Reporting Live: Jerad Giottonini

If you live in DM, IA, you probably know Jerad Giottonini. A fixture on WHO news, and personality you'll never forget -- he is truly a gem of our city. He wears second-hand better than almost anyone, will out-twerk you any day of the week and is as good of a guy as they come.  Jerad's been on the move (Montana prior to Des Moines, 'tis the nature of their work), and now his time has come to make the move again. Obviously, we're so happy for him, but he has become not only a top ASOME customer:) but a dear friend that is going to be dearly missed.  His time in our city was far, far, far too short, but we...

Shopping: Second-Hand for the Win

You've probably gotten the gist by now, we're totally in favor of sustainable shopping options. Does it happen 100% of the time? No, it doesn't.

Happy National Anti-Boredom Month!

I know the 4th gets a lot of the action when it comes to July, but we also celebrate another occasion -- and this one is for the whole month -- National Anti-Boredom Month! So in honor of the holiday, here are a few of our favorite things to do in Des Moines to keep the boredom at bay.   The Des Moines Art Center is an absolute gem in the city, get there soon if you haven't been lately!  If you prefer the outdoors, get your ass to some grass! Or just take a little stroll through the East Village. *And make sure to selfie it up while you're there 🙋‍♀️ If you're more of the indoors type, we highly...
