Today it’s not any day – no today it’s the birthday of this wild, crazy girl who totally turned my life upside down since we met. We’ve only been friends for 3 years but it’s surly been some of the most eventful years ever and still I know that this is just the start of our adventures. After only a few months of friendship we decided to share our bucketlists and from there it went mad! A few months later I found myself fulfilling wishes I had my whole life, we’re nor runnign our own business, designing books and going on adventures I always dreamt off!
So for your birthday my crazy cat I want to share another of your dreams while helping you tick off another item from your list…
A tree house, a free house,
A secret you and me house,
A high up in the leafy branches
Cozy as can be house.
Thank you Ash for being the most curious, spontaneous, hardworking, wild, beautiful, sweet, encouraging spirit and loving, loyal friend. The memories we’ve always created are like a lifetime and I can’t wait to go explore every nook of this big beautiful world with you!
So for our roadtrip around America we’re gonna climb up some cool tree and re-live that childhood dream! Can’t wait to share this with you! See below for a few options.
It’s leavers time for high school kids all around the world and we think our WANDERLUST travel journal is a perfect going away gift for those who are jetting off to explore our big, beautiful world.
With 220 pages full of fun questions, inspiring quotes and quirky little todo notes it will capture all those wild moments and sensational experiences one has when globe-trotting around our wonderful world.
For those Scandinavian celebrating ‘STUDENTEN’ you can find our the book at PAPERCUT in Stockholm or Illum in Copenhagen. (Papercut delivers within Sweden. For the rest of the world please see our retailers tab above.)
What better way to celebrate my last night in Sydney than with a Launch party with my favourite ladies.
Our friend Matt who runs the popular bar ‘The Foxhole’ in the city had the grand opening for his new venue ‘Mr Tipply’s’ on the corner of King & Kent St. Delicious Asian fusion canapés, endless rounds of red wine, fabulous company and a few too many runs to the photobooth made it another Sydney night to remember.
Thank you Matt & and all my gorgeous friends for a FAB night. I’ll see you soon again Sydney!
Last night at the Meriton hotel after a month of craziness in Sydney! Going to miss Axel!
“My lovely Wanderlust –
a must have for everyone who likes to travel”
“Recieved my travel journal ‘Swept away by Wanderlust’ today
that I purcased from Axel & Ash.
Thank you so much I love it. Can’t wait to use it!’
Just got off Skype interviewing this wild, passionate & inspiring guy! @seb100things. 5 years ago Seb decided to follow his dreams by writing his bucketlist down. Yesterday he got selected into the National Mauritius rugby team, ticking off #44 on his list – ‘Represent a country at something!’ Check out 100things.com and get lost in all the crazy stuff his done! We are stoked to share his incredible story in our next book!
Today we were invited to the launch of the new gorgeous interior store ‘The Design Hunter’ on Bronte Rd. The modern concept of mixing a design studio, renovation service and property styling with a homeware-shop has proven a hit and they are now expanding with a new shopfront just across the road from the old one into – designer heaven!
The old space has now transformed into a studio for the team of designers, decorators and stylists, whilst the new space on the other side is a beautiful shop offering a wide range of hand-picked collections. From exclusive furniture, edgy artwork and selected pieces – the stunning selection will take your breath away. Being from Sweden I love the massive scandinavian influence but you’ll find beautiful pieces from all around the world. And best of all – a small but top range of amazing books! I saw at least 5 of my absolute favourite titles there and we are so excited that ‘WANDERLUST’ is sold amongst them all!
Design studio 267 Bronte Road, Wavereley 2024.
Right now we’re back working where it all started – at Berkelouw Paddington. I’ve (Axel) had the most beautiful, productive day cafe-hopping and working all around town. After a beautiful brekkie at Kepos St. Kitchen with my bestest man friend Mobbsi I popped into Ampersand Cafe in Surry Hills with a book delivery and a chat. Then I was off to SNAP printing to get some new envelopes and tags. I then stopped by at Reuben Hills for Lunch and a few hours of work on the computer. However, on the way to Berkelouw I got stuck browsing around the stores on Crown St for some inspiration and got tempted to visit my fav salad bar Madame Char Char for a salad treat. Now I’m finally here, cuddled up in a cosy corner and just bought Leigh-Ann Pow’s book that she told us all about the other day ‘Fashionably Worn’…
Leigh-Ann Pow was the deputy editor of Australian VOUGE for 13 years and her stories are just incredible. We couldn’t wait to pick up her book and I found it front-facing amongst all the other amazing VOUGE books and Karl Lagerfeld porn! The cover is beautiful and the book holds the most divine guide to vintage-shopping I’ve ever read. And the coolest thing of all – she actually shot all the pics and drew all the illustrations herself! Whilst waiting for Ash to finish work, I have gotten stuck flicking through this gorgeous book filled with vintage everything..
Ash has now just joined me! We now have 4 hours in front of us of working, rawsome juices and chai! all whilst trying not to get distracted by all the tempting books surrounding us!
