Where the HELL have you been?

That would be me.

I thought I would take a moment to explain my virtual absence from the blogging world recently.

I have had some great new brands come my way in recent months which is obviously A: good for my working life and B: atrocious for my blogging life.

I know some of you think I'm like Chandler in Friends: 'What does she actually DO?!' I look after the interests of numerous beauty brands in the UK and also match brands to retailers, and then manage that relationship. I also take on side projects (in the beauty industry) occasionally.
So for example if you had a brilliant new cleanser and you wanted to take it to market, I'm your woman. Equally if you have the beginnings of an idea and you want to start the process of MAKING that product - I'm your woman again.
I love what I do. Its just that at the moment I have new clients that need my attention.

Then when  I get home I have a husband, two teenagers and two little ones that need my attention. Not to mention the cat. The housework. School business. Family. Friends. Simon Le Bon (ok fine not Simon Le Bon). And then there's Give and Makeup. I have to make that a priority as I know you all understand.  All that has lately, left me with very little left at the end of the day for blogging.

I love blogging, but I don't live for it. So it has to fit in when I can fit it in. Which unfortunately, in recent weeks, is not often. And this is most definitely not a complaint - or a 'woe is me' post. I love my job. I'm a very lucky, blessed woman/wife/mum/daughter/mate. No complaints. At all. Just an explanation.

So I apologise to you lovely people that are so supportive when I do post. I have a plan and I'm putting it into action next week. Hopefully there will be enough of me to go round. And I can catch up with the ridiculous list of upcoming posts I have both in my head, in my Filofax and on my phone. And instead of wanting to climb back into bed with these two:

I'll have the energy to tell you all about my latest brand:

Well if anyone can talk about keeping your fanny clean....

As Arnie said to his housekeeper: 'I'll be back.'



  1. Muff!? Aside from that, dude you're a busy lady, hats off to you for being so organised! I've just bought a very fancy Filofax in the hope that I'll manage to remember one of my jobs.

    Now, muff.......?

  2. It's lovely to know that I'm not the only one guilty of 'blog neglect' this month. I was feeling guilty until I read your post. I work 60 hours a week investigating domestic violence offences and interviewing suspects, I have 4 kids, 4 cats, a puppy and a hubby. To be honest there have been days this month when blogging has been the last thing on my mind and my days off have been spent catching up on sleep, housework, shopping and checking in with my family. I absolutely love blogging but sometimes, as you say, it really does have to take a back seat. In other news, I cannot wait to hear all about the new products, absolutely love the name, I take it these will be displayed on top shelves in stores and attract crowds of giggling teenagers!

  3. Wow - Muff sounds interesting!!! I'm the same this month. Been working mega long house (it never stops) and even without any kids, there's been no time for blogging. With 4, I don't know how you find the time at all!


  4. Oh, I spotted that on one of my online shopping sessions. I should have known you'd be in on that one ;). How cute is that picture of the small people in bed? Gorgeous! xx

  5. Muff muff muff muff muff. MUFF.

  6. Giggles manically!!!
    Muff? Love it.

    I hear exactly what you are saying. I've been guilty of the same. But without the excuse of a fab job to distract me.

    You know what they say.

    Always leave them wanting more. You DEFINITELY do that hun

  7. Take your time, lovely, I'm sure you also need some time to rest :) The photo is super cute! x

  8. I've been trying to get hold of a bottle of Muff for a while now. Where the blazes can we find it?? I'm bored with Femfresh... ;0)
