FLIP Fest is officially over, and I have finally had time to write a post on some of my latest travels including my trip to Missoula, Montana with Riley and Spencer. A couple weekends ago, we went to Missoula to go to Travelers' Rest - a weekend music festival curated by and featuring The Decemberists. The Decemberists have been one of my favourite bands since I was 12, and once I heard about the festival and the lineup, I had to go and was shocked by how lovely the drive to Montana and the city of Missoula turned out to be.Read More
For the past few months, I, along with an amazing group of people have been working hard to create Lethbridge's first femme music festival. Our goal is to create a safe and an inclusive music community while showcasing women and gender-non-conforming talent within our city. I am so thankful for those on our committee who have been working their butts off to make a festival like this possible. FLIP Fest takes place in Lethbridge, Alberta, August 18-20th. Follow along by following @flipmusicfest on Facebook and Instagram, and if you live in Lethbridge, we hope to see you there!
For those who don't know, activism and intersectional feminism are a huge part of my life. I've been so inspired by FLIP Fest and all of the amazing feminists in my life and on the internet, I have put together a list of some of my favourite femme power products by some of my favourite women and gender-non-conforming run businesses.Read More
This summer is all about staying positive regardless of how many hurdles I may face. I am keeping busy in ways I am not used to, but am now starting to love. In the process of organizing a market for Lethbridge's FLIP Fest (Lethbridge's first femme fest for women and gender-non-conforming artists), I have been making pom pom accessories non-stop, while creating new pin designs, and organizing upcoming collaborations for the blog. I am surprised and super excited that the art and accessories I create are finally "my job". I don't know how to put my excitement into words, but it doesn't quite feel real yet and I can't wait to see what the future has in store. Stay tuned for more!
This summer is also about flowy pants! I am pretty sure I have already said that but then I fell in love with these pants from Zara and my obsession started all over again. I had to snag them when they were put on sale, and you can snag your own here!Read More
