productively unproductive

O’my today was unproductive, but on the other hand if feels like I achieved more than I did the whole of last week. Is that possible? Maybe a little contradicting, don’t you think?

Here is the story: Our Nanny (Dearest sweet Alicia) had the day off to attend her granddaughter’s kindergarten Graduation, a big day for her! So basically we also took the day off, I felt guilty the whole day for not working... except for one meeting we had with a t-shirt supplier of ours, they are amazing. Him and his wife own the company, they specialize in basics, almost like American Apparel, they started off with just the wholesale division and recently opened a really cool store.

We will be retailing out of there store from start of December, I am so excited about this, both of our companies are relatively small and will do each other a world of justice. A new chapter is unfolding, two new retailers for our labels. Reason for not linking their website or mentioning their names (yet) is because it is still very hush-hush and as soon as it happens it will be happening with a BANG! Here are a couple of pictures of our label called Dead Adorable, we are the models too. View the website and read the bio of the label here, under brands.

Romy’s younger brother (Kristian) and his girlfriend (Nicole) are visiting us, they both are still studying, so they have summer holidays, 3 months of lounging around... (envy)

Kristian is a graphic designer in the making and Nicole a fashion designer... they are lovely and I enjoy having them around, as cheesy as it may sound, but there is nothing like young love and being in the presence of it. They make an amazing couple and I am sure they will get married one day and live happily ever after, or it’s just me being a hopeless romantic...

We spend a little part of the day with them, we went to get some Vida ‘e Coffee, I had a Chocolate Frio, it consists of only blended Lindt Chocolate and Ice, absolutely define!! Luca (my son) was there with us, he ate chocolate had some of my Frio and was just awesome and adorable, only one year old and has such developed characteristics, it’s amazing how much you can learn from a child.


(This is Luca the Amazing)

A wise old man told me once “you become what you surround yourself with”.

This is not the recipe for eternal youth, don’t get me wrong. You won’t become a child if you surround yourself with them... though, you will retrieve a fair bit of your lost childhood innocence, ignorance and grace, learn how to play again, attention to detail, the list goes on and on

You have not loved until you have loved a child, there is no love greater than that of a parents.

This is a drop in the ocean to what it feels like to love a child.

ps: how well do you think a chocolate frio would hold up in transport to the US?

Thank you:)
haha

I don't even think the chocolate frio would make it to the airport in this heat, maybe we can get you the chocolate and you can blend your own with ice?
