Fall cocktail recipe for spiced pear gin fizz to mix in S'well stainless steel bottle

 

While we enjoyed the summer months and had our fair share of sun, backyard barbecues and bright, citrusy libations, we’re ready to take it all indoors for fall. The cool months are perfect for warm gatherings with friends and family and signature spiced cocktails.

Adorn your mantle piece with a decked out cocktail cart: a bar tray complete with a variety of liquors, appropriate mixing tools, glassware, and a S’well,filled with a mixer, at the ready. Keep it monochromatic with a shiny metallic tray and silver accessories, and let the array of bottles be the centerpiece. Guests can help themselves to the drink of the evening or create their own concoction. However you style it, your evening is sure to be full of sips, snaps, stories, and smiles.

Looking for inspiration for a signature cocktail to serve? Read below for a recipe for Spiced Pear Gin Fizz, a drink we can’t wait to try at our next soirée.

S'well water bottle essentials on adventures across the world

 

Here at S’well HQ, we love following along with all of your #swelladventures, whether it’s getting some sun on the picturesque Amalfi coast, or trekking to the highest peak in the U.S.  What we love most about our fans is their penchant for travel, adventures, and, of course, showing off where they’re taking their S’well! We talked with Lana Marshall, a student with an affinity for capturing beautiful scenery, who recently crossed off Oregon and Washington State her travel bucket list. Read on to find out more about her trip to the Pacific Northwest and where she’s planning on going next.

 

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

My name is Lana Marshall. I am 18 years old, attending school in Florida where I intend on majoring in marketing! When I’m not at work I’m usually out taking a ton of photos or planning my bucket list.

 

#SwellAdventures blog series covers the adventures of S''well fan on her trip through Oregon and Washington

 

Tell us about your #SwellAdventure.  

Last month, I spent about a week total in the Pacific Northwest, Oregon and Washington State, going on spontaneous adventures every day. I went with my dad who had never been further than Nevada before. It was a really cool experience for both of us since mountains and huge forests are impossible to come by in Florida.

 

Why did you choose that destination?

I had seen so many photos of the huge peaks, waterfalls, and creeks in the PNW and I knew that it had to be so much better to experience it all in real-time. After that, I was looking at all the amazing trails there were and decided I had to make a trip over there!

 

S'well bottle is the best stainless steel water bottle for hikes and adventures

 

How did you plan for your #SwellAdventure?

Every morning we would get up and decide where we wanted to go. We rented a car so it was really easy to get to our destination. We drove a total of 1,500 miles while we were there!  

 

Which S’well did you take with you?

I packed my 25oz “Navy Alligator” S’well and I bought my dad a 25oz “Teakwood” S’well. I knew he really loved it for the trip but the awesome thing is he’s still using it several weeks later!

 

S'well water bottle will keep liquids cold for 24 hours on long hikes and adventures

 

What are your other adventure essentials?

We both had backpacks, camera equipment, snacks, maps, extra clothes, water shoes, etc. I brought my GoPro Hero 4 Silver and Canon 5D because documenting the sights was one of the main reasons why I went out to the Pacific Northwest.

 

Have any good adventure tips or tricks you’d like to share?

I would say: ALWAYS bring a map! If you’re on a trail that’s mostly unmarked, you will most likely lose service and your phone’s GPS will probably get confused. You don’t want to be lost 5,000 ft in the air without any sense of direction.

What’s been your favorite adventure to date?

Honestly, this was my favorite adventure to date. I’ve been to big cities like New York and Chicago, and while they’re amazing, it was so cool to be able to look out over what seemed like the whole world and everything be so quiet!

 

What is the next #SwellAdventure on your bucket list?

One place I’ve been wanting to visit is Thailand. I’ve been starting a bit of research and hopefully I’ll be able to make it happen within the next couple of years!

“The hair, makeup, and daily outfit changes all while racing from event to event by trying to snag the quickest mode of transportation whether that be taxi, Uber (or even a Citi Bike to maximize your time) can be hectic and even stressful at times.  No better way to get from A to B than a Citi Bike.”

Recap of the S'well bottle New York Fashion Week Pop-Up Shop in the Meatpacking District

 

There was an amazing turnout for S’well’s first ever pop-up shop this past weekend. Fans came from around the world to support their favorite brand’s premiere at legendary NYFW, and we definitely made some new friends along the way. For 2 days straight we had people pouring out of our shop onto the busy streets of the Meatpacking District, fawning over our new collection of bottles. S’well premiered it’s newest Fall/Winter collection, which features some patterns that would match with even the most outlandish NYFW #swellstreetstyle ensembles. Shoppers were able to browse and buy the collection, including our newest limited edition 25oz bottle featuring Yoon Hyup’s artwork. Hyup was on-site Saturday to custom sign bottles and meet-and-greet fans. A steady stream of patrons posed for our luxe photo booth, filled up their freshly bought bottles at our Brita Hydration Station, and we even had visits from our furry friends. Below are some of our favorite shots from the weekend. Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate S’well!

About the Artist: Yoon Hyup

S'well interviews the artist behind their new office mural, Yoon Hyup

 

Bridging the gap between downtown cool and uptown style may prove to be a difficult task for many artists, but not Yoon Hyup. With an intricate eye and a brain buzzing with inspiration, he manages to tie together his traditional Korean roots and contemporary cultural influences into each of his harmonious site-specific paintings. We caught Hyup while he was taking a break from painting his latest mural (right here at S’well HQ) and chatted about his artistic process, finding influence from sounds and skate culture, and what “newness” is up next for the artist.

 

How did you first get started painting? Do you remember your first experience in art?  I never thought I would be an artist or some guy who would be talked about or asked to come paint [somewhere], but creation is something natural for me because I’m always motivated to express myself. I started studying art when I was in high school. I studied graphic art because I really wanted to design skateboards. Skateboarding and music were really big parts of my life growing up. In 2001, when I went to college, I met a lot of DJ and musician friends. A DJ crew wanted me to paint live while he performed his set, a mix hip hop, funk, disco, we’d perform all night. That was when I was 23 or 24 years old, and then I met more and more people, they would learn about me and ask me to do more paintings.

 

S'well interviews artist Yoon Hyup to talk about creative process, influencer, and future plans

Preliminary sketch of the S’well HQ mural.

 

When did you first move to New York?  I first visited New York in 2007, but I’ve lived here since 2010. [Moving here] was really natural because I was really into hip hop and the whole cool culture, like skateboarding, music, and street art and graffiti.

 

When did people start taking notice of your work?  It kind of snowballed, I started in a small town in Seoul, Korea, and then I met more people who liked my work and wanted to collaborate. I’ve collaborated with commercial brands like Nike and Facebook, but it doesn’t mean I’m open to collaborate with everyone. It has to be ‘me’ and it has to feel right to me, so I refuse a lot of brands too. I like doing personal collaborations with my friends and like-minded people and exploring something I’ve never done.

 

How does music influence your art?  My mom wanted me to play the violin, so I played for over 8 years, but I gave it up because I was more into painting. I want my painting to be like music. It’s a little homage to my mom and my childhood. I imagine my paintings as music sometimes. The curve I draw, I imagine like I’m dancing with some kind of music, and the dots represent a rhythm of sound. I listen to a lot of music when I paint, it’s really important.

 

blog_yoon_body2

 

What is your process for picking the color palette when you start a painting?  I think about the layout beforehand, and there are always only 4 colors. The different colors represent different notes, which creates a chord in music. So I always imagine myself as composer of music and pay attention to make 4 colors create harmony.

Usually, the selection of color comes from the Korean primary color, white, black, yellow, blue, red. It’s a traditional color philosophy based on the five cardinal directions: north, east, south, west and the center. This color palette can be found in many things that relate to Korean culture, such as art, dress, and the painting for architecture. I use those colors to pay honor to my roots. I also find other colorways from nature and things around me.

 

What are the signature elements of your painting?  I really think the progression of my painting is really important. Most of my paintings are made freehand. They’re like jazz music where a lot of it is improvisation.

 

Artist Yoon Hyup opens up about his creative process, finding influence and what's next

Work in progress: Hyup painting the S’well HQ mural.

 

What’s the most inspiring city you’ve traveled to?  I really have a lot of places, but recently I visited Northern Spain and created a cityscape there. It was so beautiful. One of my favorite places is especially New York. To me, it’s the best city because New York has a lot of diversity and I can see a lot of art and various cultures.

 

Do you explore any other mediums other than paint?  I always want to take a balance from my brush painting and also try new things. One thing I’ve been trying is woodcarving, so it’s kind of like 3-D sculpture. I really like it. I went on vacation to Miami and I looked up and saw a palm tree in the sky. I went back to the hotel right away and had to draw it, then I made it into a painting and then a woodcarving.

 

Your art has had such an evolution over the years, so what’s next?  I think it could be not even painting, but maybe performance or film. I’m open to experimenting. I really want to try recording my music. Sometimes when I don’t paint, I play drums. I want to paint and play music, I’m not sure, I’m still thinking about the ‘newness’.

S'well interviews the photographer Gray Malin to discuss their latest collaboration

 

S’well’s latest artist collaboration takes you on the trip of a lifetime. Photographer Gray Malin’s limited-edition bottles are a work of art in themselves, epitomizing the desire to make every day a getaway, each image is a visual celebration of the sights of summer. Malin looks at life from a bird’s-eye view: he’s known for going to extreme lengths to capture the serene beach scenes we’ve come to know and love. We got a chance to pick Malin’s brain and talk about everything from humble beginnings to getting the perfect shot, to being an artist in the digital age.

Photos courtesy of Gray Malin

 

How did you get started in photography?  I started taking pictures when I was a teenager and I never really thought of it as a viable career but in college, I pursued it as a second major and never gave up on ‘the dream’. After graduating from college, I moved to LA for a job and thought it was a great opportunity, after one year I left because I knew I had to give photography a chance (my parents thought I was insane). I decided to take out a booth at a Sunday swap-meet in West Hollywood. Though it was a humbling experience, I met so many incredible people in the community and was able to display my work effectively, eventually making a name for myself.

 

Where do you get your inspiration?  I am inspired by so many things, whether it be a trip to the beach, an iconic destination or something as simple as a balloon. Typically, an idea pops into my mind and then I just keep thinking about it until it evolves into reality.

 

What’s your favorite beach you ever photographed?  That is an IMPOSSIBLE question to answer but a few of my favorites are the beaches along Sydney, Australia’s coast (3 of which are featured on our S’well bottles!), Rio de Janeiro’s Ipanema and Cape Town’s Camp’s Bay.

 

S'well interviews photographer Gray Malin about his creative process and his latest collaboration

Malin getting his signature aerial shot from a helicopter

 

What made you decide to take such an adventurous approach to your photography?  From above, the people with their umbrellas and towels create patterns that are eye-catching and unique. It began with the beaches above Miami during Art Basel one year, then I quickly followed up with trips to Australia, Rio, Dubai and Europe. I was hooked!

 

Aerial views seem to be your niche photography style; was there a time before when you experimented with other genres of shooting?  Yes, I have a large collection of conceptual work, which I’ve been building in unison with my aerial photography. For aerial series such as A La Plage & A La Montagne it’s more about capturing the joyfulness of being at the beach for a day of sun or hitting the slopes during your winter holiday. There is no instruction ahead of time, I’m simply flying above these moments and capturing the ones that catch my attention. Whereas, for a series such as Gray Malin at the Parker, I certainly had very specific shots in mind. I pretty much created an entire storyline ahead of time.

 

Who are some of you favorite photographers/artists?  I am a huge admirer of Gaston Ugalde who mentored me during my shoot in Bolivia for my series, Far Far Away. I just adore his whole demeanor and his vision. He’s a true artist. Then, of course, I love Slim Aarons for his timeless and luxurious photographs, Christo and Jeanne-Claude for their forward thinking and structural work, and David LaChapelle for his artistic editorial vision.

 

 

So how do you know when you have the shot?  What I love about photography is composition. The first thing I do is find the balance and then the rest unfolds itself as I shoot.

 

When you go out shooting, what are some essentials you always have on-hand?  Other than my camera, of course, I always have hand & feet warmers with me when shooting in a cold climate and then lots of sunscreen regardless of the temperature.

 

In a world where everything is shared and published digitally, how do you maintain authenticity to your brand and aesthetic?  Once upon a time, the photographer was behind the camera, rarely seen. Nowadays, with social media, people want to relate to you on a more personal level so I find the camera turning on me a bit more which is interesting. Overall, I find social media very helpful because I can interact with the online community in a very positive way. It is a benefit to a brand as long as you remain authentic to your audience.

 

What’s the next travel destination on your bucket list?  As far as bucket list goes, I would love to explore parts of Asia more as well as the Nordic countries.
