Calgary: where good hair happens to good people

If you’re blonde in Vancouver, you know how hard it is to find someone to do decent colour. We don’t want caramels and golds in our hair that always look far too yellow and brassy. If you do go and get your hair done, you usually end up walking out at least $200 poorer.

There are some pretty awesome things in Calgary, like a lover who tells the best jokes (just don’t let him talk to your uncle at a wedding), horses out the ying yang, cheap Kirkland vodka, Charlotte et al, Bentalliano and….salons that know how to do blonde!!

Jerome’s newly opened space on 11 st, two years in the building process, has finally opened. And thank goodness Shannon still works there – Heather’s ¬†favourite colorist of all time!

Now, if I turn my head juuuuust right...I may pick up some TV on this thing.

See? This is what we're talking about, people!


Quarter. I just need a quarter.

Dear Vancouver,

Who is your favourite beggar? My personal favourite would have to be the tall lady with curly-ish hair who always needs a quarter. “Does anyone have a qwa-tah? I just need a qwa-tah.” She sounds like she’s from Jersey, which is not only fascinating, but one wonders…where is she really from?

Who’s your fav?

Kitty Cold!

The Wee House has become divided by provinces! Heather is now in Calgary and her new home is aptly called The Love Shack. However, both of us are still living in wee spaces. So, the blog’s name will not change. We’ve had enough change for the next little while and there’s no reason to get all crazy.

With all the changes going on, poor little Vincey poo got a kitty cold. ¬†His nose was running like a leaky faucet, he had to breath through his mouth, his eyes were running and he took on a quiet disposition. For those that know Vince, that’s an unlikely occurrence! What does a kitty with a cold look like?


Yes, Vince was even MORE cute with a kitty cold.

Vincey, I miss you and your mamma!
