Memories of Snaefellnes Peninsula near Bùðir. Due to the single lane roads, I have to coordinate a stop when I see a window of opportunity with no cars in either direction for a few kilometres, to be safe and responsible. Always hazards signals on too. Many road trippers don’t, quite dangerous, as the average speeds are 95km-110km/hr.
It’s turned into a fab “me” afternoon 🙂 A trio of mini French pastries and an americano, watching folks stroll by on Davie while the sun make it through thr again. Oh and I’m drying off the damp from the gardens earlier. La dolce vita!
Working on building the @ServiceDesignCA presence & with it came a happy moment of randomness.
Went to order tea and found out they carried a tea I had in Prague which brought a flood of visceral memories surrounding solo travel, life passions and future work endeavours. Of course I had to purchase a container of the Paris tea by Harney & Sons. Now the lovely memory of the Globe Cafe in Prague is forever linked to Cardero Bottega cafe and Service Design 🙂 #happygirl
It’s more work being petite 😉 Sometimes people ask why I chose apparel design. It’s about making better fitting and functioning products for me. I’m petite, so it started off as a petite clothing collection. Since I wasn’t drawn to the fashion and trendy side of he business, it was only natural I veered into performance apparel where I could help to engineer fit and functionality.
Pictured here, a typical process of me making something fit and perform better. Smallest size shoes that fit can sometimes be long in the sole at the heel. With flip flops this is a hazard for others stepping on my shoe and tripping me, it has happened. So, I often cut and trim tram down when I can. Sharp cuttings tools and grades of sandpaper on wood help to reshape.
