Lulu’s Cupcakes

I finally made it to Lulu’s Cupcakes a few weeks ago, and I am so happy that I did! Not only do they have the best cupcakes, but I had a delicious sandwich to boot. Lulu is located in Elk Grove, California (about 20 minutes south of Sacramento) in the heart of Old Town Elk Grove.  They’ve been open a little less than a year, with the owner being a recent high school graduate.  I only wish it’d  been around while I was in high school, and college…I could have envisioned myself studying for hours while eating red velvet cupcake after red velvet cupcake.

That’s Not My Name……Giveaway!

Maybe there’s a reason this song has been in my head for the last week or more? For those of you who don’t know, I’m looking to create a website with:

  • my photos
  • links for locals to purchase bouquets
  • etsy
  • twitter
  • and my new typepad blog

This may come as a surprise to you, but I have grown tired of dolce chic. It’s not that I’m tired of what I do, because I absolutely love it….but I don’t feel as formal as the name sounds. I spent yesterday on domain websites, I looked up dolcechic.com, and come to find out it’s an escort site. My first and last name.com actually belongs to a prostitute, and just about anything I’ve come up with belongs to someone in this industry. I refuse to take this as a sign, I’m a nice Catholic girl, I promise! I do know that everything in my life is serious, and I’m tired of it! I would like a sophisticated name, that is fun, laid back, and cool. When I think of things I like they’re as follows:

  • relaxing
  • tanning
  • photography
  • my home state, California
  • r-e-s-p-e-c-t
  • laughter
  • Glamour
  • uggs, and flip flops
  • my distressed True Religion jeans
  • Everything I have has gold detail (I just noticed as I took a gander at my handbags)
  • Hollywood regency
  • crown moulding
  • Anti-clutter!
  • Pretty chandeliers
  • bamboo chandeliers, and 40’s glamour
  • I’m inspired by quotes…as if you didn’t know
  • my doggie lucy goosie baby floosie
  • sports- especially chucky b, derek jeter, and brett favre
  • my long hair. I used to have my hair cut in an A-line, it was very chic, but I am too lazy to do it…so the easy breezy long hair stays.
  • Vintage turquoise jewelry…..the bigger the better!
  • Listening to the ocean
  • black with gold detail. For instance my black Isabella Fiore handbag with gold studs.
  • Black frames with white matting
  • Gold frames with white matting
  • Elephants
  • Sarcasm…it’s a virtue!
  • My mommy and grandmama

One of my etsy teammates came up with “dolcerose”, I like it but it still seems too formal. I came up with “californiacandi”. I really like that, I checked out C&C California’s website, and it seemed fun, and relaxing. I don’t know what to do? I’m lost, and the added stress of not getting anything done is getting to me! I want to get started with my website, and not having a domain is a struggle. With this being said, I am leaving it up to- – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

YOU!

I have decided that I will be giving away one of my prints to the person who picks my new name. I am not putting a deadline on this as I am waiting for the right name!

In the end–you pick the photo in my shop, or if you’ve seen it on flickr, and it’s not in my shop….let me know and I will add it for you!

Paper & Ink Studio

As many of you know, I’m looking to open my photography shop soon. When I opened my first shop, I went into it without thinking, and have regretted that. This time around I’m more prepared, and going in with both eyes and ears open! I never ordered business cards for my knit goods, as I never saw anything that really caught my eye, and was in my price range. Well, that was until Saturday evening when stumbled on Paper & Ink Studio’s etsy page. This shop makes me wish I had a multitude of shops where I could order cards like they’re going out of style!!! The best part about their business cards is they’re double sided and you can change the colors if you so choose. It doesn’t get much better than this! I love them all, but have a design I’m leaning towards. Can you guess which ones they are? 

Besides business cards, Paper & Ink Studio are right up our alley, as they offer chic stationery and beautiful invitations. This shop is too gorgeous to pass up!!!
