Erica Hartnick

Carve Designs Athelete Erica Hartnick recently spent some time in Costa Rica. Here she tells us a little bit about her experience:
"I was fortunate enough to take part in a work exchange program at the amazing Encanta La Vida (, on the Osa peninsula of Costa Rica. Roughly translating to "for the love of life!", Encanta La Vida is set in the rainforest in front of world class surf breaks. I was privileged to be the resident yoga teacher at Encanta La Vida. Each day I taught yoga on an unreal yoga deck overlooking the ocean and the Golfo Dulce. It was very special experience to be able to practice and teach immersed in such a high density of nature. I saw scarlet macaws, blue morpho butterflies, four types of monkeys, and toucans, DAILY! I was also fortunate enough to become friends with the incredible Matapalo community as well as meet other interesting people traveling through the area. When not working, I enjoyed being in the ocean, surfing, and exploring trails through the primary rainforest. I am enjoying life, following what I love: the ocean, traveling, nature, surfing, yoga, meeting new people and enjoying new experiences. I encourage everyone to travel and follow what they love because life is too short not too. Plus, you get to learn a lot about yourself along the way. I hope to return to Costa Rica for the 2012/2013 season". -Erica

Travels to Troncones

Here at Carve Designs we have another successful photo shoot under our belts! For our spring 2013 line, we went down to the beautiful beachside village of Troncones, Mexico. We were blessed with amazing weather, a stunning house steps away from the beach, great food, and most importantly, the best crew around! Thanks to everyone who made this shoot a success! Take a peak to see what goes on ‘behind the scenes”:

Products we love

San Francisco had a dry sunny winter and then March hit us with days and days of rain. Which has left me yearning for the warmth of spring that isn't here yet. There is still a damp chill in the air and as much as I want to wear my new Haviana's I can't. So I'm stuck in my black skinny jeans and boots until it warms up. But what I am doing, is prepping for the heat by using coconut cream that smells of summer and generally makes me happy. Taking my omega's to thicken my hair and make it thicker and beach ready. Wearing my favorite juice beauty sun screen so I don't burn the first day I see the sun and moisturizing with a concentrated oil of cranberry and grape seeds and after sun cream to lessen any damage. And my lips are a whole other issue. No matter what I do they remain dry. I love Bag Balm because it can be used anywhere you have a dry spot. It literally cures it in seconds. These are just a few of the products I love and I wanted to share them with you. If anything they will make you smell and feel like summer is near.

Juice Beauty Products, Omega's, Bag Balm and Chandler farm coconut cream are at your local whole foods

Spring Color

I just came back from a little R&R in Florida. Normally its not the first place that comes to mind to travel to but, I needed the sun, sand and warm water. Florida is a place like no other. People are constantly in white pants with preppy pink and green tops. But amidst all the popped collars and loafers there is some really cute stuff floating around. Attached are a few shots of color and prints that I saw in dressing rooms, homes and just around. When I arrived back in California my head was spinning with color ideas and thoughts of summer. I turned to none other than Kelly Wearstler for some more inspiration and snagged a few images that were just as inspiring as what I picked up in Florida. It seems Kelly does a good job infusing Florida prep with California pop. Hope you enjoy the color story as much as we do.

What you don’t see behind the scenes, is months, even years, of planning, thinking and collaborating to get our ideas out the door. But nothing starts without some good old inspiration. Take a look at some of the images that continue to inspire us each and everyday!
