Living in London

Rolls Royce Yes, this actually happened. I got to drive a Rolls Royce around London, and it is as good as it sounds – even better.  H. R Owen are the world’s best dealership for Rolls Royce, located in the heart of Mayfair’s Berkley Square.  I know it is so far fetched thinking about buying one, however if you do, this is the place to purchase it from, as the guys are the best in the business, literally. For souls like me, who are not planning on buying anything more than a fancy pair of shoes, this is what it…

You have now taken the first step towards your AirBnB hosting experience – made up your spare room, or your flat, and ready to get that listing going.  Setting up your basic listing is easy, a few steps and then you are ready to go. However, in a place like London competition is high. So how do you make it stand out? When you are a new host, you do not get a star rating It might be difficult for your first guest to make a booking without any references. AirBnB gives you the option to get references from your…

Becoming a host on AirBnB can be an interesting decision. I started hosting back in 2015 but it took me awhile to get onboard with the idea. Strangers? In my home? Not for me…However, I gave it some more thought and given how many people are doing it, I convinced myself to get over the bias and give it a try.  I love  meeting new people and making friends, and I thought that through hosting on AirBnB I can give it a try. At the end of the day, if it did not work out, I could always take the…

If you are not in the UK, you probably wonder ‘what is the fuss all about’. Well, let me tell you – Chelsea Flower show is huge, huger than huge, it is an absolute ‘stop everything you are doing’ it is Chelsea Flower show time. Let’s talk about it and why is it so important, and why it should be on your must visit list every year if you are in town when it is happening. First, it is all about them flowers. Pretty, colourful and the best of British. Flowers are a big thing in London (and I assume…

I have dreamt about this car, because it is stunning. If I could be a car, I would be a Morgan, duhhh. I could not express my excitement when the London Morgan got in touch and offered to give me a car for a few days to try it out. Dreams do come true. They are located in Astwood Mews, right behind Gloucester road station. A side track here but even the garage for the cars is in a stunning location., so the experience of picking it up is beauty on beauty. What is a Morgan car? I met Gregory,…

Hever Castle is located in Kent, an hour drive from Central London. It sits on give or take 700 years of history and 125 acres of pure beauty. I wanted to showcase a few day trips that one can take for a quick weekend getaway, and the first one is London to Hever. Driving through 100s of years old forests, through winding roads, surrounded by scattered houses is pure bliss for me. I also got to do this in a Morgan, which added to the beauty of the experience. The car is just made for the country side (visually) and…

How do I find the spots to photograph? OK, this one is a bit more tricky. I get it, you want THAT pink house but searching google maps, seemingly does not return the same precise location as when you search ‘Big Ben’.  There are multiple ways of figuring it out. Option 1 – you know the approximate area. Get your walking boots on and get cracking walking about and looking for it 🙂 I do that so often. It allows you to get to know a new area, find other pretty spots in it, and is also good for your…

Recently, I have started getting a lot of questions about editing my photos on Instagram  and camera tips. I am always so genuinely delighted when people ask.  However, I am also surprised about it. I always think that I am not a professional, and I feel like I am constantly winging it (imposter syndrome anyone else? 🙂 ). I see a lot of people sharing editing tutorials on Insta etc… and I never felt like my knowledge (or final product) was good enough, for me to share tips on editing. So, I am writing this article to answer all the…

It is I’m moving to London’s 2nd birthday and I cannot express how excited I am, about the journey we have been on together. Last year, I wrote a post about my learnings from year 1. This year, I wanted to share some behind the scenes and thoughts overall on the blogging/Instagramming life. My year in  review: I reached 23 000 followers on Instagram and thank you for each and every one of you, for being there, engaging and spreading love and positivity in this world I got featured in Time Out London print edition (can’t link to that unfortunately…

I love plants. I think they have also learnt to love me, as they do not seem to die at an alarming rate in my hands anymore. Last week, I got invited to a really cool activity for any plant lover – build my own herb garden in a pot with Lavender Green Flowers. I wanted to share this article today and celebrate Earth Day, doing my bit, one plant a time. Lavender Green Flowers are known to be one of the best florists around, with more than 25 years experience in decorating exclusive events. The team are really passionate…
