The style challenge, I have a wedding coming up and the Beach Polo to attend…#millagracestyleme might help me!

5 Jul

Hello dear readers

I received an email yesterday from Milla Grace boutique in the lanes in Brighton,they contacted me to give me the chance to participate to the #millagracestyleme competition and I couldn’t miss this opportunity!!

The aim is to create a look from the products featured on the Milla Grace site or in their store in Dukes Lane, Brighton; the winning blog will win their favorite piece from their look…

Well I am working on now! I am going to attend the Beach Polo on Sandbanks next Saturday and I really don’t know what to wear, I am not normally a person that dress up in pretty summery dresses, I am more the type “skinny jeans, white shirt and leather jacket combo”, but let’s try to make an effort for this event. I have chosen the light blue colour for my possible outfit:

trim detail jacket in mint Almost Famous Drew dress in aqua Virginie Castaway Aldo shoes BuitoNail Varnish in GommeI am always cold, and the weather is rather unpredictable in England isn’t it? That’s why I added the Almost Famous Trim detail jacket in Mint colour, the drew dress  in Aqua is really pretty but elegant at the same time, and to keep the theme I love the light blue nail varnish to brighten up your mani-pedi! The shoes are from Aldo shoes, white, simple, with a heel that should support me on the sand and from 1pm to 1am!

I forgot to say that I am going to the Beach Polo to celebrate the combined stag/hen do of a lovely couple of friends of mine, and of course my next big event to attend is their wedding in Southampton, where I need another outfit for!

I know one of the first rules of a wedding is…only the bride can wear white, right? Ok I understand, but as you all know me I love breaking rules and make up my own ones, so can I wear this outfit please?

I love that white dress…and what better than a yellow jacket and yellow heels to make it “less white” but still bright and funny? With a touch of colour with that nail varnish to make the outfit more sophisticated… I cannot afford Louboutin shoes at all but my birthday is coming up…so husband read here please! 😉

Christmas very late edition with some good and old New Year resolution…does it work? It doesn’t for me at all…my disrupted wonderland of broken promises.

16 Jan

I must admit, I am not very good with New Year resolutions…I mean I always mean to keep my word and go for it, but it doesn’t work very well. My last year resolution was to write a recipe book (as you can see in a post I published one year ago)

https://annainherwonderland.com/2012/01/19/recipe-books-and-lifestyle-resolution-whats-going-on-in-my-wonderland/

But the idea got abandoned after my lack of culinary order, I wrote a few recipes and stored them on my laptop but my problem is, I hate follow recipes when I cook because I like to be creative ad change things around…so with this problem I can’t even follow my own recipes and stick with it…LAST YEAR RESOLUTION result: FAILED.

Another last year resolution was to join the gym and go for it: I did join the gym, I did enjoy, I did get back pain and muscle aching, I did go at least twice a week (for 4 or 5 months), but with the new wedding planning business going on and all the traveling…I haven’t put my foot there since end of October, I actually have frozen my membership temporarily  with the aim of starting again in February… LAST YEAR RESOLUTION result: FAILED, AGAIN.

So as you can see I am not very good to keep my own promises but what is the good thing about Christmas and new year (excluding the presents, the industrial quantity of food and drinks eaten and drunk, the few pound put on and the traveling)? The fact that everyone feels more positive to have a new start, even if it doesn’t happen.

As today, I am happy to face the new year with my new gorgeous Louis Vuitton handbag, the Petit Noe’ (thanks to my amazing husband). 2013…the world is ours!

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

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!!!!

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 !

Enjoyed an Italian wedding at the weekend and now off again, living the American Dream for a few days!

19 Sep

I cannot believe how much I travel, sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and, panic….where am I?? Just came back from the wedding of my lovely cousin in Italy, I enjoyed so much spending time with my family and relatives that I nearly didn’t want to come back, but I had to, full on 3 days at work and here I am, off again in the morning, destination Miami!

I’d like to show you some pictures of the weekend, and congratulations again to Barbara&Roberto, l love Italian weddings!!!

I never want to grow up; I am obsessed with Hello Kitty!!!

30 Aug

When I was in vacation in America last month when I saw these shoes I had to get them, so I did. Hello kitty black Vans shoes…when my husband saw me on my return he said: Anna….are you not old enough? Well apparently not!!!

My blackberry at the moment is playing up and it is away for repair and I am struggling to keep up with emails, bbm and blogging as well and I do apologize for this, I am actually thinking to ditch the blackberry and move on to and Iphone, mostly for those pictures I have found online…Hello Kitty obsessed!!!

From bikinis to rain boots, from croissants to Marmite, please take me back to Saint Tropez! One year wedding anniversary to celebrate today!

16 Jul

In the last few days so many things happened and I have been through so many emotions in just a short period of time, Thursday morning I was getting ready for my best friend wedding and I just started to cry, out of the blue, because I am so happy for her found happiness. At the ceremony, I was smiling and clapping my hands when I broke down again…her gorgeous daughters wrote a reading on their own that was so sweet and full of love that made my heart to break, what a wonderful day we had and I wish so much happiness to the newly married!

The day after we had a very early start and left for the south of France for our anniversary weekend in Saint Tropez, it was so good, so much fun, so much good food and great weather that now that we are back I feel so lost! But despite the weather here is horrible and cold, I cannot forget that today we celebrate our first wedding anniversary, how exciting! Better if I start to cook while you check out all the pictures!! Xxx
