One of our clients sent picture of her daughter wearing a Caheez™ hat. She was in Paris when the attacks happened earlier this month. The daughter just returned home safely to the United States. I know our hat had nothing to do with God's protection but I still felt connected to her, to the pain and the relief of a mother hearing her daughters voice after such a horrific event. And I am truly grateful that she made it home safely.
I want you to know that I pray for you. I pray for each hat when it is dropped in the mail, that God would cover each of you, our clients, and bless you because you have blessed us by ordering. I'm humbled and in awe of God right now because He never ceases to amaze me.
This story drives the desire for a wonderful holiday campaign all the more - about life and family and how we are all connected... How we have to have hope and faith and love for each other. How you never know what the next moment may bring... This speaks a deeper message... It's not just about the hats and accessories. This message is about life. Its about living life to the fullest and loving to the max; helping one another elevate and being the light of the world.
This holiday season (and everyday beyond it, I am challenged to be different; to make a difference. And I invite you to do and be the same. Let's make this season more than a feeling or celebration or style... Let's continue a lifestyle of being the light.
How? How can we be more than we've been in the past? Well for Team Caheez, it's more than making a hat. It's remembering and living out a purpose; WE (each of us) are the world. WE are the light. ❤️
Besides filming a commercial for Doritos (yup, ya girl was in a commercial and I can not wait to share it with you because it is hilarious), one of the dreaded things in the world happened to me. I dropped my precious iPhone 6 in a bowl of water. YIKES! Thankfully I was able to get a new phone because a brick just isn't as valuable to me as being accessible to you guys and keeping up with the hustle.
What an experience it was! I planned to snap pics and tweet and share all over social media through the entire day but of course that didn't happen because... well... I was careless and did something stupid. And after the cold sweats subsided and I realized there was absolutely nothing I could do about it, I decided to chill... take a much needed, albeit forced, day off.
It. Was. Lovely!
No email dings to alert me of pending disaster... no trills to tell me my kids wanted pizza again while I was off galavanting into unchartered territories of my own... no Periscope alerts saying so in so wants me to watch their video (which, I'm just getting into Periscope and think I've found my new love... now I just need to figure out how to post a video lol)... it was quiet on the set, for real. And I loved it!
Late in the afternoon, one of the other actors commented that I was having a really good attitude about the whole thing because he would have been climbing the walls. Well, I told him, at first, I was , believe me! But then I realized, while sitting there in green room, drinking that 4 hour old cup of coffee and listening to my stomach growl because I was rushing and didn't have time to eat before I got there... what good would griping about it do? What would a bad attitude possibly accomplish? I was having a ball... watching the other actors make the scene come alive and laughing as the slates were announced after every blooper reel was finally brought back under control. Sure, it would have been awesome to have taken some pictures and shared all that wonderfulness with the world as it was happening... but sometimes, the little things... like being aware of what was going on around me instead of being buried in my phone playing Words with Friends to pass the down time... sometimes those tiny details are what makes life absolutely great. And in spite of it all... I had a GREAT day! ❤️
P.S. Once the commercial is done, I'll post links to it. It's going to be hilarious and we could use all the votes we can get for our Doritos submission! Superbowl, here we come!!!
So... as you've seen, the new logo is up and running. I couldn't be more excited about it either! And to commemorate that milestone for this brand, I give you, the Caheez T-shirt!
I mean, it's been an awesome week so far! How much more can I take?
Our goal is to sell 20 shirts in a week. Once we've met our minimum sales, the shirts will be printed and shipped out. You won't be charged until the minimum has been met. I hope you love them as much as I do!
And as a bonus, we've created a little catch phrase my daughter penned: Kinkalicious! How deliciously natural is that?!
So please click the links and snatch up these t-shirts while the campaign lasts. We only have a week. If we sell our goals we will have more deliciously fun items available in the Caheez store!
Happy birthday to the Caheez™ Satin Line Beanie! It's been 2 years and 3 holiday seasons since I started lining hats with satin. I didn't know what I had when I made the first one. In the first year, shipped out about 750 hats. The second year we shipped out over 1600. It is now our day one anniversary, opening our third holiday/winter season, we already have orders for 450 hats in our cue. It's only November 3rd. We are off to a great start! Happy Birthday, Caheez™ Signature Collection!!
What am I supposed to write about? When should I publish and how often? Do I really have time to add one more thing to my "to do" list? Who wants to read this drivel anyway?!
So many questions and nary an answer. And yet, being the type A personality that I am, I find myself writing and not even knowing what I want to say. Or perhaps it's because I'm a creative mind that has far too many ideas rattling around inside her head to ever follow through with one of them to an exhaustive extent... OR, maybe I'm just a glutton for punishment! (It's probably the latter with a bit of all of the above mixed in!)
My name is Carla Helené. I am a cheeky naturalista, serial entrepreneur, speaker, educator and self love advocate who encourages women to embrace their truth, love themselves and make margaritas out of life’s lemons. Is there a recipe for this? I’m not sure I but I know we can figure it out together.
