Miami City Guide

Last week Jasper, Jane our photographer, and I headed down to Miami for Art Week 2018. I didn’t have much of a grasp of the city other than Vice, Will Smith, and Gianni Versace–it always seemed so foreign to me as someone from a drastically different beach town on the opposite side of the country. You know what I learned? It’s a magical glistening oasis of art, frolics, and beautiful people that somehow doesn’t feel real. It’s like a playground for adults. And yet, somehow, also how life should be: a perfect 75 degrees with always something to do.

Though the purpose of our trip was for art and thus my mind was solely focused on it, I was still surprised at how much there was to see all around. It’s everywhere! On walls, on the side of the street, signs, architecture, sidewalks, you name it. And our partner for the trip, Uber was our jumping off point to connect us to all the right spots in just 48 hours!

Holiday Activity Book

Holiday Activity BookA few weeks ago we were able to attend a super fun Holiday event held by Mixbook. Mixbook creates amazing personalized photo products including beautiful books and cards. Trust me when I say they went above and beyond on the holiday decor at this event! We’re taking a team of unicorn balloons leading Santa’s sleigh! It was such a fun time and the cherry on top was seeing our new Holiday Activity book in action! We designed an interactive workbook for kids and adults alike to fill up with all the holiday cheer! It consists of ugly sweater and ornament coloring pages, a holiday bucket list, a spot for photos, a page to write your favorite holiday recipe card, and more! Take a peek at the book and be sure to pick up a few copies for you and all the littles in your life!
