Sola..?

Processed with VSCO with 1 preset

I started writing this post with a clear intention in mind, to justify why being single is a good thing for me at this point in time. After I finished writing, for some reason I couldn’t press post, and as it turns out (and as it sometimes does), I didn’t entirely and wholeheartedly believe what I had written.

This is how my post started.. Read more ›

Christmas Eve, 2017-

‘Some people are like that. They need to make the same mistake 10 times to learn a lesson. Other people only need to do it once. Everyone is different.’

Nothing makes me happier then when someone brings the love they have for their culture and connects it to a business.

When I went along to her Paddington store last Friday for a special Frida Kahlo night, it didn’t take long to see just how much heart Carla had injected into her business.
