This photoshoot for Saskatoon Bridges Newspaper was such a blast. The location was breathtaking. This is the epitome of a Saskatchewan summer. I absolutely love the contrasting blue skies and yellow canola flowers!
I chose this light and flowy maxi dress because I knew it would look great within the majestic fields. I wanted to amp up the dress with gold and turquoise accessories.

Laura Cone, a child development specialist in Saskatoon, teaches parents the art of infant and pediatric massage.

For Saskatoon foodies, the opening of Top Chef Canada (and Saskatoon homeboy) Dale Mackay’s Ayden can’t come soon enough. On Aug. 29, about 50 guests were treated to a four-course gourmet meal featuring Saskatchewan fare prepared by Mackay and his team. The dinner was accompanied by perfectly paired cocktails, courtesy of Lucky Bastard Distillers, and Ayden’s GM and mixologist Chris Cho. The intimate dinner, which was co-hosted by RSVP Event Designs, was held on a beautiful summer evening at the Saskatoon Farmers’ Market.
Global Saskatoon’s Morning News anchor Lisa Dutton and CTV news anchor Trish Cheveldayoff pose in the studio for a cover story on what life is like in the spotlight for Saskatchewan’s most recognizable news anchors.
“Melissa Veszi grew up wearing costumes; she danced full-time and was heavily involved in musical theatre. But it wasn’t until her music career took off, and HunnyB was born, that her appreciation for fashion began.

“I love how different it is — it’s one thing to make a person look hideous, it’s another to make a person look beautiful, fashionable and trendy.”
