Anyone who hasn't been to Alberta may think that we're not a very diverse province, but that's not the case at all. Once you've lived here long enough, you quickly realize that the province is full of diversity. There are so many amazing, talented people that reside here from all walks of life.
Unfortunately, it's often easy to overlook the talent that exists around us! So many people with full-time office jobs bust their butts on blogs, makeup artistry, photography, or a ton of other side hustles, and these things can easily go unnoticed. That's where we come in.
As a form of appreciation for all the amazing women in Alberta, we've decided to share some that we think are doing an awesome job right now! This list doesn't even begin to cover everyone that should be included, so if you didn't make it, don't be discouraged! Keep on hustling - there are so many other opportunities for recognition.
In no particular order, here are some beautiful, talented, and creative women in Alberta who are absolutely killing it right now:
Glenda Decasa // @glennymah
Glenda refers to herself as a "travel and lifestyle storyteller", and I don't know about you, but that's the kind of content I love to read! Her page is full of cute outfits, her favourite products, and of course, her adventures in Alberta and around the world!
Krizzia la Maria Scollon // @krinscollon
Krizzia originates from the Philippines but now lives in Alberta where she runs a life and style blog. Both her Instagram and her blog are full of inspiring and encouraging words, advice, snippets of her life with her husband, and her favourite outfits (which are all beyond cute).
TC Lopez // @tc.lopez
If you didn't think it was possible to be an entrepreneur in the beauty industry, TC will definitely prove you wrong. When she's not busy running her Instagram, she works as an Interior Designer, Network & Imagine Consultant, owns her own makeup artistry and lash extension businesses, takes photos for other people, and she's a model to boot! Talk about #GirlBoss.
Jordan Walker // @jordantyana
Seeing as the province of Alberta is home to so many beautiful mountains, it only makes sense to take advantage of them, right? Right! Jordan is doing just that, and she's killing it! She loves photography - particularly taking photos of those gorgeous Rockies. If you're in need of some new IG photos, she's your girl.
Brianna Higdon // @briannahigdon
Brianna may not be an Alberta native, but we love her page nonetheless. This sweet gal re-located from Prince Edward Island to her new home of Alberta, and from the looks of things, she's right at home here! She has a blog which is all about her daily adventures, from her current favourite restaurants to her best travel tips!
Taylor // @tayloronatrip
If you think that your early 20's have been a rollercoaster, just wait until you hear Taylor's story. At 19, she left her small-town Saskatchewan hometown to pursue a career in music in Toronto. She worked at a major record label for five years, and in 2017 she decided to quit her job to pursue freelance writing and travel. She's currently in Alberta, and her Instagram feed tells the story of her travels and the lessons she's learned along the way!
Sandy // @sandhyaarah
If you're looking for a sign to colour your hair blue, this is it. Not only does Sandy have crazy cool hair, but she's also a super cool girl! In her spare time, she creates various kinds of content, including YouTube videos, recipes, outfits, and beauty here in Calgary.
Lauren // @thestyle_gap
I'll be the first to admit it. One of my toxic traits is lusting after clothes that my wallet will never allow me to buy. If you're the same way, then you need to follow Lauren ASAP. She runs a style blog that specializes in cute but affordable fashion - just what every broke university student needs.
Larissa Hazelaar // @larymhaze
For some reason, a lot of people seem to be under the impression that once you become a mom, you're not allowed to get ready anymore. Larissa is here to prove to you that that is, in fact, a myth - you can be a mom, and look killer doing it! Her page is full of awesome makeup looks, cute outfits, inspirational quotes, and so much more.
Brittany Price Bovey // @brittanypricebovey
There's just something so soothing about beautiful home decor. If you feel the same way, then you'll love Brittany's IG feed! Not only does she have a knack for decorating, but she also happens to be a mother to some super cute kiddos who she regularly shows off. Her other account is @littledeermarket - be sure to check it out!
Angela // @angelas_styling_life
Need some more style inspiration in your life? Be sure to check out Angela's blog and Instagram page. She loves all things beauty and fashion, although she's not afraid to admit that she loves Benedict Cumberbatch. Apart from all of this, she's also an author!
Michelle Bishop // @ellesclosetboutique
We all have our favourite big brands, but let's be honest - it feels pretty awesome to support small, local businesses! Michelle is the owner of Elle's Closet in Edmonton, a boutique that carries all kinds of gorgeous ladies apparel. Next time you're looking to update your wardrobe, be sure to drop in and see what they have to offer!
Kershia Campbell // @quintessential_theclothing
If you don't believe what they say about pregnant woman glowing, your mind will be changed as soon as you look through Kershia's page. Even with her baby bump, she still manages to make us envious of every outfit she posts! She calls her page "a personal fashion diary of everyday looks", and she also has a lifestyle blog!
Cassidy Chivers // @cassidychivers
In need of new YouTubers to watch? Why not check out Alberta's own Cassidy! Her channel consists of fun makeup tutorials, popular YouTube challenges, vlogs, clothing hauls, and much more!
Honey Farrah // @honeyfarrah
Located in YYC, Honey is another one of those girls who seems to always have a bomb outfit prepared for any occasion. No matter if she's going on a tropical vacation, or just kicking it back in Calgary, she's always dressed to the nine's! Be sure to toss her a follow if you're in need of some fresh new outfit ideas.
Ana Pejkanovic // @marchandmayblog
Take one look at her page and you'll be able to tell that Ana's the kind of girl who doesn't let anything get in her way. Not only is she over 40 (we never would have guessed), she's also paving the way for other curvy girls with a love for fashion! Check out her IG and blog for all the best fashion tips.
Tatevik K // @lashedbytat
When Tatevik isn't travelling the world or posting beautiful selfies, you can find her lashing away in Alberta! She's created her own brand of amazing strip lashes, called T Rose Lashes, but also offers eyelash extension and tinting services. If you're hoping to feel like a million bucks, she's your girl!
Ella Trowsdale // @ellasdaily
Sometimes you don't have the time to watch a full YouTube tutorial, so a quick video is what you're searching for! Next time that's the case, be sure to visit Ella's IG page. She offers a ton of quick, easy to follow makeup tutorials that will have you feeling and looking awesome. When she's not creating makeup content, she's also a model!
Naeemah // @naeemahmua
For some people, using vegan and cruelty-free makeup products is of the utmost importance. If you're one of those people, you need to follow Naeemah's IG page ASAP! She's a MUA in Alberta and uses only eco-friendly products to create her stunning looks.
Priya Malhi // @priyamalhii
As a model for @worldmgmt, there's absolutely no denying that Priya is gorgeous! It just so happens that she's also a total sweetheart too. She's all about spreading positivity and love among her friends and fans! If you couldn't already tell, she also has a killer sense of style - her outfits have me totally jealous of her closet!
Raeanne Almazan // @raeannedotnet
Another must-follow Alberta YouTuber is none other than Raeanne! Her channel is totally diverse, and includes everything from Sephora hauls and make-up tutorials to vlogs with her family and her adventurous travels!
Avi Seth // @_aviseth
If you've been wanting to step up your IG game for a while now, but have no excuse to go dress up and take photos, I'm here to tell you that you don't need an excuse. All you really need is an amazing photographer like Avi to make you look great! Her photography account is @_avisethphotos - be sure to hit her up next time you're looking to shoot!
Juliana // @lafacieats
If you ask me, there's no such thing as too much food porn on your IG feed. If you agree, then Juliana is the next person you should follow. She's constantly posting photos of delicious food that she's cooked, or found at restaurants around the province!
