When Alison and Judith, the creators behind Urbanglen, contacted me to provide content for their knitwear I jumped at the opportunity! I met Alison on a cycle tour in Central America and she is exactly what their brand represents - contemporary, fun, and classically elegant. Based in the UK, family, friends and sharing experiences are what’s most important to Alison and Judith. I have the pleasure of having one of their pieces and it is THE SOFTEST sweater I have. I love the classic cut and product quality and I know this will be a lifetime piece!
I am so stoked to partner with Compaslife and talk about their adventure apparel. In researching Compaslife, I discovered their business plan to inspire exploration and enjoing the outdoors matches my passion!
I also love that Compaslife is a small company, started by two friends on a mission to provide positive opportunities and experiences to those interested in adventuring.
Being a smaller business like me means they work hard to provide excellent customer service and they take a hands on approach to creating high quality apparel and accessories. Their products provide clothing for men and women and range from shirts, hats and outerwear to patches and leather goods and their shirts are super soft!
In September 2018 I was asked to join @tourismsask for an adventure weekend in Waskesiu. I left a snow storm in Saskatoon and continued toward northern blue skies. The weather ended up being perfect and epitomized what I love about fall - damp earth and a warm sun, autumn colors and gorgeous sunsets. Our group of creatives bonded around the campfire and managed to catch the northern lights on our first night! Our days were filled with canoeing, zip lining and hiking, our evenings with amazing food and lots of laughs. We started the weekend as strangers but I couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful setting than one of my favourite parks in Saskatchewan to enjoy the outdoors and experience new adventures with new friends!!
