Cool Calgary bathroom in Bridgette Bar

Checking out the cool bathrooms of Calgary.

I have a thing for beautiful bathrooms. There’s just something about a well-done bathroom that makes you feel like you’re getting a taste of luxury, a little escape from reality and just the chance to really enjoy your business, y’know what I mean?

Calgary is home to some fantastic design and architecture – and with that comes some very funky, chic, and hip bathrooms. If you’re looking for that place for the perfect selfie, then these bathrooms will really up your ‘gram. Here’s a look at some of the coolest bathrooms in the 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.

Surviving a Vancouver rainfall with Canada Goose

Canada Goose Timber Shell front Canada Goose Timber Shell back

Canada Goose is known as the premier winter brand for their ultra-warm and fashionable parkas and coats. But did you know that they make spring jackets as well? I sure didn’t until I got my Canada Goose Timber technical shell jacket (in the brilliant pink Torch in case you were wondering). It’s a super stylish coat. The cuffs are tapered and it has a longer back for cover. The zippers and seams are all waterproof with ventilation on the sides for when things get too humid. The hood on a jacket usually doesn’t fit me very well, but this one View this Post
