Leave for Vienna tomorrow. It better fucking snow because I had to dish out 350euro for snow chains!
What I was last to find out was that with the Mini Cooper D, you cant just grab the cheap set of snow chains. Noooooo, You have to get special ones to fit the special tires. Thats so absurd. But I love my car, so I'm just going to let it go.
I still haven't packed or anything related to leaving town for 10 days, but I have about 4 hours tomorrow morning to stress about that. As for my Timberlands...Looks like they will see another winter holiday...
So, since I wont be able to stalk my fav blogs, don't be surprised to see your hits drop drastically. But mid January I'll be back and will be sure not to let any of you down!
Dear Boots, Please arrive today or tomorrow. You see, I ordered you for my trip to Vienna and I leave on Saturday. You boast of being made of fine leather and lined with real shearling. You come from a little French Boutique where I also spent too much on Cashmere scarves, hats gloves and socks. You were supposed to arrive today, but the shop hasn't called yet. Please don't let me down dear Boots. You are a part of my New Fashion Sense. Please don't send me on another Winter Holiday in my Timberlands. In St Petersburg I was embarrassed walking into the Mariinsky Theatre. In Munich they squeaked while walking around Ludwig Castle.
Buy 10 things in 100% Cashmere (Actually, I can cross this off my list. I got a little crazy in a very nice boutique)
Go to the hairdressers and sort my shit out.
Get a better sense of style. Very connected to the idea of stepping things up a notch. I look good, but I could look soooo much better if I'd just put some effort in.
Be nicer to my mom. Okay, be more tolerant of my mom. Okay, find a way to get my mom out of my house and into her own apartment so she can stop driving me crazy and my husband I can start having sex again.
Sort out my husband's style. He is a partner now and almost all of our friends are loaded/nobles. Its time to retire the Old Navy Jeans...
Okay, Decorno opened her mouth about summer 2008 and the next thing I knew I was sending a deposit on an apartment.
Reason: Its one of the most beautiful places I've visited.
Its worth mentioning that my husband and I are completely against going to the same country twice. Having said that, we went to Croatia last summer, swam and snorkeled in crystal blue water, sunbathed nude on deserted beaches and ate fresh fish like pigs for 25euro together. And we did it all in mid August smack dab in the middle of peak season. Did I mention we can even get there by car?
Plus, where else can you get an apartment like this...
And have a 360degree view from the terrace like this...
Of things like this...
All for less than 500euro? Nowhere. At least no place as safe, clean and accessible.
Croatia is hot. If you have the chance, Go. If you don't, know that you are seriously missing out.
PS I've rented the annex. The main house which sleeps 2 in the bedroom and 2 on a sofa bed is still available and is also quite nice.
