Flavor of the Month

I’m just going to go out on a limb here and admit that I’m one of those people who loves a good PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte for the critics who don’t know). It’s more than just a marketing scheme created by Starbucks - I think. Here me out.

Trainer Confessions

Let’s take a minute and think about working out. A little bit of cardio, half-a**ing some abs and then maybe some “stretching” aka sitting on a mat texting — sound about right? Well, you’re not alone. In a world of Cosmopolitan booty challenges and PopSugar 5-minute arms, it’s hard to know what you’re actually working. Five trainers from 
The Denver…

Conquering the Seven Summits with Hemophilia

On the Cover

The September issue in the editorial world is traditionally the biggest production of the year featuring all things fashion. Why one might ask? I sure did, and after digging around, I found the best explanation from good ole Vogue, the encyclopedia of fashion.

Harmony and Peace

There’s an old zen adage that says, “You should sit in meditation for twenty minutes everyday—unless you’re too busy; then you should sit for an hour.” And for me, life was swirling with business; I could barely sit down to check Instagram let alone spend the time meditating. I was past the point of reasonable, normal stress.

Mirage egariM

There’s an undeniable sense of mystery that the desert evokes: its hidden life sprouting from impossible soil, its untouched surface etched like a fingerprint. If you’ve ever sank your toes into the fine-grain terrain of the Great Sand Dunes, you understand this magic that lies in these hills.

Walk the Runway with…

Denver has one of those unique cultures where there’s an eclectic group of people. There’s still a fashion scene, but I think comfort is very important, so that’s something I try to have in all of my clothes. It is also one of those places that feel like home. I’m not originally from here, but I’ve lived here for 20…

The Birth of a Craftsman

From his shop in North Boulder, artist Alexander Giray has made the seamless transition from climbing guide to craftsman. Upon meeting Giray, creator of aptly named Alexander Giray Designs, it is clear to see he is a man who has found his passion; upon seeing his work, you’d assume he’d found that passion a lifetime ago, and that he’d been…

Hair of the Dog

A comment that stuck with me is when a friend visiting from Vancouver pointed out how many dogs there were when taking a stroll around Capitol Hill. I thought ‘well, I guess’ as I grasped onto my two leashes attached to Mimi the lab and Ziix, the cutest pug. If I had to guess, there’s one dog for every human.

eer is typically considered crisp and refreshing. Usually a happy hour steal or a pick your own six-pack and take home kind of deal. But to some, beer is an art. To these local brewers, beer is more than just the meaning behind “let’s crack a cold one.”

In Food We Trust

Lisa Altenburg always found herself immersed in the food service or hospitality industry before she began her professional career in corporate finance.

The Latest Scoop

Flashback to February 1922: Ice cream and soda parlors are all the rage in Chicago.

Rest & Relax

“Summertime and the livin’ is easy” has been on repeat since the summer solstice. It’s my favorite season (a close competitor is fall), and I’m soaking in every carefree moment. I can’t even keep track of all of the ‘out of the office’ emails I’ve gotten this season, but I’m certainly not complaining. It feels like a real summer break.

Making a House a Home

Sheets of worn metal, branches and thin tarps make up the walls. The floor — dirt. No cabinets, couches or closets are in sight. This is the house where the Sanchezes, a family of seven, lived in Nicaragua. This is the house Jessica Northrop helped 
to replace. Northrop, who’s been a realtor in the Denver area for 22 years, embarked…

The Long Way Home

That first roar of the engine starting up the SUV, was a great indicator that I was embarking on an excellent test drive.

Make Your Escape

Walking into the lobby of The Maven, at first you might mistake your surroundings to be anywhere but LoDo’s newest independent hotel. An eclectic art gallery, perhaps? Quirky art installations from Colorado artists are playfully scattered throughout the floor. A hip new bar? The sexy Poka Lola Social Club glows in the distance. If its stylish art deco lines don’t…

For the Fellers

Without a doubt, one of the most attractive things about considering a move to Colorado, from the Midwest, was the abundance of awesome music that comes through the area.
