The Fable: Silk Shirts and their stories

August 7, 2017

Ashley and Arika gravel pit déjà vu? Well yes, almost two years ago my sister Arika and I did a “sister shoot” at this exact gravel pit in Birds Hill Manitoba. That day marked the beginning of a beautiful friendship with the talented artist and sweet soul, photographer Vanessa Mayberry! We had met through Instagram, and set out to do a creative shoot, and it was our first time meeting up in person! Fast forward two years later. The landscape has changed, and naturally so have we. The gravel pits no longer have the abandoned (albeit quite dangerous) digging structure.

Inn at the Forks

Apart from its prime location in the cultural heart of Winnipeg, the Inn at the Forks sets itself apart from the rest with its incredible guest service, beautiful facilities, and convenient luxuries. My kinda luxury? The best food, a full service spa and relaxation facilities, and comfortable spacious rooms with views over the beautiful Forks. The perfect spot for a staycation as everything you could dream of is at your fingertips! Riverstone Spa and Smith Restaurant are both located inside the hotel and offer top notch spa services and delicious dining experiences! It’s really a perfect trio. And the truth was, as much as I like to adventure, I never really wanted to leave the hotel – which for those cold Winnipeg winters, is a clever convenience. Plush robes, slippers, jacuzzi, room service, wine… I wasn’t going no where!Inn at the Forks Continue Reading…
