littleashleigh The weekend was a little bit of everything and nothing; weird, good, not fabulous but not terrible... Feeling happy *and* homesick. Over the processes but excited about possibilities. Grateful to be in a lively city, and for these mountains that remind me of Tennessee. (And this view from our roof!) Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead. 6d

littleashleigh Do you guys follow my sweet friend @101thingsilove? We go back to when our only babies were our blogspot hosted blogs(!). (My how much has changed!) She was one of my first IRL blogging buddies which, lucky for me, turned in to a long term friendship. Her fashion blog and colorful Instagram aren't just pretty, she's an inspiring entrepreneur who aside from killer style often shares motivating posts, like her Fearless Friday feature, which I'm honored to be interviewed on today. Within, I'm sharing some startup scoop for both @fosterieshop and @harwellandnell, plus a few fun things as well, like my latest musical obsession (hint: it's totally dorky!) Head to the link in my profile to check it out. You'll surely become addicted to her site! 1w

littleashleigh Shortest version of a long story I could come up with... Sooo, I launched a new line today. NBD. Just kidding. Huge deal!
There's a popular getting-to-know-you question I think about from time to time - "What's something you've always wanted to do but haven't done it, and why?" *This* is that something.

A few years ago I worked with a designer to sketch a clutch concept and priced out samples and production. The quotes and commitment were somewhat shocking so it got placed in my "Someday" folder.

Flash forward to our current situation and it turns out that once you're completely outside your comfort zone you've got nothing to lose by trying... So I dug out my sketch. We asked around; I found the best leather suppliers in town and a local manufacturer. I've pounded pavement, Google translate in one hand, and with the other hand picked every element from the leather and fabric, to the zippers and clips. Literally everything. And I've loved and hated it.
Though the opportunities and capabilities here in Colombia have been a blessing, this didn't come easy. There have been setbacks and start overs. Unusable samples, language barriers on the daily. 8:00am meetings on Saturday morning with a baby strapped in the carrier trying to wrap things up. And though there hasn't been any blood yet, there have definitely been sweat and tears.
But the best part of the story is the story.... Who are Harwell & Nell?

They're peas and carrots. Wine and chocolate. Bonnie Harwell and Mary Nell, two people I was honored to call grandparents. And their 'opposites attract' love story is ultimately what inspired these designs.
Harwell: A true Dandy, “something excellent in its class.”
Nell: A sassy, spitfire always up for a laugh.

It's classy *and* sassy. Elegance with an edge.
The first small batch set has already arrived in the US and is ready for shipping. If you want to get your hands one, I'm kicking things off at the Grand Opening with $15 off all purchases using promo code: HELLOHN

Alright, wrapping it up and getting on to biz... HN is open NOW! Check it out! xo

littleashleigh Spent a rainy day in Guatape today. The gray skies were still no match for all the colors. Loved what we saw of this cute little town and wish the downpours would have eased up for more exploring. Next time... 3w
