Happy Valentine`s Day!/ secret yard

Dear Diary,

Happy Valentine`s day! 

What actually is this V day?
Well, some say that it`s a special day on which you show your love to your Valentine, the one you are in love with, by giving them red roses, chocolates, stuffed toys, etc. 
For others, it`s just a day of conspicuous consumption because you must buy all this stuff so as to show your love and for them love can be showed every single day, not only on the 14th February. 
What I think of the V day?
Well. I`m somewhere in between. For me, my Valentine can be anyone. My family, my pet( I don`t have any tho), my best friends, myself! Anyone I want to show my love to and express my  feelings and affection for them. I`m not that into buying V things for the day. I`m more into DIY. I use what I already have and give them a V vibe. 

So? Who was my V? Who else apart from my B!
It was the perfect excuse to be with my bestie and do something that we immensely enjoy and we are good at: be unconditionally crazy....
We tried to be as V as possible, so we put on a red dress, a blazer, black boots and a statement hat. The setting came out of the blue and it couldn`t have been a better one; the secret yard in my building....Well, not that secret but,I  had no idea that there was such a yard here!?!?!?!
The weather was extremely windy so we had to fight, like a lot, over the wind, the blowing dress and the almost gone with the wind balloons.... one gone forever tho up in the sky.

As I was browsing through the pics so as to choose which ones I `ll upload, I couldn`t find a proper one in which we wouldn`t look that kook  at all. And then I thought aloud. Well.... That`s us and we can do nothing about it. 

Balbi and I represent well the following quote:
Imperfection is beauty, 
Madness is genius
and it`s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. 
Boredom doesn`t suit us!
Who`s your best partner in crime?

All that glitters is not gold!/ Albert Memorial/ Albert Hall

Dear Diary,

How are you?
As you probably know from my IG account, my bestie was here for  a couple of days that turned out to be two weeks!!!! I had a really amazing time combining tourism with work! For me, it was a nice escape from my everyday routine, being lugged around London; for my friend was falling in love with London deeper and deeper day after day. 
 We went to places that I had been to a long time ago, like a year or so ago, and once again I realised how fast time flies away... plus the incredible beauty of this city!
Playing tourism is very entertaining and gives you the chance to spot places for your forthcoming posts. That`s what happened in my case...
This post is about a side of Hyde Park that I really like, It`s always so picturesque no matter what the weather looks like. It reveals the glory and wealth of the Queen of England and the state of these relics throughout the centuries. The title I`ve used for this post is a bit controversial since all seen in gold in the UK is made of real gold!
 Well, who said that gold and money can bring real happiness into one`s life and heart?!?! If gold is the ultimate but still untouchable good in life, don`t fool yourselves that it can make you glitter the moment you touch it. Focus on what is THE important in life and chase after it. If for you is gold, then good luck.....

As every thread of gold is valuable,
 so is every minute of your precious life!
Moments that will never come back 
but will be safely kept in your vault of your memories!
