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

Strange bird around Miami Beach Marina

Waiting for the sunshine…

The view in the dark over Brickell Avenue

lots of rain down in Coconut Grove

bad traffic is everywhere

so pleased to see 50 shades of grey in spanish!!

Coconut Grove, Key Largo, Islamorada, Key west was a bit too far…now I get what they mean with BOATING IN PARADISE! IN LOVE FOR THE FLORIDA KEYS

8 May

We came back last night after two gorgeous days spent in paradise, and I mean paradise! Hot, sunny, gorgeous….good friends, good boat, good food, good drinks, nothing else matters when you combine all these ingredients!

Left on Sunday morning from Coconut Grove, arrived at Gilbert’s in Key Largo to enjoy lunch and some good pinacolada, next stop was the Postcard Inn in Islamorada via the sandbanks close to the Tiki Bar….so beautiful around there!!!

Yesterday morning after a good fat breakfast we left but we didn’t go far, minor problem to the steering wheel that got sorted a few hours later, few more hours in the sunshine….and 8pm back at Coconut Grove…plus when you finish two days in paradise with a slice of KEY LIME PIE…nothing can go wrong!!!!

Still have some good memories, vacation is over and we think about the good times! Miami I heart you

16 Mar

Touched down back to the UK this morning after some cranberry and vodka cocktails, the flight delayed and some Valium…never slept that well on a plane I couldn’t believe it!

I still have some good memories and still lots of pictures to show, so let’s start!

Good moijto at lunchtime in Coconut Grove, followed by a super good burger

My husband makes great moijtos…strawberry one from me!

Tuesday night is Delano night

Another night here, let’s get ready

White or red sangria?

After all this…it’s time for a Cuban coffee

Sunshine, wind, boats, rough sea, red skin…the vacation is nearly over…damn!

13 Mar

The time in Miami just goes so fast that I can’t keep up, I feel like someone is making my watch going faster than normal, trying to enjoy every single moment because soon it’s going to be over, don’t want to go back home! Talking about stealing my time, I did not know that the clock was changing this Sunday just gone. Woke up, 9am, I thought we slept longer than normal, checked my watch, oh stupid watch it stopped an hour ago!!! Kim’s watch the same…and we got more confused. Got in the car, the time was different again…we stopped a guy : Excuse me…what time is it? Did the clock change last night? YEP….he probably thought Stupid Foreigners!

Been boating around Miami, further up and down again to the sandbanks close to Key Biscayne…and unfortunately yesterday just after fill the boat up with fuel  something broke…back to the marina and bye bye boat see you in 6 weeks after she gets repaired!

Been again to our favourite local restaurant, Barceloneta, I love the food there as you can see from the following pictures! I promise I will keep the blog more updated when I go back home, here I’m still struggling with the internet connection…shame I won’t have much to say when I will be back! I don’t want to think about now…the only thing I am looking forward to is go back to visit my friend who just had a baby today, congratulations to Becki and Jonny and Imogen…I cannot wait to meet you!!!
