Catching Up

Hello there, my beautiful Jeans and Tees and Travel and Cakes readers! I am mucho sorry for the lack of posts lately. I've been working really hard on my new little business, which I'll tell you more about in a little bit, and I'm also back in school, so papers and reading about Fashion forecasting has been consuming my life as of late. I guess being busy is a good thing but I've missed writing to you. So I've made a promise to myself to get back on the blog train and post, post, post! So with that said, this is what has been going on in my life lately.

I got PICKPOCKETED!

Kyle and I were enjoying a beautiful day in Limoges by going to the center of the city and having a drink outside. It was such a nice afternoon UNTIL two girls approached our café table, I have seen this before in Paris and immediately Kyle and I said no to whatever they were trying to offer us, we knew they were Gypsies and were trying to pickpocket. Well they succeeded, in the midst of us saying no to one of the girls, the other girl successfully stole my cell phone! Which I didn't realize until a minute later when they already disapeared into the crowded city streets. I looked at Kyle and said, "my cell phone is gone." Kyle went to look for them but no luck, tears welled up in my eyes.

When something is stolen from you especially a cell phone, you feel so vulnerable and on top of that we weren't home, we are in France, so I couldn't just go to the nearest AT&T store and tell them my predicament. But thank goodness for technology, the iphone was immediately erased from our computer and AT&T blocked any further use, so the phone was now junk, TAKE THAT THEIVES! My new phone is on its way from the States and should be here in a few days.

T-Shirts, T-Shirts, T-Shirts!

As I mentioned a few posts back, I opened my own little T-Shirt shop on Skreened and I am so proud to say it has really taken off. My first month  of sales has really shocked me, who knew people loved cupcakes, coffee and wine as much as I do, so much so that they want to show the world by wearing it on a T-Shirt. Seeing my designs splashed all over Pinterest by strangers is very surreal and to know that people all over the United States and abroad will be wearing my creations is an awesome feeling.

Below are some of the Shop's Best Sellers, stop by the shop and let me know what you think. If you are to purchase a tee and have instagram make sure you post a picture in your new tee and hashtag #jeansteestravelcakes so I can put you up on the site!

Wedding Planning!

I keep asking Kyle if I should be more stressed out about our wedding. Everything is going so smoothly even as we plan from over here in France. I head to New York in two weeks where I will get some more stuff done.  It's been so much fun planning and I am really lucky to have a guy who is into the planning part of it, so I never feel like I am doing it alone. I also have to thank Pinterest, I don't know what brides did before it, there are so many great ideas on the site, it really gets my creative juices flowing.

So that's my life in a nutshell right now, no complaints except for the pickpocketing but other then that life is good! Our approach heading into this year overseas has made all the difference, we are focusing more and more on the little things in life, which makes us appreaciate this opportunity more and more.
