The Calgary blogger community is widespread but tight-knit with some really rad people. My friend Laura at scribbles & sass asked me to take part in her Part and Parcel series. I put together a fun list of my best-loved local gems – from treats to clothing, skincare to jewelry. I included things like my Camp Brand Goods sweatshirt and the delectable bonbons from The Chocolate Lab. Head over to her site to check out my guest post on Calgary’s finest goods.

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.

Imagine a shop filled with handcrafted goods, upcycled furniture, and knick knacks of all colors and styles that you’ll immediately want to take home. Branch Market is a curated collection of all things lovely, charming and whimsical from paintings of kitties and bunnies to pre-loved rocking chairs to funny coffee mugs and comfy pillows.
Branch Market is the brainchild of owner and artist Rebecca Desaulniers. She opened the shop in 2015 with a View this Post

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!
