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.

Life is pretty busy and hectic so it can be pretty hard to find time for yourself sometimes. Between working a full-time job, cooking, cleaning, laundry, family, friends, blogging and more, I have no idea where my time goes! It’s just a continuous stream of go-go-go.

My friend Noelle felt similarly with with her busy life as a stay-at-home mom of 3 kids. She wanted to find her own personal outlet outside of parenthood and came up with Your Mindful Collective, a website for personal growth for people on the go. Sounds right up my alley!

Enjoy a float at Clear Float Spa.

Don’t you wish you could just float away from all the distractions and stresses in life? You can do just that at the beautiful Clear Float Spa in Mission. I’m always game to try out new experiences, but I have to admit that the idea of floating seemed a little out of my comfort zone.

Floating science has been around since the 1950’s but float spas have only recently hit the mainstream here in Calgary in the last couple of years.  I decided to give it a go mainly as way to get View this Post

#SharetheLoad in Laundry and Life

I’m in the middle of reading Sheryl Sandberg’s corporate gamechanger, “Lean In” about women, work, and leadership. I’m only in the early chapters so once I’m done I will try to circle back with some thoughts about the book. Sheryl is known as a leading activist for gender equality in the workforce. As a young professional navigating the corporate ladder myself, I’m always keen to find female inspiration to help guide my way. I’ve been View this Post

Flare Sixty Under 30

I was up late one night scrolling through my Twitter feed when I came across a tweet for a new lady hero of mine, Sam Maggs. It was a Flare Magazine profile on the geek culture author and her work to get more women involved in nerdy enterprises. Her feature was just one of sixty profiles of awesome ladies, doing awesome things in their respective fields of expertise. I found myself staying up far too late to read all about these amazing women and their passions.

A photo posted by Irene Seto (@heyseto) on


It may be cold and gloomy outside, but it’s always green inside these beautiful moss terrariums. Glass terrarium plants have been around since their kitschy heydays in the 70’s. But these tiny plants have been making a comeback the last few years as do-it-yourself design trends have popularized the terrarium once again. I myself own a few terrariums that I have made for both home and the office. They always bring a smile to my face whenever I see them. I fret over them like they’re View this Post
