Let’s Camp 2018

Mandy from The Glossary and Nikki from Feminest teamed up for a second year to bring creative women a weekend away outdoors! This weekend was dedicated to creative women entrepreneurs who were looking to learn new skills, meet likeminded people, practice self-care, network for future collaborations, or get away for a weekend. It was filled with inspiring workshops, relationships, eating, swimming, fire building, and creating.  A deep breath – a disconnection from every day life and a connection to nature, female entrepreneurship, and your creative mind.

(We found it abandoned a wrecked overgrown shell deep in the brush- now a 2nd life on its little perch) 📷: @bobcoscarelli

GQ Visits camp. Brings Scotch.

CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE “For catching up with good friends, nothing beats a rustic and relaxed setting. Go for the kind of grown-up hideout where you can kick back and just chill, no commitments or itinerary necessary. For Philp and his pals Olivia and Ford [?], a wooded sleepaway-camp-style retreat just over the border in Wisconsin, within easy driving distance of the city, was the ticket—both rugged and civilized, with tricked-out treehouse lodgings for a club-like feel. They hiked, they rowed, they even let some arrows fly” full film here
