Laurent Boulangerie Patisserie, Melbourne

Wondering around in the city for date day, Mr D decided he needed coffee so we decided on Laurent since Mr D hasn’t been to the one in the city. After what feels like a gazillion years later, we finally found the building and it was GORGEOUS (shame I forgot to take a photo of it though). Mr D got an ice coffee since it was 31 degrees (summer has finally come) and as usual, he wasn’t impressed with it at all. He just shrugged and finished his drink.

The Kettle Black, South Melbourne


Had a badminton session with the girlies and of course a catch up isn’t complete until we stuffed our faces at brunch. We went for the option of ‘what’s the closest brunch place’ and thanks those tech-savvy girlies, we were at the kettle black.

We were told it was going to be a wait of 35 minutes but some groups didn’t show up when their names were called so we ended up only waiting for 10 minutes (SCORE!).

La Trattoria of Lavandula, Shepards Flat

We were in Daylesford for the weekend with the gang and before we headed on home, we stopped by the lavender farm. It was a beautiful place and entry is $4 for adults and $2 for children. You can walk around and there’s lavenders where you can take photos, spots for picnics and even an emu around the back. The reason why we came, lavender scones! We made our way down to the cafe and bagged a table for 10.
