Arnold Churgin: A Tale of Mountains & Good shoes

What good are mountain adventures without good shoes? Long before I started getting into photography, I was shopping at Arnold Churgin with my mom, a Calgary based shoe company that started in 1964. More than often, my wardrobe is a mixture of outdoor boots, pumps and boots from their shops. They have 4 locations in town, but also […]

A Weekend With car2go

This weekend, I spent my time testing out car2go’s new next-gen smart cars.

My cousins came across this restaurant, Maison Blanche, during the stages of our planning and booked us in for 8:30pm with the Degustation […]

Product: Pocket Pharmacy

  This week was a depressing one. The Canada Day long weekend had come and gone, and I found myself staring off into space a lot as I sat at my desk recalling the hike from the past weekend to Lake Agnes. I’d done that hike once before, but it was refreshing to revisit it without the […]

Product: My Perfect Little Travel Kit

Today was a good day. There isn’t anything that feels better than receiving a package in the mail, especially in the midst of a long and draggy Wednesday afternoon. So that in mind, I wasn’t waiting until I got home to open up my goodies. I love opening up boxes from Saje Natural Wellness, they smell […]
