Just a wee post to let you know I haven’t been “as” AWOL as it may seem. I am currently, more graciously so at times than at others, incubating a soon-to-be bouncing BM! beauty to round out my lusciously large tribe of children, and it seems I am really meant to get the FULL experience this time around. I have been ordered strict bed rest for the bulk of the second trimester which I am currently midway through. *happy dance* When all is going along swimmingly, I am allowed to serve my sentence of bed rest at home (hence the odd sneaky post while allowed, ever so briefly, to venture to my Obstetrician’s appointments etc.) but at times I am required to be under the watchful eye of the midwives and other medicos at the maternity hospital for a spell, hence the sporadic posts. All and all, I just wanted to let the bestest, most loving, and ultra gorgeous readers in the world know: I may be down for the moment, but I am most certainly not out. Baby Beauty Marked! is due in very early May, so judging how fast time always seems to fly, I am sure to be back in the beauty saddle before too long. Plus, you know me, I am, indeed, still continuing to scribe and research much of what this beautiFULL world has to offer (especially for those cheeky ones of us on bed rest…you’d be surprised) while laying low and very much looking forward to continuing to gorgeously share it all with you. I mean really, as we all well know, I just can’t help myself now can I? Tragic, but true.
Just for the moment,
NB. I pinned up the magnificent muse pictured above just because she reminds me exactly how one is properly meant to “do” bed rest.
Happy Holidays to you and yours from us at Chez Beauty Marked!. May all your wildest, most love-filled dreams come true, both now and always…and your days be forever filled with gorgeously great cheer!

Hello Lovelies. I am still here and still working to deliver you gorgeously delectable beauty treats perfect for the body and the soul. I have just been a lot snowed under and fabulously busy with my lusciously large family, our Beauty Seminars and working on the Beauty Marked! behind-the-scenes infrastructure making lots of wonderfully exciting changes. As head cook and bottle washer, I often find myself burning the candle at both ends most days. But do know, I am chuffed to still be able to burn the candle so to speak and it seems I have a fair few candles yet to burn. So Beautiful Ones, know I am still kicking on (in the most lady-like way of course) and working to bring you even more victuals to Get Even More Gorgeous With Beauty Marked!
