Do Pro Bloggers work on the weekends?  I’m not sure but I figure they probably use the weekends to gather inspiration.  To see people, hear things, smell things, taste things.  In the name of research and the Pro Blogger dream, I hit the streets.

And took photos of street art…

Found a gorgeous spot to have lunch with my funniest friend Kyllie…

Saw Bel Ami at Cygnet Cinema with Kylls.  Have you guys seen it?  Thoughts?  I think it got a bum rap because I really enjoyed it.   The best part?  We found raw, vegan awesomeness in the cinema’s coffee shop…


Drooled over the pic of the Vegan Quinoa Chocolate Crackles Kylls invented.  Seriously, how good do these look??  Kylls has promised us the recipe as soon as she perfects it.  Bring.  It.  On.

Found a great place to build a house with a large balcony to watch the sparkly city lights…

Finished a post and photo shoot of cashew milks for my monthly contribution to Dori Collective.  Stay tuned for more info about this exciting project in the coming months!

Aaaaaand did a fair amount of navel gazing / watching the rain and winter sunshine through the skylights in my lounge room…







The plan for Day 4?  A whole lotta cooking!  Tune in tomozzle for guaranteed yumminess (fingers crossed!) and until then, love, light and glitter, my cyber friends!

      Oh WOW, I have never thought about making them myself but I always buy one when I see them in Manna, Raw Kitchen and David Jones. I would love to hear your fave bliss ball recipe! 🙂

    We only get back to Oz once every 5 years or so. Can I say your post is making me homesick if I only lived there for 2 years? Yummy looking bliss balls, cashew milk and quinoa chocolate crackle my friend!

      You totally can. I get homesick for Dublin and I only lived there for 1 year lol.

      Rebecca- looks like you and pro-blogging would get along fantastically 😉

        And I agree about the homesickness. Completely understandable, Somer. Is it time for your next visit yet?
