Storytelling -- conveying a message through means of vocals, theatrics, embellishments, or in this particular instance, through design and creation. Meet Margot Elena, Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Margot Elena Companies and collections, and the ultimate story teller. As a Brand Author of several cult classic, independent beauty brands like Lollia, TokyoMilk, Library of Flowers, and Love & Toast, you surely have not only come across her many perfumes, soaps, and creams, but you’ve been inspired to purchase them because of the story that spoke to you in her design and small details.

In telling stories with her products and their design, Elena gets to create something where nothing exists; everything is inspiration in what she does. “You, quite literally, are just following a dream and watching it manifest in the physical world… that is intoxicating,” she says, “having the incredible opportunity to be creative everyday, it is inherent in the role that there is literally no end to inspiration!” She uses everything and anything in front of her as a beginning point to jump off from. The thrill of that leap is what continues to motivate her, that and the amazing team she gets to work with everyday.

Elena has been creating brands and retailing products from a very early age, Starting in about 3rd grade. Once she got to junior high and high school, she started creating, making and selling products, including an underground newspaper and hand-painted apparel and shoes in stores on Broadway. So, if you were strolling and perusing shops down there during the 80’s, chances are you were encountering her products back then! Needless to say, Elena has been non-stop for essentially her entire life, always moving forward, “Looking back on it, designing, creating, and starting my own beauty company was a completely natural progression.”

Elena starts with a feeling or a concept as she embarks on her next story, brand or product. It can often time be an image, a song, or a name that will inspire and create influence in the voice that it will have, and how strong it will be.

“It seems, in retrospect, there has never been a time that I have not been moving towards owning my own fashion or beauty company.” Elena was one of the first to offer all-natural soap bars in the country when she opened her first store. Even then, it was all about the details when she’d wrap up the bars in kraft tissues and decorate them with dried flowers. They were such a success she remembers people lining up outside her shop to get custom-blended perfumes, bath oils, and her soaps around Christmas time. As a leader in the industry with creating and offering artisanal, handcrafted goods, Elena has enjoyed watching the marketing cycle grow from its infancy to where it is today. She was at the forefront of launching some of the first independent perfumes in the industry in Anthropologie (her Lollia line is still sold there, that’s where this writer first discovered them and picked up her current favorite perfume, for real.)

Tokyo Milk is one of those brands that’s developed a strong voice for itself, and she loves hearing how people interpret that voice and how it contributes to their own story. She tells us she’ll event create “characters” as she creates these brands and the stories behind them. “One brand may be strong, sexy or even fantastical, like TokyoMilk, where another, like Lollia is feminine, romantic while being fresh and modern,” she explains. While it may surprise many that Elena runs her operation here in Denver, she’s seen it as the perfect “open space” that’s allowed for her more free thinking and creativity; she tells us it’s a secret advantage being here. She loves how eclectic of a mix we have going on here, that Denver is truly coming into its own stylistically, and that she’s a part of that. She describes it so well, “It’s not New York, it’s not LA, it is uniquely Denver and has a laid back style and well-travelled finish.” Elena, in her classic fashion, is very much so looking to what the future will bring for her. She sees innovation and most importantly, positive energy in front of her, And no matter what, she’ll always be sure to tell a story with her creations, “Keep your creations fresh so you are always in love with them,” she says. For her, keeping things fresh maintains relevancy, but love keeps her devoted. We really look forward to what stories will yield from that love and devotion she has.

Stretching from Evans Avenue to Denver University campus, South Pearl’s rich history speaks to the heart of this city. Through the ups and downs, the neighborhood has always persevered, and in one of the greatest booms this city has ever seen, the area is now thriving with artisanal offerings and personal service providers. People from all walks are welcome to take a stroll and check out this tucked away gem of a neighborhood. Offering only local services and goodies, this neighborhood is packed with delightful restaurants, boutiques and watering holes, making for the perfect afternoon out. It’s a neighborhood that gives you the real opportunity to make your experience truly your own; everything is truly individual and reflects the spirit of the those creating it. South Pearl Street’s history is one of steadfastness and passion. Going back to the early 1890’s, the neighborhood has always invited the innovators and creatives of the city. Those who were around for the stock market crash witnessed the impact had on South Pearl, but surely enough the area recovered and it was once again thriving. Today, thousands make their way through the neighborhood via means like the Light Rail, creating the bustling, fun and funky neighborhood we all now know.





Shop Here MELROSE & MADISON 1500 Pearl Street @melroseandmadison

COMMON THREADS CONSIGNMENT 1575 South Pearl Street @commonthreadsconsignment

Walking into this boutique you immediately feel the hip but laid-back Colorado vibe the owners of Melrose & Madison have created. With a perfectly balanced assortment of contemporary clothing, stylish denim, comfy loungewear and fun gifts, it really could be a one-stop shop. They even have Denver Broncos gear, something I still need to pick up! Their mix of well-known labels with unique new lines and one-of-a-kind pieces are perfect for fashionistas of all tastes.

A very unique find on South Pearl, Common Threads is a place where people can find your next favorite vintage heels, a funky piece of jewelry, or a fun outfit for your next night out. When you first walk in you’ll notice the numerous racks lined with an eclectic mix of high fashion designers like Prada and Isabel Marant and fashion forward favorites like Anthropologie. It’s a thrifter’s dream to walk in here; everything is affordable, in really good shape, and chances are you’ll never run into someone wearing what you find there!

PAIGE ON PEARL 1509 South Pearl Street @paigeboutiqueonpearl This shop is definitely on the end of progressive, modern clothing and accessories; always bringing in new designers, Paige on Pearl offers the hottest trends for the most up-to-date dresser. They also make a point of focusing on new designers in what they carry, making it fun for shoppers to discover their potential newest obsession.

5 GREEN BOXES LITTLE STORE 1596 South Pearl Street @5_green_boxes 5 Green Boxes is split into two locations, just feet from one another. The first, the Little Store, to start, offers clothing, accessories and jewelry. Even more, they have socks, beads, pins, pocket books -you name it, they probably have it here. It’s a great grouping of vintage and modern, with an incredibly upbeat vibe. You could (and should) spend a good amount of time going through the racks here.

THE RUFFLY ROSE 1611 South Pearl Street @TheRufflyRose

5 GREEN BOXES BIG STORE 1570 South Pearl Street @5_green_boxes

This was a favorite place to stumble upon while walking down South Pearl. Ruffly Rose is a full service florist that offers custom flower bouquets for any occasion, plants for the home, and a wide assortment of gifts and sweet treats. I could have gotten lost in this place looking at everything, it was seriously all wonderfully intoxicating. This is the place to keep in mind for that next thoughtful ‘little something’.

This location offers everything else you could fill your home with! Their 3000 square feet shop is covered with quirky gifts, kitschy kitchenware, unique decor, peaceful plants, bohemian and worldly goods, and everything in between. Be sure to just start in one area and take your time; there’s a lot to see here and trust me, you’ll want to take all of it home with you.

Snack & Sip Here STELLA’S COFFEE HAUS 1476 South Pearl Street @stellascoffeehaus Stella’s has been a fixture in the neighborhood since the early 90’s. Offering a super comfortable, laid-back atmosphere, awesome lattes, and an incredibly friendly barista staff, it’s become a favorite place for a coffee meet-up. With six rooms decorated with a diverse collection of original artwork for sale, you may walk out with the latest addition to your decor. If you’re an artist looking to hang your pieces there, just simply talk to one of their baristas! IZAKAYA SUSHI DEN 1478 South Pearl Street


Izakaya is the perfect place for a more upscale date night. Billing itself as a sake house with tapas, it focuses on global and Japanese dishes; don’t worry, you can still order sushi here! The entire experience here is a feast for both the eyes and the palette; the dishes they offer are beautifully constructed and taste delicious, but the restaurant itself is stunning. Sculptures, intricate design, and live plants can be seen from every corner; the mood is one of romance and sophistication.

KAOS PIZZERIA 1439 South Pearl Street As one of the businesses on South Pearl who transformed a home into a business, Kaos has created the perfect meeting of feeling at home while sitting in a pizzeria. Offering some of the best handmade, brick oven pizza you’ll try here in Denver and some of the city’s favorite local brews, you won’t want to give this place a miss on your next group outing. A favorite spot for me here was their patio in the back.

FOURTEEN SEVENTY-TWO 1472 South Pearl St. @restaurant1472 As someone who enjoys a good dive bar or pub, Fourteen Seventy-Two was an awesome find ending my day. With an open floor plan and outdoor seating, the place feels very welcoming. They have an awesome menu offering things like chicken and waffles and roasted tomato Caprese salad, but it was their drinks I was after. Don’t shy away from any of their mixed cocktails, their bartenders know what they’re doing over there.

Sweatshirts aren’t just for the gym or lounging around the house. Time to take the sweatshirt out on the road!

Now that you’ve got an easy outfit, here’s a few of my favorite teen travel tips to ensure the rest of our journey is just the same.

Easily match fall’s cozy weather staple with a cute pair of sequin shorts and some sassy boots and you’re ready for the next college town tour. Or top off a suede skirt with a sweatshirt and a button down underneath for an outfit that you can wear to your next family dinner.


Whether you are traveling alone or with your family, it’s up to you to haul around your stuff. You can’t be prepared for everything, so just make sure you have emergency money and the rest will work itself out. RESEARCH

There are plenty of affordable hostels or AirBnBs that are just as comfortable as pricey boutique hotels but at half the price. Bonus: The owners can give you some really great tips about exploring their home city. READ & WRITE

“Hollerado” Lightweight Hoodie $35, I Get Down Co.

Bring books or your e-reader as well as a journal to write down your travel stories for stimulating your brain while traveling and keeping track of your journey. MEET THE LOCALS

Talk to someone new along the way. It’s fun to try out your foreign language skills. Even if you aren’t fluent, people still appreciate you trying! GO WITH THE FLOW

Sometimes we overplan; make sure you have a day that has absolutely no plan. You might find that the best days are the ones you just let happen.

GRAND VALLEY Stroll the streets of Grand Junction and pedal through Palisade Wine Country on this getaway designed to take time a little slower in Colorado’s Grand Valley. Written by Heather Okimoto

Shop Here A ROBIN’S NEST 602 Main St. @robinsnestantiques If you’re looking to get lost for a couple of hours and find one of a kind pieces, stop in A Robin’s Nest. It’s revered as the ‘largest antique store between Grand Junction and Las Vegas’ and is a treasure trove of individual vendors selling unique finds for your home, one-of-a-kind vintage clothing, and cases of jewels that will take you back in time.

COLORADO BABY 560 Main St. @coloradobabygj With nowhere to find cloth diapers in her town, owner and mom, Megan decided to solve her own dilemma. She began with an online boutique offering natural mom and baby products eventually finding a space where workshops and inventory could be held. The sweet boutique is full of locally designed and made products as well as offers a variety of resources and services for new and expectant mothers.

POLLUX CLOTHING COMPANY 321 Main St. @polluxclothing Shop from new arrivals daily at this stylish trendsetting boutique in the heart of downtown. The color merchandised boutique offers contemporary clothing for junior and women of all sizes, gifts for friends, and accessories to complete your favorite fall outfit.

ZEPHYR OF GRAND JUNCTION 554 Main St. @zephyrofgrandjunction Shine bright like a diamond at your next event in a show-stopping stunner from Zephyr of Grand Junction. The fashionable Main St. women’s boutique is filled with elegant gowns, comfortable basics, designer brands, and timeless pieces you’ll want to add to your wardrobe.

SAGE CREATIONS ORGANIC FARM 3555 E Rd. Palisade @sagecreations

JUNE RUBY 537 Main St. @juneruby Freshen up your fall and winter look with everyday stylish find. Save money/buy more from the clearance room tucked right past the fitting rooms. The spacious store has options to fit women’s budgets, sizes, and offers personal shopping services to save you time. Need this service in your life? Stop into the Stapleton store to shop locally in Denver.

Stroll through sprigs of blues and purples at the Sage Creations Organic Farm. Cut your own lavender or shop from all natural dried herbs, plants, and high-quality products that soothe and remedy life’s ailments while calming your senses.

Snack & Stay Here WAREHOUSE 25 SIXTY FIVE 2565 American Way @warehouse2565

THE WINE COUNTRY INN 777 Stubb Ditch Rd. Palisade @coloradowinecountryinn

Start, end, and make a stop in the middle of your trip at the Warehouse. The family/date-night/music-venue/ game-watching/girlfriend meetup/event space...all-in-one concept was brilliantly created by sister duo Noel and Terri. With as much going on here as there is, no traveler will be left out when visiting. The reinvented flooring warehouse offers a beautifully executed menu of sharable snacks, full meals, and hand-muddled mules in a variety of spirits and mouth-watering flavors.

Make time to take your time at The Wine Country Inn. The complimentary tasting of private label wines upon arrival makes it a little easier to get into the mindset of taking things a little slower. The rooms provide a comfortable retreat from a day full of tastings, outdoor adventures, and the hot breakfast provided in the morning is the perfect base to begin your routine of relaxation.

BIN707 225 N. 5th St. #105 @bin707foodbar

PALISADE CAFE 11.0 113 W. 3rd St. Palisade @palisadecafe

For an unforgettable dining experience, I highly recommend making your reservations early at Bin707. Chef Josh Niernberg, brings the farm to table in a creative encounter that keeps you at the edge of your seat looking forward to the tastes of his next creation. Josh’s highly anticipated newest endeavours, Taco Party and Dinner Party are reasons to book your trip right now and plan out your eating schedule.

Savour the taste of local ingredients at Palisade Cafe 11.0. This main street eatery harmoniously pairs components that are memorably satisfying and comforting while away from home. Each delectable dish is carefully crafted with the freshest ingredients for flavors that are picked right from the farm, including the creamiest homemade gelato you’ll find in the middle of America.
