Mommy le Minx
Time for a Mom feature Little Raymis. It has been been awhile plus this w/e it’s all about yo mama! Lets check out what the dream team Tracey the Minx and Lolo got from The Drake General Store for their Mom Wow shopping date. Ten times cooler than sending flowers, these chicks love to do things (spazzes). So a shopping excursion and lunch in the city courtesy of my home away from home homies The Drake/General Store was the dopest idea. I can’t be there to do it myself this year and do the here is a construction paper card with a crappily drawn flower on it DAUGHTER OF THE YEAR custom-made. Hell I bet if I made those I could sell them for $100 each (self inflated egotism at its best). Remind me to assemble a team of interns to make homemade cards and plagiarize my name on them as my next career move project to fizzle out after 6 months.
Hi! On with the showmance lets go.
Nice stems jeezis. Nice glasses too! I love how they copy and one-up each other constantly, we always copy each other’s “thing” it’s cute, playful, and fun. Monkey see monkey do. Life is a mirror.
I love this store. Ever since it opened. The owners are dreamy too.
I have never eaten so many eggs in my life since living here.
As a writer I have a great affinity for books, journals, note paper, whimsical stationary, collecting meticulously effortlessly designed notebooks. This makes my heart swoon.
I love this photo. Lois is my godmother. Am I a mother collector? I think I am. GAhah. All your moms are belong to us! I think it’s because my mom is like a child and I am a habitual f–up I am a never-ending fix it project based upon my totally aggressively laid back lifestyle. In other news we watched Our Idiot Brother last night fwahaha.
These I love. I want to make a terrarium. I wish I was not so lazy that I would make one. I want to be the kind of person who makes terrariums. Like David Suzuki. I think I would faint if I met him. National Treasure. His daughter seems wicked too.
Why yes. I. am.
I can only imagine how Dom dealt with them on Thursday haha she said they were very charming. I said my mom is worse than me no filter, which is the charming part D said. AWWWW.
Nice. I knew my mom would have a field day photographing in there. Bonus Mother’s Day gift for the obsessive shutterbug.
In their natural habitat, divas.
Okay ok ocray.
Oh my god I want new clothes so bad.
I want that dress. Love this picture. Florida tanned.
Canadian summers are the best though.
I would love to table dress. I like arranging things, decorating, kitschy vintage-modern, post modern eclectic, nostalgic curiosities. I am a “things” kind of person. Things are based on emotions, the need to tap in to them also if you’re a loner you like play things to fill in for people.
As a girl, how does this box of beads make you feel? She either got it as a gift for a girl or for herself and now she’s going to make me a bracelet.
This makes me feel awesome. Plus “I need it”. I need it in a cabin I don’t own yet.
I guess my mom “needed” this too. She has a lot of jewelry. I “need” some of it. Lol.
Nice smirk Tracey wtf.
Yes you do!
Mom are you on a red carpet? Love it.
Totally I love eating soap. J/k
Can’t wait for my shopping spree!
The D. Gen is like opium. Prozac. All that and more.
It’s designed like a retro pharmacy too. How appropriate. In Papiamento they call it Botika. In Dutch, Apotheek. You learn these things in other countries when you have to drive all over town searching for them and they don’t speak English. Apotheek sounds like Apothic, which assuages my inner-goth. You learn so much here don’t you now.
I just love the digs here. Maybe I am homesick? No just being a traveling bohemian minimalist on a budget makes me yearn to shop more. You realize you have everything in life you already need already, you don’t need to buy more — just one more thing for your mom for Mother’s day though because giving her your new no-buying mentality as a gift this year is a little too last minute fellow Buddhist, you can do that next year ahaha.
Lets play who drank what.
Love post lunch booze walks, everything is surreal and magical and less boring than when sober. Are we walking on a ship right now? Feels like it lol.
I’m glad you had a wee stroll around Queen west.
It’s colder here I’m jeals of the Toronto temperature.
Oh my god yum.
THIS PICTURE IS PERFECT. Lois always matches to something.
Quirky is the best.
Oooooh that’s the one you “needed” most of all. Happy Mother’s Day you deserve it! I love you.
You too Lolo. xoxo
I got my blue toms from the Drake General Store when I was living at Adventure House when I was 27. They were like 70% off! I like Tray Cray, love a good deal.
Hehahahee. How many visions of the future I see when I look at the billions of photos of my mom there are out there nevermind Dolly Parton from the previous post. Dutch Bf saw what I was going to look like in the future in Aruba and was like alrighty then. He said He found me, I chose him, he take me. yes we speak engrish. Sorry.
There you go Toronto.
I love stuffed animal things most of all. Sometimes if you’re feeling childish enough your stuffed animals start talking and the rudest sh– comes out of them, hmm funny how that is yeah.
Thanks for Wowing our Moms. And for being open on weekends (oibviously) so I can last minute Christmas shop. I bought my dad a mini air hockey game from The Drake General Store one year.
Sunglasses fetish. The trick is to know the shape of your face. We have heart shaped faces so cat’s eyes work. Plus we have cat’s eyes too. Meow!
I had that black backpack as a kid.
They got the hipster space pillows too. Jealous awesome I love it. Do those travel pillows actually work or do people just buy them to look like they’re flying a star trek spaceship? Btw there are always cute girls in the Gen store it gives you nervous boners I mean that’s what I heard and when I say you I totally do not at all mean me.
Ladies who lunch. Gee who’s PR heel is that???
Think ‘em girls did the city well happy you had a lovely afternoon and the sun was shining.
VIPLEASE all-star treatment that’s how we do.
I want that sweater.
Tracey and her tea. Your British roots are showing. Seriously if we’re practically late for something we will still have time to go to Tim Ho’s drive thru somehow to get a tea for Tracey. INFURIATING.
What’s a Tracey post w/o some family secrets in it?
First I wanted the gold pig, now I want the pink one. NEED. For all my foreign collections of coins.
Your dog is hairy.
Nice clover showcase.
So Thelma and Loiuse right now. You can both be Geena Davis.
My top favourite photo of the post.
Just give me everything.
Look it’s NDP you two.
How many brunchangover pictures do I have of myself on this patio heh. That was rhetorical. I want an ALT NOW.
Those candles are a classic Tracey present. If you get a candle from her IT MEANS SOMETHING.
Totally Apothecary. Good one guys.
Loot there it is.
And that’s that Happy Mother’s Daymi! XOXO. Now you go spoil your moms now.
Thanks for the sweet genetics.
