My Time in Dawson Creek

Where have I been?! I was in Whitecourt, AB for two nights with my man. We hadn’t seen each other for over a month so it was nice to spend some alone time with him even though it was short lived. We reconnected over wine, went swimming in the MacLeod River and binge watched Orange is the New Black at night’s.

Reality & Perception

I recently came across and article that completely fit my current life situation. I felt like the universe was sending me a signal that I wasn’t even full aware that I needed.

Bath Time

I LOVE me some baths! Like looooooove that quiet me time! I let the water run, usually too hot, load it up with bubbles and epsom salts. I pour myself a cup of coffee or sometimes a glass of wine depending on what time of the day it is. Then I bring in a current book I am reading or my laptop to catch up on TV shows or movies. However putting your computer on a towel on the toilet and your glass on the floor isn’t as luxurious or comfortable…

Introducing the bath shelf!

Now these images are ones I have seen on Pinterest and Google Image Search. I mentioned to my man how much I would love to have one and what does he do?! He surprises me with one he made himself! Oh how I love when he does manly, romantic things like that!

The Summer Tag

Remember those long chain emails that used to get sent around from your friends where you answered questions and MAYBE admitted to a crush and forwarded it along? Or when Facebook first started and there was the Notes section that people asked numerous personal questions and tagged others in them? Well know there are “tags” all over blogs and YouTube channels! I always loved these questionnaires, they were my guilty pleasure so I am happy to answer this Summer tag for all of you! Let’s get to it…

1. What’s your favourite thing about summer?

My favourite thing about summer is the weather! Cruising around under the hot sun with the windows down, music up and shades on, doesn’t get much better than that.

2. Do you have a favourite summer drink?

In the summer time I like to drink cold beers, one of my new discoveries is called Radler by Moosehead! It’s a grapefruit, lime and grab flavoured light lager. It is sooooo good and soooo sad because I think you can only get them on the East coast of Canada in the Maritime provinces.

3. Is there a location you like to go each summer?

Every summer I like to go to my family cabin at Turtle Lake. It’s a small, retro home away from home that holds so many memories of mine. I have been going there for over 10 years now!

4. Favourite make-up look for summer?

In the summer I don’t wear make up everyday, especially if I’m going to be sweating it all off outside. I usually switch my foundation to a tinted moisturizer and just use a bit of bronzer and mascara (They’re Real by Benefit), good to go!

5. Dresses or skirts?

Shorts! I have numerous denim shorts and coloured shorts but only a few dresses and even less skirts.

6. Sandals or ballet pumps?

Flip flops! I have a cute blue casual pair (similar here), a black comfy pair (exact here) and a fancy bling bling pair (similar here).

7. Do you prefer to wear your hair up or down for summer?

My hair is super thick and long and can make me feel a lot hotter than I need to be when outside so my hair is usually up in a high pony or brushed over to the side in a braid.

8. Deep smoky eyes or bold lips?

Smoky eyes, I haven’t ventured into the bold lips thing yet.. I think I am just too afraid that my teeth aren’t white enough yet for red or coral or plum lips.

9. Favourite perfume for summer?

Pure Paradise from Bath & Body Works is what I always wear because my boyfriend loves it and he picked it out for me last summer when we first met! Awww!

10. Last but not least, favourite music for summer?

I like upbeat fun, fast dance tunes in the summer as well as country sing alongs. Some of my jams I’m listening to right now are Prayer in C, Rage, What If I Was Willing, Now I’m All Messed Up, Hold On, You Win My Love, Do It Again and Your Love

I’m all pumped up for summer now, if only the sun would come out! I got my post from Makeup Savvy and now I tag ALL OF YOU to do this in the comments or either on your own blog so I can read your awesome answers.
