Fab Friday | Turntables, Jazz Dance, Songza

Hi! It’s been a while, I know. But hoping to get this site back up and running and what better way to kick things off than with a Fab Friday – a few of my favourite things I discovered or saw during the week. Here goes. Spotted these amazing turntables by BDDW Turntables, found on […]

6 Ways to Pamper Dad This Father’s Day

6 Ways to Pamper Dad This Father’s Day

Aren’t Dads the Best! Happy Father’s Day to all the great DADs out there! As kids we all remember who our hero’s were: Superman, Firefighters and of course, our Dads. And to make this day super special, I thought up five (mostly inexpensive) ways to pamper dad on Father’s Day. We know any Dad would […]


Tacos, Tequila and Tango (oh and fantastic ART!)

Tacos, Tequila and Tango (oh and fantastic ART!)

Being a supporter of Calgary’s Glenbow Museum it seems only fitting I/We support other local visual art institutions in the city. And it was with great pride that I was asked to join in supporting Calgary’s only Museum of Contemporary Art – MOCA Calgary – by helping promote their 2nd annual MOCA Cinco de Mayo […]

Are jogging pants ‘in style’?

Are jogging pants 'in style'?

I discovered this clothing brand called Publish via my friends over at Espy, so I checked them out. Their wares teeter between street and casual and although I’m likin’ where they’re going with it – the caps, the Spring Collection, the Summer Collection, the Campaigns – I’m just not sure about the joggers. Seriously. Joggers? But here […]

Glenbow's SCHMANCY gets fashion 101 from Binzento

Love seeing this. Calgary fashion blogger Vincent Law (Binzeneto Vincente) gives us a great look at how to be ‘Fancy’ at Glenbow’s SCHMANCY with a five-part video fashion blog series. Each video captures a different style and how it can be turned SCHMANCY. Here are all the videos. SCHMANCY is Glenbow Museum’s annual fundraising event. […]

Fab Friday | Mansome, Coffee and Weddings

Fab Friday | Mansome, Coffee and Weddings

We watched Mansome the other weekend. Basically, it’s a movie about the rise in male grooming and how personal aesthetics has become more important than what beer they drink. I get it. And I can kind of relate. Sure, I take a moment and make myself look presentable most days. I take time to groom, […]


We Day: Amazing!

We Day: Amazing!

My daughter may only be 2 years old, but I can already imagine the day when she has the same awesome experience I just had attending my first ever We Day. It’s either that, or she’ll be completely in to doilies (hoping for the former). I had the opportunity to attend We Day Alberta in […]


Doin’ good things

Doin' good things

I had the pleasure of volunteering for UEnd:Poverty’s World Poverty Day event at Caffe Rosso on 11th Ave in Calgary. We gave away free coffee to raise awareness of extreme poverty around the world and of UEnd.org who makes it super simple for people to give the gift of ending poverty. Check it out. Tweet

Fab Friday | Haberdash, PF Flyers, Feist and Bouncy Gyms

Haberdash This Chicago retailer is top notch. Not only did I want to purchase nearly everything in the shop, but the staff were punctual, friendly and accommodating. Haberdash‘s assortment of styles hit the mark, allowing for anyone looking to freshen up their Fall collection to do so with minimal effort. Brands such as Canada Goose, […]

Happy 2nd Birthday Amelia!

Happy 2nd Birthday Amelia!

You hear everyone say it: “It seems like yesterday.” Well, it really doesn’t for me. Two years ago today, little Amelia was born. And while a lot of the past two years has flown by, especially at the beginning, the past two years has also been a fantastic journey for my Hun and I that […]

Tie Bar

Tie Bar

My dad used to call them “tie clips.” And I once thought they were super cool. Then I thought they were dumb. Now I want one to keep my ties connected to my shirt. Go figure. Anyway, this one from Frank & Oak is nice (Sold out, damn!). Tweet

Whatever

Whatever

Ok, so I thought I was back on my horse writing for the blog. But yeah, whatever. That was short lived. Seriously, every waking moment I kinda feel like I should be: 1) working 2) with my family 3) sleeping. Blog writing comes a close 8 on my priority list right now. And since I […]

Bike Lanes? I’m In.

Bike Lanes? I'm In.

Over the past few years I’ve developed a big love for cycling. Road cycling. With my road bike. And forgetting for a moment, for some reason, a slow start to cycling so far this year, I really plan to cycle more. It’s just so good. I love riding in the country; the silence, straight roads, […]
