Bold Zinfande
l – Try Gnarly Head Zinfandel from California. $18.99, great with a bowl of elk stew while hibernating for the night.
Blended Red for easy pairing - Chili, Pizza or Meat and Cheese, the Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon from Penfolds $16.99 is fantastic.
Merlot – Pairs with a lot of dishes and is also a people pleaser, great for company or last minute gifts. Wolf Blass $14.99 or Yellow Tail for $12.99 are perfect. Looking for more flavour? Go for a BCVQA like Blasted Church Merlot Cab Sav $25.99

Fashion Trends Explained.
1. Legwarmers – Last winter season saw a revival of the much beloved ‘80s aerobic staple, the legwarmer. This season it’s back and going strong. People wearing legwarmers might seem ridiculous. But think about it – it’s a sweater for your calves. Your legs are chilly in those leggings and paper-thin skinny jeans. Show your calves and ankles, or cankle if you will, some love with a cozy sweater of sorts. To sweeten the deal today’s legwarmers come in modern colours and cute Nordic prints. Add a pair to your lonely boots.

2. Printed Tights - Taking Fernie by storm, this season’s hottest trend is most defiantly the printed legging or tights. If prints are a little loco for you, ease into it with a coloured tight like navy or burgundy. Tights of all colours and prints are the rage, scoop up a pair quickly.

Fashion Question: Can I do printed leggings with legwarmers? YES, however no print on print. One or the other should be a solid.

Social Media Check In - Instagram app
I thought this social media trend would fade, but it seems to be captivating Fernie more and more as it grows in popularity throughout the world. Keep in touch with your favorite friends, brands, and celebrities in the form of photography art. Say what you want about the integrity of Instragram photos, but I think we can all agree they look pretty cool.
