Boy Girl Dog, Mt Lawley

Last Wednesday, Joe and I were looking for pressies for Frances 27th birthday.
I suggested to go to Beaufort St as shopping mall gifts are so predictable.

Of course, I went to have lunch first at somewhere that I wanted to try for a long time 1st :)
Coincident okay coincident.

So, we went to theQueens, Beaufort St, My Lawley.

It's a pub restaurant. Very nice place to have a beer, food and even a game of pool :)

Joe ordered a pint of beer. It is as big as a bottle of water. Gosh.

Joe had beef, bacon & egg burger with swiss cheese, tomato, lettuce relish and fries.

I had the linguini pasta with banana prawns, roast capsicum, kalamata olives, sinach in basil pesto. This is the oiliest pasta I've ever eaten. It tasted very good!

After recharged, we started walking around to hunt for gifts...
and... we saw this quirky shop, BoyGirlDog and it is what we wanted! I mean Frances. :P

TOKIDOKI products everywhere in the shop!

What is tokidoki?

It's a white hot culture. Made in American by an Italian designer from Rome. tokidoki ("sometimes" in Japanese) is the Japanese-inspired lifestyle brand created in 2005 by Italian artist Simone Legno and his business partners Pooneh Mohajer and Ivan Arnold.

tokidoki produces apparel and other products using art and iconic characters designed by Simone Legno, including purses, t-shirts, vinyl figures, jewelry, and small toys.

Tokidoki is one of Frances favourite and unfortunately it is hard to get it here in Australia.
We wanted to order Tokidoki online, but it is so hard to grab the items there, it sold out really quick. So, after we found out that the lil quirky store sells Tokidoki, Joe and I were soooo happy as if we found gold!

Go there and have a look at the shop.
It's cool.

A note for Frances:
The shop is at Shop 2/611 Beaufort Street, Mt Lawley.
and you can get updates from them by just emailing them.
Have fun!
