Hello darlin’ and welcome back!
I have so much to tell you! We are moving along on our shoppe remodel quite nicely! As of now we just need to finalize the lighting and flooring! I am currently working on the decor of the place, and all of my creative juices are being sucked into that. Our inventory is 90% completed, which is insane!! I think I will dedicate a post when things calm down a little bit on how we took the plunge and the baby steps we had to take to get to where we are. I know some of you think this was all out of the blue but we have been working on this for the past 2 years! Our goal was to open by the time we are 30 but why wait? P.S. if you have been a reader for quite some time you may remember me mentioning my business note book… ta-da!
As most of you know we were in Chicago last weekend for the Bridal Week. It’s basically a huge market with hundreds of designers and other vendors showing their 2019 collections to buyers, retailers and press. We were there for 2 days. The first day was a conference which involved a lot of sitting, listening and learning. We were soaking it all in and really taking everyones experience and advice to heart! On that day we also got to meet the CEO of Mon Cheri, Steve. It was so surreal. He is the most hard working man we have ever encountered. The drive and passion he has for this industry is just so empowering!
The following day we watched runway shows, met with reps and found new lines we will be carrying. I am so excited to announce that our shoppe will be carrying Badgley Mishka shoes! One of the pairs that is coming out this season is fully beaded with Swarovski crystals.
I also filmed our weekend you can watch it by clicking on this link!
I did get my eyelash extensions again! This time I went for a mix between the Russian Lashes and the Full Lashes. I love this combo so much! They look so beautiful and natural! If you are in the Twin Cities area I highly recommend you get your lashes done by Kari! She is so great! Follow this link to view her profile! Also if you mention my name you can get $50 off a lash set or $10 off refill.
