Sunday Stickies is a column where we reflect on the past week and pen those thoughts down on sticky pads. Expect notes to ourselves and others, advice, reminders for the week ahead, quotes, and anything random actually.
This week has been a whirlwind of firsts and heartwarming emotions for us. We had our first private event engagement and it was just pure fun. We bumped into old friends and a repeat customer (hello!), and had really awesome free music and food, all while manning our booth in a very cool location.
We are also pretty pumped to announce that for the month of December, a selected range of honey&gazelle Design Studio’s products will be stocked at VainGloriousYou as part of their Winter Wonderland In A Boutique event. We did up our little space on Thursday and want to hear your thoughts on it! Please do go down to take a look at it. The boutique is at 42 Haji Lane and they are open everyday.
When we first embarked on this adventure together, we did not expect to make many new friends nor experience such heartfelt emotions with people we barely know. Fast forward to six months and in the present, we have formed supportive friendships with fellow lovely + super fun vendors and met so many customers who are just the sweetest.
Just a few days ago, a customer came by and gave us handmade keychains for Christmas! To you: We are so sorry that we don’t know your name and barely had the time to get to know you! Please do come by our booth again so that we can really thank you in person. We are so touched by the pretty keychains and your sincere thoughts!
All the love and kindness in the air… it is really beginning to feel like Christmas! ❤
Min: This week is about new adventures and taking bold steps. I can be quite a pessimist so a lot of considerations will be thought through before I actually give a thumbs up to anything. New adventures are fun but they can be really scary. However, I am learning to trust and let go. You know, let go and let God! 🙂
Even though it is just a year to go to my wedding, I boldly snipped off half my hair and now I’m back to my mushroom bob! Jia loves my short hair and so does my mum. And if you guys were to see us at our pop-up booths, please say hi! It’s still me! 😀
Jia: I am so behind my work, yet I am starting to really anticipate our break at the end of December. With the multitude and onslaught of projects and events, I am starting to feel it. Exhaustion. A few years ago, I fell super ill to exhaustion while I was on a vacation to Taiwan with my friends. Prior to that, I had a ton of things going on in my life and the break came just in time. It was a bummer that I had to stay in bed while my friends went around the city. This is a reminder that I need to get sufficient daily sleep, if not I will be spending Christmas in bed, and that is one very sad thought ):
In happier news, I cut my hair too! Let’s just get this straight (haha), my haircut came a day before Min’s. I am loving how breezy it is but hating the hassle of daily blow-dries. But this is also the first time ever that my clique of childhood friends and I have similar lengths, so I can’t wait for everyone to be reunited for the holidays. Just 19 days and counting!
