Everywhere today has a different name, Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day, Mardi Gras…I just know it’s FAT TUESDAY and I’m on a fricking diet!

21 Feb

After 4 days of indulging and enjoying the time in Italy with my family and friends, yesterday I came back home to my husband, left a rainy Milan, got on the busiest Easyjet flight ever…does anybody work on a Monday afternoon instead than flying from Milan to London??

Came back to my gorgeous husband who bought for me a frog made of soap…I love frogs!!

Plus he cooked for me sausages and mash…just to go back to the British traditions, trouble is…I’m getting old, and despite my high metabolism I’m putting some weight on and I’m not happy. I’m probably 2 kilos more than my right weight…please do not slag me off I know it’s nothing but…I’m going to be in my bikini in 13 days lying down overlooking Downtown Miami so…I want my perfect weight back!

That’s why I just came back from the gym where I sweated my ass off on the crossramp…hopefully I’m going to lose weight not become a mini body builder with thick thighs … I just need to focus less on food and focus more on the gym and diet…without becoming like her!

BUT I am struggling today, it’s Martedi Grasso, or Fat Tuesday and I miss my Aunt Tina’s chiacchiere…and I miss dress up, and I miss the Carnival in Venice…OMG!!

Right…Anna just focus…and think about dinner time!!!

How can I have Sympathy For the Devil if he wears Prada Headphones?

6 Dec

I couldn’t believe to my eyes when I walked in Prada store in Venice on Sunday…Prada headphones, how crazy is that?

These Prada headphones comes with the usual trimmings of the Prada logo on the earcups themselves as well as the Prada triangle featured on the complimentary storage/carrying bag for the heaphones. Besides the presence of the Prada label, these on-ear headphones look pretty much identical to the Bose OE2 or the Phiaton PS320 headphones, popular on-ear headphones amongst travellers.

They must be damn good with £400 / $ 585 price tag! In store I saw the ladies versions as well, in pretty light pastel colours

Plus I saw the gift section with cute and funny teddy bears inspired key olders and charms…

and look at a prefect key ring for me…

I think I will finish off my Christmas shopping online…the town is crazy busy on lunchtime and you cannot shop without being pushed…And because I have started to feel the festive theme…for you my favourite Christmas song…how gorgeous was George Michael in this video???

We found love in a hopeless place…VENICE!

5 Dec

I have been there 3 times before but this time it’s the first time I can officially say
I left my heart in Venice, or Venezia as my fellow Italians friend say…it was great!
San Marco Square, the Doge’s Palace, il Ponte dei Sospiri (Bridge of Sighs), the Gran Canal, the Rialto’s bridge, the gondolas, the vaporetto, the Aperitif, The Aperol Spritz, the prosecco, il cicchetto (the local appetizers that line the counters of little pubs all over town at the end of each workday), lo sgroppino (as refreshing as lemon sorbet on a hot summer’s day and as thirst-quenching as a sparkling wine, sgroppino is a Venetian dessert that combines both), the cuttle fish venetian style, my list is never ending!
I had a great time with my husband, my mum in law and it was amazing to celebrate my dad’s birthday all together yesterday…I think the pictures will speak for me.
Have a great day you all and please, if you have the chance go to visit Venice!!!!

My parents!!!! Happy birthday again DaD!

On our way…Venice here we come!!!

2 Dec

Have a great weekend everyone!!!!

Break the tradition…just like that!

30 Nov

Winter evenings, countdown to Christmas, red wine, the blanket on the sofa, trash TV on, as usual, what else do we need to enjoy a pleasant cold evening? Some old good comfort food! It has been a while since my last Sunday Roast, and even longer for my husband, so in the past two weekends we tried to go for a pub lunch to enjoy a roast but due to a series to umpredictable events we weren’t able to make it, so why not have a Roast Dinner on a Tuesday night? it was good and delicious, plus I didn’t need to cook, Kim did!

Yeah…it was good!

Happy birthday to my Mum-in-Law, we are going to celebrate tonight at home with another homemade dinner by my husband again, looks like I’m on cooking strike 😉

– 2 days to our weekend in Venice

-20 to go back home for Christmas

-28 to Miami and Barbados!

I woke up with this song in my mind today, and because of Tinie Tempah I remembered one of our last holiday in March with friends, where we met him!

Becky, Tinie and me @ Surfcomber pool party – SoBe

My husband and I – moijto time!

Out for dinner, at joe’s stone crab

God I miss Miami so much!

Monday…not one of my best day of the week!!

28 Nov

Monday…it makes me think about Craig David and this song…so old but still so good…I’m gutted that I haven’t met him yet, we could say that we are neighbours in Miami…only 4 blocks between Flamingo and the Mondrian!

Wake up on a Monday morning, it’s a trauma that hits me every week! And every Monday, like every other day of the week, I have to fight for a parking space at the station car park…Bless you Thinkerbell (my Smart’s name) I always manage to find somewhere to park with your size!

Luckily the day at work is going quick, town is busy with everyone running around the shops for the Christmas shopping….so looking around myself I can update my wish list!

Sony Bloggie Touch camera….it could be great for the blog as well…maybe in pink…let’s do silver so even my husband will be able to use it!

Smoke – Carvela Kurt Geiger boots…if I’ll kick someone’s ass it will hurt like hell! 😉

It will be a short week this one…Friday we will fly to Venice to celebrate my mother in law’s birthday plus my dad’s birthday…it’s going to be great…and cold!!!
