Pelhuaz Anniversary Celebration - IT'S TODAY!

So it's been a year since I started this adventure called Pelhuaz. IT's MY ANNIVERSARY... Wujuuuu! So let's Party!!!!!! 

Today is my turn to answer the fun interview questions. Today is a National Holiday so let's just add another reason to celebrate, shall we?

You had see me before, but just in case you forgot my face -this is me... All hair, glasses, and for two more months -belly.

Here are my answers to the weekly interview that I made to all my friends. It's about time that I did this!

Pelhuaz: What's your name?
Zei: Zeide but I go as Zei

Pelhuaz: Describe yourself in 5 words?
Zei: Orange, Tangled, Sarcastic, Momma & Happy

Pelhuaz: If you could sing one song on American Idol or any other TV Show, what would it be?
Zei: No rain by Blind Melons or Roam from The B52.

Pelhuaz: If you were on an island and could only bring 3 things, what would you bring?
Zei: My Surface with Internet, my knife, and a Hot Air Balloon - I can't stand being alone, so I need to get back to my family - ASAP. Using the Surface as GPS, I'll get there in no time.

Pelhuaz: If we came to your house for dinner, what would you prepare for us?
Zei: I do a killer Quesadilla, but probably will do a local menu. Something like a Mofongo con Pollo a la Plancha y ensalada verde and the local beer - Medalla! (Mashed Plantains with Grilled Chicken and Green Salad) Yummy!

And in the evening, I'll prepare you a Kick-Ass Mojito with mint, black sugar, lemon juice and Bacardi (our local rum). Did I catch your attention? Yeah... I think I did... :D

Pelhuaz: If you were a Star Trek® [or Star Wars®] character, which one would it be?
Zei: From Star Trek, I'll be Uhura - the Communications Chief Officer. From Star Wars, I'll be Chewi. Have you seen my hair? :D Ohh and take a look at my T-Shirt - is him!

Pelhuaz: What is the last book you read?
Zei: Amor, curiosidad, prozac y dudas by Lucia Etxebarria. I loved it and was the reason I started writing in the first place.

Pelhuaz: What's your superpower?
Zei: My hair, as Medusa. 

Pelhuaz: Who do you consider your sidekick?
Zei: My hubby. He is and always be my partner in crime... But more than Super Heroes, we'll be Villains. :D

Pelhuaz: Tell us about your Small Business…Why did you decide to open Pelhuaz?
Zei: I always loved making crafts but most of all jewelry. I always wear my creations, and some friends asked me to do things for them. I give it a thought and took a leap of faith and created Pelhuaz by Red. At the beginning was only the name but after it got a little serious, and after researching what platform will do the trick, I decided to open my Storenvy Shop.  

Pelhuaz: What is your favorite item available at Pelhuaz? Provide a pic.
Zei: My long necklaces. I love the boho look they gave to any piece of clothing.

Pelhuaz: What do you wish you had known before you started?
Zei: That photos are the most important part of the store front.

Pelhuaz: When is your Store Anniversary?
Zei: TODAY! Cuajajajajaj!

Pelhuaz: Imagine that I’m planning to open Pelhuaz, and I don’t know a thing about managing a Small Business, what will be your best advice?
Zei: If I need to give an advice to the 1 year ago Zei, I would have to say that it takes time. "Girl, you need to focus on making your brand, making a strong backbone, and look for a Community that support you." At the beginning, I interacted with few nasty groups until I found "My people". :D And you know who you are! <3
