Last Saturday I had my Pop-Up Shop at West Elm Dadeland! I was so excited and crazy nervous about it. Thankfully I had my sister,Stefy and Jackie to help me setup! They were amazing! I really couldn’t have done it alone. The West Elm staff was also very kind and helpful and made me feel right at home in their store. Delightful team!
So many friends came by to show their support, I truly felt loved. I tend to have little faith in things I’m very excited about. Its probably because I’m afraid of it going badly, or just maybe just assuming the worst- so if it does go badly, my pride isn’t too wounded. I made a lot of sales to friends and to people that I didn’t know. It was definitely an encouraging adventure.
Hope to have more Pop-Up shops in the future of Hustle Sauce!

It’s been a while since I posted anything! Life got crazy. Quick! Work was intense (but I love it), then we went to Brazil (pics coming soon!), then I got really sick and then Danny got really sick! Lol point is, things get in the way. That stinks, but I’m still here!
This past Friday, my awesome friends at Grizzly Print Parlour (the awesome dudes who print me tees) threw an epic bash! Civilians was playing, a delicious food truck was present and live T-shirt and poster printing was happenin’! These guys know how to throw a party! It was so fun seeing everyone there! I had a blast! Thank you Chris, Alex and Brian for all your hard work for Hustle Sauce and for providing an awesome party for the people! Check out some [iphone] pics!

This is Yesica. She’s beautiful, kind and an extremely talented photographer and blogger. She has one of 2 special edition Hustle Hard Tees. There are about 14 special edition tees that no one else owns. Hehe. I was really excited to see how she would style the tee because she is always so stylish! Check it out! She posted it on her blog!

So we still haven’t moved into our new home yet. A lot has been happening, so the process has been delayed. The roof had to be replaced and we are in the middle of the bathroom being remodeled. Its been a month since we’ve been new home owners. I can’t wait to move in. Honestly. I want us to have our own home. Entirely us. Our choice of paint, our choice of furniture, etc. We haven’t really had that since we short-saled the apartment 3 years ago. I’m so excited. We’ve been slowly moving things in every other day or so. We pack some boxes and I drop them off in the morning before going into work. Danny goes every other day (when he’s not working like dog!) to fix things, add lamps, clean up, mow the lawn, etc. I’m hoping we’ll be in the house in 2 weeks! (crosses fingers!) In the meantime, here’s a picture of Gunner looking of so handsome in my living room with the little furniture we have! :)

Hey all! Hope you’ve had a great week so far! Just writing to update on the running.
Its been going. I skipped a week..mainly because Miami’s weather has been somewhat monsoon-like. Other than that, its been great! I’ve been running about 3x a week. I’ve lost 10 lbs too! (which means I did the running test thingy and got new kicks in celebration of the first goal accomplished!) Eating clean has definitely helped speed up the process of shedding some pounds. At first running was something very daunting… I’m a terrible runner. I can lift a lot of weight, but that’s about it when it comes to my fitness. Since I started, its gotten so much better. I feel like I can actually keep going! Miracle. Also, my running partners are always new and on rotation. Andy, Enamarie, Carlos, Shany, Andy, Chazney, Rosa… love them all for wanting to do this with me. It really helps a lot! Danny hasn’t been able to run because he’s been working like crazy while attending classes! So, I’m definitely grateful for the friends that accompany me on the way.

I purchased a pair of Yellow Mtng Originals Ryan Sandal from Free People. I saw them on Love, Taza and investigated immediately where they were from. I found out later that she sited the brand so that helped a lot. I wanted them for our trip to Brazil this August (can’t wait!). Anyway…I got them in mail last night when I came back from the concert. It was the best post-concert treat ever. ha! Obvi, I wore them today. I’ve bragged about ‘em al day. I call them my banana sandals. hehe. They’re extremely comfortable. I’m contemplating purchasing another pair in another color…brown, red perhaps… but I need to keep a tight budget. Can’t go crazy.
So, Ena did a quick photo shoot after work…so here are the pics. (via iPhone)

So happy people are lovin’ this shirt. It really encourages me in this new adventure. I’m in the process of creating a new shirt. I would never do any of this if people didn’t respond so well. So thank you to all the who love the shirt! If you have one, please feel free to send me a pic! I’d love to post it!
