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?

Christian Louboutin yellow peep-toe pumps Nail Varnish in Message in a Bottle

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! 😉

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas, an Italian Christmas!!! Love being home surrounded by family and friends and off to Miami with my husband in 3 days!

24 Dec

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go;
Take a look in the five-and-ten, glistening once again
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas,
Toys in every store,
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door.

Do you feel the festive spirit? Do you feel the love in the air? I do and I am so happy to breathe an Italian Christmas again! I have been back since Thursday and I have been non-stop as usual and I am looking forward to celebrate tonight with friends and to celebrate tomorrow with the family, Happy Christmas everyone…now some pictures of the past few days!

Beautiful blogger award finally on air on Annainherwonderland.com!

30 Sep

It has been a while and I really need to apologize and say thanks at the same time to Alexandra http://askmystyle.com/, who recently nominated me for the “Beautiful Blogger Award” … I love how bloggers get close together and appreciate each other efforts on their blog with awards! Thanks a lot Alexandra and please everyone check her blog!

The Rules:

– Post 7 interesting things about yourself

– Nominate other bloggers who I feel deserve the award

– Let them know about the nomination

7 things about me:

  1. I can’t stay on the same place for long; I always need to travel around. I have been in England for 7 days now and I feel already sick about it, I wish I could travel tomorrow to go somewhere else…and come back…and go again.
  2. My heritage is Italian and a bit English…my great grandfather was born in London and christened in Saint Paul’s Cathedral at the beginning of the 20th century
  3. My favourite cuisine is Italian, as you can all imagine – I cannot live without pasta and I am obsessed with cooking.
  4. I’m a girly girl, I love pink and pastel colours and high heels (even if I fall quite easily) but I can’t resist to spikes and studs to add a tough touch to my clothes and my Converse shoes.
  5. My favourite book is the “I love shopping series” by Sophie Kinsella, I read those books in Italian and read them all again in English to learn the language and they always make me laugh, I must be honest I love the 50 shades of grey trilogy as well…who doesn’t???
  6. Louis Vuitton bags are my favourite accessories, they go well with anything even with a cheap Primark dress they do the job!!!
  7. I have started to struggle to speak my own language, I have to speak in English all the time, is it not crazy??

Fabulous blogs I enjoy and I’d like to nominate:

Happy belated birthday to me and happy birthday to my blog!!! Holidaying in the Italian Riviera with family not enjoying too much the heat wave, luckily back in cold United Kingdom!

24 Aug

Hello dear readers,

I am sorry to have not written on the blog for such a long time but I was enjoying too much my holiday with my parents, relatives and cousins down in the Italian Riviera, now I am back home and I have more time to keep you updated with my realities…I am growing old, last Sunday (19th August) I turned 28…oh my!!! I had a lovely day with my husband and my family going to the beach, sunbathing, eating, drinking…drinking again and so on! I love so much that part of Italy as I said before, I spent so many summers there when I was a child that the place has so many memories for me…love it!

My husband the day after my birthday had to leave and my cousins came down in holiday to spend time with us, it was good to hang out with them. Probably 1 or 2 kilos more but it doesn’t matter, a diet always starts on Monday. I cannot believe my blog is turning 1 year old, it seems just yesterday that I have started to put down on Word my words…so glad that my readers keep on follow me and my adventures!

And I have to apologize to Askmystyle (http://askmystyle.com/) who gave me an award last week, the beautiful blogger award….I am sorry I am just doing that very slowly! Blogging gives me so many satisfactions, thanks to all!!!!

Thanks to my friend Kajsa I have been nominated! One lovely blog award

8 Aug

I want to say a big thank you to my friend Kajsa (http://kjandersen.wordpress.com/) to have nominated me for the one lovely blog award, this is a real pleasure and great achievement in my first year of blogging, I want to thank Kajsa and all the friends who read my blog and support me no matter what.

To pass on the award here are the rules:

The Rules for these Awards are as Follows (I am going to leave out the Very Inspiring Blogger Award & the Versatile Blogger Award)

1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them.

2. Share 7 random facts about yourself.

3.  Nominate 8 for the One Lovely Blog Award

and leave a comment on their site to let them know. Also be sure to include the award logo to your post. 

I am going to change slightly  the rules and just nominate the blogs I enjoy most for the One Lovely Blog Award. Nevertheless there are too many blogs I follow and I enjoy to fill those 8 spots, so if you didn´t make into my list – please don´t worry. I do appreciate your blog anyway.

Those random facts: 

1. I have an addiction I can’t get rid of, I cannot live without Chapstick lip balm mint flavour, I can go mad if I don’t have it in my pockets!

2. While in the US I tried to speak with an American accent…everyone laughed at me and recognize my Italian accent straight away!

3. One day I wish I can have the time to write my own recipe book and see it being published

4. I can never fall asleep at night and as a consequence I can never leave the bed in the morning, unfortunately I get very grumpy if I wake up in the wrong way

5. Maybe because I am getting old… I just watch cooking TV programmes and I love them!

6. I fly a lot but I am terrified of  take off, landing, turbolences and transatlantic journeys…you wouldn’t enjoy to be sat next to me!

7. I´m not the fittest person in the world….I force myself to work out at the gym but I am very lazy and I’d rather spend time discovering new recipes, going to the supermarket and cook interesting dinners!
