Over this weekend, there was a festival happening in Edmonton called SkirtsaFire run by the ever so cool Annette Loiselle.

The event, which is in its third year, is about empowering and celebrating women in the arts. I was 100% sold when I saw there was going to be yoga in the morning at an art gallery.
