URBAN EXPLORER X YYC | INGLEWOOD

0 comments



Often when I travel, I'm always searching for the unique hidden gems and cool coffee shops. But why not do that for our own city? Calgary is always full of surprises and beautiful history - it's time to explore, pick up the camera and act as a tourist in our own city.

So excited to announce this collaboration with my dear friend Cathy from For Two, Please who is an adventurous travel + food blogger from Calgary. We will be starting up a series Urban Explorer X YYC where we'll be hitting up the streets of all the different communities and spot out all the amazing places to be.

First stop, Inglewood.



When it comes to coffee, Rosso is our top go-to spot to fuel our day. Needless to say, their coffee is of exceptional quality. What is equally impressive is the aesthetically pleasing decor. The semi-circular couch at the front is our favourite corner to soak up the sunshine and enjoy a drink or meal with friends.




Ladies, if you’re looking for something trendy and exclusive - Adorn is the place to be. Located in the heart of inglewood, this fashion forward boutique is always striving to add the extra touch of statement. From beautiful tops, dresses + rompers to wedding essentials - Adorn will always have something pretty for you.


The rustic wooden shelves, vintage spice tins, scratches on the hardwood floors… nothing captures the history as well as Silk Road Spice Merchant does. Housed in the historic Gresham Block, the Silk Road preserves past memories of the 1900s while presenting extensive selection of spices, herbs and chilies from around the world. You can find almost every kind of spice and herb imaginable - a true paradise for food lovers!


This shop really has the perfect simple vibes for minimal enthusiasts. Fresh Laundry focuses on curating products that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also elements with organic compounds. They range from bath + body products to beautiful modern day decor. This will definitely be our first stop when it’s time to design our first home.



Walking into Plant is like stepping into a magical fairyland. Being surrounded by beautifully designed glass terrariums, cute little succulents and cacti, and exotic tropical plants will instantly put you in a calm, meditative state of mind. It is easy to get lost once you set foot in there, and forget time altogether!
Thank you for following us along this adventure, next stop East Village!

I've always hated smiling with my teeth showing but I don't have to anymore!
I've been introduced to coco oil pulling by Kismet*

And my first question was "what's coco oil pulling?"

Alright, let me explain - it's an ancient way to get whiter teeth and fresher breath.
The steps are as easy as swishing a small amount of coconut oil in your mouth for about 10-20 minutes and it is said to draw toxins out of your body.

Swishing coconut oil in your mouth does feel weird but...
I saw results right away! 

I usually use the coco rinse right before showering and I swish it till I'm finished.
It doesn't have to be a fast swish, just regular back and forth motion is fine but try to really bring it around all the teeth including the back molars. And then spit it out in the trash can, not sink - cause it can clog. Easy as that and after my first try - my mouth felt so clean, not oily like I thought it would be and literally a shade whiter. So of course, after the first use being so impressive; I started to use it twice a week and brush+floss after.


Aside from the whitening, it is said to have many other benefits like:

Fresher Breath | Improve Digestion | Reduce Headaches | Cleaner Tongue + Mouth | Better Immune System | Healthier Gums | Reduce Plaque | Clearer, Softer Skin | Improve Skin Conditions like Eczema, Psoriasis | Balance Hormones


Definitely recommend on giving it a try, it's fast + easy!
And way more healthier than using chemical whitening.
