Let’s be honest, no matter how long you’ve been blogging for, we all have moments where it feels like all our inspiration to write and create dries up. I’ve been lucky recently and in getting myself a little more organised, I’ve managed to get back towards to a regular posting schedule. Aside from this, I also realised what I can do for a quick boost of inspiration. So I thought I’d share six of the things I do when I’m feeling like I’m running out of blog post ideas;
I have to say that February is one of my favourite months. For completely selfish reasons. Mostly as it is not only both of my parents birthdays but mine too! This means it’s a month filled with lots of an excuse to celebrate. And eat too much. And spend time with friends and family. With that in mind, it was hard to narrow it down to just five. But, here we go, here are 5 Happy Things from February.
As mentioned in my 2018 goals, I wanted to read at least one book a month this year. So with that in mind, I set about spending less of my commute mindlessly scrolling through Facebook (and tagging people in memes) and more time on the Kindle App reading. I would love to say I’d carry a physical book around, but let’s be honest, my bag is already way too full and my phone is normally in my hand. So, makes sense right? Plus with instant downloads and some free books in my Prime membership, I couldn’t see a downside. (This is not a #ad promise, I’ve just really enjoyed using the app!)

Hey look, I actually managed to get a quote that’s cited for this and not ripped off from a piece of wall art. Go me! Anyway, you know what that means, it’s time for another “It’s The Little Things” post. This time going over 25 or so little things, moments or happenings from February. It might have been a short month, but it was certainly a busy one. What with family visits, several birthdays and way too much food. If you fancy seeing what’s made me happy this month, then have a look below;
If you know me and you’re reading the title, you’re probably thinking “but Fran, you’re not exactly great with money. You admit this…”. Well, this time last year you’d be very right. But, over the last few months, I’ve really got my adult head on and realised that I need to spend a lot more time on building my savings and a lot less on wasting money on things without much to show for it. While I’ve not become completely boring and stopped treating myself altogether, I’ve found these simple tips have helped cut back on a week by week basis. Plus, it means I enjoy those treats even more now…
