The one thing that made this crazy week of work a little more bearable was knowing one of my closest friends was coming back for the weekend. At the moment it’s not only me but all of my friends who are extremely busy with building careers so getting everyone together in the same place at the same time is a lot harder than it used to be. It was a warm and beautiful day and exactly the kind of down time i needed. We spent the day playing tennis, having a picnic with too many homemade treats and sugary sweets, and enjoyed the sunlight before an afternoon thunderstorm settled in. Unfortunately, with all my swinging and arm waving, I ripped my top and quickly realised this probably wasn’t the most suitable outfit to wear playing tennis. I suppose it didn’t hurt getting some overdue exercise though. Well I’ve been so flat out with the store this week I’ve barely had time to post anything. I know I say that all the time but I’ve had one of the most productive weeks I’ve had in about 3 months. What have i been doing? Well not only is the paperwork side of my business all in order but I’ve been busy prepping the Tuchuzy collection ready for the first meeting with the boutique on Wednesday. I can also confirm a jewelry designer based in the US has just joined the Gary Pepper team and will be creating some amazing pieces for the store! I can’t wait to show you her creations and I already know how much you guys will love them. It kind of freaks me out when I read those somewhat cliche horoscopes that describe my life exactly at that moment. Today mine said: “Inspiration is all around and now you are taking advantage of it. Other-worldly Neptune portrays your situation in an idealistic light and you find a collaborator who is receptive to your vision. Express yourself and show friends a good time“. I’ve never read a horoscope that couldn’t be more precise and i’m extremely grateful to have stumbled across this talented jewelry designer.

I really hope you all had a wonderful weekend and let’s hope this weather clears up so I can go shoot some photos for my blog. I’m feeling more inspired than ever and have an over flowing wardrobe of new purchases I need to document asap!
