New Feature! Pinterest Collaboration Boards: Each month, the Evermine Blog will be teaming up with one of its regular contributors to put together a Pinterest board with a theme of their choice. These boards will not only inspire you, but also give you a glimpse into each of our contributor’s favorite hobbies. Check back each month to see who we’re featuring next!
Today we’re teaming up with Bobby Pathammavong, a production designer, photographer and blog contributor for Evermine. Bobby wears many hats in the office, and is constantly inspiring us with her creativity and unique artistic sense. That’s why we’re super excited to collaborate with her on a brand new Pinterest board revolving around one of her favorite topics, the great outdoors! Not only does this board help you explore one of Bobby’s favorite hobbies, but it’ll definitely inspire you to GO OUTSIDE and soak in some fresh air.
We’ve asked Bobby a few questions to get to know her role in the office and the inspiration behind the Outdoor Therapy Pinterest board, and here’s what she has to say:
Q. How long have you been contributing to the Evermine blog?
A. About two years.
Q. How do you come up with your blog post ideas?
A. My ideas usually come from what’s happening in my life at the moment. If there’s a special event coming up, it will trigger an idea or a need for a gift. Often there are times when I’m just curious and would like to try out a recipe or learn something new, and that can turn into a post.
Q. What has been your favorite blog post to write for us? Why?
A. I would say that they’ve all been my favorite. I feel truly invested, interested and excited about what I’m writing or sharing, so they’ve all been my favorite in one way or another.
Q. What sorts of things do you do when you aren’t working/blogging?
A. You can usually find me out in the forest or at the coast eating a donut. Adventure time is the best time, and adventure time is especially the best time when there is food involved. I love to cook and try new recipes, but I also love to venture out and experience the food culture that we have out here in the northwest.
Q. Can you tell us a little about the influence behind the Outdoor Therapy Pinterest board?
A. Outdoor therapy is definitely something that I feel is essential to me having a balanced life. It’s really easy to get caught up in work and stress, and the outdoors, for me, is my own way of dealing with it. It’s when I’m the happiest. Growing up in Utah, the outdoors, especially the Wasatch Mountains, were the backdrop to my life. I always tried to make a point to get out there and see, experience and breathe it in. That has carried on in my life out here in the northwest and anywhere I am. This beautiful world is out there for us to experience. It has been a privilege to be able to explore the forests and mountains and coast as I please, and I’m so happy to share my love for it. On the board you can find tips for venturing out, links to bloggers who live the outdoor life, and photos and inspiration to get you going on your own adventures.
