Shop Local! Pis tanne moi pas!
A few facts before we get started:
- For my English friends, tanne moi pas, means don’t bother/bug me or buzz off! Tannant is a pain in the butt, but is often used in a teasing, endearing way. Tanne moi pas can be inserted in an English sentence, pretty much any sentence. Example: I went to the mall and the man behind me was standing too close to me, man, tanne moi pas!

We all talk about how we love shopping local, in this post I have partnered with a local business woman and I would love for you to support her small business, just because she is awesome. Her name is Lynn and she’s kind of a bad ass, she’s had to deal with multiple life challenges that would have brought most of us to our knees, yet she’s still standing and most days, like 99%, with a smile on her face.
I first became aware of her and her company Dowd Street Studio, when I was living in Las Vegas a few year’s ago. I saw that one of my Instagram friends had gotten a bunch of sassy and chiac shirts. Being both sassy and at times chiac, I knew I needed to have one of her shirts.
(Chiac – is a French Acadian dialect that mixes English words with French and vice versa, originating in south eastern NB.)
On my next trip to Moncton, I visited a spring market and I bought a Right Picasse T-shirt. Her T-shirts and sweatshirts are top quality and super cozy and let’s be honest, we are now living a more casual lifestyle where comfyness is key.
On a dark snowy wintery evening I reached out to Lynn to see if she would be interested in doing a collaboration with me on a sweatshirt design and to my delight, she thought it would be fun.
We decided upon: tanne moi pas, which means, don’t bother me or buzz off. We thought this was the perfect sassy tag line for our colab.
The shirts are a nice charcoal gray, the wording is a soft pink, almost white. That being said it’s a unisex shirt, I actually need to see it on a man!! I promise it’s not too pink, plus men can wear pink!
The sizing is also unisex and it’s meant to be big and comfy. The fleece inside is super duper soft. I love that she offers a variety of sizes from medium to 3X.

PS – I am not profiting from the sale of these shirts, they stay with this small local business. I did get a free shirt, it’s my new fav!
