FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS AND YOU WILL BE HAPPY….that’s what I am doing and I am so proud of myself today! Anna in her wonderland is launching Italian wedding in wonderland!

28 Nov

I haven’t felt that happy and satisfied for a while. I mean, workwise. I have finally pulled myself together and I have followed my dreams and now my perseverance is paying off. I am so proud to announce that Anna has created Italian Wedding in Wonderland…I even designed the website on my own! I feel so pleased with myself and I am so happy that at the moment I have two lovely clients who are helping me every day to build the strength to carry on and do what I really want to do, be an Italian wedding planner.

If you want to have a look at my website, this is the address

Any comment, positive or even negative will be appreciated.

Thanks a lot to all my readers…Buena Suerte to me!!!

Life according to Anna: best friends and diamonds are forever and my best friend shines bright like a diamond!

24 Nov

Hello readers,

I feel completely disorientated and a bit empty right now, my best friend came to visit and we spent nearly four days together 24/7 and now that she has gone back to Italy I feel…strange, and I feel that something is missing in my life. Me and my best friend Anna (so easy we even share a name!) have been best friends for nearly five years and of course with the fact that nearly four years ago I moved abroad the friendship has grown even stronger but probably because we are used to see each other not very often when I fly back home now spending a few days together doing everything, shopping, cooking, drinking, laughing, even gardening…now that she is not is here I feel so confused. The soundtrack of our days was Unapologetic from Rihanna and I do know that my Anna shines bright like a diamond in the sky!

Countdown to Christmas has started…only a month away and I cannot wait to go back to celebrate with my family (and Anna) and I can’t wait to celebrate my Christmas on Boxing day with my husband ( I need help with presents please I am absolutely stuck!) and I can’t wait even more to go away again on the 27th December…have a good weekend you all!

The only way is the Cotswolds, a piece of paradise in the British countryside…let’s brave some country chic soon!!!

19 Nov

I had such a great weekend away in the Cotswolds, for who doesn’t know anything about:

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in southwestern and west-central England, an area 25 miles across and 90 miles long. The area has been designated as the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty where every weekend lots of people from London go there to enjoy the countryside and to relax from the chaotic city, so we left on Saturday morning to visit a couple of our friends and their children who own a lovely cottage there and we had so much fun….I must admit despite the cold weather!!! I think I have fallen in love hard….for the little 4 months old daughter of our friends…

Pub lunch, walking in the fields, endless glass of red wine in front of the fire, pheasant for dinner…a visit to the animal farm, a visit to the most gorgeous farm shop ever (Daylesford)…a long drive back from Oxford to home…it was a great weekend!!!

Let’s add some gossip to spice up this post…famous celebrities own houses in the Cotswolds, including Kate Moss, Hugh Grant, Elizabeth Hurley, Lily Allen, J K Rowling, Stella McCartney and so on… The first time I went there was the day after Kate Moss got married and I spotted John Galliano walking around the town of Burford, I started to scream in the car when I saw him and very embarrassed he hid himself in the cook shop!

All of a sudden I am back, how did it happen? Florida seems a long memory away! Luckily my Christmas present is coming early this year…and happy 4th anniversary to us!

14 Nov

This morning when the alarm went off at 10.30 I thought…where am I? oh yes I flew back Monday night and here I am, back in England, trying to adjust my body back to Greenwich Time but still thinking on Eastern time! The choice was to come back from Miami Monday night or Friday night, despite how much I love spend time there it was getting too much to take for my on my own, gorgeous place, gorgeous weather but solo…it is not good!

I am back and I am so happy that my best friend is coming to visit next week that I can’t contain myself with joy, that’s why my Christmas present comes early! A full on 3 days of Anna & Anna, we really have a lot to catch up! And do not forget today is my 4th year anniversary with my husband, 4 years together … let’s celebrate!!!

In Miami going mad and enjoying the sunshine at the same time!!! Ridin’ solo at the moment but I will make it!

10 Nov

Hello everyone

I am really sorry about the delay on posting again but the past week has been crazy, really crazy! I postponed my return in the UK for a few days so at the moment I am at home in Miami on my own, my husband went back yesterday and our friend who was here helping us sorting the house left on Wednesday and we have been non-stop all week! Nice night out on Halloween night but after that it has been all about decorating (painting) the house, trying to get the pool sorted, trying to deal with people…I discovered today that Mañana is the favourite word of Hispanic people around here…do not do today what you can do tomorrow!! It might be a way of life here but we are not that used to that and I am struggling to accept it…I finally tried to relax with manicure/pedicure just off Brickell and SW 8Th street….I loved being pampered after ten days of painting, cleaning, washing and cooking…I might even be able to put my bikini on in the next few days!!! Well we had some nice times as well, I went to the Red Bull FlugTag event in Miami and I loved it, we went for nice dinners and drinks out on the beach, it was hard work but we really did enjoy the time together! A few pictures to follow….I will try to keep the blog more updated even from this side of the pond!

The best place for Halloween in planet earth, Miami Beach is unbeatable!!

1 Nov

I have never seen so many people dressed up ready to have fun just up and down the street with the best costumes/fancy dress ever…I have seen a mad hatter that looked better than Jonny Depp in Alice in Wonderland, I have seen a few Dictators, lots of Wonder woman, snow white, sexy nurse and policewoman….even a guy dressed as a sofa!!!! Lincoln Road in South Beach was busier than in New year’s eve and I loved to see the people just enjoying themselves, taking pictures with each other, having a dance and a drink….I love Miami even more as usual!!! I am going to show you some pictures right now and for sure next year I will have a proper costume and not just horror make up on!!!  xxx
