Not Your Normal Afternoon Tea | Sketch London

Afternoon Tea at sketch london

Afternoon Tea at Sketch London has been on the radar ever since I stumbled upon photos of their toilets on Instagram.

(Instagram has been a great source of inspiration. From discovering quirky places to motivating me when I feel low. It’s definitely had more of a positive influence in my life. For sure, there has been moments where I’ve felt insecure looking at all the pretty pictures people post but I’ve been trying to focus on the positives).

The place is as weird on the inside at the display on the outside. It’s not your normal afternoon tea. The experience at Sketch London is abnormal and out of this world.

I love my morning tea and I love it milky. No compromises on sugar nor milk ♥ I feel like coffee is taking over the world by storm because all I see is #coffegram. Are you a Tea or a Coffee person?

How I Deal With Anxiety | 7 Simple Tips For You To Try

There are times when anxiety gets the better of me. It makes me feel useless and it sucks. Things get so bad that my self-esteem hits rock bottom.

Last time I spoke about living with anxiety and the trigger points. Today’s post is all about dealing with anxiety and the things that help me keep it under control.


You are not going to master your life in one day. Just relax.

Master the day, then just keep doing that everyday. 


My favourite ‘Things To Do In Richmond’

Richmond giving a taste of country and city life

Don’t give up on your dreams, or else your dreams will give up on you.

I’ve been meaning to visit Richmond Park for the longest time and it’s always ended up being one of those things that I’ve left for tomorrow and that tomorrow never came. Richmond is an hour away from where I live so I can’t even blame it on the distance.

Well, that’s changed now. II’ve been here 3 times in the space of one week.

You can take the girl out of the country (in my case village) but you can’t take the country out of the girl. 

Richmond is a perfect blend of both the worlds. Since moving to London, I’ve been so immersed in city life that whenever I find glimpses of village life, the village kid in me jumps out of excitement.

Richmond is buzzing with so many activities. I feel there’s something for everyone here. One whole day is not enough to explore Richmond.

Richmond offering the best of both worlds

In today’s post I’m sharing my current favourite spots in Richmond.

Living With Anxiety And Its Consequences

 Our anxiety does not come from THINKING about the future but from WANTING to control it.

Living with anxiety and its effects

‘Anxiety’, such a popular word isn’t it? I’m sure most of you are familiar with anxiety related symptoms because according to guardian; – “Up to a third of the population will suffer from an anxiety disorder or panic attacks at some point in their life”. 

My physiotherapist and swimming instructor mentioned that my body is stiff. I must relax and loosen up a bit. Now, I do tell my brain to relax but the communication doesn’t seem to be flowing well between my brain and body. Result –> my muscles are still tensed.
