2 years of being married, hot British summertime in progress, a blogging competition won, good weekend just flew by and I am going to fly away on Monday again!

16 Jul

happy second wedding anniversary

Hello dear readers

I cannot believe I have been married for 2 years already! Lots of friends texted me and messaged me on facebook today to remind me our gorgeous wedding day on Lake Como…as someone suggested we should all go back there for a party to celebrate…do you think George Clooney will be so kind to hand me the keys of his villa? I wish!!!

We had such a good weekend  celebrating the combined stag and Hen do of a couple of friends, we watched the polo match, we drank, we danced…and we did sweat a lot, I can’t complain anymore about the British weather then! Sunday was a heavy day standing up all day at Goodwood Festival of Speed…I walked so far around the show that at one stage my right ankle got so swollen I could barely walk….hopefully not a beginning of cankles please!!

I woke up on Monday with the news that I have won the blogging competition set up by Milla Grace, a gourgeous boutique in Brighton so, really pleased with myself I went into town to meet the owners and collect my prize, a beautiful Trim detail jacket in mint from Almost Famous…I am so happy and I want to thanks Milla Grace and wishing all the best to this newly open boutique in the heart of the Brighton Lanes!!!

Easy week ahead just to enjoy the sunshine and off again on Monday for two weeks with the family in Miami…but let’s show you some pictures of the weekend!

I left my heart on Lake Como….again!!!

17 Oct

Hello everyone I am very sorry but I couldn’t write over the weekend, I left my laptop at home intentionally to enjoy the time on Lake Como…and I really did!!!

My weekend started Friday morning when we landed at Milan Malpensa airport, my gorgeous niece and her granddad where there to wait for me. How lovely to see again my beautiful 16 months old Martina, and her panda of course! After this quick meeting we got our rental car, the same smart I have in the UK, even the same colour and we headed to the lake!!! It has been cold, very cold this weekend and I wasn’t prepared for that, not enough warm clothes with us and I just managed to buy a long jumper/dress…I was aiming to a pair of Christian Loubotin ankle boots but the price tag unfortunately was too high for the Collins!!!  Lots of food, lots of friends around and lots of walking!!! I was so excited when on Friday afternoon we drove to Laglio, I saw George Clooney’s house!! I know I’m such a tourist sometimes but I really needed to see it, amazing villa, but very small and silent town, and I left my heart there again, what a beautiful panoramas around the lake area!

The weekend went down well, apart when I had a panic attack when my friends during the Sunday race flipped the boat…I got so scared! Luckily nothing serious happened and they are both ok, I’m not used anymore to the powerboat racing environment…it was good to be back in again after a while! Here we are some pictures… see you soon again Lake Como!

Busy day but my week is over!

13 Oct

I have been arguing all day with the Vodafone customer service, I could not believe the rudeness of some people and the politeness of others… I’d like something in between please! Blackberry now is working but I’m still using the old device because the new one is fucked up, new software is good but the phone doesn’t support it very well….so…don’t let me go into again! Back home, back to brighton, dinner for two, two suitcases to pack and a very early night…as if I could fall asleep at 9pm…tomorrow morning at 5.30 we are off to Italy for the weekend, not my hometown this time…we are going to cernobbio, lake como, actually the clooney side of the lake, I cannot wait!!! Probably I won’t be able to update the blog day by day, sorry about that I will do a better version on monday with lots of pictures!!! Well…I wish (a bit early) a good weekend to everyone!! X

PS: just came back from Brighton, we discovered a place where they sell every type of cheese….. so we enjoyed a big cheese platter and a bottle of red wine, and of course I had to drive back home…but I’m here, so all it’s good!!!
