Another week is just about over – woohoo! Does anyone have any exciting plans this weekend? I’m thinking about going to YYC Food Truck’s spring frenzy tomorrow. 15 food trucks will all be in one spot. The hardest part is always trying to decide what food truck to try. I’ve been to a few of the frenzies before and they’ve always been a lot of fun. Calgary Poutine Week also starts today. For those of you who don’t know what poutine is, it’s a French Canadian dish that’s essentially french fries, gravy, and cheese curds. Restaurants all across the city participate, creating a poutine exclusive to this event. Calgary Poutine Week has partnered with Mealshare again this year, to provide a meal to someone in need for each poutine ordered.

And now onto my Friday Favorites for the week!

Maybelline Volum'Express Mascara

Maybelline Volum’Express Mascara // I needed some new mascara this week. Instead of getting the kind I always go for, I decided to try something new. This Maybelline mascara (affiliate link) one is pretty awesome. It goes on without getting clumpy while still giving me the volume that I want.

Breaks between semesters // I’m currently between semesters. I took my finals the first week of April. My (last) semester starts the first week of May. Even though I’m working for the three weeks I’m off of school, it’s still been pretty nice to have a break from school. My winter semester was super busy thanks to scheduling internship hours outside of classes. I’m looking forward to just having classes during spring semester.

White Hot Chocolate

Getting together with friends // Because I’m not in classes and doing homework, I’ve had some extra time to get together with friends. Both Monday and Tuesday after work I got together for coffee with friends that I hadn’t seen in months. Needless to day, it was great to get together and chat. I ended up getting a white hot chocolate (pictured above) that I haven’t had in forever. It tasted just as good as I remembered.

Chickpea and Artichoke Salad

Loblaws City Market // Yesterday I checked out Calgary’s first Loblaws City Market. It reminds me of a budget Sunterra, with a huge section of the grocery store devoted to fresh and prepared foods, like sushi (yum!), salads, sandwiches, and juices. I tried out some sushi and a chickpea and artichoke salad. Both were delicious. Since it’s only a 15 minute drive away, I can see myself checking it out more often.
