Woah Mama. There’s a baby in mah belly. This should explain why I’ve gone AWOL.
The main problem is that I’m not one of those glamorous pregnant types. Especially, not in the beginning. Unfortunately I spent most of the last few months hugging the toilet bowl. Smells and beauty items I used to love made me want to puke. Also, my skin has became both dry and oily so the though of taking selfies made me want to hide under a rock forever, or hide my iPhone under a rock anyway.
So I decided to take some time out. And I’m glad I did. I didn’t want to write crap blog posts when my heart wasn’t it. Funnily enough, the Saturday just passed I had an overwhelming urge to rediscover my beauty love. I painted my nails and whacked on a hair mask. I wrote some draft blog posts and had fun doing it. Hopefully this means my love for this blog has well and truly been resparked.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to turn this blog into a big whinging platform. The ironic part of early pregnancy is that even though I’ve felt (and looked) sooo crappy, I am blissfully happy. I’m even more happy now my energy is returning and I don’t feel the need to run to the bathroom as much.
So while I might not get around to blogging as frequently I’ll be writing more than I have the last few months.
I want to give a big shout out and thanks to Andrea Reitano. She’s a communications student at UTS who did a brilliant job at holding the fort for me while I was down. You can follow her on Twitter.
In the meantime I look forward to talking cruelty-free beauty with y’all. Xo
