This last week, we had the pleasure of attending Wanderlust festival in Whistler! This gorgeous town is full of smiling yogis, outdoor enthusiasts, delicious restaurants (TONS of vegetarian options) & countless outdoor activities to keep you busy for days. Luckily we got to come up a whole week early to explore the grounds, shot our new Mika SWIM goods & were able to set up "Mika Web Camp." We worked around the clock on our BRAND NEW website - (if you haven't noticed yet, Mika got a makeover!) This took quite some time so when we were able to take breaks from the computer, the mountain air did us good! (ok ok...wine helped too)
The festival itself was a ton of fun! Since there was 3 of us, we were lucky enough to be able to take turns attending classes. We laughed & grooved with MC Yogi & his beautiful wife Amanda Giacomini, attempted to get our flow on with Ms. Shiva Rea, had our bums handed to us by powerhouse Ana Forest & danced our gypsy hearts out to the music of Michael Franti.
Aside from taking part in the classes at wanderlust, we loved meeting so many joyful, happy and beautiful people that stopped by our little Mika Booth! Since we don't have a physical store, we thoroughly enjoy setting up shop- even if it's for a few days. It's no secret we are fans of DIY projects, so creating a booth space also allows us to design all kinds of handmade decor for the shop. We take our crafting very seriously. In fact, we ended up selling and giving away much of our boho decor to shoppers! Note to self: Make more dream catchers next time!
Here are some snaps of our Wanderlusting adventure! We hope you can get an inside look as to what goes on behind the scenes at Mika & Wanderlustfest!
