The “Year in Review”. Time Magazine does it…so do countless fashion mags. Hell, every social media outlet has even gotten in the game. So, not to be left out, we wanted to compile our own reel of 2014 highlights. We have big plans in store for the upcoming year, both individually and collectively, but before we jump ahead to resolutions and tackling our goals, we want to throw it back and pay homage to another year, lived perfectly undone. Farewell 2014…
Myka moved WAX to a new location….
This isn’t it. YET! She bought this building for a more permanent home so she will never get kicked out again. It will definitely look better than this. More like this…
In yet another major move, Myka got divorced after 2 years of separation, upped her meditation practice and started Yoga teacher training. She also got a new boyfriend and did an epic drive up the West Coast.
Upon her return she was stoked to find out she was named a Style Arbiter by Atlanta Magazine.
She then turned 40 and busted up a piñata in Tulum….
The end of the year was quiet. She now has design on the mind, as she continues to settle into her loft and make it her own as well as help others with their design dilemmas….
Kadi’s year began with the opportunity to color and style the hair of one of Highbrow Hippie’s biggest inspirations, Diane Von Furstenberg, in anticipation of the opening of her “Journey of a Dress” exhibit. The experience went to another level when Diane graciously extended an invitation to attend the event.
She continued an exciting January by visiting Jackson Hole, a place close to her heart.
Kadi then served on the board of Otis College of Art’s Scholarship and Benefit committee for the 5th year in a row, raising over $1 million worth of scholarships for students in need.
While visiting New York City for work, Kadi was invited to attend The Unique Camp, a 4 day tech-free conference for entrepreneurs in Big Bear, California. She convinced Myka to come along and they had the experience of a lifetime.
Post CAMP, Kadi decided to embrace a new community, and found true joy, friendship and support in the village of Venice Beach.
For her birthday, Kadi collaborated with One Nine Design and Steven Lake Photography to host her friends for an east coast themed lobster bake.
In her “spare time”, she realized a 10 year goal of writing a pilot based on her experiences as a Jamerican hair colorist in Beverly Hills who specializes in blonde hair. Working title, “Roots” ; )
Speaking of blondes, Kadi’s hair color on actress Julia Roberts graced the cover of the September issue and 20th anniversary of InStyle Magazine.
But most important of all, she continued her role as “fairy godmother” to her beloved Zac, Bella and Rocky.
And here we are, after a tumultous 2014, revived, re-focused and excited about the year to come. There are lots of things in store for these two Highbrow Hippies.
We wish you all love, peace and joy in the new year and beyond. Bring it on 2015!
XOXO Myka + Kadi
