The Elephant in the Room

Hi!

Firstly, HAPPY NEW YEAR! I know, I know it’s February already, but considering 2016 is only 39 days old, I think it’s still okay to at least wish you good things. So, I hope 2016 has started off well for you all πŸ™‚

I thought it fitting to give this post its name because, well, for me to have come back from my much needed break and not say anything felt a bit weird to do. 2015 was a crazy year for me. Actually looking back on it, the end of the past three years in a row have had some monumental events happen in my life. So I have no idea why I thought 2015 would be any different! I’m going to cut to the chase, as they say.

My husband and I are expecting our first child πŸ™‚

We are excited, nervous, grateful and can’t wait to meet Baby O! We have decided to keep this incredible journey private, so I know you’ll understand and respect our wishes to not share details of my pregnancy on the blog or any of my other platforms. But in case my bump does sneak into my selfies and videos, you’ll know what it is.

A lot of things are happening in preparation for Baby O’s arrival, hence my extended break. I don’t know if the remaining months will be enough time to prepare me for motherhood though lol. So far it’s been interesting. A MASSIVE shout out to the women who have done this before me. I have a new found deep respect for my mama and all mothers out there.

Thanks for being patient with me. Now we can get on with all things hair and beauty x
