I haven’t written a personal post like this for quite some time now, between my Simply Lippy challenge and other things going on, general blogging has had to take a bit of a back seat over the past few months.
Apart from working full time and trying to fit in blogging in the evenings after work and over my weekends, for the past few months I’ve had something else going on – something that’s kept me, distracted let’s say.
I’ve been thinking about whether or not to share this online with the world, and all you lovely readers, as I’ve been a bit nervous about putting it ‘out there’. But you may have noticed that on Sunday I posted my first non-Simply Lippy related post in a long time. Until Sunday, I hadn’t done a beauty review post since back in May and I wanted to tell you all why.
The reason I’ve been a little MIA is because… Dave and I are expecting a new little addition to the family! That’s right, I’m pregnant. Eeek!
We are very excited but it’s been a tough few months of sickness and tiredness as many of you Mum’s and pregnant ladies will know all about. So needless to say, it’s been hard trying to keep up with my lipstick challenge, let alone doing any other blogging for the past while.
I’ve somehow managed to keep Simply Lippy going, believe me there have been days where I’ve wanted to pack it all in while my head was stuck over the toilet bowl! But in the end, I knew I’d regret it if I didn’t power through and now, I am at Day 248. I don’t know how I got here, but I did, and I’m so glad I did.
My regular followers may have noticed that my posts have been a day or two late here and there because really, I just haven’t been able to write some days – and my bed has been a lot more appealing! But, I kept it up, every day of this year so far, I’ve worn a different lipstick, photographed it and shared the journey with you all.
I’m currently 17 weeks pregnant and thankfully the dreaded sickness is starting to pass and I’m beginning to feel more like myself again. Now that I’m getting back to normal, I’m very excited to get back to my blogging especially as I have so many beautiful products that I’ve been using that I’ve dying to tell you all about.
With so much going on, I don’t know that I’ll have as much time for social media as well as writing, but I’m going to give it all my best and hope that you’ll all join me on this new adventure I’m going on. No doubt there will be lots of pregnancy related beauty posts coming too, mostly because my skin has been a mess for the last few months, and that alone has taken some adjusting too.
Thanks for sticking with me, I hope you’ve been enjoying my lipstick challenge, and I promise to have lots more beauty blog posts coming again soon.
