Check out this blog post from Amanda at Lightside Photography. It features the lovely moi. Amanda has an amazing concept: 30 days of Edmonton. Out of Amanda's own mouth (via her blog):
Say hello to my newest brain child, 30 Days of Edmonton. (Isn’t she beautiful???) This project is close to my heart, because, well…I really like to shop, and eat, and be involved in my community. So, I decided to highlight a few of my favourite places throughout Edmonton that are locally owned…and by a few, I mean 30. That counts as a few, right? Ok, so the dictionary might argue otherwise. Originally I had set out to accomplish this mission before Christmas, and then I found out that I may be a little crazy in thinking that would actually be possible…but you know what? I’m going to go for it anyway! (yikes!) So I hope you will follow me as I chat with the dreamers and workers that shape our community and hopefully I will have inspired you to visit some of these local treasures.
Fills my heart with joy! Can't wait to read about other shops and hopefully discover a few new ones! Make sure you follow her; we need to continue to support as many small local businesses as we can.

we also received more treasures from bennie & olive, including bunny scarves (navy only), coin purses, and luggage tags. we also just received a batch of new books from Simply Read Books, including this gem:
This lovely book is a Michif Alphabet book; the Michif language is the language of the Metis people, which combines Cree and French.

And, best of all, we are debuting our Nokomis Holiday Line! Pillows! Tea Cup Candles! Silk Screen Hoodies! Get a head start on holiday shopping (or at least pick up a few things for yourself. A good ratio when buying for others: one gift for them/one gift for you).
We should even have a few holiday dresses in from local sweetheart Maked!
So, uh, basically: fun! party! wine! merci!

Nokomis’ unofficial occupational health nurse (-ing student) here. I hope you have all been enjoying the uncharacteristic balmy weather and taking every chance to get outside! I have only just emerged from the library with the tell tale post midterm pallor and squinting eyes. It has been nice to spend an afternoon in the store, reintegrating into society, and eyeing all the pretty clothes and jewels we’ve received in the past few weeks.
One thing that helps me to get up and get to the library on weekends is to say no to the sweatpants and pick out a stylish and comfortable ensemble instead. In a program where I spend a significant amount of time in scrubs, why waste an opportunity to wear my favorite pieces?
Here are a few of my picks from the store suitable for an afternoon of studying and a subsequent coffee date with the cutie in the cubicle next to yours.
I love sweater dresses! It’s like wearing a well tailored blanket, where can you go wrong?

I met the very talented Meghan Irish of Dru’s Design’s at Nokomis’ October Trunk Show and got a sneak peak at Spring 2011…good things are to come! For now you can pick up one of these a-ma-zing shirts (small, medium and large left in store). I wear mine all the time!

This is to play the stuck in the library blues:

Finally where would you be without a Smoking Lily book bag and Regional Assembly of Text notebook?

Hope this has helped motivate all you students reading the blog to quit procrastinating and get to the bibliotheque. Now get back to work!!

Don't get lost in a sea of plaid and flannel when the cold weather arrives; beat the winter blues in a vibrant tribal print. Maybe you'll even coax the sun out of hiding.

If Dr. Suess was reincarnated as a pair of mittens this what they would look like.
Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but a great hand bag is forever! Especially if that bag is made of buttery soft, emerald green leather.

Cute enough for a holiday party and comfy enough to pass out in after; you can't say the same for silk!
