We started out our trip with a little bit of wine tasting - we went to Okanagan Falls and went to Noble Ridge, Blasted Church and a few smaller places too. Such a fun day! 

This picture was taken at Noble Ridge - it's a gorgeous place with a little view of Vaseux Lake and it's so pretty!

Happy Monday everyone - I hope you all had a great weekend!

Did these bright pink shiny nails catch your attention?! Good they should - this month's Mani Monday theme is activism and while I planned somewhat to focus on Pride and Indigenous issues (given that it's pride and Indigenous history month), however the U.S. and their landmark decision to overturn a 50 year old law, is crazy enough that we need to talk about women's rights and health access.

Oooh I was so excited to hear that Kaitlyn Bristowe was coming to Calgary for a Spade & Sparrows event - I loved her on the Bachelor/Bachelorette, she is hilarious on her podcast, and the wine is delicious! So naturally, I managed to line up after work and get a few bottles of wine signed - she was so sweet and the team was great!

New Yves Saint Laurent Nu Lip & Cheek Balmy Tint in Nu Pinch - Swatches and Review

Okay, who am I getting two new product reviews up in just as many days?! Ya, pretty with it beauty blogger over here - I'm being sarcastic over here, as I usually take forevvvver now to review new products; but, I really spotted this earlier this month, bought it early and tried it multiple times right away!

I haven't really seen this "Nu" line from YSL; but, I was excited - it is a high end designer brand and when I saw this on the Sephora app, it's reasonably priced for the brand! (I checked it out and it looks like is was released last year influenced by the eco-conscious gen Z and featuring botanical ingredients (sourced from YSL Beauty’s Ourika Comunity Gardens in Morocco) as well as packaging made from recycled materials and printed with vegetable inks. The range was designed to offer “unapologetic” natural coverage, allowing “real skin” to show through!

New JVN Complete Conditioning Mist

Alright, you might know by now that I am a big JVN fan (I did a little gush when I reviewed some of their shampoo and conditioner line back in March) - I think a haircare line is fantastic for them and I'm so excited to see what else they will come out with!

So, when I was invited to be a part of the JVN Beauty Community, and receive products in exchange for an honest review, I was pretty excited! And, when I found out their newest product launch was going to be a leave-in conditioning mist, I was super excited! (I was in need of a new one as I was running low on one I wasn't loving but needed a new one).
