Hope y’all are well. It’s been 4 months since I last wrote a blog post and I thought that I should come on here and say hi and share some life updates. First and foremost, I want to thank you guys for sticking around and still following me even though I have not been actively blogging for a year. To all my new followers, welcome to my humble little blog. Secondly, I just wanted to put it out there that the reason I have not been blogging much is because I wanted to spend as much time with my baby girl as I can. I feel like this first year is really important for me to focus my time with her since it’s a growing and learning period for babies and I want to give her all my attention and not be worried about meeting posts datelines.
In today’s post I just wanted to share some life updates and talk about what is going on with life, a bit of mommy and baby talks, and also what my plans are for my blog in the future. I know, this does not sound as exciting as compared to my makeup or style posts, but I enjoy writing some lifestyle contents as well so bear with me y’all! Haha.
Where have I’ve been for the past 4 months? Still here really. Haha! I still checked on my blog a couple times each week but I don’t have the desire to write a post. And this is the reason why: Life with a baby is exhausting!
You’d think that being a full time stay at home mom (SAHM) would be easy because all you do is take care of baby and do some housework here and there right? Wrong! Girl, let me tell ya, babies need constant attention all the time. This is especially true when they were younger, but now that my lil girl is 10 and a half months old, she could play by herself for at least 15 to 20 minutes and then she’ll start being cranky and needed my attention. On top of taking care, playing with baby and such there are also house chores that I have do too like preparing meals for the Hubby, baby and I, cleaning the house (which I now am not so OCD about) and other not so fun adult things. I also set aside some time to focus on my marriage as well, that means spending time with your spouse too, whether having dinner together or watching a movie on the couch after the baby goes to bed. I will be so pooped out at the end of the day and all I want to do is rest with a cup of tea in hand and relax.
Speaking of which, I can’t believe that my baby girl is turning 1 years old in a month!! *crying emoji* I am already emotional just thinking about it. People always point out that babies grow so fast and yeah, I get it and since I actually am experiencing it first hand, it’s so true! My girl learned how to sit herself up and crawl in a week! See the reason why I wanted to spend all of my time with her during this first year? Haha.
I’m sure a lot of mamas could relate. Being a mom is a job itself and even though I have some good days and bad days, been crazy exhausted for a couple weeks in a row, had little to no sleep (max of 5 hours), and having to drink cold coffee, but at the end of the day everything is well worth it. Watching your baby grow and listening to your baby laughs at your silly jokes is the best feeling ever.
Now lets talk about blog stuffs.
I have been thinking of redoing my blog for the past two years now. Through out my blogging journey, I’ve always considered it to be a side hobby and it’s something that I do not want to take so seriously. Even though I’ve been blogging for three and a half years, I’ve never monetize my blog, or make it into a business to generate money. I’ve done some amazing collaborations with companies where they “gifted” me their products for an exchange for a blog post, and I also did some paid posts too. With that, I feel like this would be a great opportunity for me to start turning my blog into a business and also be my own brand.
I have not finalized what type of content my new blog is going to be. I hope to continue writing a lifestyle blog with my usual beauty and style with bits of motherhood too. As for how my new blog is going to look like, I want a clean and easy to navigate blog. Very vague, I know but I have not look into it that much yet. For now, it is still in the planning stage so nothing is set in stone. I will definitely update you guys more about the blog upgrade.
That’s it for now. I hope this post isn’t too long with pointless ramblings. Haha! I’ll catch you in my next one!
Thanks for reading!XOXO ❤
