As coffee lovers, we could not not write a gift guide for coffee lovers. We all know at least one person in our lives that just seems to run on coffee. Someone that loves coffee as much as Agent Cooper in Twin Peaks. Am I right?
the Hidden Hipsters Posts
As we promised in our past blog posts, we wanted to broaden this series to all kind of creatives. We are super happy to announce that Nikki Van De Poel also known as Satellite June on Instagram is our first photographer in the Discover the Creators series! We have been following her on Instagram since a couple of years and simply love how she accurately captures emotions as well as show the photographer behind the shot with her beautiful self portraits.
Nia Gould also knows as Niaski has captured our hearts the first time we stumbled upon her series “What If Your Favourite Artists Were Cats?”. For any cat lovers out there, you will thank us for this. She creates beautiful illustrations that bring two worlds together beautifully. Art and Cats. Could it be any more perfect?
We stumbled upon Marianna Tomaselli on Instagram a couple of weeks ago. When seeing her work, it seems to instantly catch your attention. She makes you feel as if you are a part of her art. You are part of the universe she created in her illustration, each one is their own world. It’s this feeling that keeps you coming back to see what she will create next!
It is safe to say that we love contemporary illustrations. Thus, when we found Michelle Mildenberg’s we absolutely fell in love with her work. We love the use of her colour palette. The reds in her illustrations just keeps us coming back for more.
One of the reasons we wanted to start this blog is to shed light on local brands. We have been loving Stay Home Club for years but were always looking to find more Montreal brands and it was always hard to find. We would search for Montreal brands and were never satisfied with the results Google would give us.
Hello everybody! We still hope you are liking our little interviews. I would just like to mention how happy we are to have so many talented people answer our questions. As some of you might have noticed we like to keep the same questions for each artist. This way we can really see the differences between each creators and how there is not one way to being successful. Everyone is different.
I absolutely love Fall. It is safe to say it’s one of my favourites. However, I’m always cold so I need a couple of layers to truly enjoy it! For a second we thought it would never get here with the 40 degrees we’ve been experiencing in Montreal for the last week! Now that the season has officially arrived, grab yourself a hot chocolate and read our tips to enjoy Fall to the fullest!
Thanks to someone in the comments on our Meet: Marloes de Vries post, we discovered Angela Mary Vaz behind Straycurls. After going through 3 posts on her Instagram account, we fell in love with her creations! She is relatable, draws in happy colors and will definitely put a smile on your face. This is why we are really excited to announce that she is next in our series!
