Do you ever just feel embarrassed of yourself? Or like everything you say/think is annoying?

“I’m 99.9% sure it’s hormonal but I’m having one of those days where I just feel embarrassed. Do you ever just feel embarrassed of yourself? Or like everything you say/think is annoying?

The mum-of-three regularly takes breaks from Instagram and Twitter for the sake of her mental health.

Back in September, Stacey announced she was taking part in a digital detox after being inspired by YouTube star Zoella.

She said: “So I’m going to join in because I feel so strongly about looking after our mental health.

“I always have a phone in a drawer day every week anyway because I think it is so important… So this weekend I’m proud and happy to be doing it for a very special reason.”

Stacey’s recent post follows shortly after the star was forced to defend herself against ‘mum-shamers’.

It came after she wore pyjamas on the school run, and it didn’t sit well with some fans.

Speaking on her Instagram Story, she shared: “Back from the school run and for those telling me how sorry they feel for the boys having a mum who takes them to school in her pyjamas.

“Don’t worry they were my posh pyjamas. I actually felt really dressed up today for the school run.”
