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.
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.
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 share part 1 of my ocean room decor DIY’s for all you summer loving people out there. If you love the ocean, you know there is nothing like sitting on the sand hearing the waves crash against the shore as you dig your toes into the sand and let it fall through your fingers. The ocean brings a calmness so why not add a little serenity and calmness to your room for that fresh summer feeling.
The first DIY is a cute little banner that you can hang over your bed, on your wall or over your desk.
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 →
