It feels like an eternity since I last blogged or had the time to even consider it. Mr Primp & Style just finished his postgraduate which has been going on for a year. It’s great to have him back, and now I can hand over the boys for extended periods of time while I shop for the store and do all the other things like writing this that I have been unable to do.
Slowly I feel the store is really coming together. I’m on my second or third run of big orders from suppliers, I’ve started to make inroads into the unbelievable array or ‘digital influencers’ and have featured on YStyle, Lustrous.ie and Cheryl Reilly Image Consultant. I choose who I send merchandise to carefully, I stalk them for ages and see if they are representative of my brand and the style of the store. All that stalking on Instagram has given rise to a really sharp pain in my scrolling hand, I kid you not. I’m blaming it on lifting the boys, but the thought did occur to me. Of course maybe I’m just getting old and the cold is getting to me.
I also managed to bring Primp & Style on the road and we had our first outing at Keane on Style with the very lovely and very stylish Lorraine Keane. It was a great experience and it was nice for people to see the quality of the products up close. Doing events like this is definitely something that I am keen (see what I did there?!) to do more of, especially since I shelled out for a huge sign!
I left the boys with my husband who had ‘the best day’, there was ‘no crying or whinging’ and informed me ‘they were really excellent’ which smarted a little if I’m honest! I’m constantly whinging about how whingy they are at times. Of course, no washing was done, no messages either, there were toys everywhere and dinner had been pre prepared by yours truly so I did feel somewhat better upon that realisation. Truthfully it felt great to leave it all behind and hang out with my sister at a girlie event, just a shame I was driving….maybe next time I’ll stay at the venue overnight!
I have plenty of new stock arriving in the coming weeks which I am very excited about it. New everything for me.
I’m just winding down after a lovely Mother’s day, I’m ready to cuddle up in a blanket scarf and watch House of Cards!
