in the store

Sold1I am not sure what it is about this month, but sales in the store have skyrocketed recently. Last year at this time, Potomac Trading Post had been open for less than four months. January sales were probably the lowest that they had been all year. I thought that perhaps it was something that I was doing wrong, but it turns out that the first month of the year is usually the slowest for retail stores (given that customers are still recovering from Christmas). This year, January has proven to be a profitable month so far. So thank you, everyone! I could not have done it and would not be here without all of you.

men : in the store

PM-J1186A_968_Virgin_FIGURE_01During the Christmas break, I was able to add almost a dozen new items to the store that were just for men. I was hoping to show you all these wonderful items sooner, but since then, nearly half of them have sold! I therefore chose to wait just a little longer to ensure that what I presented to you would still be available. Here they are :

ootds from the store

In The Store - 5Some of you older folks may be wondering what “ohhhh-tee-deee-ss” are. I often use this tag in my fashion posts, both on Instagram and my blog. It is internet slang for “Outfit of the Day.” It is a simplified search term that attracts other like-minded individuals to my social media sites. In other words, it’s just easier to write.

In The Store - 3Lately, I’ve been pairing up more clothing items when promoting what is now available at Potomac Trading Post. I find that I get more feedback from followers of the store, in addition to more sales. The OOTD pictures have a much cleaner look, as they are more in unison with one another. Here are a few examples of what I have been photographing.

Gin Watermelon Cocktail - Kinfolk 1This recipe is perfect for any Canada Day or Independence Day celebration. The combination of gin and grilled watermelon make it such a fun and summery drink. The best part is, this recipe serves four people (or one thirsty individual)!

Have a great Independence Day weekend!

Kinfolk_Vol16_TickledPink-4Pink Gin Cocktail With Grilled Watermelon (Kinfolk Magazine)

This refreshing cocktail will start off your warm summer evening right with a kick of gin, honey, lime and verbena.

Ingredients:

1/2 medium seedless watermelon (about 2 1/4 pounds or 1 kilogram)
4 fluid ounces (120 milliliters) gin
1 tablespoon honey, preferably acacia 3 limes
1/4 cup (5 grams) fresh lemon verbena, lemon balm or mint leaves, plus more for garnish
1/4 cup sugar
Ice cubes, for serving

Method:

1. Peel the watermelon and cut half of it into small cubes and the other half into larger wedges. Put the cubes into a blender along with the gin and honey. Add the finely grated zest and juice of the first lime, plus the juice of a second lime. Blend until the mixture is smooth and frothy. Let the cocktail stand for 5 minutes to infuse the flavors.

2. Pulse the lemon verbena and sugar in a food processor until the herb is very finely minced and blended with the sugar. Transfer the mixture to a small plate and set aside.

3. Meanwhile, heat a grill pan over high heat until smoking hot. Grill the watermelon wedges until marks appear, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Arrange the grilled melon on a platter and sprinkle with the finely grated zest and the juice of the third lime and a little coarsely chopped lemon verbena.

4. Rub the rim of 4 cocktail glasses with one of the squeezed limes to lightly moisten, then dip it in the sugar mixture to get an even coating. Fill the glasses with ice and pour in the cocktail through a fine strainer. Serve immediately with the warm grilled watermelon.
