Getting the wedding blogging fever, my latest thing! Anna in her wonderland between wedding planning, food & fitness

6 Feb

Dear readers

I know it has been a long time since my last post but January has been filled with lots of events, good and bad ones that the time just flew away and I finally find myself here at the beginning of February to post again to discuss my latest projects.

Wedding season is going to kick-start soon and it’s time to get ready with my clients to get all the paperwork and the boring bureaucracy part out of the way to focus on the details of the big day, flowers, food, decorations and so on…from this I got contacted by an Italian wedding blog for whom now I am writing tips for the future brides and grooms, it’s so exciting and fulfilling to have free pass to write about anything I want…shame that I do struggle to write the post in English and Italian, the Italian part takes me ages… since when I have nearly forgotten to write in my own language? Crazy!

So if you guys want to read my latest post for the Italian wedding blog Panorama Sposi here we go the links:

First post

Music for your wedding, 12 beautiful songs

Second post

Valentine’s day, love, flowers and a bit of S&M thanks to 50 Shades of grey the movie

This new project is really exciting for me but I haven’t forgotten my first love, my blog anna in her wonderland! Everybody is glad that January is over and despite the cold weather and the sporadic snow sometimes, I am already focusing into spring and I have been exercising a lot, more to keep my mind busy than anything else but it’s working, I feel already better and more full of energy, but so hungry all the time! Luckily I don’t need to lose any weight otherwise it will be a bit pointless do all that exercise and stuff my face after (but in a healthy way!)

Coco my lazy dog is always on my side keeping me company between a nap and the other, luckily I have her next to me!

Well guys I hope you will enjoy my wedding related post on Panorama sposi and have a great weekend you all!

I discovered a new old recipe my mum used to make, and now I am obsessed with it! Chocolate salami my last craving

But I am trying to be healthy too after a workout, loving my banana, avocado, ginger, lemon, spinach, cucumber and coconut water smoothie

But on a Sunday the good work gets forgotten, I am a sucker for a good sunday roast and sticky toffee pudding

annainherwonderland February 2015 (6)My gluten free chocolate and espresso cake was a hit…shame it didn’t look the part but the taste was great! Yes I work out and I come home to bake, shame on me

I woken up feeling like pancakes a few days ago, a new thing for me because to me pancake are like italian crespelle but filled with mushrooms, ham and so on…but the banana version is just so good!

annainherwonderland February 2015 (12)Right I am not a food blogger as you guys all know so let’s quit the foodie section and go back to something else…like coco!

Taking cooking really seriously, spending lots of time with the puppy and dreaming a get away in10 days…the latest updates

20 May

Dear readers

Time is never enough and sometimes I just struggle a bit to find 15 minutes to sit down in front of my laptop to do some writing (I am taking advantage of the moment now that the dog is asleep!)

So…what’s up you guys? I have been in England for over 3 weeks and I feel it…I feel like escaping again! All I think about right now is to take care of Coco…who’s 6 months today!

birthday dog coco

I think about cooking all the time (and I wonder why I can get rid of those two kilos more on my body)…I think about going out for long walk on Brighton beach (If only the weather could be on my side)…and I can’t stop thinking about that in 10 days I am off to Miami again, oh yeah!!

We had a very busy weekend to prepare a dinner party here at home, Italian dinner party to be precise, and my lasagne as usual came out perfect! I am bit surprised about how good  is my husband when he is cooking, he made Sicilian style arancini (rice balls with minced meat and breadcrumbs)…I am starting to doubt his citizenship!!

My gorgeous Coco wanted to say Happy Valentine’s to everyone…and let’s all celebrate tonight…

The puppies diaries part 2: sleepless nights, endless biting, Italian dog sitters, lots of love but I am sorry Coco I need a vacation, roll on Miami next Monday!

11 Feb

Hello readers

Here we are, probably over a week since my last post, very tired indeed today after half sleepless night. Coco decided to start to bark and cry around 5.30am, I was just about to go downstairs to calm her down when I heard the magic noise Coco loves: the food on the scale….the Italian dog sitters (yes, my parents came over to help me out…what’s going to happen when I will have a child??) fed Coco at 5.30am just to keep her quiet…so today Coco has “food jet lag”, she keeps on begging for food at any time!

Do I go out to do a wee and a poo? Well I want a biscuit when I come in or I will bite your toes offnow you wonder why I wear Ugg boots instead than slippers indoors!

Well as you all know I have fallen hard for her, my husband even harder (he went off for a ski trip last week and I swear he missed the dog more than me!) but now I start to feel in a need of a vacation, luckily next Monday we are off to Miami…my mother in law will Cocosit for 10 days…I wish her luck!

I’m sorry all my posts right now have become completely focused on the Dog’s theme…I am promising nice pictures from next week onwards in Florida!

The puppies diaries: how can Coco Chanel Elizabeth Taylor Collins steal my heart and put my life upside down like this? The power of a gorgeous Cavalier king Charles puppy

31 Jan

Calming signals dog

Hello readers

I cannot believe how my life has changed in just over 2 weeks of having little Coco at home with us. I love her dearly, and I think my husband loves her more than me right now (endless cuddles on the sofa with the dog and not a look to the wife, nice) but I must admit, I did not think it was going to be such hard work to raise and educate a puppy.

I am not a morning person at all, and lack of sleep on the first week hit me badly, and still 2 weeks on to me get up around 7/7.20 in the morning feels like wake up in the middle of the night, I never thought life could start so early in the morning!!

I am not a fashionista but I like every day to get dressed nicely, even if it’s just jeans and cashmere sweater…I can’t do this anymore with a vicious puppy that is trying to bite everything she sees (including my nose and my husband’s) so at the moment is just old jeans and old baggy sweater…anyway who does see you? No one when you spend all day at home!

I enjoy stay at home and just have lazy days sometimes…but now I start to feel a bit trapped in. I am not one of those people who just stay all day sat on the sofa watching E! and Bravo (to be a good real housewife) but my escapes at the moment are just, lock Coco in the kitchen and run to the supermarket … not actually very amusing!

I am even missing all the sales in town…I would just like to go out me and Coco for a walk in town instead than in the fields, but I can’t yet until she has the second vaccination…one more week to go.

I have work to do anyway which is good to be in sometimes….but now I am getting stressed, irritated and grumpy…I even called the gym to start my membership again…just to escape a bit!

Coco…I love you, I love the fact that you are making our days brighten with your presence…but I need to control my life again!!!

How is it possible something so small can make your heart to skip a beat? Absolutely in love with Coco (Elizabeth Taylor) Collins!

23 Jan

Hello readers

Here I am, really tired but happy, I have always dreamed to have a dog when I was a child, 28 years on I can finally say, yes I have a gorgeous Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy, named Coco (with Elizabeth Taylor as middle name, as a tribute to my favourite TV series ever, Sex and the city). Coco is 9 weeks old of sweetness and madness at the same time, how can something so small and cuddly can make you falling in love so hard?

Luckily I work from home because so far she is taking all my time and efforts…here we are some pictures… and a video from the TV series to remind me of the real Elizabeth Taylor

7 Oct

I couldn’t believe to my eyes when I saw them, seven Labrador puppies in front of me, in my friend’s house!!! When I saw them last Sunday they were eight days old and so gorgeous, I might have fallen in love for them!

Penny, the mother looked so protective and beautiful….well if anyone around Milan area wants a puppy please let me know, I will tell my friend!
