7 Reasons Learning A Language Should Be Your 2019 Resolution || Travel

I hate to break it to you all, but 2019 is only 12 and a bit weeks away. (I know, it’s terrifying isn’t it?!). That means it’s not only almost time to be planning for the festive season, looking back over how you did on your goals for the year and, of course setting goals for the next. So, with that in mind, I’m going to share with you why improving my language skills is pretty high up there on my 2019 New Years Resolution list. (I mean, I want to make sure I smash my DuoLingo streak record of 52 days!) And, why learning a new language or improving your current skills should be on yours too!

5 Happy Things – #24 – August || Life Lately

5 Happy Things from August? Fran, it’s October 1st. What are you doing?” – well, the simple answer is I didn’t quite want to skip doing a month of these after I’ve done it for the past two years. It’s also nice to walk down memory lane and give myself a slight prompt as to if there are any posts I should probably have written already. Oh dear. Anyway, let’s take a trip down memory lane and look at some of the happier moments from August…

My “Blow The Budget” 2019 Travel Bucket List || Travel

I feel like, although I’ve not hit my target of 5 trips out of the UK this year just yet. (Well, I mean, there’s two months left so here’s hoping I might up that number still!) I have found myself, yet again, lusting over those trips that would most I could simply not justify doing either for being seen as “a waste of money” unless combined with another trip or would completely destroy my savings or go some way to wiping out my credit card. But, hey, a girl can dream right?! So on that note, here’s a selection of places on my bucket list that I would love to do in 2019 but I’m not quite sure I could manage to do. Or, at least to do more than one…

“I do small things. I try to do good things every day.” – Jackie Chan

It’s that time again, I’m sharing with you lovely lot a list of happy things from a month past. If you’re new here, every month I write 25 or so little and not so little things from each month for my “It’s The Little Things” series. I don’t know if anyone enjoys reading them as much as I do, but I just like having a list of happy moments to look back on when I’m not feeling so positive about things. So, without further ado, here’s a round up for August;

A Night At Ibis Styles Hotel, Ealing || Travel

A Night At Ibis Styles Hotel, Ealing || Travel

You know how a few weeks ago I bought you guys my first ever hotel review when I stayed at the Bloc Hotel in Gatwick’s South Terminal? Well, I’m back again with another hotel review for you today, this time a little closer to home at the newly refurbished Ibis Styles, London Ealing. If you’re not familiar with the Ibis Styles brand, I’ll give you a run down. Essentially, each has a fun theme linking it with the local area and each room has little (or not so little) nods towards it. With Ealing being famous for Ealing Studios which have been producing films for well over a hundred years, along with a new Picture House development opening opposite. Well, it seems obvious as to why this particular Ibis Styles chose a movie theme throughout. So, on to my thoughts on the hotel itself…
