’m grateful for the mild temperatures we’ve been gifted with throughout this winter season. With spring around the corner, I’m excited to see gardening and camping editorials once again in the magazine. I’m a small-scale gardener. My husband built me the most amazing raised beds that I’ve had the pleasure of using for the last three years. I didn’t realize how much I loved gardening until I started using raised garden beds. I love starting seeds and getting my hands in the fresh earth when it’s time to plant. Our feature—Good Thymes in the Garden—gives you advice on the time to start certain plants, new plants to try and other bits of great gardening information.

Updating Your Home


STYLE By Kali Holdstock




Here’s your guide for finding inspiration for your next home makeover project and help you discover which new home exterior trend is for you. Here are my top picks for 2020 that will keep your home stylish and sturdy for years to come.

Windows, Doors & Garages nod to the trend of embracing the outdoors, homeowners will go even bigger with windows in 2020. Floor-to-ceiling glass increases the amount of natural light in your home and provides a sense of indoor-outdoor living—even when the weather turns too cold to be outside. Garage doors are front and centre on the home’s exterior. That said, they should be beautiful! We’re seeing more decorative garage doors that make a statement including, reclaimed wood garage doors and black garage doors with unique patterns and textures. Finally, don’t skimp on the garage hardware. Sometimes, a simple lift handle or side bracket is all it takes to update that door.

the winter and 50 per cent of a home’s cooling energy in the summer. With energy efficient windows, you can cut out this waste and start living a more climateconscious life. Also, make sure you have that storm door with ample screen space in it for your spring through fall months.

Metal Roofs Metal roof materials, like aluminum and steel, contain high percentages of recycled content. Many aluminum products are 100 per cent recyclable. Therefore, a metal roof is a green choice! They are also a durable material known

to last far longer than a traditional shingle roof.

Solar Panels There is a global shift headed towards solar power. Solar panels on the roof and landscape lighting are going to be seen more this year. The advantages outweigh the disadvantages. Solar energy is a completely renewable resource. Solar cells make no noise. Very little maintenance is required to keep solar cells running. Solar panels and solar lighting can be a costly purchase upfront, but in the long run you will be saving yourself money.

Not all home exterior trends have to be purely aesthetic. One of the most important trends we see moving into the new year is a steadfast emphasis on environmental and energy consciousness. It’s important that we work to make the earth a better place to live. Most companies offer energy-efficient windows that will help reduce your energy footprint. And, it means you can enjoy lower heating and cooling bills all year. Poorly performing windows can lose up to 40 per cent of heating energy in






Right now, one of the biggest exterior trends is enhancing outdoor spaces by making them feel just as luxurious and lived-in as indoor spaces. Take a walk around your home on your property and find your areas you want to improve. Do you want a deck built or a patio space made for more entertaining? Is your lawn in desperate need of an irrigation system? The idea of having a garden doesn’t have to be so scary, get some deck boxes built and start small. Want some more privacy in town and would give anything to have a fence built? Just do it. Even something as simple as heading to your local greenhouse and getting some new plants can liven up your outdoor area.

Most people notice that they are busting at the seams for more space indoors during those cold winter months when you spend far too much time indoors. Springtime is a great time to start on that outdoor project. Big or small, adding some extra square footage gives everyone in your home more space and comfort inside.



Siding Having a home that is beautiful is all about knowing the right way to stand out. The key is striking a balance between being bold and staying sophisticated.


No siding type exemplifies this balance better than vinyl shake accents. At the same time, shake siding has a subtle texture that doesn’t overwhelm typical suburban homes. This is especially true when it’s utilized in accent sections on homes that already have modern siding, like seamless siding. It can give your home an extra pop to increase your curb appeal. Gray-green home exteriors, or homes with green accents on the porch, front door and underside of stairways will be seen more often in 2020. Homeowners are favoring darker, more urbane shades in deep blues and shadowy greens for their outdoor spaces.

Not ready for outside yet? Not ready to commit to outdoor renos just yet because you haven’t completed the indoors? Here are some quick tips to improve your indoors on a small or large budget. Change that backsplash, change your couch, your pillows, your cabinetry, your lighting fixtures, your flooring, your leaking toilet—the options are endless. Update your wall colour, buy a new rug or install a fireplace…the sky’s the limit with

how much you can accomplish inside and outside of your home. Overall, home exterior trends coming our way in 2020 are leaning to simplicity in design. Therefore, focus more on environmentally friendly, sustainable materials and a move towards outdoor living. Consumers are increasingly discerning about where they spend their money, and home exterior remodeling is no exception. While homeowners do value visual beauty, they also want to ensure that what they buy is built to last.

There are many businesses in Weyburn and area that are committed to helping you create your home renovation dreams, whether they are interior or exterior. Check with your local businesses and let their experts help you make renos an easier process.

s we gear up for a new decade, it’s time to look at what to expect in home décor and trends. 2020 is all about personality and character. Depending on your mood and preferences, you can find your own solutions among these top trends.

DIY We all know DIY projects have taken over these last few years and there’s no end in sight. Look around at your older pieces that need a refreshed stain or paint. Now that spring is coming, this is the perfect time to start planning your DIY project. Shopping second-hand is not only eco-conscious, but it can allow you to customize and personalize your home more than most ‘big box shop’ finds. Look for well-made pieces in good condition or items with great bones that can be restored to their original beauty. With more focus on the environment, designers are starting to take an active part in reducing waste and home decor is shifting to reusable and sustainable materials.

Wallpaper Mural wallpaper has started to creep in, expect it to get even more popular this year. Bold wallpaper not only creates endless visual interest, but it also can replace expensive artwork. It can act as a focal point in a room, especially when used as an accent wall.

Natural Elements This year spend some time making your home a peaceful retreat from the hustle



and bustle. If you can, allow natural light to fill your home. Remove those bulky drapes and let the light shine in. Or better yet, install sky lights where you can. More homeowners are choosing natural materials like limestone, onyx, and sandstone to create not only a more environmentally conscious space, but a more unique look during new builds and renovations.

Bar Cabinets & Dining Rooms

Minimalist Style Minimalist style is coming in strong this year. Get rid of all that excess décor this spring. Keep what you love and get rid of the bulk. This style demands you to pare down to the essentials so that you’re left with fewer items for maximum impact. Need some help updating your home for 2020? Contact me today with all your questions.

Though more difficult to move from room to room, a bar cabinet creates a deliberate gathering space in a dining room or a corner of the living room to serve drinks and mingle with friends and family. A true formal dining space gives you a space to entertain that feels removed from the other areas in the home and helps encourage family mealtime.

Baskets as Decor Check flea markets or vintage shops to find shallow baskets that create a lovely, worldly vibe when hung on the wall. Look for colorful patterns and handwoven pieces that can double as artwork. Bonus points: when you get tired of the look on your walls, you can reuse them as storage around the house.

Navy Navy itself isn’t new, but it’s starting to replace neutrals like gray and beige in spaces. Navy is the perfect, “go dark but not black” shade. Because of its eclectic subtlety, navy blue can truly blend into personal style for anyone.

Not only can your garden grow food for you, it can also feed nature too.

Your garden needs pollinators to thrive. Be sure to plant pollinatorfriendly plants like:

Milkweed isn’t a weed at all. It’s the sole source of food for monarch butterflies. These pretty plants look gorgeous and grow about two to five feet, depending on variety. Best of all, they are a perennial—coming back year after year to look great and attract beautiful butterflies. You can find milkweed at the plant nursery, and pop it in a sunny spot. The more plants, the more butterflies you attract.

Anise Hyssop, Bachelor’s Buttons, Bergamot, Borage, Calendula, Chives, Cosmos, Echinacea, Foxglove, Marigold and Zinnia.

Things to Try There are so many plants to experiment with in your garden. Heirloom tomatoes – a trend with no sign of slowing, heirloom tomatoes are delicious, full of flavor and come in a rainbow of colours and sizes. Varieties to try: Brandywine, Costoluto Genovese, Lemon Boy, Mortgage Lifter, Stupice, Yellow Pear.

Cucamelon – these tiny ‘mouse melons’ look like watermelons and taste like cucumbers. Kids love them!

Melons – even with our short growing season, you can grow watermelon and cantaloupe. Varieties like Gnadenfeld, Minnesota Midget and Cream of Saskatchewan will grow well in the sunniest part of your garden.








Someday is Today START THE BUSINESS YOU WANT By Brook Thalgott


At some point, most of us have thought about owning our own business. Whether it’s the bar you dreamed up in university, taking Grandma’s best recipe to the masses or elevating a hobby to a hustle, there’s an entrepreneur in a lot of us. So, where do you even begin once you’ve got an inkling for a venture?



The Big Idea First, examine your idea closely. How will you make money? What resources do you need? What knowledge or skills do you have that will drive the business? These questions will lead you to figuring out your business model. A business model is how a business operates—including what you will do (sell products or offer services), your revenue sources, your customers, and how you will finance its start. Be sure to put it all on paper to make your idea concrete.

on something that already exists or is introducing something totally new to the market, you’ll need to see what’s out there already. The internet makes research easier than ever. And, your local library will also have great resources with books on everything from marketing to management and more.

plan is the roadmap to how you will get where you want to go. In your plan, you will finalize your idea and your business model, define your customers, develop your marketing and sales strategy, and project your revenue and expenses. Don’t rush this stage—you want to make sure your plan is solid.

Identify all your competitors and see where you compare. Identify your customers and drill down how many of them there are, where they are, and how to reach them. Think about the costs to start up, what you will charge to make money, and how much revenue you need to be a viable enterprise.

There are many business plan templates available for you—the Business Development Bank of Canada and Square One: Saskatchewan's Centre for Entrepreneurship are both excellent resources for developing business plans and getting advice on your idea. Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan (WESK) helps women develop business ideas, and Futurpreneur Canada works with young people with entrepreneurial aspirations.

Do Your Homework

The Right Plan

Once you have a draft of your business model, it’s now time to do some research. Whether your business is improving

Your idea and your research will form your business plan. Business plans are essential to your success. A business




Plus, if you require financing to start your company, lenders will want to see

your business plan to determine if your idea is realistic and has a good chance of success.

Taking the Plunge Once your business plan is solid, it’s now time to formalize your business. This is the stage where you will want to chat with an accountant and a banker, even if you’re going to be a small operation. It can be as simple as registering yourself as a sole proprietorship and getting a business license for a microbusiness from your home, or it can be more complex with corporations and partnerships. You’ll also need a business bank account and tax number registration. An accountant will help you set up your books to track your revenue and your taxes, and a banker can advise on what banking services you’ll need. If your venture involves incorporating or you have a business partner, you’ll also want to chat with a lawyer to incorporate and to formalize a partnership agreement.

Getting Out There Once you’ve done your planning and made the decision to move forward, now it’s time to get out in the world and do business. This is where you implement

your business plan—in particular, your marketing strategy to your customers and start making sales. Whether your business is you making artisanal goods at your kitchen table, offering consulting services from a home office, starting a restaurant or retail shop, or something even bigger—people need to know

you exist. This is often where fledgling businesses fall down. Marketing you and your venture is necessary. Businesses don’t make it with just a Facebook page and some hope. Be where your customers are with a brand and message that matters to them.

Prepare to Work HARD Being your own boss can be a rewarding experience in ways more than just money, and the idea of managing your own time and writing your own paycheque is a dream come true. However, you’re going to work harder than you ever have before. Successful entrepreneurs are dedicated, resourceful, creative and motivated. Startup mode is not a nine-to-five, five day a week gig. It’s a hustle every day. Know that upfront and be prepared for the long haul. As they say, Rome wasn’t built in a day—and neither will your business. With thorough planning, good advice, realistic goals and lots of determination, your venture can become reality.

Getting it Done

By Brook Thalgott


t wasn’t that long ago when many of us made some promises about how we were going to make some changes in the coming year. You know what I am talking about—the New Year’s resolution. We all do it at some point, thinking “this year, I am going to do it!” and it could mean anything from eating better to exercising, to getting organized or getting back into a hobby. Whatever it is, you can set a goal and follow through. It’s easy to give up. However, let’s make a resolution not to give up on our resolutions this year!




A dream written down becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action becomes reality.

Setting Yourself Up for Success 1. Write it down and be specific. Putting your goal on paper will help make it concrete and help strengthen your intentions. Make a plan to achieve your goal and keep track in a place outside of your own brain. 2. Make your goal a priority. Set aside time to work on your goal. For example, if getting more exercise is your resolution, plan the time to do it. Be reasonable. You can’t run a marathon in day one. However, you could set aside 20 minutes three days a week to go for a walk at lunch or after supper.

The harder you work for something, the greater you’ll feel when you achieve it.

3. Get some quick wins. Give yourself a way to celebrate milestones on the route to your goal. If your goal is organizing your home, break up the work into smaller, manageable chunks and reward yourself when you complete your tasks. When you’re done tackling a closet, pat yourself on the back with 30 minutes of your favourite show, a mug of hot chocolate or something else you enjoy. 4. Don’t quit after one bad day. We’re all going to slip up along the way—it’s just human nature. The important thing is to not let that derail your goal. If your plan is to eat better but a get-together with friends led to some overindulgence, that’s okay. The important thing is to forgive yourself and get back to it the next day. There’s no one but you judging your journey, so be kind. 5. Check in with yourself. There’s nothing more motivating than seeing how far you have come. Look at your accomplishments along the way and celebrate it. 6. Chart your progress. When you set your goal, think about how you can monitor how you’re doing. Track your quick wins and see how they are leading you to the overall goal. Instead of a to-do list, make yourself an I did it list! Adjust as you go and stay focused on the end.

Should. Would. Could. DID.

7. Believe in yourself. This might be the hardest part of all. We’re often our worst critics and can self-sabotage our efforts. Take it day by day and remember results don’t happen overnight. Don’t give in. Instead, commit to yourself because you are worth it.

You Can Do It Believing you can is the start. Grab your determination and spend 2020 aiming at whatever it is you promised yourself on January 1. Go make yourself proud.

Invested in Your Success Harbourfront Wealth Management means Unbiased Advice and Unrestricted Choice. By Brook Thalgott Photos Images by Jon Gillies


or nearly 20 years, Chris Michel and Michael Hoffman have been helping Weyburn and area residents realize their financial goals. They got their start in the early 2000s when their former high school football coach, Warren Schweitzer, approached them about joining his Investors Group practice. “I had moved back to Weyburn after finishing my



Bachelor of Commerce degree at the University of Saskatchewan and had just earned my Chartered Accountant designation when Warren came to me,” says Chris. “Warren was looking for someone to take over his business as he prepared to retire.” Mike was working locally in the banking industry and was also interested in what Warren was offering. The three joined forces,


and Warren mentored Chris and Mike to take over his firm. By 2002, Chris and Mike were partners at the Weyburn Investors Group location. Chris and Mike are both Certified Financial Planners and Registered Retirement Consultants and spent the next 17 years growing their clients’ wealth and providing comprehensive financial advice. In 2017, they expanded their team to include a new associate, Adrian Miller—another Weyburn local. Adrian, also a CFP professional, was brought in to help make the team more efficient. “His experience with insurance made him a good fit for our holistic approach to financial planning,” says Chris.

“We look at your whole financial picture and build a plan that will work for your life. Every client is unique.” - Michael Hoffman

Personal Relationships Over the years, they’ve developed solid, long standing personal relationships with their clients. “Our personal relationships with our clients are what I believe truly sets us apart from the regular bank or large institution client interaction. For example, we have clients that we started education savings plans for 18-20 years ago when their children were babies. Now, these kids are attending university or college and we were a part of their goal of successfully saving enough money to pay for that education. It’s pretty rewarding to be a part of that from start to finish.” says Chris. “We have also been involved in some tough emotional and financial times with our clients—comforting and guiding them through the loss of a loved one or through serious illness. That’s really the essence of why we do what we do. The numbers and investments are going to do what they’re going to do, but that personal relationship is where the value is. That’s what is important to us.” says Mike. Change is Good In late 2015, they became a fully licensed brokerage with the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization (IIROC) and by 2019, they knew they needed a change. “We were looking for a way to refresh our

“We know the needs of the people who call Weyburn home because we do, too.” - Chris Michel business to offer more quality investment solutions to our clients,” says Chris. The opportunity for change came with Harbourfront Wealth Management Inc., an independent investment and financial advisory firm based in Vancouver. “Harbourfront provided us with the change we needed,” says Mike. “The industry has changed a lot since we started, and we needed to provide our clients with more and better investment choices combined with lower costs and improved performance.” In October 2019, Chris and Mike launched the first Harbourfront Wealth Management Inc. location in Saskatchewan. The transition has been fantastic, and they couldn’t be happier with the overwhelming, positive client response. “What truly makes Harbourfront stand out is its independence and its dynamic, progressive business philosophy,” says Chris. “Instead of offering investments from only one company, we now have access to a truly open architecture of investment products from across the marketplace. We can recommend solutions that truly make sense for our clients needs for the long term.” Mike agrees. “We put the needs of our clients first—always.” Always Thinking Ahead The Harbourfront Wealth Management approach is one that can work for anyone at any point in their financial lives. Whether you’re just starting out with your first RRSP, or approaching retirement, Chris and Mike can help you make the most of your money. “People often think financial planning is only for people with

Chris is married to his wife Lindsee of 23 years, is a father of two very busy teenagers, and is a dedicated long-time minor sports coach. Mike is married to his wife, Rini of 17 years and a dad of two sons—with a love of coaching and a commitment to his community. Adrian is married to Tonya, and the couple is expecting their first child in the next few weeks. Adrian is also active in coaching youth sports, focusing on volleyball.

or Drs. Carol and Jeremy Ross— both veterinarians—2020 is a remarkable year. It’s been fifteen years since they brought together two veterinary practices into one, forming what the southeast knows as Prairie Animal Health Centre. The journey began with a love of animals, and a family history filled with veterinarians for both Carol and Jeremy. Jeremy grew up in southeast Saskatchewan and returned to his home to practice when he finished his studies. In 2002, he joined Hoium Veterinary Services with Dr. Gary Hoium, and Carol joined the practice a year later. It wasn’t long before Jeremy and Carol saw the need for another veterinary clinic



in the Estevan area, and they formed Ross Veterinary Services in 2003. Two years later, the doctors purchased Dr. Hoium’s practice and became Prairie Animal Health Centre (PAHC). “Gary is still a part of PAHC, and we’re forever grateful for his guidance over the years,” says Carol. Since 2005, the PAHC team may have grown, but their commitment to their patients remains the same. “Being a mixed animal veterinarian has many rewards and challenges,” says Carol. “The greatest gift we receive is seeing a patient’s life being directly impacted by the care given by our team.” PAHC has been so blessed to be part of the community, with so many patients and


clients making a lasting impact on their lives and careers. “Over the years we have had many amazing colleagues work with us, some having to move on and a handful of treasured employees who have been with us from the beginning,” says Jeremy. “Our team is made up of the most compassionate, hardworking people. We look forward to our future and are proud of our past.” Today, Prairie Animal Health Centre is a full-service animal hospital that handles emergency and non-urgent medical, surgical and dental issues for pets and large animals. No matter what care your animal needs, you can be assured they are in caring, compassionate, competent hands. The Prairie Animal Health Centre

clinics also provide care beyond your average rural practice. Your pet can have dental care, extensive orthopedic surgery, and even acupuncture and herbal medicine. No matter the care you seek from Prairie Animal Health Centre, it comes with their four core values: compassion, teamwork, professionalism and excellence. The past fifteen years have shown their dedication to their work and their patients, and they are looking forward to many more years of doing the same—quality veterinary care for every animal and their owners.

Locavores are Changing Food for Everyone By Brook Thalgott





e’re hearing it all the time—eat locally-grown, in-season foods. Grocery stores are clamoring to stock their shelves with local goodness, and more of us are looking around to support growers at farmers markets around the province. Lucky for us, we live in one of the best places in the world to become a locavore. Saskatchewan is one of the world’s most prolific agricultural producers, giving the world everything from wheat to lentils, chickpeas to oats, quinoa to wild rice—not to mention beef, berries, jams, oils and so much more.

Here’s just some of what you can find out your back door. Bandits Distilling – Weyburn Micro-distilleries are popping up all over and Weyburn is no exception. Bandits Distilling creates varieties of moonshine, vodka and gin with locally grown grain, handcrafted and bottled right here.




Box H Farm – Gladmar Box H Farm is a family-run operation raising grass-fed beef, pastured pork and honey that is sold directly to customers through retailers, farmers markets and pick-up locations.

Daybreak Organic Mill – North Portal Daybreak Mill has been around for decades, providing whole and milled grains to customers across Canada through retailers and online. Always 100 per cent certified organic, Daybreak Mill offers everything from all-purpose flour to granola to pancake mix—all locally grown.

Looking to Expand Your Agriculture Venture? If you’re a producer looking to expand your operation to capitalize on the growing locavore trend, the time has never been better. Jenn Sharp, a Saskatchewanbased writer and consultant is helping producers do just that. Her Happy Farmer: How to Make $ Farming the Way You Want program can help Saskatchewan’s farmers access this growing, lucrative market and bring the bounty to hungry consumers looking to reshape their food choices. Find Jenn on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter at @flatoutfoodsk.

Where to Buy Local Keller's Bee Happy Honey – Francis Owned and operated near Francis, the Keller family produces honey and honey-related products sold directly to customers, through local markets and via retailers in Saskatchewan.

Buying locally grown food has never been easier. Major food retailers like Co-op carry more and more local foods all the time. These other Weyburn businesses carry a variety of local food products: Old Fashion Foods, Main Street The General Store, Main Street Harvest Pie Company at the WorKin Shop and the Open Air Market.

Three Farmers – Midale Likely one of the most well-known Saskatchewan food producers, sisters Elysia and Natasha Vandenhurk wowed Dragon’s Den with their Saskatchewan-grown Camelina Oil, Pea Pops and Roasted Chickpea Snacks that are now found in major retailers across the country and online.



Finally, you can always find local at your favourite farmers market. Markets big and small are found just about everywhere and are always chock full of local goodness.







n animal health, our knowledge of how to vaccinate animals and herds to achieve maximum immune response and therefore protection against disease is constantly evolving. Timing, delivery methods, animal factors, and vaccine components and formulation are all important considerations depending on the disease being targeted. Traditionally, our delivery method for vaccines has been via injection. Injectable vaccines stimulate a whole body immune response, resulting in antibody production in the blood to fight disease. Injectable vaccines provide amazing protection for some diseases, including rabies in all species and blackleg (Clostridial disease) in cattle. Alternately, vaccines can be delivered locally to produce a local immune response. In this case the antibodies protect at the site of infection — such as in the respiratory tract or in the gut. Examples of vaccines given this way are the kennel cough vaccine for dogs, the flu vaccine for horses, and most recently the pneumonia vaccine for cattle. Every species has their weakness, and for cattle it’s their lungs. While it may be no secret to most that the bovine is not an athlete (disregarding some LonghornCorrientes, known to my neighbors as athletes of high jump, distance running and the limbo), few understand the science of why. Cattle are designed and selected for peaceful grazing, not athleticism. Their lungs are relatively small (compared to the horse), their

clearance defenses are weak (compared to the dog), and they are constantly compressed by their highly-evolved and specialized stomach (a superpower in one sense, and a lead balloon in another). Add to these anatomical weaknesses the well-adapted and potent bugs they have to fight: viruses like infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR), bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV), parainfluenza (PI3), and bacteria like Mannheimia hemolytica and Histophilus somnus. Not only hard to spell and pronounce but each comes with virulence factors to capitalize on the bovine weakness.

the underlying viral “spark” that can set off the wildfire of pneumonia caused by the bacterial pathogens. Pretty cool, if you ask me! For help with designing your preventative herd health plan, contact our knowledgeable veterinarians at Prairie Animal Health Centre in Estevan, Weyburn or Carnduff.

Another issue to dance around is maternal immunity. Passed from the cow to the calf in the colostrum, it gives the calf a head start against the pathogens in their environment. It also, unfortunately, initially interferes with that calf’s ability to respond to an injectable vaccine. Enter the new intranasal vaccines. As a practicing veterinarian and passionate supporter of the cattle industry, I am excited by the research I’ve seen on INFORCE, specifically. Data shows the benefit to long-term health outcomes such as feedlot performance, milk production and longevity in the herd, all associated with a reduction in respiratory disease in calves. The intranasal vaccine is flexible enough to deliver at birth (in a herd with pneumonia in really young calves) without worrying about maternal antibody interference, to using on arrival at the feedlot for high-risk green calves (without worry about a “hot” vaccine reaction). Also, by targeting IBR, we get

Save & Splurge Wardrobe Ideas for Spring 2020 By Kiteen’s Closet Photos Stellar Social Co.




I think it's a good practice to have a mix of ‘save & splurge’ pieces within your wardrobe. I think most people would agree having a mix of high- and low-priced items in your closet is beneficial, but I don't think we agree on every item we should be saving or splurging on. That's because we all have different lifestyles, personal preferences and spending habits. If my list looks a little different than yours, don't sweat it!


Keeping up with what’s trendy in accessories is more important to me than having authentic gold rings, necklaces and earrings.



When to Splurge jeans | I wish I would have found this out for myself way sooner! The right pair of denim jeans can make all the difference. Your favorite pair of jeans should be comfortable, flattering, durable and made from quality denim. They should last you five or more years, so in my opinion they are worth investing in.

outerwear | This is something that you may not consider a ‘splurge’ item, but when you live in Saskatchewan and it gets down to –40°C in Jan/Feb—you get yourself a good, warm winter jacket. I also think an all-season jacket (denim, a trench, whatever you'll get the most wear from) is worth splurging on.

handbags | I don't believe every purse you own needs to be a high-end brand. However, I believe the one or two that you carry around most often should be. Why? Because a good handbag will last you years whereas one that you buy from a big-box store might only last you a few months if you are using it everyday.

everyday shoes | Again, I'm not saying all the shoes you own should drain your bank account. I would say most of the shoes I own are in the ‘save’ category. However, ‘splurge’ shoes that are made from high quality materials will be able to withstand our unpredictable weather of snow and rain a lot longer than synthetics.

When to Save tops | This is the category I save on the most! In my personal experience, I have not noticed a huge quality difference in tops that are $25 compared to those that are $100 or more. I also consider tops one of my ‘save’ items because I am constantly updating my wardrobe.




If you don't update your wardrobe as often as I do, you might feel tops are more of a splurge item for you. But I can't afford multiple $100 tops (heck, I have trouble with tops that are even $50) if I'm rotating them every six months or so!

accessories | This is another big ‘save’ category for me because I am constantly updating my accessories based on the latest trends and styles. Keeping up with what's trendy in accessories is more important to me than having authentic gold rings, necklaces and earrings.

casual shoes | Look at me breaking the rules by putting a category on both lists! It’s the truth. I consider shoes to be both a ‘splurge’ AND a ‘save’ item. I choose to save on trendy or seasonal shoes I know I probably won't be wearing for longer than a couple years. I'd love to hear how your list differs from mine! Visit my blog—— where I share some of the items I own as examples in each category.

eyburn Concert Series is excited to finally have Tenille Arts on our concert stage. Born and raised right here in Weyburn, Tenille’s dream of performing took root at the tender age of eight. A neighbour overheard her singing a Shania Twain song and encouraged her mom to help her pursue music. By 2009, Tenille was posting videos of her own versions of popular country songs, one of those being Taylor Swift’s “Fifteen.” That particular video captured the attention of a talent manager from Nashville. Arts briefly moved to Nashville to pursue this opportunity, but soon returned home to finish high school. In 2015, wanting to advance her song writing skills, Tenille moved to Nashville. She signed a publishing contract and released “Breathe”, a charity single in support of Cystic Fibrosis research.



Arts released her full-length album “Rebel Child” in October 2017, having written 10 of the album’s 11 songs. Entertainment site, named her one of their 2018 Artists to Watch. Tenille’s haunting mysterious song “Cold Feet” and her video helped grow her fan base. The song also received much Billboard Country acclaim. Her national television debut came on January 29, 2018, singing “Moment of Weakness” on the hit ABC show The Bachelor. This was key to accelerating her country music career. Six weeks later, Tenille signed a recording deal with Reviver Records and has not had a minute to look back since. Her accolades to date are numerous—it’s all happening for our Weyburn girl and we wish her nothing but the absolute best! Tenille will be performing live at the Cugnet Centre on Wednesday, April 8, 2019 at 7:30 p.m.

American Woman Celebrating the Music of

The Guess Who


eyburn Concert Series is stoked to be closing our current season with a great tribute: American Woman – Celebrating the Music of “The Guess Who.” The Guess Who were the most successful Canadian rock group of the late 1960s and early 1970s, and Canada’s first rock superstars. The song writing team of Randy Bachman and lead singer-keyboardist Burton Cummings wrote many rock classics. One of those, “American Woman,” was the first song by a Canadian band to ever hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The Guess Who were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of fame in 1987. As Canada’s ‘Walk of Fame’ noted upon the band’s 2001 induction, The Guess Who “were the guys who made it okay to be

Canadian, who proved that you didn’t have to leave our shores to score big. And they’ve influenced just about every Canadian performer who has followed since.” Experience the hit songs, the sounds, and the stories behind the music that made The Guess Who superstars. You will celebrate the rock classics performed by Colin Wiebe, lead singer with Randy Bachman for 17 years, and the Legends All Star Band. This group shares authentic renditions of The Guess Who songs that have become the soundtrack to our lives.

Woodlawn Regional Park is close by, with camping facilities for everything from tents

to trailers. Fish or paddle on the Souris River, hike on the trails, enjoy the beach at Boundary Dam, or see a show at the Souris Valley Theatre. Book your site at While you’re there, you can hit the links at the beautiful TS&M Woodlawn Golf Club. After your golf game, stop in for drinks and dinner at the Clubhouse. Anglers should head straight to Boundary Dam Reservoir for the only largemouth bass fishing in the province. Because of the power plant close by, the warm water allows the largemouth bass to flourish, and summer is the best time to go bass fishing.

THE COLOUR OF THE YEAR Say Hello to Pantone 19-4052 Classic Blue By Brook Thalgott

Did you know that Pantone chooses a colour of the year, every year? They do, and this year it’s PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue. It’s a gorgeous shade of blue, meant for “instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”




“ This year, you’re going to find Classic Blue incorporated into the design of every issue of REFINED. You’ll also spot it in other places, like home décor and fashion, because Pantone Color Institute helps brands with the top seasonal runway colors and forecasts color trends using the “power, psychology, and emotion of color.” Have you ever considered the psychology of colour, and how we relate to the colours we see every day? Let’s have a quick look at the emotions associated with colour.

We are living in a time that requires trust and faith. It is this kind of constancy and confidence that is expressed by PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, a solid and dependable blue hue we can always rely on. Imbued with a deep resonance, Classic Blue provides an anchoring foundation. A boundless blue evocative of the vast and infinite evening sky, Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking; challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective and open the flow of communication.” - Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.






Loving, romantic, exciting – it’s the colour of Valentine’s Day and Christmas, and the colour for many sports teams and major brands such as Coca-Cola, Levi’s and Netflix.

Sophisticated, exotic, royal – it’s grapes, lilacs, and Cadbury, Hallmark and FedEx.


Orange Adventurous, enthusiastic, energetic – think sunsets, soda pop and brands like Harley-Davidson, MasterCard and Shell.


Yellow Cheerful, optimistic, happy – it’s about sunshine, flowers and Best Buy, McDonald’s and Ferrari.

Powerful, intelligent, strong – it’s licorice, tuxedos, and charcoal…and Adidas, Chanel and Nike.



Calm, cool, harmonious – how about lush trees, fresh salads and Starbucks, Heinken and John Deere.

Pure, innocent, clean – clouds, cotton, weddings – and every brand has a white version of their logo!

Blue Serene, wise, loyal – the colour of lakes, flax fields in June and VISA, GM and Facebook.



Reliable, stable, secure – think of chocolate, coffee and bears, plus Hershey, UPS and Louis Vuitton.


Have a look around you—colour surrounds us every day. Colour evokes emotions of all kinds, and it’s a powerful tool for the brands you love to communicate without saying a word. This year see how many times you can spot Classic Blue in the world and in our magazine. We hope you’ll enjoy Classic Blue as much as we do.

Let the Evening


2020 is in full swing, and you know what’s also in? Gin. The 70s staple is back in a big way. Gin is enjoying a resurgence for a few reasons. First, it’s incredibly versatile in cocktails—and cocktails are popular these days. Second, microdistilleries are mixing things up with new flavours, ingredients and colours, and gin is a distillery staple. Finally, gin is also tied to our growing interest in plant-based foods. People are eating and drinking a more plant-based diet, and gin is made from the humble juniper. Turn back the clock at your next party or just because on a NetFlix night with these great recipes.

Did you know you can buy locally-made gin from the good folks at Bandits Distillery? It’s true! Locally owned Bandits Distillery got its start in 2013, proudly built on more than 100 years of farming life in Saskatchewan. They did their homework, researching moonshine, vodka, whiskey and gin from the world over. They use their own high quality, homegrown grains plus other locally sourced ingredients in their fine products. Today, they make Bandits Moonshine, Northern Lights Vodka and Red Coat Gin right here in Weyburn, and their products are sold at retailers throughout the province.

Wake Up Beauty, It’s Time to Beast

With New Year’s gone and spring around the corner, it’s time to buckle down on those fitness goals. You’ve crushed a Christmas turkey dinner, a New Year’s Eve extravaganza and who-knows-what on SuperBowl Sunday, and now that winter weight is staring at you in the mirror. Fear not! You can get on the right track to a fit and healthy lifestyle. There are always trends to muddle through when picking the fitness program that will best suit you. Whether you’re a newbie looking to get out there for the first time or a seasoned pro searching for a new challenge, there’s something for everyone looking to get in shape.

Fitness Trends You Can Use By Brook Thalgott

Wear it Have a Fitbit? You’re not alone. Worldwide sales of wearable devices were over $33 billion USD in 2019 and projected to climb higher. Heart-rate monitoring, step counting and GPS are just some of the features wearables showcase. A wearable can monitor your progress and help you design a program that meets your own specific needs.

Apps, Apps, Apps Even if you’re not into wearing fitness technology, you’re probably going to want to get an app if you don’t have one already. There’s a ton of apps—free and paid—for iPhone and Android, designed to keep you motivated and monitoring your progress. The free Nike Training Club app has 185+ free workouts from strength and endurance to mobility and yoga, and apps like My Fitness Pal can count your calories. You can even turn your phone into a step counter.




Get Pumping Cardio is important, and not just to track on your wearable. Many gyms are getting into monitoring to encourage zone training. You can try out workout sessions that split cardio and strength training in one session, monitoring your progress as you go. You can track your heart rate as you work on strength between bouts of rowing and running.

Body Weight is Back What once was old is new again. Body weight training is finding its way back into popularity and with good reason. It’s simply using your own body weight to exercise your muscles—think pushups and pull-ups. If done well over time, body weight training is an effective and efficient way to get in shape. And, you can do it just about anywhere—at home, at the gym or on the road.

Kick Some Butt Inspired by MMA, martial arts and boxing, butt kicking workouts are still popular. Martial arts are more than just about selfdefence. They also teach discipline while improving strength, coordination and balance. Krav Maga and Taekwondo are just two of the many martial arts enjoying a surge in popularity these days.




Let’s Get Bendy Yoga isn’t going anywhere. As popular as ever, yoga’s poses and postures are a great way to work out. You can improve mobility, strength, flexibility and coordination with yoga. There are many disciplines within yoga, so you can choose the right one for you. Ashtanga, Bikram, Hatha, Hot and Vinyasa are among the common types of yoga. It’s an exercise for anyone, from kids to expectant moms to seniors.

Spin Out Indoor cycling—spinning as we know it—is still a fitness staple. Hop on a bike, no helmet required, and off you go. Spinning focusses on endurance and strength, and can use intervals of high intensity to maximize your workout. It’s low impact too, so it’s great for people with joint issues. You can set your own speed, intensity and resistance, making it a great routine for anyone looking for a custom exercise experience.




Get Personal Need some one-on-one help to get and stay motivated? Or to make sure you’re getting the right workout for your needs? A personal trainer is just what you need. Educated and certified in fitness and nutrition, a trainer can guide you through a custom workout that helps you achieve your fitness goals and can keep you on track.

The Right Spot No matter what fitness goal you have or activity you want to try, you can find the gym or studio with the amenities you want. Gyms are no longer large, fluorescent-lit rooms of weights and machines. These days, it’s about perks. You can now enjoy features like 24-hour access, training on demand and group classes in everything from dance to core to stretching and more.

Plenty of Options Whatever your fitness needs, there’s a place for you. Whether you’re looking for an intense new challenge or just something to get you moving—now is the time to get off the couch and check out what will work for you.




Foods for Fitness Have you ever tried Oat Milk? It’s easy to make and great for a fitness-focused diet. cup rolled oats (soak in cold water for at least 30 minutes, drain and rinse) 1/2

2 tsp maple syrup 1/8

tsp sea salt


tsp vanilla extract

3 cups water

Blend all the ingredients and enjoy!
