We are so lucky to have another reason to visit Italy again, although this time it’s not tennis or a birthday calling; it’s my brother and Shakyra tieing the knot – in Perugia. I’ve never been there so it will be very exciting to see the city. We’ll also spend a night in our favourite place Rome! I sometimes miss Rome and Italy like you miss a person, will be so much fun. My only little concern right now is the weather, it will be cold for sure as it’s end of January. It’s time to plan the wedding outfit! Winter wedding, any ideas re dress?
Last time, spring time, in Rome!
Again…if I knew italian and could actually sing, laura pausini wouldn’t be so offended by my passionate attempts to copy her ;o)
I just came back from 1½ hour with a lady who I see once a week, she’s my spiritual guide. It’s such a rewarding time spent talking and discussing, I wish everyone had someone like her. Every time I walk out of her house I feel lighter and more positive.
Anyway, cold weather (although very sunny) is not on top of my list of joyful moments, I passionately hate it. Imagine me living in a cold country, I’d have to go for confession every other minute for swearing. It’s just not natural to feel this cold. I know what you’re thinking, you’re in Malta, it’s sunny and over 15+ but no, i t i s n o t r i g h t. There should be a limit when you’re already wearing long-sleeve tops – a heavy jacket should be out of the question. Uff.
Tips; To help myself out a bit, skin care-wise, I prepared a DIY lip scrub with honey and sugar. The sugar peels of the small rough parts and the honey works to soften the lips.
It’s just that sometimes we get stuck and it takes a little extra effort to look ahead or be in the now.
Yesterday I spent some more hours at Mater Dei (hospital) and found out all was ok after the operation which I did six weeks ago. Unfortunately they missed the whole part of taking out the stitches after a week so it was of course a bit infected and I had to remove them in a rather painful way…I could have gone to my GP to have them removed but I just assumed they were those common disposable ones that go on their own. Well they didn’t. I don’t blame the hospital staff though, they were very stressed and tired, it’s just a shame when they cut down on things like that. Apart from that, the whole experience was trouble free apart from the pain.
Anyway, to feel better I bought a pair of pink and grey girly leggings for home, Oysho is heaven on earth when it comes to winter snuggles! Cute right?
What do I wish for this year?
So many things, but often I see things in shops or online, or even someone wearing something like a clutch or statement necklace, but how do you explain to your loved ones when they ask? 'Ehm yeah, that thing I saw the other day, on someone who was next to me in the coffee shop...'
I know, Aidens list is far ahead of mine and we said we won't buy gifts between us grown-ups, but every year I still wish for things. Little bit of a greedy person yes I'm sorry.
I'd like some icons in the form of paintings, statues, jewellry, anything. Vintage style. Also, scented candles are always welcome and so are artsy notebooks and perfumes. The CH above smells delish! Maybe some nice warm slippers would be good too!
First of all Happy Birthday to my bestest friend M, unfortunately she decided to move back to Sweden so her free b'day drink will go straight to the lost and found. Maybe next year. Pastasa. I miss her and it's annoying when people tell you; but there's skype nowadays. Yea, I know there's skype and another million ways to 'connect' - but skype doesn't play bachata and drinking wine in front of a computer image is a bit sad. No? Anyway, I miss the real deal! Enjoy your day Guzita!
Today is 1st November and it's sunny and beautiful, hopefully the weather app is getting it all wrong with the 70% chance of rain. Aiden is off school today and we're going out for some shopping.
I'm planning to detox for a few days as we had some late dinners and nights out this week and my body tells me to cool it. And so I listen ;o)
Have a nice weekend xxx
Enjoying some coffee and sun on my mum's terrace this morning, had to pick up Aiden after a sleep-over with cousin Nate!
Last month when I did the operation the Dr kept repeating my age, which was 33. Five million times he said it and kept writing it down on his notes. Like 33, 33, 33...ehmm and....yeah 33, 33, 333333333
And - for the last week, Aiden has been going nuts saying 'My mum is gonna be 34. THIRTY FOUR! O-M-G! (clearly not keeping in mind that he'll be TEN next year)
You know, I won't say OMG, I'll just stick to W-T-F?! Is there a general age obsession? I feel like 25, sometimes I act like 19, sometimes like 60 and most of the time I try to look younger than, oh I don't know, 30? Why are people so afraid of ageing? If it makes you feel stressed, speed up whatever you wish to accomplish!
Anyway. I'm soon going to my spa treat, probably my face will look so and so tonight at dinner, so good thing Jonas paid attention to detail on my wishlist, a refill of Dior Skinflash.
