How many of you search on pinterest looking and dreaming of having beautiful nails? I know I do. I spend way too long on there and then when I go to attempt it, I never have the patience to let it dry. Intricate designs are beautiful and good in theory, but just that, in theory. Unless you’re luckily talented in that beauty department, a simple nail is usually the safest way to go.
I love the natural look, and it’s easy to attain. That’s why I wanted to share with you how I get my natural French tip look and I don’t have to wait a million years for it to dry. First of all you’re going to need to pick your weapon…I mean polish.
With each passing month I’m blown away by how fast this year is going by. I mean it’s already August. In four months I’ll be 23, and that’s just an insane concept. This week I’m back with my monthly favourites. These are just a few items that I’ve noticed myself using lots, or I’m just flat-out in love with. Let’s jump right in shall we?
Ah summer, the month of camping, fires (I’m talking about the good kind), smores, beach days, tan skin (or burnt if you’re a ginger like me. The struggle is real) and friends laughing all together. There isn’t really anything like being amongst a great group of friends no matter if you’re camping or not. Last weekend the creative crew and I tried to go camping at Golden Ears, and pretty much anywhere else we could find a spot. The issue was everything was full, so that resulted in us camping in a friends backyard. Even though it wasn’t the great out doors we still had a ball. Backyard camping is still in ya’ll!
To start the weekend we gathered at my friends house and then set out to the beach to kill time till the rest of the crew came.
This past weekend I hopped in the car with my family and headed to the Okanagan. The Okanagan is one of my favourite places in the world, some of my best childhood memories take place there. My parents try to go once a month to visit my grandma. I on the other hand have not been there in over four years. Worst. Grandchild. Ever.
I am however not the only one who loves the Okanagan. Trying to book a place to stay was next to impossible! That’s when we stumbled across the perfect little B&B Harvelle House. Nestled behind (or in front, depending how you look at it) of Giant’s Head in Summerland is where you’ll find this whimsical house.
Today I thought I’d give you an insight into one of my favourite places ever, Fort Langley. The Hudson’s Bay company originally built Fort Langley in 1827. So as you can imagine this town has seen lots of history, and it’s still going strong. Most of the buildings have been restored and it’s quaintness can be found on your TV screens most commonly in Once Upon A Time or most Hallmark movies.
The biggest draw for me to this town is the cute cafe Wendel’s, it’s on a corner across from the train tracks. It has an exquisite menu for both food and drinks. My drink is a Chai tea latte with almond milk. Wendel’s is super friendly to those with allergies, all you gluten-free people rejoice. The best part is there is a book store to browse before or after your meal, or while you’re waiting for your drink. Check out my recent visit below!
Can you believe its freaking July?! I’m sorry, am I the only one freaking out? Seriously where has the time gone! I’m going to blink and it will be Christmas, though that wouldn’t really be an issue considering I love Christmas.
If you don’t know me my name is Natalie Farrow and I am an actor, producer, writer, event planner, amateur photographer, social media/branding marketer. Let’s just say I’m a woman of many hats and my day planner is colour coded down to priority A, B, and C. I started blogging off my acting website to get a feel for it, but what I was blogging about wasn’t exactly acting related. So I thought I would start a blog that is about everything else in my life, with just a hint of acting, because let’s be real I can’t not talk about it.
The first post on my blog is a monthly favourites, lot’s of YouTubers do this, so I thought I’d snag that idea and use it here. I think it’s a great way to introduce myself so we can get to know each other a little more. The list is long so I’m just going to jump right into it. Continue reading →
