2013 will be my year

I can feel it in my bones – 2013 will be my year…AND YOURS TOO!

Happy 2013 to all of you beautiful peeps out there!  I want to thank all the lovely ladies* who took their time to send me lovely encouraging messages from blog comments to Tweets to Facebook messages to emails to SMS to Whatsapps in regards to my previous post.  They genuinely helped put a big smile on my face.

As for my progress, I am getting there…but it still hurts.  To be honest, I over-estimated my healing abilities because I thought I would be back to my regular beauty blogging self, but I won’t lie.  I am not ready yet.  Tomorrow marks the 3rd week since our loss.  I just feel like I can’t beauty blog and talk passionately about beauty products when my heart is elsewhere at the moment.

And yep, you guessed it, I still have the hairiest upper lip!!!  And I have been wearing the daggiest clothes sans makeup!!!

But I did paint my nails the other day (OPI Passion as seen in photo) so I’ll get there eventually!

I won’t apologise for extending my blog break because I need it to heal emotionally.  It’s amazing how much healing occurs when you spend time with loved ones and doing things you love.  My Mum has been cooking all my favourite foods including sweet and sour pork!!  Woohoo!  I am also going to get her to teach me to carve a carrot into a rose (see photo).

I’m going to Hong Kong next week and yay, I’ll get to see my Dad there.  Retail and food therapy, I’m comin’!!!!

Be back soon *pinky promise*

*Thank you all you lovely ladies who wrote me messages <3 <3 (I promise this list will be updated every time I get a new message, but if I forgot to pop down your name, please forgive me) :
