We packed our bags and took #TEAONTHEROAD to Austin, Texas for the last four days of July. For what feels like years now, we’ve been throwing around the idea of a pop-up shop. We did some research and decided that Austin could be the perfect place to try out this concept. As long time fans of TOMS, we reached out and pitched the idea of setting up shop in their backyard on South Congress for a back-to-school event… you can only imagine how thrilled we hear they were on board!
So, for the first time ever, we took Tea on the road. We packed as much as we could into those four days, and man was it worth it. It was hot, we all were sweaty, but a wonderful time was had by all. From those rainy first days of set-up to the rush of customers that very first morning, #TEAONTHEROAD was full of surprises and we loved every minute of it.
Here, we share a special look at just what happened in Austin. We wish you all could have been there… And we can’t wait to hear where you think we should go next!
Meet Marya, our latest Foreign Correspondent who traveled with her family through Japan this past spring. Here, she shares a personal story of their experience and how they all fell in love with Japan again, on their second trip there as a family.
My husband and I often visited Mexico as a young couple before we had children. The sights, sounds, smells and adventures in Mexico are unlike anything else. We have always longed to take our own children to this special place as a family one day. We recently started taking family trips to Mexico. It’s not an incredibly long travel day, but we’re still able give them a foreign experience with new food, language, currency and experiences like no other. Mexico holds a special place in our hearts. Bringing our own kids there to see what we love was incredible and valuable. On this particular trip we traveled to Mismaloya, a small town south of Puerto Vallarta. It is actually the same town where my husband proposed to me, several years ago.
The first flickering firefly on a summer’s night. Sunny breezes through an open car window. Catching melting ice cream on your tongue. The scrunch of warm sand between your toes. We found magic when we traveled to Italy in search of inspiration for our summer collection – Whether your little citizens’ adventures take your family to the beach or the backyard, we know they’ll find (and make) magic wherever they go. And we’re making it easy for you to shop for all of summers’ adventures with our outfits below!
Late last year, my sister was awarded the International Affairs Fellowship from the Council on Foreign Affairs, which required her to relocate to Tokyo for the immediate future. The whole family decided to take advantage of her overseas assignment and in March, we arrived in Japan seeking a cultural experience though food and fellowship.
