Coffee and chocolate

It’s a match made in heaven although I think Mr Rosanna would add red wine into the mix.  I made it to a class at Cinch PT in Macleod last week and it was good to see my ever-inspiring trainer Nikki who is currently completing some studies in metabolic nutrition. Through Brooke De Propertis at Elm Natural (who has previously featured on my blog), Nikki is stocking some Peak Chocolate at her studio – yes, a pre-workout dark chocolate for endurance, focus, muscle and strength containing 80% cacao and Himalayan salt.

While I’m not sure about the science to back up the claims, I bought a pack and had a taste last night and it’s pretty good – I just wouldn’t eat it before going to bed as this ‘performance chocolate’ contains guarana!

Another local friend who is a serious coffee aficionado has been raving about Gridlock Coffee in West Heidelberg who roast Grinders coffee on-site and also have a cafe.  He and his partner went there for a coffee three days in a row so that’s saying something.

I hope you had a good weekend enjoying the sunshine.  While some of us are gearing up for race season, I also wanted to mention a few of the more glamorous resort wear brands I’ve come across if any of you have plans for a beach holiday over Christmas.  While I’ve previously bought from Byron Bay-based Spell & the Gypsy, another boho label is Faithfull the brand.  If your taste is more simple then another label based in Byron Bay, St Agni, has caught my eye – they do absolutely beautiful modern linen and handmade leather goods.  Their slides and loafers, in particular, are gorgeous.

While I love LA label Marysia Swim, started by a ballet dancer turned surfer, locally Peony Swimwear have some lovely styles although Jets, Seafolly and Sunseeker all do consistently good swimwear as well as Zimmerman and Tigerlily if you want something more fashion-forward.

Finally, I love some of the wide-brimmed hats like the Helen Kaminski‘s Alessa and Fallen Broken Street‘s Rolling Stone. Stay cool!
