I have been aware for quite a while that my blog is no longer what it started out as. I began with the intention of following more of a “mommy blog” format, hence my blog name, but I think that over the course of this year I have found my core interest and my blog has definitely become a beauty blog. It has been a long time since I have written anything about kids’ activities or things specific to moms, and my kids’ fashion posts are limited to the launch of new ranges once every few months.
I have found, or re-discovered, my real passion, the thing that takes me away from the reality and serious business of being a mom (not often fun) and gives me something to enjoy, aspire to, play with and build my self confidence. Makeup and skincare are my version of Madison’s My Little Pony collection…pure escapism, imagination and the simple pleasure of prettiness. Taking skincare seriously is also my way of investing in my future self, as opposed to only investing my time and energy into my child’s future self. Basically, my blog is the one place I can stop being a reluctant and often harassed mom and just be myself.
I do care about green living and being gentle on the earth and on your skin, but I have also realized that as a bit of a generic beauty blogger I need to be open to more brands. I can’t really change my blog name at this stage, but I have removed my tag line until I can think of something more appropriate. What I would love is if those of you who read my blog – and I really want to give a shout out to the amazing fellow beauty bloggers and makeup lovers who have been so supportive – could make some suggestions to help me out. In one line how would you sum up my blog’s personality?
I also want to do a bit of a blog makeover at some point but I haven’t quite decided which direction to go in yet. So all and any feedback would be appreciated.
