Hello blog friends,
I know it has been a while but I swear I have good reason. So, I guess the best place to begin would be to say that over the holidays my gorgeous mother lost her battle with cancer and passed away. She was 64 years old, which is young, yes, but she had fought this horrible disease for about 17 years on and off. I consider her fortunate to have dealt with this for so long and surviving well past her time. I miss her every day and not a day goes by that I do not think of her. I did write an in depth post about her fight with cancer which I will link here. So, that being said, I have been working hard at trying to tie up all the loose ends that Mama G left behind and to say it hasn't been stressful would be a lie. As someone who deals with stress and anxiety, this is a whole load that I never thought I could handle.
Now that I have given you all my sob story, let's talk about the future of this blog. I have to be honest in saying that my heart has not been in it lately but I really want that to change. I would like to start off small and not bite off more than I can chew. I am considering a once a week post. I have not decided on a day just yet but I will post an update once I figure it all out. I have some ideas which include posts about mental illness (depression, anxiety), anti-stress tips and tricks and ofcourse, beauty and lifestyle. I also got approved for my first ever Voxbox from Influester which I will be reviewing here. I have also been trying a few new products which I really want to share my thoughts on. I also want to make the blog more visually pleasing so I need to dig out the camera and blow off the dust. I also want to open this up to you guys too. Is there anything you want to see here? Anything you want me to discuss or review? Please feel free to email me or leave a comment below letting me know.
Thank you all for reading and look forward to a great year :)
