Getting back into the swing of things!

So some of my regular readers will have noticed I have been absent for a few months now, and I just wanted to put out a quick post as to why.
Being a single parent I find I'm extremely busy, I do everything myself and I have only been away from my daughter once in 11 months (last month to do the dreaded Christmas shopping!) I like spending quality time with my daughter throughout the day and the only time I have "me time" is when she's asleep - which, at the moment, has been rarely ha ha! So I don't have as much time to blog as I did before.
Another issue was I just couldn't bring myself to write, it started becoming a bit of a chore in the past few weeks/month and I felt like every time I sat down to write, I'd find something else I'd rather do. I'd lost that love for writing and I didn't feel as passionate as I once had about blogging or the things I was posting about. I was having doubts about myself, feeling I wasn't good at any of this, I know I'm not an expert at fashion or beauty of any sort but I felt like I was comparing myself to others and thinking 'you're not good enough.'
My anxiety recently has started creeping back and I felt like I needed that time away to try to sort myself and my emotions out, however I'm slowly getting there. 

Having had a break away, I think I'm finally ready to get back to my first love, writing. As some of you may know my daughter went through a tough start in her life and it raised quite a few things up in terms of opinions, so I'd love to not only write about beauty but also topical subjects, getting back to my roots really. 

I hope I still have some of my loyal readers and I'd love to speak to some new ones but also make a few friends through blogging, please feel free to comment your blog in the comments, I'd love to have a read!
