What We Did for Mother's Day (Part 2) : Sunny Sunday in London


I always wondered why the UK celebrated Mother's day on a different date than pretty much the rest of the world. My mum of course, being Italian, does not mind this at all and quite likes being able to celebrate this special day twice a year. This past Sunday was no different and whilst presents are only involved the first time round, we simply had to make most of the beautiful sunny weather we were having in London (and how hot was it!). 

Despite being Brazilian and having grown up in constant near inferno temperatures, I'm so not used to the heat anymore, so the best way to cool things down was obviously having a barbecue (Brazilian style) with lots of foods, fruits, cold beverages and ice cream! The day started and ended in a jiffy but the refreshing sunshine, being able to leave the house in nothing but a tee and shorts (and not regret it), and good company made this weekend one I really needed. 

It's funny how a few sunshiny days change everything; I am up bright and early today feeling like my batteries have been recharged and that is always a good feeling for a cloudy, otherwise depressing Monday. Needless to say, I can't wait for more days in the sun and I am ready for summer! Ready when you are London!


On a completely different note, I always felt like the lifestyle part of this blog was lacking and I really want to change that so expect more posts about my days, perhaps some restaurant reviews and even movies! What do you think about that? Let's see how I get on!

Tell me, what did you do this weekend? Was it crazy warm where you were too?
Let me know below! Thanks for reading beauties and happy Monday!

xoxo

  28. Seems like you guys had an amazing day :) It was quite warm in Croatia, too :) My mom, my dog and I went for a walk, and I was wearing a tank top, which was super exciting :D I'm pretty sure I knew you were Brazilian, but I guess I never see it coming :D I would love to see some lifestyle posts :) Maybe your favourite movies would be a great start, but restaurant reviews seem really fun too :) xx

  29. Oh, God, barbecue, and I'm starving! I'd give anything for something grilled at this point! :D And don't be so surprised, my country's tradition on Mother's day is much different - we celebrate it somewhere in the winter, and the custom is for the kids to tie a knot around the mother's ankles and get a gift from her in return, believe it or not. ;)
