'The outside world is a dream.
Inside the fireplace is brightly lit, and the log crackles with orange and crimson sparks.
There's a steaming mug in your hands, warming your fingers.
There's a friend sitting across from you in the cozy chair, warming your heart.
There is mystery unfolding.' // Nazarian
#BANK at night --- " #TheRoyalExchange officially opened 1571 by Queen Elizabeth I, was a commercial market place founded by English merchant and financier Sir Thomas Gresham.
Based on the Antwerp Stock Exchange (Bourse) in Belgium, Gresham’s bourse consisted of a trading floor, offices and shops around an open courtyard where merchants and traders could meet and conduct their business.
The original Royal Exchange building was completely destroyed by the Great Fire of London in 1666. As part of his re-building of London, Charles II laid the first foundation stone for the second exchange to be built on the site." 🏦 - There is something beautiful, almost magical about being in #CentralLondon near bank. "Day is over, night has come. Today is gone, what’s done is done. Embrace your dreams, through the night. Tomorrow comes with a whole new light." 😊 🇬🇧 💖 #CityOfLondon#BankOfEngland#BankStation#MagistratesCourt#QueenVictoriaStreet#EC4#WaterLooAndCityLine#NorthernLine#RedBus#DoubleDecker#TransportForLondon#LongExposure#ExploringLondon#Londoner#ILoveLondon#MyLondon#ThisisLondon#London_Enthusiast#LondonByLondoners#LondonLife#LondonDisclosure#LondonVisionaries#LondonGuru#MySecretLondon#LondonBus#LondonBuses#LondonThroughMyCam

LONDON | 19.03.18 | Principal Hotel:
Tonight, I met some amazing women. I volunteered with @fourwallscharity; a small organisation who walk from Kings Cross to Oxford Circus handing out hot food, drinks and warm clothing to the homeless people along the way. Some people went all in for the veggie curry and naan bread on offer; some just wanted a coffee and a chat, but everyone I met was so grateful for what the team are doing. Many people stopped us along to the way to ask how they could get involved or to donate money; one guy told us that his cafe closes at 4.30 and he’d gladly donate leftover food to the cause. People often don’t know what to do when they see a homeless person and there are many very wrong assumptions that I’ve learnt over the years I’ve volunteered at various shelters and soup kitchens. So if you want to help but don’t know where to begin, drop Four Walls an email. I’ll be going along at least once a fortnight to lend a hand, so I hope to see some of you there sometime. London is beautiful when we look up, but we must remember to look down too and not ignore an issue that is right in front of us every single day.
There might be lots of @pfchangs around the world but only recently did we get our version in London with @pfchangsasiantable. No it's not independent, no it's not fine dining, but what you get is solid, reliable pan-Asian cuisine. Lots of powerful and potent flavours in all their dishes to ensure it's never going to be a boring trip to their restaurant.
Throwback to my snowy visit to Tower Bridge because can you COPE with the weather right now? It’s toooo much 😭 ❄️ I’m hiding away with a massive pot of sweet potato soup (as seen on @bethsandland’s insta story last night - it’s an actual dream) and re-watching old Drag Race yassss 💃 I’m only having 20 more minutes of laziness before tackling our bloody mountain of ironing and washing - and I can guarantee 68% of it will be @bridgeroo’s odd socks. Boys are the worst aren’t they? 🧦🧦🧦
Monday: complete. Broke my own ‘no unnecessary expenditure’ rule and indulged in some @nyr_official seaweed & arnica bubble bath and pukka liquorice & cinnamon tea, the latter of which tastes 11/10 wonderfully sweet aka perfect for curbing allll the chocolate cravings. I fell asleep sat upright at 17:30 so it’s time to call it quits and get an early night. 💆🏼♀️💤
I took this photo a month ago today when it seemed Spring was just a day or two away ✨I spent today wading in wellies through slush/ice to my car and clearing the windscreen of snow, day dreaming about this shade of blue ❄️🙈 Two days until I fly to Dubai for 33C weather, a lot of Vitamin D and (hopefully) the bluest skies again ✈️☀️
