Five on Friday - June 21, 2019

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you've all had a great week! I've had a super busy week - it's always hard to have a long weekend and come back to extra work; but, it was a good busy this week too.

I was so excited to be able to attend a sneak peek of The Alley here in Calgary this week! They are a new bubble tea shop, originally from Taiwan with quite a few locations across Canada with their very first location opening in Calgary! The shop opens on June 22 and 23 and they are giving away 100 free drinks at 3:00 p.m. and are offering 15% off on select drinks.

The Alley is known for their distinctive drinks that are amazing and so unique! The Alley makes all their own tapioca in house as well as their own sugar cane syrup for their drinks. The teas are all carefully selected and each beverage has a story of more than 500 days starting from the harvest of the tea leaves, the processing and aging of the leaves, the infusion of flavours to the selection of ingredients and their ratios. 

I tried so many drinks and I can say I recommend them all! The Royal Jelly 9, Peach Oolong, Deerioca Puff and the Aurora series! I can't wait to come back here and try more! 


Last weekend, I took a long weekend and got to join one of oldest (or maybe I mean longest) friend's for her Bachelorette Party in Osoyoos! It's a beautiful small town in the southern Okanagan so we did some wine touring and I had such a blast! 


I'm so excited that Toy Story 4 just came out! I can't wait to see it! I love the Toy Story series and this is going to be so cute! 


Are you guys loving the new Taylor Swift song "You Need To Calm Down" as much as I am?! I love the empowerment, we all got crowns, build each other up feeling of it! I really love this really peppy vibe from her! 

I hope you all have a great weekend!


  1. The drinks at The Alley sound delicious! And I also love Taylor Swift's new song/video!
