I have so many important things to share with you in this month’s round-up of travel gossip on Taylor Hearts Travel. The question is do I start with the super duper exciting bits of goss or the serious one? Okay, let’s get the serious news out of the way.
A Serious Announcement
So, it turns out that baby brain is a real thing. Girls, I’m warning you in advance. I thought it was a mythical thing, like some sort of excuse or trait to play up to during pregnancy. However, it’s real.
I’ve left my purse in Debenhams (luckily now safely recovered), I’ve sprayed my kitchen worktops with Fabreeze (anti-bac spray is so last season…), and most recently I argued that my ice-lolly was healthy because it was 97% fat (erm, no it’s not a stick of lard. I meant 97% fat-free).
I even genuinely believed that the Jimmy Carr version of Countdown was a rebranded version that had replaced the original one. I spent five minutes praising the producers for being so innovative until someone had the heart to correct me. And that my friends, is just the tip of the iceberg.
I’m trying to preserve what’s left of my mind, so wondered if you’d be kind enough to let me know what types of posts you’d like to see more of.
I know you guys like the weekly travel competition round-up so that one will be staying for the long-term. If you’re new to this blog, you’ll find that one every Saturday (and hi btw!).
I’ve been a bit quiet on the #SundayServed feature lately, but I do have some good ones coming up so I’m thinking that will stay. Otherwise, what do you guys want to see/read?
Do you want more pearls of wisdom (‘top seven’ style posts)? Do you want to see more personal pics or do you prefer it when I shut up about myself and get to the travel stuff? Perhaps, you like what you see on here and think I should carry on as usual or maybe you’d like to see more travel style (homeware, fashion etc) pieces?
Whatever it is, lemme know.
The Super Duper Exciting News
Yahoo Style has named Taylor Hearts Travel as ‘One of Fifteen Travel Blogs to Watch in 2015’! I’m so excited to be in such good company (I also write for The Travel Hack and that blog is one of the other fourteen). I love that amazing bits of news like this one come just at the right time. It’s been just the thing to get my blogging mojo back up and running. I feel so lucky and happy as I write this post. Eeeeeeeeeee!
Char Taylor’s blog has a likeable, young feel and her chatty style of writing makes you feel like you’re getting an email from your oldest (and very well-travelled) best friend from school. She also does a weekly roundup of the best travel competitions on the web, so subscribing to her site means you might even win a holiday!
And it seems happiness really does breed happiness. DiscountMyFlights has named Taylor Hearts Travel as a ‘Top 100 UK Travel Blog’. Yaaaaaaay!
On the travel front, during August I had an amazing chance to go to Barcelona. It was a bit of a babymoon and a chance to revisit one of my fave cities. If you haven’t been or need help in persuading a certain someone to take you, my Seven Reasons to Visit Barcelona is especially for you. I’ve even published my Seven Top Things to See and Do in Barcelona, just cos you know, I’m helpful like that. I’ve also shared a travel guide to the city and a review of a cool hotel over on The Travel Hack.
Later on in the month I went to the Cotswolds for another babymoon. One overseas and one in the UK – seems reasonable, right?! I’ll be sharing all the details here soon.
August also took me to Brighton here in the UK. Despite taking over five hours to get there (rather than two) it was fun to visit again. You can catch up on that trip soon.
Due date is fast approaching so I’m not planning on going overseas now and have turned a few more trips down. However, there are a few trips to London in the calendar and I’m going to Blogstock too (well, on the Saturday). If you’re going, let me know. It’d be great to say hey!
So that’s all of my news for now, until next month’s update.
How was your August and what travels do you have planned for the rest of the year? X
