new home...

Well I did it...bought a house with my boyfriend in Calgary. It happened so quick that I had complete break down. I mean come on...I'm moving cities, houses, away from my family (I'm a total Daddy's girl) and with my boyfriend who I just started going out with 7 months ago. But it's been a week and I can finally say I'm excited. It's a mid century modern home, it not quiet like the houses above (love to own one of them one day) and needs an update badly so my new obsession is Home. Everything to do with home.

on writing my editor's letter...

So I sit here trying to piece my editor's letter...Metric's Twilight Galaxy plays over and over in my head. This is where our new issue started with an interview with Emily Haines, her honestly inspires me. We f**k up and we follow our hearts and we soar. I have thrown myself into this magazine, sometimes I drop the ball because I get caught up in my dreamland and I don't pay attention to the small important details. But I follow the lead of my heart and do what I feel is right (even if some don't agree). With every cell in my body I know what Parlour is and what Parlour stands for and I do my best to make sure Parlour stays on it's course.

I'm changing my blog...I want my blog to be about me about what I go though with this wonderful magazine, my inspirations, my loves and everything in between. The hope is that I inspire you and for you to know you aren't alone in your ups and downs in following your dreams.

Miss Parlour

The new AGA

Last weekend I was lucky enough to get a press pass for The Refinery party at the new Art Gallery of Alberta. It was my first inside view of our new gallery and absolutely loved exploring every exhibit and every nook and cranny. I must say my favourite exhibit was the Karsh Image Maker...I could of spent hours getting lost in every photo.

Just a little horsing around...

The interactive BLOCKHEAD installation by local designer and artist Gabe Wong...we made our very own blockhead.
