A few weeks ago, the ProBlogger team headed out to their annual retreat, to hang, eat dinner, relax, and get planning for some things next year. I was so excited when I found out it was going to be in the Yarra Valley, which I’ve already managed to go to three times since I moved here less than a year ago. I can’t help it, it’s so damn pretty – and there’s wine.
We were staying at Balgownie Estate Vineyard and Spa, and I really wish I’d stayed longer. This place was fah-bu-lous.
Hot damn do I love a king bed in a hotel all to myself. I still end up sleeping in a tiny ball off to one side, though.
We had a gorgeous dinner in their restaurant where I ate approximately 9kg of risotto, and backed it up the next morning with a following 14kg of most of the breakfast buffet + pancakes and syrup.
I then detoxed the gluttony in the spa, in a robe, getting my feet rubbed.
So misty, so pretty.
So the thing is, I was washing my hair before our morning meeting when I smelled the most glorious smell. I looked in my hand and realised the conditioner I was using was basically the best thing that had ever assaulted my nostrils. Appelle’s Apothecary & Lab Planifolia Conditioner with Australian Sandalwood and Kakadu Plum was now my new best friend. So I bought you some.
Made with Australian organic essential oils and natural ingredients, their products are never tested on animals. AWESOME.
One reader will win a gift pack made up of the shampoo, conditioner, and bath goodies, plus some Balgownie fudge and a couple of surprise treats you can’t know yet. Please just leave a comment below telling me what’s the weirdest thing you’ve put in your hair? Are you one of those egg yolk people?
I’ll pick a winner next Friday, and as always – thanks for reading here at VM. I love youse all.
