Pana with Stomping Ground and Melissa Findley.

It's no secret that I love cake. Love may even be an understatement! In a dream world, I would eat cake for breakfast every single day. Pana Chocolate was one of the first places that came to mind when Stomping Ground asked me to host them for the day. We went, we ate, we soaked in the energy and left with full bellies and happy hearts! 

 I avoid dairy due to a diet I follow for my rosacea, I also gave up eating excessive amounts of sugar late last year so Pana has been a god send for me. Raw, organic and vegan!
The shop has a great energy too, the quotes and affirmations are great to explore and open your mind to new ideas. Eating healthy and being positive is a way of life, and that's exactly what they give you all the tools you need for that here.

Highly recommend this place for anyone who loves a treat, without feeling guilty.

Naval Marigold, a collection by Megan Desmond for Hairroom Salons.

Naval Marigold is a harmonious story inspired by the strength of naval hues and the warmth of garden shades. A trend prediction for spring/summer which is all about contradiction; a cool warmth and an androgynous feminity.   

Strawberry blonde with antique rose highlights and a whimsical blonde using washed peach and hints of Nordic violet and pearl. 

Hair, styling and photography: Megan Desmond. 

Models: Adrienne Nicholls and Jasmin Johnston. 
Makeup Artist: Sara Phanekham.

With special thanks to Melissa Findley.

Monk with Stomping Ground & Melissa Findley.

A few weeks back, I spent the day with Stomping Ground. Showing Aleesha some of my usual Melbourne haunts and my ideal Melbourne day. Followed closely by Melissa who captured the day.

First stop was Monk Bodhi Dharma. I come here a lot, if you follow me on Instagram you would already know this! Not only do they have a huge vegan menu, the food is delicious and the coffee is amazing, you can even have an almond milk latte. Oh and the chai lattes are INCREDIBLE, super spicy, just how I like them.

More often than not I get the pancakes, but this particular morning I had the quinoa porridge. It was mind blowing!

One thing I will say is don't be turned off if you can't get seated right away. You can sit outside and have coffee whilst waiting! It is quite a small cafe, but honestly so worth the wait.

Rosa casa.

Post coffee date at Common Galaxia with Nicole on a chilly Sunday. I have been wanting to check it out for a while, I had the Reuben sandwich which was incredible and they have great coffee too.

I bought this outfit for a dinner date and have found myself wearing it numerous times since! I was so excited to find a knit that was chic, and the mesh sleeved top will see me through winter and spring. 

Wearing Witchery knit and top, Acne jeans and boots, Samantha Wills ring, Kookai clutch and Miu Miu shades.

Winter sun.

When I bought this top in Sydney last month, I thought it would hang in my wardrobe 'til at least September. 
I've worn it twice now and both times without a jacket! It's cold don't get me wrong, but when we are blessed with that beautiful warming sunshine the chill almost disappears. 

Wearing Acne jeans, Alias Mae boots, Provoctor top, Samantha Wills bohemian bardot ring in pawpaw and Krystle Knight clear quartz rings.
