The Luxe Edition  🌌 Step into the story: Beauty is everywhere 📷 Places & Luxe Experiences // #TheLuxeEdition 📌 London //@ZahraofLondon ✉️

This could be your new brunch spot 🍳 // I went to a delightful tasting session at London's only Danish restaurant @snapsandrye with @govisitdenmark .
It's a Notting hill gem, & voted as one of the top restaurants in the Evening Standard. Full of delicious & healthy comfort food. And the owners are wonderful!
I learnt all about Smørrebrød - Danish open faced rye bread sandwiches. As well as the history & techniques of creating Danish delicacies.
We had a competition to see who could come up with a creative topping design. There were many beautiful designs around the table. Loved @pasiondeviajar_ design with carrots as roses. I didn't expect to win, but was delighted to be chosen for a trip to Copenhagen. So lucky! 😊. A big thank you to @snapsandrye and @govisitdenmark for a special evening 😊🌹Ps. You can read the full post (& see my design) on

“These places are time machines, spaceships, story-makers, secret-keepers. They are dragon-tamers, dream-catchers, fact-finders, and safe places. They are full of infinite possibilities and tales worth taking home.” ― Jen Campbell, The Bookshop Book. •

Ah bookstores, I always have a bit of a soft spot for them. This one in Blackheath is cute, it feels as if there are some magic books hiding in there. ⚡️ Ps. Check out my stories from today, some @venchi1878 magic happening in @coventgardenldn 👌

Ps. This pic of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque was taken on my trip to Abu Dhabi a couple of years ago. A beathtaking architectural masterpiece made of white marble, still one of my fave places on this planet. What's one of yours?

Elegant vintage cars always add a bit of dreamy nostalgia. They take us back down the roads of imagination of times gone by. (Big history fan here) // Thanks to my friend @justefe for showing me this spot 🍃. •

A favourite reflection:
If you really want something in this world,' said Olga simply, 'you'll never get it by sitting down and waiting. But if you go out and do things there's no knowing where you'll end up.
Michael Bond, The Tales of Olga Da Polga

Cambridge on a glorious summer day about a month ago. It's lovely! Friends, punting, exploring & laughter. Fab trip. Sadly no good shots due to harsh lighting. This was the last one I took, before we rushed into a taxi to the station. There's only so much a filter can do. Cambridge, I'll be back! ⚡️. Ps there's a new post up about Rangers house & the Rose garden in Greenwich (link in bio). I'll have one up for Cambridge too. Have a read :) Oh and if you have recommendations for day trips out of share 😊🍃 •

A (long) Reflection via my fave @idillionaire:. •

You become a master of your life when you learn how to control where your attention goes.
Value what you give your energy & time to.

You're donating the time of your existence to things you give your attention to.
Make sure what's taking your energy is worth your life. There's just too many distractions going on. I consider anything that doesn't grow you, evolve you, and make you better a distraction. How many more years will go by doing the same old thing?
We all have the same 24hrs, but what makes us so different is how we choose to invest our time. The biggest asset you have is your attention. Anyone who is aware understands that attention is energy. It's more powerful than currency. It controls it! How you use this powerful energy will determine the kind of reality you experience.
Your attention is being diverted from you when you invest your time and attention on aimless conversations, purposeless events, and negative people who have no goal. Many people are doing meaningless things to fill the void of the inner emptiness.
You can't avoid who you are. You have to get to know yourself. Understand your life.
Find your purpose and be motivated to make changes today, so that you can be thankful for the years to come.

Anytime you're doing something, ask yourself how is this benefiting my life. This is the fastest way to realize if you're being distracted or wasting time.
Start investing in your life; read more often, relax to connect with your inner self, question everything, be aware, be curious, explore reality, create your ideas, and gain knowledge to apply.
Your time is now. 🍃

Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.

Bloom wherever you are planted// • 🍃Nature's ardent poetry earlier today, each petal an eloquent verse. I'm speechless.

Bookworms! Share a favourite book? Perhaps one you are reading right now , or one that made you giggle, think etc. For some reason I feel like reading something by Carlos Ruiz Zafon🍃📜 • “Come to the book as you would come to an unexplored land. Come without a map. Explore it and draw your own map.” ~ Stephen King

The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.
