Afternoon Tea at The Four Seasons London Park Lane ♥️✨ . If you’re looking for somewhere classy and relaxed for afternoon tea, with great food and tea, head on over to the Amaranto Lounge @fslondon for these goodies. You’ll find a beautifully presented classic afternoon tea, with generously-filled finger sandwiches, warm scones and delicious desserts, as well as freshly brewed @jingtea , all served in gorgeous @wedgwood china. There are some wonderful little touches that really made this afternoon tea experience stand out. Firstly, the selection of jams is creative and so tasty: the Mandarin and Cedar Pine Nut Marmalade and Strawberry and Tahitian Vanilla Jam both accompany the scones so well. Secondly, as well as the four cakes and pastries, of which the Pecan Brittany Sable (hazelnut praline, caramel) and the Mandarin (mandarin, coffee, gingerbread spice) were my favourites, you are also served full slices of Piedmont Hazelnut, Orange and Saffron marble cake, an unusual but exquisite flavour combination! We enjoyed both the traditional and vegetarian selections, and I liked that the vegetarian menu is not only available online but also printed in the menu you are given on arrival. Service was excellent, warm and attentive. We’ve been here before and we’ll definitely be back too! . . . #afternoonteadiaries #afternoontea #tea #teatime #butfirsttea #timefortea #afternoontealondon #afternoonteatime #londontea #teaparty #hightea #creamtea #scones #sconesandtea #sconesandjam #sconeswithjamandcream #teaandcake #sweettreats #greatbritishfood #golondonfood #instafood #mysecretlondon #londonfood #londonblogger #londonfoodie #foodphotography #visitlondon #londonbylondoners #toplondonrestaurants #fslondon

It’s really tricky to avoid the annoying reflection from the glass windows at Sky Garden. But this photo looking up the river towards Tower Bridge had a little less of that reflection than some of my other shots.

When you live 15 minutes away from a canal — to take a boat trip it’s a must😍 Yesterday finally I did it! ⠀ So, there is a @goboatldn right next to the Paddington station (Merchant Square). You can rent there a boat up to 3 hours: 1 hour — £59-79 2 hours — £89-109 3 hours — £119-139 The boat can have up to 8 people, so in the end it can cost around £20 per person, which is amazing! ⠀ In my opinion, 2 hours was more than enough👌🏻 The best thing is that you drive yourself. I think it’s a cool experience (though I didn’t drive😂) You can also bring with you your music, food and drinks, which is also cool☺️ ~ Итак, вчера я впервые: 1. Покаталась на лодочке по каналу Риджентс (было бы странно не сделать этого, живя уже почти год в 15 минутах от него)🚤 2. Укололась крапивой, пытаясь удержать лодку возле «берега», так как навстречу шла другая😂🌵 Руку сначала дико высыпало, все горело, я испугалась. Но через час прошло😅 ⠀ Я очень советую эти лодочки, если будете в Лондоне летом! Это кайф, так как управляешь всем сам👩🏻‍✈️ ⠀ Снять можно такую хоть вдвоём, хоть ввосьмером.

▪️ONE OF THE ICONIC SYMBOLS OF THE CITY ▪️ ⠀ It’s hard to imagine London without the legendary black cab, so today we’ll tell you a couple of interesting facts about this particular city car. ⠀ ✔️“Cab” was short for “cabriolet”, a French verb for “to leap”, which was a type of taxi and what one did to exit them. ⠀ ✔️The classic London cab - the Austin FX4 car - is considered the most recognizable taxi in the world (and the most expensive!) ⠀ ✔️There are approximately 21,000 black cabs in London! ⠀ ✔️To become a cabman, you must pass a difficult exam on the knowledge of London and its surroundings. So, you need to know the details of all the 25 thousand London streets, taking into account all the detours, and be able to find any building. ⠀ ✔️Technically, it’s against the law for you to yell “Taxi!” to get their attention. If you see a cab with a lit sign, just hold out your arm to signal them. ⠀ Do you like this iconic car?⭐️ ⠀ 📸 Photo credits: @levanterman #QuestLondon_News

The real destination of your trip is not a place but a new view on life 🙌 ⠀ I truly realized it after traveling the world for 6 months. In the beginning of the trip I didn't notice any changes, but later I realized how many shifts and changes in my mindset I started seeing, how many new ideas and aspirations crystallized and I can say I didn't come back the same person I was leaving. ⠀ Traveling makes me broad-minded and just aware that there are so many different people with all their different lives, everyday ups and downs, lifestyles, houses, food and it's so amazing how diverse our world is and certain small things are not worth being concerned about them. ⠀ 🌟And what does traveling give you? 🌟 ⠀ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #londonlifestyle #bestoflondon #londonstreets #exploringlondon #londongram #londoncitylife #londonbylondoners #londonpics #londonguru #discoverlondon #secretlondon #mysecretlondon #mydarlinglondon #prettycitylondon #londondisclosure #humlondon #itssolondon #loves_london #londongram #londonlove #mylondon #justtravel #explorerbabes #darlingescape #traveleverywhere #thetraveltag #curlytravelled

Grind is a popular coffee, cocktails & all day dining place that is all over London in places like Shoreditch, London Bridge, Clerkenwell, Soho, Greenwich and loads more. ❤️ In 2018 they opened their largest ever site in Greenwich that has a cocktail bar, lounge, open conservatory space and a take away coffee bar! ☕ The interior is very contemporary styled tables, rustic floors and walls with bright neon lights that make up witty quotes! 🤙🏼 Their menu is classic with favourites like eggs Florentine, Pancakes or a Full English for brunch and the all day menu serves a classic cheeseburger, flat iron steak or even Prawn Tagliatelli. 🦐🍟 They also do bottomless Prosecco on the weekend which I mean, is a win win situation. It is so bright and airy it would be the perfect place for a birthday or celebration. 🥂 Grind are also renowned for their coffee and have recently brought out compostable organic coffee pods that can fit in an Nespresso coffee machine so you can have it at home. I’ve only been in half of their locations so definitely adding the rest to my list because they are defo a go to place in London! 👍🏼 . . . . . . #foodinlondon #foodie #lunch #london #londonplacestogo #hotspots #breakfast #londonlife #prettylittlelondon #londonsnapper #instatravel #mysecretlondon #londonvisionaries #sliceofthecity #lunch #londonrecomends #recommendations #ilovelondon #igerslondon #food #foodblogger #blogging #eatingforthegram #drinkingfortheinsta #grind #greenwichgrind #greenwich #southeast #eat #breakfast

The latest offering from the Big Mamma Group, Circolo Populare is a Sicilian treat. Expect a packed menu, with everything from burrata filled with pesto, to pizza with fresh truffle & truffle sauce, to ‘silk handkerchief pasta’. Just as packed is the decor - paintings, flowers, and the multitude of bottles - and the atmosphere. No surprise that this new restaurant is lively every night. 📷 @gourmet_guy . . #prettycitylondoneats #londonrestaurants #onthetable #londoneats #londonbrunch #breakfastlondon #morningslikethese #forkyeah #foodiegram #londonfoodbabes #onmyplate #londonfoodie #mysecretlondon

The now so impressive skyline of Canary Wharf used to be wasteland only 30 years ago! 🏙 In the 1990's, Margaret Tatcher's bold decision in the midst of a financial crisis to replace the redundant docks into a financial district seemed like suicide. Fast forward to 2019 and the once forgotten island is now a bustling part of London where major companies' headquarters are located. The evening I spent roaming through the streets filled with people getting their afterwork drinks was refreshing and made me wish I was an expat, hehe. 😅 #regentstreet #stpancras #stpaulscathedral #stpauls #picadilly #nottinghill #camden #canarywharflondon #camdemmarket #canarywharf #nationalhistorymuseum #bigben #shard #gb #reinounido #londonvibes #london #bbctravel #visitlondon #londoncitylife #thingstodoinlondon #londonbloggers #londonforyou #londonarchitecture #ilovelondon #igotlondonskills #londres #uk #uk_shooters #mysecretlondon

STUDIO LIFE: This gorgeous Peony in our Four Seasons Secret Garden on Kynance Mews is called "Bowl of Beauty". Isn't it a fitting name? She really is a beauty. What's most interesting about her is that she blooms only during the day, then closes up into a bowl every evening! Don't believe us? Come to see for yourself. 😉 _________________________________ #mewsings #allwhatsbeautiful #underthefloralspell #englishgarden #gardeninspiration #peonies #traveldreamseekers #wheretofindme #TLPics #theprettycities #guardiancities #instabritain #urbangreen #lovegreatbritain #prettylittlelondon #prettycitylondon #travelerinlondon #mysecretlondon #flowerstagram #flowersofinstagram #flower_daily #gardening #gardendesign #gardenerslife #colorcolourlovers #flowersmakemehappy #kynancemews #pinkpinkpink

Lunch in Richmond . We went to Richmond yesterday to spend the day, I LOVE this part of London (technically not London? 🤔)! Stopped in front of the river to have lunch which was the biggest chicken schnitzel I have ever seen 😋😋 . Finn didn’t want any, he was more interested in feeding ours to us...this child is such a feeder!! 😂😂 It was the first time we all sat down and ate a full meal TOGETHER without having to run around after him ❤️ . #oureverydaymoments #familyphotographer #littlemomentsofhappiness #familymoments #momentsofmine #candidchildhood #candidkids #runwildmychild #wildandbravelittles #adventuresofchildren #thehonestlens #thehonestcapture #honestmoms #modernmom #ukparentingblog #brasileirosemlondres #blogmaterno #maternidadefeliz #richmondpark #sundaylunching #mysecretlondon #wheretofindme #igotlondonskills

Perché l’amore è un sole, ma anche il sole, a volte ha bisogno d’acqua per poter dare colore ai fiori, perché l’amore è una passeggiata e in quanto tale a volte si inciampa tra i sassi a volte si cade e qualche metro lo si fa rotolando, perché possiamo allacciarci bene le scarpe e stare attenti a dove si mettono i piedi ma il sentiero della vita non è tutto un cammino alcune tratte prevedono di saper sdraiarsi in mezzo ad un burrone. Dopo il colpo di fulmine iniziano i temporali ma è proprio qui che si vede l’amore, quando si sceglie di ballare insieme sotto la nostra pioggia. 🖤
