I just cant get enough of photographing metal at the old Pemberton Railway..
And it seems some other materials are now catching my eye..

Ok so im getting there!! 3 left in the top 5.  drum roll please…


This little unassuming place has completely won the hearts of this Dunsborough tribe. Another magical combination that most will agree is hard to find.

Its one thing to get the wine right and another to come up with some stunning food… But you know you are onto something when you find a place that has it all going on and doing it soooooooo much better than anyone else!! These guys have got an act… And we just cant get enough.

Every time we wander in, we just feel so comfy and warm and happy.. and very rosy when we walk out!!!

pssst…. the reserve cab sav is to die for!! It just lays in your mouth like a warm wind and ruffles you up like your’e  on a first date.. and the food.. well….

enjoy these pics…

Wow…. Where have i been??? Its been cold and wet and altogether uninspiring to be truthful.. But a new love has entered my life and it sees a new beginning!!

My new venture for 2011 (serious venture!!) is joining the amazing Thermomix team in Dunsborough. I am so thrilled that i think i have found the exact type of work i have been looking for.  2 days of training coming up and i’m away.

Of course ive been putting my new Thermo through its paces at home for over a month now and let me tell you there is only one reason im joining that company… cos its bloody AMAZING!!! I now have full control over what goes into all my food.. No more pre-prepared preservative filled rubbish for me!!!

So im sharing a few snaps of my morning at home with Harper (who is also lovin the new thermo)..

And amongst other things we also made our own butter this morning in around 2 mins…. JOY!!!!

Oatmeal & Currant Bickies…. x

Can you smell them yet??

Number 2…from my top 5 places to find great food & coffee is…..

Samudra, Dunsborough W.A

This haven for all things life and love has me completely captivated. The magical marriage of Yoga, Surfing and Raw/Live Superfood Cafe is something rarely seen and so well done. With the focus on living, loving, smiling, sharing and treating your body as a temple, Samudra is the only addiction i am happy to have.. 

Summer saw endless amounts of bronzed chatting friends & families, cross-legged on daybeds under the trees… drinking fresh squeezed juices, smoothies and eating lashings of leafy green salads… Our last 2 visits have been cosied  up inside by the fire in spacious nooks over  long hot coffees, grilled bananas with pancakes and mushroom burgers the size of your head!! 

breakfast anyone?

People are happily drifting from their yoga sessions and filling themselves on warm chia or casual conversations with close friends. Everywhere you look you are reminded to love one another, treat your body in kind and find some inner peace.. I immediately have the feeling that i am exactly where i would like to be. 

A special treat is to walk through the Organic Vegie Garden. Never before have i seen so many happy plants, all reaching for the sun.                  Everytime I leave this place I am truly inspired to lead a more conscious life.

A very special little person in my life loves this place too!!

Autumn also saw a new menu… an absolute must for lunch is the quinoa tabouleh.. the perfect winter salad jewelled with crimson pomegranate.

Melina del Mar

So next time you need to nourish your soul, this is my pick of them all..

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      exhibiting now @ Samudra                                                                                                                                                  

Enjoy x

Famous 5..

In my last post i mentioned my famous 5. This was a concept that was explained to me by my Dad many years ago. It was in reference to friends and the belief is that in life you only need or have 5 close friends.You can always count them on one hand and its just as simple as that. People will come and go but this famous 5 will always be a constant.

I started to realise that this top 5 idea can apply to most things.. So i thought i would write a few posts about some top 5’s in my life. Also with the thought of getting some valuable comments about some top 5’s in your life.
Im going to start off by posting about my top 5 favourite places to source the most divine food and coffee.. All very near & dear to me..

NUMBER 1..The Fruity Cow.. Cowaramup

The newly opened doors of this organic heaven have shed a new light on pristine local oraninc produce in the region. The minute you walk in the door you are met by vibrant colour and woven baskets a plenty with fresh fruit and vegetables, all grown by the passionate owners and picked that morning or sourced from local growers. Other treats you will find at the Fruity cow are local honey, milk, relishes, jams and chutneys. On my last visit i was seduced by shiny handmade macaroons of every colour to which i was powerless and i can assure you that these little suckers are hard to find.. cos i have searched … and i dont give in easy! I love walking away with armfuls of firm fresh produce and lots of little new surprises that i find each time i visit.. Its a must if you love food that loves you back..
Oh and you might see one very adorable chocolate puppy dog at the front door..
For Aunty Joo..

As we get older and we form our families and our own stories.. we find our closest friends who were always by our side start to drift away. Our friendships may remain intact but distance is placed between our hugs and time spent together. Its just a part of life that we must all go and start building our own lives away from each other. New friends come and go but your famous 5 will always be firm in your heart.. with all that said.. here are 2 very special women in my life that will be with me forever no matter where i go or how little i call.
