When Tasha Tilberg and Laura Wilson had their twins Bowie and Gray, they left LA and headed out to upstate British Columbia to live off the land. I spoke to the faces of @acnestudios new FACE campaign - the brand’s ongoing project celebrating non-nuclear family constellations - about the challenges of life off-grid and why it’s so important to raise children to be in tune with nature.

“One day, that year, the universe turned my point-of-view inside out like a sock, and my spirit fainted. When I was brought back, I was teary-eyed, and I had to then go on Oprah... This happened on my birthday dude. So it’s like, what do you know? We don’t know anything, so you should spend the rest of your life being grateful, sharing your experiences and helping others to see that light that is so bright and so beautiful and so inspiring. All I know is there’s something bigger and greater that always was, is, and always will be. That’s the universe.” Reunited with @pharrell to talk about the year that changed everything for the relaunch of @luomovogue. Photographed by the legendary @brigittelacombe. Thank you @efarneti @thomasperssonal @mralanprada. Link 👆🏽

Umi wishes you a Happy #WorldOceansDay! Ocean wishes you a Happy Umi Day! (Umi means ocean in Japanese.) Flashback to reuniting her with the Atlantic last week in Estoril. #fortheoceans #fortheumi 🌊 PS - check out the @parley.tv livestream of their takeover of the United Nations HQ today.

Christo and Jean-Claude work in progress - Barrels and the Mastaba 1958-2018 - coming to Instagram soon! #christo #jeanclaude @serpentineuk

Humans are the only animals that create waste that doesn’t degrade - or takes at least 500 years to do so in plastic’s case - is one of many things I learned investigating the causes of and solutions to Bali’s ocean plastic problem for @parley.tv earlier this year. Every second breath we take is generated by the oceans. The oceans give us life, and all we give them plastic. 🌊
Parley are taking over the @unitednations HQ this Friday so if you’re in New York and want to learn more about their call for a material revolution and solutions which reinvent the products and economic tools that shape us just click through to their page or the link in my bio. 🌊
Not in NY? Take the #ParleyAIR challenge and ban one item from your life and challenge others to do the same; plastic bottles, takeaway boxes, weed baggies - any single-use plastic. Avoid. Intercept. Redesign. 📷 @giacomo_cosua c/o @cyrillgutsch 🌊

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Brunskill! 💙

You probably noticed from our over sharing past few days that we loved staying at A Terra in Alentejo and would totally recommend it - place has the kind of vibe we would normally travel halfway around the world to find. We stayed in a 2 bed log cabin in the second pic, and there’s some shots of some the other buildings here also. There are also turtles in the lake.
