My Italian week is over and I feel it! Bergamo and Milano in my heart and soul, but now I can enjoy the British Summer down in Albion!

1 Jul

Milano duomo

Dear readers

I had such a lovely week back home to visit my family and friends that when on Friday I was about to leave I felt tears coming down, I have been living abroad for nearly five years and I have never struggled to leave so much like this time! Anyway, I am back home with my husband and my gorgeous dog, finally summer has arrived in the Kingdom so I am enjoying long sessions in the garden, walking around town and I have to start to kick my own ass at the gym if I want to see some good results…and to get rid of the hangover caused by the weekend!

I am so pleased with myself today, my freelance collaboration with Spanish Mag Flic Magazine is going well and what a coincidence, in this issue Anna in Her wonderland talks Milano… you can find the link here!

Blogging from a cloudy paradise, probably a tornado is coming, not much sunshine so only retail therapy can save my life!

26 Jun

So many things happened in the past few days that I haven’t actually had time to realise everything, arrived in Miami, went to Bahamas by boat (what a trauma!!!), came back early due to the horrible weather, in Miami again but the weather is not better than Bahamas plus the humidity is crazy….not much to do so we did hit the shops, Aventura mall and Bal Harbor ! In the next few days I will update you all with the pictures from Bimini, met nice people but shame we couldn’t enjoy it totally!!! Just about to hit downtown Miami for some sushi…bring it on!!

That’s what we were supposed to do in Bahamas, not coming back!

Bal Harbor mall, north miami

That’s the closest I will ever go to a pair of Louboutin shoes….

I had a dream….but I went for something for suitable for my pockets!

Summer has finally come, but for how long? Enjoy the tropical Brighton and thinking about memorial weekend in Miami!

25 May

According to weather office and according to what it is written on the paper, this week England is warmer than Hawaii, believe it or not. Well anyway it is so nice going to work just in t-shirt, jeans and flip flops, come back home, have a Pimms on the patio enjoying a bit of sunshine and the view, hopefully it will last for a while! It’s funny walking around town, day 1 everyone was wearing shorts and t-shirt, so you could see lots of skinny, medium and large very pale legs walking up and down on the seafront, day 2 and day 3 the colours have changed…now all the Brits are flashing red legs and bare chests…class!

Anyway I feel in summer mood, I look for espadrilles shoes, vests, wedges and I couldn’t believe my luck 2 days ago, as you all now I got nominated for the blog sunshine award (thanks again girls!) and I went for a walk in the high street. I have been monitoring a certain British shop for 5weeks now, twice I week I went in, walked around every single aisles looking for something specific, and finally on Wednesday my perseverance has finally paid off! I got it!!!

The fish dress Mary Katrantzou style…I saw this dress so many times on fashion magazines in the past few weeks and I needed it, thanks Primark!!! I hope everyone will enjoy the gorgeous weekend, will think about memorial weekend in the US, come on party people!!!

Spring is here guys, let’s enjoy! I feel like I love Lilac today!

21 Mar

What a gorgeous and warm day today. The weather at the moment is perfect, nice and enjoyable that I don’t miss the fact I am not in Miami anymore…I really feel the spring coming and I started to love spending time in the garden (hopefully not when the farmer is around…a bit noisy!), so after have been running errands today I treated myself with a couple of hours break in the garden, just me, a book, a drink and blueberries to eat! How funny my outfit today? Lilac havaianas flip flop, lilac Benetton jumper….I think I can keep my tan in this way!

SPRING IS COMING, YOU SHOULD LOVE MINT COLOURED JEANS THEN! LET’S GET READY FOR THE WEEKEND GUYS

24 Feb

As you all know, I AM NOT a fashion blogger, and as you all know I never will. But yesterday when I saw the sun shining over the fields and the warm temperature coming in through the window I felt like spring was already here…luckily without hay fever yet!

I was going through Look magazine and we I saw this picture I thought: I have the same jeans, just bought them last week in Italy! So… why not make a fool of myself with some pictures? Here we are

Will I be able to walk in this electric blue Topshop shoes again? Let’s bet…

Why not being more comfortable…with pink ballerinas?

The sunshine was incredibly nice yesterday, I was driving around and feeling happy…and let’s think it’s weekend now!!! Enjoy!!

I left my heart in Barbados…but I brought one back! Love Chopard happy diamonds

26 Jan

As you all know I fell in love for Barbados during my honeymoon, the best place to be, so chilled, so relaxed, such a paradise on earth.

On the last day when I discovered that less than 10 minutes away from our hotel there is a luxury mall (Lime grove in Holetown) I couldn’t believe my luck…and when I saw this ring I fell in love with.

Chopard ring from the Happy diamonds collection, thanks my lovely husband!!

Isn’t it beautiful? Somehow it reminds me the gorgeous engagement ring of my friend Shonda…I did not try to copy yours because yours is unbeatable!!!

I know I have been back for a bit now, but the ring was at the local jewellery store to be resized, and now I’m so happy!!!

How can I find the right pair of jeans after my favourite one passed away?

17 Jan

Unfortunately ten days ago when we were away I had to wave farewell to my favorite pair of jeans, I was sad. I bought this Cycle jeans during the sales in 2006, paid a lot and worn them until they went from dark blue to white and I had to give up completely when I sat on the sofa and they broke completely on my bum…luckily I was at home and only my husband saw that.

The trouble now is…I cannot find the right pair of jeans that can fit me properly! Most jeans around the shops are just super skinny, let alone the jeggings…I do not like them, they make me look like I have a Kim Kardashian’s bum!

Shall I scroll through my wardrobe then? Just to remember!

Sisley black and suede colour jeans, skinny, but not too much.

I used to wear Jacob Cohen jeans, still have 3 or 4 pairs that I wear to go to work, a bit faded all of them!

Diesel Matic jean…lovely

This Zara high waist jean from the 2008 season are awesome, I love how they fit my legs, shame that they are not that comfortable…it takes ages to undo the buttons if you need to pee!

One of my last purchases, j brand skinny in emerald green, I love!

Actually yesterday I realized that there are the sales going on at the moment on the high street and I found this jeans in Zara for 14.99, could I leave them there? No way, I didn’t have a pair of brown jeans…shame that I had to buy size 36 instead than my usual 34…hate this 2kg I put on!!

I’m sure I have a few more pairs somewhere, all saints, Hollister or something else. So..have I got enough jeans for the moment? My mum will say yes…but please help me with your jeans recommendations!!!

Fancied a coffee, ended up with a coffee machine! That’s Miami baby!

30 Dec

Hello everyone, sorry about the delay on posting on my blog but yesterday I had to face a 9hour flight, nearly 2hours in the customs queue and a late burger to sort out my jet lag! We are back here, I love Miami so much, I do belong here that’s for sure! Shame that is not as warm as I was planned, today has been cloudy but I’m sure tomorrow is going to be a better day! Breakfast, bank, post office, whole foods, 2 corona beers for lunch, homemade seafood spaghetti…and fell asleep in the cold sunshine for an hour! Fancied a coffee around 5.30, fancied go to the nespresso bar…we couldn’t even sit down at the bar…have you booked a table? They asked…for a coffee?! Of course not…so we looked around and what did we do? Well no coffee machine yet in our Miami condo…best time to get one! And just around the corner we discovered a very cool shop, Adidas SLVR…It does not get better when they have the sales on! Now…blogging time…a pinacolada soon…and dinner out probably where I tried my gaspacho bloody Mary, cannot wait! and tomorrow…is going to be another day…with my husband’s boat here!!! Have a lovely night evening afternoon or whatever is going to be… Jet lag makes my brain a bit slower!xxx

Every woman wants a toy boy for Christmas…why???

15 Dec

When I was 5, my dream was to have a Yorkshire toy terrier…

I had one for 3 hours, he ran up and down my house like a nutter,  did poo all over the rug in my bedroom, stole my dolls and barbies…3 hours later in tears, I decided I didn’t want to have a toy dog. Ever. My experience with toy boys finished badly.

Now all over the paper all you can find is women dating toy boys, the latest one to cause controversy in the United Kingdom is Caroline Flack and Harry Styles from the boy band One Direction (god bless the X factor!), she’s 32, he’s 17.

Is she happy? Is he happy? If the reply is yes, why everyone is commenting on the matter? The only person who should be allowed to comment and say something can only be Harry’s Mum!

The list is never ending, Madonna, Jennyfer Lopez, Demi Moore, Eva Longoria…and I could carry on, but I can’t remember any by now. The toy boy phenomenon has created a new type of woman…the Cougar.

I am imagining a Cougar like a 50 years old lady, corroded by botox, facelifts and liposuction, dress up in a leopard print dress…red nail vanish on super long finger nails…chasing teenagers in the high street…so to me a Cougar is the female version of the boogieman!

I’m only 27, being married for five months…love my husband to bits…but even if I was single I could have never gone out with a younger man, even when I was 15, just thinking to go on a date with someone just a few  months younger always scared me, I could never feel happy and secure, that’s why I always went for older men, the proof is the 14 years gap between me and my husband, that’s ok, I love him, he loves me, age does not matter (when I’m the younger one!).  My cousin got married to a guy 26 years her senior and they are still happily married with beautiful children, my little cousins.  So as usual I’m going out of the subject of my post…Cougars…please carry on to date toy boys…toy boys carry on to enjoy older ladies, but please cougars listen to me:

Have fun…but never make this mistake called Ashton Kutcher.

Dear Demi, you should have stopped to fancy toyboys before marrying one.

How can I have Sympathy For the Devil if he wears Prada Headphones?

6 Dec

I couldn’t believe to my eyes when I walked in Prada store in Venice on Sunday…Prada headphones, how crazy is that?

These Prada headphones comes with the usual trimmings of the Prada logo on the earcups themselves as well as the Prada triangle featured on the complimentary storage/carrying bag for the heaphones. Besides the presence of the Prada label, these on-ear headphones look pretty much identical to the Bose OE2 or the Phiaton PS320 headphones, popular on-ear headphones amongst travellers.

They must be damn good with £400 / $ 585 price tag! In store I saw the ladies versions as well, in pretty light pastel colours

Plus I saw the gift section with cute and funny teddy bears inspired key olders and charms…

and look at a prefect key ring for me…

I think I will finish off my Christmas shopping online…the town is crazy busy on lunchtime and you cannot shop without being pushed…And because I have started to feel the festive theme…for you my favourite Christmas song…how gorgeous was George Michael in this video???
