mini in the city

This morning a thunder woke me up, but I am still in holidays mood.
In three weeks my great escape is happening so I am slowly getting ready. Next to my sun hat I won't forget a mini skirt. It's not an easy item to wear, but when it's more than 30 degrees it's a must have.
How to wear mini in the city and look good?
Here are some ideas by OP:

Keep it simple, keep it comfy and enjoy the weather!

books I would like to read



I love to read. Now I have more time to get round to spend some time with exciting books.
I think I will start with these two positions:





My First New York: Early Adventures in the Big City (As Remembered by Actors, Artists, Athletes, Chefs, Comedians, Filmmakers, Mayors, Models, Moguls, Porn Stars, Rockers, Writers, and Others 
From the staff of New York Magazine comes the perfect gift for the Manhattanite in all of us. My First New York is a glorious collection of recollections and reminiscences as fifty of the city’s most famous residents recapture the kicks and thrills of first arriving in the Big Apple. Actors and athletes, rock stars and porn stars, writers, artists, and politicos—from Yogi Berra to Liza Minnelli, from Chloe Sevigny to Andy Samberg to Diane Von Furstenberg—they all share their hilarious, touching, frightening, amazing early big city adventures in My First New York.

and
Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything




Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool?
What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common?
How much do parents really matter?
These may not sound like typical questions for an economist to ask. But Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He studies the riddles of everyday life—from cheating and crime to parenting and sports—and reaches conclusions that turn conventional wisdom on its head. 

Freakonomics is a groundbreaking collaboration between Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, an award-winning author and journalist. They set out to explore the inner workings of a crack gang, the truth about real estate agents, the secrets of the Ku Klux Klan, and much more.
Through forceful storytelling and wry insight, they show that economics is, at root, the study of incentives—how people get what they want or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing.


Do you have any exciting books to recommend?

sun hat, yes please...

protection protection protection
in my holiday pack I will have a sunhat. I haven't decide which one yet, but I definitely will pack some head protection. Doesn't matter if you 5 or 55, tall or short you should have at least one sun hat. They the best way to express yourself on a hot day like today. You can find funky, chic, classy or sporty one so don't wait to long and pick one.

big, comfy but somehow sexy

let's start the holidays post series: what can you find in my holidays bag.
I begin with wide leg trousers.
They are comfy, very summery, and whatever figure you have, you can look sexy in them.
Light material like cotton or linen and you can look amazing on your city break or evening walk on a beach.
What do you think?

Summer in the city

finally the Sun showed its lovely face. I cannot express how happy it makes me feel. What do you do when it's hot? Are you the sunbathing, doing- nothing-kind of people, or are you energy-high-active-fans?
I am a little bit of both. I love to be active, walk on the beach is one of my favorite things to do, whatever the weather. But I also don't mind sitting by the pool and drinking some colourful drinks.
Don't you feel better automatically when the weather is nice? I think I have some special condition, my mood is very dependent on the weather.
Even people on the street look happier, they choose brighter colours to wear and smile wider.
Yesterday I spent fantastic day with my mum and Phil in Liverpool. I love this city. I am extremely happy to have my mum with me here for few weeks. We are enjoying everyday spoiling each other-love it!

How do you spend this Summer? In few weeks we're going with my love to our favourite holiday place, so the next post possibly will be about packing and my holiday must have!


cheers to the Sun!
