Edmonton in three words: Friendly, Beautiful, Cold
Coffee or Tea? … and the best spot in Edmonton to get your fix? Neither! I’m one of the very few people who doesn't drink coffee or tea. But I do love my Booster Juice smoothies, I visit a location at least 3 times a week.
Best place to shop in Edmonton? Bamboo Ballroom and Lux Beauty Boutique
Finest place in Edmonton to sip a cocktail with friends? Moriarty’s Bistro & Wine Bar (I love their belliini’s)
Hidden Edmonton gem that you never thought you’d share – until now: The Highlevel Bridge Streetcar, in the fall. The view of the river valley that you see while riding it, when the leaves are changing, is breathtaking. Every Edmontonian needs to hop on this train at least once!
Where in Edmonton do you feel most inspired? Watching other actors on stage at a theater, whether it’s the Citadel, Varscona or a dingy little bar with only 30 seats during The Fringe.
You wish Edmonton had _________ ? a larger fashion and film industry. Hopefully that will change…
Your five can’t live withouts? Concealer, coconut oil, magazines, reality television and Mexican food!
