I really like you too Carly Rae Jepsen

This song doesn’t match the phenom of “Call Me Maybe” but should definitely keep Ms. Jepsen out of the one-hit wonder club. Plus I really really really really like Tom Hanks! I’m rooting for you Carly Rae.

Game Night Date Night

Date night

Coming up with date night ideas can be tricky at times, but a tried-and-true Calgary option is going to the hockey game. It’s fun for both boys and girls plus there’s beer involved. That’s make it a win already (and a bonus if the home team can do the same on ice).  I recently took in a Calgary Flames game with my boyfriend J. While it’s unfortunate that we don’t root for the same team (He’s a Leafs fan. I know, I know.) it has become a tradition for us to attend the annual Toronto-Calgary contest and cheer on our View this Post

Sew many buttons

So sew many buttons

Being a clothes hound comes with a lot of tiny accessories – all those little extra buttons that come with every blouse, sweater and jacket. I have saved all of these round enclosures for years now – and no idea of what to do with them. Let the Pinterest brainstorming begin! If you see any fun button ideas, let me know @heyseto or comment below.

Classic Rotisserie at Notable

One of the things I love about Notable is that the menu is always offering up new eats that I haven’t tried there. This is their aromatic-rubbed natural “quarter” chicken that’s all parts delicious and yummy. The housemade apple vinaigrette gave an extra kick to the side salad.

Pucker: A Cookbook for Citrus Lovers

Pucker up.

A photo posted by Irene Seto (@heyseto) on


When life gives you lemons, make lemonade, lemon loaf cake, lemon buttercream, lemon-lavender shortbread, and lemon-rosemary lamb chops, just to name a few. That’s what local writer Gwendolyn Richards did with her new cookbook Pucker. This delicious and juicy cookbook is an ode to the citrus fruits that give us that tang and make our tastebuds pucker.

If you thought that lemons and limes were only good for putting in your water glass, then you have been missing out. The recipes in the View this Post

The Glenbow Museum gets Schmancy with Jessi Cruikshank

It’s time to get Schmancy! The annual fundraiser for the Glenbow Museum is taking place this weekend with host Jessi Cruickshank. The former MTV host sat down with The Glenbow to do a Skype chat and had some hilarious things to say about John Travolta, her childhood, and her love of the arts.

The best part is Jessi’s story about how her parents got her to go to museums and art galleries as a child. Apparently the lure of a McDonald’s Happy Meal was enough to get the young Jessi to visit a cultural View this Post

Destination: Deerfoot City could be pretty amazing

Calgary is home to some pretty top-notch shopping but also some not-so-awesome retail centres too. For years, Deerfoot Mall has been sitting pretty vacant at it’s corner off the major thoroughfare and 64th Avenue NE. Heading to the ‘hood to pick up some outlet wares has not been on my priority list (and apparently not for most Calgarians too. But I gotta give props to Showhome Furniture for getting me up to Deerfoot Mall at all).

A recent announcement from Vancouver-based Shape Properties will see an entire revitalization and expansion of the site to become Destination: Deerfoot City. And View this Post
