Let’s Do Brunch – Birds and the Beet

Let’s Do Brunch – Birds and the Beet

October 10, 2017

The holidays are fast approaching and the Devi Arts Collective is getting a brand new look! This has been a long time coming and I’m really excited about it. I sat down for brunch with a member of my team last week to make a plan for the website redesign, which we’re hoping to launch at the beginning of November.
 
The new website will feature beautiful photographs of the entire Devi collection, an easy-to-navigate online store, and a clean blogging template where we’ll continue to share our stories and tips.

But let’s talk a little bit more about brunch! I love a good vegetarian dish, and since my team members all work remotely I’ve been getting together with them every few months to touch base over some food.


This month my editor joined me at Birds and the Beet – a hip café in Vancouver’s Gastown, with delicious wholesome homemade fair. We both enjoyed a bowl of Rolled Oat & Chia Bircher Muesli and a hot drink. I had an almond milk latte and she had a loose leaf tea.
 
I recently purchased a new camera to capture some of my new pieces and to offer you quality looking behind-the-scenes snaps on our Instagram account. We put that camera to use before we ate. Yes, we were those people carefully posing our food and finding the right angle, and although Christine nearly backed into another table of guests, I think it was worth it in the end. Also, the anticipation which built up before we finally ate didn’t let us down. The muesli was as good as it looks.

 
Our mantra for the new design is simple, elegant, and beautiful. We want a platform that will showcase what we’ve been building in a way that is easy to navigate and even easier to share.
 
We can’t wait to share it with you.
 
In the meantime, make sure you check out our Instagram account for updates on our nature-inspired jewelry and some behind-the-scenes snaps from our markets. You can find us @DeviCollective

Every month someone on my team asks me a question for this series, and after some reflection I share my thoughts/answer. This month, they let me off easy.

As we mourn for all the students lost in these shootings, I think it’s important to stretch our awareness to the many children lost to gun violence around North America, during events that haven’t been documented in the same way.

We had just left the ashram, and we made our way to this colonial town with a sort of ‘laissez faire’ attitude. Let’s just see what happens. We planned to stay for about a week.
