Meet Workshop Studios

Visiting artist studios is a long-time passion of mine. Spending an afternoon perusing spaces where people spend time to solely pursue their passion to create is, in a word, awe-inspiring. Perhaps it is thanks to my five-year stint as a fine arts student, but I’ll never forget or get tired of the magic of seeing in-progress works, shelves full...

Bullet Journaling

You’ve probably seen them on Instagram or Pinterest - those charming little journals with pretty ‘spreads’, calendars, and lists. Now, if you’re anything like me, your desk might be a flurry of sticky notes and day planners and to do lists, and your Notes app is a mess of movie recommendations, half-formed ideas, and grocery lists....

The Power of Transformation with Tiffany Pratt

There’s something about the onset of autumn that brings a welcome feeling of readiness for change, renewal, and transformation. From our routine to our wardrobe and right into our home décor, we’re feeling ready for a change. Just in time, we turned to the one and only Tiffany Pratt for guidance. The vibrant, colourful and inspiring interior...

How to Write a Resume

For many of us, just the thought of resume writing is enough to bring on a headache. The sheer volume of available resources – and their contradictory nature – makes seeking guidance both overwhelming and confusing. Crafting your resume shouldn’t be a chore. Truthfully, it’s a perfect opportunity for self-reflection; a time to...

Paleo Chocolates Recipe

This is a post about new beginnings, food intolerance, and flower petals on chocolate.  Ah, gourmet chocolates... that divine little gift we give our lovers, our dinner hosts, even ourselves once in a while (for self-care purposes, of course). We would never turn up our noses at a Hershey's bar or a bowl of chocolate ice cream --...

DIY Room Sprays

My grandmother’s home, filled with plants, smells ferny and jungle-wet and alive. My in-laws’ home smells like laundry and freezer ice. A friend’s apartment always smells like the cedarwood incense she burns. All these scents are unique, distinctive, and deeply connected to who these people are to me. I have zero standout memories of places...

PARKSHOW is an annual fashion show run by Calgary-based non-profit organization, PARK (Promoting Artists...

Issue 6 Launch Party

We couldn’t think of a more perfect way to celebrate the launch of Dote Magazine’s first ever Home and Outdoor Living Issue last week than on the rooftop of Junction 9, accompanied by friends and enjoying the gorgeous weather. The party kicked off with great sounds and photo booth entertainment from the Local DJ and Local Booth crew, while...

DIY Vintage Mirrors

In my wildest dreams, I live in a gorgeous century-old house, with timeworn wooden floors, antique oil portraits on the wall, and ghosts in the attic. But until my bank account catches up to my dreams of domestic bliss, I'm happy to settle for a few pretty vintage details. I love the stories vintage pieces tell, the sometimes mysterious...

A Meaningful Life

When I was a child, I remember being happy. I was raised by great parents (losing one of them far too early, but still…), always well cared for, encouraged, and provided for. Yet somehow I got to adulthood not knowing some basic things about life, which I really wish I didn’t have to figure out so late. It isn’t the things you might...
