Waking up at the Thompson with Origins

Last week, I had the opportunity to spend the night at the Thompson with a small group of bloggers to experience the glory that is the new GinZing line from Origins. Staycations are key when your schedule leaves little room for relaxation, so I jumped at the mention of lavished dining, cozy movie nights and calm mornings laying under the sun (that is yoga for those of you who may have a different approach to the art).

Let's Get Candid

I was scaling through a plethora of awkward poses and could not for the life of me, choose a single photo from this shoot (out of the 50 shots we took) to post on Instagram. The poses were off, my face was awkward, or the photo just simply did not make the cut. Then it dawned on me, "do I really need that perfect shot?"

Muskoka Getaway: Road trip with Ford Canada

Last week, I took some time out of my city centric schedule to unplug and retreat to a beautiful Muskoka cottage courtesy of Ford Canada. In honour of Canada's 150th year, I've decided to dedicate time to exploring more of Canada, starting with short journeys with friends and family to nearby destinations. Road trips are always better spent with loved ones, and Best Friend's Day made for the perfect opportunity to kick off the Summer with my #FordConnections getaway. I brought my sister; my bestie since birth, along to share the Ford experience as we don't always get to spend much time together since moving downtown. We packed our bags, picked up the 2017 Ford Edge and embarked on our road trip up to cottage country.

Everyday Makeup Routine: Minimal is More

Over the years, I've gone through phases of wearing no makeup, to sporting winged liner daily, to going out with a full face of makeup regularly (my version of it is pretty down played), to finding a minimal look I could truly live with for the rest of my life. 

If there was one step in my make-up routine that I had to prioritize, it would be lashes. I could go out bare faced and lashes would still make me feel glamorous. I've come to find that I'm most comfortable with a light layer of foundation, concealer, lashes (lash extensions or mascara), lightly filling in my brows, and occasionally a little blush. This here is my ideal look. There's no worry about lipstick smudging, fading eyeliner, or touching up my make-up throughout the night. It's a natural look for everyday wear. 

What's your ideal look?
