About Life & Nourishing and food shopping

Our neighborhood had just gotten even better!
You probably know already that I love healthy fresh food and since leaving NYC I have always missed the fantastic & gigantic Wholefoods on East Houston Street, if you have ever been, you will know what I am talking about. Well all my wishes have been heard and we just got a beautiful BIG About Life wholefoods supermarket complete with buffet, cafe and all.
The light is beautiful and it smells sooo good, I could spend a whole day in there.
We discovered it completely by surprise the other night, while heading out to our usual grocery store.
I was so happy and couldn't stop smiling walking through the isles, stocking up on delicious healthy treats.Dave had to document on his phone, as we didn't bring our camera with us.
The next morning, we grabbed Dalston and ordered coffee and take away breakfast at the Cafe and had a Winter breakfast picnic in the Park. So much fun.
As a professional makeup artist in Sydney it's not always easy to eat healthy and fresh food, as there is usually catering provided on photo shoots and the options can be small at times, so I try and have breakfast and dinner at home whenever I can.
Now home cooking is so much more fun too, with being able to get everything just around the corner.
I have even been baking this week, possily for the first time since landing in Australia.
Lately it's been about food over here, while Winter really arrived and the nights are cold calling for nourishing yummy hot food, teas, soups and baked goodness.
Little Dalston is a happy chap as ususal and of course only gets the freshest organic food too :)
He still hasn't had a hair cut and his hair has just grown super long for now, we will see how much longer we can bare the long intense brushing sessions before we will give in and see a groomer.

Caravan Brunch & the Olympics

There is something about a Sunday in London, especially if its a sunny Sunday.
This one started with pouring rain, but we got lucky to catch one of the brand new London buses from hour doorstep to the breakfast place.
We absolutely loved the design and feel of them, though I know they are not every ones cup of tea.
After getting soaked on the way we couldn't wait for the food at the highly recommended and cozy coffee roastery and restaurant Caravan. Our flatmate Calvin and also Adrian and Alex were joining us, it's always so much fun to hang out with these guys.
We had to wait 45 min for a table, but the team at Caravan was kind enough to offer us a seat at the bar, so that we could start warming up with one of the best coffees we have ever had in London.
The food was well worth the wait! Good start of the day.
By the time we finished brunch the sun came out and we all went for a long walk over to Brick Lane, buying myself a new pair of recently lost sunglasses.
We spent the afternoon hanging out in Haggerston Park, where they are showing the Olympic events on a big screen. We weren't organized enough to actually get tickets a year in advance to see anything live but then, hey, we are not that much into sports anyway. But we had fun cheering with all the excited people and watching the opening ceremony the other night.
We finished the day with cheap and cheerful Pizza at the Stingray Globe Cafe.
I wish I had every Sunday off! Thanks everyone for joining in and making it such a fun day.

I just realized how much I love everything about blogging, taking photographs, editing them, I love the writing and text editing just as much as sharing everything with others & reading YOUR blogs!
