My summer is over, luckily just for over a month! Anna in her wonderland is back in the Kingdom to carry on projects

Dear readers

The weekend is over, summer is over, autumn/fall is here and I suddenly feel cold, fancying a glass of red wine in the evening and to have the log fire on, soon without even noticing it will be Halloween and soon enough even Christmas, where does the time fly all the time??

Miami seems a long time ago, the weather unfortunately wasn’t the best in September, as our friends say “ You bring the rain over from England every time”…not fun!

Now we are back in the country to be reunited with coco, to carry on wedding planning projects, to bake a lot and to wait for the next trip…here you can see some pictures of the vacation, while wait for the next one where my best friend will join us, and I cannot wait!

Cruising around at night

Miami, where we belong. The resume of the perfect vacation from Anna in her wonderland

1 Apr

Hello readers

It has ben years now but there is still something I don’t understand completely, there is a connection, I have a deep connection with the city of Miami that I can’t explain in words, I can only tell you that Miami is my home, the place where I feel better than anywhere else in the world. It must be the sunshine, it must be the people, it must be the atmosphere, it must be something that makes me so happy that I can’t even explain, but please, keep on going!

We came back from ten amazing days in the sunshine and despite the weather is quite good here I miss already our good times spent away, going out boating, riding our bikes in the morning, lounging by the pool in the sunshine, going out for amazing dinners around town, watching the peacocks walking around the yard, trying to learn some Spanish, hanging out with good friends, oh no I can’t  believe it’s over! Here we go some pictures of our good times.

With Love

Hello readers,

I must admit I haven’t turned my laptop on for ten days…I couldn’t face to stop enjoying our good times here but I had too…to download all the pictures and of course to write this post! I love Miami more every time I come back here as you all know, and I am dreading to the idea of leaving here on Friday night!

Boating, shopping, drinking, eating, relaxing, chilling…one of the best vacation of all times!

I might show you some pictures then…

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

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!

Shine bright like a diamond in the sky this weekend….

28 Sep

Dear readers,

I am really sorry but the past week has been a bit crazy, 4 days in Miami of very bad weather and just a few pictures taken, no fancy nights out or spinning around, just been working! Came back home on Tuesday, back to work, thousands of things to do and not had much time and not much to say…jet lag and PMS are not good subject for blogging I believe! I have been listening non-stop to the new Rihanna’s song in the past few days and I absolutely love it, can’t wait for her new album to come out and storm the charts.

Shine bright like a diamond…doesn’t leave my mind!

How’s everyone up to? Any good plans for the weekend? My weekend will be sleeping cooking and maybe work out…or maybe not! I show you anyway the really few snaps I took while away, just on the blackberry! Have a great weekend everyone!

Forgot to say…I finally registered the domain for my blog, you can find me at

Annainherwonderland.com from now on!

A quick update on my status, still alive just very busy!

29 Jul

I think after the past few busy days I should add the category Moving on my blog. Yes we did, we moved from our South Beach condo to a different area And despite the hard work we went through I love the new area already, I am even driving around and love it! Will update better next week!!!
