today

Jay & I are down in the lovely state of Victoria in the official ‘spa country’ for a four day sojourn in relaxation…

Yesterday we had lunch at a little micro-brewery called Holgate in the town of Woodend.

We then checked into our amazing hotel at Hepburn by 8 Hotels before soaking for two hours in the mineral springs of Hepburn Bathhouse. The spa couches are seriously life changing.

Today we slept in (thanks to the full blackout blinds!) and then went for an epic bush walk.

Then we went for brunch and drank Daylesford’s best coffee at Bocconcini Cafe & Providore

And then we retired back to our stylish temporary abode to eat (non-paleo) treats in the spa with the fanciest of champagne…

Bit of Bolli...don't mind if I do!

I’m feeling very relaxed & spoilt!

Hope you are all having a fabulous week but before I sign off a special shout out to my friend Neen who had a birthday today!

Mwah ♥

One thought on “today

  1. Thanks for the special birthday shout out 🙂

    it looks like you kids had a great time. I love Daylesford and Woodend – Donna has taken me to both. I think Woodend has been voted as the town with the second best vanilla slice in Victoria. I’ve tried it twice now and I can definitely vouch for it!

    The place you stayed looks schnazzy! If I ever go back to Daylesford, I’m staying at Hepburn by 8 Hotels for sure! And we too will drink Bolli in the bath – as all holidaymakers in their right mind should!
