The Office

Happy Monday, loves!  We wanted to give you a little peek into our worlds today :)  We all live in different parts of the country, we have different tastes, different styles, and of course, different offices.  So, just for fun, we figured we'd show you how our work space looks on a daily basis - OK, maybe we tidied up a bit for these pics, but none-the-less, you get a visual of how our daily life looks in our different Cayetano Legacy offices.

Karen, who lives in Atlanta - handles all of the creative and production aspects of the business so you'll find tons of jewelry samples, colored pencils, and magazines laying around.

Gail, who lives in Los Angeles - handles all of the marketing and PR for the company so you'll find her office right in the heart of Los Angeles with her plush purple chairs ready to meet potential clients, her business books and her motivational quotes framed for the world to see what she is about.

Christine, who lives in New Jersey - handles all of the operations which includes managing our CLC inventory - so you can say her office is literally swimming in jewels, aka - "The Treasure Chest." She's an avid collector of designer coffee table books and her little shih-tzu, Sumo, oversees her to make sure she doesn't take any of the jewelry out of inventory for her own personal use.  :)

{Chicago} The Windy City

A fun post by our Chicago Creative Strategist, Raquel, on her love for The Windy City.

"The other day I set up our pop-up shop at one of my favorite boutiques in Chicago, Cerato Boutique, located in the Southport Corridor of Lakeview, the neighborhood in which I live. Owner, Tracey Glibowski has a great sense of style and fills her fresh, modern boutique with local design talent and independent labels. Be sure to stop in and catch our pieces that will be displayed until August 20th.

The tree lined streets of the Southport Corridor is home to many great boutiques, bars and restaurants. One of my favorite places to brunch is Southport Grocery and Cafe. 

Everything here is fresh and made-from-scratch, it's no wonder there's a wait list on the weekends, especially to sit on their patio. They also sell locally produced fine food groceries. I love ending my meal with their salted caramel ice cream.

Just around the corner of Southport is Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs. 

The Wrigleyville area during game days can be a lot of fun but only if I'm participating. Otherwise, I try to avoid the crowds at the over 35 bars there where it's acceptable to act like you're in your college glory days. 

Down the street from Wrigley Field is Sheffield's Chicago, where my friends and I enjoy spending our down time. 

This laid back spot features a beer garden, over 50 beers on tap, 18 hour smoked BBQ, and 3 indoor bars with different vibes in each room. You can find me on a random tuesday sporting a baseball cap in the corner, or a saturday dressed in my favorite outfit of the season requesting my favorite songs.

Heading towards the lake in Lakeview, you will run into Boystown, where one of the largest Pride Parades in the nation happens every year here. 

This year around 850,000 people attended this event in all their glittery, colorful, costume glory! Once in a while you might find me dancing the night away at a LGBT bar with friends who live in this area!

Finally, one of my ultimate favorite places to go in Lakeview is Belmont Harbor on Lake Michigan. 

I am lucky to have amazing, fun friends (I actually met a few years back at a Cubs game!) who own a boat that's docked here. There's nothing like being on the water surrounded by close friends and sky scrapers. These are just a few of the many reasons why I love living in Chicago."

{How To} Braid Bun

One of our fun and fabulous Creative Strategists - Jess - who represents the Philly region had the best no fuss hairstyle last week.  She said it was so easy she even shared a tutorial for all of us!!!  Love her!

The Braid Bun, once perfected, can be done in under 1 minute!  It's easy, chic and perfect for keeping the hair off your neck in the Summer heat! Enjoy!!

What you'll need: A hair tie.  That's it!

Step 1: Braid your hair to the very ends.  Pinch the end of your braid to avoid any loosening.

Step 2: Keep the braid pinched and begin wrapping it counter-clockwise (right-handed) or clockwise (left-handed) as you would a traditional bun.

Step 3: Once it feels secure and the braid is wrapped into a bun, tuck the pinched pieces of hair into the bun, hold the bun in place and use a hair tie to secure it.  Make sure the hair tie holds down the ends of your hair or the braid bun will fall out.

Step 4: Enjoy the compliments on your adorable new 'do!
