Cupcake Fun

Last night, we celebrated the upcoming launch of our new website with a cupcake party in Melbourne's CBD. Teaming up with Little Cupcakes, we celebrated our upcoming move as they launched a bunch of new vegan and gluten-free flavours, and they were dee-licious! Pictures of the event are coming on our new website tomorrow, but until then here are a few images of us having some cupcake fun in incredible matching outfits by Alice McCall and Talulah. Don't forget, tomorrow we move to!!

Website Preparations

After spending the morning listening to an inspiring talk by marketing guru (and all-round hilarious person) Mary Portas, my shiny new perspex bag and I set off on a serious day of errands and meetings in preparation for the HTL website launch coming up. I was in a bit of a lazy fashion mood and felt like my outfit was pretty low key for HTL standards, although I did get quite a few comments on my new muscle tee from Market HQ! Combine skulls and dip-dye and you just can't go wrong.

A Summer's Day

I am absolutely loving this extended summer we seem to be experiencing so I decided to take full advantage and had my ultimate summer's day. Started off with a delicious lunch in Hampton at a cute cafe called Sip. This was followed by an afternoon of tanning and swimming at Half Moon Bay - seriously forgot how beautiful that place is! I literally felt like I was back on the beach in Hawaii.... Well, almost.

Station St Trading Co.

A sunny Saturday morning called for a great breakfast spot with the potential for tanning nearby, so we ventured over to Port Melbourne to give this new(ish) place a try. We weren't surprised to hear that the guys who started Coin Laundry are behind this cafe, as it has that same quaint neighbourhood feel, delicious coffee, and yummy mummies galore. Afterwards ditched the jacket and the shoes and headed to the beach for a solid tanning sesh...summer may be over, but nobody seems to have informed Melbourne!

Current Obsession

I woke up for uni in a very bad mood at a far too early hour and decided the only thing that would pull me out of this funk was if I were to cover myself in smiling daisies for the day. So that's exactly what I did, and let me tell you it was quite effective! Love that we're clearly both feeling Lazy Oaf at the moment. I also bought Gig a pair of socks and matching note pad from their website the other day. That's right, they match hosiery with stationary - total genius!

Headed back to one of our all time favourite lunch spots for the first time in a while! The second I arrived I struggled to remember why I haven't been eating lunch there every single day...the decor is super cute, the food is unbelievable and the sunny terrace is a prime tanning spot. Can't wait till Milou is old enough to be allowed out of the house and I can take him there with me!
