When you walk into Combi, you can’t help but feel relaxed. With vibrant décor & a rustic beach vibe, it’s easy to just sit and watch the world go by.
The raw, organic café recently opened doors in beautiful Byron Bay. We caught up with co-owner Penny Loughlan…
Your style is…
Modern boho, beach vibe, I am loving white and cream since moving to Byron Bay. An everyday outfit would be floaty dresses & skirts by Spell, Zimmerman or Auguste, jewels by Nicole Fendel, some leather flats by St Agni. Oh and a large clutch & my swimwear underneath!
Byron Bay! I feel like I have found my perfect little spot in the world.
Irrational fear of?
Bad coffee 😉
Can’t live without?
My Samoyed Bow Wow & my partner Anthony of course, but also being near the ocean.
Sweeping the floors of my mother’s hairdressing salon, when I was 8 years old.
Fantasy dinner guests?
Hmmm I’d love to chat to Oprah Winfrey as her words and point of view are so empowering, Beyoncé as she is just so damn cool… maybe she could perform?! And then I’d invite my friends along to join in the fun. Oh and perhaps we could invite Alice Waters (top vegan chef) to cook for us!
Favourite book of all time?
Alice in Wonderland. Who wouldn’t want to live in Wonderland?
Yoga BUT I also love running to the lighthouse and interval training, I just recently hooked up with Ashley Freeman as my PT here in Byron, we have so much fun and she kicks my butt!!
Something most people don’t know about you?
I only got a toaster last year! Hahaha! We used the grill up until then. #lifechanging
