The Boulder and The Beautiful

2 things—

First, my favorite Daily Camera (our local newspaper here in Boulder Colorado) columnist,  Aimee Heckle writes a great blog about one of my favorite subjects- fashion.   Boulder and The Beautiful is full of great musings about art, fashion and Boulder all written in Aimee’s trademark tongue in cheek style.  It’s always an entertaining read.

Second, she included Luscious Metals in her recent post about her Top 16 Favorite Fashion Designers in Boulder.  This is a very big honor considering that Boulder is full of amazing trendsetting designers, and Aimee interviews A LOT of them.  I’m flattered to be included in such a great group of local designers including a few that I know personally, and have had the pleasure of working with.  -Amy Fortunado of  Cowboys Sweetheart–(gorgeous jewelry with clever little twists), and Heather English of English Retreads (recycled rubber bags that are ultra stylish and totally cruelty free)

Thanks Aimee!

1,000 pink gumballs

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — Natha @ 1:47 am

Sometimes I fantasize about being the kind of woman who can pull off perfectly coordinated parties and have things like clean socks (that actually match!) on my kids feet every day…but I’m pretty sure I’m not her and probably never will be her.   So instead I have to live vicariously through my friends who can pull that kind of stuff off,  seemingly effortlessly.   Which brings me to the gumball party my Boulder photographer friend Julia Vandenoever had for her daughter.

I’ve done a few photo shoots with Julia (including the model shots for and it seems that not only does she take gorgeous photos, she can also throw the kind of birthday party I could only dream about.   I was looking at her blog the other day and fell totally in love with these pictures and the idea of this lovely garden party complete with handmade garlands and pink lemonade and gumballs.  Take a peek at her beautiful blog to see more of her work and to read about this perfectly pink birthday! 

Oh and Julia–will you throw my next party?  Pretty please?
