one month and two weeks

LondonFieldsShoppe-1monthWe’ve been living the shop life for almost one month and two weeks! It has been great meeting all of the new faces from around the neighbourhood including those that have seeked us out after seeing us on instagram, and of course, to all the family and friends that have stopped by. I was just telling Robert how great it is to be back in this area. When I was young, my grandma used to take tai chi classes at Ray Cam. My mom and two aunts would then come down to meet us before heading into Chinatown for our weekly shopping or to Pink Pearl for dim sum, so it’s been great walking up and down the streets rediscovering familiar gems. I’m pretty much on a mission to try all of the cold HK milk teas Chinatown has to offer. So far, hi-5 to The Boss Bakery. Bonus points for crushed ice and for thinking our baby is the cutest – ha!

We’ve been adding new things to the shop on an on-going basis and we’ve been busy moving things around. I’m expecting a new shipment of dickybird from the UK, so a lot of cuteness will be hitting the shelves soon! Our workshop series has also launched with a brush lettering workshop by Big Top Sign Arts on Saturday, April 18th (workshop on April 11th is sold out) with new workshops coming in May and June.

In other news, I made this super easy pork belly with crackling and to balance all the meat, this delicious swiss chard lasagna with ricotta and mushrooms. Oh, and I’m done with shoes that hurt my feet. Yeah, that was random. Any advice on cute flats that fit well?
