Sunday Adventures at Upper Canada Village

Hello friends! Steph and I drove down to meet Alicia in Upper Canada Village today where we spent the afternoon admiring the monuments and gorgeous views. In the evening, we visited Upper Canada Village's wicked pumpkin light exhibition called the Pumpkin Inferno. There are thousands of carved pumpkins arranged beautifully in different themed exhibits. We had a really great time!

I hope you all had a happy Sunday! Thanks for stopping by! xo

Autumn Eyes

Happy Saturday friends! It's been quite a hectic week for me. Simon and I recently found out that our closing date has moved forward to November 3 instead of December 1. While we are super thrilled, we are also scrambling to get everything ready for our move! This week consisted in a lot of shopping, deciding which insurance providers we would use and planning our move itself. I was quite tired this week and woke up very late most days. I only had time to slap on mascara and foundation most mornings, so today it felt great to take my time and create an orange autumn inspired eye look.

I used different shades of orange, red, and a touch black eyeshadow from the Coastal Scents Mirage Palette to create this look. The eyeliner I used is the Benefit BADgal Waterproof Eyeliner pencil.

How has everyone's week been? I'm off to continue cleaning and sorting my room (when you move you really realize how much stuff you've accumulated!! Am I a hoarder?) Talk to you soon! xo

Sightseeing in Prince Edward County

Hello lovely readers! Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends! It's a long weekend here and I'm spending it at the cottage with my parents. Coming to the cottage means relaxing, enjoying nature's beauty and catching up on my sleep! It also gives me a chance to spend time with one of my best friends, Alicia, who lives very close to the cottage (as opposed to 3 hours away from Ottawa!). We spent the day together yesterday driving around enjoying the beautiful fall scenery, and visiting whatever grabbed our attention along the way.

Lake on the Mountain Provincial Park
Pretty county road
Artisan Cheese Co.
Creasy's Apple Dabble Farm 
Ruthford Stevens Lookout

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by! xo

NOTD: Speckled Pink

Hello lovelies! Forever 21 nail polishes are a hidden gem. They are super inexpensive and always on trend. This gorgeous polish is an oldie from my collection which doesn't get enough love. I stumbled across it while sorting out my collection a few weeks ago and decided to showcase it on my blog. Its a pretty baby pink with small black glitter. I love the layered look this polish gives, with glitter peeking through between coats and also showing on the last coat. It reminds me of the jelly sandwich nail polish trend from a few years back.
This polish has amazing staying power thanks to the glitter it contains. It is also slightly stubborn to take off, as most glitter polishes are. I find this trade off totally worth it however! It lasted a full 5 days without chipping. The only only downside to Forever 21 polishes is that they do not have names. This polish is simply labelled "Black/Pink".

Are you a fan of Forever 21 polishes? Thanks for stoppping by! xo
