Say hi to Scribbles & Sass

Guest post on Scribbles and Sass

Just a few of my favourite things featured on Scribbles and Sass

The Calgary blogger community is widespread but tight-knit with some really rad people. My friend Laura at scribbles & sass asked me to take part in her Part and Parcel series. I put together a fun list of my best-loved local gems – from treats to clothing, skincare to jewelry. I included things like my Camp Brand Goods sweatshirt and the delectable bonbons from The Chocolate Lab. Head over to her site to check out my guest post on Calgary’s finest goods.

Find Fresh with Wild Tea Kombucha

Kombucha may be relatively new to the Calgary scene, but the ladies behind Wild Tea Kombucha are trusting that the health drink alterative is more than a fad. Emily Baadsvik and Brigette Freel have been working together since 2015 to perfect their Wild Tea Kombucha blends. In just those few short years, the brand can now be found in over 50 locations across Western Canada including big grocers like Sobeys and Save-on-Foods as well as niche and independent retailers and restaurants.
