This full moon takes place on Friday the 13th and is ruled by Jupiter the planet of expansion and abundance. It is also a very dreamy full moon. With Virgo season we are doing a lot of work to move our dreams forward. With Virgo opposing Neptune it is a great full moon for being dreamy as well. While action helps us makes our dreams come to fruition, it is also important to line up psychically with what we want to manifest in our lives.read more

I am so excited to share this month’s Inspired Women post of my dear bestie, Mary Allison Wright. There is nothing quite like watching your friends step into their creativity, their power, and the fullest expression of who they are. That is the honor I have had of witnessing first hand with Mary’s ambitious growth and establishment into the wine world and beverage community. Mary’s passion is undeniable and her attention to learning and perfecting her craft has been an inspiration to me and those that know her. But the most inspiring thing about Mary is how she...
This summer I have been focusing on nutrition and exercise. Which means I decided to finally make a real effort to meal plan my work lunches more. It saves me time, money and helps me keep my nutrition on point. I still allow myself a lunch out during the week to catch up with a friend or grab my favorite BYO poke bowl, but this lunch packing system has really making bringing my own lunch fun, easy and stylish. Built NY has a various collection of lunch bags, and they are my favorite that I found when shopping for my bag. I mean, if I am going to pack my lunch,...
One of my big summer goals this year is to go on more day hikes on the weekend. Colorado’s mountains are an endless playground and living in downtown Denver, I am at the gateway of so many trails. Part of my strategy for actually waking up on a Sunday and hitting the trails instead of brunch is keeping my day pack well-stocked and ready to go.
If you want glowy, hydrated and youthful-looking skin this summer then you're going to want to keep reading. Today I'm sharing my five go-to products for glowy summer skin. If you are new around here, I want to note that all of these items are all clean beauty products. That means they don't contain any of those yucking ingredients like parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, or other toxic chemicals. Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator | Healthy skin starts with hydration. That means be sure to drink lots of water but I think to use this hydrating accelerator as a...
I’m excited to share this power smoothie with you all. This is my go to pre-workout smoothie these days. I have always been a big fan of eating a banana before a workout. It’s easy energy and never makes me nauseous during a workout, which some fruits and nut butters seem to do.read more
Do not underestimate the value of the wisdom you receive this cycle simply because it comes into your life quietly. As you walk through this often confusing existence, it can be so easy to mistake glamor for beauty and noise for knowledge, but now you have a precious opportunity to turn away from the edges and toward the center of it all, to the places that bring you comfort, and peace, and calm.read more
Summer may be winding down, but canned wine is here to stay - which means there's no reason to put the rosé away after Labor Day. With so many cute cans of wine to choose from these days, I had no choice but to sample the gamut before hosting gals' night on the patio and share my take on the top five. All of these porch pounders would pair divinely with our watermelon salad and a snack of green olives. Looking to take on a whole meal? Throw some turkey burgers on the grill and voilà! You have dinner. (Fun fact: did you know that canned wine is actually two...read more

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - pizza is the answer, year-round, rain or shine. And with an abundance of ripening Palisade peaches at my local farmers' market, I couldn't resist combining the two for a sweet and savory dinner recipe atop my favorite gluten-free pizza canvas: Capello’s Naked Pizza Crust (first tested on this to-die-for fall version last year). This recipe is especially great for summer when you don't need a heavy, saucy dinner weighing you down. There's no tomato sauce involved - just a bounty of fresh ingredients that quell an...read more
We are in the heat of Denver summer, which means it's time to bust out some cute shorts. Bodysuits are equally hot this summer it seems, and I love how well this one from n:philanthropy (similar) lays with shorts, without the bother of trying to keep a t-shirt tucked in. This darling pair of striped linen shorts from Rails has the sweetest belt to be tied in a bow. Top it all off with a neutral statement necklace (this one from David Aubrey is actually reversible) and some Dolce Vita espadrilles! Shop these pieces and more at Ella Blu online and get free...read more
