a skeleton OR a demon ?

Dear Diary,

 To boo or not to boo? It was a dilemma for me since many people think I `m too cute to spook but it`s my first Halloween in London, so why not give it a try? After all, I wanted it like crazy cause dressing up is my favorite part!

What is Halloween?  All Hallows' Eve, is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on October 31. According to many scholars, All Hallows' Eve is a Christian feastinitially influenced by Celtic harvest festivals.

What options do you have that day? Well, typical festive Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, attending costume parties, decorating, carving pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, playing pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films.

 What did I do?  Yesterday, there was a Halloween party in Mayfair; my chance to scary people. Did I manage that? Yeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh.... I don a super stylist skirt and bra top, my fab leather boots but most was done with the make-up artistic flash that I came up with. The result was something between a skeleton and a demon.

                               That`s my trick or treat bag; everyone was scared and got no treats...

What products did I use?

Happy Halloween!
Hope to have a spooktacular Halloween!

Cycling in Hyde Park

Dear Diary,

 Happy Friday! How about going cycling? Let`s go to Hyde Park,hire a Barclay Bike and start rolling...

Barclays Cycle Hire (BCH) is a public bicycle sharing scheme in London, in the UK. The scheme's bicycles are popularly known as 'Boris Bikes', after Boris Johnson, who was the Mayor of London when the scheme was launched on 30 July 2010.

Hyde Park is one of the largest parks in central London, and one of the Royal Parks of London, famous for its Speakers' Corner.

The park is divided in two by the Serpentine. The park is contiguous with Kensington Gardens; although often still assumed to be part of Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens has been technically separate since 1728, when Queen Caroline made a division between the two..

Hyde Park covers 142 hectares (350 acres) and Kensington Gardens covers 111 hectares , giving an overall area of 253 hectares , making the combined area larger than the Principality of Monaco , though smaller than New York City's Central Park  and Dublin's Phoenix park . To the southeast, outside the park, is Hyde Park Corner

Although, during daylight, the two parks merge seamlessly into each other, Kensington Gardens closes at dusk but Hyde Park remains open throughout the year from 5 am until midnight.

The Royal Albert Hall is a concert hall on the northern edge of South Kensington, in the City of Westminster,London, England, best known for holding the annual summer Proms concerts since 1941. It has a capacity (depending on configuration of the event) of up to 5272 seats, however standing areas and stage specifications can increase or decrease this. The Hall is a registered charity held in trust for the nation and receives no public or central and local government funding.
Since its opening by Queen Victoria in 1871, the world's leading artists from several performance genres have appeared on its stage and it has become one of the UK's most treasured and distinctive buildings. Each year it hosts more than 350 events including classical concerts, rock and pop, ballet and opera, sports, award ceremonies, school and community events, charity performances and banquets.

Portobello Road

Dear Diary,

Buongiorno! Come stai? I`ve got to reveal a huge secret.... There are two lovers in London City: the sun and the rain and they are constantly playing hide and seek. On 12 October, the winner was the sun; so I got up, had a palatable breakfast, put on some stylish clothes, took the tube from Sloane Square and arrived to the ultimate Saturday destination: PORTOBELLO ROAD.

What`s that in my hands? Nop, it`s not cappuccino guys. I`m a tea-holic type! This is not an ordinary tea; it`s a bubble tea!

For more info click on the following link:

Welcome to Portobello Road, the world’s largest antiques market with over 1,000 dealers selling every kind of antique and collectible. Visitors flock from all over the world to discover one of London’s best loved landmarks which contains the most extensive selection of antiques in Britain. 
Things to do: 
                    1) Portobello Market: The world famous Portobello Road hosts the largest antiques market on the planet every Saturday.Pay extra attention cause the antiques and bric-a-brac stalls are open only on Saturdays. 
                    2) Electric Cinema: it offers a uniquely intimate film viewing experience (in either a plush arm chair or two seat sofa) where you can enjoy current and older movies.
                     3) Notting Hill Carnival: Every year during the August Bank Holiday weekend London celebrates Europe’s biggest street festival – Notting Hill Carnival.

                   What did I do there? Mmmmmm, I went to the market cause I`m keen on markets -have a look at the Apple Market on my previous post.

Loved this second-hand romantic pink strapless dress...

That`s all for now D.
Until next time,
Mille baci!
