Well, we are officially on school holidays here in Melbourne and as I right this post from now and for 2 weeks, no more time for me, it’s all about the kids.  However, this week I was lucky to go out for coffee everyday ( I know a bit over the top some might say) but I totally made the most of my kid free time before the 3 of them are home.  So hubby took me out for lunch and I wanted to share a few pics so here is, out and about – Melbourne edition.


The best handmade, raw, organic, sugar free, dairy free, gluten free chocolate around.  Pana Chocolate is a must have visit if you are in Richmond, Melbourne.


I loved this clip board wall of inspirational, positive quotes.  Such a great idea and one you could do at home.

You can visit Pana Chocolate here.


So much to choose from but I chose these raw desserts and a Pana Chocolate orange block.


We had lunch at Patch in Richmond also.  Patch is all about clean eating in a trendy environment in the old Studio Nine building on Bendigo Street.


The old building is gorgeous and the facade has been left untouched.  The food at Patch Cafe was light, fresh and very delicious, they also make a great coffee too.  Patch Cafe is a paleo inspired lifestyle cafe where you can eat healthy and feel satisfied.  You can visit Patch Cafe here for more information.


What a lovely surprise to be gifted a six pack of The Cupcake Queens cupcakes.  Lucky me and lucky kids.


We all had a hard time choosing which flavour, but I chose strawberry and let me just say it was sooooo delicious.  You can order your cupcakes from The Cupcakes Queens here.


The latest Home Beautiful Magazine arrived and boy I could not wait to get some time to read it.  Home Beautiful also shared 2 of my pictures on their Facebook page, thanks guys.


I love these notebooks from that I bought from Rockferry Homewares and Design.  So cute don’t you think?  I bought one for a friend as I knew she would love it too.


My tidy kitchen pictured above.  This will be the last time it will look so clean for the next two weeks but I do love having the kids home.  What are your plans?

Have you visited any of these places in Melbourne?
