Trick or Treat

October has been, and will always be, my favorite month. A large part of this has to do with the silliest holiday of all time, Halloween. Each year my five-year-old self is resurrected all month long, and the vibrant feelings of excitement still haven’t left my soul.

Gravel Grinding

Somewhere on the cycling spectrum—between road biking, cyclocross, cross-country trail riding and amongst the population of spandex-clad riders—lives “gravel grinding.” In this genre of riding, cyclists choose routes that incorporate mountain and county roads, terrain with loose dirt or rockier features and gravel roads that could include any size of gravel and rock.

Know Just 5 Things

First, it was açai, then kale and now matcha is the name of the game. But what is this new, superfood craze turning long-time coffee drinkers to tea? Since matcha means “powdered tea” one will consume the entire leaf, which is impossible when drinking steeped, loose leaf tea. Its unique form provides a bevy of nutrients, vitamins, antioxidants and more…

Picnic Picks

I bet you’re expecting a pun. Now that we’ve fallen out of summer and into autumn (punderful), put your picnic basket in one hand and your pumpkin spice in the other because al fresco dining isn't over yet. Sunny fall days are perfect for tailgates, tapas and toddies. All of this lies ahead before we cruise into the famed Colorado…

Olympian Pride

Off the Wall

Fall is so beautiful in Colorado, and it gently guides us into a new season of fashion. It offers up the chance to change our wardrobe and personal style. Although fashion and interior design go hand-in-hand, the role our own personal style plays in how we design the very space we live in is often overlooked. Our walls can emulate…

Chef’s Special

After many months of waiting, we finally had a good excuse to break out the butcher paper. Why you may ask? Because Blackbelly converts into a venue by night, and what could be more fitting for a table runner at a butcher shop?

Curating Colour

Here’s something that’s a bit lovely, infusing interior design with personal styling and colour theory.

After living in Los Angeles, New York and studying…

Into the Wild

In 2008, Land Rover and Jaguar—historically an on-again, off-again pairing—merged once again, and it seems, this time around, there is more than just lot space being shared. No doubt, this most recent merger has inspired Jaguar to extend beyond the sports car and utilize shared technology to release the F-PACE. Jag enthusiasts that have been propelling the idea of an…

Life of Luxury

A luxury residential and recreational estate and polo farm, built in 2004, is on the market. Luscious green fields bordered by towering, century-old trees, the Ashlawn property rests at the base of Haystack Mountain, only 10 minutes from the heart of downtown Boulder and 40 minutes from Denver.

Autumn, that magical time of year when pumpkin everything has returned, the air is crisp and cool and whistles blow and crowds cheer with the return of football. Indicative of fall nights on the couch cozily engrossed in the game, the return of football is—at its heart—an enthralling annual tradition.

Keep Calm

In our July issue we called for young makers to submit their creative work, along with their source of inspiration. Thirteen-year-old Elliote Muir submitted a short story partially based on a real-life experience. When Elliote’s not writing, she likes to be outside, mountain bike, ski, hike and paddle board. Here’s a short story we’re sure other Boulderites can relate to…

IN THE GEAR BAG OF…

Nikon D800 - This camera is a resolution monster that does extremely well in low-light without breaking the bank. It’s also light enough and small enough to carry while cycling, climbing and running—so as long as you have the proper bag for it.
