HOMEMADE HOLIDAYS

Here at Boulder Lifestyle we love to support our local businesses, they are the heartbeat of the city. That's why when we decided to do a DIY feature we teamed up with some of our favorites and they created a special project just for our readers. There's something thoughtful for everyone in the handmade holiday how to.

Cookies & Cocktails

Bring to a boil eight cups of water. Add 16 chai tea bags; turn off stove; secure the lid with the tea bag tabs hanging outside and steep 10 minutes. Remove the tea bags. Stir in 1/2 cup each spiced rum and vanilla-flavored vodka and 2 cinnamon sticks. Cover and cook on low for 2 hours. Stir in 2 cups…

Farm-To-Cup

No matter how busy life gets, especially around the holidays, there is one thing that is guaranteed to slow the world down, even if it’s just for 20 minutes: a piping hot, perfectly aromatic cup of coffee. Unfortunately, more often than not, people drink their cups of Joe without consideration for the process that is put into their to-go mugs.…

WINTER 
HIDEAWAY

A modern cabin tucked alongside a remote alpine lake, this home functions as a refreshing weekend getaway. Built on one-and-a-half acres at 9,000-foot elevation in the Rockies, this Boulder County home is a direct result of the collaboration between Arch11 and Hammerwell Incorporated. The home was designed to feel intimate yet still be able to comfortably accommodate extra guests.

Labor Of Love

Stoic & Genuine, Infinite Monkey, Lon Little Shop, Finkel & Garf – I’m actually not just listing off your favorite shops and restaurants in Denver and Boulder. This list contains places around town where you have unknowingly admired the work of Denver-based furniture makers/designers from Fin Art Co. And that was just the tip of the list.

Artist Profile Bill Snider

Kinetic, layered and graphic elements is how Boulder-based artist Bill Snider describes his work that can be viewed at Art & Soul Gallery on Pearl Street and even in several galleries in New Zealand, where he spends part of the year. With Bill Snider Studios in two parts of the world, “everything” can be a source of inspiration.

Revel With A Cause

Looking to buy a gift that keeps on giving? Consider purchasing a product that gives back this holiday season. We’ve cultivated a variety of charitable presents that help promote change in the world. Here’s where to find them!

ALL SPRUCED UP

Hotel restaurants typically get overlooked by a city’s residents. For one, locals may not know about the eateries because they retire to their own homes rather than to a hotel room. And for another, hotel food doesn’t exactly have a sparkling, must-try reputation. For those reasons, you may not have heard of Spruce Farm & Fish, housed in the historic…

Making Money Sustainable

MYTHBUSTERS More and more investors have heard the terms social, sustainable, impact or ESG (environment, social and governance) investing. Too many investors are still on the sidelines because of myths that have not yet been fully dispelled. It’s time to clear the air and get with the investing trend.

Boulder Country Day Annual Gala

The BCD Gala and Auction is the major social and fundraising event of the year for the Boulder Country Day School community. Parents, faculty and staff enjoyed an evening of fine dining and great entertainment while raising funds to enhance the school’s programs. Photography Mike Oliver

Wellness & Wellbeing

Boulder is a place where people value balance. This could be balance between a multitude of life’s aspects: their work, play, home life, relationships and health. Or simply their overall wellbeing, and any other factor in their multifaceted lives. People strive to find this balance in a variety of ways, whether it be through yoga, hiking, biking to work happy…

Shelf Living

Take a journey to Consilience, a social experiment offering homes and jobs after a financial catastrophe causes an economic meltdown. Participants alternate months in their suburban utopias with months spent in prison. Atwood’s first stand-alone novel in 10 years doesn’t shy away from morality, ethics and desire.

Do Just One Thing

We make thousands of decisions everyday from where to park on Pearl Street to what we are going to make for dinner. Not every decision we make throughout our day or week can be life changing but there are certain decisions that can leave a lasting effect on people's lives. During the hustle and bustle of this busy season, we…

THE HOLIDAYS 
WITH DAVE QUERY

1. The Essential Scratch & Sniff Guide To Becoming a Whiskey Know-It-All by Richard Betts. Boulder dweller R. Betts has done it again with his newest book. Makes a great gift for anyone who loves good brown spirits and wants to learn more.

Joy!

With the holiday season in full swing, I often reminisce to family traditions we had while growing up. Christmas brunch at my parents was always a highlight, as my mom would cook a huge feast of all our favorites. The only downfall was that I had to beg and plead for a reasonable amount of frosting on the cinnamon rolls.…
