Self Care Sunday Series

March 17th, 2018

Self care may be the most important concept to overall health and wellness. Now the community in Boulder, CO has another opportunity to care for their body and mind, while incorporating cannabis, mindfulness, and activities that promote growth and self love. Once a month, You Canna Be Well is hosting Self Care Sundays at the Phil Lewis Art Gallery and Studio. Each class will have its own theme, or focus, and will encourage participants to practice self care. I had the pleasure of attending the very first of these Self Care Sundays, which was Defining Your Purpose for 2018. The goal of the event... Read More

5 Great Rock Climbing Spots in Boulder

March 14th, 2018

Boulder residents are nothing if not adventurous, and with a slew of jagged peaks, soaring canyons, and other beautiful natural features just begging to be conquered, rock climbing is a popular pastime. We found five great places to get in a killer climb for those adventurous spirits. 1.  Eldorado Canyon Eldorado Canyon, a state park just south of Boulder, offers hundreds of routes up 700-foot cliffs. Climb along south-facing routes in the springtime, and beat the heat in the summer by finding shaded routes. This park can get crowded on weekends, so go early to get your climb on! 2. The Flatirons You’ve... Read More

River and Woods

March 13th, 2018

Once upon a time, I asked my coworker err, woodsmen, about his favorite place to eat in Boulder. “You must go to River and Woods,” he chimes in. His bearded smile grows talking about the delicious food, classy atmosphere, and exceptionally reasonable price for the quality of the meal. So, I pack my basket and I am on my way. Over the river and through the woods to 2328 Pearl St. Boulder I go. I arrive at grandma’s house. Foolishly realizing it is a popular place and in hind sight I should have called to say I was coming. They were able to seat me though, as it was only a Wednesday night.   I... Read More

Voice and Sight: Pros and Cons

March 13th, 2018

As winter gives way to spring, the heat is slowly returning to the Colorado front range, and that means that Boulder residents are returning to their favorite warm weather past times. For many, this means going out hiking with their dogs in tow. Boulder is home to hundreds of canine companions, and it’s no strange occurrence to come across proud pet owners and their pups on the popular trials near town. To many outdoor enthusiasts, it’s also a great opportunity to let their dogs loose to romp in nature. The legality of such a practice can be blurry, which is where a dog tag, normally called... Read More

All the Good Bites and Beets

March 6th, 2018

A simple google search brought me to 3303 30th St, in Boulder. I gave Blooming Beets a chance, and in return they opened up a menu of opportunities to me. I finally felt a love for food all thanks to them. It is one of the few places I have found that is a paleo only restaurant; I was endeared to it on this aspect alone. Then, throw in the fact that they can do an AIP menu on request, proudly display who they get their food from, are completely gluten and grain free, and support local vendors, I wanted to forever be bragging about Blooming Beets. I will rave to friends, family, and the internet... Read More

Trail Review: First and Second Flatirons

February 21st, 2018

Boulder is famous for the majestic sandstone flatirons jutting from the mountainside above the town. Most people probably know that you can hike these soaring monoliths. The first and second flatiron trail is one of the most popular in Boulder County, climbing 2.7 miles through rocky debris and pine forests to sit among the boulders for which the city is named. Our Ratings: Crowd: 2/5. This is a very busy trail. On fair days and weekends you’ll be following a steady stream of other hikers up and down the mountain. Even at sunrise and during the winter the trail is well populated. If you’re... Read More

Poking Around Pekoe

February 20th, 2018

I set out for the laziest hike I think I may have ever done to date. But, before I hit the mountains, I stopped in at Pekoe, on 1125 18th St, in Boulder. You will love the lightning fast service, friendly staff, and easy on the eye architecture. The soft neutral colors, make for a relaxing environment. The booths are lovely to lounge in. I also thoroughly enjoyed the large low hanging lights. On a longer afternoon, I could see myself perusing what seemed to be almost a hundred different options for tea and coffee.  The simple set up is completed with timeless light wood, oodles of natural light... Read More
