7th July 2014. *Update*

Whilst desperately trying to resist, I've thought about it every single time I've wanted to sit and write this post and so I just can't help myself...  ♫"Guess who's back, back again."♫ "Guess who's back, guess who's back, guess who's back......*quietly fading away*"
I am deeply sorry but Eminem just seemed so inappropriately appropriate.

I'm excited right now, please tell me your excited? I've decided that today was the day, or tonight was the night rather that I opened up my laptop and headed on over to Blogger for what is the first time in months! I without a doubt neglected my blog completely, no opening up to see if people were still interested, no referring back to posts, no nothing. To my surprise when I did log back in I've found that I've had over 11000 views. Round of applause for me! I'm kidding, but really to some that may be a small number but for me thats huge considering I went AWOL shortly after setting up. Yes, I am slightly ashamed but I knew I'd be back and here I am. 

What happened you ask? Well, I don't really have an explanation as such. I've thought about blogging most days and I'm still as make-up obsessed as ever, if not worse. I've been there though, in the shadows, reading all my favourite beauty blogs religiously every day... Yep, the silent beauty blogger who hasn't blogged for months so therefore beauty lover person is probably a better fitted description... Big breath!... I just didn't have the motivation. What I didn't realise is how much time blogging actually takes up. Between photographing products, swatching, taking photos of the product applied (in most cases) and then writing about them, never mind the editing and the constant Twitter updates along with trying to keep Instagram and the likes up to date, I just got lost in the "work" when it was meant to be a fun hobby, I lost the enjoyment and ended up just completely taking a step back. 

I knew the time would come though, when I couldn't wait to write a post, and it's great because it really did. I haven't had to force it at all like I was scared that I'd have to do but I'm happy to be blabbering on and most probably boring you all... High Five to those of you still with me. I feel like I'm able to bring my personality back into my writing and just have fun. It doesn't matter if I don't get a post up on "time" so long as I get a post up, it doesn't matter if my pictures aren't edited to perfection so long as I show the product as it is and it doesn't matter how many new followers I gain, since I became almost obsessed last time round, it sucked the fun out of blogging, I'm grateful for every person who reads Lashes and Bows and hope I continue to gain followers who enjoy to read everything I write but I got to a point where if I lost a follower or hadn't had a new follower that day I would worry about it and feel really sad... Ahhhh dear, I've realised though and I've had time to rediscover my love for Lashes and Bows and the reason I started writing in the first place so here I am again and to all those who have stuck with me all this time Thank You and to any new readers...Welcome.

Lots of Love
