I was very excited recently to be asked to collaborate on a special project with Hogan and their Hogan Rebel label.
Hogan Rebel is the urban, ‘edgy’ range of trainers from Hogan and they have chosen 12 modern rebels to speak about their life choices on TheRebelJourney.com
They have created some really beautiful short films about each rebel as well as a rather sophisticated looking coffee table book.
The rebels range from artists to actors to DJs and even venture capitalists but I have to admit that my favourite video is the one on LA-based hat designer, Nick Fouquet, which won several international fashion film awards.
I was asked to become a partner of one of the rebels, filmmaker Bettina Santo Domingo, and a video was created around the inspiration that I took from her outlook on life.
So, Nick and I have been a couple of busy bees over the past few months setting up our newest venture, Curious Wolves.
We love travelling and when people found out I was pregnant all I ever heard was ‘well you can’t go on anymore holidays now then’ and I’ve heard it said to many pregnant friends since.
The idea of travelling with our child has always filled us with excitement and wherever we’ve been we’ve always said ‘Imagine coming back here one day and doing this with our children’.
I’m not entirely sure what stops people going away on adventures with their kids. I don’t know if it’s money, stress or the embarrassment and confrontation that can be involved in dealing with unruly kids and frustrated passengers on aeroplanes, but whatever the reason, we wanted to create something to inspire people to keep travelling.
So we decided to create Curious Wolves. Our focus is on travelling with kids but we wanted it to be a site for adults. There’ll be a heavy focus on food (of course) and we’ll be sharing our favourite products and tips along the way.
As well as the website, we also hope to make short, low-cost travel ebooks in the future and are currently in the process of getting some awesome designs done by our favourite illustrators for some t-shirts and babygrows that we hope to sell.
The other day while Nick was in a meeting I was left to my own devices and decided to browse the rails at TK Maxx. I spied this beauty of a jumper from a little way off and made a beeline for it. I was pleased to discover when I arrived that it was in my size, was by & Other Stories and was £16 instead of the original £45. Winner.
These pictures honestly don’t do the snuggly, chunky knit the justice it deserves.
