Doing Some Exciting Things

So a few have you have noticed some changes that I’ve been making around the ol’ chocolate medals.

I have loved my little internet home here since the day I started it, and am always trying to improve what I’m doing here.  That includes the quality of what I’m sharing with you all first and foremost.  I am always open to hearing input from you all about what you like/don’t like, so please continue to reach out! { }

With that said — I’ve also been making sun visual and just FUN overall changes to my social media obsession!

New Banner


First off:  The new banner.  I recently fell in love with PicMonkey. . . if you are a blogger and haven’t ventured over to, you need to.  It will CHANGE YOUR LIFE BLOG.

You may have noticed the quality and coloration of my food pictures have changed.


That is all PicMonkey and their awesome features.  Seriously check ’em out.


This is probably the change I am most excited about.  I’ve been on pinterest (follow me) for quite some time now, but really never understood it or took full advantage of it.

It was actually during my amazing honeymoon that I began to find real inspiration and DRAW towards pinterest.

Right after the trip, I started posting much more regularly.  Creating new pages for recipe inspirations, work out ideas, weekly inspirational quotes and even just posts that made me laugh.

I found myself truly inspired every time I clicked on these different links, and anxious to share them with all of you.  Unfortunately, my pinterest has actually been the page with the least love.

But I’m here to change that.  I actually recently created a board where I am sharing my more popular posts regularly.  Recipes, workouts, inspirational posts, any of them.  I’m passionate about this stuff and just LOVE sharing it with you all!

To be straight forward and honest with you all — I am excited and passionate about social media and my own little personal footprint here with Chocolate Medals.   I love the conversations we all have through my comments here, through all of the other social medias like Instagramtwitter , facebook & pinterest.

What I’d love from you all right now is to connect with each other, through all social medias, but especially pinterestbecause I am truly finding my most recent passion via that network.  So follow me, or request me to follow you!  I’d LOVE to build up the page’s followers to 100 — seems like a good round number.  And if that happens I am planning a baking giveaway — so can we make that happen friends? 

Let me know, either here in the comments, email or just a message that we are linked via Pinterest! And if you don’t have a pinterest, I highly recommend you join, NOW! 🙂

  1. I’m so with you on increasing one’s social media presence, as you probably guessed from my recent flurry of tweets. 🙂 I will have to dig up my old Pinterest log-in info and find and follow you!

  2. Haha I’m the same way with Pinterest. She’s my Cinderella, forgotten but will eventually have her fairy godmother (aka me) who will turn everything around. Once I have time… LOVE PicMonkey!! I use it all the time, even for work sometimes!
