79/100: Be Cheeky

79/100 || Last night I finally had the chance to check out the new El Five, and besides the pretentiousness of getting upstairs to the restaurant, the food was yummy, the bartenders were wonderful and the views were spectacular. It was such a lovely warm night, and getting the chance to sit above the city with a friend and some rosé made it really feel like summer is officially here!

29/100: Be Inspired

29/100 || Yesterday I was able to stop by the Museum Contemporary Art Denver to check-out the Basquiat Before Basquiat: East 12th Street, 1979-1980 exhibit that’s currently on display. And I am so very happy that I caught it before it closes on May 14th, because…WoW. What an interesting, complex, and creative soul Jean-Michel Basquiat was!

Saira Rao


Saira Rao grew up in Richmond, VA in the 70s-80s watching cartoons – and as many children of the 80s can attest to, there was nothing quite like waking up early on a Saturday morning to consume as many cartoons as possible. It was our entertainment, and we wanted to see ourselves in the stories. Fast forward 30 years, and Saira found herself watching cartoons again – this time with her young daughter. She was … CONTINUE READING

Bobby Lefebre

Bobby LeFebre is a walking example that we do not have to pick one passion to follow in life – and that, in fact, we can live a life that honors all of our passions.
