Oh you know just on my way to vote against Calgary hosting the 2026 Winter Olympics because as exciting as the thought sounds, most Calgarians don't really stand to benefit.
The bid isn't tied to any projects that would improve the day to day lives of Calgarians long after the Olympics are gone (like the green line). Plus, positive aspects of the bid like the commitment to build affordable housing are usually the first to go when money is tight (they recently slashed 1000 units). Lets avoid having our city's finances being tied up with the Olympics for years to come.
I hope you all take some time to go vote today! Polls close at 8pm.

Today is World Kindness Day - a day to celebrate kindness, big and small. Whichever way you choose to celebrate, remember that the best thing about kindness is that it doesn't cost a thing! No act of kindness is ever wasted.
Pay it forward and pass it on! 💕
“Kind of surreal how big of an impact somebody can make in a short period of time, how somebody can feel like home no matter where you are just as long as you’re with them. Well that somebody is you and I’m unbelievably grateful for you and everything you do for me ! You push me to be a better person for that I can’t thank you enough. You are my happiness”💞💞

Spent all morning sewing new holiday products like this wine 🍷 coloured vegan leather scrunchie for the BARK POP UP @westelmcalgary this weekend! I will be making a few sets of matching bandanas for some of the scrunchies, especially the floral rifle paper prints which are a best seller! P.s. West Elm is dog friendly! 🐶

Olympic Plaza. The heart of Calgary. Our most cherished gathering place. In the winter, it is a free public skating rink, where anyone is free to lace up and have some fun. In the summer, it is filled with water and a fun place to play. Throughout the year, it is home to a variety of free festivals, from French to Arabic to Latino. It is a place where all the walks of life that inhabit this city come together in unity. Olympic Plaza is the beating heart of Calgary, and we would not have this special place if it weren't for the Olympics. The names on the bricks are the community members would donated their money to build it. The names of our Olympic champions can be found in the NE corner and the Olympic motto, Citius, Altius, Fortius beckons our city to aspire to go Faster, Higher, and Stronger.
#VoteYes today Calgary. The Winter Olympics in 1988 have made this city the amazing place we call home, and 2026 will make us even greater.
// CLOSED TODAY // A friendly reminder that classes are off today as #lakechaparralrecreationcentre is being used for a voting station. .

1000 subs!💃🏻 we have had a few questions about exactly how you can get involved! We are working on our website to make this more clear however here’s a quick introduction. At the moment there are two ways.
1) shoot a single YouTube video with this channel (the image above) for ‘she tries’ where you will be trying on and reviewing clothing. In exchange for your time you will receive your favourite item(s) from the haul as well as an extra little gift!
2) if you love being on camera, would like to add a new income source and are okay with a longer term commitment then perhaps we will work with you on your own channel. We handle 100% of the production, clothing cost, editing, channel management etc. All you have to do is show up, try on clothing (including bikini/lingerie) and collect a cheque.
DM us if you have any questions and if you’d like to apply head to our website Unlyshd.com

Yoga can be used as a tool to cope with stress, anxiety, depression and a host of other health issues. I've been wanting to incorporate yoga into my private practice for a while now as a complement to energy healing.
Yoga transformed my life many years ago and I was not an athletic, physical person. I was a sedentary office worker by day and couch potato by night!
I want to bring yoga to people who would never dream of setting foot in a yoga class! This compassionate, non-judgemental workshop is designed for someone who has never experienced yoga, and may feel self-conscious in a class setting. It will be a very special intimate group. When you're relaxed and comfortable in your surroundings, you learn more effectively.
The session will be held at Alberta Yoga College on Nov. 25 from 3 pm to 4:30 pm. There are nine spots left. We're going to be starting by clearing up common misconceptions about yoga including how yoga can be a healing tool for everyone and every body, not just skinny people who have fancy Lululemon clothing! All gear is included but if you have a yoga mat that you want to use, bring it. Dress comfortably. If you have questions, please get in touch with me! 💗
