Sweet Dreams



I have a very artistic friend called Georgina I met her years ago when I modelled and appeared in a photoshoot for her. She designs beautiful bags under her brand called Evoke and always has loads of creative ideas when it comes to business of all different types.

Here are her bags



She went off the radar a bit last year and I had so much going on in my life I didn’t really keep in contact, so it was a delightful surprise when she told me that she opened a Sweet Shop.

It’s called Sweet Tooth and is in Brixton Village. She opened it in December but my busy ass only got chance to visit it a couple of weeks ago. My mum makes Jams and she is also stocking those.


You can see mums Jams on the shelves


You know when you walk into a place and it has a really nice vibe? Well this was one of them, I walked in and she had a table in the middle and children making badges as part of an activity day she was having. Then she was there looking great and just seeing her in there, doing her own thing made me feel quite proud and inspired.


It left me wondering about my own life and how I would feel if I was doing my own thing, I reflected on this post now I know that although I’m happy I am not living my dreams or feeling fulfilled. I guess its time to take stock of my life. How are you doing in yours? Are you doing everything you always wanted to do?

Hey Angel...How are you doing Love?
Sorry I've kind of floated off of the radar a bit...I'm starting to get around to reading and commenting on blogs again. ( I spend so much time on Facebook now it's ridiculous (smile) ) Thanks for not forgetting me and for keeping up with my blog.

This is awesome, Angel. Good to see independent businesses opening. I'm making steps towards a few goals, one day at a time at this point. Big hugs!

Your friend seems very talented and her shop looks lovely and very inspiring.
I am not quite where I want to be in my business yet, but I am working hard at it every day and hopefully getting closer to that goal.

Thanks for coming to my blog.
