9:29 pm in Montauk. I’m sitting at the kitchen table with the sliding door open. The only sound outside is quiet. It’s been a while since I’ve sat and took the time to properly write on here. The past 6 months has been non-stop and when I get a moment to relax the last thing I feel like doing is open my computer. I’ve been in Montauk for almost a week now. I’m working on the new Sel Rrose opening this May. CKD is creating their custom fabric to cover the banquettes and hand painting a mural that will live in one of the many rooms of Sel Rrose Montauk. This space is going to be stunning. Nothing like this exists out here. When I lived in New York I would dream of one day working on a space in Montauk. I’m living my 27 year old self’s dream. Thankful.
There’s a lot of moving parts for CKD. It’s never ending. Having your own company is a marathon except with no finish line, just different levels. Each level requiring you to elevate yourself. It's time to elevate and I can feel it. Terrifying and both exciting. Life is a beautiful thing, and I feel very fortunate to live mine doing what I love. OK, off to bed. Good night :) x C
Hi! just a small sneak peek into what is coming next for CKD. I’m dipping my hands into the fashion world!! Stay tuned! x C
// PLANTA QUEEN, 180 Queen Street West
It’s here! CKD for Planta Queen west. This place turned out to be a vibe.
I’m doing it! CKD officially has her own youtube channel. There is SO much going for CKD right now that I thought it would be fun to take you along with me behind the scenes. Subscribe because there is more coming! Next stop Montauk New York for the new Sel Rrose.
// Planta opening/Faryl PilatesSaturday Social
Life lately has been nuts. So nuts that I completely crashed last week and slept for the majority of my days. No motivation no desire to do anything no creativity. It was nice to turn off for more than a day or two and allow myself to rest. I’m feeling back to normal and ready to start moving again. Planta Queen opens next week! Here is mural one of three that I did for them! Faryl’s bespoke print goes up next week. And I should have some more video and photos from The Saturday Social I spoke at at the beginning of this month! ALSO I may be exploring the world of YouTube… like… as a vlogger. I feel like it’s time we get a little closer. I’m really awkward in front of the camera, but there is really cool stuff going on for CKD that I feel needs to be talked about and captured! Stay tuned and subscribe to my channel now! x C
Behind the scenes
// International women’s day
What a weekend! Friday night I spent my night with these wonderful women at Colette Cafe in Holt Renfrew Yorkdale location. We spoke about fears, intention and values within a business, our best advice ever and some of our goals for 2019. I learned so much from these women. It’s so easy to get caught up in my own little CKD life I forgot how important it is to get out and meet people. Thank you for having me Colette!
