I have been SO bad about updating the My Little Pretty site. I hadn’t uploaded any of the press or photographs from shoots/red carpet events, etc. since 2006 *gasp*

I guess that’s what happens when you are too busy huh – haha. As a business owner who also happens to be a designer, I sometimes find it hard to wear ALL the hats. Not to mention, I have a tough time drawing a line in the sand as to what I’m not going to do.

We’ve paid someone to help get the behind the scenes in tip top shape for our wholesale shopping section. We are wrapping that up and I decided I HAD to update the rest of the information on the site before we unveil the new shopping section to our buyers.

I added six pages of photos from the last year and a half. It could have been more too – haha. My Little Pretty has been doing a TON and has been involved in a lot of photo shoots and magazine stuff. So … I asked Ron to teach me how to do it myself.

At first I was totally intimidated. I wasn’t sure I could do it, but I didn’t let the doubts creep in. Instead, I buckled down and tuned things out and focused on the code that skeers me ;-). I tackled it and all the pictures even work – woohoo.

Ron also helped get the new Spa Boutique for a Cure page up and running for me. It feels good to have the site up to date and once we add the wholesale shopping area – my hope is that re-orders will be much easier for my stores.

Want to see what MLP has been up to in photos?

Wheres My Damn Answer’s Weblog

Swept Under the Rug is a topic that covers things we don’t want to deal with, but know that we need to.

My thing that I need to deal with is my annual charity event, Spa Boutique for a Cure. It was originally set for March 2, 2008, but because that was the day of the LA Marathon we pushed it back to the end of April. Now the hotel has hit me with a bunch of hidden fees that they didn’t mention before and it looks like I’m back to square one all over again – ugh

I find myself toggling with whether or not I should still push forward. I have a TON on my plate. My Little Pretty has taken a huge turn with lots of changes involved. It is taking a lot more of my energy to find a place of balance, to figure out what needs to be done to make the turn be successful the quickest, etc. Do I really have the energy left to put into Spa Boutique for a Cure? I don’t know. I sat on the bathroom floor with my husband Ron the other night and cried – tears of being overwhelmed. On one hand, I love the event and believe that everyone has to do “something”. In fact, last year there was a documentary filmed at the event and I believe they have me saying that very same thing on tape. That something for ME has been to raise money for breast and ovarian cancer research – to be able to help in even a tiny way helps me not feel helpless.

I have my list of pro’s … we have a sponsor already lined up, we have a lot of vendors who would surely like to be involved again, we have press connections, we have a red carpet and press wall. The con’s … we don’t have a venue, I don’t have a lot of cash to front this year, we don’t have a celebrity wrangler connection at the current time.

What to do … what to do. I know I need to make a decision and just move on it, but so far, I haven’t been able to.

:: looks at list :: …. maybe by Monday I will make up my mind …
