VISUAL PODCAST #1 : ALEX BERGER / VISUAL ARTISTS
To learn more about visual podcasts and this week’s series, please read our blog post - link in bio.
Visual podcast #1 comes from 7x7 founder, @alexbergerphotography and is a collaboration with Nashville artist, @creativ_ty. Each day this week, we’ll present a portrait of an artist by Alex, combined with a piece of their artwork into a double exposure by Ty.
Olasubomi Aka-Bashorun is from Lagos, Nigeria, grew up in Oklahoma and has been living in Nashville since 2012. He creates with all sorts of mediums including, oil, acrylic, stained glass, ceramics, graphite, and occasionally metal work. I asked Ola how he’s seen Nashville’s art community change since 2012. “When I moved here it was very secluded and isolated to one or two areas, but in the last year or two it has progressed to several different parts. Individuals are creating groups and creative meetups and working together to make the art community grow - and it’s working!”
Finally, I asked Ola how he feels about collaborations across media like this project for 7x7. “I think it’s fantastic I’m excited how it turns out. It wasn’t to long ago that the fine art world refused to consider photography as visual art. And know I don’t know how it cannot be. Its fantastic.”

Are you a self-professed plant killer? Friend, that is A-OK! Because I've been there, done that, bought the t-shirt.
I'm here to tell you that you can totally do the plant parent thing. If I can do it, you can do it. Pinky promise.
If you've been considering jumping on the houseplant bandwagon, think about starting with a cactus or succulent. They're super low maintenance and simply require lots of light and minimal water.
Our cacti and succulents are on a shelf by an east-facing window. This means they get tons of direct sunlight in the morning, which is ideal because the sun is less harsh in the morning (that summer afternoon sun can sometimes be too harsh for our beloved houseplants). I water them once a week in the spring/summer and every other week in fall/winter.
See? Easy peasy! You totally got this. Questions? Shoot us a DM! We'd love to answer your questions and help you figure out what plant may suit you and your style best.

✖️Tonight’s team calls were inspired by this workout + current life struggles✖️ I’m going through some things in my life which is why I’ve been a little more quiet on here—but I’m still showing up! And i always will 🤸🏾♀️ I’m so thankful that my job is to work on me first and foremost & when i go through some shit i don’t have to fake the funk or show up to an office. I get to work on my terms and i worked hard to get here—I’ve faced many obstacles & I’m still here and now have this freedom & i can’t keep that to myself 🙏🏽 working out while the dogs were in my way just got me thinking about obstacles 🐾 whether it be a cute fluff butt or some real shit we will have some people or events or both that challenge us that will make us want to retreat—that’s when you should LEAN IN—it’s through those challenges that you get better and stronger. 💪🏽 so if you’re also fighting a battle—don’t give up, keep persevering, you got this!!!!
BEHIND THE SONG - 08 THE TIMES WHEN •
I never expected this song to be on the album. It’s a part of a trilogy of songs (the first two are on my EP Casino Sessions) written after I went through a breakup. This was the moving on song, the “I’m stronger now because of this” song. While recording this album my producer wanted to use this song and I trusted his judgement. We rewrote half of the song and completely changed the arrangement. It became one of my favorites on the record and I love playing it live. ☀️🌙
Listen to the rest of this song and all of Fire & Ice at the link in my bio!
So excited to share the album cover for my upcoming album with you!!!! It will be available for sale at CountryFest and Super Spike before it hits the shelves digitally and will be available for shipping 🤗
"Pull It Off" has been years in the making and I can't wait to share it with you! YAY!!! And this album cover has been complete just waiting to be shared!! YAY X2!
Got our team necklaces in the mail today for our leaders 💪🏽😻 omg aren’t they so cute? so, why TEAM IGNITE YOUR PASSION? It started because when I started my coaching journey the small flickering flame inside me turned into a burning fire 🔥 I went from being sad/anxious/depressed and bored to being fulfilled, ALIVE & passionate. It feels REALLY good to go from being fearful and dispassionate about the future to being EXCITED ✨💥 & you know how when you found something that’s completely turned your life around & you can’t keep it to yourself? It’s my calling to create a community of other women who want to wake up, set themselves free, and be a part of a movement of wellness and elevating eachother 🌿 #IGNITEYOURPASSION#TIYP
