Botanica Real Food

February 19th, 2014

Hands up anyone still trying to lose that Christmas weight?  I see a few of you, and absolutely me, raising your hands.  (I keep asking myself, how did I get here???)  Now, as a way to try and lose that Christmas weight, hands up who is trying to eat more vegetables this year?  As part of their new year’s resolutions?  I see a few more of you, and totally me, too!  I don’t know about you but I’m having a terribly hard time making that 3 serves a day.  And I’m  VEGETARIAN!!!!  Crazy?  You bet!  But don’t let that vegetarian tag fool you, us vegetarians, we love bread, pasta and cheese, separately or altogether, just as much as you carnivores!  So I’ve been trudging through a bowl of steamed veggies a night trying to hit that mark but man-oh-man it gets boring.  I read the other day that raw vegetables are even better for you with more insoluble fibre and intact nutrients so maybe my steamed boring vegetables aren’t so good for me after all.  Which brings me to salad!  Glorious, colourful, made-by-someone-else, salad!  I’m sure you have heard about this most amazing little store in Red Hill, Botanica Real Food, that specialises in gluten free, vegetarian, sometimes vegan,oh-so-healthy-but ridiculously-tasty salads, breads and cakes (Yes – CAKE – you can’t just live on salad alone, am I right people?).  If you haven’t been to Botanica Real Food you need to get there FAST.  We were lucky enough to be hooked up by our favourite publicist The Press Garage to take some beautiful photographs of these beautiful salads (and CAKE, cake people).  Their broccoli salad is one of the most amazing things I have ever tasted.  I didn’t know it was possible to wake up with cravings for raw broccoli but it’s true.  Botanica Real Food is all takeaway, in the cutest little boxes, and perfect for a healthy lunch or quick pick up for dinner.  Their menu is ever changing and seasonal so you won’t be starved for choice – it makes getting your three serves an absolutely mind-blowing, foodie-style, pleasure.  So that is one of the new year’s resolutions taken care of, now for those pesky three kilos, maybe I just need to walk to Botanica every day, that outta do it!

Steve + Lauren – Engagement Portrait

February 11th, 2014

It has been a while since I put up an engagement portrait for you guys.  I’m sorry they have been far and few between.  We really recommend to couples to take that step and book one in because as much as you only get married once, you only get engaged once too!  It is a time to spend really basking in your love for each other, and to allow everyone to bug you about when you are getting married (it’s the truth isn’t it????  If I had a dollar for every time someone said that to me when I was engaged, I’d be rich!)  We were lucky enough to catch Steve and Lauren before they headed off to their new home up north and I’m so glad we did.  If there are any couples out there who are keen to hit us up for an engagement portrait just let me know.
