Hi! We are Ethan and Niamh and we are terrible at keeping up with our social media 👋🏻 We try to strike a balance between posting our work/building a little community here and living our life off screen/not being consumed by apps, but so often tend to abandon social media all together for weeks at a time...not a good strategy for building a business or making new friends or sharing our work. So here’s our question for our small business friends out there: how do you work out a healthy balance between social media and real life? Especially if you skew towards the side of not using social media *enough* (a rare problem to have, maybe?). Scheduled posts, an editorial calendar, just winging it? We’d love to know. // 📷: photo of us was taken by the lovely @valokuvaajatina during the #roadieworkshop last month!
Just gotta pause for a moment and give massive thanks to my community of people far and wide who bring it hard with ongoing love and support. Who go all in with you to bring an idea to life, who go above and beyond to lend a hand when you need some extra help, and who are always, always cheering for you from the sidelines of life as you face down the challenges and opportunities that come your way. To my people, you know who you are, thank you. Figuring out small business life, or simply human life in general, is no easy feat and I would be nothing if not for my community.
Now, while I go wipe the mist out of my eyes, please enjoy this beautiful photo of our Rainforest Bath Salts, lovingly embraced in a hand-turned birch bowl made by @zachlaperriere, captured by the talented @asia.dore; a gorgeous visual product of some real collaborative community 💖
With the smoke in the horizon, California is suffering. Today I spent the morning at a farm in Anaheim supporting @istandwithmypack where they evacuated a lot of farm animals from Malibu. From the 400 pound turtles, to the 50 guinea pigs, so many have and will be impacted by this blaze. Take time during your days to take a second and do something for someone. Our world more than ever needs this. ❤️🌎
Well, the stars aligned last minute and I’ll be taking off on a 2,800 mile road trip across the USA on Friday night with my brother @dankellystayshome .
This will be my fifth cross-county road trip, and it never gets old. Hoping to see some new sights along the way and to take a few photos.
Should be a hell of a trip. Any recommendations for what to see/where to visit are appreciated 🤙
deu uma saudadinha dessa terra
terra de cachoeiras, mata bonita, natureza viva
de gente fina e comida boa
da feira orgânica
eu sou muito a mata
e a mata é muito eu
chapada, tu mora no meu coração
mal posso esperar pra voltar pra ti então
Wildlife spotting this past weekend in Wilson’s prom. We got up close and personal to my favorite Australian marsupial.. the Wombat! 😍. Wilson’s prom is about 3 hours south of Melbourne, has gorgeous white sandy beaches, dramatic coastlines and mountains. And most importantly of all, wildlife is everywhere! We saw dozens of Kangaroos, swamp wallabies, wombats and emus! #roadtripaustralia#traveloz#wildlifephotography
En la hora del té!!🐇 ~Cansada y corriendo contra el tiempo. Pensando que no llegaría. Alice entendió que todos seguían esperándola.🎩 Que la hora del té siempre es la hora del té.💕
El tiempo en los sueños puede de ser un poco más raro.🔹🔹🔹
On one hand I want time to speed up because I can’t wait to meet our little monster (and the curiosity is next level), on the other hand time is going way too fast.
This time next month we’ll be parents... 🥰⏳💘
Is it the shape? Is it the substance? The wind? Colors and smells? A combination perhaps of all these things; why are we so drawn to these eruptive places on the earths surface. Around the globe, mountains continually draw us in. Something in our evolution imprinted this weird desire deep in our dna. I don’t have an answer, but these places seem to hold the keys to the allure of the planet.
Is it just me or do seventies typography colours give you major styling inspo? Either way - a great chance to romanticise the decade and dream up a tonal theme for future arrangements 🌹 photo via pinterest #surprisesurprise
