An Interior Designer’s Mini Converted Warehouse That Feels Like Home

At the end of a laneway in inner Melbourne is a small, freestanding warehouse with a loft bedroom and a tiny roof garden. ‘What’s NOT to love?!’ says interior designer Leigh Ellwood, who moved into the rental property in the heart of Fitzroy along with her cat Yama a few years ago.

After hearing more from Leigh about her small but mighty home, filled with a lifetime of special things – we’d have to agree!

Five Garden Designs You Didn't Get To See At The Melbourne International Flower + Garden Show

Like almost every major event scheduled for the year, the 2020 Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show has been cancelled. It’s a devastating blow to the stallholders and designers involved – so much time, effort and resources are put into the show every year, with some concepts in development for more than 12 months prior.

Inevitably, our Instagram feeds were flooded with heartbroken retailers (including a particular post from Red Earth Bulb Farm and their entire flower crop) that wouldn’t be on display. In lieu of its cancellation, we reached out to some of the key exhibitors due to install their show gardens this week, to ask them what they had planned, what the show means to them, and who they were looking forward to seeing!

Start your day off with a better breakfast

Everyone knows the age-old adage that breakfast is the most important meal of the day; however, many Canadian adults fail to take it to heart.

Everyone knows the age-old adage that breakfast is the most important meal of the day; however, many Canadian adults fail to take it to heart—40 percent, in fact, report not eating breakfast daily.

Of these non-breakfast eaters, 50 percent revealed that the reason they skip this important meal is lack of time—not a good enough excuse when you consider how long it takes pop a slice of bread in the toaster.

Perhaps Canadians just aren’t well enough informed about the health benefits of eating breakfast, as well as the negative health effects associated with not eating breakfast. Let’s take a look at a few:

  • A 2010 study reported that those who skipped breakfast had larger waste circumferences, higher total cholesterol, higher LDL (bad) cholesterol, and higher fasting blood glucose levels.
  • A study from the International Journal of Obesity cited that teenagers who ate breakfast stayed fuller throughout the day, and those who ate a breakfast high in protein had reduced appetite, suggesting that eating breakfast may help to control calorie intake.
  • According to a 2008 study of 379 children between the ages of 11 and 13, those who ate breakfast regularly showed significantly better memory recall than those who did not eat breakfast.

It’s obvious that eating breakfast is key to a long and healthy life, so quit it with the excuses and eat up! Need ideas? The following breakfasts are not only quick and nutritious, they’re also incredibly yummy!

  • Quinoa and Avocado Scram Slam
