Celebrating our 2nd Birthday this year, we want to say a BIG Thank You to each and every one of you. Thank you for your support, for your love and for giving us the opportunity to do what we love.
we have lots to celebrate, and we want to celebrate with all of you! to finish off our birthday party we want to send a couple of lucky winners home with - some very special 'Treat Bags' here in YYC. These treat bags are filled with some of my VERY favourite LOCAL things. I am so excited to share this with you!
1. Casey Boda Photography (www.caseyboda.com, @caseyboda)
Casey is an up and coming photographer here in YYC with an incredible talent for capturing those special, important moments of you with your loved ones. I have had the pleasure of working with Casey and had her capture some of my own special moments with my family. I am so excited to share with you this amazing gift - a 30 minute Portrait session of you with your loved ones.
2. Little Tucker (www.littletucker.ca, @littletuckeryyc)
Laura is the brains & creator behind the DELICIOUS, healthy treats of Little Tucker. Her Energy Bites are definitely a fave of mine and a snack I rely on to carry me through the day after a workout class and/or running between meetings. You can find her raw, all natural, plant-based, gluten-free, and dairy free bites and treats at a number of places around town, and now out of the space she shares with Well Juice in Inglewood. Enjoy a goodie box of Energy Balls from Little Tucker as part of this treat bag.
3. Routine Cream (www.routinecream.com, @routinecream)
I lead an active life. Between workout classes, running around with my three year old daughter and running a business - I need a deodorant I can count on. I love the idea of a natural deodorant, but to be honest - I used to be the kind of girl that carried my "natural" product around with the regular as a back up. Until I found ROUTINE. I love this brand. I love the product and it works LIKE A CHARM. Definitely one of my favourites by far and it's made right here in YYC. Available at a number of places including Junction 9 Yoga Studio and Luke's Drug Mart. Our treat bag includes this brand new scent from Routine Deodorant "Sexy Sadie".
4. Phil & Sebastien Coffee (www.philsebastian.com, @philandseb)
I am a bit of a coffee addict. We are fortunate to have a number of amazing coffee companies here in Calgary. This particular add-on to our Treat Bag comes from one of the first coffee shops I ever visited here in Calgary. Not only am I a frequent coffee drinker at P&S, but I often refer to it as my second office, not only for the great atmosphere but some of the best staff you'll find. Grab a java from P&S in Marda Loop, Mission, Chinook Mall, and NOW at their brand new location down on Stephen Avenue. This treat bag includes a bag of coffee beans from Phil & Sebastian.
5. Milk Jar Candle Co. (@milkjarcandleco)
Holly is new to the small business scene here in Calgary, but you wouldn't know it with the beautiful scents, packaging and branding that she has created with Milk Jar Candle Co. A handful of scents to select from with these 100% Soy Wax Candles made here in YYC. As part of our treat bag, enjoy this "French Laundry" scented candle from Milk Jar Candle Co.
6. Hed Kandi (www.hedkandisalon.com, @hedkandisalon)
I moved to Calgary almost 10 years ago...and SERIOUSLY the hardest part about moving was leaving behind my hair dresser. It took me some time to find a great fit, but when I met Chrissy at Hed Kandi - I knew I'd found my place. Not only do I have an incredible stylist, but I can't say enough about the customer service. I've had the opportunity to met Jereme, the founder of Hed Kandi and love what he stands for as a business owner, the environment he creates for his staff and for their customers, but also their involvement in the community. You can also check out "Butter" for a number of spa services and a quick blo-dry AND the newest concept - Johnny's Barber Shop in downtown YYC. As part of this treat bag enjoy these 3 Bumble & Bumble hair products as well as a $50.00 Gift Card to use towards any service at Hed Kandi or Butter Salon.
7. Made By Marcus (www.madebymarcus.ca, @madebymarcus)
No favourite list of mine would be complete without Ice Cream. Made by Marcus is the BEST. The best. In my house - these are the jars I hide at the back of the freezer. If you haven't tried it, I don't know what you're waiting for. This treat bag includes a box of DELICIOUS Macaron's as well as a $20.00 Gift Card to pick out your ice cream.
8. Junction 9 Yoga & Pilates (www.junction9.ca, @junction_9)
This is a second home for me. Since moving to Calgary, Yoga has become a big part of my life. Junction 9 opened it's doors just over 2 years ago and is home to some of this community's most amazing teachers, leaders and visionaries. The heart of this studio is community and you won't find a better place in this city to connect, rejuvenate and be inspired. If you haven't checked out this beautiful space yet, it's a must. We have included a FREE Yoga Class at Junction 9 as part of this treat bag.
9. Fond Boutique (www.fondboutique.ca, @fondboutique)
Consignment is the NEW Black in 2017 and Fond Boutique is leading the pack. Thoughtfully curated consignment, the duo behind this brand provides more than a rack of clothes to shop. Styling Tips, Wardrobe advice and an affordable option to up-to-date fashion. Watch out for these gals in the YYC business scene. Included in our treat bag is a $50.00 Credit to Shop at Fond Boutique.
