London Haunts: the Blues Kitchen

While in London last weekend, I had the pleasure of discovering THE coolest restaurant ever: the Blues Kitchen! Everything about the place, from its fabulous derelict-chic décor, to the impeccable, friendly service and the GODLIKE FOOD was on point. I wrote a review over at the blog, if you fancy checking it out! If you’re in London, definitely swing by - the cadre and the menu are definitely worth it!

Check out the review here!

Aaaaaand we’ve finally caught up, ladies and gents! #radicalselflovejuly challenge Day 23: on my wall hangs this plaque that I purchased while on holiday with Le Lover in Lisbon. It was a wonderful few days away and I wanted something to commemorate our time together, but of course, it’s a great message to drink coffee in front of every morning! :) #Love is all we need, folks!

Mine is an unusual kind of #magic. Sure, some of the objects I carry, like my rose quartz ring (for #love and an open heart), my twisted silver ring (given to me by a creative and talented friend) and my heart sunglasses help me amplify it, but my magic resides in my ability to see the world with rose-tinted glasses and to be open to all its love and wonder. 💕❤️ #radicalselflovejuly (Day 22)

You come across as very materialistic and I feel your motivation to do well in school to get a high paying job is just because of material objects. Do you think you would have the same career and motivation if all you could buy with money was food?

I understand that I may come off as materialistic every now and again- sometimes I think twice about posting what I bought/want to buy. But the truth is that I’m not sorry at all- I love pretty things. I love bags and clothes and make-up. If that makes me materialistic, so what. At the end of the day I pay it all with my own money, it makes me happy and I’m not hurting anyone.

But you are so, so wrong if you think that I work 10 hour days so I can buy a new lipstick or dress. Or that I busted my ass off to get a Distinction average so I could get a new pair of shoes. 

When I passed all my subjects for my degree, I called my grandparents in Nepal and they all cried because I was the first child to graduate from university here. My parents left Nepal 18 years ago for this great ~dream~ and being able to turn around and say “Look- I’m doing it and achieving things” is honestly the most amazing feeling in the world. THAT is my motivation. To make them proud. To make all their sacrifies worthwhile. To set a good example for my siblings. 

So yes I have big hopes and dreams and ambitions and owning pretty things is a by product of that. But that isn’t the whole reason. That isn’t even close. There is so much to my story that just because I don’t talk about them on here doesn’t mean they don’t exist. I got the expectations of about three generations on my shoulders, love. 

So life lesson of the day: don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Or: don’t judge a random chick on the internet because she likes Christian Dior makeup. 

I LOVE YOU FOR THIS.

I've been meaning to tell you this for quite some time: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. For all that you do. Your posts about positivity and radical self-love have been an invaluable source of inspiration and good feelings. I'm so glad people like you exist.

Hello my love, I hope you don’t mind me publishing this, but I want to keep this forever and ever! 

Thank YOU for taking the time to write me such a wonderful message. You’ve made my day! I’m happy I can help in any shape or form. People like you make everything I do worthwhile. :) Have a wonderful day! ♥

ahh omg your tummy button is the cutest odoglkahalk

Haha thanks darling!

This is my #radicalselflove totem for #radicalselflovejuly. What’s that, I hear you ask? @galadarling is much better at explaining this than I am, so be sure to check her blog out - but, in short, it is a symbol of your decision to love yourself, one that you should carry on you at all times. 


I chose to keep mine on me permanently! I love this constant reminder to love myself as I am; this little symbol that urges me to have a little heart when I’m being hard on myself. I love the way this #tattoo looks, and what it represents. ❤️ #me

"Fat shaming, though cruel, is another form of bullying that often goes unchecked because people believe that it will spur others to lose weight, and, as the logic typically goes, become healthier. This is misguided first and foremost because there’s nothing inherently wrong with being fat (see No. 3). And even if there were, fat shaming doesn’t help people lose weight.

According to researchers, those who experience weight discrimination are more likely to become or remain obese. Even simply calling someone “fat” can have this effect: A recent long-term study out of UCLA found that young girls who were called fat by someone close to them at age 10 were more likely to be obese later in life.

Rebecca Puhl, deputy director of the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity at Yale University, echoed this sentiment in an interview with NBC News regarding a previous study that had reached a similar conclusion: “Stigma and discrimination are really stressors. … And we know that eating is a common reaction to stress and anxiety.”"
