I would pick the Darling theme! My blog is only a month old, but it is growing! The only thing holding me back is the site design and branding. I too bought a theme thinking it was going to be great, only to be disappointed. Restored 316 themes are beautiful AND functional! I know I need one of these themes so my site will look professional and inviting.

    I'm currently running a Restored 316 theme on my blog, but it's one of the older ones that hasn't been updated in a few years.....and a new design would be great! Loving market theme and all the help to get it looking perfect.
  • Monica

    August 30, 2016 at 4:24 am
    Awesome, love the Restored 316 designs!!!! GLAM would be my theme of choice. I launched my blog in January, it is a happiness project and I am at that point where the design could really use some updates and fine-tuning. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!!

    That's such a great giveaway!! I've always loved the themes from Restored 316 so much - so thank you for a chance to win a theme and the sparkle and shine package. If I would win I'd choose "Dazzling" cause I fell in love with the theme, the moment I saw it. My IG: @aclassymess

    While I am VERY excited about the contest, I'm happy to have learned a lot from the Choosing the Right Theme Guide on the Restored 316 Website! The questions in the "Plan" section assisted me with some market research this weekend that I was already doing for my new blog . Double Score!! I debated all weekend, and I think the Divine theme would work best! I love the sliders and the sticky posts toward the top of the screen. Perfect for displaying some pretty cool photographic content I can't wait to display! May the best theme win! ;) Instagram Handle: @jae.mcgee

    Bloom is delightfully feminine and elegant and I love how image-oriented it is. Starting my freelance writing/editing/photography business with this template would be divine.

The category index is beautifully organized, and again, I appreciate how everything is so image-focused. @laurenbrendel
