Hello lovelies, It’s been so long since i wrote a post, a month to be exact I can hardly believe it myself, so please bear with me as I’m working on catching up!
I haven’t deliberately stayed away, I promise. Life just took over and I’m sure you know how that story goes, between having 5am call times/7 days a week, working 16 hour days and still finding the time to be a mommy whilst holding onto to my sanity, something had to give. Saying that though, I have had a pretty amazing couple of months and I have definitely learned a lot about myself and making my dreams a reality, I can’t wait to share my news with you in due time.
So the blogging may have taken a backseat momentarily, but I am back and I’m here to stay baby!!! I may have also stalled at day 28 of the 30 day blogging challenge, but I’ve decided not to beat myself up about that and still fully intend to cross the finish line with my head held high. Speaking of the blogging challenge, look out for my next blog post where I’ll share my experience on the challenge and how I got on.
Whilst I was away from the blogging world I realised that if I really want to take this seriously, I’m going to have to make some changes. First up…PLANNING! I have a ton of posts I want to share with you, but I’ve noticed that I tend to get so bogged down by other commitments I end up feeling overwhelmed and nothing gets done. I’ve gone and made myself a little planner, the intention is to blog at least 3x a week, which for me seems doable. Next thing I really want to do is to CONNECT and COLLABORATE. It can feel so lonely in this virtual world of ours, with nothing but me and my laptop, usually in my bed after the lil dude has been put to sleep. To be honest if it wasn’t for the awesome support from everyone in the blogging challenge group, I probably wouldn’t have made it this far. I am a social creature by nature and there’s nothing I love more than connecting with likeminded people, sharing ideas and supporting each other. My intention is to make more of an effort to connect with other bloggers and step out of my comfort zone. I have so much to learn and I’m totally ready and willing to take things up a notch or two.
I also want to make time to LIVE! I am a little ocd sometimes, especially when i’m in work mode, so much so that I miss out on so many experiences. Getting my priorities straight, finding a happy balance between work, play and family is my idea of bliss.
Now that I have set my intentions, you have my full permission to hold me accountable and call me out if I start slacking again, but for now I think its time I signed off and got on with some writing.
Until next time, stay blessed and Love the life you’re living! xoxo
Ps. Are we connected on social media? I am very active on twitter, Facebook and Instagram, lets connect, I’d love to learn more about you. Also check me out in the Ultimate list of lifestyle bloggers 2018 resource.
Life does sometimes get in the way when you’re a blogger, especially as we are generally working from home. Nothing to beat yourself up about – welcome back.x

Life does indeed get in the way of our creative pursuits sometimes, but blogging is just about expression and creativity, so whenever you get the time just enjoy it! 🙂
