New blog layout!

Guys, I've really exciting news to announce today!
(and no it's not an engagement -___-)


One of the things that I really want to get done this year is a new blog layout (as declared in this post). Like, I totally get it if you guys think I am the girl who cries wolf wtf 'cause I've been talking about it for years (at least 3 years -_-). But despite numerous announcements that I'll get a new one up, I never did get anything done. *droops head down*

But this year, this year is all about doing things, executing things, making things happen! (Ya ya, I know at this point you are thinking, what is this girl rambling on about, I am still on the SAME OLD BLOG LAYOUT wtf)


So I present to you the super awesome work of my web designer! T____T


She gave me a couple of layouts to choose from, and I think these two are my favorites:


Option 1.



Option 2.




What do you think? I love them both and I can't decide! I think I kind of like the second one better... But Teeny doesn't like it 'cause she said what if my style changes (then the pictures on the header will not be relevant anymore)-- to which I told her I can then update the pictures! My web designer is awesome like that. :P

But then again, when I think about it, I really like the first option too. #typical woman T_T I like how there is a 3rd minor color (i.e. red) amidst the black and white layout (the only request I listed to the web designer), so there's an interesting dimension. And of course, the 'i' is really pretty WTF. *narcissistic*

But the boyfriend also told me that if I use the first layout, I cannot ever grow fat. If not my header will read 'Revel ON Me' WTFFF. -___________________-


**************************************************


My colleague and Teeny have given their votes to the first layout, and the 2nd layout has 2 votes as well (me and the boyfriend)-- Deadlock. T__T

And then I thought, you know what, who better to decide then YOU! You are the ones who will be facing the same layout for goodness knows how many years before I get off my butt to change it again wtf.

And this blog wouldn't be anything without you guys anyway. :')

So here it is, guys. Which blog layout do you like better? My web designer suggested merging the 2 layouts since there are different elements that I liked about both of them, so that's something consider as well. Any recommendations/ suggestions would be much appreciated too! Together we can make an awesome blog layout. :D

Get set, go! Cast your vote now. :)

IMO, banner from Option 1, but everything else from Option 2, except for the red when it comes to the dates. Ties in very nicely with the red pants you were wearing :D

2nd banner - I think the first one is a little too bland to fit your personality.

Kim L said...

I like the second one :)

Hey babe, going for Option 2. It's matured and sophisticated and in the long run, regardless how old you turn, it still suits! :)

Karmun said...

Option 1!!

Definitely the 1st one!!

xiang yun said...

I think option 1 makes the header looks more personalised but I prefer option 2 better because it makes the whole blog layout look polished and I feel that the emphasis on REVEL defines 'you' as a blogger because of your love of revelling in food, fashion, travel and ultimately, life. Hope that helps. :D

second option! :) the first option somehow has a serious feel about it :/ the second has pictures and i like that it has cute logo for facebook and twitter :)

breakingrumours said...

1st!!!

i vote for option 1!!=)

soullessmae said...

Overall,would prefer the 1st option as it gives a better creative outlook yet has a touch of simplicity in comparison to the 2nd.
Just a suggestion, probably you could have a fade out header to reveal your favourite/current style shots like in Option 2 since fashion delights you in everythin you do. :)

number 1 !!!

Anonymous said...

the second one, but probably can make the display picture change to the most updated pictures you have. so every time you open it'll be a new picture! <3

jaynellemoe said...

Option 1!
It's so clean and sharp!

rachel_apple said...

OPtion 1!

Anonymous said...

1st one without a doubt. It's fresh, current and it's more in a fashion manner, like you conquer the blog by using your figure as the "I".

1st

Lynnie said...

The first one is really special! The 2nd one seems real blah and normal :)

yy said...

the first one! visually more interesting to look at :)

i'm stephy..❤ said...

option 1:)

fourfeetnine said...

first one!

Anonymous said...

option 1 for me!

i think the tint of the shadow could be slightly lighter. would be nice if there's the alphabet "i" with you lying on it instead of you standing as "i" (or maybe it would be better if your figure could be of the same height), just afraid that people would read "revel n me" at one glance. lol. or maybe you could sit on the alphabet too! :D

Joshua said...

I'm voting for the second, only if:

1) You reduce the heading size (revel in me) and
2) Increase the "polaroid" image frame sizes!


Proportionally, at the moment the second one is a bit off IMHO.

The first looks well balanced wtf - graphic design "qi" wtf

misshazel said...

Agree with Joshua.

I vote for Option 1.

Anissa Sia said...

First one! =D

Thank you and a big big hug to all you guys for your comments! I read through every single one of them, and we are now working to incorporate some of the suggestions that you guys have suggested! <3

soullessmae: I like the idea of displaying my fave/current style shot! Can you elaborate more on the fade-out header? :)

Yan Ping said...

First one pls cousin !

You will remain as skinny always !

Asyiqin Yunos, said...

the first one!

soullessmae said...

Hi Hui Wen, what I meant was to have your header fade gradually to reveal a series of your daily style snap shots like a slide show. Another option if you wanna consider is to have a 'Daily/Fav Style Shot' on the side bar. Probably this makes it easier to upload your daily/fav outfit for the day/week.
Hope this helps! :)
