Shinola // My City Campaign


I recently partnered with Shinola this Spring on a campaign featuring some of my favorite places in Minneapolis. I feel honored to have worked with this incredibly company and am always impressed with their products, quality and aesthetic. Here's a few of my favorite spots and a few extra's from Lue tagging along with us while we shot. She seemed to enjoy the in and out of each location. We were expecting many emotions, and she ended up getting super into it and asking, "where next!?" 

Thank you SO much Shinola, for having me be a part of this campaign! 

Here's a few of the must see locations in Minneapolis! (In no particular order) 

GYST Fermentation Bar: 25 E 26th St., Minneapolis MN

They offer all fermented items. Literally some of my very favorite foods all under one locale. Featuring cheese, house-made kombucha, wine, olives, and chocolate. 

Tao Natural Foods: 2200 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis MN

This is the best place for organic smoothies and juices. Coziest little cafe in front and the earthiest little shop in back with loose tea, herbs, and almost anything you would need for a holistic life. 

Wilson and Willys: 211 Washington Ave., Minneapolis MN 

Here they offer beautifully made home, giftable, clothing and jewelry made by many artisans right here in the area. Each item is so perfectly hand picked, you can sense the quality and care put into the process. This is Anna who works there. She is an absolute delight! And of course, their shop dog, Lamont. 

Spruce Flowers and Home: 4751 Chicago Ave S., Minneapolis MN 

My absolute favorite place to get blooms when I am in the city. They always have something new that I've never heard of and its the biggest treat to stop in here. Even if I am buying florals for someone else, it still feels like a special treat to go in and experience it all for myself. 

 The Foundry Home Goods: 125 First Street North, Minneapolis MN 

This is my happiest place in the city. I am fully obsessed and in love with the pieces chosen here. From gorgeous linen bread bags, to specialty brass home items, to wool blankets, perfect towels, beeswax candles in all sizes and eco-friendly refillable soaps... There isn't an item in this store that wasn't chosen so precisely and with intention. This is a MUST GO for sure, when in the city. 


The Copper Hen: 2515 Nicollet Ave S., Minneapolis MN 

One of our favorite places to eat in the city for sure for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Favorite dishes include the blueberry-bacon cupcake, co-op pizza with a fresh egg on top, and their incredible cheeseboard selections. They are absolutely huge on "farm to table" items and the ambiance in here is one of the best in the city. LOVE! 

It was a beautiful adventure day! We certainly love Minneapolis! 

There are so many beautiful spots in this city, but these are for sure some of my favorites. Hope you can visit them all and I'd love to hear of your favorites too. 

Check out Shinola's Instagram for more great Minneapolis locations! You can also follow me here and see a lot more, too! Seriously, thank you to my sweet husband who had so much "photographers patience" while shooting some of these. He was like, "okay, whats your vision. Art direct me Fox!" Such a sweet man, and so thankful for him. It was such a fun adventure with these two.
