Every day we have a choice. We can support an up and coming podcaster, try a new family-run restaurant, join a boutique gym started by a local fitness champ or we could keep giving away our money to the handful of giants who already control so much of our commerce. Our daily decisions impact the kind world we live in; if we want a world where small businesses are growing and artists and creatives are thriving then we should support them with our time, money and attention. We’re proud to highlight inspiring creatives and entrepreneurs each week in Hidden Gems series. Check out some of Far North Dallas’ gems below.

While pursuing my MFA in Design at the University of North Texas. Read more>>

Chelsea Days was formed in 2019 and is based out of Oklahoma City. The band came together when Tim Miller, Ashton Gary, and Alec Hamil met each other while attending The Academy of Contemporary Music at UCO. The 4th member, lead-guitarist Ethan Wilcox, is Gary’s cousin. All with previous musical experience in different endeavors, Chelsea Days draws from a wide variety of influences that inspire various genre-bending compositions. Read more>>
Just a small-town Texas girl who has a love for fashion, beauty, fitness, and family. I currently reside in a large suburb of far north Dallas with my husband Nicholas, along with our two precious toddlers, Archer and Fiona. My babes are 19 months apart and are B.U.S.Y. The majority of my immediate family is within a 10-15 mile radius and we like it that way- always in each other’s business. Read more>>
