Rainy trip to a magical garden, where we met Mr. Bui The Manh, one of a few remaining artisans of the Tu Lien kumquat village in Hanoi who holds the secret of planting super-small bonsai kumquat trees in pots. #vietnam

YOU GUYS. Today @linenme is sharing an interview I did with them about our sifted life for their blog series A Simple Path...!!! I hope you enjoy it :) Link in profile, and thank you @linenme for inviting me to be part of this incredibly fun and important discussion! Now go check it out!!!
Born on this day in 1905, #Ada Falcón was a tango singer known for her miraculous green eyes and crystalline voice. Full of glamour, Ada led a luxurious lifestyle and got the attention of tango legends such as Gardel and Discépolo, who were rumored to surrender to her beauty. Another big admirer was the Maharaja of Kapurthala, who sent her very expensive bottles of Arpège by Lanvin #perfume . Ada extravagantly used it to fragrance her house, burning it on her chimney!
Her not-so-secret affair with orchestra leader Francisco Canaro didn't end well, and she mysteriously disappeared from the limelight in the early 40's, trading glamour and worldly riches for a life of asceticism.
The Pro #VirtuosoWeek family was honored to be hosted by @accorhotels for an exclusive Protravel Breakfast at the Pool Cafe of the @bellagio! It was a special morning joined by our wonderful friends & partners across the #AccorHotels family of brands. They certainly made us #FeelWelcome and always do. 😊✨ Swipe right to see all the images from the event. #GoWithPro
As much as I love going to coffee shops, sometimes I enjoy making my coffee at home or taking it on the go. Lately I've been using Brumi by @fullcirclehomellc -- a dual pour over hot and cold brew bottle. It allows me to brew my coffee quickly and simply from anywhere, which is super convenient considering the fact that my plans are always changing. I think we can all agree that coffee is a necessity no matter where you are! ☕️| #coffeeyourway#coffeenclothes
Can the summer holidays just slow down, please?
Look at this little guy with his skinny little legs, always covered in bruises and grazes from fearless adventures.
And ALWAYS WITH A STICK! He finds a stick wherever we go that he just cannot bear to part with. We've got quite the collection now!
This Mini Diamond made its debut over three years ago. I had this idea of making mini ornaments for trees, garland, etc. But they were SO cute that I couldn't discontinue them. They're perfect for a desk top, end table, rearview mirror and so many more places. You can find this design and many more at hemleva.com.
I'm already working on my holiday line up for this year, and it's amazing. And no, I'm not over hyping it. In fact, I may be under hyping it. 😘💚🌿 #hemleva

Left the mountains to refuel, wander around decathlon, and take a dip on the Mediterranean just north of the Spanish border. Missed the mountains so headed into the Pyrenees for a panoramic hike and distant sea view for the night.
Drive along the country lanes in Dorset this month and you'll find buckets of Spirograph dahlias, piles of homegrown veg and jam jars doubling up as honesty boxes. A time honoured recipe if you're lucky too.
Stopped by Mudflat last night to pick up some of my glazed pieces. I'm going to miss @mudflat_studios and @koolikate terribly! Hope I can find an amazing studio to throw clay wherever I land. #throwingclay
It was just her and I around here yesterday. We ran a few errands – the bank for lollipops, the library for books, a thrift store for shoes, and of course you got to top that all off with some coffee. I think I caught a glimpse of the many Mommy + Me outings we'll go on in the coming years. We both had a lot of fun together, but last night when her brother finally came home she could hardly leave him alone, she missed him so much. It sure was quiet around here yesterday, unlike today, but I learned something new about myself: I really don't mind the noise.
