    Kelowna Beer Crawl

    A Walkable Brewery Tour of Downtown Kelowna There is nothing I enjoy more than a well-thought-out plan! It only seemed fitting that for my weekend visit to Kelowna I map out a brewery tour route. I went to high school in Kelowna and I can’t believe how much it has grown! It has been a pleasant surprise to see how it has transformed over the years; Breweries, cideries, new wineries, and restaurants have been popping up all over, almost giving me big city vibes. There are quite a few options for guided brewery tours in Kelowna, if I was a tourist I may consider booking one so that I could…

    Summer Essentials: Add these to your shopping cart

    Everything you need to make the most of the summer season. Summer is by far my favourite season, it is no secret that I live for the beach. Most weekends I spend the majority of my time outside working on my tan. As a seasoned summer lover, I did a round-up of all my essentials, especially because outside adventures seem to be the main source of entertainment right now. My Summer Essentials Hexagonal Flat Lens Sunglasses A good dupe for the Ray-Ban Hexagonal Flat Lenses with a way nicer price tag. These retail for under $20, are super compact and are polarized! I keep these in my purse for afternoons…

    Home Tour – My Living Room

    The coziest room in my home, after my bedroom, of course. A look into my bohemian-inspired living room. This is typical of me, but after I finished decorating my living room, all I kept thinking is how nice it would be to have been if I had gone with an all-white theme and stuck with neutral colours. I know, so annoying. I can never make up my mind. I think I am too messy for a white couch though. I am the first to admit that I tend to go for design over function, but for a living room, I really wanted it to be comfortable, functional, and have a…

    No Make-Up Look

    I have been trying to ditch the makeup, purely out of laziness. Like most people, working from home has created an endless routine of sports bras, messy buns, and no makeup. When I have to leave the house, I really have to push myself to get ready. I hate the feeling of removing mascara from my eyelashes at the end of the day or looking in the mirror, only to discover that crusty crumbs of my mascara are now dusting my undereyes. Determining which occassions garner a prepped face was becoming very challening. I decided that a scaled back, low maintenance routine was needed. Don’t get me wrong, I love…

    The Perfect Bar Cart

    Bar Cart Styling and Bar Cart Essentials for Your Next Cocktail Night When I first started re-organizing my living room, I came to the conclusion that I had just enough room to put a bar cart in my dining area. Considering 2020 had me doing most of my entertaining from home, it seemed like a necessary progression. To be completely transparent, I am in no way an expert at crafting cocktails so this is my beginners guide to stocking your at home bar, while also making it look aesthtically pleasing. As a newbie to the cocktail world, I did extensive research on all the bar cart essentials. My starting off…

    How to Build a Skincare Routine

    Beyond cleanser, toner, and moisturizer, what other active ingredients do you need for your skin? A Complete Guide on How to build a day and nighttime skincare regime. My skincare routine consists of buying whatever fad products are in the market and then waiting for them to die out. JLo has me fully convinced there is a fountain of youth and I know it is not filled with olive oil. My approach has been mostly trial and error, but I do get quite a few questions on my Instagram about my skincare routine and I have really been limping through it. I took it upon myself to scour the internet…

    My Boho Inspired Master Bedroom

    My favourite neutrals, budget-friendly tips, and all the things that make my bedroom cosy. When I first moved into my place it was the opposite of relaxing, there were so many different paint colours and window treatments, it wasn’t speaking to my aesthetic. Over the years, I have been slowly chipping away at making upgrades. Switching out my queen for a king was a pretty bold move for my small space. It also meant finding bedside tables that would allow the switch. To accommodate my growing wardrobe, I had to add in a PAX wardrobe. A drastic closet edit is probably needed, since I have way too many clothes and…

    10 Things I Learned About Myself in 2020

    I spent a lot of time alone in 2020 and I learnt a lot about me! Understanding my behaviours, skills and values help me improve my bad habits and understand my triggers. I have also applauded myself for being very self-aware and coachable. Although I don’t like change, I am open to it. I am constantly searching for ways to improve my connections, improve my skillset, or work on myself. I have done quite a few annual wrap-ups over the years, but I’m sure it is fairly boring for me to expect complete strangers to be inspired by my goals, so this year, I decide to share all the personal…

    How to Host a Raclette Dinner Party

    Everything you need to know to set up a raclette and host a dinner party One of the nice things to come out of quarantine is my desire to host. When most of the restaurants were closed in the summer, hosting at home was really the only option, with my bubble obviously. Since this New Years’ Eve, we were under strict restrictions to continue to stay home and only socialize with our bubbles, it seemed like a perfect opportunity to finally invest in getting a raclette. I have never been crazy about fondue, so raclette seemed like a good option. It is really the perfect no fuss dinner party idea…

    One-Step Hair Dryer – Revlon Vs Hot Tools

    I reviewed styling brushes so you don’t have to! I was recently in Whistler with my girlfriends and they were hyping the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer Hot Air Brush. I couldn’t believe that they all had this brush and I had never even heard of it. The product is supposed to help you create a salon-style blowout at home. Since I only wash my hair every couple of days, getting long-lasting results from my blow out is something that makes my life a lot easier. Hot Tools Professional One-Step Blowout Styler I immediately went to London Drugs to get the brush but unfortunately, they only had a Hot…
