As you're reading this, I've left the prairies (and canola fields) and jumped on a plane to Seattle for a much needed break! I will be back with travel posts next week so stay tuned!
Just a quick post to feature a new bakery along Corydon called Caked with Love Co. With the abundance of dessert places in the city, what really prompted me to check out this new spot is the fact that they're owned by young Filipinos. It's one thing to support local businesses; But of course, it's also another thing to see a Fil-Canadian like myself jump into the local bakery & cafe scene. For Caked with Love Co., it's all about their gourmet coffee & moist cupcakes. They bake 3 flavoured cupcakes per day and also feature a cake by the slice (Red Velvet & Ferrero Rocher Cakes have been their best sellers). With the ample space and late hours they have, Caked with Love Co. is a great place to grab something sweet after lunch or dinner!
It was a weird-weather weekend for the Wildwoodrose Vintage Market to have their second run last Saturday; But even with that, I made my way to the event to check out the local vendors selling their vintage wares & wears. Present were my usual favorites, Nettie + Min and Oh So Lovely Vintage rocking their adorable store displays. At the same time, there were non-vintage but equally excellent vendors like La Petite Tarte (yummy pastries), The Travelling Sign Painters (hip customized signage) and locally-based online boutique Velvet Kimono (finally met each other after months of IG stalking, haha!). I ended up getting a pair of white leatherette shorts which I cannot wait to wear for my upcoming trip to Seattle!
