1. HOUSEWARMING GIFT That would be a bottle of our favorite tequila, Código. They make a rose tequila that is light pink and so yummy. The bottle is beautiful and looks great in anyone’s bar. And, the company headquarters are right here in Niwot. Código 1530 Rosa Tequila, $65;

2. RETAIL STORE A really cool store in Boulder is Haven. They carry the most unique pieces for your home, closet and jewelry box.

3. DENIM The Dazzler Shift by Mother. Period, the end. $275; at Shop Bop,

4. RESTAURANT Our favorite place for food, drinks, music and atmosphere—it would have to be Hillstone in Cherry Creek. My whole family would say it’s our fav.

5. TRAVEL BAG I always carry my MZ Wallace tote. The zipper across the top makes it perfect for travel. Max Tote in Dark Blue Camo, $265;

6. HOME ACCESSORY Our family’s favorite home accessory is our beautiful, white-lacquer backgammon board by Miko. It looks gorgeous on our cocktail table, whether opened or closed. Our matches can get pretty intense. $249; at Zazoo Kids,

7. BAG I recently switched up my bag routine by adding a cute, striped canvas strap from Clare V. I’ve also been carrying the Kurt Geiger Kensington Quilted Snake Skin crossbody bag. The colors are beautiful, the crystal-encrusted eagle head is just so dang cool, and the price is so right. $265; at Dillard’s,

8. FURNITURE When we moved here from California eight years ago, all of our furniture was beachy, with lots of white and florals. That didn’t really work in our new mountain-style house, so we bought two beautiful Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams sofas and two ikatupholstered swivel chairs from HW Home. Our vintage-patina cocktail table and Newton Barstools (also from HW Home) fill the space perfectly.,

9. COLORADO ARTIST I have only one favorite Colorado artist, and that is our great pal Will Day. We own one of his paintings, and we adore it. It’s the most vibrant blue that looks just like a California ocean wave.

10. BEDDING My mother-in-law, the queen of beautiful sheets, just gave us a set of Matouk Portofino sheets in the color Jade. They are 50 percent Egyptian cotton and 50 percent polyester, so they are super-soft and wash really well. I’m obsessed! $99–$135;

11. WORKOUT CLOTHING I’m all about function here, so the TechSweat 7/8 Zoom Leggings ($95) by Outdoor Voices, a Boulder-based company, are a must (I have them in hot pink). I also love the Hudson Skort ($55). It works for running and golf, and it’s super-flattering.
