Many of you know that I love contests and contests are even better when you can enjoy prizes with some of your favourite people. Peggy’s Squad Contests are just that! Enjoy a day or evening doing some of my favourite things downtown and invite your squad to come along.
Here’s how the contests work:
Every time you see the image below on my Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, you’ll know that there’s a new Peggy’s Squad contest.
Follow the instructions provided in the post and you will automatically be entered to win an amazing experience including yourself and 3-10 of your friends (number of friends depend on the contest).
Stay tuned for my first ever Peggy’s Squad contest on Monday, April 24th. Hint: It involves amazing food!
Chances are there’s a mom out there who’s responsible for life as you know it. And once a year, we set aside a day to show that amazing lady just how much we appreciate her. This year, Mother’s Day is May 10, and I have a few suggestions about how you could treat the mom in your life!

What else do moms like? All kinds of treats to show you care! Why not check out The Forks Market for some gift ideas? I’ve spotted lots of cute jewellery and giftware at The Forks Trading Company recently, and lots of it is locally created. (I also sniffed all of the candles there – yum!) You could also check out Best of Friends at the Millennium Library or the WAG Gallery Shop has some b-e-a-utiful choices! Does your mama need a little relaxation time? Perhaps a trip (or a gift certificate) to Riverstone Spa or Ten Spa is in order, or how about some class passes to Yoga Public for some serious meditation?.
And you know what you absolutely cannot go wrong with? Flowers. Freshcut Downtown has you covered and your mom will love it!
Give your mom a big hug! And I want to hear how you plan to #FindItDowntown for Mother’s Day! 🙂
