Love Local: Figgy Duff Designs Handmade apparel & accessory designs by a small-town girl from 'Around da Bay'.

Sisters, Jess and Jana are "firm believers that life’s too short to not spend as much time as possible doing the things you love." For them, that includes baking, hair styling, make-up, fashion design, taking pictures, writing, eating, and traveling. You can follow their adventures on their Blog - Jess & Jana: We're Always at Somethin'.

I am a little bit obsessed with these girls, I'm not gonna lie. I mean, not obsessed in a crazy stalker sort of way. It's just that I love everything they do and want to follow them around and join their awesome adventures and eat all of their delicious sweets and have them dress me up and do my hair on a regular basis. What's so crazy about that?!

Jessika and Jana have a home-based baking business called Best Kind Bakeshoppe, located in Port-de-Grave, NL. They bake cupcakes, brownies, cookies and macarons, all from scratch and with only the most delicious of ingredients. 

You can find the girls selling their sweets on weekends at Some Good Market in Bay Roberts, and once a month in St. John's when Some Good Market Goes To Town!  Be sure to get there early because they sell out FAST! Cupcakes with names like Lemon Cheesecake and Strawberry Milkshake, Creme Egg and Cotton Candy Macarons, and Peep Brownies are to DIE for!

Jana is the driving force behind her clothing line, Figgy Duff Designs. She says, "Figgy Duff Designs is my own interpretation of the inspiration I find all around me here at home - sometimes it's the scenery, sometimes it's a song, sometimes it's the food.  These creations have been building up in my soul for quite some time - it's been a dream at least 15 years in the making. I've been sketching clothing since I was about 12 years old, and I spent a couple of years studying Fashion Design & Merchandising, so Figgy Duff just made sense."

I rocked this shirt on Patty's Day

But first, Brennen and I had to take a 'sealfie'!

Awesome work, girls! I am a fan, and will be following you for a long time! (Not literally. You know, not in a crazy stalker sort of way!)

Figgy Duff Designs is available in St. John's at Model Citizens on Duckworth Street and online at
