Flashback in summer back in Denmark visiting my soul sister Sariati. Her mother babysat me and my brothers when we were much younger, as my parents went to work. I have always loved this countryhouse because it reminds me of weekend countryside breaks in England... that much needed time to recharge during a long weekend before heading back into city life again. 🤗There was a huge trampoline outside Sariati’s back garden which I LOVE bouncing on and laughed so much just being silly. Trampolines have this effect on me. 😂 That day we were preparing for a huge party with the neighbours and had dinner together in a huge tent. Looovely. Soaking up Scandinavian sunshine felt good and I would love to visit Denmark again. Thank you for your hospitality! It’s a good thing my longtime friends are spread around the globe. Life is beautiful.🎊 . . . . . . . . . . #weekendvibes #weekend #countryside #denmark #scandinavian #home #livinglife #lovelife #lifeisgood #lifeisgood #happiness #happy #positive #inspiration #inspire #travel #travelersnotebook #tan #danish #summervibes #flashback #inspire #reflection #relax #naturelover #freshair #memories #moments #traveller #gratitude #joy #bliss
“Have you ever noticed the softness of a kitten’s feet? They are like strawberries to hold in one’s hand.” - Anne Douglas Sedgwick What would we do without the tart sweetness of nature’s jewels? I love eating a bowl of raspberries often and cover them with some almond yogurt, sprinkled with cinnamon. Yummy! 🙌🏼Raspberries taste heavenly with chocolate. Some benefits of eating raspberries: - Cancer fighting properties - Maintains cardiovascular health - Improves fertility - Boost memory and mood - Promote healthy tissues and blood vessels - Anti-inflammatory eg. Prevents damage to cell membranes, fortify your immune system and aid digestion - Maintain eye health - Aids in weight loss These lovely soft berries are quite fragile and the best way to eat them is within 1-2 days, or freeze them for your smoothies.

“He who marvels at the beauty of the world in summer will find equal cause for wonder and admiration in winter.” - John Burroughs What are your favourite Winter Wonderland experiences? 🎉 When we go with our friends and experience Winter Wonderland, our inner child comes out to play. Why be serious adults all the time when we can play when our hearts call for it. So much fun and hey, life isn’t meant to be serious and all huffy-puffy, so let’s let loose and live a little!🤩 . . . . . . . . #london #londonlife #lifelessons #winter #winterwonderland #december #fun #funtimes #happy #play #playtime #evening #weekend #positivevibes #inspiration #celebrate
“Love the giver more than the gift.” - Bringham Young London is really good at creating that Christmas mood with fun events and lovely festive decorations. So many goodies, so much time for them lol 😂 I am looking forward to spending time with some lovely people and enjoying the festive vibe during Christmas week. If you think about it, Christmas does not necessarily have to be about exchanging gifts ie. things, although that is nice. If we could simplify Christmas, what would it be? 🎄 I feel Christmas on a deeper level is more like a gathering of friends and family; and exchanging gifts of kindness, cheer and goodwill, while remembering our loved ones who have departed. Some things in life do not have a price on it. Of course yummy food is definitely part of the occasion, wouldn’t you agree. 🤩 What does Christmas mean to you? 🌞 . . . . . . . . . . . #christmas #london #londonlife #life #quotes #lifelessons #christmastime #week #winter #december #joy #reflection #thoughts #gratitude #citylife #qualitytime #happiness #happy #loveislove #love #priceless #enjoy #inspiration #positivevibes #goodies #fabulous #selflove #photography #foodlover #presents
“Breakfast is everything. The beginning, the first thing. It is the mouthful that is the commitment to a new day, a continuing life.” - A A Gill Happy Frosty Monday! What is your favourite breakfast? Happiness is when breakfast is nutritious, yummy and generates a warm fuzzy feeling inside. 🤗 I love poached eggs sprinkled with chilli flakes resting on free-from toast which are spread with grass-fed butter. Must have a generous amount of steamed spinach for greens and add a dollop of chilli oil as a treat. 💥 Squeeze fresh lemon juice all over and that’s Heaven on Earth. How can it get any better than this? 💖☃️ . . . . . . . . . #countryside #breakfast #food #foodporn #nutrition #healthybreakfast #healthyeating #healthybreakfast #yummy #winter #londonlife #life #healthylifestyle #selfcare #happy #positive #inspiration #eat #eggs #delicious #wellness #wellbeing
“Christmas is a season for kindling the fire for hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.” - Washington Irving⭐️ ‘Tis the season for mulled wine and Christmas markets!

Enjoy the little things and let’s indulge in our inner child and have some fun. 🤩 Where are your favourite Christmas markets? ☃️ . . . . . . . #london #quote #christmastime #christmas #december #londonlife #funfunfun #evening #joy #festive #gratitude #favourite #relax #enjoylife #enjoythelittlethings #selflove #star #colours #winter #friday #fridaynight #lights #star
“There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.” - Thomas Aquinas Feeling the festive season meeting up with a valued friend from my past life, who flew in from Singapore on business with his colleague. I met them both and showed them around Piccadilly as they were here for only three nights. It has been 12 years since we used to work together and we have not spoken since I moved to London. It was good catching up from where we left off as if there was no gap in over a decade. 😂 What’s your version of friendship? 💫 . . . . . . . . #lifelessons #life #lifequotes #friendship #friends #london #londonlife #reflection #thoughts #singapore #paddingtonbear #christmastree #christmastime #winter #awesome #vibes #magic #change #changeisgood #moments #bear #visitlondon #memories
“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” - Winston Churchill Tonight is frostier than others and I didn’t have my gloves with me. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Walking around this area and looking at Churchill reminds me of how much I love being in this country and living in this beautiful city. There are great opportunities everywhere despite what is going on in the political arena. This Christmas season, let us reflect on how blessed we are and how we can contribute more to the lives of others. 💖 Have a good night everyone. 🌺 . . . . . . . . . . #london #londonlife #reflection #thoughts #inspiration #positivevibes #positive #christmas #christmastime #life #gratitude #lovelife #thursday #evening #mindset #blessed #thinking #citylife #city #frosty #winter #thoughtoftheday #quotes #quoteoftheday #love #givingback #payitforward #entrepreneur
“Holding on to anything is like holding your breath. You will suffocate. The only way to get anything in the physical universe is by letting go of it. Let go and it will be yours forever.” - Deepak Chopra It was divine timing being in the presence of Deepak Chopra, one of the greatest spiritual warriors of our time. I feel blessed learning something new from a different perspective. I love listening to him share his wisdom when he comes here every year. Adopt the mindset of a beginner and a student. Sometimes we are the teacher, sometimes we are the student. 🔆 Some points to ponder and reflect: What are you holding on to that you are not willing to let go of? Perhaps it is hurting you and holding you back. By hanging on to something that does not serve your growth and expansion of your human evolution; or something that you really, really want to happen, it delays the manifestation of your highest desires. Let go of worrying and stay present in the moment, knowing that the Universe is always working for you and supporting you. Trust that you are already OK in the deepest part of you. 🌺 . . . . . . . . . . #lifelessons #life #quoteoftheday #london #londonlife #learning #evolve #consciousness #happiness #peace #love #loveyourself #spirituality #divine #growthmindset #selfcare #soulfood #london #citylife #goals #mindfulness #innerpeace #happy #iloveme #loveyourself #miracle #blessed #amazing #deepakchopra
“If you don’t make the time to work on creating the life you want, you’re eventually going to be forced to spend a LOT of time dealing with a life you don’t want.” - Kevin Ngo Happy Magic Monday! What’s in your fridge? I am obsessed with vegetables. Whenever I see food, I ask “Where are the veggies?” 😂 Fill your fridge as much as possible with nature’s goodness, the more colourful the better. My big Christmassy-looking watermelon will have to stay on the kitchen counter for a while. 🤗 Sometimes I make smoothies like the one in my drink bottle, while other times I cook them. We are not only what we eat, we are what we absorb. What are your favourite vegetables and fruits? 🍉🥦 On another note, it’s happy news today with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on this frosty November.

“Time is the currency of relationships. If you want to invest in your relationships, start by investing your time.” - Dave Willis 🕰 . The Screenwriter, his dad Peter and their family friend Oliver drove down to London for the day for a groove. I met up with them towards the end of the day and it’s lovely to see Peter in my neck of the woods. Like his son, Peter is a great man. 🎅🏼 He reminds me of Santa Claus a lot. 😋 Peter is kind, relaxed and great with his hands ie. a talented architect up to this day and he is into Buddhism, all things Zen and metaphysics, which is up my street. We like to banter and he has a quirky sense of humour, perhaps where The Screenwriter gets it from. 🤔😂 It’s wonderful that The Screenwriter and his parents have a great relationship - fantastic dynamics which I observe - something which I value too. Feeling blessed to be in the presence of these great men. 🙂 What do you value about family? 💖 . . . . . . . #family #love #fatherandson #father #relationshipgoals #couplegoals #november #autumn #relax #relaxing #week #tuesday #warmup #london #londonlife #daddy #greatday #blessed #awesome #awesomeday #qualitytime #positivevibes #positive #thoughts #inspiration #reflection #playtime #happy #life #lifelessons

What about the next 3, 5 or 10 years and beyond? 🙂 You probably have heard these questions before but most people do not know what they really, really want.

“Unsuccessful people make decisions based on their current situation; successful people make decisions based on where they want to be.” - Unknown 💫 When you are in a situation where you must make a decision, which road will you take? Each decision opens a new path that leads you to different outcomes. Be confident in making your own decisions and stop looking for people’s approval for everything because this is your life and you are the co-creator of your life story. 💖 What decisions are you making right now? ✨ . . . . . . . . . . #decisions #choices #journey #life #quote #quotes #lifelessons #thinking #think #positive #positivevibes #inspiration #reflection #thoughts #mylife #mystory #story #livelife #lovelife #mindset #success #goals #lifegoals #journey #spiritual #sunday #sundayvibes #weekend #autumn

“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.” - Edith Wharton ⭐️ Amongst the shops in the neighbourhood, this lovely florist shop is spreading the festive feeling in its special way — by shining so bright, that it can be seen from a far distance.

“The greatest investment and greatest fair deal and enterprise is family, cozy homes. A cozy home is based on cozy people. Cozy people are not brought and imported, they are made from the time of birth to the time of infinity.” - Harbhajan Singh Yogi Wow, it’s quite cold and what a day it has been for me. I hope you all are wrapped up warm! 🍁 This evening, I found a lovely home decor place. Where are your favourite furniture shops and home decor places? 😃 I love exploring them and pick items I want for my current home. Today it’s in lovely Wimbledon. Sometimes I’d look for items for my future mansion. 😂 One of the most important things about a home is to pick a place where you feel good to spend more time in and where you love commuting to and from your destination. It’s about that overall good feeling.
