Ashley Alexiss walks the runway during the 2019 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Runway Show During Miami Swim Week.

Ashley Alexiss heated up her Instagram feed with a sizzling new bikini shot on Friday, flaunting her spectacular curves on the beach at twilight. The blond bombshell looked every inch the siren as she posed right on the water’s edge, her soaked locks suggesting she had just emerged from the sea. She was standing on the wet sand with one leg in front of the other, teasing fans as she grasped the sides of her skimpy swimsuit and sneaked her fingers underneath the clingy fabric.

Sat Aug 22 '20 Announcement from Prepd Skillet - The Ultimate Pan
Publisher:  Indiegogo: Announcements
Saturday, 22 August 2020 06:49

Hi Everyone,

 

Production is complete! All skillets have been cast, polished, hand-finished, and meticulously seasoned - ready for a lifetime of use. It has been a difficult few months navigating the challenges of the pandemic, but we are really excited to reach this important milestone and be one step closer to getting the skillets into your hands. We’ve just tested more of the production samples and they are fantastic!

 

 

What happens next?

 

This week we made the freight bookings to send the skillets to the international warehouses. Unfortunately due to COVID freight delays, the earliest ship date we were able to secure is on September 5.

 

From there, the skillets should arrive in each of the international distribution centers by September 30. As soon as the skillets arrive at the distribution centers, each order will be packed, labeled, and sent to you. At this time we will also share your tracking information and we expect that everyone will have their skillets in hand by mid-October.

 

Will I need to pay any customs charges?

 

Because we are using international warehouses we will be paying all import fees plus taxes and duties for all countries so there should be no additional costs or customs charges on your side.

Note #2: USA backers joining between now and the close of the InDemand campaign, your order will be shipped within one week of the first batch of shipments being sent out. We will share a deadline for completing your BackerKit survey soon.

 

Thank you so much for your support and patience throughout. We are really looking forward to getting your skillets to you and we promise it will be worth the wait.

 

Best,

 

Will and Chris
