sheeee's baaaack

Hey hey hey, it’s me again! {and by “me” I mean, me Denie!} What did I say?? “This isn’t the last you’ve seen of me” and sure enough, I’m back again!


Although Jill might still introduce me as, “Denie, my intern” every now and then, this girl right here is moving onto bigger and better things. As of late, I may now be introduced as….drumroll, please…. "Denie, my brand manager". What does this mean you may ask?? I have no idea! Neither does Jill!


JUST KIDDING ….. kinda


Has our obsessive schedule of coffee, Indian food, watching Ruby, and Jeffree Star drama come to a halt? Absolutely not. We would never let that happen. {Actually, we’ve tried to cut back but it’s the first week and it’s not looking good for us or our wallets. Scooters lady to Jill this morning: “Aren’t you the medium iced Caramelicious half flavor girl?” Lmk if you hear of a Scooter’s Anonymous meeting anytime soon, I know a girl.}


What IS different this go-around is I’m making Jill relinquish the reins {just a tad} to give me just a liiiittle more responsibility. When I’m doing my thang you can catch me at work on a handful of things. Things like….


X brainstorming new marketing strategies

X social media curating

X explaining something to Jill to only realize she hasn’t been listening for the last 10 minutes

X content development/graphic design

X truck management

X hang out with Ruby at Jill’s house when she’s gone

X customer relations

X learning the in+outs of small business

X babysitting Jill

And the list continues to grow….

 

So yes things are basically back to normal around here but also SO different, normal on steroids - ask Jill, she’s been dying without me ;) My position isn’t the only thing that is changing around here either. hello ruby has some very exciting new ideas in the works. I can’t tell you exactly what but all I gotta say is keep a look out for some new new.


What I caaan tell you is just for reading through this entire blog, I’ll slip ya the code “DENIE” to use at checkout for 15% off your entire order. {good for all items, excluding sale}. If you want something even sweeter than that be sure to subscribe to our email list to receive all the perks of being a part of the helloruby VIP crew!


I ALMOST FORGOT… the best and biggest change from last summer is I got my very own little Ruby, well kinda. {Apparently a requirement to work here is to have a doodle and I didn't even know it??} Her name is Lucy and she is the cutest gdang GOLDENdoodle I could’ve ever dreamed of- had to specify for the sake of Rub's feelings. {ily forever Ruby}. 

Till next time,
cheers XO Denie

the things we loved this weekend.

By Jill Dudzinski

the things we loved this weekend.

the things we liked. no wait, loved, this weekend.

Omg we had an amazing weekend full of pop-ups that were FUN! I mean all pop-ups are fun but it's such a treat to have so many fun ones in a rowwwwww! 

Friday we made a stop at Hank and Ax on 129th and Maple. They remodeled their space and it's literally gorgeous. They also have new services from facials to brows so take a look on their website.

hello_ruby_hank_and_ax

 

It's so scandy & airy I can't explain. I may be stopping by on another day to just hang out cuz wow is it instagramable. I also bought a face mask called by Image Skincare -- the anti-aging hydrogel sheet mask. Your girl's almost 30, so. For $7 it's like a facial in a pouch.

Fun fact: the Crane Coffee re-opened on 129th and Maple after the accident awhile ago. They had 25% off their signature drinks so mami got herself a crane special. They are also running specials all week so go see their new drive through building  

Then Saturday--- so much fun. Had a pop-up at Zen Coffee where they opened their newest venture Zen Room. Check them out on IG.

They also were celebrating the opening and renaming of their neighborhood, Farnam Hill! Adorable!

Got these fresh blooms from Magnolia from their flower bar. They are already making my house smell great and it makes me happy!

And lastly, Sunday -- a pop-up with a favorite, lululemon. They styled me and paired with some hello ruby jewelry for the event. So. Much. Fun! Especially with our BFF, Little Mango.

    neutrals kim k would die over

    I mean we think? She likes neutrals - don’t you think it’s kinda like the line from that one movie. Oh yes, The Wedding Planner. Matthew McConaughey tells J. Lo the brown M&Ms are healthier because they have less artificial color. I feel the same for clothes? More natural, less chemicals. I’m totally kidding, but here are our favorites right now.

    our cloud short sleeve breathable sweater:

    Cloud hello ruby

     

    our ruffle ribbed off the shoulder top:

     

    we are still vibing for stripes as a neutral on this top:

    How do you style your natural items? Are you all in for natural all over or do you pair with something bright for more sass?

    styling hello ruby with lululemon

    We all know one of our favorite and quality athletic line is lululemon, so we've partnered with them to bring you a super fun pop-up collab! 

    Join us February 15th from 10-2 at Village Point for a fun day of shopping hello ruby and lululemon! We will be featured in their store with a few racks and accessories for you to shop your little heart away. I mean if your significant other didn't get you the things you ACTUALLY wanted, we got you. 

    Here is how we styled one of our FAVORITE large printed leopard distressed sweater with lulu. We just got this beaut in!

    hello_ruby_lululemon_styling

     

    Our favorite leggings are ones that are high waisted and some sort of texture on them that way it's easy to dress them up or you still have the option to wear them to barre/spin class. Oh and I can *literally* have my phone glued to my hip. These are a win and of course will last a lifetime. See more here.

    hello ruby lulu lemon

     

    After the sweater and legging were decided, we wanted to add some flare to the outfit. This Trace Back Bomber is made with military grade material -- it's lightweight, water repellent, and keeps you dry on the inside. I can see myself wearing this on a daily basis, too. 

    hello ruby lululemon omaha village point

    And all together xx a perfect HELLULU collab {Am I funny? No?}

    By Jill Dudzinski

    top ideas on 'where can ya wear'

    we are not gym rats so............ see where you can wear hello ruby's new leisure wear {{or any athleisure apparel for that matter}}

    athleisure refers to casual clothing — like yoga pants, sweat pants, and hoodies — that are designed to be worn both for exercising and for doing (almost) everything else. so what exactly IS everything else. we have ideas.

    1. head to trader joes. we do this often faking like we went to the gym and now we are getting our healthy groceries. {{$3 bottles of wine}}.
    2. go to chiptole and order two burritos. one for now and one for later.
    3. go to scooters and use all their wifi and buy a $5 latte. 
    4. walk around the gym for an hour, head to the sauna and head home.
    5. throw on leggings with a hat. it looks athletic.
    6. one word: netflix

    any other suggestions?
