Edmonton blog roundup: Feb. 23, 2016

Sometimes I come across something in my roundup reading that is just so beautiful, I’m transfixed. So that’s where we’re going to start, and then we’ll get into other things that people have recommended over the past week, before heading into words, building/rebuilding and miscellany.

Nav and Surinder, Zokah
Just one shot among a stunning collection of photos taken by Zokah at Nav and Surinder’s wedding, featured on yegwed. Visit zokah.ca.
  • You have to see the utterly gorgeous wedding of Nav and Surinder, captured by Zokah and featured on Stacey Knopp’s yegwed.
  • Brittney Le Blanc test-drives Bumble, a new dating app.
  • Lillian Tse does a step-by-step recipe review on the making of kouign amanns or kouignettes, and they look so delicious.
  • Marcia Hamm applies her trained palate to a couple of local wine rooms.
  • Phil Wilson finds a pretty clear winner in this week’s brunch odyssey pairing.
  • Megan McKenna has found the perfect notepad for organizing her life.
  • TJ Jans updates the search for a comfortable and effective chest binder, and has come up with a winner.
  • Nicole Rowan has tips for styling a graphic tee.
  • Kira Paran adds her voice to Pink Shirt Day and its campaign against bullying.

Words, words, words

Building and rebuilding

  • Kristina Lynne is getting ready for another house flip, this one coming to her through her blog.
  • Lawrence Herzog looks at Edmontonians’ historical practice of scrounging wood.
  • Make Something Edmonton shares the story of Danielle Soneff’s solar-powered warming hut.
  • Matt Henderson cautions the Oilers against acting as desperate for a defenceman as they are heading to the trade deadline.
  • Sunil Agnihotri thinks the Oilers should strongly consider bringing David Perron back. Also, he kind of just wants the season to be over, but then he goes on a deep dive into what the Oilers should do anyway.
  • “If depressing a fan base was a skill, the Oilers would be Gretzky,” writes Lowetide. Quite.
