You know when you fall in love with a brand online only to become even more obsessed and in love when you see and feel the goods in person? That is Seek Collective for me. I originally swooned over every piece in their shop but when I received my items in the mail I couldn’t get over how truly exquisite they were. It also doesn’t hurt that each piece is lovingly created by artisans using hand block printing and weaving as well as natural dying processes. You can see the details and beautiful craftsmanship in each piece – the love and time taken to create them truly shows. The fabrics they use are organic and all of their stitching is done in India in a training center that provides work to the local women in a safe facility with fair wages and overtime. You can learn more about their process here.
Tulum. A dream come true. Ivan and I planned this solo trip in March and we had been counting down the weeks until July – I still can’t believe it came and went. It was just what we needed as individuals and as a couple. We had no real agenda. All we wanted was to be together and enjoy each other’s company. The beach, margarita’s, and sleep (OH THE SLEEP) were amazing bonuses. We stayed in The Beach Tulum and it was perfection.
