I like to keep myself open to opportunity and new adventures, so when I found out that Miss America was en route to Calgary during Stampede and that I could meet her for a little photo action, I decided to go for it! I was even more delighted when I met Betty Cantrell, who in true Georgian style, was really sweet and a delight to meet – insert beauty and the fact that she’s super photogenic, and we have a street style hit!

Recently the Calgary Parking Authority has updated the time for paid on-street parking in Downtown Calgary and we wanted to make sure you’re aware of the new rules.

When you’re parking in the morning, keep an eye on the signs, as some zones that previously required payment from 9am to 6pm are now 7am to 6pm on weekdays. These zones will still require payment starting at 9am on Saturdays, with free street parking on Sundays and statutory holidays. [click to continue…]

Saturday, August 20th 2016 is the day to connect with your inner yogi, whether you are a novice, experienced, or merely curious: all you need is a yoga mat and a benevolent spirit. Participants are challenged to execute 108 sun salutations (or as many as you can, really!) in a large gathering of fellow participants, and join a global movement for education and change.

In 2015 year we saw close to 500 Calgarians spread their mats, stretch their bodies, open their hearts and Salute the Sun right on Stephen Ave! The heart of Downtown Calgary! Amongst vendors, music, the hustle bustle of the city, we managed to find a few moments of inner peace.

There are certain events and festivals during the summer that I can’t wait for each year, and Calgary Folk Festival is certainly at the top of that list. The street style that I find each year is super cool and fun, and I love walking around the park enjoying the music while I scope out stylish friends and strangers.

This year was no exception – I even found a little bit of fur! And so it probably won’t come as surprise that this is my biggest post yet – 4 days of folk festival equals a tonne of awesome style!
