Dear readers

The weekend is over, summer is over, autumn/fall is here and I suddenly feel cold, fancying a glass of red wine in the evening and to have the log fire on, soon without even noticing it will be Halloween and soon enough even Christmas, where does the time fly all the time??

Miami seems a long time ago, the weather unfortunately wasn’t the best in September, as our friends say “ You bring the rain over from England every time”…not fun!

Now we are back in the country to be reunited with coco, to carry on wedding planning projects, to bake a lot and to wait for the next trip…here you can see some pictures of the vacation, while wait for the next one where my best friend will join us, and I cannot wait!

Cruising around at night

Still living the American Dream even a few days after being back home, the resume of the good times in Miami…Travel makes me exhausted but so happy!

27 May

Dear Readers

I am so sad to have left, once again, the sunshine state behind me…especially when I come home and the weather in England suddenly turns wet and miserable, it makes me want to run away again! Oh Dear Miami how many good memories I take home with me every time…the friendly and beautiful people around town, the warm sunshine, the parties, the boating, the bike rides around town, the endless tasty dinners and the new restaurants to discover…it is always a discovery for me! I do hate the plane ride though, it makes me tense and nervous thinking that I am over the big pond (I haven’t gone over fear of flying and I don’t know when I will finally surrender to the fact that is the safest form of transport…clearly not yet).

So much good times and fun, but let the pictures to speak for me!

Have a good week everybody!!

Nakd healthy snack, perfect to carry in my handbag while travelling and boost my energy levels

It cannot be the first night if we don’t get our Cuban food fix, Vaca Frita!

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

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!!!!

Still have some good memories, vacation is over and we think about the good times! Miami I heart you

16 Mar

Touched down back to the UK this morning after some cranberry and vodka cocktails, the flight delayed and some Valium…never slept that well on a plane I couldn’t believe it!

I still have some good memories and still lots of pictures to show, so let’s start!

Good moijto at lunchtime in Coconut Grove, followed by a super good burger

My husband makes great moijtos…strawberry one from me!

Tuesday night is Delano night

on our way back…

Another night here, let’s get ready

meeting friends…and their dog!

the first time to a Cuban restaurant

White or red sangria?

After all this…it’s time for a Cuban coffee

anyone wants some chilli willy?

the weather was bad Thursday, why not have a nap?

The view on our way back to the airport

at the airport lounge … not ready to leave

A few random memories…how cute is molly? the dog at Grove Harbour

the view from the pool in a sunny day

peanut butter and strawberry…mmmm

and to end…party rock!!!

Sunshine, strong wind, powerboats…that’s Miami baby!

7 Mar

Hello everyone,

Sorry I haven’t been posting for a few days but between the long flight, a busy and windy day yesterday and no internet connection at the condo I have been struggling! I love being back here, I do feel at home so much!

So far we haven’t done much, been in bed at 9pm for the past 2 days (damned jet lag), moved the boat for one place to another, via another one…hanging out with friends and drinking…haven’t had time to put my bikini on yet but the weather is not the best today anyway so…let’s wait!

HTML drives me mad…plus I’m too busy and I NEED a night out!!!

1 Feb

Last night I feel asleep so quickly that I couldn’t believe it, probably it was the gym, the nice soup I made for starter, the courgette and peas risotto…or maybe it was the wine combined with the cold tablet…well it doesn’t matter I’m wide awake now!

I have been busy all day, been working on HTML messages and after an hour I started to feel the dizziness, not the best! I have been so busy today that I left the house at 3pm…to go to the supermarket…how crazy is that? Very cold day but beautifully sunny…and now I start to think what to wear tonight…I do need a dinner out with friends and I do need so much a drink!!!

Well…ok that Haywards Heath hasn’t got cocktail bars like South Beach…but I still need to go out anyway and I can’t wait to see our friends!!

Have a good evening you all!

Friday, ABSOLUTely dreaming to be in MIAMI…let’s enjoy the weekend!

20 Jan

An animated website made me feel like being back to Miami…well I do dream to be there full time so it wasn’t difficult for me thinking about how much I miss South Beach…too early on the day for a drink, but now I fancy an Absolut Miami cocktail at the Mondrian hotel…take me back there please! And everyone can dream with me clicking the link…dream with me!

http://absolutmiaminight.com/

(Ps: Absolut can I have a stock of bottles? they will look so good in our Miami condo!) 🙂

Have a good weekend to you all!!!

I wanna marry the night…

8 Nov

Overlooking the sun going down behind downtown, what a feeling! Lady Gaga is playing in the background, a Corona is on the table and despite being here on my own I feel damn happy tonight!

After my 10 hours sleep I woke up with a bit of sore throat but I have actually forgotten about it, I spent 3 hours in the sun reading Glamour magazine and a book, and at 3pm eastern time I decided to go walking up and down in Lincoln Road, when I arrived in Collins Avenue I thought, I haven’t been at the beach properly! I arrived at the beach in 15th and walked down to the nearest Starbucks, all way walking on the beach with my feet in the water, god I felt so happy!!!

Just calculated that today I have been walking for 3.8 miles…or 6.1 km…f### the gym!!

Maybe it’s just the sun, maybe it’s just the people so friendly…but I do feel so happy when I’m here!!!…I think I should relocate myself over here, when I’m in the UK no one, apart my mum, reads my blog!
