Low cost shopping, great fun…and good excuse to escape from my lonely wonderland

25 Apr

As you know I haven’t had much to do recently and this fact has actually started to bother me a bit, the weather has been horrible recently, rain non-stop since last week, been working out at the gym every other day but, I start to feel frustrated and I cannot wait to go away on Monday. Is just me or is it normal feel like the time is just flying by…and despite and I’m not busy at all I arrive at the evening thinking: – Oh shit I haven’t done that, oh yes I must do that tomorrow…come on turn back time I need more hour during the day…looking for a job is exhausting, plus when no one even bother to reply…even more frustrating!

Today I woke up and it was raining, and raining, and raining. I keep on seeing rabbits everywhere, every time I look out of the window there is a bit of wildlife going on, I will start to talk to them soon…and it was still raining, and raining and raining. I have to do something today just to take my mind off things for a bit so when around 12 stopped to rain for a bit (MIRACLE) I went down to Brighton for some Low Cost Shopping down in the high street and I was pleasantly pleased with myself!

I don’t get why lots of people slag off most of the high street shops, Primark? For chavs and poor people! New look? Not good! Topshop? Cheap shop! H&M? polyester a go go…hang on….are all British people millionaires right now? Because I heard this morning on the radio England is in recession again and unfortunately right now designer is off limits for my wallet so why not?

Monday we are off again to Miami (YEAH!) and I just needed some basic t-shirts…well actually as usual I did not need a thing but I found a few interesting bits anyway!

Electric blue shorts? Yeah! As a huge fan of Rihanna … I needed that t-shirt!   And what about some LMFAO? Party rock! And the espadrilles? They are taking me right back to my childhood! So Miami…low cost I will come over!

Sunday, another lazy day in the countryside…I think I still have jet lag’s issues!

22 Jan

Sunday morning, and despite 4 noisy teenagers at home, we both slept until 10am…cannot believe my luck!

Breakfast on a Sunday morning…cappuccino, croissant, orange juice, and painting the kitchen.

Sunday lunch, one pub was too busy so we went to another one, and we enjoyed some good food and drinks (fuck the diet it’s the weekend)

Back home…ready to relax on the sofa with another drink…and what about tomorrow?

It’s just another manic Monday!!

Keep calm and carry on style frames…crazy in love for it!!!

17 Dec

Keep calm and carry on. So inspirational, and so pretty in so many different colours and in so many different designs. A massive thing around England, and I love it.

But yesterday I found something even prettier than these slogans, walking around the shops in Brighton in a shop I love called England at Home  I found the local “keep calm style” frames about the towns around Brighton area, and of course I bought one for us to bring to Miami, just to remember where we live:

Brighton rocks

Ditchling, common? Town just around the corner

Hove, actually

Eastbourne to be wild

This is the one I got for us!!

They even do costumized ones, as you can find out on the website

Not in the high street

What about a donkey frame? My husband calls me donkey in such a lovely way, I might find this frame between my Christmas present!

In the meantime,  you can listen to the Christmas donkey song, thinking about me!

Have a good weekend!

Everyone loves some early Christmas presents!

16 Dec

It’s Thursday the 15th December (well it’s actually the 16th when everyone will read this post), 10 days to Christmas, and the town is desert, how crazy is that? I spent 5 hours in office without take my lunch break so I could go out earlier to meet up with my husband to finish off some unfinished business…the latest Christmas presents for the family!!

I can’t believe that Brighton was so empty today around the shops in the lanes, ok the credit crunch, the recession, the Eurozone, Italian economy going downhill like Greece…but come on it’s Christmas it happens just once a year! Make the people you love happy and make the retailers even happier! I love my husband so much: he’s loving, caring, and with an amazing taste (he cannot be British I swear!!!) today I got my Christmas present from him, a gorgeous pair of dark brown leather and fur All Saints boots…when my best friend Anna will see them she will collapse!!

Love to get Christmas presents before Christmas; it makes me feel so excited! I cannot reveal the Christmas present I got for my hubby for obvious reasons (he reads my blog) but I tell you they will be LV related, can’t say anything else! Last night I got some more early Christmas presents from my mother in law, love the selection of different teas, the mini rose champagne, the pink truffles, the Cowshed products…oh my I’m like a child on Christmas day, but I’m not a child anymore, and it’s not Christmas yet!!!

It has been two weeks since we met up for dinner with our friends Joe and Becky when the invited us over for a lovely homemade dinner, I have just been so busy that I didn’t have the time to post the pictures yet! Joe…your Thai green curry was good, but your baileys cheesecake as out of this world!!!

Happy Friday to everyone!

My week is nearly over

29 Sep

A busy day at work, a bad headache (this time I do blame the PMS), the British hotwave or Indian summer, a suitcase to pack, a dinner party to prepare…what a day! Still feeling a bit upside down, still thinking about the wind of change I was talking about yesterday, but do you know what? I don’t have time right now to have a meeting with myself and sort myself out and decide what I want, I just want to enjoy my evening with our friends, fly back home tomorrow and enjoy my family and my friends as much as I can, I’m going to leave everything behind and carry on, come on it’s written everywhere, keep calm and carry on, or as I prefer keep calm and put the kettle on! How hot is today I can’t believe that, people where enjoying the brighton pavilion park and the beaches, I was just walking around as usual!! Dinner tonight will be cooked by my husband in collaboration with nigella’s book…it will be good! I’ll keep you posted, with the behind the scenes! Have a great evening you all.

Stay awake…for the longest

1 Sep

I must say, I’m not a morning person, if I could I would stay in bed until 12 every single day, but unfortunately I can’t! For some strange reason I woke up with a song in my mind this morning at 8, and it doesn’t want to go away, maybe because Example mentions about chase the rabbit in wonderland 😉

Love it this morning

It’s a beautyful day for the 1st of Semptember, I love to see the sunshine out in the garden, so I have been awake since 8, I worked from home, now I have to run to do some things and after back to work in Brighton, busy day…but soon I will be away…

Have a good day everyone
