WICKED Ticket Lottery

By July 24, 2014 Theatre

Ruby slippers, a magical wizard, and a witch who isn’t as wicked as you’d think…

WICKED, The Untold Story of the Witches of OZ, has once again touched down in Calgary, and I want to make sure the entire city is in attendance at this magical production.

I’ve been lucky enough to have seen this award winning musical several times, and regardless off my seat location, you’ll still find me mumble-belting out ‘Defying Gravity’ prior to intermission.

I’ve sat everywhere; side stage, nose bleeds, but my favourite spot is the Orchestra level!

Typically an orchestra level seat will run upwards of $100 each performance.
But this Friday, I plan to have you in those seats for only $25!

How?

I’ll be hosting a ticket lottery this Friday, 2 hours prior to show time, at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium!

I’ll have 20 tickets to lotto off, $25 each, this Friday July 25th.

And at this lotto, the odds are in your favour!

Arrive at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium Friday, July 25th between 6:00pm-6:29pm and enter your name with me right inside the front doors.

At 6:30pm SHARP, I’ll close the ballot box and draw names.

If I pull your name (you must be in attendance) you’ll be given the chance to purchase 1 or 2 Orchestra Level tickets for only $25 (cash) for that night’s 8:00pm performance!!!

Yep, a huge savings & you’ll be in the best seats for this Grammy & Tony Award winning musical!

Olsen Fall/Winter ’14 Collection Preview

By July 23, 2014 M. Fab, Shop

Though it feels like summer just began; our feet are finally getting used to flip flops and our razors are dull from having to shave those legs all the time – I know us fashionistas are already looking forward to glimpses of what trends Fall and Winter fashion will hold.

Fall is my favourite time of the fashion year. Not too cold to have to conceal under puffy winter coats, but not warm enough to go out without that perfectly coordinated scarf.

I was lucky enough to be invited to the Olsen Fall/Winter ’14 Collection Preview in Toronto, and let me tell you it left me wishing away these hot summer days so I could wrap up in some of their luxurious knits and office-perfect ensembles.

20140722-201318-72798325.jpg

First – Olsen never compromises quality. Their easy-to-wear pieces can morph from casual to smart seamlessly and simply.

Take this amazing Fall collection dress for instance. In such an eye-catching colour and flattering shape, this is the perfect office-appropriate outfit, that when paired with your favourite heels and a clutch can take you to a ‘girls night out’ in no time.

20140722-201318-72798788.jpg

For the upcoming seasons, Olsen is celebrating classic silhouettes with a touch of whimsy.

Easy wear and easy care separates are a staple of Olsen’s new collections. I was seriously lusting after this amazing jersey moto-inspired jacket – best part? It’s machine washable!

20140722-201318-72798009.jpg

And ladies, their accessories will not disappoint. Now with more offerings than ever, find that luxurious slouchy knit and pair it with the perfect scarf.

20140722-201318-72798619.jpg

Find that bold, graphic blouse, now pair it with a chunky chain. What I loved about this piece was it was feather-light while still looking legit.

20140722-201319-72799020.jpg

Sustainable, ethical, and made for real women.

You can find Olsen across Canada inside select Bay locations and free standing stores.

3 Exciting Finds at Lukes Drug Mart

By July 22, 2014 Eat, Shop

If you’ve never heard of Lukes Drug Mart in Bridgeland, all you have to do is take a peek on social media. The Community Mini Mart seems to be all the craze lately, filling my feed with accolades from my Twitter friends.

So yesterday afternoon I decided to pay a little visit to the small community’s most raved about business to see what all the fuss was about.

20140721-173223-63143873.jpg

Lukes Drug Mart combines all the necessities of a larger chain drug store, including pharmacy and post office, but with a surprising twist:

Small boutique finds which have been sourced from around North America and beyond!

All the ‘noise’ I had heard about Lukes was true, and I too ended up walking away with a sack full of goodies I most likely would have never found anywhere else in the city!

Here are my 3 top finds from my shopping excursion yesterday.

McClure’s Garlic Pickles from Brooklyn, NY ($9.99).

LUKEs Calgary McClures Pickles

At $10 a jar I was a little hesitant about the purchase, but the crunchy and perfectly brined pickles were well worth the elevated price point… And the Brooklyn connection had me feeling Sex in the City – Miranda style.

Baxter of California Hand Lotion ($19.00).

LUKES DRUGMART Calgary Baxter Lotion

Smooth and silky, this is the most delightfully feminine hand cream with the sexiest manly smell. Have you ever noticed the shirtless guy BBQing on the balcony in the building across from you?… This is what I imagine he smells like!

Owl’s Brew Coco-Lada (on sale $6.99).

LUKES Owls Brew Mix

A Blend of Black Tea, Coconut, Chai Spices and Pineapple, this infused tea concentrate is the perfect flavour mix to enhance your next libation. 2 parts brew into 1 part booze and your next cocktail will have a splash of class! It can also doll up your Champers or Beer.

Lukes Drug Mart… you certainly are a sly one; I can’t wait to come and roam your aisles again soon!

Thanks for the delightful finds!

50 Days of Music

By July 21, 2014 Musical Mondays

To me Music is like fashion; If you like it, you like it.

Last night a pretty ingenious music event kicked off and I was just one of the lucky crowd members to be in attendance.

50 Days of Music with Ruben Young.

WR_Ruben_Young_Jul14

Day 1 introduced us to the artist and let us hear his sound.

Hundreds of some of the most attractive, music hungry 25-35 year olds piled into a tent in the middle of Currie Barracks, danced and sipped on the city’s local brews from Wild Rose Brewery.

20140720-134443-49483290.jpg

And now, for the remainer of the 50 days, Ruben Young will be poping up all over Calgary, sharing his musical talents in the most creative and unexpected ways.

Through the use of social media (Twitter/Instagram), you can request Ruben to perform for you!

By hashtagging #50DaysYYC and the date number you want him to show up, his hard working PR team will be booking him unique and interesting engagements.

20140720-134442-49482483.jpg

The more unique the idea, the better chance you’ll get noticed!

Here are a couple ideas I’ll be tweeting;

Day 14 Rafting down the Elbow, hop in a boat and play a few diddies for us! #50DaysYYC

Day 38 BBQ on my DT patio, I need music… and Songza’s not cutting it! #singforyoursupper #50DaysYYC

Now I’m not a millionaire but I have been told that Ruben is taking on some of these engagements at no charge so why not give it a shot.

Here’s a sample of his music, a Lana Del Rey cover he’s done: Trust me, you’ve never heard anything like it!

So start thinking of creative ways to enjoy 50 Days of Summer & Music and share them on Twitter!

Maybe it’s time for some back up music while you propose!

Throwback Thursday #2

By July 17, 2014 M. Fab, My Life

Today, M.Fab & I remember special moments from our youth; reliving those memories for all the other 80′s kids to enjoy!

Topsy Tail (Mr.Fab)

I’ll never forget the day I laid my eyes on this inventive little piece of moulded plastic. From that day on I yearned for long hair so I could flip my pony into the ultimate fashion statement.

The Golden Girls (M.Fab)

“Thank you for being a friend. Traveled down the road and back again. Your heart is true, you’re a pal and a confident. And if you threw a party, invited everyone you knew, you would see the biggest gift would be from me and the card attached would say ‘Thank you for being a friend’.”

Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia. These ladies told me dirty jokes before I even had the wherewithal to to know better. I loved their passion for cheesecake, their expression of friendship, their love of shoulder pads and how they made me hope for pals and confidents like these when I was old and grey.

My Buddy (Mr.Fab)

I wasn’t a very popular kid, so each Christmas I dreamt of finding the 5 foot box under the tree. He and I would be the best of friends, share each other’s clothes and even cheat on math tests. Sadly, he was never gifted to me and my lifelong BFF Buddy never happened.

20140716-193942-70782594.jpg

Degrassi Jr High (M.Fab)

Seriously, what was better than ‘Degrassi Jr. High’? Nothing, in my mind. The true-to-life characters, the ground-breaking story lines, the incredible fashion… I felt like these characters were people I knew (but with much better hair). Canadian TV was at its finest when making this series. I still get all nostalgic today when I hear an alarm clock ring…

See you next Thursday when we dig up and share more of our past!
