Destination: Deerfoot City could be pretty amazing

Calgary is home to some pretty top-notch shopping but also some not-so-awesome retail centres too. For years, Deerfoot Mall has been sitting pretty vacant at it’s corner off the major thoroughfare and 64th Avenue NE. Heading to the ‘hood to pick up some outlet wares has not been on my priority list (and apparently not for most Calgarians too.

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.

That’s probably why I gravitate so to Betty Who‘s “Somebody Loves You”. It has that same catchy chorus and title lyric that mimics “Dance” to the t. The song is the pure 80’s, pop-synth vibe that’s hot right now and is super fun to listen to.

The Australian artist is ahead of her game as the song has been available since 2012. But it’s been picking up steam with last October’s album release, Take Me When View this Post
