Angela Dione and Angel Guerra were onto something when they created Market Collective, an independent market, giving local artists and budding entrepreneurs a place to call "home". After spending the last three days in the East Village, at their seven year anniversary event in RiverWalk Plaza, there is no question in my mind that we are now living in the "Age of the Entrepreneur"!

I have worked with many photographers in my lifetime, many of which during my years modelling for Elite in Toronto. The photographers were typically men, between the ages of 30 to 50 years, were incredibly serious, wouldn't strike up a conversation, didn't make eye contact, and rarely smiled. Marta Tomašir is NOT your typical photographer.

Growing up in a small town with only four television channels (and long before smartphones, tablets or the Internet even existed), playing "dress up" with my friends was one of my most favourite things to do. I remember transforming four dining chairs and a bed sheet into a secret world where we could be anyone and do anything imaginable. Luckily, being the youngest of four sisters, colourful fashions, glittery accessories and an endless supply of pink lipstick and eyeliner were always within reach.

Like most Canadians, I gravitate to warmer beverages most months of the year (because the weather is typically cold and a coffee shop is just five minutes away). Lemonade was never something that I legitimately craved (most likely because my three older sisters played pranks on me when I was little and liked using sour lemons as weapons) ... but that all changed when I stumbled across Family Squeezed Lemonade!

Have you ever been afraid of something ... so afraid that you've become paralyzed or even stopped doing the things that made you truly happy? This fear can change your whole world overnight.

My fondest memories of living in the United States included hot summer days with my best friends (and volleyball teammates), refreshing margaritas and authentic Mexican food. My mouth is watering just thinking about zesty salsa and chips, table side hand-smashed guacamole and fish tacos with freshly made flour tortillas. When I moved back to Calgary last year I was sad to leave that behind ... until I found Añejo!

It's hard to miss the Sticky Ricky's food truck rolling down Calgary streets in the summer time! With its Louisiana State University (LSU) inspired colours and shiny exterior you would think a party is coming to town. But ... don't let the purple food truck or compostable food containers fool you! What these guys dish out every day is pure culinary genius!

Calgary may be known as Canada's "energy capital" but a growing number of entrepreneurs, armed with an innovative spirit and desire to make their passion their career, are also doing their part to grow and expand the city's economy! With the oil and gas sector showing its vulnerability this past year it's no surprise more and more people are investing less in commodities and more in themselves by starting up their own home-based business!

The day I stumbled into Heart's Choices Thai Vegan Cafe after hot yoga (with "yoga brain" in full effect) I knew in my gut there was something very special about this place. It wasn't until today that I truly understood the reasons why.
