With only 52 days to go to my annual Lima trip (not that I am counting!) I find myself thinking about life on the beach constantly!!!
I do have quite a few pieces for the beach in Lima but each year I like to add a few more just to keep it interesting. Heidi Klein always plays a big part in my beach wardrobe, I have bikinis and hats that are probably eight years old but still look great.
The first three photos are some of my Heidi favourites the rest are things I would like for this year! I particularly LOVE the Maya Bay Glitter espadrilles, I can see them now with tanned legs!!

Well sadly this is the final instalment for this trip as I am now back home with a lovely tan and happy memories.
No trip to Lima is ever complete without a trip to MATE, which is Mario Testino’s gallery in Barranco. Being from the area he started MATE to help fellow artists but thankfully you get to see his work.
The last few days were a race to grab as much beach time as possible whilst enjoying time with family. Happy days!!
I was given a painting on my last visit by an artist who happens to be a very lovely lady. She very kindly named the boat in the painting after me and now it is finally on our wall.
Then it was off to the airport in a mad rush but a very comfortable journey home with KLM as always. I am still waiting for my suitcase though!!
Last trip to the beach.
Coffe on the beach!

The journey home with KLM, Victoria Beckham & Acne
Well its that time of year again and here I am sitting writing this in Lima, not only in Lima but on the beach. The sun is shining what more could I want. I have had an amazing year which ended with good news all around.
I travelled as always with KLM, efficient and reliable! I am always excited to get to our flat on the beach, the view is spectacular and I instantly relax. There is always so much that I want to do and see here but as always I never want to leave the beach. My mission is to find a new poncho, you can’t beat a great poncho they are so much better than coats.
This is only the first of many posts so I hope you like sharing my “Lima Life”
The view from the balcony, not bad at all!!
Breakfast Bellini’s on the balcony, its a tradition.
Flags in our neighbourhood Peru and Punta Hermosa
You can’t visit Peru without drinking a cold Cusquena!!
After all of that hard work it was off to the beach, I will be working very hard on a tan!
On Saturday we went for drink at the bar in B Hotel in Barranco. We enjoyed it so much we are going to try the restaurant this week.
“Me” already for Sunday’s 93rd birthday party (more of that later) wearing an Isabel Marant playsuit and my new Sophia Webster sandals (love them) The hat is from a shop in Lima called Praia Brava Bikini’s, it also had gorgeous woven bags so I may be going back!
As always at this time of year I am looking for additions to my “Lima Dreaming” wardrobe!! The clock is ticking and it is only 3 weeks away , not that I am counting at all.
A few weeks ago I became the owner of this beautiful pale blue bracelet and not just because its my favourite colour. My wrists are tiny and most bracelets are massive so they never fit me unless they are customised. This one is different, the St Christopher & Heidi Klein pendants hang from a coloured strap that just ties around your wrist, so it fits all sizes. As we all know St Christopher is the patron saint of travellers, what more could we need.
There is so much more available at www.heidiklein.com
St Christopher Wrap Bracelet in Blue £16 here
Orange £16 here
Taupe £16 here
Yellow £16 here
Pink £16 here
Grey £16 here
