Two months to Christmas let’s begin the countdown! Obsessed with nails, baking and dogs right now!

25 Oct

Dear readers

I popped into the local garden center a few days ago and I was shocked when Christmas trees, Christmas decorations and lights were in display, how does the time go? I can’t believe we are only two months away, maybe the mild temperatures we are experiencing at the moment don’t struck me like Jingle Bells and Feliz Navidad songs just yet!

Since the last trip away I am all about cooking, as usual, diligently going to the gym twice a week (rather strange for me!) and despite I was never that bothered before since my birthday I have become obsessed with nails and since I started to have my manicure done with Shellac, oh my a new world opened for me and my nails say thanks a lot!

I have been biting my nails on an off basically all my life and to find an nail polish that lasts and makes my nail stronger, it was a revelation!!

I am still cooking and baking a lot, experimenting and sometimes I even follow recipes fully, which is quite a novelty for me, I do like add my own taste to things! And can you believe that in less than a month Coco is going to be 2 years old? She is still a crazy dog, eating everything she finds around (a few days ago was my usb key, business cards, lip balm…and of course plastic bottles ), I must say it is a joy to have her around that she makes my day always happy!

Have a great weekend everybody

I am counting the days till Miami and I am really looking forward to that! Roll on Monday, we can’t wait to leave the Kingdom behind

Dear readers

I’m sorry it has been a while since last time I posted on the blog, as I said before we are working here at home to renovate the interiors and we are constantly busy on that, I am constantly busy on the dog that now has decided to rip apart everything, rugs, mats and even the curtains, when is she going to get over that???And at the moment I am constantly busy thinking about going away on Monday…how many sleep till??? I hate thinking how autumn like the weather is here and I love to think how nice and warm it is in Miami… Plus doesn’t help the fact that my tan has completely faded and that my local sun bed shop has closed for renovations…not good timing!

Halloween has gone by, we “celebrated” it enjoying a night out in Brighton but still, it wasn’t the same of Lincoln road…am I slightly obsessed? Yes I am!! I look forward to lounge by the pool, enjoying the sunshine, enjoy the time with our friends and I can’t wait to eat some Cuban food…I made the Anglo-Italian version of Vaca Frita last week, tasty, but not as tasty as Versailles!

Enjoy the rest of your week guys and speak with you from the Sunshine State next week!

Hello everyone

I am really sorry about the delay on posting again but the past week has been crazy, really crazy! I postponed my return in the UK for a few days so at the moment I am at home in Miami on my own, my husband went back yesterday and our friend who was here helping us sorting the house left on Wednesday and we have been non-stop all week! Nice night out on Halloween night but after that it has been all about decorating (painting) the house, trying to get the pool sorted, trying to deal with people…I discovered today that Mañana is the favourite word of Hispanic people around here…do not do today what you can do tomorrow!! It might be a way of life here but we are not that used to that and I am struggling to accept it…I finally tried to relax with manicure/pedicure just off Brickell and SW 8Th street….I loved being pampered after ten days of painting, cleaning, washing and cooking…I might even be able to put my bikini on in the next few days!!! Well we had some nice times as well, I went to the Red Bull FlugTag event in Miami and I loved it, we went for nice dinners and drinks out on the beach, it was hard work but we really did enjoy the time together! A few pictures to follow….I will try to keep the blog more updated even from this side of the pond!

The best place for Halloween in planet earth, Miami Beach is unbeatable!!

1 Nov

I have never seen so many people dressed up ready to have fun just up and down the street with the best costumes/fancy dress ever…I have seen a mad hatter that looked better than Jonny Depp in Alice in Wonderland, I have seen a few Dictators, lots of Wonder woman, snow white, sexy nurse and policewoman….even a guy dressed as a sofa!!!! Lincoln Road in South Beach was busier than in New year’s eve and I loved to see the people just enjoying themselves, taking pictures with each other, having a dance and a drink….I love Miami even more as usual!!! I am going to show you some pictures right now and for sure next year I will have a proper costume and not just horror make up on!!!  xxx
