Win Big with Shaw’s Charity Classic

By July 29, 2015 Charity, Giveaway, Sports

FORE!

Who doesn’t love a good game of golf!?

And last year, at the Shaw Charity Classic, it was exceptionally good!

Fred Couples, one of the greatest names on the PGA Champions Tour, won the 2014 event in thrilling fashion after a career-best final round of 61 that included a chip-in eagle on the 54th hole.

I was literally watching while clutching my pearls!

(I’m pretty sure you can see a blurry me in the background)

The only thing that would have made that day more exciting would have been if I were to have met Fred Couples.

Well this year, it could happen!

From July 29th to August 5th (weekdays only) you can win your chance to meet Freddie and an amazing tournament prize pack by participating in the Shaw Chip ‘n Putt Challenge!

It’s simple!

People of all ages and skill level are invited to come and put their short game to the test in a four-hole showdown that includes three holes of putting and one chipping contest for golfers of all levels.

The specially designed course inspired by the closing holes at Canyon Meadows Golf and Country Club will be located in the heart of downtown at 239 – 8th Avenue SW.

The competition will be broken into three separate components including qualification rounds, semi-finals, and the final showdown on the 18th green at Canyon Meadows with Fred Couples.

The top scorer of each day plus the next three runners-up will all advance to the semi-finals on August 5.

So you don’t even need to be the ‘best’ to move on!

I’ve been practicing my ‘chip shot’ with my niece & nephew and we’re planning to make it to the semi finals!

There will be lots of prizes to be won!

The eight semi-finalists will be awarded a prize pack including signed memorabilia and the choice of a Taylor Made putter or wedge. While the champion will also enjoy Sky Box passes on the 18th hole for the weekend, and an honourary observer spot with Fred Couples.

It’s a fun, free activity, so gather up the family and put your skills to the test!

See you there!

239 – 8th Avenue SW.

Drink German Riesling. Win a Trip to Berlin!

By July 28, 2015 Drink, M. Fab

July and August are German Riesling appreciation months, and I do appreciate.

Rieslings to me are the all-purpose wine. A delightful summer go-to for patio sitting, BBQ eating and spritzer making.

And Germany is home to many amazing Rieslings which are primarily grown in their Mosel, Rheingau and Pfalz regions.

While living in Amsterdam, travelling to nearby Germany was one of our favourite pastimes. One of the most scenic and simply magical trips was through the Mosel Valley. It has got to be one of the most beautiful wine growing regions in the world.

It’s like a fairytale that actually exists!

Castles at every turn, lush green hills covered with vineyards all anchored by the majestic Mosel River.

There are so many incredible places in Germany to discover, and not only for their wine.

Another all-time favourite travel destination is Berlin. A city like no other. Incredible history, amazing architecture, great food, rich culture and so much to see!

Berlin

And right now, by indulging in delicious wine you could also be lucky enough to indulge in the culture of an amazing city too!

By drinking a glass of German Riesling this summer, you can enter to win an incredible trip to Berlin.

You can learn more about this super fab contest, here.

And although I’ve had my chance to see Berlin once… I’ll still be battling for entries with you!

May the best sipper win!

Cheers! (Or, “Prost” in German)

RICH by Veuve Clicquot

By July 27, 2015 Drink, Opening

I am not rich.

Veuve Clicquot is RICH!

Over the last 3 years something special has been resting in the Champagne region, and this month Veuve Clicquot is proud to introduce their new product to the market.

Last week myself and Mlle Fab, who was visiting from Montreal, were invited to an opulent tasting event at the beautiful Azuridge Resort to be the first in Alberta to taste RICH.

But unlike any other champagne in the world, Veuve Clicquot will have you sipping your bubbles very differently. 

RICH is meant to be served over ice AND with some delicious accompaniments.

While RICH sat in the cellar in France, the Parisian brand spent 2 years tasting & testing its best side kicks…

And what they settled on where 6 perfect pairings.


Peppers, cucumbers, pineapple, celery, grapefruit zest… And even steeped with earl grey tea.

The concept is not only incredibly unique, it’s also incredibly delicious.

And although the accompaniments will be easy to source… RICH, however will not be.

For example, in Calgary, AB, there will only be 1 retailer of this very exclusive and limited product (available at ZYN) as the total production of RICH is only approximately 2% of what Veuve Clicquot produces overall.

You’ll also be able to get RICH served to you at Azuridge, the only establishment with the privilege to serve it!

So what’s makes RICH so special and sets it apart from their classic yellow label?

Besides the higher sugar level: 60 grams per liter as opposed to the yellow labels 9 grams, it’s the trifecta of grapes.


45% Pinot Noir 

15% Chardonnay 

With the remainder being Pinot Meunier

In laymans terms;

A Rowdy deliciousness with a high level of sophistication! 

This is indeed the richest I’ve ever been.

And I liked it… A lot!

Summer Fitness Must Haves

By July 23, 2015 Beauty, Face, Fitness, Mlle Fab, Uncategorized

Birds are chirping. Flowers are bursting. And, I am BEAMING. New life is all around and I ADORE it. Only thing to make it better are some can’t live without ’em summer fitness items!

  1. Fabletics

 

Being a certified personal trainer, I live in my workout gear. After receiving a gift from Kate Hudson’s line, Fabletics, I put the pants to the test. Cross training in Montréal, to Krav Maga in Arizona, to Ashtanga in Mexico, to kayaking in Alaska. These pants not only kept up, but they looked cute while holding everything in place with amazing fabric. Plus, no see-through bottom!

  1. Theracurmin

I love to run. I know it’s bad for my joints, but I’ve found something to help: Theracurmin. After religiously taking this all natural anti-inflammatory for 4 weeks, my knees no longer ache après a big run. Hallelu-theracurmin!

  1. BASS Hairbrush

 

Getting locks up & out of the way is essential in summer. BASS to the rescue! A combination of all natural boar & nylon bristles are your strands’ best friend – distributes natural oils to ends of hair shaft. I’ve broken numerous brushes on this head of hair, but this well made brush is fan-freaking-tastic. My thick/wavy haired amies, rejoice!

  1. Trekfit App

No budget for the gym? Bonjour, Trekfit App! Completely portable & user friendly. Finds an outdoor “jungle gym” in a park near you. (Can’t find one? Make a request for your ‘hood.)

Gives guided video options for workouts. And, it’s completely FREE! Get your derrière in top form at your own pace while saving pennies for cervezas.

  1. Dermalogica Super Sensitive Shield SPF 30

Sun-kissed over sun-dried. Always. Protect without clogging pores? Bienvenue my new fav product! Après using Dermalogica Super Sensitive Shield SPF 30 for 10k runs & HIIT sessions in +25 weather outdoors, I’m pleased to share I have had nary a burn nor a breakout! The bonus, chemical-free & reinforces barrier lipids (salut, moisture) so sensitive skin users can rejoice. Protect your pretty visage and keep the leather for the handbag 😉.

Hal & Joanne had it right: Keep fit & have fun with awesome products, mes beautés!

Bisous,
Mlle Fab itness Femme
