Our resident spirituality expert- Rory Luna McMahan uses, The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit Deck to unleash our inner truth. The Deck: There are a lot of animal spirit decks out there to choose from, and while they can be fun to use, many miss the mark on truly connecting with deeper insight into the situation at hand. Others can often feel appropriative or trite, linking into just enough common sense to seem knowledgeable yet somehow not truly opening the transformative spaces we seek. But Kim Krans, in her mesmerizingly mysterious wild ways, brings all the...read more

With this current lunar cycle being ripe with change, it’s important to take some time with comfort food and close girlfriends to nourish your spirit. I suggest a ladies night-in with wine and cookies, which gives me the opportunity to introduce you to my favorite gluten-free chocolate chip cookie recipe using browned melted butter.
Last Saturday I welcomed some of my dearest friends and collectors to celebrate my newly expanded studio space at Ironton Distillery’s Artist Studios. Expect to see a lot of new pictures and in-process moments in this new art studio this summer, as I have a large new project that I am looking forward to starting soon. And let’s just say this: I plan on using every inch of this new studio to make this project come to life.
I am thrilled to share with you this month's Inspired Women profile with you on Natacha Vilson, founder of Social Enlite.

Natacha is a New Yorker now living in LA who is passionate about healthy living and sustainability and I admire how both of those things come through in her work. I had the pleasure of meeting Natacha when I attended the...
Eating gluten-free on vacation can sometimes be a challenge. But with a little planning, I find it is always doable. And if you are like me, staying away from gluten also ensures a better vacation all around, because who wants to be in pain when they are on vacation? Here is my guide to the best Gluten Free Apres Ski options for Aspen and Snowmass. There are more options for dinner and on the slope, (Cloud Nine is legendary in Aspen Highlands) but this list is sure to crave your hunger needs and then some after an epic day on the slopes. Also to note, my...
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
Working with oracle decks always provides such an opportunity to explore previously unknown pathways to our intuition and patterns, but they can also intimidate with their unbound freedom, a sometimes anarchic space occupied only by the whimsy of the creator. However, it is exactly that unbinding which births brilliance and epiphany, as any creative knows.read more
Let’s kick off this warm summer weekend with my new favorite patio pounder, the Red Pepper Tequila Spritz. I am obsessed with the subtle red color of this cocktail due to the homemade red bell pepper simple syrup. This recipe is bubbling with garden freshness and a subtle hint of tequila.read more

It’s actually kind of hard to believe that I have had the blog for four years and haven’t written a post about watermelon salad before. I once grew a 25 pound watermelon in my garden and threw it a party… True story. Apparently you can make watermelon margaritas and watermelon salad for 10 girlfriends and still have leftover watermelon with one 25-pound watermelon.read more
