A Denver Home Companion | pop-up market at the populist with winter session

i’ve partnered with winter session, one of my favorite local companies, to host a christmas pop-up market at the populist. it’s this coming sunday and monday evenings, 5-9. there are so many great vendors including some you’ve heard of through me before (mountain vs. plains, primary ties, r.l. linden & co) and many more. ollie’s vintage will be there too and i’ll also be slinging some real live mistletoe. and the populist bar will be serving up some tasty libations. so come on by and say hello!

need an idea for a christmas present for that little one in your life? a strider bike. your little one will learn to balance and wheel around on this two-wheeled contraption and then, the concept is, skip training wheels and go straight to being comfortable pedaling on two wheels. ramona got this balance bike for her first birthday, which was probably a bit young, but she has slowly gotten the hang of it and is certainly more comfortable on it.

i did have the idea recently to bike to get tacos — about ten blocks away. it took ten minutes for us to get to the corner. so we scratched that idea. one day. for now we’ll just tool around the block.

if you live in denver, consider getting your strider at salvagetti. they have most, if not all, the colors, and you’ll be supporting a local, small business!

this is not a sponsored post. strider bikes just really rock.

A Denver Home Companion | base coat nail salon denver

base coat is a new nail salon opening up this sunday in the berkeley neighborhood of denver. tran wills, one of the creative minds behind brick & mortar, partnered up with her mother, who has years of experience beautifying nails, to open this sleek, modern, one-of-a-kind nail space. it is founded on the idea that your time spent there should be the most relaxing in your day. sounds pretty good to me!A Denver Home Companion | base coat nail salon denver

in addition to the minimalist space–which oozes calm–base coat only uses nail polishes that are five-free (free of the five most harmful chemicals commonly found in nail polishes). and all of their nail and skin care products used during your treatment have been formylated by local company r.l. linden & co. concoctions include a basil + geranium cuticle soak, lavender + frankincense cuticle oil, petitgrain + lemon enzyme sugar scrub, and a spearmint + bergamot deep moisture foot cream, among other goodies. so it’s pretty darn green for a nail salon and safe for children and expectant mamas like me!

tran invited in to experience the magic hands of her experienced nail techs. i was so in awe at the well-designed space and soaked in (literally and figuratively) the relaxing treatments i received. these ladies are good. there are three levels of services for every schedule and budget.
