I am writing this while packing my suitcase, making some earrings for my trip, creating my newsletter for the yoga studio, and simultaneously kicking myself for choosing the 6am flight. Meaning, I am waking up at 3:30am. That’s in the morning, people. But I am just ridiculously excited to be flying out to Austin to visit Kaleo on tour, so in the big picture, I don’t mind at all.
Whitney and I have been busy little bees making jewelry for our line and I’m really happy to announce the launch very soon. Website is being created, but we still don’t have a finalized logo. However, for now this will suffice:
bella + bug
Beachy, Boho designs for the savvy lovechild…
Our pieces are handcrafted using gold and silver, with gorgeous stones such as new jade and colorful sea pearls. We love to use shells and natural elements we’ve found on our travels to the beaches of France, Portugal, Bali, Costa Rica and beyond. We make what we love to wear, creating own personal collection of pieces that have a Bohemian, Beachy vibe. It just started to grow from there!
When I return from tour I will be staging some photos to post here and then hopefully our site will be up not too long after. As of October 1st, you can find them in my boutique, and a couple of others very shortly after. Eden visited this weekend and I sent her home with some pieces for her birthday. First person ever to wear bella + bug besides Whitney and I! :)
Okay, enough shameless self-promotion. I should get back to my to-do list shortly. I feel like I have been extremely productive lately, which feels amazing. However I must say, I think I need to slow down a bit. The other day I got ready to go to the studio and it was pretty cold out. In fact it was the first day of Fall, so it was seriously chilly. I put my slippers on as I walked out the door and quickly decided that I needed shoes with socks. So I went back in and put on my running shoes. As I stepped out, I noticed I was still freezing so I ran back in and grabbed a scarf. That should do it! Third time locking my front door and walking out to my car that was parked on the street. Why am I still so cold?? I can’t wait to get in and put my seat warmers on… As I put one foot in the car I looked down and realized that I was NOT WEARING ANY PANTS. Underwear, yes. Yoga pants? Not so much. Here I was, looking like a fool wearing running shoes, a tee shirt, underwear and a scarf. On my street in the morning when everyone is out walking their dogs. With pants on. Them, not me. Even some of the dogs wear clothes, for crying out loud! I was horrified as I ran back into my house, frantically trying to unlock the door with my cold, bare ass out there for the world to see. (sigh)
So that’s my awkward moment of the week. Now I must get back to my packing so I can fly out in the AM. So excited to se my love. Falling in love everyday is so important, and oh so fun. Have a wonderful week!
Peace in, Peace out…
