DATE NIGHT AT THE LOCKED ROOM
It was date night last weekend! It’s not often that parents with young kids get to go out and enjoy some adult time. I’ve been finding all of these neat things to do in Calgary through Social Media lately (Thank you Jenna King!). It wasn’t hard to convince my friends to join me on a night out in a mystery game room.
The Locked Room is a real-life interactive escape room. You and your friends are locked into a themed room for 60 minutes. By solving a sequence of puzzles, you unlock clues to eventually reveal the key to your escape. It’s not as easy as it sounds, trust me. The Locked Room has only a 15% solve rate. The good thing is that if you are totally stuck, you can ring a little doorbell and ask for a clue.
The experience was so much fun! All 6 of us worked together using our individual strengths to unlock lock after lock. You feel the adrenaline with the red digital clock ticking away and the pressure to finish on time. So did we escape? HECK YES WE DID! We finished with only 5 minutes to spare and were pretty darn proud of ourselves! I actually did the running man to celebrate.
Playing the game was a great way to spend an hour, trying something new. Our winning high kept us talking about it for the next 2 hours over dinner. If you get hooked like me, you can pre-book their new zombie room opening soon! And if you aren’t in Calgary, do a search and see if your city offers something like this!
Now, with any adult night out, I always like to seize the opportunity to dress up a little bit…
I love this classic black and white look because you can add any coloured accessories to make your look pop. My Kate Spade tote arrived in a dust bag print with gold letters “ she tucked her coral lipstick away and floated back to the party”. Not only did I find the perfect match the next day, it started my love for Revlon Colorburst matte balms (mine is Audacious).
I’ve been seeing this striped skirt everywhere this summer. It is a must-have piece that will take you into the fall. This option from Shein is really easy and comfortable to wear as the high-waist is elastic and zips-up at the back. Oh and did mention it is only $9.99? If you are tall, opt for the longer version.
Yep I’m the shortest one in the bunch!
