Good news, bad news and the death of The Forum.

ARGH!! This was my face today (minus the boxing-glove border) when I found out that A Model Recommends had crashed. Unfortunately, there’s a possibility that it had something to do with the set-up of The Forum and so The Forum had to be put to death. I am going to try my extreme hardest to resurrect it in a different form, but I do hope you understand that I can’t have anything going on that presents a potential risk to the site. There’s just too much work that goes into it every day for it not to run smoothly and properly!

A Model Recommends receives in excess of 20,000 pageviews a day now (sometimes lots more) and I think that this also may have had something to do with the crash, so I will be taking every step to ensure that this doesn’t happen again – my apologies to anyone who couldn’t access the site for some of today. Please keep hold of your login information for The Forum – when it’s reinstated in its new body, you’ll be able to log straight back in.

I’m now going to go and pour myself a HUGE glass of red wine. I almost had about three heart-attacks today and have spent six hours straight staring at this screen! Normal service will be resumed tomorrow – and there’s a new video!

But have tried of course Yankee candles (yum yum), Jo Malone (Sooo lovely and a treat I only buy on a rare occasion) and Deelights (they are a very good but not as good as YC) but do you realise you now have me wanting to try the Liz Earle one now! Tut tut tut Ruth how can you do this to me???!!! Lol xxxx

    What about doing a recent comments section? (in relation to your published articles/videos) That way people will know what is popular and being discussed at the moment.

    Love the website, I could take or leave the forum section. What I like is the articles and reading all the comments of your readers.

    Take your glass of wine and go to your happy place (because stress is very bad for the skin, well that and sugar I’m told) and hopefully all will get sorted.

      That’s a good idea actually! Maybe I will. I found the forum hard to navigate but it can’t be reinstated how it was anyhow, it just wasn’t workable. Too many issues! I’ll find an answer… x

    A good glass of wine is always good along with a lovely relaxing candle (like the Yankee Candle i’m burning right now! Aaahhhhh it relaxes me soooo much! I am a candle freak (as well as beauty freak as you already know! Lol) and have candles all over my house and when i get home from work straight away one is lit! Lol)
    All I can say Ruth is it just shows shows how popular you are and take comfort from that hun!
    I love your site and have from the start I can’t even remember how long I have been a member it’s been quite a while but only seems like last week! Boy time is flying by! Lol! You do a stellar job hun good on you xxx

      @Natasha thank you for your daily essay! I’m going to make a post out of your comments one day and create a little story! I didn’t know that you were a candle freak! I must try harder to include more. Although there have been a few popping up on Keep Calm and Shop! My fave is the tiny Liz Earle one in the green box. Mmm. Need more of them. x

    Sorry to hear your forum went awol, I know how chuffed you’ve been about setting it up and stuff. Fingers crossed the resurrected version is more secure and protected from bad cyberspace things.. x x
