The snow has started falling in Calgary and we are just a handful of weeks away from Christmas! Where has the time gone?!? I’m feeling the pressure to get myself organized for my holiday shopping.

One place that I’ve been checking out lately is Neal’s Yard Remedies. It’s an English brand that focuses on organic natural health and beauty products. We’re super lucky here in #yyc as we are the only Canadian location to have access to Neal’s products right now. As I’ve been View this Post

Celebrating Alberta’s heritage at Cabela’s Calgary

Cabela's

There are some big changes coming to Deerfoot Mall starting with the introduction of Cabela’s, an outfitter known for its fishing and hunting expertise. The 70,000-square-foot retail space houses everything from sleeping bags to fishing rods to industrial grade meat grinders. If it has anything to do with the outdoors, Cabela’s will have you covered. The store is a first for Calgarians, who will be treated to an outdoor-like shopping experience with mountain replicas, wildlife displays, an indoor archery range and my personal favourite, the Fudge Shop.

The design of the new Calgary location features tons of inspiration from View this Post

Finding casual and chic at ECCO Shoes

Danish retailer ECCO Shoes has been around since the 1970’s but the Scandinavian brand has only set up standalone stores in Canada since the late ‘90s. With a growing push in Western Canada, ECCO is looking to boost its presence with Calgarians with their new showcase location in Chinook Centre. My boyfriend has been a big fan of their men’s shoes for along time so I decided to take some time to explore what the women’s collections had to offer.

Bex Vintage will be bringing their old-school furnishings to Willow Park Village this fall.

Living in southwest Calgary, one of my go-to places for shopping is Willow Park Village. This outdoor shopping plaza is home to some of my favourite local shops – you can pretty much get anything and everything in one go. This includes baked goods at Crave Cupcakes, dinner at Broken Plate, gourmet eats from Springbank Cheese, a relaxing massage from Skoah, insurance and tickets at AMA, flowers from Blooms and Butterflies, and a few bottles of vino from Willow Park Wines and Spirits (one View this Post

Visiting the new Fresh Laundry shop in Inglewood, Calgary.

The first thing you will notice when you step inside Fresh Laundry is how amazing it smells. From the vibrant green moss on the wall to the soaps and linens on the shelves, this store just smells damn good. And as it should be since this new storefront is all about scents, lotions, soaps and more. Fresh Laundry comes from the brilliant sibling team of Lisa and Ian Davies. The duo (along with a third partner) are already well known for their sister store, The Uncommons, and have played a View this Post

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. But I gotta give props to Showhome Furniture for getting me up to Deerfoot Mall at all).

A recent announcement from Vancouver-based Shape Properties will see an entire revitalization and expansion of the site to become Destination: Deerfoot City. And View this Post
