‘I really enjoyed this episode,’ the Henne fashion designer wrote in the caption.

‘It’s a good one to shift mindset. All about perspective and finding happiness.’

It was the first time Nadia had offered a glimpse into her mental state since apologising for her snorting scandal on September 3.

Her entire world fell apart when she was caught breaking Melbourne’s Covid lockdown to attend an illegal party with several friends.

Damning footage from the gathering, which her friend and business partner Ellie Pearson posted online by mistake, showed her snorting a line of white powder off a $1.50 Kmart plate.

Just 24 hours after the video leaked, Nadia issued a grovelling apology on Instagram. 

While she wasn’t charged with drug offences because police couldn’t prove what she was snorting, the video nonetheless caused irreparable damage to her brand and she was dropped by major sponsors.

Apology: Just 24 hours after the video leaked, Nadia issued a grovelling apology on Instagram. 'I have let you all down by my actions. I take full responsibility and I am committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure I make better choices in future,' she wrote in an Instagram post
