Sometimes when you’re feeling a little bit down, or the dread of winter leaves you feeling blue, you need a little pick me up. There are loads of little things that cheer me up instantly; a new lipstick, a cuddle with my cat, a catch up with a girlfriend, and I think it’s important to make the most of these little things.

When I first started my blog I often used to post about my car boot sale bargains that I would find early on Sunday mornings. I haven’t had a chance to do much boot sale bargain hunting lately, but a couple of weeks ago I did run my own stall at a local boot fair and made a tidy profit! I made over £160, simply by selling unwanted stuff and old clothes that I had collected over time. You may think you have nothing worth selling, but trust me, people buy anything! So clear out your wardrobe, shelves and cupboards,…
