Hey there people,
How are you? Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I know I am.
I am so pleased with how my day turned out today! The sun was out, the skies were clear and albeit some strong winds, it wasn’t freezing cold outside. So I decided to take advantage of the weather and took a stroll to the Growers Market in Pyrmont.
For those of you who haven’t been to the Growers Market, I suggest you do so next month. It is something you shouldn’t miss if you are in Sydney. It happens on the first Saturday of every month and is located by Sydney Harbor at the picturesque Pyrmont Bay Park. Here, you can find a wide variety of stalls selling everything from, fresh fruits and vegetables to venison, pork, seafood and wine! A lot, if not all, of their products are fresh and organic which is definitely a huge plus in my opinion.
The 30 minute walk down to the market got me super hungry and so as soon as I reached, I decided to grab a nice cup of Hot Chocolate, to begin with. I bought it from the Columbian Connection stall, of which I hadn’t heard of until I got there. The best thing about this hot chocolate (aside from the fact that it was HOT CHOCOLATE) was that it was a 100% organic; much like their coffees! Most of the people in line were there for the coffees but I’m not exactly a coffee person so I opted for the hot chocolate instead. And boy was it a great decision.
After grabbing my chocolatey goodness, I next hit the lukbeautifood stand. I was intrigued by their Cold pressed juices and smoothies options that consisted of; Revitalise (with apple, beetroot, ginger and lemon), Super Skin Milk (with almonds, cardamom, cinnamon, dates, filtered water, nutmeg, sea salt and vanilla bean) and Antioxidant Boost (with blueberry, pomegranate, red grape and coconut water). I picked up a bottle of Revitalise, because of the amazing colour of the beets, as well as a Super Skin Milk, because I love almond milk (duh)!
I also picked up one of their Breakfast Bars. Now, I’ve tasted a lot of snack bars and granola bars from the stores, but this one is hands down the best thing I’ve ever had! Each bar is filled with omega 3 rich seeds, nuts, dates, lemon zest and coconut oil. Good for your health and definitely good for the taste buds! This combined with my Organic Hot Chocolate made for the best brekkie.
Here’s a picture of my yummy ‘kick-starter’ breakfast for this morning.
After roaming around for a while, my next halt was the Rowie’s Cakes stand. Again, I didn’t know of Rowie’s Cakes until today. But I’m glad I found them! They make some very yummy (and yes, as you guessed, HEALTHY) desserts and confectionaries. After deliberating between their cupcakes, rocky road bites and snack bars, I decided to buy a box of Rowie’s Rocky Road Bites. These delicious cocoa bites are allergy-free (wheat free, gluten free, dairy free, yeast free, egg free and nut free) so it is good for those who react negatively to any of the said substances. I myself am allergic to gluten and dairy (my skin is highly sensitive) and this was truly a delight to find because I have such a huge sweet tooth. And if you aren’t allergic to any of these, I suggest you still pick up one of these boxes. I mean, who can resist the combination of dark chocolate and marshmallows!?
I ended my trip by grabbing some fresh veggies for the week and headed for a flat viewing.
All in all I had such a great time at Growers Market and am looking forward to heading there next month! Make sure to note the date in your calendars because you do NOT want to miss it!
And now, for my OOTD and OOTN.
For my OOTD, I chose to wear my ASOS Cable Jumper in the colour Oatmeal. I really like how the jumper fits on me (I wear a size M) and the color compliments dark skin guys very well. I teamed this up with my blue stretch skinnies from Topman (you guys might’ve seen this in my last OOTN blogpost) and my Metro Shoes Zip-Up Converse. To beat the harsh winds I wrapped my Topman loop scarf around my neck. I finished the look with my glossy black Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses, which was a birthday present from my dad (thanks dad!). I also threw my maroon ASOS cardigan in my messenger bag (also from ASOS. Yes, I shop on ASOS a lot :P) just in case it got too chilly.
For my OOTN, I am going for a smart casual look. I am wearing my ASOS long sleeve T-shirt in the color Green Marl and layering it with my teal corduroy blazer from RDX. I purchased this blazer last year for my 23rd birthday party.
I paired this up with the same jeans I wore in the morning along with my black suede shoes from ZU Shoes. I finished the look with my stainless steel Pulsar watch (that I purchased from Melbourne) and by spraying on some Blue de Chanel which was a gift from sister from New York.
The look for the night is ready! Now, all I need to figure out is where I want to go for dinner and where my friends want to go clubbing #firstworldproblems
Hope you guys liked yet another post from yours truly. Have a great night and I’ll be back again next week with yet another post. Stay tuned!
