Guest Hunter, Kellie Kalvig

A lady..

Guest Hunter, Kellie Kalvig

Guest Hunter, Kellie Kalvig

by the name of Kellie Kalvig is this week’s Guest Hunter.  Kellie grew up in the Pacific Northwest and is currently happily living in Brooklyn.  She works as a Freelance Art Director so she’s had the luxury of living in some amazing places like San Francisco and Sydney. She’s a self proclaimed “foodie, water lover and deal finder”.  Not to mention, Kellie’s one of those people who is hard to keep track of because she’s always jetting off somewhere.  Day trips, road trips, big trips, you name it, she’s down.

Kellie’s picks were inspired by her love of travel and some of the amazing places she’s been fortunate enough to visit. With her awesome eye, amazing sense of creativity and fun personality, it’s no surprise, her choices are pretty darn badass. So keep reading to check out what this worldly lady’s got to say!

Artist Dolan Geiman’s Contemporary Art with a Southern Accent always catches my eye. I first saw his work at an art show while visiting Chicago. Americana mixed-media!

Erosion Sink

This topographic sink is just plain cool. It’s the Erosion Sink by Gore Design.

There are a few things that I don’t travel without(and basically have with me any time I leave the house).

 MAC Lady Danger + Girl About Town Lipsticks

MAC Lady Danger + Girl About Town Lipsticks

Bright lipstick—the brighter the better. My current obsessions are MAC Lady Danger + Girl About Town.

Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker

Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker—preferably the giant tube—which I have been using since I was a kid.

An essence oil of some kind, because you never know when you need to freshen up. And its always nice when someone tells you you smell good. My Staples are:

Kai Perfume OilKiehl’s Coriander Essence Oil (which they unfortunately discontinued, but there is still some stock left) and Archibald Sister’s China Rain Perfume Oil.

UrbanDaddy

UrbanDaddy

I am always entertained by the UrbanDaddy.com travel section. It’s focused on totally dude-y adventures that either seem awesome like any cool lady would want go too(rafting, gambling and choppers out west), or seem super funny and douchey (jet pack flight school).

Kids

Donna Wilson Boat Mini Blanket

I think it’s always good to inspire kids to have adventures – from building forts to making up stories to actually going places. Donna Wilson is a London-based designer making all sorts of cool stuff for the home, including this Boat Mini Blanket that seems like the perfect start to an afternoon sea voyage.

Food

Any time I travel I love to bring home local hot sauces. Check out this collection from a recent trip to New Orleans. Some other favs are Salsa Lizano from Costa Rica and Melinda’s Hot Sauce from Belize. You can usually find them at home if you keep your eyes peeled.
