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

The first thing to do when in Italy? Espresso is my must

How can you not fall in love for Villa del Balbianello? good enough to film Casino Royale and Star wars…good enough for me!

Sorry for NOT party rocking…back into the wonderland for a few day and off we go, Miami here we come again!

2 Mar

Hello everyone,

I am really sorry I have been very busy in the last few days, been driving around a lot, been out with friends, been helping out my husband’s business using the social media…god bless facebook and twitter, been collecting my new car…but my husband keeps on taking it so I haven’t driven it yet…grrrr! Been to the hairdresser…been to the gym, been to the beautician…and finally the weekend is here and Monday morning we are off to Miami, I cannot wait!!!

I will bring the latest recipe’s book with me to eat in sometimes, Gino d’Acampo’s book is amazing!!

My latest creation was spaghetti with red chillies, prawns, white wine, basil and rocket….amazing…ly spicy but good!!!

So let’s post some pictures…

Before…

and after…very light highlights I must say!

Checking at home the result…

pre Miami pedicure

Driving through a foggy Brighton today

and unfortunately I was running late so I had to be quick…not anymore please!

Today is one of those days…

28 Feb

Today is one of those days…you have everything you want, everything you need, but, there is a but…there is that shadow of “I’m not completely 100% happy because something does not go as planned”. Nothing to do with love, nothing to do with family, nothing to do with health, just something…that bothers you.

But I take this is life, isn’t it? Trouble is I haven’t got an “in between” status, I’m black or white, I’m so happy or so sad, I’m so sweet or I’m so bitch, or as Katy Perry would say I’m so hot or so cold, yes or no, in or out, up or down…

So, why don’t I talk about something that can cheer me up? Let’s talk about food then! I bought for Valentine’s Day an Italian recipe book for my husband but I must admit that I’m using it quite a lot…last night at the Collins’s House we had mushrooms stuffed with gorgonzola and honey, thanks Gino D’acampo! Followed by turkey breast in breadcrumbs with lentils in a curry sauce…let’s plan another dish then..I think somehow I was born wearing an apron!
