It's been just about a year since we decided to spend most of our time in Joshua Tree as we continue to focus on both our creative projects and building vacation rentals and looking back, it's been one hell of a trip. It certainly is a full 180 from the minimalist city luxe life we left behind - and while I definitely miss certain modern day conveniences, I definitely feel like we traded up when it comes to what we've gained.
Not only do Nikko and I get to spend our entire days together collaborating on different creative projects, amidst some of the most gorgeous and energizing scenery in the world, but we get to set our own schedules - and we can take off and explore whenever we feel like it. And to me, that is what getting the most out of life is all about. It's my way of living a richer, wilder life.
So when Sakroots asked me to show how I live my Wild Life, I knew the best way to do it would be to shoot one of my favorite bags from their new incredible collaboration with artist Niki Pilkington (which benefits the Wildlife Conservation Society, btw) by the painted Joshua Tree at the Noah Purifoy Outdoor Museum - one of my favorite art sites that just happens to be down the road from us.
But also, SURPRISE!! I have a giveaway for you! WIN your favorite piece from their Wild Life collection - all you have to do is:
