Well, I'm counting February as a bit of a 'write-off' - quite literally, actually. I've had a proper dry spell when it came to blogging this month. I don't know what's up with me, but the inspiration just hasn't been there for the past few weeks for me to create content that I was happy with. I'm sure I'm not alone in this, and I'm almost certain that people would rather I took that break from blogging instead of reading posts that were not 100%. I even bought Dana Fox's 365 Blog Topic Ideas: For The Lifestyle Blogger Who Has Nothing to Write About, and I'm hoping it'll set me on the right track so I can get back on that blogging train. Instead, I've been using my time to do other things and found myself pretty much blogging through Instagram in the meantime.

One really lovely event that happened this month was that we celebrated my Dad's birthday, my dog's birthday and Pancake Day all on the 17th. I hadn't seen my big brother in ages either, so I insisted on a photo after we'd had lunch because we hardly ever document things together.

I've also become obsessed with homewear this month. I'm at the point of no return. I think that my new stash might end up being a post all in itself because I have quite a few new goodies that I've fallen in love with; and I managed to grab a few bargains too. You could probably sense my (totally sad) excitement when my Mum suggested we go and have coffee and cake - free coffee and cake, mind - at our newest John Lewis at Home store. The cafe was so busy but, oh my god, I just wanted to buy everything in the store but I resisted to buy a single thing! Needless to say, I'm going back there when I've saved up some pennies. I have my eye on a few Orla Kiely patterned cake tins amongst other things...

Just like to point out that this is my first Saturday off work in f o r e v e r, and so I'm desperately trying to make the most of my weekend despite the horrible weather. I swear to god the weather just can't decide what it's doing - one day it's gorgeously sunny, the next it's freezing torrential rain. Roll on the summer, eh? At least the mornings and evenings are getting lighter now. That's one thing I always look forward to, and it means there will be more time to take blog photographs in natural light - bloggers rejoice!


  1. It'll do you good having a blogging break, because then you'll come back refreshed and be able to focus on what you want to blog about! I can't wait until this nasty drizzly weather goes xx

    1. I'm feeling a lot more refreshed already this month - we'll see how long it lasts! Thanks beaut! Xx

  2. I do love your insta feed, it's gorgeous and makes me wish I wasn't holed up in a poky student flat for the majority of the year. I guess the only upside is I actually have a legitimate excuse to not go outside in the terrible terrible weather we've been having (so sorry, studying!!!) recently - definitely roll on summer.

    Hope you're feeling refreshed and that Dana's book helps you break through the blogger block :)
