IN Kansas City Staff Picks: February 2024





My family’s been obsessed with making homemade pizza. We buy fresh pizza dough and sauce from Bella Napoli in Brookside or Carollo’s Grocery & Deli in the River Market. Add all sorts of fun toppings, and it’s out of the oven in 10 minutes!




La Bottega is my favorite place right now for home decor, fun pieces, and inspiration! I love the variety of goods, and the prices are great. You never know what you’ll find in this cute vintage shop.



Right now, I’m loving the Garden House Cafe at 1639 Southwest Blvd. It’s a cafe and plant shop—the vibe is amazing. If you’re obsessed with London Fogs like I am, they make one of the best I’ve ever had.

Goodynuf Ceramics



The pottery from Goodynuf Ceramics is beautifully made by a local artist named Aisha Syed. Her pieces frequently pop up at Casual Animal Brewing (and elsewhere), and I can’t wait for her next drop.

Nickel & Suede



I love my
Soft Sand Islas earrings from Nickel & Suede. The neutral color goes with just about everything, and every time I wear them I get compliments from random strangers. Gotta love that! 




I’ve been going to classes at Sweat Forum in Prairie Village about four or five days a week. It’s locally and female-owned, and the instructors are awesome. I love the heated infrared room and how good it makes me feel. It does my mind and body good!
