Another smashing week, BLACK FRIDAY Week it Was! Oh my goodness! We got many sales during this week and a lot of returning customers which is always so lovely to see. Thank you all for your support as always, really means so much!
In between orders, I wanted to make sure of taking breaks! Getting some sun, sand between my toes and seeing new cafés along the way. Hope you enjoy this TWTW
Clovelly Beach has always been one of my favourite beaches to visit with kids since the waves don't get so big. Easy to get to via foot and sand for days. Bonus points there is a park literally opposite the beach. There is not much shade here for kids so do plan on making it a quick visit or pack a sun shade for longer days.
Over on Botany Road, Botany is Son of a Baker. We stopped in here for a quick coffee, cronut and delicious Feta and Spinach pastry. I discovered these pastries at my local café. After realising my locals didn't make these pastries in house, I then tracked these guys to find out more! I went during the week and it was not as busy, but I have been passed the café on the weekends and it's been packed! They also have a store in Miranda Westfield.
Just next door to the Cafe is a great community wall for people to donate goods to people in need. Check out Pantry 4 the People on instagram to find out how you can donate. I really liked the idea how there was fresh herbs for the public and cute poems and drawings crafted from the kiddos in the community. It really made me proud that there are beautiful souls out there.
You can donate:
- Pantry items (pasta, pasta sauce, canned food, noodles, rice, instant meals, snacks, biscuits, pet food, baby food, breakfast cereal
- Toiletries (Sanitary pads, deodorant, soap, hand wash, nappies, tooth paste, toot brushes, shampoo/conditioner, razors, shaving cream.
We finished off the week discovering the beautiful flower beds and gardens at EG Waterhouse National Camelia Gardens, Caringbah. We were the very first to get there, which meant all the birds and ducks were super eager to see us. So...bring food for them. Look up in the trees and you will see bats! Sleeping, minding their own business. There are two fenced parks in these gardens. The first park is situated in front of the Tea House (you can even have high tea here) and the other park is like an Alice in Wonderland world where you can even sit and play a game of chess. Highly recommend!
