One love

An OCU law student turned her experience in Ghana into a nonprofit that helps an impoverished village. And that’s just the beginning.


Features

Karli McMurray didn’t intend to start a nonprofit when she traveled to Ghana in the summer of 2009.

Saintly

A new Irish pub makes its home in the Plaza District.


Food and Drink Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
Saints, a new Irish pub slated to open soon, wasn’t supposed to be in the Plaza District, but owner Patrick Ireland is happy that’s where he’s landed.

Wedding-ready

New dresses! Free booze!


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson

Weddings, weddings everywhere, nor any drop to drink. (Yeah, I just dropped a “Rime of the Ancient Mariner” bastardization on you.)

Anglophilia

Let's salute the Brits.


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
Prince William and I are practically the same age. That’s not all we have in common (we’re both princes losing our hair?) — no, wait, that is all we have in common.

Eco-chic

Being good to the planet doesn’t mean giving up pretty things. I promise.


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
I don’t even want to think what the girl sitting in front of me was feeling like. She was granola, wearing a long skirt, her head heavy with dreads that I imagine itched like crazy.

On the cheap

Not all great things have to cost a mint


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
Guys, let’s talk. This is a serious subject. See? I’m sitting backward in my chair and loosened my tie so we can “get real.” That’s how serious I am. It’s like a 1996 “ABC Afterschool Special” here at ShopGirl headquarters.

Strapping sandals

It's spring! New shoes! Hallelujah!


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
Break out the toenail polish; spring is here. And that means new shoes. Hallelujah! No, seriously. You say “new shoes,” and I instantly start hearing really exuberant gospel music that involves clapping and raising of hands. Anyone else?

Clean act

It's spring cleaning time.


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
One of my good friends is obsessive about cleaning. Obsessive. We lived together throughout college and she made a habit of steam-cleaning the carpets every few months.

Garden party

It doesn’t matter if you don’t know the difference between a trowel and a hoe (we don’t, either). Here’s what you need to make your garden grow.


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
Spring is about renewal. The air is fresh, the mornings are cool, and all the new green things are growing. You can’t help but want to get your hands in the dirt and grow some things of your own.

Under the sea

Everything’s better down where it’s wetter. Take it from these scuba diving experts.


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
So you don’t have gills or fins? No problem. Scuba diving businesses around the metro offer classes, equipment and trips for beginners on up.

Rainy days

If I’m going to be stomping through puddles, I don’t want to be wearing something staid.


Features

Jenny Coon Peterson
Am I the only one who really loves rainy days? They just make me feel cozy and nest-y.

Here's the skinny (and wide) on the glasses that fit the drink.
