Colorado Christmas Tree Hunting

December 13th, 2018

Christmas is right around the corner and if you haven’t bought a tree yet I would like to offer up a cheaper and much more eco-friendly alternative. Now, this isn’t to detract from any other major religious holiday but if you celebrate Christmas and you don’t have a tree yet then this article is for you.   What if I told you that you could help mitigate the risk of forest fires here in Colorado and get a Christmas tree for anywhere from $5 – $20? Now, you will have to head out into the National forest of Colorado and cut it yourself, but you can pick just about any tree you find.... Read More

Christmas Break!

December 16th, 2016

Finals are over and its almost time for Christmas! This year CU has a slightly longer Christmas vacation than previous years. We have an entire month off this time, we go back to school January 17th. Having a whole month off sounds fab because I hate doing school work and love sleeping in and just hanging out all day. It’s also the last time that I will have this amount of time off to just do nothing before I have to enter the real world at the end of second semester. However, when I think about it, one month is a really long time when you have nothing planned, so I’ll have to keep myself busy.... Read More

Christmas Weekend Nightlife

December 24th, 2015

It’s Christmas Eve. Halls are decked, carolers are taking to the streets and families are celebrating their traditions. For those who do not celebrate the holiday, hopefully today still comes as a brief reprieve from work.  If you find yourself out on the town, looking for something to do this eve, you can always head to downtown Boulder. The Dark Horse Bar and Grill is having a Karaoke night this Christmas Eve.  They are featuring pints of Odells for $4.00 and Smirnoff vodka, flavored or plain for $3.00. Go sing your heart out, let loose the performer within. As stockings are stuffed and wrapping... Read More

Boulder’s Controversial Holiday Decoration: Flagstaff Star

December 23rd, 2015

If you’ve spent an evening in Boulder since November 11, then you have noticed the giant, lighted star outline on the western face of the Flatirons. What you might not know is how one simple holiday tradition became a hotly contested issue for Boulder citizens, and a medium of political commentary. The Flagstaff Star was originally displayed in 1947 but the Boulder Chamber of Commerce, who still own the start to this day. It was meant as a simply Christmas decoration aimed at uniting Boulder in the spirit of the holiday. The next year, the star began to transform. Shifting between a Christmas... Read More

Find Your Christmas Tree the Old Fashioned Way

December 17th, 2015

“The most wonderful time of year” right? Shopping malls, crowded parking lots, traffic, long lines, people who have seem to forgotten the joy of the season.  I love this time of year but sometimes Christmas gets too commercial, too much about spending money. Every magazine, blog, and “community” news piece is centered around listing the perfect gift ideas for the countless people in your life. Wouldn’t it be better to actually spend some time doing something with those people? We all have so much stuff. It weighs us down. Why not make a memory rather than make them... Read More

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things: Aspen Vape Pen

December 24th, 2014

The holiday season is at its peak! Feasts are being prepared, fires are being stoked, and stoners are gathering for drinks & a festive toke! Excuse my lyrical words, as I simply couldn’t resist! I am writing to you from my living room where kittens are sleeping, the Christmas tree glowing, and Dr. Suess’ The Grinch is playing in the background. When you put aside the termites in his smile and the garlic in his soul, The Grinch truly knew what was up! Whilst stealing the roast beast, he also snagged the last can of who hash! Hash has been a consistent trend in the past 40 years.... Read More

A Touch of Green This Holiday Season

December 18th, 2014

Christmas and the surrounding holiday season can truly be a magical time filled with snow, family, scrumptious food, sweaters your mom still makes for you every year (even though you’re 35 and it’s a bit weird now), roaring fireplaces and general warm, cozy goodness. However, the weeks leading up to this warm, cozy goodness are not quite as comfortably endearing. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the shear materialism of the holiday season, you’re not alone. It seems as though everyone has lists of gift requests, ribbons, bows, bags, wrapping paper, trees, ornaments,... Read More

Last Minute Christmas Gifts for all Travel Lovers

December 17th, 2014

1: Lush “Travel Friendly” Products:toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, and body washes, you name it, they have it. Before any long-trip (any trip over two weeks) I march straight to Lush to stock up on their life-changing travel-catered beauty products. They have several different options for solid or goo-like beauty products for each and every skin and hair type. They even have travel tins to put your products in, and wah lah! No liquid fussing when you go through security and bam, you smell like roses. *Each tin full of shampoo or conditioner is good for 30 washes! The toothpaste is... Read More

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things: Mary’s Medicinals Patches

December 17th, 2014

Hair down to my bum, personally altered Grateful Dead t-shirts, bare feet. Fast forward ten years to a shoulder length bob, lace dresses, and heeled boots. If fifteen-year-old Emma Devine did not scream “I love marijuana!” I don’t know what does. I’ve developed into a young woman working in the publishing world and frankly, I can’t show up to editorial meetings looking like I just put down my neighbors bong. In Boulder there is no need to be hush-hush about my cannabis rituals but once I leave the “Boulder Bubble” the story changes.  Much like my toned down hippie garb, sometimes... Read More

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things: Mountain High Suckers

December 10th, 2014

There aren’t many things that I love more than candy and Christmas stockings. This year being the first holiday season with legal cannabis in Colorado, I expect Boulder resident stockings will be hung by the fire, stuffed with edible and smokeable marijuana treats! There is one treat in particular which I am hoping to find in my green knit stocking this year, and that is a Mountain High Sucker. Peppermint, cinnamon, lemon lime, oh my! Whether you prefer, berry, citrus, or butterscotch, Mountain High Sucker has a flavor for you. These lollipops don’t just pack a delicious flavor, but... Read More

‘Tis The Season…(Poem)

December 6th, 2014

This blog normally talks about concerts that are coming up, albums that should be checked out and listened to multiple times, as well as my passionate interest in the culture of Hip Hop. This time slot is also, however, an entertainment blog and so I would like to do something different yet again with this article entry tonight and try to entertain you. Well, entertain you but also make you think and maybe gain some perspective you may not know but will certainly plant some kind of seeds that grow and give you new thoughts to ponder on. I have been writing for most of my life, and I have been writing... Read More

A Brief, Chaotic History of the Flagstaff Star

November 19th, 2014

Imagine, getting back from a long day in Denver. It’s cold, it’s dark, and there’s some minor evening traffic. Then, you ascend the final hill towards Boulder, and you’re greeted by the bright shape of a star on the mountains. That’s the moment I wait for every November. During Veteran’s Day last week, the star began its annual winter residency in Boulder. The star is an important symbol, and no Boulder winter is complete without the giant glowing shape on Flagstaff Mountain. It provides a little extra light in a season when days are shorter and nights... Read More
