30 Day Snap #30 | finale

Hello beautiful people!
I can't believe that I'm already finished with this challenge!
I'm glad that I did it, it was a lot of fun!

To prepare for Canada day tomorrow my friend and I built a fire pit in her yard for us to use tomorrow.
It was a lot of work, but we got it done :) 

Thank you for joining me in this challenge!
I hope that you all enjoyed this as much as I did :)

Summer Clothes! :)

Hello again my beautiful people :)
I just wanted to share with you my outfit for my dad's reunion BBQ.
I am really loving the high waisted bottoms paired with the cropped tops!
Very summery!
I find that wearing things like this really make my waist look a lot smaller and I'm loving that!

So here's the breakdown:
Sunglasses: Raybands
Top: Garage
Bottoms: Bluenotes
Shoes: Wetseal

30 Day Snap #29 | Summer Days

Hello beautiful people :)
Today my dad had a reunion with his group of friends from High School.
It was taking place at a house that one of the guys rented on Niagara on the Lake.
I have to say today was a beautiful day for a BBQ.
I didn't realize how beautiful Niagara on the Lake is and I wish that I was able to walk around and take more pictures.

But the house itself was beautiful.
It was an older and smaller house, but it was cute and had character.
The backyard was beautiful with all of the flowers and the tiny shed in the back.
I had a great day being in Niagara on a great summer's day and learning more about how my dad was as a child!

Here are a few more pictures from today.
Selfies with my brother on the roadtrip there

Oh look, my puppy came along!

More selfies!

 I hope you are all enjoying your weekend!

Fancy Friday #7

Hello beautiful people :)
I really need to start planning out my blogging schedule around work and school now!
I promise this will be my last late blog post, unless I have a really good reason.
So here it is, yesterday's Fancy Friday!
This is Maybelline's Gel Eyeliner in the colour Eggplant.
When I first used this product, I wasn't a fan of it because I didn't like the way it applied.
But I gave it another chance and I found that the more I used it the more I liked it.
You're really able to control how you want it to look.
The Eggplant goes on quite thinly, but it's very easy to build up.
I'm excited to start using more gel eyeliners.
 This is Clinique's Chubby Stick in the shade 04 Mega Melon.
I've had this for months and just never tried it, until this week. 
I love wearing lipstick, my lips feel naked without something on them.
Since, I've been working at Harvey's I can't really wear a bold lip because that would look odd.
So I gave this one a try.
The colour is very subtle and is a tinted lip balm.
It's almost like a nude/maroon shade.
It's a very nice every day lip product and I quite enjoy it!
I got this for free because I had a certain amount of Beauty Insider points at Sephora.
I don't think I would buy this because I'm sure  there are drugstore tinted lip balms that works just as great.
This is my new camera.
It's a Nikon COOLPIX P520.
I use this camera to take 99% of my blog photos and when I'm going out.
But I've been using this camera a lot this week because my brother had his graduation and other events.
I am so happy that I got this camera because I love the quality of the pictures.
It's a great size and has amazing zoom.
This is my first 'fancy' camera and I think this is a great starting camera for those interested in getting something like this.
The price isn't too bad when you compare it to other cameras!
I'm still learning with this camera, but overall it's amazing!

 My last favourite is very cheesy, but a lot has just happened this week.
These people in the pictures above are my best friends.
I cannot begin to describe how much they mean to me!
They all play such an important role in my life.
These 7 beautiful people accept me for who I am.
They don't try to change me and they don't use me.
They're there when I need them and they give me great advice.
They are all completely different from each other, but it makes it even better!
I don't think I would be who I am today if I didn't have them in my life.
I love them to the moon and back and I know I'll still be friends with them in the future.

Well there it is, Fancy Friday has finally arrived!
I hope you enjoyed it!

30 Day Snap #28 | Food

Hello beautiful people :)
I had a wonderful girly evening with my best friend!
We had dinner at East Side Mario's then went shopping and watched No Strings Attached. 
I had a blast, I love having girly and fun dates with my friends. 

Since I went shopping, expect a haul soon...
& I know it's Friday and there is no fancy Friday!
This day got busy real fast!
I'm going to try to get it up tomorrow and if not it will be up before the weekend is finished :)

30 Day Snap #27 | Puppy Love

Hello beautiful people :)
Sorry I'm a little late with this post.
When I got home last night, I was so tired that I ended up crashing!

Yesterday, my puppy got a bath and I ended up doing a little shopping for him!
When I brought him home, we ended up doing a little photoshoot.
He doesn't like the camera, so it took a while to get good shots.
But after about an hour, I got a lot of great photos of my baby!

30 Day Snap #26 | Summer School

I have to learn to get back into a routine with my readings so I don't overwhelm myself!

Just so everyone knows I didn't fail a university course :)

My Baby Brother is No Longer a Baby!!

Hello beautiful people :)
As many of you know, my little brother graduated from Grade 8 yesterday.
Two years ago my cousin and my best friend's little brother graduated from grade 8 and it didn't compare to my brother's graduation.
The age gap between my brother and I is five years, so I still see him as little, whereas my cousin acts closer to my age.
Not only was my brother graduating, but so was my cousin and my basically sister.

If you're asking why I keep calling her my basically sister, it's because her mom babysat me when I was little and I dance with her.
I spend so much time with her that she is family to my brother and I.
It was definitely something else watching them graduate.
I knew 90% of my brother's grade because they've grown up together and seeing all the guys in their suits and all the girls in their dresses made them look so old!
Last I remember they were tiny little things and suddenly they look like they are ready for high school.

I was happy to be involved in all three of their getting ready processes.
I helped my brother with his hair and did the girls' makeup.
Seeing their before and afters was amazing.
My brother looked handsome and the girls looked absolutely beautiful.
The gym was bloody hot and it was very full, so I started melting after 10 minutes.
But it was definitely worth it :)
I thought it would be nice if I shared some photos of the night with you all!
My brother all grown up!
What I was wearing :)
This is Kassie (my 'sister'), her brother was in the way
My brother getting his diploma
 My cousin Melanie getting her diploma
Kassie looked beautiful :)
I don`t know why Mel and I can`t take nice pictures together
Me with my two girls :)
Justin and Melanie! You can really tell they`re related here!
I just love my brother so much!

I really am a proud big sister!

The family!

Oh look! Mel and I can take a nice picture!

Us, dance girls, are supporting our little graduate!

We really are family!
Doing a big sister-little brother dance!
Last night was great and I wish the three of them the best of luck in high school :)

30 Day Snap #25 |Graduation

Hello beautiful people :)
Today has been an extremely busy day, which is why there is only one post.
My brother, cousin and basically my sister graduated from elementary school today.
I'm so proud that I was there to experience it!

Since my brother didn't require a lot of help in getting ready, I was more than thrilled to do my cousin's and my 'sisters' make up.
To prepare, I deep cleaned all of my brushes and organized my makeup.
But because everything was chaotic, I'll definitely need to clean my brushes again and organize my make up!

That's all for now!
Maybe I'll post some pictures from my brothers graduation tomorrow!

30 Day Snap #24 | Nature

Hello beautiful people :)
I can't believe that this is the last week of June and I'm still going with this challenge!
I am so proud of myself! 

Today, the weather was beautiful for the morning.
The heat was a little excessive, but I prefer it than the cold.
I managed to snap a photo on a bird on my neighbours back fence!

Manicure Monday #8

Hello beautiful people :)
I've realized that I haven't been posting a lot lately, besides the 30 Day Snap Challenge.
I'm hoping that this week, despite the fact that I start my summer course, that I'll be able to post regularly.
I have loads of ideas, I just don't know why I haven't written about them.
hmmm, don't worry that'll change :)

Anywho, it's time for another Manicure Monday!
This week's is very simple, nothing extravagant.
Tomorrow is my brother's graduation and I wanted to keep my nails simple and because my nails weren't cooperating again.
This week I used a very summery colour.
It is Sally Hensen's Coral Reef :)
This colour matches my dress nicely.
I'll do an OOTD for my brother's graduation tomorrow!
I love this colour.
It's such a pretty colour for this time of the year!
It also makes my skin look a little darker :)

That's it for now!
If you have any ideas that I could do for another Manicure Monday, leave a comment below! :)

It was massive and so good! :)

Monsters University is a great film and great for all ages!
Everyone should check it out :) it's a great laugh!

Fancy Friday #6

Hello beautiful people :)
What a beautiful day it is here in Ontario, I hope you guys are having nice weather!
Happy Summer :)
If you're still in school, I hope that your exams are going well!

This week's favourites ended up being a lot of body and face products.
I guess I'm just loving body products this week!
My first favourite is Victoria's Secret Charm Deep-Softening Body Butter in the scent honeysuckle and jasmine.
I've had this product for about five months or so and I love it.
After a few days of wearing it, I noticed a large difference in my skin.
It does an excellent job of softening it.
I've used about half of the jar.
I like that it isn't very thick and my skin doesn't feel slimy after I apply it.
I use this after I get out of the shower and my skin just absorbs all of the moisture.
On top of that, it smells great!
It's a flowery scent and smells like it could be perfume.
The smell isn't too over powering either.
This is Aveeno's Intense Relief Hand Cream.
I love Aveeno products, I have their cleanser, their moisturizer and this hand cream.
My body responds to these products amazingly.
They are a little pricier than other drug store body products, but they are definitely worth the price.
So, I started my new job at Harvey's and I wear gloves a lot of the time whilst I am garnishing people's burgers.
The gloves really dry my hands out and I can't stand dry hands.
My hands are always moisturized and are very soft.

My dad came home at the beginning of the week with this and I had to try it.
I come home from work and the first thing I do is put this on.
They are instantly soft again and it doesn't feel dry at all.
My favourite thing about this hand cream is that it isn't greasy.
95% of the hand creams that I own or have tried leave me with greasy hands.
But this one doesn't at all!
The cream is absorbed immediately :)
This funky, little brush made an appearance in my haul post that I posted two hauls back.
It is Goody's Tangle FX brush and it works wonders.
My hair is a rat's nest when I come out of the shower and it hurts my head to brush through it.
So since I bought this brush, I've been using this and my L'Oreal Detangle Spray when I come out of the shower.
There is no pain when I brush through my hair.
I'll run this through my hair and I literally don't feel any tugging or pulling.
This is so gentle with my hair and I love it!
The bristles feel sharp when I run my finger along them, but they aren't like that when I brush my hair!
I love this little guy!
My last product favourite is Rimmel London's Wake Me Up concealer.
Before this I was using a concealer from E.L.F and I wasn't impressed.
I bought this to replace my other one and I love it.
 It provides excellent coverage and brightens underneath my eye!
I have the shade light/medium and it blends in very nicely!
If you guys are looking for a great drug store concealer I recommend this one!
My last favourite is a video.
So, let me get this out of the way...I love One Direction :)
They did a Skype Scavenger Hunt with Jimmy Kimmel.
This is honestly hilarious and my stomach hurts every time I watch this!
They are so funny and good looking ;)
This is definitely worth watching, I guarantee you will laugh and you will laugh harder if you love One Direction! :)

 That's it for this week :)
Let me know if you've tried any of these products or if you recommend any products that I should try!

30 Day Snap #20| More Cleaning

Hello beautiful people :)
This is my last week before classes start for my summer course and I want to get a lot of things done. 
Since I've organized my room, I figured I should move onto my bathroom. 
I sat in the middle of floor with Mirror Mirror playing and I sorted through my junk!
It took me about three hours but I'm finished :)
The next step is getting all the supplies that I need to complete the organizing!
