Fylde Coast Musings vs Cyprus Life – in pictures

Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas at the beginning of March 2004 and spent the next glorious 12 years in Limassol, Cyprus. Sadly, in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We now live on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea just across from Fleetwood. More places to discover and capture on camera!

Carnival time is just around the corner….

Carnival masks, fantasy masks

Yes folks, we’re halfway through the first month of the year which means soon February will arrive and usually that shouts Carnival Time!

But this year in Cyprus, we will be celebrating much later – not until March because Orthodox Easter is some weeks after UK Easter. Carnival in Cyprus will take place for 10 days between 7th – 17th March 2013.

With this in mind I got around to searching on the internet and came across a wonderful website (UK based but Mikaela posts to Europe and Worldwide).

So if you’re looking for a mask with a difference for this years’ celebrations I would suggest your first point of contact is: www.venetianmasquerademasks.co.uk

Take a peep at this one from the Women’s Masks category, and guess what’s really cool about it? You can wear it with your glasses/spectacles! How good is that?:

Black masquerade mask with black and gold braid edging, suitable to be worn with glasses

Black and gold masquerade mask – £12.99

Something for the men, I hear you ask?

Yes, Mikaela has some Men’s Masks too! Guys, if you fancy being every ladies’ “Mr Grey” this year why not treat yourself (and her) to this one? Ooooh, ‘er missus!

Burnished silver Men's  mask

For those fifty shades of grey games! At only £6.99

If you’re looking for something fun and classy but in a lower price range then you can’t go far wrong with this one:

Budget metallic masquerade mask in purple

Purple metallic mask priced at £2.99

So there you are! Carnival can go ahead with a bang this year but without breaking the bank balance……. And, for those of you in Cyprus – you’ve got much more time to prepare. Who will you be this year?
