200+ Likes! We Like You A Lot Too

This week we reached 200 likers on Facebook! Thank you to everyone who has supported us through our social media accounts like Facebook but also Instagram and this blog of course! (A bit of an inception blog experience happening). 

This is how we feel whenever we see you in the shop and interacting online! It's been a long journey where we've seen what works and what doesn't as well as learning how to schedule posts.

This year has also seen our new website go live which is very cool because well, now we have a website! For those of you who have keen eyes you may have spotted the typo saying that gift vouchers were available in any demonimation... whoops that is clearly not what we want!

Check it out!

What Do You Know?

Woah. So this week has been pretty crazy hey? Then again what week isn't crazy but with the election of the new President of the United States, that's a pretty big shakeup. Perhaps I just wasn't as politically aware during all of the other elections but I have never read as many articles covering the election as I have in the past three months. So I guess it's official, whether you're celebrating or crying inside (or outside, that's okay too) Donald Trump is the new POTUS for the next four years. So you may be asking yourself - who is this man? Behind the news and videos and articles and interviews, what does he stand for? What policies will he implement and how>? (Although no one really knows this. Sorry personal bias getting in the way). Sadly we can't tell you exactly how but we may have some books that will shed some light on who he may be in private.

One of these is the TRUTH ABOUT TRUMP by Michael D'Antonio that tries to look more closely at how his beginnings shaped his current persona.

If you're looking for a more light hearted approach there's Oslo Davis' WORLD ACCORDING TO TRUMP filled with many Trumpisms. 

In all honesty I will miss the Obamas, OBAMA IS SO FUNNY and if you need to be convinced look up the videos of him welcoming kids into the White House for Halloween! 

We also awoke with the news that Leonard Cohen passed yesterday too. And the wars rage on -  I guess time is always moving.
