Ignite the Soul // Las Vegas Portraits

Kelly Marie Photography

Cody Canyon, of Ignite the Soul, is inspiring others with his music, his holistic nutrition, and his positive outlook on life. In 2012, he woke up in the middle of the night with a melody in his head. Cody recognized that this melody was something he needed to capture, and so lieu of sleep, he opened GarageBand and did just that. His passion for music has evolved into a career.

My Experience in a ‘Shithole’

Greg Ux

January 12, 2018 marks the 8 year anniversary of a magnitude 7.0 earthquake hitting the Caribbean country of Haiti.

MLK 55 years ago and Martin is still forced to stop at dreaming

It also marks the one day anniversary of President Donald J. Trump asking why “we” would want so many immigrants from places like Haiti, El Salvador and African countries – “shithole” countries as he put it – and would instead prefer we open our arms to those from industrialized Western European nations, such as Norway. It goes without saying that the majority of these “undesirables” are of a different complexion than the President, lending further clout to the notion that his incendiary and supremacist rhetoric comes from a place of unabashed bigotry, specifically meant to tickle the conscience of around 33% of Americans.

Ignoring the ever-growing list of negative things one could posit about Mr. Trump, backed by…

Cozy Holiday Dressing… with Trask!

Hello and Happy Holidays to you all! I hope you get to spend some time with family over this season, I sure am. I’m in Park City with my family this week skiing and boarding (trying to avoid catastrophic injuries) and enjoying being together. When family gets together and you have the inevitable mornings and snuggly evenings together, many times people overlook their feet. Yeah yeah you’ve got the top half covered, whether it be a cozy sweater or long t-shirt, and the bottom half adorned with sweatpants or something like it… BUT DON’T FORGET YOUR FEET PEOPLE! Your toes will thank you, plus who wants the grime from their house all up on the bottom of their feet? Uhhh not me.


Four Christmases ago I got my dad a pair of slippers that he wears ALL THE TIME. I’m talking ALL THE TIME. He legitimately told me yesterday, if I…
