a warrior day off

Harvey MacKay said

Find something you love to do
and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.

For us that is, at least for the most part of the journey, – very true.
For however long our days are, and however much there is
nothing like Sunday or Monday in the life of a Warrior,
or at least they don’t hold any truth as to being a day off or
the classic first day of the workweek, – we often don’t feel like
we’re working. We feel like we’re living

For our days float into nights where we open up,
be it over drinks or just great food, in a respite that only
brings us closer and where the most of our projects
and ideas come to life under the stars.

That said, a Warrior has to know when
it’s time for rest &, in some cases, – recuperation.
And a true Warrior knows, this too is an art.
It doesn’t matter what name the day has,
or where in the world we currently call home.
It’s all about being all there. 
And granted, some places on earth are
more easy than others to just be.
Let us take you a long for one of our favorite
places like that. Dream beach.
{Yes. That’s the actual name of it.}

Wherever we kick our sandals off, – that’s our home. | LW bracelet w. antique shells : here | + details from LW summer’14

 

 

 And this is why it doesn’t feel like we’re working.
Why instead it feels like we’re living. Because we can’t help but,
in the midst of just being, – meditatively picking shells & stunning shapes
on the beach, until time is erased entirely, – to also be inspired by just that.
And that’s what is then put into our work. The sensation of that day is
threaded on that bracelet, in between the shells & the cotton.
And that’s why it is an art form to have a day off as a Warrior,
the line between work & revitalization is a vague one;
it’s been washed over by the most beautiful of waves,
& left is only a immersion in the sand, at dream beach.

the snake charmer

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLWSnakeCharmerKimono01

 

and here she is. the snake charmer. or rather her attire.
the snake charmer kimono.
she’s for the daring ones, for the ones that wanna be
a bit of both; wild & untamed but with a surprisingly soft touch.
as we told you about before, we decided not to produce any
real snake LW products, due to the cruel treatment we
couldn’t be guaranteed they would have to suffer, for us
to enjoy a stunning purse or clutch. we all stood in awe as the
spitting cobra raised, statuesquely transfixing us warriors
with its strong & unfaltering glance, ~ and spit its poison in
our direction. then we decided to simply be respectfully inspired
by its skin & yes, just so – surprisingly soft touch..

to see the painter’s daughter, or if you like more just the
dream of a snake we’ve presented them to you back in time,
~ & our honeypie has given you a glimpse of la parisienne
and any day now we’ll tell you a little more about the
daughter of smoke & bone ..
we’re already blown away by your welcoming
of this, our 1st little kimono collection, 
and we’re getting back to you on your pre-orders & questions
as fast as we can. oh, how you make us proud, sisters.

 

stay amazing!
much love,

the warriors

werk

 

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyWarriorMeetings01Mono

 

 when we work, we work. 
and that is mostly what we do do.
a lot of work goes into being a love warrior.

then there’s play. 
{all work and no play, well, ~ you know..}

and when we play, we play.
a lot more play than we could’ve ever imagined
goes into being a love warrior.

 

LWLoveLace03Box

 

did we tell you it all started as a dream
on the side of cocktails, – and a cocktail napkin
with a name scribbled on it ? 
just little over a year ago, spilling ideas and
perhaps some daiquiri, on that very piece of tissue,
on that very name,  – we would’ve never have thought
we’d be where we are today.

never thought it’d turn out to be a
love of our lives.

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLoveWhatYouDo

 

and what’s to say about that ?
a must is to say thank you. to you.
thank you for being a part of this journey
and bringing it, – & us even more love.

and what’s more ?
if you have a dream, don’t let it be
just a note, a name
scribbled on a piece of paper.
give it a shot. give it all you’ve got.
and love what you do.

indian summer – the scents

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyLookingForLoveLabelLWScent

 

scent has something magic to it, already in its name somehow,
~ & we’ve probably all had experiences of time travel in its company.
one of our most magic experiences involving scent at all, 
must be the hours we spent selecting top, ~ & base notes for these,
our first scented candles. just the setting.. an all white little candle factory
in the outskirts of the jungle; where the american owner had a longterm standing
collaboration with the world capital of perfume; grasse in france.

we travelled, in many ways, together that glowing afternoon;
carefully opening tiny apothecary bottles in long rows, 
labelled with their special perfume, ~ & mixing these, our three
final scents to start off with. a light, airy one; later named love and linen,
a ’middle one’, with flowery tones and history,
~ & a heavier one, with musky chocolate. something for each taste.

 

©HannahLemholtPhotographyWarriorWeekend02@2x

 

we would sit and listen to their stories of the scents,
~ & one in particular we so enjoyed; having seen both men and
woman wear a flower behind their ear in the little town.
we were taught the chempaka flower is used for worship in the temples,
but also worn as a sign, behind the ear of singles, to send the
fragrant & beautiful message that they are looking for love.

~ & we’d love some of your constructive feedback on our first attempt.

peace, love & fragrant memories,
