This week we're thirsty for a muse. This is the crowd that inspires us creatively, gets us motivated to start something new and, of course, makes us thirsty for adventure.
Traveling is the ultimate education, and Field Trip pairs globetrotting with photography instruction to help you see the world and capture your vision with mastery. There's an artist inside all of us, but sometimes it takes a little coaching to help her come out and play. Field Trip's approach(education +collaboration +vacation) is the creative therapy you've been waiting for.
If you've been through the desert on a horse with no name, you how good it feels to be our of the rain. You also know how thirsty you can get. Even when you're on the edge of the Pacific in El Capitan. You don't want to drink the ocean, though – it's too darn salty. What do you do? Open a bottle of hydrating Cactus Water from our friends at @DrinkCaliWater! It's super tasty, and much better than trying to stick your face in a big dumb cactus. Cali Water is the only safe way to drink a prickly pear. It's a good thing we'll have so much of it! Photo cred @PhilChester #yeahfieldtrip #america #horsewithnoname #dontstickyourfaceinacactus
Miss James has a lot of irons in the fire, and we admire the way she treats each one with style and grace. She balances creating for Mother magazine and Bleubird blog with curating items for Two Son boutique, all while raising four lovely children in Nashville, Tennessee. Her dreamy snapshots are daily reminders to embrace simplicity and chase whimsy.
No one captures the California lifestyle quite like @katieanndenis, so it was easy for us to turn over @drinkcaliwater to her back in October. Her poetic captions mixed with her eye for balance and color somehow make California, and every other place she travels to, feel like you're right there taking it in with her.
We like our kids the same way we like our prickly pears: wild and free. Houseinhabit combines the allure of Southern California with the joyfulness of childhood, and the end result will have you grinning from ear to ear. Skip on over to Etsy and score the Little Folk Alphabet Poster to bring a little of this playful spirit into your own home.
We're swooning over the airy, minimal beauty of WilderCalifornia's photos, especially those of the prickly pear cactus. Shop her prints on Etsy to enliven a bland entryway or office wall, and check out her feature on the Urban Outfitters blog to learn how a clean, simple aesthetic can provide maximum visual impact in a space.
We aim to inspire you to live a healthy, courageous life. Get outside. Go wild. Stay hydrated.
