We're shooting fashion today for Black 12 with Vanessa @ Nova (above). Craig Owen is the lensman, Rachael Churchward is styling and Stefan Knight is in charge of hair and make-up. It's a good time to mention our latest addiction Habitual Fix, which is quickly becoming our catering of choice for Black shoots and for breakfast and lunch in general. In 2006 founder James Tucker enlisted the culinary help of Tim Benest and they set about creating something they felt was missing from Auckland; real fresh food, and fast. The pair spent two years prior to opening finding the best fresh food growers and producers in the region and opened the first Habitual Fix in Beaumont Street, St Mary's Bay in 2008. The concept has already proved so successful they have opened another outlet on Customs Street, near the Queen Street corner.
Everything - bread, pita, sushi, juices, salads, pitas, wraps, 97% fat-free smoothies, sandwiches, gluten-free options and more - is all made on site, on a daily basis, and it shows. The servings are large - if you wish - and cost-effective. In no time at all - we're addicts.
