Meet the new Calgary Public Library

You’ve probably noticed that the Calgary Public Library has changed! A new look and a new feel to go with the new role of a library. I’m really excited for how the New Central Library will change the landscape downtown and filter to all the other branches around the city.  Calgarians love their library and with free memberships, that means a whole lot more people will get to experience the fun. Check out this cute video from the CPL and if you haven’t already, go pick up your free library card.

Day 1 of June Dresses

Day 1 of June Dresses

It’s the start of a brand-new month and the beginning of an amazing fundraiser! I’m participating in June Dresses: 30 days, 30 dresses, all to help empower women through dress.

And as the movement grows, more ladies will be part of the cause and help to give back to other women in their community.

I get anxious at the constant bombardment of Mother’s Day messages that gets thrown at me from the coffee shop to the grocery store. I get nostalgic when I think of how happy View this Post

Let’s Vote (young) Alberta!

Vote Alberta

I took to the advance polls earlier this week and was pleasantly surprised at the continuous hustle and hum going on at the election office. There was a steady flow of people coming in and out to place their advance ballots. But what wasn’t surprising was the demographics of the voters – definitely skewing 50+. Ever since I turned 18 and able to vote, I have consistently been the youngest person at the polling station. And it’s not because I look like I’m 12. I literally am the only person under 30 to show up and vote. Now why View this Post

The cutest Crave Cupcakes

I didn’t think I could love Crave Cupcakes more than I already do but then they do this: create adorable animal cupcakes in support of the Calgary Humane Society! In celebration of National Cupcake Day, these delicious critter cupcakes will be available for one day only on February 23rd. You can pre-order your cupcake six-pack to include two animals of your choosing (bunny, kitty or puppy) and four classic swirled cupcakes. 50% of sales from each six-pack will go towards helping animals at our local Humane Society.
