We are thrilled to announce a fun new monthly feature for our blog, Ten on Ten. It’s as simple as posting ten pictures on the tenth of the month– One photo, every hour, for ten hours. First up in this new feature is our very own Elaina Samaniego-Myers! Here is a normal weekday for Elaina. Enjoy!
5:30 am- My morning meditation spot up on our roof. I start the day with setting my intention and watching the sun rise over the rooftops. It’s my moment before the kids wake up and the day begins.
7:30 am- Green on green. Every morning I start the day with a homemade green juice that my husband and I enjoy outside in our garden. The kids run wild before school and we have a morning catch up.
8:00am- On my weekly skype call with my sis. Today we’re discussing wall paper options for our new client’s home. We’re loving this Schumacher Queen of Spain black and white!
9:30 am- Sweating it out in the extend barre class at my Pilates studio. Love that we have this awesome workout in Bali! Bali Pilates Studio is the best.
11:00 am- I got to visit my little guy, Hudson today to observe him while in class at his Montessori preschool. I had to sit quietly in the corner and try not to distract him. Ha! Such a special break in my day.
11:45am- One of my favorite parts of what I do is getting to know the lovely people in Bali that I source from. To know them by name and to know about their lives makes work so much more meaningful. Here I am settling the bill for some goods bought for Villa Hansa.
12:30 pm- Most days I break for lunch at the super healthy and super yummy, Down to Earth Cafe. I post up, eat my biggest meal of the day, usually their tasty and always changing Planet Platter, and catch up on my computer work. Today I’m working on one of our new concepts for a new residential project in California.
1:30 pm- Out and about sourcing some goods for Villa Hansa and getting inspired by these cool Indonesian fish traps. There is nothing glamorous about souring in Bali. Most of my spots are hot, dark, dusty and dirty but you never know what amazing treasure you may find and the gorgeous people you meet along the way. Makes it so worth it!
3:30 pm- I’ve picked up my oldest son, Quinn from school and dragged him along to one more spot to find some more goods for Villa Hansa. He makes for a great sourcing companion hamming it up everywhere we go and making all the locals giggle #bringyourkidstoworkday
6:00 pm- Our day ends with an after dinner walk to the beach with the dogs. The boys love the action, the dogs get good exercise, mom and dad get to enjoy the sunset and the day winds down. Happy Family.
Thanks for taking a peek at my day! Find more on Instagram, here.
