Being Welsh and Italian, How Confusing.


                                      Me a few years ago now, did a tiny bit of modelling I was rubbish.



Hi all, how have you all been? Sorry I haven't written many personal blog posts lately, I have had some interesting work on as you can read in the earlier three blog posts, they were so fun to do, and very good experience for me, I had never done any sponsored  posts before and was honoured to be asked to do them.  I also had a lot of family commitments last week that took up a lot of my time, so the personal side of my blog I know has been slightly lacking, I wanted to write a post yesterday  to be published today but I had a hell of a migraine from lunch time for most of the day and the thought of sitting in front of a computer screen was a non starter.
  So I am back my lovely ones and I would like to write about a personal subject that I have had in my head for a while, and a post I have wanted to write but never knew how to put into words. So here goes, I am sure that regular readers of my blog might have worked out now that my family are Italian, my Mum was born on the Adriatic coast and my Dad from Naples. My Mum came over to the UK just after second world war  when she was a teenager and my dad in the late sixties in his late twenty's they met got married had had their children. I was born in the UK so were my Brothers and Sister, and I have lived here all my life, growing up visiting my family in Italy, in the Summer Holiday's and sometimes  Easter.
   Someone asked me a question not long ago, a question I have been asked many times before, do you feel British or Italian. Is it possible to feel both? because I do.
   I was born in North Wales, and I love it, I was so lucky to have been brought up in the most beautiful part of the world.  So sometimes I can feel very in between I am sure many people who are brought up in a country were your parents weren't born feel just like me, belonging to neither of them, I feel Welsh I feel British and I feel Italian am I allowed to say that, when people look at me they know that I am not typically British looking and try to guess, when I speak I have an Welsh Accent, and I get the look of shock on people's faces trying to work me out, when I am in Italy my family treat me as Italian, but to everyone else I am British, WOW it's so hard to explain. Are you confused? I am.
   I know that I am not alone in feeling this way, like I said there are millions of people like me, all over the world I can only comment on myself.  I love that by the time I was fourteen I could speak four languages English, Italian, Welsh and French which I was taught in school, as each year goes by I am losing my French and Welsh which is sad because I don't use them often I can still understand a lot of it but don't speak it well anymore it's a shame and one day I hope to rectify that in the New Year see if I can pick them up again I will of course will let you know how I go. I can still speak Italian, because I hear it everyday.
  So now you know a little bit more about me, sorry if I confused you in this post. I am off now to Netflix and chill as they say  with my lovely one Ooohhh. 😃 speak soon love Mimi💋

My Obsession with Red Shoes.

I was clearing out some boxes that were secretly stashed at the bottom of my wardrobe,  actually  I forgot about them.  There were about six of them, I wondered what was in each one,  I took them out and placed them on my bed in great anticipation of what I might find, I opened the first one and there was a lovely pair of red stilettos  that were about 15 years old, and I hadn't worn in ages, the second one were some flats,  third some pumps, all the boxes contained shoes of some style that I hadn't seen for an eternity.                                         Why have I kept all theses old shoes, I thought, when I hadn't worn any of them for years, all lined up I looked at them. Yes  they are all Red,  and  that's why I couldn't bear to part with any of them.                                         I had discarded all different colours and style's  down the years,    couldn't spot any of them,  not even in a line up…

Bath, Bed and Breakfast.

After a very tiring week, work work work appointment after appointment I  just want to relax and soak in the bath, go to bed in some lovely bedding I bought last weekend and have a full English Breakfast on a Saturday Morning, There is nothing like it, I have put some of the products I used below. Enjoy and Happy Weekend folks. 💋 



Bath  I used Sanctuary Spa Body Wash, it was so relaxing and the smell of sandalwood and jasmine was lovely, and the essential oils made my skin so soft. Here is the link Sanctuary spa.





Bed  I bought this bedding from Dunelm last weekend I couldn't wait to use it I think it's so pretty I love the subtle colours  you can find it here Dunelm bedding.





Breakfast  Yummy scrambled egg, sausage, beans bacon, hash brown, and a half a tomato, just what I needed, I don't eat this everyday just at the weekend sometimes or when someone lovely will make it for me.

Why I Hate Love Island.

I know this will not be  popular  with a lot of the  British public, but I hate ITV1's  Love Island, there I have said it. Am I the only one?  I feel on a daily basis the only one.   Last Summer this show, about lovely young men and women on an holiday island  was on and all my  female friends and some of my  family were watching it, they were fascinated, next to the photocopier they were fascinated, going out for drinks with my girlfriends all I could hear was he fancies her she snogged him, so I felt like an absolute freak when I suddenly shouted to out "I have never seen it", all heads turned and looked at me in amazement, eyes wide and mouths open, one or two heads shaking in amazement, "what" one particular friend   cried out "never?".  They were horrified I felt like I wanted the ground to swallow me up whole.
   So I must confess that night I went home put on Youtube typed in Love Island and there were lots of lots of older clips I saw one tha…

Ten Best Blogging Tips

When I started my blog in July 2018, I never realised how much work being a blogger actually was, looking back I was so naive, I have read other blogs over the years and thought, that's easy  I can do that, but I was wrong it takes hours of work, don't get me wrong I love it, it has ups and downs but the sense of satisfaction every time I work and publish any blog post is tremendous. My blog is my online baby and I have to nurture and make it grow. So I have compiled ten top tips  to help  the blogger from my point of view.


1,First when you write a post make sure it is your own original work, you can get inspiration from other's  but never copy anyone else work, a big no no.

2,  Watch out for SEO keywords, you will need to include them in your title and in the body of your work, I am not an expert at SEO, but I just include popular words, but don't compromise your creativity for SEO. 

3,  Make sure your blog page is attractive to reader's, a nice looking font good Ph…
