Is anyone even reading this?

Well. Look who is back. Again.
I'm a bad, lapsed blogger. I know. 
If you come here for the regular content at the forefront of fashion, sadly you've come to the wrong place. Hopefully I can lure you in with my charm instead? If not, how about some homemade fudge? (more on that later, it's an obsession I tell you)

So. It's been almost 3 months since my last blog post which is a long time in the blogging world. I don't particularly agree with apologies for not being active and posting, I'm not obliged to blog and this blog was originally and always will be a hobby for me. So this is not an apology but rather a chance for me to share where I am in my life now. My blog always had a personal edge to it and was never just about the make up so I feel it is only natural to share. 
The past few months has seen my handsome little boy (remember him) turn 4 years old and start full time school (I'm still crying. Honestly. Expect reviews on amazing waterproof mascaras in the near future)  blogging took a back seat so I could focus on having fun, birthdays, my son and my husband. We've have good times and we've had some pretty horrible, soul destroying times in those three months.

We have been trying to expand our family and so far - failing. We were so incredibly lucky to fall pregnant on our first month of trying, however, sadly that pregnancy was not meant to be and I lost the baby.
I have spent the time since focusing on my health an my family rather than being a beauty blogger. It's hard to even contemplate writing about beauty when you feel so far from beautiful. I still can't use a newly bought lipstick without taking a photograph of it first in pristine condition, the back of my hand is still usually covered in swatches and my bathroom/bedroom still looks like a franchise of Space NK but finding the time, effort and courage to post on my blog has been near impossible.
I'm still a bit too fragile to put myself entirely 'out there' on the internet and amidst so many fantastic bloggers so please bear with me.

Now my little darling is in full time school (sniff sniff) I have a lot of time on my hands. As a stay at home mammy, I always envisioned (begrudgingly) waving the little man off to school and having his little brother or sister to focus my attention on - however life works in mysterious ways and so far our best laid plans have yet to come to fruition. Hopefully with time our dreams will become reality.

So with all this free time, there is only so much baking, cooking and making fudge I can do (honestly, see my instagram!) before I lose all my teeth to cavities and become the size of a house this seems the perfect time to resurrect my blog. It won't be entirely beauty, I will warn you. This blog, as the name suggests is just whatever is on my mind. I won't lie though, there will still be a lot of beauty!
I hope I still have some readers out there and gain some new ones along the way.
I have stockpiled so many photographs over the months so I have plenty of posts coming up.

You can still find me on twitter and instagram as @ge0rgiaonmymind so please join me over there also.
