✨HER 2022 nominations are now open!✨ Every year, we dedicate an issue to the dynamic female leaders of the 405 who work tirelessly to effect positive change and enhance our community. The 405 is filled with so many incredible women who are trailblazing the path for others to follow. Our goal with HER is to simply honor those who are making an impact, empower those who lead the way, and rise up those who continuously put others before themselves for the greater good.⁠

We’re looking for our 2022 Community Visionary, Humanitarian, Industry Leader, Medical Hero, Entrepreneur and Catalyst. The chosen honorees, along with our pick for Woman of the Year, will be featured in our October 2022 issue. Know someone who fits the bill? Nominate her at the link below!

✨THE MARCH ISSUE IS HERE!✨⁠

Please enjoy this note from the Editor: ⁠

This issue is personal. If you ask how we ended up in OKC you will get several answers — nearby family, growing relevant industries, etc. But if I had to name the number one reason we decided to move here, the answer is housing.⁠

Since graduating college in 2007, I was forced to move eight times in nine years all over Los Angeles. Each time, whether it was a tiny 700 sq. ft. house in a bad neighborhood or a tiny apartment in a high rise, the rent was substantially more than my current mortgage. ⁠

We were mind-blowingly relieved, and felt so lucky, to be able to buy a starter home in Oklahoma City. Our modest 1980s ranch-style house (in serious need of updating) felt like living in a palace! For the first time in my adult life, I was finally and wonderfully home.⁠

A country song by Jordan Davis and Luke Bryan recently came on the radio, and while I found it a little cheesy, the lyrics resonated:⁠

“‘Cause the truth about it is It all goes by real quick⁠
You can’t buy happiness But you can buy dirt”⁠
The song goes on to describe the simple joy and fulfillment of owning your own property and building a life on that foundation.⁠

Check out our cover feature (pg. 34) for a detailed look at just how incredible the OKC cost of housing is compared to other major U.S. cities. We hope this illustration of the nationwide market will help you see your own home with a new sense of gratitude.⁠

Also in this issue, you’ll meet a real estate agent with an inspirational story, get insight into OU men’s basketball as March Madness approaches, and discover a family of beekeepers affecting Oklahoma’s pollinator population in a big way.⁠

And with that, I would love to be the first to welcome you to a very splendid spring! Head to the link below to digitally flip through the March Issue.⁠

The weather outside is frightful, but these desserts are without a doubt ✨delightful✨⁠

In our February feature, Senior Writer Greg Horton talked to pastry chefs👨‍🍳 around the metro about different desserts, especially the ones for which they are best known, and we’ve compiled a list of concepts in the 405 that offer delicious options for that final indulgence after your meal…or whenever.😉⁠

🌟THE FEBRUARY ISSUE IS HERE!🌟⁠

Please enjoy this note from our Editor:⁠

Welcome to February, the loveliest little month!⁠

Here at 405 Magazine, we are celebrating a massive milestone: This is our 25-year anniversary issue! Recently at the launch party for our new 405 Business Magazine, Mayor David Holt said in his speech, “A great city needs mythology. It needs people out there telling our stories. You’ve got to have somebody out there writing the first or second draft of our city’s history, and 405 through multiple sources does that for our city. So thank you.”⁠

This magazine and OKC have been through a lot together. The publication began in 1997 as Nichols Hills News and grew into several (at least seven) separate publications, which then merged together to form Slice. In 2015, it took on the name you know today, 405 Magazine. Some of you⁠ reading this have been a part of our community that entire time—and for that, we are deeply grateful. ⁠

I’ve always been a “treat yourself to the finer things” kinda gal. You only live once, so why not indulge a little? Numerous studies have confirmed that kindness to oneself is healthy, not frivolous. It boosts happiness, motivation, and self-worth. Something as small as fresh flowers in your kitchen, a manicure, or a fancy latte can brighten a dark⁠ day. I consider a good macaron a form of self-care—and there isn’t a dessert in existence that I could ever say no to.⁠

In this issue we highlight three of the best things in life: dessert, brunch, and date night. Senior writer Greg Horton explores the sweets scene in OKC by interviewing five top pastry chefs about their signature confections. The⁠ story contains such golden nuggets as a mother/daughter team carrying on a family recipe and the science behind creating a dish that appeals to all three types of taste buds in the mouth. He also takes a look at the side of brunch you may not consider when toasting mimosas with your friends at 11am on a Saturday.⁠

Digitally flip through our February 2022 issue at the link below. Enjoy and bon appétit! 📲✨

Hot Off the Presss Go pick up your copy of the 405 Magazine Thank you so much Evie for the time listening to me ramble about bees and the awesome write up on us. Amazing job amazing photography well done 405 Magazine It's really amazing to see all the different publications and local news have an interest in our story, who we are and how we keep bees. I am a simple person that stepped outside the box of traditional beekeeping. Small yards, small harvests, quality products, and solely keeping bees in a state that ranks in the bottom for honey production and ranks high in colony loss. Oklahoma is a hard state to keep bees in and unfortunately a lot of areas are not bee friendly. While many thought we were crazy for doing bees like we do, and even still do, we slowly carved out who we are and what we do not listening to the naysayers along the way. The community, and not just the local OKC metro community, but all of Oklahoma, has shown and given us support. Our products have reached all across the state. We are as far as we know Oklahomas only beekeeping operation that reaches boarder to boarder and has working hives in all 6 regions of the State. I am blessed for sure to be able to work, share and show these amazing insects to so many. Whether it's helping other beekeepers across our growing social media platforms, educating people about the importance of pollinators, sharing ideas tips, tricks and failures to helping our local farmers, growers, cities, neighborhoods and people that want bees around enjoy bees with beekeeping. It's amazing and surreal watching our little bee world expand and where it is headed. Lexi and Lucas always get super excited when a new article comes out. They are going to be famous is what they say. They are already famous to me though just like all of yall out there supporting us in our crazy little bee world Thank you for all the support. From our followers, customers new and old, property owners, hive sponsors, community, and media support we appreciate all of you. Bringing you the taste of a million flowers to your tongue.

This world's fair spans over 180 days and brings together an array of talent from all walks of life representing everything from education, the arts, food, and of course music. We wish Kyle and Peter safe travels and eagerly await stories on their return. Read about it now, and pick up your copy today! https://issuu.com/sliceok/docs/405mag_0322_1_/88
