May Summer Faves

May Summer Faves

It’s June, which means that Calgary has finally reached the stage where we’re no longer afraid a snowstorm is going to rip through our streets. To celebrate that Calgary is tuning in with the rest of the world and actually having warm weather, this May Favourites post is going to centre around favourites I think are perfect for our Canadian two-month summer (the truth hurts when you realize we only get around 2 months of truly warm weather).

Calgary BibimBap Champion: Bowls, Korean YYC Restaurant Review

Calgary BibimBap Champion: Bowls, Korean YYC Restaurant Review

It’s been over a week since my last blog post, which is the first time I’ve gone off schedule for Fung Shui. Over the past week, I realized that with my spring class schedule, return to work, and overall need for some kind of relaxation, I’m going to need to cut down a bit with my posting. So, instead of twice a week, I’ll be posting once a week on Sundays from now on. Hopefully I’ll be able to make better posts once a week, and see where this goes from here!

Shopping Haul: Indigo Books vs. Three Gift Cards

Shopping Haul: Indigo Books vs. Three Gift Cards

I live in Canada, which means that instead of Barnes & Nobles, we have Indigo/Coles/Chapters book stores which are all owned by the same company. Lately, they’ve been converting all stores to Indigo, meaning that a lot of merchandise is beginning to focus on home and lifestyle products, like candles, Matt & Nat handbags, alphabet lightboxes, and the like.

Happy Mother’s Day: 22 Things I’m Grateful For During the 22 Years My Mom has been a Mom

Happy Mother’s Day!

I love my mom, and I know this sounds cheesy, but she is fearless, brave, and strong in ways I haven’t yet experienced. To recognize how much I love my mom on this day of mom-indulgence and mom-happiness, I wrote down twenty two things I’m grateful for during the twenty two years my mom has been a mom.

Calgary Date Night: Po-Ke Bowl Review & Bow River Walk

Calgary Date Night: Po-Ke Bowl Review & Bow River Walk

Setting foot in the foodie realm of Instagram is bound to leave you hungry, desperate, and volatile. Nearly every day, I see these pictures of beautiful Poke bowls from Calgary’s Po-Ke location waiting for me to eat them, and every day, I don’t. I was so desperate for a Poke bowl that I told Chris that we were going for our Friday date night, and that I didn’t care what he wanted for dinner (Chris wanted tacos, FYI).

Why I shouldn’t be a Food Blogger and Why I am One

Why I shouldn’t be a Food Blogger and Why I am One

I really, really shouldn’t be a food blogger, and here’s why: I have absolutely no authority on what is good food and what isn’t. Whenever I walk into a restaurant and start talking about the quality of the food, I feel like I have the same level of expertise as my dog who will eat a week-old charred chickpea off the kitchen floor. Continue reading “Why I shouldn’t be a Food Blogger and Why I am One”

#YYCTacoFiesta Anejo Restaurant

#YYCTacoFiesta Anejo Restaurant

Calgary’s 2017 Taco Fiesta invites restaurants from across the city to come up with some delicious taco concoctions. For each item bought in connection to the YYC Taco Fiesta, some proceeds go towards two charities: The Calgary Homeless Foundation and Kids Up Front. I don’t think I need to go into the details as to why this is a great initiative, but I believe every little bit counts towards serving those who are a part of our community.

April Faves

April Faves

It feels like a week ago that I wrote my March Faves blog post – can it really already be time for April Favourites?! That’s insane that we’re already a THIRD of the way into 2017, which means I only have about two thirds of a year left to accomplish everything I want to. AKA I need to learn everything I possibly can about blogging, and read and write about 10x more than I’m currently doing. Continue reading “April Faves”

Blogging Photography Tips & Tricks

Blogging Photography Tips & Tricks

Although I’m new to blogging and photography, I’ve picked up a few tips and tricks. I still have a long ways to go with my blog photography, and I’m envious of anyone who can pull together a gorgeous flatlay or snap a good food photo in one go. But photography is a slow and steady learning process, and I’ve finally gotten to the point where I have a few tips of my own to share. Continue reading “Blogging Photography Tips & Tricks”

An Update on Joanne

An Update on Joanne

This blog post is a quick one because I need this weekend to completely relax. With late nights at school/work, one all-nighter, and tears nearly every day, this blog post is a reflection of my current mental state: utter relief. For the first time in months, I’ve been able to truly, fully relax. Yesterday, I read a book just for my personal enjoyment. Continue reading “An Update on Joanne”
