Eat/Share/Listen with Zeena Shah

The very talented Zeena is the creative behind zeenashah.comHer prints are simply gorgeous and I’m a great fan of her work. She’s also been running screen printing and craft workshops across London for a little while now, alongside crafting her own brand of hand printed textiles. I actually had the pleasure of attending one of her workshops back in January and absolutely loved it!

(eat) my fail-safe dish…? I love to bake and find it so therapeutic. Currently I am obsessed with Ottolenghi’s Clementine and Almond cake it is delicious and great with figs an alternative too!

(eat) favourite restaurant/cafe/bar and why…? This seems to change weekly but I love Hoi Polloi at the Ace hotel for Sunday Brunch. There is such a lovely atmosphere and they have the most wonderful string quartet playing Madonna’s ‘Papa don’t preach’ whilst you eat – it’s dreamy. Plus their eggs benedict is a winner!

(share) can’t get through the day without… A lunchtime Pilates class at Frame Shoreditch. It’s my deprive when I can squeeze it into my hectic schedule!

(share) recent inspiring find I’ve discovered online… Matt and Nat’s gorgeous and completely vegan handbag collection! Made from recycled materials these beautiful bags look just like leather but are completely sustainable and eco friendly. I have them on my wish list.

(listen) tune I turn up on the radio… I always listen to music while I work, I’m listening to Marika Hackman’s new album at the moment. She has a stunning voice, if you like Laura Marling you’ll love her too. Her voice is other worldly.

(listen) a quote that resonates with me… ‘she believed she could and so she did’ – I collect inspiring quotes on one of my Pinterest boards. There is nothing more inspiring than one of these when you’re working very hard and long hours to give you a boost!
