Happy 2018 y’all! I really hope that you guys had a great holiday if you were fortunate enough to have some time off. I had a mixed bag holiday, I managed to rest the first part and then it got super busy. We moved house at the end of the year and it was a wonderful and awful idea, wonderful in that we started off the year at our new place and awful in that moving in December is the worst thing that you can do! Trust me!
On the blog front I did some minor changes to the blog including a new logo 🙂 – I had this logo done in Sept/Oct 2017 but I chose to launch it for 2018. I plan to be a bit more consistent with my posts this year, last year did a number on me because motherhood but I am back and ready to rock and roll.
Thank you again for the support for my blog in 2017, it really means a lot! Here’s to growing my blog to greater heights in 2018!
The end of the year is upon us and as per usual I am taking a blog break to enjoy some time off with my family. On a personal level, my life changed by leaps and bounds: I became a mom, so for most of the year I have been trying to navigate my new role while also doing the things that I love. Even though I took a 3 month break and I haven’t published as much content as usual, I’ve had a great year in blogging and it’s all thanks to you guys! I’ll be giving the blog a face lift over the break so it might be off line for a few days – be sure to look out for a fresher looking blog in the new year.
I am hoping that you guys have a fabulous festive season with your loved ones, be sure to get some rest! I will catch up with you in 2018.
Today is my birthday, whoop whoop! As like last year, I haven’t celebrated my birthday month as thoroughly as I did in the past. This is the first birthday that I will spend as a mom, so it is very special in that way, I am looking forward to when my daughter is old enough to sing to me :). I am turning 32 this year, it’s a weird age – it’s just there, however I will forever be grateful for growing older – it’s a privilege. I don’t have any grand plans for the day – I have to be at work, I’ll most probably buy a cake that we can enjoy in the evening.
Another season, another taking stock post. If you want to check out my previous installments of these posts, you can click here. Without too much rambling, read on further to find out what’s on my mind lately.
I am the ultimate budget shopper, I love a good bargain! This personality trait and my love for things is how I ended up finding out about AliExpress and shopping on the site a number of times. I usually get questions from readers of my blog and people who follow me on social media about the ins and outs of shopping on AliExpress, so I thought to write this post to let you guys know my experience and some tips. I am not saying that I’m the expert on AliExpress shopping, but I have been doing it for over 3 years now – so I have some insight.
It’s time for another taking stock post, I love these because they give me a time stamp of my life at a particular time. This installment of the series will be filled with baby stuff because that is the main thing that is going on in my life. It’s a busy time for me right now – I am back at work and trying to figure out this working mom life; I am taking it one day at a time. Let’s check out what other things I have been doing lately.
