Our 2019 Resolutions

Before I say anything else, you need to know that all the photos in this post were taken by my dear friend Jamie, who takes lots of nice photos – check out his Instagram account for more beautiful shots, particularly his cityscapes! I’m really excited about my goal for 2019 – in addition to a…

Christmas in November at Jasper Park Lodge

Christmas is almost here! Honestly, I’m usually pretty grouchy this time of year with all the shopping, crowds and festive chores, but this year has felt very different! Matt and I recently opened up our brand new home to host our second annual Christmas on the Side party (a potluck where we dine exclusively on…

OMO Teppan & Kitchen Launch Party

It was such an honour to be invited by Parker PR to tonight’s opening ceremonies and launch party at OMO Teppan & Kitchen. My dear friend Kim and I swung by the event to get a sense of what OMO is all about while trying a variety of their delicious offerings from cocktails and sushi…

Winefest 2018

We did it! We celebrated our first Winefest and lived to tell the tale. I’ll do my best to cover the highlights, but I have to admit that my memory of each individual wine has been left a little fuzzy. But speaking of celebrations – happy first anniversary to me! Matt sweetly reminded me this afternoon…

New Menu Tasting at Jugo Juice

I am in a long-term relationship with Jugo Juice. JJ was there for me when I first moved out on my own to U of C from Red Deer, but as a result, most of my student line of credit was spent on Watermelon Wiggles. JJ was there for me during my first big breakup,…

Jack Daniel’s Rye Launch Party at Sub Rosa YYC

I’m pretty sure I scored the title of Coolest Wife Ever (temporarily until my next hangry meltdown) when I dragged Matt through last night’s blizzard to the official Canadian launch of Jack Daniel’s Rye at Sub Rosa YYC, the literal underground lounge tucked underneath the Guild on Stephen Ave. The event was organized by Evangeline…

Hungry in Love (and on a short break!)

Friends! This week has been a whirlwind – Work was busy, I checked out the Block with Parker PR, I finally started watching Shameless on Netflix, I got my first French manicure (hello food closeups!) and then Matt officially became Mr. Hungry in Calgary when we said our vows in front of 85 of our nearest…

Parker PR Media Mingle at Block Kitchen & Lounge

Guys, you know I’m not fancy, but I was so delighted to celebrate a restaurant’s third anniversary with a media mingle at Block Kitchen and Lounge organized by Parker PR. Ellen Parker and her team work on some of my favourite Calgarian events and brands, like Beakerhead, Calgary Folk Fest and Oak Tree Tavern, to name a few….

Foodie Night at Nando’s Mahogany

I had zero chill when Nando’s Canada invited me to a special event at their new location in Mahogany. Most of what I captured was not usable because I was literally shaking with excitement about being surrounded by all that PERi PERi sauce. I took photos instead of videos and videos instead of photos. I chatted with…
