Wicked at the Apollo Victoria Theatre, Review || London

When I first moved to London, after I was settled I eagerly made plans with some of my best friends for them to come, visit and of course, explore the city. With each of my best friends, I decided to treat us to theatre tickets as it’s something we’d not done together before. While Becky and I went for The Book Of Mormon, I thought it might be a bit too vulgar for my friend James and instead got us tickets for Wicked. Why am I walking down memory lane about it? Well, even after seeing various others such as School Of Rock, Aladdin and An American In Paris, these two are still my absolute favorites. And, well, some of the only I’ve chosen to see more than once. So when From The Box Office asked if I’d like to go and see Wicked again, well how was I to refuse?!

With that in mind, here are my thoughts on my third trip to see Wicked at the Apollo Victoria Theatre, London.

So, here’s a list of 25ish things, events and miscellaneous other bits and bobs which made me happy during September.

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 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

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…
