Dont miss out on something that could be great just because it could also be difficult.
Yup, keyword there being shared. we forget too often that we don’t own the ocean or the creatures in it. they aren’t meant to be in captivity for our entertainment. we don’t have the right to cull its predators in an attempt to make it safer for us to be there. we don’t have the right to dump trash or waste of any kind into the sea. it doesn’t belong to us. we are mere visitors who are lucky enough to get to share the ocean with its true inhabitants.
Songs and smells will bring you back to a moment in time more than anything else. It’s amazing how much can be conjured with a few notes of a song or a solitary whiff of a room. A song you didn’t even pay attention to at the time, a place that you didn’t even know had a particular smell.

If travel has momentum and wants to stay in motion, as I mentioned earlier, then adventure has the gravitational pull of a black hole. The more you do it, the more you find a way to keep doing it.
Karen Walker collaborates with local Kenyan artisans for UN initiative.
Noted New Zealand eyewear designer Karen Walker recently teamed up with the United Nations’ International Trade Centre’s Ethical Fashion Initiative, collaborating with local artisans in Kenya to make unique screenprinted and beaded pouches for her Summer 2014 collection.
The campaign, photographed by Derek Henderson, also features some of the individuals who made these pouches including machinists, cutters, tailors, production managers, metal workers and members of the Maasai group who created the beading work, modelling the collection. The workshop took place in Waithaka, a small village 20 minutes from Nairobi.
When I first saw this campaign and the design of the sunglasses, the first thing that came to mind was Cyrus Kabiru and his incredible c-stunners. Would’ve been fantastic had he and Walker collaborated on a range of exclusive eyewear.
The sunglasses range will be available in February.
