It's a "Sari"-Situation


In case you were curious, Aish's reaction inspired the "OMG Becky, Look at her BLOUSE" post series here on The Sweet Side of Life Blog. Because, I know all you ladies

6 Things You Didn't Know About Chynni (that will blow your mind):

1. Machine Washable

Don't let dry cleaning be the reason you can't wear your favorite sari.

Chynni blouses, petticoats AND saris are all machine washable. Throw it (gently, of course) in a delicate cycle and let them air dry. This means, Chynni is not only easy to wear, but also easy to manage.


2. Comfortable Petticoats

In the age of elastic, spandex, and all things stretchy, why are petticoats still the same?

Available in S-M-L sizes, Chynni petticoats are ready to keep you going all day. The elasticized waistband is not just more comfortable to wear for hours, but stays snug as well. Added bonus: there's a hidden drawstring at the waist if it you like it a little tighter.

I really can't contain my excitement at some of the projects planned for this month. Mind you, these are marketing projects, but nevertheless they're meant to feed the soul. Since I'm terrible at keeping secrets I'll give you some hints. These are the titles of two video projects in the pipeline:

1. "How to drape a sari…by taking it off?"

2. "You won't believe what she did in a Chynni sari!"

I know, you have questions. That's the point. Now you can simmer in anxious misery while I put on my "Make-It-Happen-Officer" hat to get these babies going.

My "Make-It-Happen" Officer hat just happens to be a straw sombrero. #igotitfrommymomma

Chynni's Live on Kickstarter. Here I go, jumping off a digital cliff...

Frankly, I've got knots and butterflies in my stomach, because I've been preparing for this Kickstarter launch day for so long. Finally pushing the green button, is probably like jumping off a cliff. You think you're a little crazy, and you wonder what's gonna happen. But, in that moment when you remember you have a parachute, you realize this was all meant to be. And of course, that you will live through the experience.

  How is it possible to feel that this year has flown by and dragged on at the same time? I’ll save the deep philosophical conversation about time for later, which my hubby LOVES to talk about (courtesy of “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle). Thanks I have to ask all kinds of questions…
  I can’t believe it was almost 4 months ago when a team of very special and passionate friends managed to pull off an incredibly collaborative photoshoot. Its such an exhilarating feeling to see an operation like that come to life for the first time. The photos below are but a drop in the bucket of moments we caught that day, but I just had to share some new ones. 
  Muchos muchos gracias to all you special peeps below! We all couldn’t have done this without each other =D

FLASHBACK Friday - After Ever After BTS

The wedding commences in all its pomp and flair. Rose petals are strewn across the aisle as the beloved couple makes their way through. The air is filled with…LUST?!?!?! Yea that's right. This is a behind closed doors recollection of the guests, not the newlyweds. The couple might have their happy ending, but these three women have a happy ending of their own. Lust is in the air.
