Eeek, how is it already the end of May? Does anyone else feel like this past month flew by? There were some big moments for us in the studio this past month, the most notable being the release of our first glassware collection! I started working on this project last fall, and after months of sampling, reviews, and more sampling we finally moved forward with the perfect wine glass! You can read all about the glassware collaboration in this post here. We sold out of our first round already (so exciting! Thank you!) and just restocked last night! You can shop our exclusively Suite One Studio glasses here.
I spent a lot of time creating tasty treats with Chobani in May. This recipe is so good that I made it on repeat. Kim and I don't eat much meat, so we're both always on the lookout for high protein foods that pack great macros. For this reason we keep plenty of Greek Yogurt in the fridge at any time, and Chobani is our favorite by far. When I was approached by Chobani to create recipes and sponsored content for their May campaigns I was over the moon! You can create my summertime favorite Strawberry Pretzel Chobani Greek Yogurt Parfait with this recipe. Just be ready to make it again and again. It's addictingly good!
Toward the middle of the month I caught a nasty cold that kicked my butt. I have such a hard time being sick. It is sooooo boring! Forget the whole feeling like crap part, I'm just bored out of my mind with the thought of sitting still wasting hours and hours not working or doing anything useful. But this cold wouldn't quit, and by day five I was finally accepting the fact that I was legit run down and needed to leave the physical studio work behind so I could properly recuperate. I broke out the sketch books and my watercolors and began working on new product ideas I've been dreaming about for ages. When I was all sketched out I took time to read a few books I've been dying to spend some time with. I'm about halfway through, Creative, Inc.: The Ultimate Guide to Running a Successful Freelance Business which is such a good read for any creative, business owner, or creative business owner, etc. It's been a pretty validating read too, realizing how many aspects of business I've figured out over the years! Sometimes I still feel like I am just making this all up as I go, and reading this book has helped me realize how active and decisive I actually am about my business. Plus I'm learning a ton! You can pick up a copy here and I'd love to hear what you think about this book! Maybe we should start a book club! Really though. Anyone into that idea?
I hope you all had a great May! I can't wait to share new products and sneak peeks with you in June! Come follow along on instagram and Pinterest to catch all the inspiration and things we're loving as the month unfolds!
