How One Little Thing Can Left Your Spirits

I haven't had the best couple of days if I'm being honest, thankfully my cold / flu thing appears to be on the way out, and the antibiotics are over - hello real tea with MILK. However as I got better my mum took a turn for the worse. She has been having problems with her ears for a little while now so when she got my virus it was inevitable which part it was strike first - her ears! On Tuesday morning she was in an absolutely awful state, dizziness, nausea, slurred speech and eventually continuous vomiting, she wasn't in a good way at all. I called the doctor and she came straight out, diagnosing vertigo caused by an inner ear infection, so she gave her a prescription for anti nausea and dizziness tablets which thankfully some relatives managed to collect for me, and thankfully that seemed to do the trick. She is still pretty tired and her head still feels fuzzy  but she's managed to eat something today, and she's feeling a little brighter, thankfully she still has the medication in case it happens again  and she has an appointment to see the ENT team in a couple of weeks time so hopefully she'll get it sorted once and for all.

I have to say everything that happened yesterday left me utterly drained, I swear I have never seen her so poorly, I had an awful nights sleep and I've felt really weepy all day :( - I really don't know what I would do without her.

I've spent the day doing a bit of tidying, making a few meals for my mum, eventually posting the first of my MUA posts, and trying to chill out. I was feeling pretty down but then an email popped up in my inbox. No doubt you will see a few of these posts popping up but I felt it deserved a post. I was contacted by So Feminine, the largest online magazine for women about their first ever Beauty Blog Awards - they informed me that LouLouLand features in their top 100 list of Best Beauty Bloggers

I am so flattered it untrue to come 75th in the list is pretty amazing for me, especially when I don't consider LouLouLand 100% a beauty blog I am so grateful to everyone for reading and for their support (comes over all teary and sniffly) However as you can see the list only contains 90 blogs, it therefore up to us who we want to see filling the remaining 10 spaces, all you have to do is email with the url of the blogs you want to see added to the list. I can certainly see a few major omissions which I want to put right x Thanks to everyone at So Feminine and of course thanks to you guys xx Hopefully normal posting will resume soon x


  1. Congratulations!
    Hope your mum's feeling much better soon, it's horrible when mummies are ill :(
