🌴TUT INSTA ROUND UP-OCTOBER 🍂🍂

SHOP–  INSTAGRAM – FACEBOOK 

Hey Tigers!!

October was quite a special month. Lots of  delightful happenings took place, which I posted on Instagram . I thought I would post here a round up of some of the happenings from the last four weeks.

WEEK 1

TUT ‘Bathsheba’ earrings were the the first official product posted to our New Insta Shop on the gram. Both a nerve racking and exciting moment as I had been working on a way to bring a streamline TUT shopping experience to Instagram for some time.  Check out the Insta shop, this is the hashtag– #InstaShop🌴tut 

Well as you know I celebrated my birthday…which was a seriously lovely day by the way. I talked about  my  touching  birthday gift from my little sister ( and posted a pic of it) . I spent the day in the excitingly bustling, cultural city of Birmingham. I got dressed up with ‘ My Island’ earrings and my bunny ears. I also posted these earring to our new Insta shop . You can read all about my birthday , just click here .

WEEK 2

This week featured all of the different styles in the Butterfly Collection. Here are Sun Splash, Blu and Neon . These colours excite me I can tell you. 🙂

I posted about TUT Mini Blooms Hair clips. These little guys are seriously 😍 cute.  When I made the blooms I didn’t know that they would become a hair accessory. They were so satisfying to crochet. The hard part was figuring out  how to attach them to a snap clip. To get a closer look at there little darlings  click here!!

For some time product listing has been dominating most of my time in the studio. In this post I talked again about my utter hatred for product listing….😠 but you already know of my hatred  lol …but how, I did  eventually complete  listing all  21 TUT  Giclèe Wall Art Prints to the Etsy Store . Can I get a hoooorahh!!!

‘Proud Swan’ is one of my fav illustrations in the #TUTMission100 series .  The colours really set create a mood.  I talked about why it   creates a peacefulL energy …. you can  find out why here .  Proud Swan is also a great piece as a place to start for colour  inspiration for home accessories .  To view all the TUT wall art  prints click here! While you’re there, make sure to give a ❤️ to your favorite one and Pin your favs to Pintrest.

WEEK 3

This week more butterflies, in particular ”Neon Butterfly” . Every  earring design has a choice of different silver hooks and metal combos which are excellent for Peeps with sensitive lobes. Or if you fancy a treating yourself to something a little bit more fancy.  I talked about ways to avoid painful screaming ears by understanding what your skin needs .

Ok so lets talk weather. This year London was blessed with an  October which brought some kick ass weather. Sooooo lovely and warm  👐 . Probably not a good sign ( global warming wise) but I sure enjoyed it

However, nearing the last couple weeks, whilst still quite warm, the days got  gloomy and windy. On one particular day  I had to leave the studio to run a few errands, but outside was looking a bit dull. I knew it was defo time to bust out my cute winter accessories  but I wasn’t sure how accessorize so I would look supa cute, not mess up my hair and keep my kool on such a warm day??????

Well you can read about my fashion dilemma here.  🙂 I did however  eventually opt for  my own  Bloomin Lovely head warmer. It’s supa cozy.  Perfect choice. Whenever I put it on, I feel like a cute 1920’s Flapper Girl 🙂  There are only two of these head warmers in the whole world. However, there is only one available right here because the other one I decided to keep for myself.  🙂

WEEK 4

Very happy that all the prints can finally be seen in the store I posted a pick of ”Her Chattel”. The delicate colours in this illustration are…well blissful. Very subtle golds, reds, blues…nice man…calming . I shared suggestions on the   best place  to hang this artwork for creating a nostalgic , uplifting vibe .

Hiya Tigers!!

For almost a year I left you Tigers without an online shop from where to snap up wall art prints.

I know…sad times. 😦

Now, get ready to dry up those tears.

I’ve good news.

I’m happy to announce,  🌴The Urban Tiger – Etsy Shop  has re-opened for business!

Hope reading that made you smile 🙂

#REAL TALK

It took your girl daaaaays to list items in the shop. Days and days arhhhhhg!  😦

 

    AS SEEN ON INSTAGRAM- ‘CARIBBEAN BLUE’ RIGHT HERE!

#TUTMISSION100 DAY 15 CARIBBEAN BLUE- WATER COLOUR, INDIAN INK, GOLD INK SPLASHES

The main reason being,  once I began rolling out daily posts of the 100 mini illustrations / paintings  from #TUTMission100 on INSTAGRAM   Peeps started following along, leaving positive comments and ♥.

Which I really appreciated. So I decided to include more pieces from this series to the collection in the shop.

‘CARIBBEAN BLUE’ A2 GICLÈE WALL ART PRINT

Some how forgetting how tedious this job was in 2016 when I  sat listing products to the old web shop ,  I once again failed to anticipate, that including product  listings, would mean more time consuming work….for me!

As Seen On INSTAGRAM – ‘PROUD SWAN’ used as a background art for  our London Fashion Week Post here!

DAY 22 ‘PROUD SWAN’ – A3 GICLÈE PRINT

 

However, once I told myself to relaaaax  and to break down listings into small chunks each day, I found a flow and it got easier, 🙂 After 2 weeks of editing, listing and writing  descriptions I was done and very happy. There are now 21 wall art prints in total available .

Featured in our Catwalk Colour Inspiration series – ‘CARRYING SUGAR CANE- For Home Accessories #4 Pale Dogwood Pink here!

DAY 40 ‘CARRYING SUGAR CANE’ A2 GICLÈE WALL ART PRINT

The shop is looking pretty kool Tigers!!

Sorry guys if you turned up Seven Sisters for 🌴The Urban Tiger Pop Up Shop yesterday and didn’t see us. We got RAINED OUT!!! We are sooo bummed 😦 it wasn’t possible to go ahead with it. The rain started falling as we left to make our way to the venue.

It was not letting up. Not wanting stock or displays to be ruined by the rain,  my sister O-Jay , and I had no choice but to turn back home, put the whole experience down to fate and take this really sad photo of ourselves.

PREPPING FOR 🌴TUT JULY POP UP SHOP ( WITH EASE)

Subscribe to The Urban Tiger Newsletter by Email

Subscribe in a reader

  INSTAGRAM – FACEBOOK 

Hola Tigers!!!

With less than two weeks to go until 🌴TUT Pop Up Shop sets up in Tottenham N.15 , I’ve  began preparing myself to tackle all the different parts that need to be organised (when running an offline shop) , in order for me to feel relaxed on the day +  for the evening to run smoothly. Yeap, I put my feeling at ease before everything else.  Experience has taught me, this way round  is a far better practice for doing events. In the past I’ve spent far to much time on all shop related tasks. Only after I had completed all the jobs, would I sit down, usually some time in the early hours of the same days event, only then would I turn my attention to myself…..because I’m only the bloody Shop Seller! Not that important right?

No TUT is my baby, I must stand aside until she is taken care of.

Fast forward , many days latter. Early hours of the morning- Day of the event.

My Internal dialogue;

”Ok Shan…you did it, accomplished every detail, just before deadline cometh. You are awesome girl. Ok.. clock says, ooh really its 2.30 am? Wow… event is in er ( X amount  of hours) ,  I am overtired…. worked right through dinner….but made that dead line. Yasss! Ok belly I hear you, bed is looking good too though? Ooh let me stay up for another 10 mins coz now that I’m done with TUT stuff I probably should give some thinking time to what I may need to get through the event.  Well….food seems important.  Should I prepare a pack lunch, buy something? Hmmm  don’t think I  actually put aside any financial  provisions for food for me? Will I need to take a break during the day….if so when…who will take over? You know what, every-thing kool, I made deadline, the rest will take care of it’s self.”

Shocked Face And Action Emoji Pt 2 a better time. then, lillian, chase ...

Like I said, I’ve turned this around. Full 360.  My needs first. TUT is only as strong as I. Don’t praise me for this kinda enlightened mindset Tiger!  Coz this lesson has taken me a looooooong time to understand, appreciate, and respect. Funny, because putting health before business is what I aggressively advocate to all my business buddies.

They say doctors make the worst patients 🙂

Now, I reverse engineer this shit. Note book in hand, I think about my chief initiative- me achieving  having a relatively stress free day, me staying hydrated and maintaining ‘ happiness’ right up until the close of business. Working backwards to that goal I begin my list of preparation tasks with…

How long realistically,  am I physically able to run a TUT  shop for the day,  before it becomes to tiring mentally, or before my back pain makes things to difficult for me to concentrate?

#REALTALK  That’s why the Pop Up Shops run no longer than 4 hours long. Long enough before my belly starts to rumble, before my light snacks run out out, and my body gets weary.

Being kind to myself, 1st,  takes sooooo much work….but when I see the outcome of my efforts, it motivates me to keep up me training boo 🙂

With a few Pop Up Shops behind me now…

…nerves + anxiety  don’t seem to wanna be friends with me anymore.

My major tasks so far have been, getting myself motivated to retrieve +unpack  the  Tesco bag with all  the inventory I brought to the previous Pop Up in June. After the June Shop, I arrived home shattered and placed  the bag of items so far away from me in the corner of the studio out of sheer mental and physical  exhaustion. Needed to decompress big time from that event as I worked my buns of to get ready for that day.

So my list of priorities will include: tackling the accessories and earrings, first, making sure none were damaged in transit. Clean up any which became dirty whilst being on display outside on that windy bastard of a day. :0 . Check inventory levels are sufficient, if not, get stock down from my new storage unit, replenish, note down what needs tags. Print new tags, cut out tags. Maybe take the opportunity to take a few shots for Instagram +  for upcoming  blog posts, as I have new 🌴TUT developments in the pipe line as well as some exciting news to reveal soon…. stay tuned…

Then I’ll take a brain  break  by swapping my attention with jewellery + hair accessories with art print inventory. Concentrating one thing for two long gets kinda boring for me.

Well Tiger, now you’ve read what this Beautifully Busy Bitch 🙂 will be up to for the next few day.

Now it’s your turn….

Tell me, what has been keeping you busy this month? Are you running yourself ragged, failing to be kind to yourself, by not placing your needs above reaching deadline?

Please reply,  because together we might just be able to bring you some overdue ease and much needed peace on this subject. Now wouldn’t that feel nice baby  🙂
