Isn’t this the coolest book you have ever seen? I saw this style of folded book sculpture at a store one day and thought, “I can make that myself!” After a few months of procrastination, some Googling and a couple misadventures in book folding, I’ve learned some best practices to fold words onto the pages to make the most lovely folded book art. These books make for great gifts for weddings, baby showers, birthdays and a lovely addition to any home or office. Follow my beginner book folding tips below View this Post
Pizza is one of my go-to food groups – it basically covers all 4 food groups so it’s essentially a superfood right? 😛 This is why I was super excited to make my very own pizza dough for the first time at Sauce Italian Kitchen & Market! If you’ve never been here before, this kitchen is part restaurant, part bakery, and part grocery store that lets you eat, sip and shop all at the same stop. This Calgary neighborhood hub is the perfect pit stop to pick up premade dishes, fresh View this Post

While the pandas are all the rage at The Calgary Zoo, there is another black-and-white critter that you’ll love to visit. The Land of Lemurs exhibit has brought these furry and adorable African animals together for Calgarians to learn and enjoy from. The lemurs were chosen as a way to educate the public and help conserve these very endangered species. The Calgary Zoo will also be working on lemur reforestation and repopulation projects in their native Madagascar.

Every year the Calgary Stampede comes up with crazier, wilder and more outrageous eats on the midway. Do you dare to test your taste buds with these crazy Stampede foods?
This ain’t no regular pizza pie! Local food truck Avatara Pizza always makes great eats so it’s not a surprise that this kangaroo pizza hits the spot. It’s topped with kangaroo sausage along with banana peppers and basil. The kangaroo meat makes for a moderate alternative from the traditional pepperoni – especially if you like a more ‘game-y” flavour.

Oh mini donuts, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…
You are often imitated, but never duplicated. I ravenously covet the 10 days of the Calgary Stampede so I can make my way down to get my hands on your delicious scrumptiousness. As I wind my way through the Stampede grounds, I know not to get fooled by the other stands with their big buckets and other gimmicks. I only have eyes for “Those Little Donuts” as you stand out from all the rest.

Hi friends! This week I am running the @lifeincalgary Instagram account for a takeover! I’ll be sharing all my favourite things to see, eat and do around Calgary as well as some really amazing contests!
The @lifeincalgary Instagram account is from the folks over at the Calgary Economic Development. Each week, they have a new person/business “takeover” the Instagram account to show their perspective on what Calgary means to them. I had so much fun doing this IG takeover last year that I jumped at View this Post

Like any girl, I love to get pampered at the spa. There’s nothing like a little rest and relaxation to help you wind down from the daily grind of life, family, kids, work and more. But you’ve probably never had a spa visit like the unique alpine experience now being offered at the Kananaskis Nordic Spa.
Nestled in the Rocky Mountains, just 45 minutes west of Calgary, the Kananaskis Nordic Spa is earning some rave reviews and for good reason. Focussing on a mix of hydrotherapy and massage, the spa offers View this Post

Aging is often seen as a negative part of getting older, but it doesn’t have to be. One of the best ways to combat the effects of aging is to take care of our skin. Our skin holds our bodies together, provides an outer layer of protection from the elements and, most importantly, shows off the first signs of aging. At a recent Camp Hooha event (more on these events soon!), I learned all about the best ways to take care of my skin from View this Post

Squee! I love, love, love giant pandas! These cuddly gentle giants have descended at The Calgary Zoo into their new home at Panda Passage.

For those of you that can’t wait any longer, take a look through these photos of these adorable pandas and learn some fun facts too!
