part and parcel: Irene.

this little slice of the internet has introduced me to a lot of lovely people. it was an incredible gateway for me meeting new people once i moved to calgary almost six years ago (what? six!?)

one of those great people is Irene – you may know her as @heyseto! as a born and raised calgarian she’s basically a unicorn. and for that reason, she’s also my oracle for when i want to know something great about this city i’m calling home. Irene knows the pulse of the city and makes an effort to keep ahead of the curve when it comes to new and local.

who better to dish the essentials for any wild rose country lady? check out Irene’s calgary localist must-haves:

 

happy camper crewneck
i think every girl in calgary already has a Camp Brand Goods “happy camper” sweatshirt and if they don’t, they need to get one. i have had mine for many years now and it is super worn in and well-loved. {laura’s note: i have one, too!}

artisan bonbons
sometimes you just need to treat ‘yo self with these delectables from the chocolate lab.

peppermint lip butter
that dry calgary weather means some extra work on my skincare regime. Rocky Mountain Soap’s chapsticks are great for keeping those lips smooth and kiss-worthy. i like the peppermint for a little extra tingle. {laura’s note: one of erin’s favourites, too}

alpine studs
i love these beautiful earrings because they let me take keep the mountains with me.

alberta pin
a chance to show off my alberta love in a simple little pin.

wild rose beauty balm
Neal’s Yard Remedies also has rich and creamy moisturizers to help rehydrate your skin. i like the wild rose beauty balm because it covers all your skincare bases. {laura’s note: one of my favourites, and one of tanya’s, too}

dote magazine
a copy of dote magazine to read up on the latest style and décor trends in calgary. plus it makes for the perfect adornment on the coffee table.

peter
peter is the most delicious cold-pressed juice. perhaps it’s due to the fact that juice because somehow made carrot juice so palatable or that it reminds me of childhood stories of peter rabbit.


what are your local must-haves?
