Baseball Season here we come!!!

I had to bring the BLOG back to WordPress for the moment, because we’re having some major technical difficulties @ the MLBlogs 😦

I am going to keep this BLOG going too & am working on improving the look & adding some links. This will be more behind the scenes and personal stuff in the future.

For the past month and a half I have been working with our developers to get an “Alpha” version of the site up. And I finally succeeded because it’s up!!! Yes, that’s right! If you got to www.baseballbeauties.com you will get the essence of what Baseball Beauties will be all about. No more nonsense & broken links. Don’t worry, you will be able to click around and “Join” once the site launches at the end of April, for now just check it out and let me know what you think? I want feedback, negative or positive all is welcome! We want to make the site the best it can be for you, the “User” so don’t hesitate to comment or write directly to:  baseballbeauties@gmail.com

Now that the site is looking much better, I planned and had a Photo shoot, which took place last Friday, March 27th

Not to give too much away, our featured Baseball Beauties name is Sarah, and she loves baseball =) She personalizes her baseball gears when she goes to games! We welcome Sarah to our team and I’m looking forward to working with her.  For the shoot we did a “Spring Theme”, so we used lots of bright spring dresses!

I just love spring! Followers are blooming, birds are singing, days are longer and the Baseball Season is starting what can be better than that =)

I will post a separate BLOG with all the Photo Shoot Detail next week =) & a sneak peak into the finished pictures!

We are working with 2 wonderful Vintage stores in Berkley: Dolled Up Vintage & Twisters Vintage, they share a website: http://www.twistersvintage.com/ these stores have such a generous selection of Vintage clothes, it’s like a dream come true. They have a HUGE warehouse full of Vintage stuff ranging from the 1930 all the way up to the 80s! We are very lucky to have found them, and will be using their clothing for all of our shoots from now on. They are going to be at the Vintage Fashion Expo in San Francisco this weekend: http://www.vintageexpo.com/ anyone who has any fashion sense or interest should go and check out all the wonderful pieces, it’s like having history unfolded in front of you from the past 100 years!  Baseball Beauties will be there =)

Another cool thing that happened to me, I won tickets to: http://www.web2expo.com/webexsf2009 Web 2.0 Expo going on in San Francisco March 31st –April 3rd!

On to some Baseball!

I was very lucky to go to Spring Training this year =) Baseball Beauties are based in California, so I went to AZ (Cactus League) Even though I was there for 1 full day, I had an awesome time and came to a realization that Baseball Season is just around the corner! That means that Baseball Beauties is going to launch in less than a month!

I went to the A’s vs. LA Dodgers game on Monday, March 16th. We had great seats in the shade and I was enjoying a cold beer =) and eating a pretzel (my favorite ball park snack) At first the A’s were down and then by the 4th inning they picked back up and won by 2 points ending the game with 12 to 10 As! At the 7th inning stretch I went to the A’s store and bought a cool St Patrick’s A’s tank top. It’s really neat that the A’s colors go so well with that Holiday!

It was really nice to get away and enjoy the 85F AZ weather! Baseball was in the air, people were wearing all sorts of baseball gear, representing their teams =) I downloaded the MLB app to my I-Phone and have been following Spring Training on there. Almost forgot to say! We’re working on a Baseball Beauties I-Phone application, so look for that in the next few months.

Now that the season is just around the corner Blogging will be a lot easier =)

Here is a little bit from my partner in crime Amy!

I agree with Anna it has been way too long since we updated our blog, and there is so much to talk about.  Being Anna’s “partner in crime” I was very very jealous that she was able to attend spring training in AZ while I sat at home in California…. I can only hope that next year that baseball beauties will be there in force.. ( with me very much included :))

So on to baseball, I knew that there wouldn’t be not much shortage of stuff to write about with spring training beginning and before that the trades that had been taking place, most notably, and ending with Manny’s circus act with the Dodgers….

But I just didn’t and can’t believe that A-rod would still be grabbing headlines after the Madonna debacle earlier this year….You think that the guy may have decided to lay low and maybe actually just focus on baseball, and not put himself on the covers of magazines that have nothing to do with sports.

But, I guess that was too much to ask for as he graces the cover of Details Magazine for the month of April…. One photo in particular inside

a-rod-and-mirror-image

has A-rod practically kissing himself in the mirror., though I have to admit as a girl never thought A-Rod was one of the elite baseball players in terms of hotness factor, but his arms do look very very good.  Anyways, I will let you judge for yourself on the pics.

Now we count down to the opening day!

Another Monday Inspiration!

I know that I said that I will be writing more often, so here is a Monday morning toast to a good start of the week! Cheers 🙂

I am sitting at my desk with Lily on my lap (Lily is 1 of the 2 chihuahuas that I own) Bebe is sleeping in her pouch of a bed. Lily always needs to be on my lap! She’s is so needy… LOL

See my little friends bellow…. (Lily is the one is the front and Bebe is the one in the back)

This weekend I decided to take some time off and finished up all of my Christmas shopping, cards, wrapping and whatever else goes with this nonsense… Don’t get me wrong I love Christmas, but the preparation that goes with the whole Holiday season is really stressful and time consuming! But seeing the faces of your friends and family when they’re opening the gifts that you got them is priceless 🙂 Make sure you give gifts this year, even though our economy is down, we still deserve to indulge a little… At least that’s my theory, and I’m sticking to it 🙂

From now on when talking about Baseball Beauties, I am going to refer to it as: BaseballBeauties (this way it is easier to recognize the name and the brand in general)

This being a short week, I am going to attempt to finish my Business Market Plan and also start a few other small projects.

1. I decided that in order to have users subscribe to our YouTube Channel we need to have weekly video uploads! So, Amy and I are going to record a weekly BaseballBeauties variety show, it’s never going to be longer than 2 minutes and it will be entertaining 🙂 (at least we will try and make it entertaining!) so you can tune in every week… We’re going to have a really cool intro, which my cartoon artist is going to design for us. A Baseball Beauty is going to walk into a pitch black room and turn on our neon sign (this is an actual sign and it’s hanging in my office and will be seen in our variety show as well)

It looks much cooler in real life! And in the closing, the cartoon Baseball Beauty will turn the sign off. And it will remain off until our next show. I’m hoping that people will get hooked 🙂

2. I’m going to schedule another photo shoot for our BaseballBeauties gallery. I met a really nice girl with a really cool name, Michean (I’ve never met anyone with that name before) in the ER in Las Vegas last weekend. I know, strange circumstances, but none the less, she totally looks pin-up and likes baseball! This is what we need! Another awesome fact is that she is from the Bay Area and has family here, so next time she’s in town we’re doing a shoot! (I’m just glad that I don’t have to be in it, it’s a lot harder than it looks!)

3. My graphic designer is going to edit some really awesome pictures of me. They’re going to be seasonal! And will be just as cool as the one which Im using now 🙂

Me!

Me!

I think that at the end of next year I will have enough to make a calendar!

I have been keeping up with the Mashable newsletters and reading some interesting articles. There is so mu out there on the I-phone, I think I might just have to get one in a few months, right now I have the AT&T Tilt, which is pretty cool, but the new I-phone sees like its better for the web (which is what I really use my phone for… lol)

OK, I am going to wrap up for now, but will be back tomorrow 🙂

Now Bebe is in my lap too!
