Hi Loves, I hope you all are having a great week! I am really happy because I received notification that my trademark application with the USTPO has been approved and is in its final stages! This means I will be the official registered trademark owner of ‘B.A.D. Beautiful, Authentic & Determined’ very soon! I always knew in the back of my mind that I needed to protect myself, but if I am being honest it wasn’t until I found myself dealing with my FIRST infringement issue that I kicked it into high gear and dropped a huge chunk of money to protect what I have worked so hard to create. It’s something that I highly recommend to anyone with a unique idea, name or brand and are looking to really invest in it for the long haul. If you need help or have questions about the trademark filing process you can always reach out to me!
Here are this weeks links I am loving:
I love hearing/reading peoples success stories because it motivates and inspires me to push forward with my own dreams. Preetma Singh went from being a lawyer to a fashion editor because she realized her real passion and made the effort to have it become her reality. That’s B.A.D-ASS. (via The Cut)
I will keep it real; I don’t know much about champagne except that I enjoy drinking it. However, thanks to this ‘Champagne Basics’ guide I now know it doesn’t have to be expensive to be good. I will be sure to reference this post the next time I need to buy a bottle of bubbly. (via Cupcakes & Cashmere)
