I really want to host another exhibition or art fair in the near future, or perhaps a christmas fair? With a range of artists, zine makers, jewellers, independent clothing companies, cake makers and perhaps even some cocktails thrown in there? I think it would be a great opportunity for local creatives to meet and show what they do.
We stumbled across a fabulous ice cream shop in Barcelona, in the Barceloneta area. Vioko, they make the most irresistible ice cream, blended with western tradition of gelato enriched with new vision and perspective of other worlds, I’ve never tasted anything quite like it. The atmosphere, products and attention to detail is impeccable. It felt like we were walking into modern day Willy Wonka factory, it was truly amazing the smells were divine; and from not only their exquisite ice creams they also have an amazing range of sweets, cakes and chocolates and the design of the shop itself, was stunning, I really do hope they come to the UK, I know I would definitely want to see a franchise over here, maybe I could run it? Mmmmm Heaven.
