Right on Target


This morning I had the wonderful opportunity to go for a tour of one of the new Calgary Target stores a day before it opened. This one in Market Mall, as well as the stores in Chinook Center and Forest Lawn and seven other locations in Alberta will be soft opening May 7th. The Target in Shawnessy will open May 14th and the grand opening for all is scheduled for May 24.


It was quite the experience to be in a new store in which no one has shopped in. The “team members” were all busy with final touches, looking sharp in their Target red and khaki outfits. The layout is totally redone from when Zellers previously occupied the space and it’s all shiny and red and white.

Target carries a lot of great brands such as Papyrus, Mossimo Supply Co, Dyson, Apple, Kitchen Aid, Sonia Kashuk, Pixi, and tons more. They also do limited time collaborations, Roots and Sam & Libby, and are planning to do more with Canadian designers. I was quiet impressed with how fashion forward the maternity collections are.

There are lots of ideas and products for organising.

Unicorn bank anyone? When I went to a target in the states years ago I bought a set of Simply Shabby Chic sheets in a cabbage rose print and they are still my favourite! They’re great for summer as they always feel nice and crisp. I’m so excited that Target still has this line!


Our tour guide, John Morioka Sr. Vice of Merchandise, told us that Target is testing these bright beauty displays in Canadian stores. With three rows of every beauty product imaginable I’m sure they’ll be a hit.




Mr. Morioka is explaining about how Target tries to stay freah and on trend with their products. They have an Expect more. Pay less. brand promise which is sure to please plenty of new customers.




You might be wondering, like I was, why there are no lights on in the ice cream freezer? Simple, the lights come on as you walk by! How cool is that? Sorry about the pun. Lol

These cereals, a target exclusive brand, include chocolate chunk hazelnut biscotti and French vanilla almond crunch. Yum!


This packaging is designed by textile designer Orla Kiely. Another Target exclusive.


Because who wants a sales person hovering around you. When I need help I’ll just summon someone with the press of a handy button.


This has got to be the cutest gift card ever!

So who’s excited to go see what all the fuss is about? I’m definitely stoked to go back when I can actually purchase instead of just looking at longingly.

You can learn more at their website www.target.ca or follow them on facebook www.facebook.com/TargetCanada or twitter www.twitter.com/target.ca

What is your favorite thing you’ve purcheased at Target? Or what are you looking forward to buying?


I had such a informative and fun time on the tour. I can’t wait to get my hands on all the cute things I saw!

Hello Mr. Fluevog!

I’ve been lusting after John Fluevog’s shoes for years now. I like the funkiness and the uniqueness. They seem to have quite a loyal following! So imagine my excitement when I scored not one but two pairs of shoes for more then 1/2 off! It was quite an epic excitement level.

I ordered these off the John Fluevog website and am very pleased with the service and promptness of delivery. The store had run out of my size and an associate kindly phoned me to see if I would like a half size up. This worked out well as the shoes fit perfectly! I Can’t wait to put together an amazing outfit to complement my amazing shoes and take them for a tour around town!

Since I purchased these on International Fluevog Day I also got a deck of cards. Very nice, although maybe a bit of distraction while playing a hand. Ooohhh look at these ones!

Conclusion  There’s nothing like a new pair of shoes to lift your soul! and your other soles too!

New blog, New shoes

So this is my very first blog post. I’ve been meaning to start a blog for a while and here it is! Ta Da!

I went into Nine West yesterday. Lured by the sale signs in the window. It’s hard for me to pass up a sale sign in a shoe store. I first saw the Vintage America Collection in the Bay, but they didn’t have my size. I like just about every shoe in this collection, but i had to limit my selection to these babies.

Besides looking super cute with a skirt and tights, they were 25% off, and Bonus! I needed to go down a size!
