Part II - MELBOURNE
Last Friday, we held the second instalment of our very first activation event in collaboration with one of our favourite health foodie friends, Fit Mixes (the incredible DIY protein ball mixes brought to you by the legendary Fit Foodie). After the most amazing inaugural event in Sydney the Friday previously, we were so excited to do it all again with our Melbourne friends.
As mentioned in our last post, the idea for Friday Flow came about when Matcha Maiden and Fit Mixes were discussing how wonderful it has been to meet so many inspiring like-minded people through our work (including each other) and how awesome it would be to devote an entire event to bringing a group together for some eating and greeting. The Sydney event blew us away and we were equally as overjoyed with Part II in Melbourne.
Same as last time, Friday Flow Melbourne was a beautiful morning filled with rooftop poolside yoga, delicious healthy snacks and a whole heap of new health foodie friends. We were lucky enough to find another rooftop pool to host us and spent the morning saluting the sun (literally - it was a scorcher) on the rooftop of the Adelphi Hotel at Mon Bijou Penthouse.
The flow class was led by one of Melbourne's most loved yoga teachers, Masha, of Happy Melon Studios who has the most beautiful energy and set all of us up for a gorgeous day filled with zen and happiness. Our gorgeous photographer, Valerie, of Big Picture Stuff was diligently snapping away at all angles to capture the love-filled morning. We were also joined by some hilarious blow up birds that floated along the water keeping us smiling the whole way through. A few of us may or may not have tried to mount them and may or may not have subsequently fallen in the pool...
Again, while we organised the event to bring some lovely people together rather than to sell anything, we couldn't let anyone leave without some #mixnmatcha magic (and #fitmixes fabulousness). So we put on another breakfast spread to help everyone refuel while they recovered and networked up a storm. We had a layered parfait with yoghurt, matcha chia puds, and cookie dough Fit Mixes crumbled on top, some delicious matcha juices from our friends at Organic Avenue and a bit fat fruit platter full of goodness.
And then of course, there were goodie bags which were again absolutely EPIC thanks to so many wonderful friends! Thank you so much to all of the wonderful brands who contributed to these works of art! We were yet again blown away at how the event turned out and so excited to see what wonderful things happen when you get like-minded driven and inspiring people in a room together. We've had some requests for other locations, so will hopefully be doing this all again in new places next year. Stay tuned!
