Welcome to the new (& hopefully improved) clairelouiisexo.co.uk! I am so excited to finally be back and I can’t wait to get back into the swing of things again with my blog.
Before I get into this post I just want to say a HUGE thanks to Claire at AlohaLolaCards for once again, designing the most beautiful blog header for me. Nothing is too much trouble for her and she’s honestly just so amazing to work with!
If you follow me on social media, you’ll probably know why I’ve been so absent on the blog front. As well as getting some redesigning done, I have had the absolute busiest few months. Due to all that was going on, it just felt right to give my blog the backseat whilst I’ve been trying to adjust to all the wonderful, exciting and terrifying changes that have gone on in my life!
I have loads of posts planned about everything that has happened so I am going to go into a lot more detail about it all over the next few weeks to get myself back into the blogging world again but I thought it might be a good idea just to try to briefly recap the past few months and give a sort of explanation for why I have been so busy and absent.
I became a mum in January 2018
As per my last post, I announced that I was pregnant with my first ever baby! This was such an exciting time for me and I’ve never felt so lucky. I can’t wait to share my pregnancy details, birth story and my amazing experiences being a mummy!
As well as the arrival of my perfect daughter in January, my boyfriend and I also got the keys to our first ever flat together (exactly 19 days before baby arrived!). Up until then, I was still living with my parents so moving out was a huge step for me, especially whilst being very pregnant!
Back to university
In September 2017 I went back to university as well to finish my last year. This is something I had been so worried about all of last year (if you read my University Series, you’ll know why) but I managed it! I’m gonna save the details for my upcoming reflection post but basically, I went back to uni and made some fantastic new friends! I’m now awaiting my degree results ready to graduate in a months time. Who’d have thought!?
So basically I have had the busiest 9 months (I can’t believe its been 9 months since my last post)! Honestly, though, I have missed my blog and the blogging community so, so much. It’s great knowing that I have time now to actually start blogging again because I love writing and sharing my life with you all (as we all know I’m a HUGE oversharer). So much has changed since last year and since my last few posts – it’s honestly so overwhelming. I am so happy that I’m back doing what I love now!2018 has been the best year of my life so far. I absolutely cannot WAIT to see where the rest of it will take me and I can’t wait to share it here too.

Thank you so much for reading this little brief life update. Stay tuned for more posts about this crazy year I’ve had, where I’m at now and let me know in the comments if there’s anything you want to read!
