  1. Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in 416 Coco //  I don’t go anywhere without my signature shade of red and you can’t go wrong with Chanel’s matte lipstick.  Plus it smells like Chanel No. 5.  I feel pampered every time I wear it.
  2. I should own stock in Pellegrino // I drink it every day.  It’s such a great alternative to sugary soft drinks and replenishes your body with minerals.
  3. Endangered Species Panther, Extreme Dark Chocolate (88%) // This is my absolute favorite!  I love dark chocolate and this is a great brand.  I love to give myself a treat after a hard week with a few squares of this incredible chocolate bar.
  4. Epsom Salt Baths // I live in my bathtub.  There is nothing more fabulous than ending a busy work day on your feet than soaking in a tub full of Epsom Salts and listening to Pandora’s spa station.
  5. Royal Arch Trail at Chautauqua Park in Boulder, CO // Stunning views and incredibly challenging but totally worth it when you get to the top!
  6. My Journal // I write in it every day.  It’s how I process my day and allows me to be present with myself.
  7. Copperfalls Aveda Spa in Castle Rock // I have been going there for massages and waxing for the past ten years.  Always a wonderful experience and quiet – a bit under the radar.
  8. His Holiness the Dalai Lama // He’s an incredible spiritual leader, practical and ethical.  I have been blessed to work as a volunteer for him on multiple occasions and give service to the Buddhist community.  His teachings have helped me to be humble, shown me how to better care for myself and heal wounds from my past.  What a gift to have his light in the world!
  9. Sarah and Mandy from Antoine Du Chez in Lone Tree // These two fabulous gals have been cutting and coloring my hair for years!  They are not only incredibly talented but have been there to lift me out of funks, push my boundaries and make me feel great about myself!
  10. My beauty advisor Lish at Sephora Park Meadows // She is the magic behind my look and has taught me more about skin care and cosmetics than I ever thought I would know.
  11. One Yoga DTC // EVERY instructor here is amazing.  They are connected and really supportive with what each individual needs from a yoga session.  Plus their studio is really beautiful.
  12. I absolutely love my team at Ghurka // They are so wonderful.  In all the years in retail I have been honored to work with so many talented people and our Ghurka folks are wonderful representatives of a timeless brand.
