In Full Bloom with the Australian Women's Weekly

If you are flicking through this month's Australian Women's Weekly you'll find a familiar face peering back at you. Our very own Natalie Bloom sat down with AWW to talk babies (how cute does Ben look in his first professional shoot?!), family, business and how she juggles it all. If you haven't read the full article, click on the images above to enlarge. We just can't get over how adorable the happy family snap is!

We just love Melbourne artist and crafter Dawn Tan! Nat was delighted to recently attend an art workshop held by Dawn at South Melbourne Market's SO:ME Space. We think Nat's watercolour looks good enough to eat! Dawn posted about the class on her fab blog Handmade Love. We had a little giggle reading the bit where she wrote 'this is why I love painting food... you get to eat it afterwards!'. Oh how we agree Dawn, especially when you're painting yummy fresh fruit and veggies!

Sugar Rush a la Griottes

We are head over heels in love with Griottes (Palette Culinaire), a super-sweet French food blog packed with beautiful photography, gorgeous colour, pretty things and delicious recipes. These images of Pantone-inspired treats are just a taste of the whimsical world of Griottes.

Natalie Bloom: RMIT's 2012 Alumnus of the Year

We are super chuffed to share the news that Natalie Bloom has been awarded RMIT's 2012 Almunus of the Year, which annually honours one outstanding graduate. Nat joins an impressive list of recipients including Archibald prize-winning artist, Sam Leach.

RMIT held a breakfast in late March to celebrate Nat's accolade and she was invited to present a speech detailing her journey from uni to businesswoman. Despite the expected pre-speech butterflies, it turned out to be a beautiful event that left Nat feeling very honoured and humbled. Nat's family were proud as punch and snapped some photos at the event.
