The Localist: Lavish Society Co. roses

A post shared by LVSH SOCIETY CO. (@lvsh.co) on


I love getting flowers every now and again. They brighten up the room and make you feel special. If you’re lucky, the blooms may last a week or two but all bouquets eventually will die off. That’s why I’m so stoked to discover Lavish Society Co. roses.

The Calgary company creates beautiful live rose displays that last for a whole year! Say what? That’s so cool. The arrangements come in singles, a small square box of four and a large box of 16.

Discovering Canadian Beef at CL Ranches

Cows grazing at CL Ranches

Beautiful mountain views at CL Ranches.

Just west of Calgary off of highway 1 on the way to Banff, but before you hit the Rocky Mountains, you will find some of the best cattle being bred in the country.

CL Ranches is one of the few cattle ranches left in Western Canada. I had the chance to go out on a tour with the folks at Canadian Beef to actually see where my food comes from! Other than the cows I see at the Calgary Stampede or the cattle I drive past on road trips, I’ve never actually seen a View this Post

A look inside Liz & Lottie

Welcome to Liz & Lottie.

There is LOTS to love about Liz & Lottie. The East Village shop has only been around since July 2016 but is quickly building a reputation as the go-to place for high style goods at unexpectedly reasonable prices. The store features a beautiful and cheeky collection of housewares, home décor, paper goods, jewelry and so much more. Everything from “gangsta napper” baby onesies to “good in bed” pillows can be found at the store. If it’s sassy and classy, you bet you can find it at Liz & Lottie.
