Intelligent Elixirs

Give the gift of good skin! My talented friend, Cat Tatman, started up Intelligent Elixirs, and now I can’t live without their products. They offer clean products, free of toxic ingredients that actually produce results! And they are locally owned and operated! How cool is that?! My favorite product right now is her anti-aging gift set. Did you know I’m actually 83?! But, thanks to Cat’s products, folks usually don’t catch on-Ha!

The Modern Nomad

Carefully curated, shopping at Modern Nomad is an experience in itself. Here you will find a variety of small businesses featuring furniture, textiles, rugs, jewelry, apparel, and a myriad of accessories for the home. It is several shops within an open retail warehouse in RiNo, and I swear you will not leave empty-handed. This is one of my main hubs for gifts for all the people in my life. It is also the kind of space you just want to hang out in. Edgy, warm, inspiring, and beautiful. One of my favorite coffee table books, “Living In Style London” from TeNeues, is available here and makes a great gift. Becky Miller, the owner of Modern Nomad, is the cool genius behind this store. Stop in and see who you can check off your list.

The Woods Fine Jewelry

I am obsessed with The Woods Fine Jewelry!  Available at Lawrence Covell, this collection is fabulous.  One of my favorite pieces is this necklace. The designers have this magical ability to juxtapose diamonds with natural, organic elements to create fabulously edgy pieces. Designed and created in Denver and Aspen, The Woods Fine Jewelry makes the most amazing, eclectic, sparkly pieces. I absolutely love their unique style. From earrings to necklaces, these artisans have it dialed in.

Lawrence Covell, established in 1967 and proudly independent, is Denver’s most iconic men’s and women’s specialty store.

Timothy Rollins at Garbarini

I continue to be blown away by the endless talents of my friend Timothy Rollins. I call him a true ‘TRIPLE THREAT’… the man can cook, style, and personal train like no other! Consider the gift of personal training and/or styling from Timothy. He rocks at both! In regards to his personal training he takes on a holistic approach of strength training, agility, and balance. For anything and everything fashion related Timothy is my ‘go-to style guru.’ He will get you outfitted for any occasion this season.  He also will come to your home and do a closet/wardrobe consult if desired. Sometimes you need a little help editing your wardrobe and a 3rd party professional is the best to get the job done. Give Timothy a call for all things fashion and fitness-he truly is THE BEST!
