Small Shop Lovin!

Recently I have been looking into small shop purchases rather than large corporations. I am an extremely detailed oriented person who enjoys not only the amazing customer service small shops give, but that extreme great details small shop products produce.

I am moving back home shortly and have been looking into product and room designs through great inspirations on instagram and pinterest, I have become inlove with simple, rustic, contemporary and classic designs. I am just starting this design journey so if there are any small shops you are inlove with, please comment or email email!!

This is just part one of this design journey that you and i will both be particpating in! This week I have an amazing product that i recently purchased from Needle and Pine, a local Calgary company that produces amazing mountain shelves and decor.

Travel Must Haves!!!

I have traveled lots in the last two months from Brooks to Lethbridge and now Edmonton. I currently am in the market for a new vehicle, so my main form of transportation is the Greyhound bus. Though I haven’t had this best experience using this form of transportation I have acquired some important travel essentials.

The first traveling essential is the most important, a large duffle or messenger bag that is easy to carry and pack. This bag was given to me as a gift, it is a black large duffle bag from Pink. I love all aspects of this bag from the little pockets inside, to the colour and versatility.

Here is the Black Duffle Bag I use!

 

 

Another great travel essential is a blanket scarf, these scarfs are great for these cold Canadian winters. I where mine as a scarf tell I get on the bus than while taking off my jacket i unravel my blanket scarf into a blanket. The Aritzia ones are gorgeous but there are plenty cheaper alternatives, mine in this photo was from a second-hand store in Invermere, British Colombia.

When traveling with a third party company sometimes your luggage can go missing. I travelers advice is to put any jewelry, electronics, and anything important and valuable into your carry on. I like to bring on my Aldo brown messenger bag or my Roxy backpack onto the bus with all of my valuables.
