Friday Favourites* – Volume 1

I’ve decided to start a weekly round up of 5 of my favourite things from the week! They may be recipes, blog discoveries, music, books, fashion, entertainment.. who knows!

Here it goes for Week #1.

In no particular order:

Homemade Twix Bars from Gingerbread Bagels!

I need to make these. Stat. The recipe uses saltine crackers! I love me some salt and sweet!

Kooza by Cirque du Soleil!


Cirque du Soleil is back in Calgary, and I’m so so glad I got a chance to see it this time. I was thoroughly entertained from start to finish! If it happens to be touring through your neck of the woods…. GO! You won’t regret it!

Friday Socks by drywell on Etsy


This print adorable little print made me laugh out loud. Are you wearing your Friday socks?

The Happy Poet


This is an endearing movie about an out of work poet who opens an organic food cart. Paul Gordon, who wrote, directed and stars in the movie does a wonderful job of creating quirkly, lovable characters. I was smiling the whole way through. It’s here as part of the Calgary International Film Festival, but there are dates on the website for further screening information.

Caramel Apple Surprise Cookies from Hot Polka Dot


Hot Polka Dot is quickly becoming one of my favourite blogs! Lindsey keeps posting these amazing recipes that she comes up with on her own! Thank heavens my boyfriend has a Bake Sale fundraiser for work this week, or we would have to devour these beauties all on our own.


* This spelling of favourite might look strange so some, but this is how we spell it in Canada! Blame the Brits! ;)


  1. I was in Vegas and did not get to see the Cirque du Soleil. So jealous!!! And those Twix bars look divine.

  2. Oh thank you so much for choosing me as one of your favorites for the week! That means a lot to me. :) You totally made my day!

  3. Thanks very much for featuring my cookies! I'm so glad you like them! I especially enjoyed your disclaimer about the spelling of favourite. We spell it right. ;)
