From bikinis to rain boots, from croissants to Marmite, please take me back to Saint Tropez! One year wedding anniversary to celebrate today!

16 Jul

In the last few days so many things happened and I have been through so many emotions in just a short period of time, Thursday morning I was getting ready for my best friend wedding and I just started to cry, out of the blue, because I am so happy for her found happiness. At the ceremony, I was smiling and clapping my hands when I broke down again…her gorgeous daughters wrote a reading on their own that was so sweet and full of love that made my heart to break, what a wonderful day we had and I wish so much happiness to the newly married!

The day after we had a very early start and left for the south of France for our anniversary weekend in Saint Tropez, it was so good, so much fun, so much good food and great weather that now that we are back I feel so lost! But despite the weather here is horrible and cold, I cannot forget that today we celebrate our first wedding anniversary, how exciting! Better if I start to cook while you check out all the pictures!! Xxx

A wedding to go to, a suitcase to pack, a trip abroad and a wedding anniversary to celebrate, all in a few days!!!!

I woke up so excited this morning, today my best friend is getting married!!!! The strange thing is I am the witness and I am over excited and the bride….is extremely calm right now, good for her!!!

I found this gorgeous card for them, I think is nice because it does kind of insert my culture on their wedding day…with an old fiat 500!

So I have a few hours to go and I have to do the ironing, pack the suitcases for me and my husband for our Saint Tropez weekend …. Need to get dressed have my new short hair done….and pray for good weather! Yesterday it was so bad here, sun, storm, sun,storm that when I went back in office I was soaked to head to toe no kidding! At the moment is 20 degrees sunny and it supposed to stay, pleaseeeeeeeee stay!!!

(the dress I am going to wear for today really doesn’t come out well in pictures…but I love it!)

I will probably post some snaps later on facebook and twitter, I will try to update the blog over the weekend but we might be busy in Saint Tropez….me reading 50 shades of grey and my husband falling asleep on the sun lounger!!!

50 shades of so much fun, loved the birthday bash at the weekend! So many cool things to look forward to this week!

After a week back home in England, I got invited to my friend’s 30th birthday party over the weekend, the weather wasn’t supposed to be good at all but despite this we wanted to enjoy and have fun…I packed my bag on Saturday morning, kissed my husband and left, 80miles after it was time to celebrate her!

Great night, great food for dinner, great drinks and great music, 2 clubs later and so much laughs we made it home where we all stayed…unfortunately the girls kept on having fun I was kind of hugging the toilet, I didn’t handle the drinks too well (I still blame the crazy driving of the taxi driver!). A few hours later I managed to fall asleep and in the morning we were like, oh my god what happened last night? I suggested, let’s see the pictures! And memories came back…a la hangover the movie in a female classier version! I miss the fact to not being able to hang out with my Italian friends at the weekend, luckily I have found so many nice girlfriend over here that I love and they appreciate me…and my entertaining performances, like even falling down the stairs backwards in a slow motion, what champagne does to me!!! This week is going to be slow to start (still need to get rid of my sickness first!) 3 days at work, Thursday I have to be witness at my best friend’s wedding and I cannot wait and friday morning at 6am we fly to Saint Tropez for the weekend, to celebrate our first wedding anniversary…I cannot believe it has already been a year!!! So…I wish to everyone a great week!xxxx

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

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.

Jet lag must have let the building, why am I still so up and down? Need another vacation probably!

16 May

It’s very strange to face again reality, I mean, I’m happy and relieved, back to work enjoying some new projects, thinking about what to do next and where to go next! Today I haven’t gone that far, I had a minor operation at the hospital, something on my lip that had to be removed, came back home…and fell asleep on the sofa for nearly 4 hours…wow! I had some catch up sleep to do probably!

Will I be able to match again working life/housewife-ing/chef/gym fanatic etc.? I am sure I will; just need some motivation and probably a few more hours of sleep.

At the moment the thing I enjoy less to be back home is…the weather of course! 16th May 2012…freezing cold! If I think that 3 years ago like today my brother got married and the weather in Italy was great, sunny and warm…right, nothing we can do about, apart wear again my winter jacket…

Some more trips have been planned, lots to look forward to, Italy, Miami, St Tropez, Italian Riviera…busy summer then!
