Hello, Hello, Hello! So excited to get this going again. So many cool things are coming up this year I don’t even know where to begin.
I’m so happy to end my previous blog. I got wild and unorganized. I began forcing material instead of writing about the things taking place right in front of me. I was, however, able to log over fifty entries in a little under two years- something I’m pretty proud of and will be hanging on to for nostalgia’s sake.
I will be giving this blog a little more exposure for sheer Vera Largo purposes. Most of the material I write about will be a product of the traveling I do, so I want to share with as many viewers as possible. Other entries will be poems. Other entries will be The Really Random Breakfast.
So let’s go! This year started off right with a very productive trip to NYC. Two trade shows are right around the corner- Chicago next week and Vegas February 17. Last August we participated in the Vegas show and scrambled to piece together decorations for our booth. This year, we are learning from our past and planning everything. No more going to the Las Vegas Dollar Store and buying tiki torches and lei’s an hour before the show. Seriously- we did that…
One of the coolest pieces of the planning process is the promotional party. Sorry, I just got out of hand with the ‘P’ words.. But it’s a blast having an investor who wants to do some serious promoting. The party is in the works, but until everything is finalized I’ll keep the details to a minimum. Just know it will be big and I cant wait to start advertising it.
The line itself is evolving more and more. Currently we have swim shorts, shorts, pants, several different Tee’s, polo’s, button up’s, jackets & blazers, hats & beanies. I tossed and turned until two a.m. last night because of how excited I am. It’s fun being involved in something that your friends have no idea just how big it is.. This year is basically us getting our feet wet. Spring and fall- we’re covering the map in specialty stores preparing for a ridiculously big Spring ’15 launch. It was hard for me to understand- Why are we in so many stores but not in Texas? ESPECIALLY when I see local t-shirt companies popping up left and right, doing well and doing it quick. I have to remind myself of whats coming. I have to tell myself to be patient. Locally, we will be selling website only for the most part but we promise, we will be here.
Lastly- The past two saturdays i have woke up with either Cracker Barrel or Waffle House on my mind- I was up early and had no one to go with. By no one i mean Brenna or close friends. Part of this blog is going to be The Really Random Breakfast. Ha, I’m really excited about this. Basically, 90% of my Facebook friends i know nothing about. I know who they are dating, married to, or other boring things, but I don’t know them personally. That is my goal with this part- it’ll be fun. Taking the least expecting people to eat a really good breakfast.
Fun Fact: If you put a raisin in a glass of champagne, it will keep floating to the top and sinking to the bottom. This is a good party trick if no one comes to your party.
