Happy Wednesday or Humpday if you will. I don’t know about you but I am currently snowed in under ten inches of snow. So I think that there is nothing better than to spend your day pampering yourself and why not start with a great face mask? That way your skin will be prepped and ready to finish out the week. Just remember only one more day till Friday. You can do this in the morning if you’re one of the lucky ones that don’t have to start your day early or at night to wind down after a long day. My favourite masks are by the amazing brand Origins.
Happy New Year! It’s been a while. Once the New year comes, everyone starts saying “New Year, New Me”. I’ve seen that quote posted on almost every social media site, it’s actually a little excessive. However it did get me thinking, what would a new me look like? and therefore it got me thinking about my hopes, dreams and goals for the New Year.
Some of my goals are very meaningful to me, and those are the ones that I’ll try to accomplish to the best of my ability. Others however are kind of just on the list, though they are things I want to do, if they don’t happen I won’t be too torn up about it. For the goals I really cared about I wanted to find a way to make them seem attainable. So instead of writing a lengthy list of things I want to do this year I wrote steps to accomplish each goal. That way it broke it down and made it less overwhelming and daunting when I looked at a list a mile long.
Here’s some examples of my goals and steps I’m going to take to achieve them.
I swear each year seems to fly by faster and faster. It’s already September and pumpkin is everywhere. I’m not ready to say good-bye to this summer, after all I actually enjoyed it much more than I did my last. So here’s my favourites for the month of August. It’s a shorter list mostly because I was so busy and can’t remember the things I was obsessed with this month. With out further a due, here we go.
A while back in my post about backyard camping I mentioned that I peaced out from the shin dig to head to a photo shoot, well this was it.
Back in July I headed downtown Vancouver for a photo shoot with DISTRICT’ in partnership with Drammatico Chihandbags. I was approached by one of the photographers who said they were taking picture’s of local bloggers, and the style of the shoot was “your interpretation of classy and timeless”. I of course was honoured to be asked and jumped at the opportunity, being an actor, I do love the camera. I however don’t exactly consider myself super stylish. The way I dress is either super casual or super dressy (depending on the occasion) and I don’t really have a “style” other than minimal. I am not going to lie I fretted about this like no body’s business. But then I decided to embrace ME and this was the result.
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.
There is nothing I love more than walking down memory lane, as long as it’s the good lane. The other weekend my family and I headed to Summerland, BC to visit family. We only stayed the one night so we jammed a lot in. The day we planned to leave we hit up some classics and some new places. If you haven’t yet check out my Okanagan Adventure Part 1 to see our trip to Naramata and Poplar Grove.
Alright, let’s pick up where we left off. After leaving the winery, we headed to my aunt’s place and from there we headed into the heart of down town Summerland and took a stroll through the summer market.
This summer has sure turned out to be a lot busier than I thought it would be. This past weekend my family and I headed to the Okanagan, now if you don’t know where that is you’d do best to google it. I’m rather geographically challenged, yet great with directions. I’m an odd soul. To start off our stay we checked into the cutest little B&B the Harvelle House, you can check out my post about it here.
Now that you’re caught up on reading my Harvelle House post, let us pop on into this post shall we? After breakfast at Harvelle House we headed over to my grandmas care home to visit, after all she was the guest of honor and the whole reason we went to the Okanagan in the first place.
