The occasional Haute Mess

Hi everyone, hope all is well and you’re having a nice Spring thus far  :D  Life has been busy with all kinds of things and I definitely don’t take anything for granted (you’ll see eventually here and/or on Instagram.) I will be in LA next month, and then @Twelthfknight and I are going to Denver, so I have a few things lined up there already.

Now, being human and my own boss, I really feel it on occasion. They say the hustle is real, well it is, but it’s something I’m used to. Sometimes I get a little squirly, really tired, and maybe slightly pent up if I’m lacking inspiration and content. And then sometimes…. my calendars don’t sync and I miss a doc appointment (twice.) Or I am a little groggy at 5am and I don’t manage to make it 4 lanes over into the 101 northbound and find myself detouring around SFO airport to make it 35 miles north in time for a magazine shoot. (fact)

But because we as multi-taskers and boss ladies do so many things all at once while still trying to keep cool, man….I will allow myself the occasional haute mess moment. Because maybe your coffee tasted weaker than normal and you ran out of milk, or you got stuck behind a Prius who pumps the brakes too often to be safe which sends you into a mini Mad Max fury, or… you might just wake up salty for salt’s sake like I do sometimes. It’s the little things guys. As @Twelfthknight says as we walk through Safeway, “you’re like the red Kikkoman bottle, you should be less salty.” (He’s a funny guy that guy..)

So naturally, exhibit my tee from @BasicBtees. Jules gets me. Because sometimes you may not have your life together, but you sure as hell can still look good :D

Jules makes these hilarious eco friendly T shirts in Los Angeles and a portion of profits are donated to her organization Paving Pathways, helping women in Haiti become more self sufficient through business. Her Instagram is hilarious too and some of her tees are sold at various Cardio Barre locations for those who love the Barre. Lastly, if you want to order a T of your own, you can get 10% off by using code “shoesandsashimi” when you check out!

As always, thanks for reading.  It’s nice to be real on here, and I think by doing so you’re getting to know me better! Does anyone have a haute mess moment they’d like to share? :D

      Thank you Kat, I’ve been meaning to ask you for coffee soon. I just tried Provender and it’s one of my favorites, hope to schedule something if you’re up for it?
