As the days grow shorter and the nights grow longer, Mother Nature begins to paint some of the most amazing pictures with beautiful reds, yellows, oranges, and browns. Whether it’s corn mazes, leaf peeping, or long walks along the edge of the creek…the wonders of nature are all around us. Fall is definitely one of our favorite seasons, time for cooler temperatures and warm traditions.
If anyone knows about clutter, it’s us at the ‘den. Imagine…cases and cases of shoe samples coming in almost weekly. You don’t know where to put them and you can’t really throw anything out yet – next thing you know, you’re buried. Not only is it stressful, but if you don’t figure it out soon, someone is going to have to send out a search part to find you. Hopefully some of these ideas can help you become “clutter free.”
BEARPAW loves to support artists in the community, and when we came across the work of Alex M. Jimenez, we knew he was perfect for our Home Grown initiative. I was able to sit down with Alex to get to know this talented artist a bit better, find out what inspires him, and of course, admire his work. - Read More -
You’ve worked super hard all year – you sweated it out in cardio; you lifted weights; you juiced; you measured; you food journal’d; you smoothied ’til the cows came home. Let me be the first to say CONGRATULATIONS! You are awesomeness defined, and you look fabulous!! Of course, now comes the hard part: keeping it off.

Let’s dig in and realize that our health is worth the maintenance. We wanted to brainstorm some great ways to do just that from the BEARPAW Den, so here it is: 5 Tips to Maintain Your Weight Loss. - Read More -

If you’re not drinking at least one of your meals, you’re missing out. Smoothies are all the rage, especially here in the BEARPAW Den. They’re great for on the go, packed with vital nutrients, and they taste good. Plus, smoothies are so much better than juicing because juicing removes the pulp – which contains minerals and fiber – and leave behind all the sugar, especially with fruit. So here are some of the most popular smoothies we prepare here at the Den. Beware, they’re addictive! - Read More -
“Your legs look like they belong to a toddler,” my good friend said jokingly to me. We were relaxing outside of the BEARPAW Den on a warm summer day by the pool. I looked down at my legs, and she was right – my shins have more cuts and scrapes than a cat’s scratchpad. I mean, I love wearing a maxi dress more than you know, but is this my only option now when I want to go out and look stylish? No! Here’s how to combat the bruises and scrapes of summer in style (… and still look like an adult!).
I have a little secret, I still love music videos. Maybe its because most of us here at the BEARPAW Den are children of “Video Killed the Radio Star”era, but I love the broad cross-section of videos that are out and available on YouTube now. From fan empowering (think Kelly Clarkson’s Stronger) to straight-up nightclub decadence (think any Usher video) to the esoteric “what the heck is going on” (obviously MGMT), videos are still a great way to get to know and fall in love with an artist. All it takes is a great concept and a good tune.
So without further adieu, enjoy two new videos from Sara Bareilles and Mayer Hawthorne.
Last month, I traveled from the BEARPAW Den here in Austin to Citrus Heights, CA for the annual BEARPAW Sales Meeting. There I met a woman who is quickly becoming my favorite fashionista – Julie Ivanyuk, the Store Manager at The Summit at BEARPAW Village. She has such an elegant style and grace when it comes to fashion, and I LOVE the way she incorporates the ‘Paw into her everyday wardrobe. So yes, I had to feature her here. Here’s 5 Days, 5 Ways to wear BEARPAW featuring Julie …
