Hello! My name is Shylo.
This is kind of a “my first blog post” type of post, even though it is not my first post – it’s just my first post in a long time, and hopefully the start of me actually posting on a regular basis.
I have been wanting to “start” (keep up with) my blog for quite a while. I just didn’t know where to start, or what my “thing” was, so I figured I would kind of restart, so to speak.
First off – Re-introduction:
As I said – my name is Shylo. I’m 24. I hold a diploma in photojournalism and a Bachelor’s degree in professional communications. I love writing, wine, travel, and my dog. ;P
In my last post, I talked about quitting my job because it wasn’t the right fit. That was months ago, and quite a bit has changed since then. I was working as a contract Digital Marketing Specialist and a Barista at the time. I quit the marketing job and just worked as a Barista full-time until finding my current job, where I now work in wine.
I plan on using this blog more regularly as an outlet. I want it to be all about Calgary, travel, wine; maybe with some opinion pieces thrown in. Since I just started working in wine, I am still a beginner – so I plan on writing about my wine journey as well since I’m very excited to throw myself into the world of wine! Also, I MIGHT rename the site, but I haven’t decided yet.
Currently drinking: (a feature I plan on adding to all blog posts, when relevant).
Spirit Hills Winery | Bonfire What I love about this wine: It is a mulled wine, so you drink it warm which is something that sparked my interest when I discovered it at Calgary Winefest. Their website pretty much sums it up: “Drinking it makes you feel like Christmas, no matter what time of year.” * NOT what I am drinking in the photos. The photos are from weeks ago*.
Thank you for reading!
