Today was Cancer Council’s Daffodil Day! Be sure to show you care, and help raise funds to support cancer research by purchasing a Daffodil Day pen or flower! :)
I had a delightful day off today and so decided to check out Wynnum’s newest “superfood” bar- Bay Blends! Opening less than 6 months ago, Bay Blends is a very welcome addition to the Bayside area. It is well known that many shops in Wynnum have been closing down…they just can’t compete with online shopping and don’t appeal to the younger families and ‘health-conscious’ crowd moving into surrounding suburbs of Manly & Gumdale. It is so exciting to see places like Bay Blends, Cedar & Pine, and Frenchie’s Cafe opening up- people are finally heading back to Wynnum again! :-D
Bay Blends seems very busy- there were loads of people coming in and out while we were there. They have a laid back/ bohemian feel about their décor, and I just love the bright orange chairs out the front! C and I both got an ‘Acai Bowl’… The quintiessential treat of the moment. The first photo is the Espresso Acai Bowl, and the second is the Raw Cacao Acai Bowl. Both were delicious and very filling. A little pricy at $10.50, but that’s kind of the “going rate” for superfoods nowadays… Totally worth it, haha. Bay Blends is open early everyday, and aside from Acai Bowls, they also offer smoothies, juices, coffee, and raw treats. Be sure to head into the ever-so-slowly revamping Wynnum area and check them out!
Wow, August already?! This month’s motivation is about getting my booty into gear, and getting stuff DONE! I’ve just started my Graduate Certificate in HR Management online, and so am doing full-time university while also working full-time between three jobs, and trying to incorporate yoga AND getting ready to move to Melbourne in November. My family says I just enjoy being stressed… I think they’re right. I thrive on pressure, and love the feeling of accomplishing something I set out to do.
This morning I caught up with my beautiful friend Brooke, and we headed to The Lazy Monk Cafe in Seven Hills (just across the street from where I get my hair done at Unsurpassable) for their delicious (and cheap!!) breakfasts.
