I am not sure whether you guys have realized it, but my web domain is back to Blogspot. *points upwards*
It was a horrible surprise when I opened my blog a few days ago, and found that my blog (at my own domain: www.revel-in-me.com) no longer exists, and upon some furious clicking, I realized my domain has expired.
I have been having some trouble with Google to renew my domain because I changed my credit card, and the original billing details with Google were no longer valid. But I thought it was all resolved! I even have an email from Google Wallet to say that the my billing details are settled.
Alas, as Murphy's Law goes, IT DIDN'T. And my domain was gone, just like that. My immediate, and ultimate worry is that all my blog information (i.e. my old blog entries) is gone. That would be akin to someone burning my diaries into ashes! Luckily my web developer reassured me that all my information is hosted on Blogger, and therefore is safe. I quickly reverted my blog back to Blogspot, which is why if you guys have been going into www.revel-in-me.blogspot.com (instead of www.revel-in-me.com), you would have access to my blog. The ironic thing is that Google only has customer support for customers on the Business Edition of Google App, and as I am on a Standard edition, I basically had no one to go to. I emailed Godaddy (my domain registrar), and there were some dingdong-ings of emails, but finally yesterday, they came back with the worst news I could possibly hear (with regards to my blog, that is)--my domain is registered by someone else.
That's right, people, if you go to www.revel-in-me.com now, you will find some funky Japanese site instead (it appears to be some kind of medical site, based on the few Chinese characters that I recognize). Ugh. Why would they even want a frivalous URL like Revel in Me!!??
Other than the big blow that my blog is basically kicked out of its "home", my hits have also taken a big hit as well (no pun intended). I guess everyone is still heading to www.revel-in-me.com? My site visits is at an all-time low. In fact, the last time I've seen these numbers were in the first few months of me blogging. T____T
It's quite demotivating, because I've spent the past 6 years or so building a following/ readership, and now it's kind of like back to square one. Sigh. I am trying not to harp on it though, what's done is done, and the only thing I can do now is to work hard and blog hard, and hopefully the numbers will rise again.
And if they don't, it just means I am a lousy blogger wtf.
But in the meantime, I can do with all the help I can get! If you have linked me, please make sure it's linked to www.revel-in-me.blogspot.com k! :) Thank you in advance, and THANK YOU SO SO MUCH for still sticking around. :')
Enough about the depressing stuff, on to some outfit shots!
I've reiterated many times that I'm kinda like a collector of white blouses, so guys, meet my new favorite! The top is so airy and light, and I love the slanted hem; that thing does some amazing things with a light breeze. I've worn it 3 times in a week (including on my birthday), so you can easily tell how much I am in love it with! :P
Going for a very neutral palette.
Very simple accessories as well! Wearing a pony-hair leopard print chainlink bracelet to match the leopard print shorts.
Also, that's my new watch! A birthday present to myself. :D I've been wanting an oversized gold watch for some time already, and decided to take the plunge to get a Michael Kors one (there are a lot of amazing photos of his watches all over Tumblr and blogs). I was planning to get it during my recent trip in Korea because there is duty free, unfortunately, all the designs didn't look good on my. :( The boyfriend persuaded me to give it up and just keep looking, and just when I have given up, I saw THIS watch from DKNY! It was the perfect size (the MK ones mostly looked too big on me), the perfect shade of gold, and I love the mother-of-pearl face. Best part is, it was half the price of what I budgeted for a MK watch! SO HAPPY!
