As most of you know by now last year I took the leap and started blogging and event planning for myself full time, this means I’m my own boss but I also get to do so many things that I want to: like plan monthly brunches for #bossbabes.
When people used to say the words “Love Yourself” I’d cringe. Why you may ask?
1) I didn’t love myself or know who I was until I turned 19.
2) The idea of loving yourself and putting yourself first is a hard ass concept, at least to me.
3) I wasn’t confident with who I was or myself.
When Manulife Place asked me to take part in the Show Us Your Edmonton Style Campaign, I was obviously thrilled. In terms of luxe shopping Manulife Place is HEAVEN. They have so many amazing retailers that range from small locally owned boutiques such as Swish, Night Owl and Blu’s to Holt Renfrew. They also have great places to meet for a quick lunch like Zenari’s or if you’re feeling fancy you can eat at Holt’s Cafe— which is one of my personal favourite lunch spots.
As usual I’ve been travelling and this time I chose somewhere close to home with TONS to offer: Calgary.
When I think of fashion in Alberta generally my mind goes to Calgary: they not only have more variety but it’s also filled with loads of local gems.
