Mani Monday #5

2015-09-28 12.51.40

Hi guys! It seems like I’m in a definite vampy-nails place right now. Just like last week I am rocking another vampy manicure. I actually do love vampy nails all year round, but probably wear them the most during the fall and winter. This manicure combines two of my favourite things, vampy nails and the colour purple, and it is another very fall-appropriate manicure.

Products Used:

OPI Chip Skip
OPI Nail Envy Maintenance (1 coat)
OPI Vampsterdam (2 coats)
Glisten & Glow HK Girl Fast Drying & Super Shiny Top Coat (as always!)

Vamspterdam has a great formula. It applies like butter and isn’t at all patchy. With the addition of HK Girl, my nails were dry and I was able to use my hands (with some limitation) in about 10 minutes. This top coat is seriously amazing.

What is your favourite kind of manicure to wear (ie. brights, glitters, shimmers, nail art, etc)? Let me know in the comments down below!

Snapshot Sunday

Hi guys! I hope you all had a wonderful week! Mine just flew by.

My week started out with a trip to the Terry Fox Monument. My husband and I were talking about how we hadn’t gone together in awhile so we took a short drive there to enjoy the view. This was followed by a trip to Merla Mae for an always delicious ice cream cone.

I also had another coffee date with one of my best friends and her baby. This is seeming to become a regular thing and I’m really enjoying that. You really do learn who your real friends are in life and it is so important to spend time with them.

This week was another one of my best friends’ birthday. She had a little get together at her place to celebrate which was full of great food, and great times. We spent some time playing with her camera and sparklers which ended up creating some awesome pictures.

Today my husband and I decided to take a drive out to Kakabeka Falls to walk around and enjoy the view. The weather was absolutely beautiful today so we thought we should take advantage of it. It is places like this that remind me why I love living in Northern Ontario.

I hope everyone had a great week! Let me know if you did anything interesting in the comments below!

Fall Favourites Tag


Hi guys! Jaclyn Hill recently did a fall favourites tag video and it got me inspired to bring it over to my blog. You can watch Jaclyn’s video here. Although I am definitely a summer girl, my second favourite season is fall. I love a nice sunny crisp day, wearing boots with jeans and a nice fall scented candle.

Favorite Candle


I recently purchased and am loving “Autumn” from Bath & Body Works. It smells red apples, cedar wood and green balsam. It smells like the most delicious apple cider!

Favorite Lip Color

L to R: Venom and Shame

L to R: Venom and Shame

I’ve been loving Urban Decay’s Revolutionary Lipstick on Venom and Shame so far for fall. They are both deep, vampy, but wearable colours for fall.

Favorite Drink

While I recently tried and enjoyed the updated Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, my favourite fall drink is the Starbucks Salted Caramel Mocha. However, I don’t get them every time I go to Starbucks in the fall, I try to just treat myself to them occasionally.

Favorite Blush 

I don’t really have a fall specific blush that I love just for fall. I find that NARS Orgasm goes really well with the warm looks I have been wearing, but I wear it all year round. It is one of my Holy Grail Products.

Favorite Clothing Item

BOOTS. Enough said, haha. I pretty much only wear boots all fall and all winter until I can break out my fun spring/summer shoes.

Favorite Fall Movie

Call me crazy but I don’t think I have a favourite movie for fall! A few of my favourite movies for any time of the year though, are Clueless, White Oleander and the whole Harry Potter Series.

Favorite Fall TV Show

The two shows that I normally wait all summer for their return would be Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal. Shonda Rhimes is a genius. I’m still undecided on how Grey’s will be this season though… if you watch it, you know what I mean. I also love Once Upon a Time but I have to admit, I’m VERY behind on last season and am still catching up.

Favorite Thanksgiving Food

My favourite Thanksgiving food is definitely stuffing. No contest. Homemade stuffing and gravy are such a great combination.

Favorite Halloween Costume

2013-10-25 21.48.32-1

My favourite Halloween costume was when my husband and I dressed up as Pikachu and Ash Ketchum from Pokemon. We are both huge Pokemon geeks and it was fun to incorporate that into halloween.

I tag all of my fellow bloggers who read my blog to do this tag! Please leave me a link to the post in the comments so I can go check it out! If you are a reader and you do not have a blog, please feel free to include your fall favourites in the comments below! I would love to read them!
