DO YOU LOVE IT?!?
Tell me you love it!!! It’s so sparkly, how can you not! I’ve finally shifted domain. It’s about time ♥ Oh and just so you know, I haven’t finished labeling my posts and changing the “About me” and “Fav Photos / Posts” sections yet but I’ll get around to doing it ASAP!
Also the comments and my sidebar links may not work but in the mean time you can gush to me or talk to me at http://www.formspring.me/shiberty lol.
I absolutely ADORE my blog design, proudly done by Kai Yi @ FifthStorey.com, a very talented freelance web designer!
I’m so fortunate to have met her through a blog reader / cupcake customer, who then indirectly introduced me to Kai Yi and voila! I had a web designer sponsor. Can’t even believe my luck.
I was ridiculously picky right down to the nitty gritty details, like exactly what font she should use for my banner, what color tone, what text size for my sidebar, color scheme everything. But yet somehow she managed to fulfill all my demands and adding her own unique flair to the design, thus bringing my fantasy layout to life! She deserves so much credit for that. For creating a gorgeous design that’s her own work, yet still managing to make it suit me so much.
Thank you soooo much Kai Yi. You’ve done an amazing job!!!
She’s been super patient with me all this while, complying to my ten thousand requests, I think she must have sent me at least 15 drafts lol (which is a lot!!!) I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a trustworthy creative person to come up with an original, professional & appropriate design for you! You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org – She does commercial sites too!
So, if you’re wondering what inspired this blog design….
It’s the song Enchanted, by Taylor Swift.
I fell in love with it after closely listening to the lyrics. I was… enchanted.
“This night is sparkling, don’t you let it go / I’m wonderstruck, blushing all the way home / I’ll spend forever wondering if you knew / I was enchanted to meet you.”
Lyrics so honest and real, anyone can relate to.
♥ the song, ♥ the message and the special warm fuzziness I get when I listen to it. It’s about falling in love, BEING in love, and being enchanted with something or someone. It’s a wonderful feeling that fills you up inside. It makes me think of laying under the stars with your soul mate, frolicking around dandelion fields with your summer love and even staring in awe of the aurora borealis in the night sky. (which is a dream of mine!)
I immediately thought… WOW. I’d love to have this somehow implemented in my new design!!! I needed a big change, and this was perfect. Hopefully this will remind me to always be enchanted by life itself, and to share what I love about it with you guys.
Well, obviously I don’t expect y’all to miraculously start falling in love with ME (ehehe), but I hope the layout successfully depicts a feeling of surreal happiness, or at the very least, the nostalgia of being in love and being enchanted.
Thank you to my lovely readers for sticking by me, through my ups and downs, my dramatic and boring days, my terrible blog skins and lengthy dodgy URLs…
This is a new chapter in my blogging life and I’m so happy to share it with you! I feel so grown up now. Imma cry :’) Special shout out to everyone who joined me in Live Chat #8 tonight, thanks for your encouragement and support when things got a little dramatic and out of hand nearing the launch time.. I love you guys SO much!!!
You were really good to me while you lasted. Brought me quite a lot of attention, drama and new experiences actually.
But here’s to change, and bigger, better things.
