Five Essentials to Pack this Holiday Season

Five Essentials to Pack this Holiday Season

Wherever you're going this holiday season, whether to another continent or to your mother's across town, packing right sets the tone for your trip. There's nothing worse than being grossly underdressed compared with your sister, or packing those skinny pants, when let's face it, elastic waists are they way to go both poolside and fireside. Packing light is also often a must this time of year since much of your suitcase space is required for gifts. That's why we recommend packing five essentials for any destination plus a killer weekender bag like this one from jeane & jax, now 50% off: 1. Sunglasses. There...

RURAL GIRL FEATURE: Alberta Women Entrepreneurs (AWE) CEO has Rural Roots

RURAL GIRL FEATURE: Alberta Women Entrepreneurs (AWE) CEO has Rural Roots

AWE is the only organization in Alberta dedicated to enabling women to build successful businesses. Women entrepreneurs can obtain financing from AWE and have access to its tremendous start-up and growth programs. Marcela, an entrepreneur herself, hails from Beaumont, Alberta and is intent on seeing more rural participation in AWE. Her vision for the organization got us so excited that we invited Marcela to speak in High Prairie in 2017. Stay tuned for that RFG Women in Business talk! We met Marcela among the...

Constantly Learning, Planting, Growing

Constantly Learning, Planting, Growing

You might recognize these three words. We borrowed them from Christie's Gardens and Greenhouses to write this post about change. Christie's is a stellar operation located just outside of High Prairie, Canada. We highly recommend that you drop by there for a visit.   Christie has captured what life and business, and of course, gardening is all about. As we worked hard these past 10 days to shake things up at RFG, we reflected upon these words. 1. Growth. We painted a wall.  It seems like a small thing, right? Well, it was a big deal for us on many levels. First,...

RFG Model Signs with Modelling Agency

RFG Model Signs with Modelling Agency

Angelique Tisserand is a nurse during the week in High Prairie and, now, a model by profession on weekends across Western Canada. We knew we had made the right move by making her one of the faces of RFG. The reaction was overwhelming. Ange, definitely has the look and she's like-minded.  Angelique's is the first face visitors to our RFG site see.   Whenever we asked her to model, Angelique committed right away, saying that she would be honoured to help out and support local stores and women. She gets what RFG is about and, like us, is fiercely supportive of community. We...
