Today I took my fiancé to one of my favourite healthy cafes, Mondays Wholefoods in Kingsland. Featuring a covered courtyard overflowing with natural greenery, the cafe is warm and welcoming; the perfect spot for a relaxed lunch. We enjoyed their Mondays Benedict with organic pullet eggs, whole potato rosti, wilted greens, vegan hollandaise & parsley pistou, adding bacon & mushrooms, and their Ambrosia Waffles – buckwheat waffles with coconut ambrosia, berries, vegan meringue & toasted coconut. These were complemented by coconut milk hot chocolate & emerald (matcha) latte. Our lunch was wonderful in every way – friendly service, calm atmosphere, and of course, delicious food. Our highlight was the soft, creamy sweetness and subtle berry flavour of the ambrosia, and the earthy, wholesome flavour of the buckwheat waffles.  

A lover of natural, rustic chic spaces, I found inspiration in their natural autumn colours, bohemian style cushions, teapots & essential oils on their shelves, some luminous citrine (my favourite healing crystal), and even some floral styling wedding inspiration. If you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy a moment of calm, good food and nature, Mondays is the perfect place for a cosy meal.

Love,

Our Cosy Wellington Getaway

Food, Lifestyle, Personal

Hi friends, I hope you’re having a wonderful and relaxing Easter weekend!

Last weekend, my fiancé and I went on a little weekend getaway to my favourite city and second home: our capital, Wellington, New Zealand. We stayed two and a half days, which while short was plenty of time for us to see an incredible exhibition, eat delicious food, rest and recharge, and simply enjoy each other’s company. The purpose of our trip was to see the Terracotta Warriors at Te Papa Museum and celebrate my fiancé’s birthday. Happy Birthday, my love!

Delicious brunch and sunshine is definitely my favourite way to spend a Sunday morning. Last Sunday, my partner, future sister-in-law and I had a psychic moment when we all decided on the same cafe at the same time: Honey Cafe in Takapuna! The gorgeous beachside suburb is one of my favourite places in the world, so today I’d love to share with you my thoughts on just one of their amazing eateries.
