This journal is inspired by our obsessive pursuits to find inspiration, people, products, music, destinations and vibes that are truly great and unique. As our Pursuit page says, we teach our children to question everything, yet we live in a world where the status quo and conformity have become the norm. Not here. Not this brand. There are no rules here. There are no boundaries to our dreams. There is no age limit to having fun. We’re incredibly excited to start this dialog with you and to bring you a few brand updates but mainly we wanted this space to be about finding the things that not only move us but move you. We’ve broken down our journal into Pleasure, Performance and Pursuit for easy reading and surfing. We hope you enjoy and let’s have some fun!

Michael & Laurie

Laurie is loving the new Badass 11 11 candle from our good friend Courtney Somer’s brand, Lake & Skye. In a collab with InStyle, Lake & Skye created a candle in their signature 11 11 scent that is a musky blend of white ambers. The candle celebrates Badass women and the InStyle issue dedicated to the same subject. In honor of this collab Lake & Skye have donated to She Should Run, a non-partisan, non-profit that encourages women to run for office.

Michael has been thoroughly enjoying some local beers from the newly opened Torch & Crown in downtown Manhattan. Michael’s choice has been Almost Famous, a fantastic New England style IPA that’s smooth, hazy and packs a bit of a punch! Founded by two NYC friends, Torch & Crown is grounded by 3 founding principles: Great beer, ambitious creations and a love of NYC. All things we whole heartedly agree with. Check out their beer list and great dining space, and if you’re in the area be sure to let Michael know and he might just drop in and have a pint (or two!) with you.

We love music. All music. We love making playlists. This is a family endeavor that is always a lot of fun. Everyone has an opinion and all genres are welcome. That’s what makes it so much fun. Every playlist we make has songs that we’re currently feeling or recently found again or even better yet we’re friends with some of the artists themselves. This playlist is no exception. Play it loud. Crank it up. Let us know what you’re listening to and we’ll throw it on our next mix.

Our whole house has been enjoying Recoup Wellness drinks. A NYC based start-up with a simple mission; to help people feel better. Fed up with drinks that are heavy on sugar and artificial ingredients the founders created an all natural and organic based drink that has ginger in every bottle. Trust us, these are yummy! Emerson loves the Cucumber + Lemon, Laurie’s favorite is the Watermelon + Blood Orange and Michael the Pineapple + Coconut.

If you know us, you know we love cars and car talk. We couldn’t resist posting about the new McLaren Artura that just launched not to mention we have to give our friend and new McLaren F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo a quick shout out for the insane test-lap he takes the Artura on. The Artura is McLaren’s first hybrid supercar. While some of the styling evokes previous McLaren models the Artura is low and lean and is a fresh interpretation of the McLaren DNA. For all our gearheads out there the tech data on this car is insane: total BHP of 671, 0-60 in 3 seconds and a top speed of 205 MPH. We’re sincerely hoping that Daniel Riccardo reaches out and offers us a hot lap in the near future!

We cannot forget one of the biggest things that’s been driving us over the past few weeks and that is Natural Selection. Wow. What an inspiration. The manifestation of Travis Rice’s dream, Natural Selection is a first of it’s kind tour that combines snowboard Olympians and contest riders with back country, big mountain film riders in a competition. Make sure to check out the highlights and recap of both days from Jackson Hole, WY here.

Reading is a big part of our lives and how we try and find some downtime and a few minutes away. We would love to know what’s on your nightstand. Here’s what we’re reading.


Emerson is currently fully engrossed in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Feel free to reach out to us if you want to know to what House you belong!
