Ways to find inspiration for blog and business

I’ve been struggling with inspiration as a whole recently  like I have so much that needs to be done so I do nothing. I chatted to my friend Amelia from Suddenly a Mom as she is a entrepreneur and a blogger and always has a thousand things on her to do list and she actually ticks things off.

The right way to make coffee and a Mastertons suprise

Can you make coffee? Apparently there is a right way to do it and I didn’t know it till last month!!!

How have I lived  32 years (shameless referral to my birthday yesterday) and not know the right way to make coffee? Because no one showed me that’s how. Yes I can make coffee with instant granules and I can use the capsule coffee maker. The coffee I’ve been messing up is the filter kind.
