Empty bottles of wine

Share a bottle of wine (or 6) with the Vine Arts wine club.

You can get a subscription for almost anything these days. Monthly cheese, monthly pet treats, monthly socks, and so much more. But I gotta say that my go-to subscription these days is the curated wine from Vine Arts monthly wine club. Who doesn’t love wine?

My friends and I have been part of the Vine Arts wine club for years and have loved discovering new wines through this subscription. Every month, the boutique wine merchant puts together a special selection of handpicked wines for their wine club. View this Post

Review: Keeping clean with the Shark ION Robot vacuum
The hands-off way to domestic bliss and a clean home

Robot vacuum cleaning living room

I’d rather be reading, knitting or basically doing anything other than household chores. The Shark ION Robot Cleaning System makes this happen!

Chores are SUCH a bore. What’s the solution then? The Shark ION Robot Vacuum Cleaning System with Wi-Fi.

If you’re a lazy person like me, then you’ll do anything to make household chores disappear ASAP. When the friendly folks at SharkNinja offered up their Shark robot vacuum to boost my cleaning routine, I said “heck yes”. If you have watched any TV lately you will have likely seen the Canadian Tire commercials touting this new device. I’ve View this Post

As the owner of the XO Treatment Room, Annie Graham has seen it all. The Beltline skincare clinic is where Annie brings together her medical expertise with the best technologies to help us skin-sensitve folks get through Calgary’s dry winters and arid seasons.

At a recent Camp Hooha event, I learned all about the best ways to take care of my skin direct from Annie’s XO Treatment Room playbook. Aging is often seen as a negative part of getting older, but it doesn’t have View this Post

Why you need to go to Camp Hooha
It's like Girl Guides for adult women and so much darn fun!

Camp Hooha learning event for women

Camp Hooha founder Mel McKay kickoffs an evening of ladies learning.

You haven’t been to the most amazing women’s networking event until you’ve been to Camp Hooha. Think of it as Girl Guides for adults – but you get to learn about an educational grownup topic while drinking wine and earning badges. It’s probably been a while since you’ve been away to camp, so it’s time to find out what you’ve been missing out on at Camp Hooha.

Camp Hooha is where my girls at

First off, Camp Hooha is just for the ladies! Think about the name a View this Post

Van Der Pop gets me curious about cannabis
Cannabis resources for women

Van der Pop cannabis resources for women

As a cannabis virgin I have a lot of questions about it. That’s where Van der Pop comes in. The female-focussed cannabis brand is bringing women and weed together to explore and learn about the marijuana flower-powered pleasures and benefits that can be had.

I feel like a bit of a “square” as I’ve never had a desire to toke up in school and as I hit adulthood, it seemed even less likely that I would start using cannabis. But with legalization in Canada now a reality, I find myself very curious about cannabis. What can this mystery plant do View this Post

Peak Trails: A Hike through Fullerton Loop

A mild winter + early spring = shoulder season hike! Fullerton Loop is a gentle trail that is great for families with wonderful views of the Elbow Valley. It’s a relatively easy hike (especially for non-hikers like myself).

The 2013 floods did some pretty big damage to the access trail. You used to park next to the river and walk underneath the Highway 66 bridge to get to the loop. Now you park on the other side of the highway closer to the Alberta Parks offices and follow the path to the Fullerton Loop trail View this Post
