These are the signs I have been in one place for too long… In England for example, please get me out of here!

27 Oct

I think in the past few years I developed Gipsy brain, I need to change, to not get stuck into a daily boring routine…so anything that keeps me “trapped” into a routine drives me mad and makes me angry and I think, I just need to get the hell out of here!

After a month and few days at home I start to feel these symptoms…

I hate every other weekend go for dinner to a curry house/Indian restaurant…I have started to believe British people suffer of constipation so that’s why every weekend they want to…feel free again. Why can’t we go one weekend to a steak house and the week after maybe for a pizza and the one after, who knows just not plan it now!

I hate to admit this but I  have become obsessed with TV series, soap opera or reality show that keeps you “want to know what happens next”. Right now I am obsessed to know what’s next in Eastenders, British soap opera set in East London…will Ben leave jail? Will Janine come back to Michael? Will Sayd and Christian live happy ever after?

This is so wrong.

I hate think about I have to go to the gym, I need to get fit, I have to go in a least three times a week to achieve some results…I hate plan even this. I always think: I am leaving tomorrow and I want to look good…I do know it ain’t going to happen if I go for a workout once a week or every ten days…and always the day before going in holiday! Bikini test…failed.

I hate to go shopping and get the seasons confused…why I can find just coats and winter jackets in the stores?! I need a bikini and more flips flops…ops wrong timing!

Probably this trip to Miami again will make me go into a routine over there…no way in 10 days I can’t even recover from jet lag, let alone have things planned in advance…

Happy Halloween to everyone…I will keep you posted on how it will go over there!

It has been a foodie weekend, for a change! What am I up to? I don’t actually know myself right now!

22 Oct

I just love so much easy weekends, where there is nothing to do, just getting up when it suits me, relax, go out, come back, and cook! Actually our weekend was supposed to be busy, we were supposed to go to the Cotswold to see friends and stay Saturday in their gorgeous cottage in the countryside (last time I went there was Saturday 2nd July last year, I missed Kate Moss wedding lunch to a pub by 10 minutes and I saw John Galliano walking around the high street, that was cool!!!) anyway so there wasn’t much to do, the weather wasn’t that great, as usual, so we just took it easy, breakfast, lunch, dinner, some good movies and a bottle of wine, that’s what you need sometimes. Looking forward to go to Miami in a week, it has been over a month and I cannot wait!!

My weekend, in food pictures

Saturday morning smoothie, before…

and after

The day after it was another story, full English breakfast…in a French restaurant

Roast lamb with vegetables on Sunday night with a nice dessert

Blackberry and apple pie

The pie was made by my husband, I can’t believe how good he is at cooking!!! I am trying to keep myself busy with anything that comes up in my mind right now…but still taking it easy, I must say I haven’t got bored to be a Lady of Leisure yet!!!

Have a great week everyone!!!xxx

Every day is a new day and a new start, whatever you are going to do to be happy!

16 Oct

I have been struggling for a long time in a work situation that wasn’t ideal and that wasn’t make me happy, I mean there was and there isn’t nothing wrong with that but I just felt constantly anxious and frustrated about (and I was starting to annoy the people around me as well with my unhappiness) so today I finally said that’s enough…and I feel so much better and relieved.

No matter what you do if you don’t feel in the right place and if you don’t feel it right it’s better get out before the situation can “ruin” you and try to do something that will make you happy, whatever it’s going to be! Do you want to be a mother? Well time to get pregnant then…do you want to be a housewife? Be a housewife then…do you want to start a new career? Go for it and do well with it.

I am not sure what I want to do with my life yet, I just maybe want to take it easy to start to sort my head out and keep on thinking, I want to walk in the fields and feel the wind and sunshine on my face, I want to enjoy more family and friends and… I would love to work in an environment where I can help people to organize events and weddings…as I am doing right now while helping out a friend… Life is too short to be frustrated and unhappy, just live and enjoy!!!

Sunday in the countryside, sunshine, pub lunch and a trip to the farm!

14 Oct

The day began very cold and foggy but luckily around 11am the weather cleared and the chilli sunshine was out, Sunday it is, ready to enjoy the day with a big pub lunch and a walk about somewhere….not much else to do around here am I right?

Here some pictures from the day:

A pet donkey coming soon? Maybe….so we won’t need to cut the grass anymore! xxx

An apple a day keeps the doctor away…is this working even for Apple products?? Obsessed with my latest gadget…and I got lost in translation!

10 Oct

Hello readers,

I am really sorry that I couldn’t update the blog in the past few days, I have been running errands every day, I have been working, I have been cooking, I have been baking…and I have fallen in love for my new iPad…I am like a child on Christmas day sometimes! (by the way only 75 days till Christmas!!!)


I have been going back and forth from Brighton to attend some meetings, yesterday facing the horrible rainy day, today I have been facing a nice sunshine, I hit the high street on lunchtime but unfortunately I haven’t been successful…I might need to arrange a day out somewhere for a proper shopping spree, up to London would be nice!


Autumn is here, the leaves are falling down from the tree, the garden and the fields around are changing into nice colors and this “season changing” time makes me feel like to wear my apron all day long and cook until dawn….soups, starters, mains, cupcakes….my new idol of the week at the moment is Nigella Lawson…and I even decided if I am ever going to speak English with a British accent…well I want to speak like her!!

Oh my…there is only thing I am dreading about right now…having my refurbished wheels back on my car….S.O.S!!!!

My biggest fear of the day, or actually from now on, curbing my soon refurbished wheels…women and cars….don’t get along very well!

4 Oct

I have been driving for 9 years (it will be 10 on February 2013), never had an accident, I have always been driving carefully but since my new car arrived six months ago and my husband without telling me put on 19inches wheels every time I drive and every time I try to park seems like my wheels have a magnetic attraction to all the curbs in town.

So far, not so good, 3 out of 4 wheels badly scratched and despite I always tell my husband straight away about my “damage”, some nights when he comes home I notice that he walks around my car checking the wheels….oh my god anxiety!!!

It has been six months now for some strange reason I wasn’t worried anymore since someone said – I am changing your wheels to the original one so I send them for repair and after I put them back on your car and be careful….my face went like this

Oh my, I probably will give up driving soon!!! Probably because women don’t get at all the car thing as men do, I mean a car take me from A to B, whichever wheels and whichever car it is!!!

Or maybe I will be more careful if I could have some accessories like these on my car, probably driving will become more, girly!!!

I went for a manicure and after I found myself in Look magazine talking about nail vanish…how crazy!

2 Oct

I booked myself into the local beauty salon yesterday to have my (short) nails done just before I was getting nervous and to help me prevent to bite them again…I love being pampered and the Jessica Geleration should keep me well groomed for at least 2 weeks, love it!

When I left I went to pick up my favourite magazine and what have I found in? Myself reviewing creamy nude nail polishes, how ironic is that? Thanks Look magazine we Heart you!!!

Skinny Feeling Monday….do you feel it? I must have changed my mind about leggings…

1 Oct

About a year ago I posted on my blog a post regarding my reluctance to leggings worn on daily basis by anyone…well I think I changed my vision about it…just a bit.

https://annainherwonderland.com/2011/10/28/leggins-no-please/

Probably because since I discovered my new favourite brand, Forever 21, while in US and soon discovered that this amazing retail store came on the other side of the Atlantic as well I started to appreciate leggings and skinny jeans more than I used to….I bought this pair of simple basic blue leggings last month and they are soft, comfortable and kind of flattering as well (with a long t-shirt) than now I am not afraid to wear leggings on the outside world anymore…I have even started to travel in leggings and I love it!

I have gone skinny today as well, rocking a brown coated Zara Trf jeans and my beloved red Vans shoes….

I need to go for a shopping spree soon with one of my friend and at the moment I have these three items in my wish list…go on skinny!

Have a great Monday !
