When was the last time that you did something for the very first time? Did it shake you to your core or were you as cool as a cucumber?

This is how our team's first LIVE meet and greet went down...

Last week on Sunday, we were an hour and a half late starting, then had 𝘛𝘦𝘥𝘥𝘺 𝘙𝘪𝘭𝘦𝘺 type technical difficulties when we finally began lol.... This was our first time on IG Live, both separately and together, and w are extremely thankful for the 𝐩𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 and 𝘴𝘶𝘱𝘱𝘰𝘳𝘵 of those that stuck it out during our first time out at bat.

Despite both of our being tremendously camera shy: Viewers were extremely friendly and actively participated which made the experience that much more enjoyable for all parties involved.

Over 𝟓𝟎𝟎 different accounts accessed our stream throughout its duration. Accidental clicks or not lol, every single one of you are 𝘢𝘱𝘱𝘳𝘦𝘤𝘪𝘢𝘵𝘦𝘥 more than you know!

We’re working keeping up with orders and working hard preparing for the HOME COLLECTION launch that is coming later this month. We’ll try to get back on LIVE again as soon as we are able to!

Watch the full replay here.

Sending positive vibes to you until next time!
