Our Exciting News – I’m Pregnant!

Our Exciting News – I’m Pregnant!
Hey Family!

I can’t believe I’m finally sitting in front of my laptop and saying this but, I’m back!

It blows my mind to think that it’s been 9 months since I last updated the blog! I guess if you’re an avid social media user like myself, and have been following me there, it probably hasn’t felt like that long, but for my die-hard blog readers I definitely deserve to cover my face in shame.

Hopefully however, whilst you may agree that I’ve been naughty and MIA, you’ll also have caught on to the title of this post and our exciting news… I’m Pregnant!!!

Am I forgiven now?!

Whilst my pregnancy doesn’t account for my entire absence – it definitely does hold some responsibility for 6 out of the 9 months I’ve been away. Let’s just say morning sickness all day nausea decided to take me on the ride of my life, and completely zapped me of every bit of energy that I had for the first trimester. And for the remainder of my time away, I’ve simply struggled to balance pregnancy, my 9-5, social media, and the blog, so decided to start by reviving one platform at a time.

As I mentioned in my Pregnancy Announcement video on YouTube, I do plan on sharing baby related content on my social platforms – but I’ll also continue to share on all of the other topics that I love and was sharing before e.g. achieving your goals, hair care, homemaking etc.

So whilst I get my life together and schedule my next couple of blog posts (gosh I love Trello!) – I’ll leave you with my comeback video and the full scoop on my first trimester experience.

Thank you for being so patient with me and sticking around for this new journey, I’m truly grateful.

Yours with love,

Fi

My Natural Hair straightening routine – Wash day start to finish!

My Natural Hair straightening routine – Wash day start to finish!

Before I jump into today’s post, let me start off by doing things properly, and wishing you all a very Happy New Year! I know that we are well into the month of January, but I’m a huge believer in ‘better late than never’, so I hope you have a wonderful and joy filled year ahead, and I look forward to sharing all of the things I have in store for 2018!

If you aren’t subscribed to my YouTube channel, you may not have caught my first video of the year, where I share my first ever Natural Hair straightening routine. I aim to straighten my hair at the start of every New Year, so that I can do two things:

1) Give myself a fresh trim
2) Do a length check

I’ve got to say, following the hair issues I experienced last year [update coming very soon!], I was surprised to see how much progress my hair has made in terms of length. I was so focused on the health of my hair, length was the last thing on my mind. I guess it goes to show your hair will grow if you take proper care of it.

So without further ado, here goes my Natural Hair straightening routine [+ products used listed below]:

Weekly Catch-Up

Why hello there new series! In celebration of the fact that I have now started weekly vlogging, I thought what better than to also do a weekly check-in on the blog, where I can share what I’ve been getting up to, and things that have helped me get through the week in one piece! I also know that some of you aren’t on Instagram, so I’ll also be sharing some of my Instagram posts from the week, and the stories behind them.
