Experience the Cool Little Towns of Alberta

straw-bales-alberta-custom

There’s something about hay bales that feels so Alberta…

I’m a lifelong Albertan but I am sad to admit that I have not visited much of our fair province. That all changed a couple of weeks ago when I set out on a day trip to explore just what Alberta has to offer. There are so many cool little towns just south of Calgary to visit, many less than an hour away! That’s less time than it would take from to get from the NW of Tuscany down to the SE of Mahogany. Leaving the city traffic behind, my girlfriend View this Post

Find beauty and excitement in the air and all you have to do is look up! High River is host to the annual Heritage Inn International Balloon Festival. The event features balloons from all over Canada as well as international competitors from as far away as Lithuania and the United Kingdom. The Canadian pilots also compete for the national title during the course of the festival to be crowned top balloonist.

Locals can watch the skies for the balloons as they complete their flights each day and evening (weather permitting of course). A great family event to take the View this Post

The air is getting crisp and the leaves are falling to the ground which makes it a great time to stay close to home and find new ways to spruce up the homestead. The Calgary Home + Design Show is back September 22 -25 with tons of ideas to inspire your beloved interior spaces. As a new homeowner, I’m pretty stoked to visit this month’s show to find new goodies for my place (faucets and bathtubs, here I come!) There are also tons of cool local features that will be featured throughout the entire weekend View this Post

Winnie Cooper makes math cool

Nobody likes to be pigeonholed into only one thing that defines them through the rest of their life. That’s why I love this video featuring actress Danica McKellar and how she has changed and evolved over time. The Wonder Years child star will forever be known as Winnie Cooper, the love interest of the earnest Kevin Arnold. Actors that find themselves in career-defining roles can have a difficult time shedding that character. And for View this Post

Find your way at Clear Float Spa

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

Win a $25 Edo Japan gift card

Win Edo Japan

Did you know that Edo Japan was founded right here in Calgary? The first-ever location was in Southcentre Mall back in 1979. Flash forward to 2016 and the Japanese food franchise is opening its 26th Calgary location inside the Market Mall food court. That’s pretty amazing – I feel like no matter what food court I visit, I can count on Edo Japan to be there with their yummy Teppan-style eats. It’s always great to see local brands doing well.

Edo has some pretty classic dishes like the Teriyaki Chicken and Sukiyaki Beef, but they’ve really been upping their game View this Post

Zoom down the Skyline Luge Calgary

Welcome Skyline Luge Calgary (Custom)

I love playing tourist in my own city and as a hometown Calgary girl, I like to think that I am well-versed in all the cool and fun things to do around town. Color me surprised to find out about Skyline Luge Calgary, a city attraction at Canada Olympic Park that I hadn’t heard of before! On a beautiful, sunny Saturday I headed west out to COP to take the plunge on the downhill track.

So what is Skyline Luge exactly? Don’t confuse it with ziplining or luge on an ice track. It’s described as a “unique wheeled gravity View this Post
