Looking for somewhere to let off some steam this weekend, check out the grand opening of Winnipeg’s new Exchange location. One could refer to it as the new ‘it’ place, but that often means limited, which it is not – … Continue reading

Monday is for MZ Studios

You know people that you meet who dream up & build amazing things to leave you wondering, how in the h-e-double hockey sticks do they do that? For me, one of those creators is a prairie guy who towers over most. I come … Continue reading

Healing powers of dreaming…

With T-minus 4 days until I (crossing my fingers) get this heavy, cage-like, debilitating, pain-in-the-ass cast off, I have with no shame admitting that I spent the afternoon perusing the internet. I did so dreaming of the charming shoes (yes, … Continue reading

‘Out to the walk of stars, now you in Cali’

I was in LA this past July with a coterie of close ladies for a bachelorette party. It was not a first time for anyone included, jaunting across borders – a group of tight knit Canadian prairie girls – just this time heading to SoCal, it was a 3 day whirlwind. With rooms at Hollywood’s Roosevelt, a packed & very suitable itinerary, we were jumping in and out of Ubers, weaving our way through delectable restaurants, popping into poolside parties & sipping champagne on couches of every second store we hit on Sunset & Robertson Blvd.

Some waited patiently for another or bounced ahead to a next favourite stop while others took turns browsing favourite designers in they were focused on. Well for most of us this was the case. In my bubble, I was along for the  experience, company & bubbly. I am not a huge shopping fashion-ado. I love clothing, shoes, accessories, etc., I just am not a browser. I didn’t have anything on my random & unfocused mind to collect. That doesn’t mean it wasn’t a memorable and wonderful experience. Sometimes not needing a reason to hang out with some of your best friends and tagging along with each other is the best chance to make fun memories.

Champs is always liftings, but in this chilly season (and not being graced with an LA breeze), cheers to friends with this cozy drink.

My favourite ‘gift to myself’ that I picked up in LA is a Sephora treasure by Bumble & Bumble. I am now obsessed. So are my friends…

Going to be poolside with a bachelorette? Pin one of these on her!

Also, if you make it to West Hollywood for some strolling down Robertson Blvd, take a break and be sure to have a bevy at their bar and dine on amazing pizza here….you may end up star-struck…

And if you are travelling, not renting a car/not driving to be socially responsible, always check out if your chosen city for upcoming debauchery has Uber. It will leave you with more in your pocket for shopping, dining or maybe saving a few $$ to slap into your savings account upon returning home! I know you’ll pick the last option, right? Always.

With an impossible amount of songs that can make you dream of the palm trees and views of the Hollywood sign, I don’t know how you pick a favourite, but here is a great one to enjoy while on on this pacific roll…
