Clearly time flies when you are having fun! Six months later Anna is back

25 Aug

Dear readers

I seriously couldn’t believe that it has been six months since my last post, where does time go?? Apologies for the lack of posts, I just haven’t realised I have been on the “missing blog person list” for such a long time, thanks to wordpress for reminding me by email on Monday!annainnherwonderland and coco.jpeg

AS I said clearly time goes by too quickly when you are having a good time (Dear Madonna I love your confession on a dance floor album, but how can you say Time goes by…so slowly?! that’s a lie!!)

I have turned 32 last week, so this is the proof that time flies quite fast,as I am not 25 anymore.

I have been travelling and cooking, and the usual stuff as normal but somehow I forgot about the blog, sorry! I have been back and forth from Miami a few times, went to the South of France for a lovely family holiday and went to the Italian riviera to celebrate my husband’s birthday and to spend time with my family, in between aperitifs and dinners!

On a lovely relaxing evening out with Coco overlooking the sunset with a glass of prosecco I suddenly realised, it is time to post something on the blog. I keep well as usual, just one year older damn it…I do have the feeling that people always overshare with social media, me included, and  probably that’s why I haven’t felt like posting for a while, but I am back with some amazing memories of travels  and good times to share with you.

To the next post….hopefully sooner than later!

Welcome to my February, time to plan more trips & stop the New year resolutions / January nonsense, #BeHappy

1 Feb

Dear readers

I am sorry I haven’t been posting recently, I have been too busy settling back into the British winter after the holidays spent in Italy and Miami, I am back, for a bit, as usual.

The Christmas time back home with friends and family was amazing, good times, lots of laugher and lots of food involved…not that many people can say they had an 8 hours long Christmas lunch…I can! And when you are about to give up and say Thank you guys but we have been sat for 7 hours, ok the company is great but…And they stop you saying: Next course it the Italian cheesecake (gorgonzola, brie, mascarpone and walnut cake)…followed by panettone and pandoro with coffee mascarpone, what did I do? Just gave upend kept on eating!!!

Italians express their love with food, and that’s what my family does best and I love that, overindulging over Christmas is great but of course it can’t be the normal routine, but what about the pressure everybody gets put under between the New Year and the end of January? Resolutions, dry January, start working out, be kind to people, get better at something…I mean take it easy!

Life is all about balance, we only have one life so please enjoy and make the most of it…plus shall we talk about what happens at the beginning of January?! The release of fitness DVDs!!! Oh My Lord…is that something worse than that? Z-list celebrities who used to be fat and wobbly and suddenly they become gym bunnies, personal trainers addict, food connoisseurs and they tell you: I lost 3 stone, 19 kg, 42 pounds whichever weight conversion floats your boat, YOU CAN DO IT TOO, in the comfort of your living room!! Yes right people exercising in front of the telly in their workout gear, it will happen for a week and they will get bored and quit! Really I can do it too? And you would tell me what to eat too then to reach the perfect body? I don’t follow recipe books, I always add my own touch, let alone to listen to you whoever you are, famous or not, you ain’t a dietologist so why would I bother?!I am very happy with my height & my weight so please, social media stop bombarding us with Are You Beach Body Ready type of messages? Lots of people get sucked in!

Anyway this is my 1st February rant…I am sure I have posted something similar in the past few beginning of the years, this is what I think and I stick by…Italian Style!

Did I mention that I received a pasta machine for Christmas? I love it!!! So if somebody says No Carbs are allowed, my reply can only be one…bugger off!

And of course I am not criticising people who exercise a lot or go to the gym or whatever, not at all, I love fitness classes like body balance, pilates, yoga and body pump, I do lots of them once or twice a week, or once every fortnight it depends…I just get bored easily and I can’t stick to something that long, that’s why I like to do different things to keep me motivated, I do it just to keep busy and toned…but if I don’t do it for a day it ain’t the end of the world, I just go for an hour long dog walk/run, it’s always exercise!

Going back to the travelling side of my post…we had a great time in Miami over new year, as usual, and I seriously cannot wait to be back in a week to escape from the cold weather, it makes such a difference to have some sunshine in the winter, total mood lifting!

And now let’s just have a look at what went on in the past few months

Christmas and the holidays between Italy & Florida, going back to the cold British weather, birthday with friends & toddlers, and a dog photoshoot!

with love

A casual weekend in Ibiza, just in between trips! And on Monday from Ibiza to Miami, let’s enjoy my never ending summer

From-Miami-2-Ibiza

Dear readers

we are back from a fantastic weekend spent in Ibiza watching the races, hanging out with good friends and having lots of fun, shame that now we are both sick, stuck with cold and flu which hopefully it will go away soon, I don’t like being sick at all!

Lots of healthy cooking for me right now, lots of baking to keep me busy and less bored…and getting ready to go back to Florida on Monday, Tinie Tempah would be proud of me even if we are doing Ibiza to Miami instead than Miami to Ibiza.

I can show you some pictures of the great weekend away…I missed Ibiza, it has been too long!

18 Aug

annainherwonderland turns 30 blog post august 14 (23)

Dear readers

in less than 24 hours it will be my birthday, exactly 9 days after my husband’s birthday and we cannot wait to go to London to celebrate the event with our good friends, I can’t still believe the number…it feels like yesterday when I turned 18, or 20, or 24…30 seems such a big and imposing number!

I have had a few busy days last week, we had some friends over from the States and we have been enjoying the English countryside, with lots of food and drinks…that’s why I have been Booze Free since Thursday, but I so look forward to crack the rose’ champagne tonight to start the celebrations!

annainherwonderland turns 30 blog post august 14 (25)

An Italian trip in a few days, a trip to Ibiza in September…and Miami to come soon enough to keep me busy and look forward the next move. So obsessed with pets and babies at the moment, I went to visit friends last week I and get so happy around the babies and toddler…will it be our turn soon? Hopefully!

I wish you all an amazing week!!!

Annainherwonderland blog post miami vacation july 2014 (31)

Hello dear readers

After 10 days in the hot and humid Miami I am back home, reunited with Coco, struggling with the jet lag, enjoying the beautiful (for the moment) British weather and so looking forward to have my husband back home at the weekend, I wasn’t very happy to start with but thanks to Norwegian airlines I had two more days in Florida due to problems with the plane, luckily I managed to fly back solo without too many problems…I just missed my cousin’s birthday bash in London and the chance to spend time with him and our friends…Bloody Norwegian!!!

The vacation/holiday was hot…hot… and sometimes stormy, so looking forward to go back there in September when, I hope, the weather should be more bearable.

I have some pictures to show you the best bits…and I am getting ready to turn 30 years old in 19 days…I am actually quite paranoid about, I am growing old and it doesn’t help the fact that apparently I cannot pronounce 30 correctly…according to people I sound Irish when I say thirty…I am going to be stuck with the 3 for a while damn it!

Well, let’s not worry about and let’s just think that after the birthday we will go to the Italian Riviera to celebrate the time with my parents and friends…so looking forward to trofie al pesto and industrial quantities of focaccia to eat!

Have a good day you all

The Italian week, the wedding planning, the two lakes, the British sea, the Italian family over, the domestic goddess and the next trip to the land of the free and home of the brave, Anna is keeping busy!

8 Jul

Dear readers

As usual I am really late at posting updates on the blog, sorry guys I lose track of time sometimes! I spent a week in Italy with my family checking out wedding venues for my next bride and groom to be, so pleased to have had the chance to go over the beautiful Lake Como again, work meeting pleasure is always the way forward! And I spent the weekend enjoying time with the family, going clubbing on the other lake, Lake Garda, relaxing and having fun… sometimes just a few days home recharge my batteries so much to keep on going better and stronger!

Back home I keep on feeling like I need to cook and bake all day, yesterday for example I wasn’t feeling my best but suddenly after dinner I thought..I fancy a cake! Opened the fridge, found two large oranges, butter, yogurt and eggs…one hour later we were all eating orange cake!

I have had my family over last weekend where we spent a nice day in Brighton on a beautiful sunny day, shame Coco is in season and we were chased by male dogs on the seafront…and shame a few days after going back into Brighton I curbed my wheel very badly…my husband wasn’t impressed as you all can imagine, my excuse was “I have had the car for 4 months and this is the first time, I am doing quite alright for myself!”

Anyway I felt boring last week so I decided to change my look, so short bob hairstyle with blonde highlights, I am only a month and eleven days from turning 30…I am probably experiencing a beginning of midlife crisis…and between a cup of tea and a walk with the dog we are getting ready for the next Miami trip, only ten days to go!

Have a good week everybody

From Miami to Vegas, our favorite places on earth! Two bloggers join forces on this Traveller style post

12 Apr

Dear readers

Today you are going to read something a bit different than my usual “personal” style, I joined forces with American travel expert Kendra Thornton and we spoke about our favorite places on Earth, Miami for me and Las Vegas for Kendra so we decided to put everything in a blog post! As usual I express my love for the city of Miami and Kendra, a proud mother of three, tells her side of the story about Sin City…which can be enjoyed even with family and kids! I hope you will enjoy this collaboration guys and thanks for reading it.

From Anna in her wonderland

Miami, the melting pot of South Florida

Miami Annainherwonderland (10)

Nowhere else in the world you will be able to see such a big mix of cultures like you can see in Miami, from Cuba to Argentina, from Dominican Republic to Brazil, from Colombia to Italy, from Russia to Turkey, you name a country, you will find citizen from that country in Miami somewhere, guaranteed.

Speaking with a friend once in Miami I heard this: – There is no one person who lives in Miami that is actually born and raised in Miami, everyone has an accent and you will get away much better speaking Spanish than English, or let’s say learn Spanglish it will be easier for you.

I fell in love for Miami the first time I landed there, back in 2007; I still remember the drive from the airport to South Beach, All night long by Lionel Richie was on the radio and just to see the skyscrapers off the causeway made me so happy, so relaxed, so…at home.

You can find everything you want in Miami, at any time of the day and night. Stores open 24/7, clubs and bars in continue expansion everywhere, amazing hotels, posh restaurants, fast boats, luxury boats, celebrities filming reality shows and music videos, designer stores and malls, art fairs, boat shows, exotic cars, if you are up for the holiday of a lifetime, Miami is the place to be.

The party town of South Beach goes even crazier during the Winter Music conference week, that collides with spring break (Easter holidays for American colleges and university) with music events everywhere, international DJs, pool parties and so much fun going on, the perfect setting for an European party-goer.

But what about the language “barrier”? As Italian who moved to the United Kingdom I learnt that everywhere you go in the world the English language should be predominant, or at least everyone will understand you, well you are wrong, this is not happening in Miami.

The city is nicknamed the “Capital of Latin America”, is the second-largest U.S. city (after El Paso, Texas) with a Spanish-speaking majority, and the largest city with a Cuban-American plurality.

Cubano estadounidense is the way forward, all of them live “normally” within the only few real American citizens of Miami, most of them are born and raised in America as American citizens themselves, in most of the cases grandparents or relatives are Cubans, and they switch perfectly from Spanish to English and viceversa, I know a few of them who are Americans with Cubans parents and they have never been to Cuba, how crazy is that?

I love everything about this big city, I love South Beach with all year round tourists everywhere, I like Brickell with its skyscrapers and locals buzzing around, I love Little Havana with all its Cuban and South American restaurants, I adore the pretty area of Coconut Grove with all the marinas where we always hang out with our boat, I love Sunset Drive and its shops and bars, despite the busy US1! I love Key Biscayne and its beaches where it feels like to be in the Caribbean…but where you can still see the Miami skyline…so many things I love about this city that I could keep on writing forever.

After all these years of travelling to Miami and my part time life there I must admit I haven’t learnt Spanish yet, despite people think I am Latino (good old Italian dark skin and hair), but I am trying to get into the different mix of cultures every time, and I will never stop to learn something new every day and open my mind even more…that’s why I love Miami so much.

 Let’s All Go to Vegas This Summer

Going to Vegas has always been one of my favorite and most memorable trips. There’s so much to do, so many places to see and tons of quirky thrills to enjoy. Whether you want to jump in the aquarium with sharks or rock out with KISS as you golf, there are a lot of different shows as well to enjoy while on your trip to the strip. Even when you head outside of Vegas, there’s more to see like the Grand Canyon. If you’re anything like my family and friends, you can’t just settle for seeing a few things.

1. Go Where the Sharks Go

When you think of a desert, sharks, crocodiles, moray eels, jellyfish and piranhas are probably not on your mind, so you probably didn’t know that you could swim with these incredibly mysterious and yet graceful creatures! At Mandalay Bay, you can jump in the shark tank and hang out with 15 species of sharks as well as other terrors of the deep. They’re actually quite interesting to see up close and not nearly as deadly as people make them out to be. You get to learn a lot about these different species while also swimming around them for an up close and personal look.

2. Rock Out with Your Club and KISS

The KISS Mini Golf experience is probably one of my favorite things to do in Vegas with the kids. You get a mini golfing experience that’s completely different than the boring clowns and dinosaurs of other mini golf parks. With giant guitars, animated replicas of the band and lots of music, you’ll get a lot of laughs as you go around the 18-hole course.

3. Quirky Museum Trips

There’s a lot of history in Vegas and some mystery as well. The museums in Vegas really show off the strange history of the town including the Neon Museum, which is a junkyard dedicated to the old neon signs that have been discarded by the hotels and attractions once popular on the strip. There’s also the Discovery Children’s Museum and the National Atomic Testing Museum.

4. Wild Roller Coasters

You may not be able to handle the double corkscrew, double-loop coaster called The Canyon Blaster at The Adventuredome at Circus Circus. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience. There truly is no other roller coaster like this one in the entire world. If you’re going to Vegas with kids, it will be hard not to stop by this theme park.

My family and I enjoy Las Vegas every time we visit, mostly because with so many hotels to stay at and things to do, each experience is different. With so many people traveling to Vegas, user reviews are readily available. Sites like Gogobot make it easy to read these user reviews.

Long time no post, Anna in her wonderland is back! The Miami resume post

6 Dec

Dear readers

Sorry about my late post about my last holiday in Miami, I have been back for 2 weeks and I just now find the time to sit down, go through the pictures and post about. 2 busy weeks back home, with good and bad things that have happened but that now everything is behind us.

Our latest vacation in Miami was so much fun and good times spent with our friends, endless dinner out, boating days, shopping days and lots of laughing involved, I can’t believe it has gone so quickly as usual. I have lots of pictures to show you, days are manic now organising the final renovation at home, organizing Christmas presents for everybody and thinking about my Italian trip in 12 days, and Christmas of course and Miami again, this time with my parents!

Enjoy you all the pictures and have a great weekend!!!!

Here we go!

The sun in my eyes and the floods at my feet, but we love Miami anyway! Having fun despite the tropical storm Andrea going by!

Hello readers

We have been in Miami for 8 days now and despite the weather is not completely on our side (the tropical storm Andrea is going by, with afternoon and evening heavy rain with floods everywhere) but despite this little inconvenient we are enjoyin the time here as usual, without one care in the world!

We have been hanging out with friends, seen friends we haven’t seen for a while, been out on the boat around Biscayne bay, we undressed the boat from its stickers, not raceboat anymore only pleasure!!

We have been cooking endless barbecue, been drinking gallons of alcohol…and of course I have been sick because I am obsessed with food and drinks! We went to the best and funny restaurant in town, Barton G and even our friends loved it, we went for low key but tasty Cuban food at the Latin American cafe ( I can eat la vaca frita de Carne all day long!) and as usual my husband can’t just lay down and relax because he has to have a project in mind all the time, let’s sort the grass in the front yard, let’s fix something…please darling chill!!! Still 5 days to spend here in paradise, there is something about here that I love, I always will and that makes me feel at home. I heart Miami.
