Spring/Summer 2017 Collection: Behind the Scenes Photoshoot

Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much happening this week (and why I went missing on this blog…very sorry about that). Behind the scenes, I’ve worked on two photoshoots- including this one for my upcoming Spring/Summer 2017 collection. Plus meetings. Plus volunteering for International Women’s Day (one such activity over at Direct Relief, lending a hand with my friend Laurie and 70 other women putting together post-surgical care packages for women affected by Obstetric Fistula). It was an intense week. But vital. This afternoon through tomorrow evening, however, I rest. But first, these behind the scenes shots… One more post a little later today. Until then, I hope you’ve got a good Friday going!

Behind the Scenes on the Spring/Summer collection shoot

How dreamy is the behind the scenes video that Erin made during the Spring/Summer collection photoshoot? Really dreamy, I think.  She was a filming ninja; I had no idea she caught 3/4 of this. Such a lovely gift. Thanks, Erin! I’m in the process of editing the photos, but intend to have the launch up by early next week. I’ve gotten back into making more of the bridal hair flowers again and I’m happy with that so… soon soon… and exciting!

Day Trip: Santa Monica Pier

I took a day trip to LA yesterday to meet my niece, who is vacationing from Massachusetts, at the Santa Monica Pier. I had totally forgotten about this place, but she suggested it so I sucked it up and played tourist for a little while. There’s something about amusement parks that both thrill and terrify me, but I suppose that’s the whole point. But you know I really got excited over the colors against the blue sky, bright with sunshine and the Pacific ocean. It’s really pretty cute if you can get past the hoards of people with their selfie sticks. And then here we are. I’m freezing from the late afternoon whipping wind and Jasmine, well, she’s a tougher New England girl. Somehow I lost all sense of decency since I became a Californian and start to whimper once the temperature hits below 67 degrees. Ah well. Cute, huh?

Behind the Scenes / AW 2015 Photoshoot

Want a peek into the AW 2015 collection? It’s set to launch in about a week, so I thought to share some behind the scenes shots. I got Myriah on to photograph the images of lovely Erin modeling and, my gosh, she nailed it. They nailed it. And aren’t these bts captures so great?! Me, Erin, and Myriah. So freaking cute. Onward to last minute details before these accessories, and more, become available for order in the shop. Countdown begins…now.

Sunday Morning Inspiration

Enjoying a lovely and inspiring Sunday morning? I sure hope so! Truth told from my end, I’m rushing around before I head out for the day, trying to make computer programs work that just don’t feel like working (curses mercury retrograde!). My life this past week has been all about prepping for the new lines, set to launch on October 18th. I’m pretty proud of the diversity of products because they’re all very close to my heart. I use, wear, experience them every day and am feeling passionate about sharing them with the world. But that means I’m in hyper-focus mode until 3am most nights. So, coffee. And pretty things to work with. And snack breaks with friends interspersed in-between; because if there’s one thing I’ve learned over the past few years, it’s that a balanced social life/work life is vital to my wellbeing. Now to just get the computer to play along without it being bratty. Onward. More updates, including a pre-sale giveaway, coming soon! Happy Sunday, friends. Love, Cath [ via oh joy ]
