New Farm Markets & Faithfull the Brand

This Saturday, my partner and I decided to go for a scenic drive to the local Powerhouse Markets in New Farm, Queensland. These incredible markets are on every Saturday morning (from 6 am to 12 pm) and have become a regular haunt for Rhett and I to stock up on our fresh foods and have an easy breakfast.

On this particular morning, breakfast for me was a B.R.A.T from the Bagel Boys – bacon, rocket, avocado and tomato with aioli in an incredibly delicious garlic bagel. As you can see (down below) – I enjoyed it a lot. Rhett got the Smoked Chicken on a poppy seed bagel which looked just as good.

Afterwards, with our bellies full and iced lactose free lattes in our hands, we went for a walk along the New Farm esplanade. It was such a beautiful day, we couldn’t resist taking some happy snaps along the way.

Today I wore my new Faithfull the Brand dress (which I absolutely love!), Windsor Smith tan sandals and a brown leather satchel I purchased on my last trip to Cambodia.

It was such an amazing morning here in Brisbane and it’s precisely on days like these that I feel so, so grateful to be living in such a stunning country.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and are having a productive, optimistic Monday morning. Here is to a 4 day work week – thanks to the upcoming Easter long weekend. My in-laws are scheduled to arrive tomorrow, which I am so very excited about. I just hope that in the midst of all the entertaining, I’ll still have time for Olive and Clo.

Until we speak again next time – stay safe.
Love Linda, xo

    Love the dress and your bagel makes me so sad that I can’t eat gluten!! Do you mind me asking if your blog website layout is custom? I’m having trouble doing a side panel that has a blurb about me, etc etc.

      Hey Susane ☺️☺️
      I wish my layout was custom! No, it’s just a stock standard freebie. Or ‘light-version’ that I found available through

      I believe only certain layouts or free themes have the side panel capability. It might be worth trying another theme for interest sake?

      Also thank you for your lovely words. πŸ˜πŸ’– And ohhh I feel your pain. I am desperately lactose intolerant! 😭😭😭

        Thanks!! Ugh I’m cutting out gluten, dairy, and processed sugar (or trying to) and it’s the worst thing ever!! But makes my insides feel good. So frustrating!! Lol
