Happy Weekend & Happy Adventures via Tiny Atlas

Happy Weekend with Tiny Atlas xo Design Wine Sunshine

I’ve just discovered {+ instantly followed} Tiny Atlas’ Instagram feed. I’m thrilled!
If you have any sort of wanderlust like me, this round-up of adventurers from around the world will be absolutely intoxicating. Via this Instagram journey, you can start your day off in the Italian bazaars for breakfast, gaze over the beach horses in Barbados for lunch, & then catch a light-studded stroll in Hong Kong – after a luxurious dinner in Paris, of course. It’s mesmerizing, & exactly the day dream I could hope for while enduring the last hurrah of winter in Colorado.

Artifact Uprising – Gift Your Instagrams!

I love the idea of book design. Each spread is a blank canvas – yet together, an entire body of work is concluded between a cover, that you can hold, touch, journey with, and keep forever. I also love the idea of Instagram, my little artistic library of square photos that have been documenting not only my life, but my closest friends and design gurus for years. These little live streaming (and carefully curated) set of photo memos keep me connected to a beautiful world of inspiration. [Ah, designer daydreams …]
Enter my new discovery, Artifact Uprising. I’m stoked! Pull your favorite ‘Grams and turn them into a gorgeous catalog of your smartphone explorations. I’ve wanted to create a 2nd year anniversary book for Blaise – in my copious spare time, HA! – and many of our most beautiful shots are already in my Instagram account. Their Instagram Friendly Books and this Set of 12 Prints seems like a sure bet, hurray!
ps – These would be stunning gifts you could quickly toss together for the holidays (hint, hint!).

Design, wine, sunshine, California….
Sometimes i think of all the words i should’ve put into this blog’s name, since the title represents things i love dearly. Of course, so many wonderful things had to be left out…dogs, good energy, standing desks, feng shui, laughter, yoga, caffeine, the list could be an entire post… and maybe it will be someday, hmmmmm. But BEACH & PALM TREES were definitely in the running. I love and not-so-love California in many ways, but its crazy shoreline and sublime weather always calls my name in the depth of a land-locked winter. This trip, as i’ve mentioned, is super-special ’cause we’re road trippin’ it with our pups all the way from Colorado. I’m so excited to bask in warmer temps that my heart is all aflutter. We depart tomorrow bright and early! I’d love it if you’d sync up with me on Instagram @designwinesunshine for lots of fun road-trip updates. ‘Til then, please enjoy the california dreamin’ pinboard i’ve tossed together, and these great snaps from the grid above (from top left to bottom right) one, two, three, four.
top’s mine. ; ) Kampai!
