A for real MixTape

This has got to be the most badass MixTape idea ever. Leave to the clever kids at Holiday Matinee, easily one of my favorite blogs, to come up with this. Each month they drop a new MixTape with a different design and new playlist. The music usually bangs and if it doesn’t you can find yourself just staring at the tape as it goes round and round because it’s that cool. Only thing I don’t know is if you have to flip it half way through… Continue reading


I Heart Street Art

In front of the MCA in Denver, probably one of my favorite spots in Denver.

A post on the Cool Hunter about Street Art says it best; street art can completely change the look of a city if the city council will only be open minded enough. Thankfully I live in places that see the value of turning a piece of brick into something more. I love finding little hidden pieces of art sprinkled around town, it’s like finding a four-leaf clover in the middle of a concrete jungle. Maybe even as cool as finding a dolla bill on the ground. Denver has an absurd amount of sculptures, hidden art and inspiration throughout the city. Here’s a small collection of things that have caught my eye in the past few months. Continue reading

Anthem Branding Happy Hour

If I haven’t already told you about this, then we probably haven’t caught up recently. This is my little networking side project I’ve been working on for a while at work and it’s almost here! 2140 is the Boulder Chamber’s Young Professionals Networking group; they do a great job at putting on Happy Hours, Luncheons, and Philanthropic events in the community to get people between the ages of 21 & 40 together to socialize. It’s not a pretentious group of card shovers, just people like you and me that like to meet & greet with a drink and chat it up.

On Wednesday Sept 22 from 5:30-7:3opm Anthem Branding is partnering with 2140 to host the September Happy Hour. With the recent wildfires in our neck of the woods, the non-profit we’ve decided to benefit could not be a better choice. EFAA (Emergency Family Assistance Association) has helped thousands of families in need, providing food, shelter, rent assistance, furniture and more. They are currently playing a critical role in supporting the families that have been devastated by the recent Fourmile Wildfire and the ongoing Larimer County Wildfire.

Upslope Brewing Co has generously donated their delicious beer for the occasion, Comida, the mobile Mexican feast will be rolling up in the parking lot to dish out some tacos, and wine will be flowing. We’re suggesting a $15 donation to EFAA if you come…there are a lot of families that have lost everything and need a little boost. We’ll get the party tab, you just show up, support a great cause, and have a good time.

2 more reasons you should come: Anthem is known for rad swag and if you get there early you just might get some fly gear of your own. And I’m moving 3 days later, so come say good bye please (:


What a great way to kick off the Stuff I think is Cool category. The Awkward Moment cards are brilliant. Not only do I have a secret obsession for notecards in the first place, but had I known about them sooner I would have blown through a few boxes already. Perfect to start off those conversations you never thought you’d have to have. Please advise if you need my updated address. Continue reading
