The Art of Lunch

With Juliette Hogan.

Being invited into Juliette's studio was a big treat in itself; a beautiful light-filled space surrounded with inspirational imagery, pieces from her stunning new collection, perfect Scandi-style furniture and of course those flowers (which Juliette artfully arranged herself)

We felt even luckier to also be treated to lunch which was served up on these amazing bread boards, handmade by Juliette's father. Apart from being an incredibly talented designer, Juliette is also a big foodie (and a very good baker) so lunch was a perfectly curated Antipasti selection followed by a few sweet treats.

Looking forward to the show tonight!

Good One

Coffee and conversation with Georgia Alice.

Our first morning in Auckland started with breakfast at Good One in Ponsonby. Such an amazing space with those bright yellow stools, high wooden ceilings and the little wooden trays for your food and tea.

Georgia is one incredibly talented girl (remember that outfit from the Battenberg collection!?) and it was so nice to meet her in person. I'm also so happy to have found this little gem of a cafe (one of Georgia's favourites) that makes such amazing coffee, especially as we'll be staying around Ponsonby later this week.

We ordered the muesli, savoury brioche, coffee and gingerbread tea. Highly recommend!
