Autumn Ales are in the Air

September 22nd, 2017

Leaves are crunching beneath your feet, the air’s a little crisper, and you’re dreaming of apple cider and pumpkin pie – Fall is here. Truly my favorite time of year, I couldn’t be more excited to taste some seasonal ales in the Boulder area this Autumn. So, with the help of the amazing team at Hazel’s Beverage World, I went to picking and found some sweet pumpkin and malty local Oktoberfest flavors. Here’s a few that I’d definitely recommend to you seasonal beer lovers:   Pump Action by 4 Noses Brewing Co.: An Imperial Pumpkin Ale that’s sweet... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

February 4th, 2017

I caught Jake at a good time. Not only a momentarily good time, but a good time in life. He says he’s really happy with where he is at right now. His biggest worries at the moment are finding a part time job and keeping up with his schoolwork. On his off days he enjoys playing guitar and taking on whatever challenge life throws his way. Jake hopes his future is filled with lots of travel and new cultural experiences. One day he hopes to relearn Spanish and live in Mexico for a couple of months. Then he hopes to fit New Zealand in sometime too. But for now, Jake said, “Boulder is doing me just... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

February 1st, 2017

Meet Diana. She’s a CU Buff from Westminster, Colorado. After spending five weeks at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia last summer, Diana decided she wanted to attend school somewhere close to home. The humidity alone was enough to send her back to Colorado. She told me she likes to visit home a couple of times every month so she can be with her family… and take advantage of the delicious home cooked meals of course. Diana is now studying to be a graphic designer. In fact, I caught up with her just after she’d finished designing a movie poster in class.  Read More

A Celebration of Love: Boulder Prideweek

September 13th, 2016

This week, we celebrated love. The Boulder Pridefest, held last weekend, wrapped up a week of much needed love and support.  After such a trying year for the LGBTQ community, the city came together to celebrate the freedom to love one another. For Victoria Brozek, a festival goer and self-proclaimed “hella gay participant,” Pridefest is, “inspiring in the way that the community comes together to celebrate different gender identities, relationships, and ways of life.” She adds that, “having [that] support is so important, especially when it may not be coming from other places.” Many... Read More

I just started doing street performances. I’ve been hula hooping for a while now but just started coming to Boulder to perform. You can call me hula hoop girl.  Read More

The Devil is in the Details, but so is the Competitive Advantage

May 8th, 2016

It seems clear that the Boulder business community is notoriously competitive, but what is less clear are the reasons why some businesses survive the competition, while others do not. In order to find the root of such competitive advantages, I spoke with several Boulder business owners and asked them how they have managed to survive the ever-changing community landscape; in the end, one things was clear: detail matters. While many businesses can decrease their costs by changing their financial or operating models, decreasing these costs alone will not be enough to stay open; what owners need is... Read More

The Bubble and Beyond

May 27th, 2015

Boulder is a city and county of many parts. Anyone who lives or visits here can’t help noticing. Within an hour’s drive of downtown you can find everything from hamlets nestled into pine-covered foothills to municipalities threading cottonwood traces, from the pristine vistas of Rocky Mountain National Park to the anchor of the Great Plains spreading eastward. Given that variation, it’s no surprise a host of interests come into play. Businesses—from national corporations to one-off boutiques—have made their home in the region. Industries as diverse as aerospace and recreation find a... Read More

Quick Tip: Reviving Winter Hair

April 4th, 2015

Well, hello, Springtime. Aren’t you a saucy minx. One day we’re sunshine and blossoms, the next we’re a harsh harsh wench hell bent on freezing anything that dared to show it’s pretty floral face. I may or may not be quite bitter about the spat of snow we had this week. Snow. In the words of Cher Horowitz, it’s “a full on Monet.” Sure, from far away it’s beautiful, but up close and personal it’s a big ole mess. I’m not a fan of winter in general. Sure there are lots of “activities” and “fun” and “major heart... Read More

The Most Effective Beauty Product Ever Is Already In Your Home

February 21st, 2015

Truly. Assuming your home is in the first world, which, if you’re spending your free time cruising internet beauty blogs, I think I can safely assume you’re not in extremis, you already have the greatest beauty product ever right there at home: water. Most folks don’t drink nearly enough water. Coloradans probably skew the average with our ever present sport bottles, but even then we’re probably not consuming as much as we should. I may just be speaking for myself. I’ll be honest. In the past, not drinking water was a deliberate time management strategy for me. When I went... Read More

Boulder Block Party: Networking Creativity.

May 13th, 2014

If you’ve ever lived in Boulder then you know it is teeming with enough creativity to place itself as the startup capital of America and serve as home to a number of creative agencies including Match Action, Anthem Branding, Victors & Spoils, TDA_Boulder, School, EVB, and Grenadier. That being said, it’s no surprise that said agencies have organized this weekend’s Boulder Block Party, a networking event for Boulder’s ever-growing creative scene. Thanks to the help of madelife, and other local businesses (Big Red F, Club W, Upslope Brewing Co. and Zyr, to name a few) creative... Read More

The Art of Procrastination

December 13th, 2013

Finals week is upon us here at CU, which means that students all across campus are now utilizing their years of education and highly developed problem solving skills in order to come up with excuses to avoid studying. As a senior, I can safely say that I’ve become an expert on the subject. A black belted master in the art of putting things off, if you will. Heck, I’m even procrastinating right now by writing this blog instead of working on my English portfolio! Now, I would never recommend procrastination to any student. It’s a dark, treacherous road that can lead you to drink... Read More
