Casa Cielo - our house in the sky. A small glass home built illegally on top of an apartment building in downtown Vallarta was the birthplace of the brand Scout & Catalogue. Here I learned to slow down, cook veggie burger patties from scratch, conjugate Spanish verbs and dye fabrics. When friends would visit we hosted them in a tent next to the gas tanks and warned them of the overly frisky iguana's that roamed the rooftop. We drank light beers and strong margaritas. Once a cockroach flew into my hair and it felt like time stopped.
This was my home during the two years I lived in Mexico - a country that inspired me with it's passion, colours and pace. I am forever grateful for my experiences living on Mexican time.
