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!

Las Vegas & One Fifth Ave

I know that its a strange title but I just finished reading “One Fifth Ave” by Candace Bushnell and I had to mention it!

This was Candace’s 1st book that I happen to read. I know that she is the one who started the “Sex & The City” movement and is also responsible for the new TV hit series “Lipstick Jungle” (which I LOVE), but this book was quiet different. It has so many diferent characters (Annalisa and Lola are some of my favorite) and stories all going on at once, but at the end they all come together into a wonderful ending! I also thought that it was very explicit and graphic (which is not a bad thing 😉 Im pretty sure that they will make this into a movie in the next few years, and I highly recomend reading it if you have a chance, it’s really entertaining!

Before I move on to Vegas I want to mention that I just received some sample wireframes for the Baseball Beauties website, and I was OVERWHELMED when I opened them (only 4 pages so far). It is really hard to figure out what is going to work well and what isn’t….. You usually have to play around and use a website for sometime to see if all the navigation buttons are where they should be and are easy to use. SO, with that said I will have to see what other people think about the wireframes, one person can’t possibly figure it out. From my first impression I thought that they looked pretty decent, a mix between Facebook and MySpace, but much more simple… This is the only update that I have so far for the website. Amy has been making progress and finding some whole sellers that we can use to buy our merchandise from, and will be attending their expo in March in none other than VEGAS! It will be my 9th time here… Wo Hoooo!!!

Las Vegas! The city of lights… Well, I haven’t really seen many lights. With our economy being the way it is right now, the town is pretty dead, its at half of it’s usual capacity and the numbers are going down 😦 Not the fun Vegas I remember from 2 years ago. But things will turn around sooner or later. The great thing about it is, the prices are falling and you can score some killer deals on hotel rooms and other accommodations. As far as my stay goes, it could be better, my poor bf is covered head to toe with POISON IVY! It is so bad that we are sleeping in different beds like an old married couple who don’t even sleep in the same bed anymore, I never thought that it would come to this so fast in our relationship… LOL But I don’t want to get Poison Ivy so I rather deal with it this way, then be miserable as well… This time around, this trip has been anything but sexy, sigh…… It could always be worse! On the bright side, tomorrow night we’re going to see “Love” the Beatles show at the Mirage 🙂
