Pilfering in Barcelona

Pilfering in Barcelona


Is the title of my new short story. Since I was indeed Pilfered in Barcelona.

They took my brand new phone and my money and I was not best pleased I can assure you.

Should you have the desire to read my holiday tales I now have a selection of 11 would you believe?! My short (ish) stories are based on my experiences in the following places and they are as amusing as they are true:

1.  Trinidad & Tobago

2. Miami, USA

3. Lake Como, Italy

4. Cancun, Mexico

5. New York, USA

6. Las Vegas, USA

7. Santorini, Greece

8. Herefordshire, UK

9. Barcelona, Spain

10. Negril, Jamaica

11. Caribbean Cruise

What is my favourite story? – Well I guess it’s gotta be Trinidad and Tobago as it was the most surreal holiday of them all and will be familiar to a lot of women planning their big day (or someone else’s!).

I’m off to Croatia next week and I really am hoping (indeed praying!), that there will be no drama to be had and therefore I will have a pleasant time unworthy of note.

Forgive me if I bore you…

Forgive me if I bore you…

BUT I really must tell you again how amazed I am that I’d never heard of this vision board thing before! Ever since I found out (only yesterday!) how to create one I have been making them like crazy! I think I’m seriously addicted 🙂

I also signed up to Polyvore (which I’d initially assumed was just a shopping site), and I created a collection, including my Reed Diffuser which you can see here: http://www.polyvore.com/rosegold/collection?id=4017934

Alas I haven’t quite worked out how to create and share a vision board created on Polyvore. When I do you’ll be the first to know!

Look see, at my creativityy! 🙂

San 22 Hi There Bloggees and Bloggettes! How the devil are ya?! I’m back from my holiday on the beautiful island on Santorini in Greece and am feeling most relaxed and contented! I spent a wonderful couple of days there sampling the local cuisine, enjoying the beautiful scenery, sightseeing, shopping and even climbing up a mountain (well perhaps not a mountain but a very very large rock!). As you can see here, I’m looking quite chuffed with myself 🙂 San 33 I really enjoyed it in Santorini, and thought that the sunsets in particular were simply breathtaking. Highly recommended!

La Maltese

Well folks: The time is soon upon us. I’m referring of course, to my imminent departure to sunnier climes: Santorini in Greece. Santorini is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful places I’ve ever seen, with it’s rugged coastlines, white cave houses and magical sunsets, and let us not forget about the food! Fresh seafood and vegetables allday long! 🙂

Santorini has been high on my list of places that I’d like to visit for a couple of years now so I’m very excited that I will finally get to visit. October is meant to be the perfect time to visit because of it’s milder temperature (which can get up to the mid to high 30’s in the summer) and less tourists.

We will be staying at La Maltese Estate in Imerovigli. Asides from it being very beautiful and serene, La Maltese has the benefit of being located at the highest point of the caldera and so comes with some pretty spectacular views!
