Friday Five: Drifter Organics

Designer profile Q+A:
Drifter Organics

Happy Friday! We are featuring Micaela and Dawn of Oakland-based natural beauty brand Drifter Organics.

1. Daily ritual? Going on walks.
Our dog, Aubrey, holds us accountable to getting outside, rain or shine.

2. Best creative (or business) advice?
Don't be afraid to start. Oftentimes, we never start a business/job/project/etc. because we're afraid of failing, but in most cases, we'll never fail so badly we can't pick ourselves up again and start over.

3. Current inspiration sources?
Podcasts, books, and other entrepreneurs who are out there killing it!

4. Favorite podcast(s)?
Oh, such a good question because we love podcasts!

  1. Happier with Gretchen Rubin

  2. Glowing Up

  3. One Part Podcast

  4. Jen Gotch is OK... Sometimes

  5. mindbodygreen podcast

5. How does your city influence your work?
We just moved to Oakland, so we're soaking up all that Oakland has to offer! Oakland is often overshadowed by San Francisco, but the city is full of art, culture, and people doing amazing things. We love to sit in coffee shops and people watch. The other day, Micaela met someone who was filming a vlog at the farmers' market. We love making creative connections by simply striking up conversations—the creative energy is infectious and inspires us to put our creations out into the world.
