Happy New Year! It’s the start of 2017, and I bet you’ve been wondering where I’ve been. Or at least I hope you have…

2016 was a tough year, let’s face it. The political situation, the economic situation, and frankly, my personal situation. 2016 wasn’t easy on any of us, and the blog took a hit as I tried to steady the boat in other areas of my life. Other bloggers will agree with me, sometimes life gets in the way of blogging, and sometimes you need to step away to get a bit of perspective.

But rather than going in to great detail, I feel like the 1st January is the perfect time to start again. I’ve missed blogging the past few months, and I hope you’ve missed me too. I love going to events and seeking out new finds for you, and so I want to really get House of Blog underway again so you can enjoy it as well.

What to expect? Well, head over to Facebook to find out what this month’s #HoBBookclub is (it’s a good one) and get reading straight away. Stay tuned for some great new workouts this year, because now is the year I’m really going to get in to shape, and get your diary ready, because there’s going to be plenty going on in and around London for you to get involved in.

I’m also changing the format a little bit. Here’s what you can expect from the new schedule…

Monday is #mondaymotivation on Twitter, and it will be here too. Time to hit the gym and start the week right.

Tuesday will prepare you for the latest releases in film and TV.

Wednesday will come to you with the best food and drink the UK has to offer (and what to cook up when you’re feeling uninspired).

Thursday will be all about planning your weekend – what’s on and where to go.

Friday will be the perfect time to crawl through the bookshop because it’s going to be the biggest and best books reviewed right here.

Saturday is my favourite time to get dressed up and feel like I’m ready for a catwalk. Nails, beauty and fashion will all be right here.

Sunday is for the dreamer – expect reviews and stories from the House of Blog contributors, and things we’ve been enjoying during the week or are looking forward to in the week to come.

With the world ever moving towards video, I’m also considering forays in to the world of YouTube. But that might be a little way off yet, so don’t get too excited! For now, make sure you follow me on Instagram Stories and Snapchat (catwomanfran) to get snaps and videos from everything I’m up to – from the best place to get your morning cuppa, to outings with friends and what I’m reading on the tube.

Don’t forget, you can get in touch and become a contributor on House of Blog too! Just drop me an email on fran@houseofblog.co.uk to get involved.
