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.

Healing Waters

Visiting Colorado’s hot springs resorts has always been a source of fun between my family and friends. It’s a place to play, a place to celebrate and a place to mingle; but for centuries, people have flocked to natural hot springs for something more than just a fancy vacation activity—to bathe in its healing waters. I wanted to test this…

How to Pack a Bowl

You may notice more Poke (it’s pronounced POH-keh) restaurants popping up than build-your-own-burrito bars. It’s basically the food trend of 2017 and the next gen of sushi. Here’s why we’re on board with this traditional Hawaiian dish: first and foremost, it’s healthy. These bowls are full of good fats sourcing Omega-3 from the fatty fish, avocados and nori. Omega-3 helps…

DO I NEED A [DIGITAL] DETOX?

From a very early age, my life began to be structured by technology. When the TV announced “Live! From Studio 1A in Rockefeller Plaza!” I knew I was in trouble. The Today Show meant it was 7 o’clock and I’d better run as fast as I can if I was going to catch the school bus. Nowadays, that framework seems…

Ready, Set, Go!

For beginners, a 5k (3.1 miles) or a 10k (6.2 miles) is normally the first thing you decide to tackle. But that doesn’t mean the race is any easier. Paxton Smith, a sophomore University of Colorado runner, says taking care of yourself before a run is crucial to seeing good performance. Smith says getting a good night’s sleep, eating a…

Lucky for us, Fabricate has shared step-by-step instructions for a costume DIY that you can actually do yourself.

early detection

Breast cancer today is just as prevalent, if not more so than it’s ever been. According to the American Cancer Society, over 250,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be or have already been diagnosed in women in 2017. The good news, however, is that there are over three million breast cancer survivors in the United States alone. With…
