almost time to say "see you later".

Say cheese!! We never ended up going to the GC and Sedona today but still had a great day with a dinner party and loads and loads of shopping. Not long left till it's time to head back to London so you will all be spared from my constant updates from here .. Lol. I just can't help it .. When I like something, I like to share it :) Starting to feel a bit sad now aswell .. Have really had a great time here which makes me not want to go back at all .. and on top of that I hate goodbyes. Guess it'll have to be a "see you later" instead ... which means it's time to start saving for another trip to here!

Good night America .. Ta-da for now! / P. x

beads galore indeed!

OMG!! I stepped in to heaven for 2 hours today and came out with the world biggest grin. My auntie took me to a huge bead store in Phoenix today and I knew, from the first second, that I was going to spend a lot of money in there. The beads were absolutely fantastic and the staff were so, so helpful and polite. I have been to quite a few bead stores during the past years but this one had a whole different atmosphere .. I absolutely loved it! And OMG to all the prices too .. it's so much cheaper than London.
Thank you Beads Galore and auntie for a great day and yayy for all my beautiful findings!! I wont show them now but you'll see what I mean once I'm done with them. They are so amazing! 

Love / P. x

i'm sad right now.

We decided to stay in Phoenix and not go to LA this Friday. I am happy I get to spend more time with my family .. but I am extremely sad that I won't be able to meet my best friend. I guess you can't have the cake and eat it too .. (does that even make sense in this situation?).

Sorry my love .. Hopefully we get to meet up soon anyways. I love you bestie ♥ / P. x

Good morning London and good evening USA! It's so hard to keep in touch with everyone from here because of the time differences .. but it's all good because when everyone's getting ready to go to bed the sun is shiiiiining here! Oh yeah!

Had a very relaxing day today .. Spent the whole morning with my sis by the pool and even encouraged the rest of the family to join us too! We then decided to take a trip to Chandler to get my dad a case for the iPad2 we got him for his birthday (speaking of .. haven't put any images up from that night yet .. hmm). Anyways .. like usual I ended up spending bucks and eating good food. One place I wanted to mention in particular is a "bread shop" called Wildflower. It's actually a restaurant where they bake all their breads fresh in store .. and the selection of soups, salads and sandwiches are so, so yummy! I ended up getting a thai coconut chicken soup with a Wildflower house salad. The best bit is the way the serve the soup!

even the butter is wipped and all fluffy!

So if you ever come across a Wildflower make sure you pop in and try their menu .. Doesn't look too exciting from the outside but I promise you that it is. Two thumbs up! / P. x

la dolce vita.

What a beautiful place this is .. People truly LIVE their lives to the fullest here. Been to so many amazing places and met so many kind ppl over the past days and I should've been better with updating the blog but there just isn't any time!! Lol

Got back a while ago from a great dinner party at some friends in Scottsdale. Have been out shopping and exploring all day and tomorrow it's time for some more pool chill before heading out again. Will try to post some images tomorrow too but here's one from today .. us in the car on our way to Scottsdale.

i love you ♥

Good morning Phoenix! This jet-lag is making me wake up at 7am every morning .. That's really not something that comes naturally to me. Haha .. But I guess it's good in a way since the days feel much longer now and that's exactly what we need while being here. :) Went on a late-night food shopping spree last night and bought loads of goodies to eat at home. Americano mode? Hell yeah! Started my morning with two corn dogs .. Yum!

What I really wanted to do this morning was to dedicate this space to my beautiful angel, my mom .. It's her birthday today. She was without doubt the most beautiful woman that ever stepped foot on this planet and I am so proud to be able to call her my mom. It's really hard on days like this as you don't really know what to do .. It's your bday so I am naturally really happy but not a day goes by when I don't think about you and miss you .. and even though you're not here today we are celebrating this day with you.

A whole lot of people around the world are spending this day in your remembrance mami .. That's how much of an impact you've had on us and how special you are. We love you from the bottom of our hearts my angel.

Happy Birthday  / Parisa X

not bad .. not bad at all!

i love you!!

Oh yeah baby!! I am finally here in Arizona and have already broken my diet so many times. Lol .. Would you be able to resist? Have had a wonderful day so far with the most important man in my life .. my dad!! Weather hasn't quite been on our side since we arrived but it's still so much nicer than London. It's going to be proper sunny from tomorrow though and that's when you'll find me by the pool :))

Gonna head back out for dinner soon so I'll catch up with you all later! Much love from the States / P. x

arizona bound!!

I can't believe the day is finally here .. but it is. I'm going to the States!!! And I just realised that I haven't written here for a week. This just shows how busy I have been lately .. We've moved houses, loads at work and loads of things to prepare for the trip. And now when all the stress from airport checks and security is over I am finally kicking back and relaxing for a good 2,5 weeks .. :) Will fill the blog with images so you don't need to miss me too much. Lol

So adios my fellow Londoners .. Be good and don't do anything I wouldn't! Love / P. x

it's only showbiz.

She's a character that is often misunderstood .. I admit I have raised an eyebrow or two myself at times, but I have to say that Lady Gaga is truly sensational. Came across a couple of interviews with her and realised that I have never actually heard her speak about herself and her work. The girl is frikkin adorable!

Yes she is outrageous but she explains that she does it so that other people that are feeling like they need to express themselves have someone to look up to. Basically if Lady Gaga does it then it's ok to be the way you want to be .. because she does it and is selling diamond across the globe! That for me is such a beautiful statment .. or cause might be a better word. Her obsession with haute couture is a part of her character .. a promise to keep the true essence of showbiz alive and not let her fans see her doing ordinary, boring things in ordinary clothes. She is being her own self and expressing herself in a really remarkable way.

She donates a lot of the money she makes into anti-bullying campaigns and is a spokeswoman for the gay community. A lot of her concert profits also go to creating new props and costumes to ensure every single show is extra-ordinary. How amazing is that ... ?

I can ramble on for ages now because I have been truly impressed by this woman. Yes I have always known that she is a true practitioner of the arts and that she is extremely talented and creative .. never did I know I could expect all of this from this Italian girl though ..

(Telephone) hats off for you Gaga. We love you! ♥ / P. x

Oh I spoke to soon .. Was cuddeling up with some nice food and wine last night when Selma screamed from the kitchen .. "Ahhh maaaay gaaaahd" .. YES! We got over flooded .. Isn't that just perfect? Our sink in the kitchen had been making some rumbeling noises for the past weeks which we naturally just avoided. And instead we got to stay up all night to empty the sink off water and "supervise" the situation. Lol .. I'm laughing now but it really wasn't funny then. There was water all over our kitchen and living room floor and we wasted every towel in the house to prevent the water from spreading. And then we had to deal with rude out-of-hour plumbers that were just plain RUDE! Thankfully everything is under control now and we have a CIA style plumbing team coming over soon!

But what do we do with the smell though ..? Oh how joyful .. Happy Weekend everyone!! / P. x

missoni heaven.

If you follow my blog you probably already know that my favourite daily piece on my feet are my Converse. Must say that I, for a slight second, was in heaven when I saw this collaboration with Missoni on saks.com. The price-tag is $200 .. a bit heafty for a pair of Converse maybe, but LOOK AT THEM! Imagine these with washed out denim shorts and a transparent shirt this summer .. Yum ...

Less than two weeks left till my trip to the States .. and YES I am tempted to bring these babies home with me. Only time will tell I guess .. Lol.

It's the start of the weekend now and my sister just came home with a bottle of red for us to chill with. So that's exactly what I'm going to do now! Enjoy your Friday eve people! / P. x

Busy day tomorrow so nipping off to bed. Goodnight world! / P. x
