Sunshine, upgraded car and online shopping….the Anna in her wonderland chronicles

10 Mar

Dear readers

I hope you all had a very nice weekend, here in the south east the weather has been glorious and we enjoyed being outdoors and going out…goodbye winter and welcome spring, please last!

Last Monday we collected my new car, which I am very pleased to drive around, I am just a bit concerned by the size of it. My first car (in Italy) was a Smart, I had a Smart when I moved to England (2 seats), we bought an Audi A1 two years ago (4 seats) and now we just upgraded myself to a 7 seats…I think I can get pregnant now that I have a big car! 😉

In the past week I tried to work hard at the gym…failing! But me and Coco enjoyed long walks in the country that should still count as a workout…please allow me this! The passion for baking hasn’t gone and my last creation was a recipe that I highly customised … chocolate cake with Frangelico liquor and hazelnut…so tasty!

But for some strange reason despite all my baking I still look quite skinny and I can’t believe I managed to squeeze myself into a size 12/13 years denim shorts from H&M…bring it on sunshine!!!

I feel rather green at the moment…thanks to my latest high street purchase in Italy, a pair of green heels which they perfectly match one of my cashmere sweater…but anyway let’s not talk too much about wintery clothes…I am going to be in Miami in a week time, bring it on Miami Music Conference and bring it on summery online shopping! (all done this morning…to beat the Monday blues)

2 years of being married, hot British summertime in progress, a blogging competition won, good weekend just flew by and I am going to fly away on Monday again!

16 Jul

happy second wedding anniversary

Hello dear readers

I cannot believe I have been married for 2 years already! Lots of friends texted me and messaged me on facebook today to remind me our gorgeous wedding day on Lake Como…as someone suggested we should all go back there for a party to celebrate…do you think George Clooney will be so kind to hand me the keys of his villa? I wish!!!

We had such a good weekend  celebrating the combined stag and Hen do of a couple of friends, we watched the polo match, we drank, we danced…and we did sweat a lot, I can’t complain anymore about the British weather then! Sunday was a heavy day standing up all day at Goodwood Festival of Speed…I walked so far around the show that at one stage my right ankle got so swollen I could barely walk….hopefully not a beginning of cankles please!!

I woke up on Monday with the news that I have won the blogging competition set up by Milla Grace, a gourgeous boutique in Brighton so, really pleased with myself I went into town to meet the owners and collect my prize, a beautiful Trim detail jacket in mint from Almost Famous…I am so happy and I want to thanks Milla Grace and wishing all the best to this newly open boutique in the heart of the Brighton Lanes!!!

Easy week ahead just to enjoy the sunshine and off again on Monday for two weeks with the family in Miami…but let’s show you some pictures of the weekend!

And on Sunday I am going to Goodwood Festival of Speed, for someone who’s not that keen on cars should be good fun anyway…I actually look forward to that, Sunday should be the busiest day of the 4 days event, sold out for ages…bring it on then!! Me and my husband will be at the Michelin stand next to this gorgeous Audi R8 in chrome…if I forget my mirror I can put make up on just looking it at!

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!!!
