Happy Canada Day

It's Friday!!!!

And for us Canadians, it's the start to our long weekend :)

Rachel and I are so excited to road-trip it north to visit our sister 
Melissa and her fiance Chad this weekend. 

There will be outdoor picnics, beach time, and nights out on the town, 
it's going to be fab!

Monday we'll be back at home celebrating Canada Day with friends and fireworks.

We hope you have a lovely weekend!


PS- Here's a song to kick off the weekend!
It's a bit random, but it's got cartoons ;)

Girl on the go

As you may know, Rachel and I have some traveling adventures in store this summer.
And we couldn't be more excited :)

Because such said adventures will be on the more "rugged" end of things.


We're planning to pair down our beauty routines and embrace a more relaxed care-free vibe. 
With this in mind, I thought it might be fun to highlight some of my favorite go-to 
hair styles in a series called a Girl on the Go.

First up...

 Milk Maid Braids

Thanks to Liz of, Late Afternoon, here is an easy 5 minute milk maid braid for those of us who want to embrace our inner Heidi {minus the alps of course} :)

Cute, simple, fast, and fresh. 
Just what you need when you only have moments to assemble a cute do, while on the road.

A playful pout

Just the other day, Rachel and I were talking about how 
much we love a bright and playful pout

Ruby reds and bold corals are often in our make-up rotation.

My current fave however,
is bright pink!

There's something wonderfully optimistic about facing the day
with a punchy smile.

And it's the perfect season to bust out your favorite electric hue,
as we all know it pairs lovely with a tan ;)


P.S. I adore Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Creme in 'Love That Pink'

And because everyone needs to do a little happy dance when Friday comes, 
here's a song for you to do just that :)

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”

Audrey Hepburn

PS. Isn't this photo of Audrey surprising?
Such a funny contrast!

PPS. In the summer, I'm planning to finally read this biography on Audrey Hepburn's life, written by her son. What an interesting perspective!

Hello friend

To our lovely readers, yes, we have been away for a while.
Life has been full, in the best way possible.

Weekend adventures to the cabin, outdoor concerts, catching up with long-lost friends,
 and leisurely evenings spent with family.

Yes, indeed, it has been good.

We hope to share with you some snap shots of what we've been up to in the coming weeks,
as well as our recent musings, inspiring quotes, and upcoming travel plans :)

It's less than 10 days till summer solstice and the beginning of a wonderful season filled with adventure.
