Life Update

Hi everyone!!

This is my first proper blog post in 24 crazy is that?? So you're probably wondering where I was. Well it all started with my little man being unwell and spending a few days in hospital. He is perfectly fine now and it wasn't anything to serious but it drained me emotionally and physically. I ended up being really sick myself. I had an awful tummy bug and my muscles just ached all over my body.

I will be totally honest and hold my hands up and admit that for those few days I completely lost my blogging mojo. I was so weak and tired, my hair looked like shit, my skin went cray cray and I just wasn't able. Being a mammy, blogging and working full time is no joke. 99% of the time I am on the ball and I thrive on being busy but I needed some time to recover, unwind and relax.

When I began feeling better I wasn't even sure what to do with myself. I felt I had so much to do I didn't even know where to start. I am one of those women who just has to be doing something although I think most mammys are. I became obsessed with home decor and gardening which I have never really had an interest in before which was so random.

What really picked me back up was the love and messages from my followers. So many of you noticed the decrease in my online activity and were really concerned about my well being...and Jake's which was so cute. I could have forced myself to post to my social media websites and website. I could have fired up random blog posts but that wouldn't be me and definetely isn't what Lipstick And Louboutins is about. I want my personality to shine through my blog. I want you all to feel like you know me and to always make you guys feel welcome on my blog. Maybe that is the mammy in me, I'm not sure but I feel like I know you guys. I often see the same names pop up over and over again. I see every like, comment and message wheter they be the good, bad or indifferent and I LOVE interacting with my followers.

If you are wondering why I am sharing all this with you I suppose it is because I feel like I owe you a little update on what has been going and an apology of sorts for being absent. If you find yourself going through a similar slump don't worry, all of a sudden you will feel amazing again. My advice would be to talk!! Talk to a family member or a friend. If you don't feel like talking then ignore the world and have some you time. Put on some tan, go get a manicure or a blowdry, go for a walk, spend two days under a duvet eating crap and watching Netflix or do whatever it is that will make you happy again. Ride it out and then give life hell!!

To finish on a positive note I want to give you all a little update on my gorgeous son, Jake. So on the 15th of July Jake will be nine months old. How crazy is that?? I feel like it was only last week I was uploading my maternity fashion and bump photos. He has started to crawl and has been saying dada for weeks now. Typical!! Hopefully mama will be next!! He has five teeth now which is quite a lot for his age I'm being told but all babas are different. So far he is pretty much unphased by the dreaded teething thank God!!!

Jake is the love of my life. I could never get bored of playing with him, looking after him or loving him. When I go to bed at night nothing is more relaxing than cuddling up to Josh and falling asleep looking at and listening to Jake sleeping and snoring. I love my little family so much!!

To sum up I AM BACK and ready to take on the world. Thank you all for being so amazing and for taking the time to read my thoughts and follow my blog.
