Bidding Adieu to the 2016-2017 Ski Season

Ten years ago, if you told me that I would only get ten days on the hill, I would have thought that was a slow two weeks. After logging exactly “zero” days on my pass last year, my stoke level to get ten this year was pretty high.

The Golden Latte

We love trends. Log onto Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter and you’ll see suggestions of ‘in the now’ headlines ranging from political events to the latest Kardashian fad. Some trends are welcomed and revered (hello avocado toast!), while others sit quietly in the corner while we grapple with the idea of pushing them straight out the door (I’ll let you draw…

April 2017 Around Town

For a state that has everything to offer, it’s amazing that we still hear those two dreaded words from our kids, “I’m bored!” Well, guess what? We’ve got a remedy for that this summer. Community Sailing of Colorado offers an incredible series of summer camps for kids ages 5-17 in Boulder and Denver. Learn to Sail, Intermediate, Advanced, and even…

Hold Your Horses for Derby Days

Much like our Publisher likes to throw a good party, we'll take any excuse to pull together a styled shoot. In anticipation of the upcoming fifth-annual Boulder Lifestyle Derby Days, we got to do just that. Insert design and style dream team from La Dolce Events, Todd Reed and two of our favorite local boutiques, Willow and Eleanor and Hobbs…

Mobility for Life

This situation isn’t rare. Perhaps you’re recovering from surgery, and the doctor says you can’t drive yourself to your appointment. Maybe your mother had a fall and needed help getting her prescriptions, but you work when the pharmacy is open. If you or someone you know is simply unable to drive, Via Mobility Services offers a level of independence we…

The Calm Between Control and Chaos

Opting for trowels, scrapers and knives, artist Peter Burega’s abstract expressionism of moments in places are precisely textured pieces that inspire feelings of strange wistfulness, where the exactitude of the plot is scaled back by the mercurial nature of each picture.

A Nourishing Practice

Achieving physical fitness so often has a rigorous connotation. We often feel like if we aren’t pushing our bodies to their physical limits and beyond, we aren’t working hard enough to get to that pinnacle of optimal health. Even yoga, an activity many turn to for relaxation and relief, often has this extreme sport slant and competitive edge.

Roots Run Deep

From humble beginnings in small ski town bars to consistently selling out Red Rocks Amphitheater, The String Cheese Incident continues to reinvent themselves as they roll into their twenty-sixth year as a band. After forming in Crested Butte in 1993, the buzz around SCI on the Western Slope quickly spread to the front range. On December 11, 1994 the band…

Do Just 5 Things

For those who have a yard or garden, having a personal compost bin has a lot of benefits. Why give all that yummy plant food to the city when it could nourish your plants at home? However, composting can be a little trickier for apartment dwellers. For Boulder residents, curbside compost pickup is completely free of cost, and all you…

Reviving a Vision

You’re staring into the program, pen in hand, trying to decide how to fit hundreds of hours of ideas and intellect into your schedule of just five short days. It’s a dilemma every Boulderite has experienced as the array of flags are raised around CU’s campus each spring. The event promises to bring a world of thought leaders together in…

Forest in Fourmile Canyon

Call it a company’s social responsibility or a personal desire to affect change in the environment, but, no matter what, on April 22, Earth Day, Joshua Onysko, founder of Pangea Organics, and a team of up to 500 people are going to stick 20,000 trees in the ground.

IN THE STUDIO OF

In 2016, The Color Bureau was born, a brand design and social change concept founded by illustrator, paint slinger and brand designer Neil Mackay. When first opening the yellow door to Boulder Creative Collective’s space, I was greeted by a few pups and hung paintings that made a pathway to Neil's creative space with “The Color Bureau” proudly visible by…

Simply Wildcraft

Tori Fleming is the woman behind local catering company Wildcraft Kitchen. Educated in herbal nutrition, Fleming decided to branch out a year ago and start her own business. The name is fitting considering the dictionary definition of wild·craft /ˈwīldkraft/ (verb) is to gather herbs, plants and fungi from the wild. That's precisely what Fleming strives to do with each recipe…

Bringing the Outdoors In

When building a home, most families focus on the great indoors. But when the Timbos built their Boulder home, the outdoors were equally important. “Being outdoors is incredibly important to us, and offering green space for us all to play was a priority,” says Sue Timbo. In fact, when the Timbos met with their architect, Brad Burch of Index AD,…
