The atmosphere around was great, the bags we were carrying around were heavy and it was a long but great day! Shopping sorted…now let’s just wait to be Christmas!

Happy belated birthday to me and happy birthday to my blog!!! Holidaying in the Italian Riviera with family not enjoying too much the heat wave, luckily back in cold United Kingdom!

24 Aug

Hello dear readers,

I am sorry to have not written on the blog for such a long time but I was enjoying too much my holiday with my parents, relatives and cousins down in the Italian Riviera, now I am back home and I have more time to keep you updated with my realities…I am growing old, last Sunday (19th August) I turned 28…oh my!!! I had a lovely day with my husband and my family going to the beach, sunbathing, eating, drinking…drinking again and so on! I love so much that part of Italy as I said before, I spent so many summers there when I was a child that the place has so many memories for me…love it!

My husband the day after my birthday had to leave and my cousins came down in holiday to spend time with us, it was good to hang out with them. Probably 1 or 2 kilos more but it doesn’t matter, a diet always starts on Monday. I cannot believe my blog is turning 1 year old, it seems just yesterday that I have started to put down on Word my words…so glad that my readers keep on follow me and my adventures!

And I have to apologize to Askmystyle (http://askmystyle.com/) who gave me an award last week, the beautiful blogger award….I am sorry I am just doing that very slowly! Blogging gives me so many satisfactions, thanks to all!!!!

Living the Miami dream, a minute is cloudy a minute is sunny! Anyway I am enjoying the last full day!

29 Jun

Hello readers,

I’m sure I have mentioned before how much I love spent time here in Miami beach, the atmosphere is always great and it makes me feel happy just seeing the sunshine…well unfortunately in the last few days the weather hasn’t been great and I do feel it! I love everything about Florida, but I think I went to paradise…and I mean Bimini island in the Bahamas, and I nearly felt sick with boredom because I was in an amazing place but because the weather was so bad I felt so claustrophobic and I need to get the hell out of there, fast! I love going around Miami and downtown with the boat…but the weather now is so changeable and you don’t want to risk to take the boat out and get caught in the middle of a storm, to go and come back from Bimini I felt so scared that I need to be sedated with Valium tablets and motion sickness tablets that I still feel drugged now nearly a week later!!! Miami we heart you…the only good and bad thing is I keep on cooking lunch at home and we keep on going out in the evening enjoying the local restaurant… My husband said I am developing body body dysmorphia but I am sure I am getting fat and I need to go on a diet as soon as we go back! Had a new haircut to my favorite salon in south beach (Prive salon at the shore club hotel, I love so much my french hairdresser Marc!!) and tomorrow unfortunately we fly back home, but in two weeks time it’s Saint Tropez baby!!!

Love you all.

Sadly, time is up again! Packing time but really not feel like to leave, as usual!

10 May

Ten days again have gone too quickly, I’m here again with a suitcase in front of me and I really do not want to leave! Miami we heart you….

The last few days have been amazing, enjoying good times with friends, going out, discover new places…see you again in 5 weeks! As soon I will be back tomorrow I will post more pictures! Bye Bye SoBe!

Coconut Grove, Key Largo, Islamorada, Key west was a bit too far…now I get what they mean with BOATING IN PARADISE! IN LOVE FOR THE FLORIDA KEYS

8 May

We came back last night after two gorgeous days spent in paradise, and I mean paradise! Hot, sunny, gorgeous….good friends, good boat, good food, good drinks, nothing else matters when you combine all these ingredients!

Left on Sunday morning from Coconut Grove, arrived at Gilbert’s in Key Largo to enjoy lunch and some good pinacolada, next stop was the Postcard Inn in Islamorada via the sandbanks close to the Tiki Bar….so beautiful around there!!!

Yesterday morning after a good fat breakfast we left but we didn’t go far, minor problem to the steering wheel that got sorted a few hours later, few more hours in the sunshine….and 8pm back at Coconut Grove…plus when you finish two days in paradise with a slice of KEY LIME PIE…nothing can go wrong!!!!

I am a still a sunseeker, chasing the perfect tan, but it ain’t easy on a boat! Miami is amazing, love it here every time more!

5 May

There is nothing else to say apart that this place makes me so happy. Beautiful places, beautiful people….and me trying to speak italian-spanish-english!!! Shall I just show you some pictures? They just speak for themselves! And happy cinco de mayo, I won’t drink any tequila like all the Hispanic here…I could throw up straight away!!!!

I am a sunseeker, where the hell is the Miami sunshine? Enjoying the not very good weather…but don’t stop believing in the American dream!

2 May

Hello everyone, we made to Miami, and of course as soon as we come over the weather gets bad, a bit unlucky but nothing we can do to improve it unfortunately, apart being connected 24/7 on the weather channel…

Being running errands with foundation on my face… I look too pale right night and if the sunshine does not come out tomorrow I will have to stop at Tan V in Alton road…boat is going to be ready to roll soon, enjoying the design district today…it was a pretty good day overall! More updates coming soon.

Iguana walking around the garden anyone?

Feeling the spring, love the warm temperature….and I can’t wait to wear my new bikinis! H&M swimwear collection

23 Mar

I was still in vacation last week when my best friend Anna texted me: Dear friend, you must go to H&M, I just bought two amazing bikinis, pictures to follow! This week when I finally had a bit of time to sat down with my laptop, I thought: I’ll go to have a look and of course, I liked the swimwear collection immediately and I ordered 2 bikinis straight away, still waiting for them to turn up but there is no rush, I need them in 38 days! Do you want to have a look? These two are the one I bought

And this one is in my wish list…so pretty!

Going to hit the high street again today, lovely gorgeous day so why not go to the seafront and have a look at the shops? Have a great day everyone! And a great weekend too!

Post vacation resolutions, wellington boots, the countryside and Happy Father’s day to my dad in Italy! An ordinary Monday in Sussex

19 Mar

Today is a gorgeous day in the countryside, the sun is shining, last night the temperature dropped again below zero but now you can only see the sun in a clear sky…completely different panorama than Miami but breath-taking in the same way!

I’m still struggling with the jet lag, I had to take sleeping tablets at for the past couple of nights, I tried a few times to count the sheep to sleep but apparently it doesn’t work for me…hopefully soon my biological clock will go back to Greenwich time!

Saturday was Saint Patrick’s Day, Sunday was Mother’s day in England, today is Father’s day in Italy…it’s confusing all these celebrations! Last night we had my mother in law for dinner to celebrate British Mother’s Day and my husband made an amazing roast beef, so that’s the proof that even English people can cook something more than fish&chips…

Today I’m trying to catch up a bit with work and everything after have been away: for some strange reason every time I come back home from holiday it feels like new year to me, you will probably wonder why…but every time, I create a post-holiday resolution, and this time I did it again.

My post-holiday resolution this time is:

Lose weight (I had the same must in the previous resolution but I lost only 800grams, which I put it back on, with interests, so still one mission to accomplish).

Find a creative part time or full time job to do….wedding planner, translator, writer…I don’t know but I need to feed my brain a bit more.

Start to learn Spanish. I feel so left out in Miami where 90% of the people speak Spanish…I’d like to have a least a basic knowledge of the language, not satisfied to know only two languages at the moment, I want more.

Start seriously to write a recipe book. I had this resolution in my previous list, I have started…but I still have a long way to go.

Anything else? I can’t think about anything else at the moment, but I think I have a few missions to focus on to keep myself busy for a while.

Do you like to see a different view for once? I put my wellies on and I walked for an hour in the fields, what an amazing feeling to feel the spring coming, luckily without hay fever yet!

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…
