Five on Friday - July 30, 2021 ~ Beyond Van Gogh Experience Calgary, Summer TBR List, Grandma's Desserts, Wine Haul and Pixie Mood Purses

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have had a good week! It has still been a busy stressful week, so I took today off to help me collect myself - going from vacation to everything with my grandma to a busy work week, I really need a day. Also, we are leaving for vacation in Fairmont tomorrow and I need some relaxing time!

Calgary Beyond Van Gogh
We were hosted at the Van Gogh Experience, everything else I purchased myself - this post contains affiliate links 

I was so excited - I have heard about the Beyond Van Gogh Experience a few months ago (it was supposed to happen in Spring, but couldn't because of covid restrictions at that time still), and I was thrilled to be invited to a little sneak peek yesterday before the exhibit opens today in Calgary, July 30 and it is running through to August 29!

Tok Beauty - Eyes That Tok Mascara and Lip Tonic Swatches and Thoughts

I've really wanted to try new brands this year, and the pandemic has really helped encourage me to find new, local brands to try! Cue, Tok Beauty!

There are not many Calgary brands that focus on makeup, so I'm always excited to find them and support them! I just received the Eyes That Tok mascara in my Summer 2021 Jilly Box, and so I checked them out and also picked up the Lip Tonics so I could try more from the brand!

Manicure Monday - Matte Chartreuse Nails, Essie Have A Ball Polish

Happy Manicure Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! I had a pretty difficult past week and weekend and I may have more simple nails over the next couple of weeks -  I hope you can be understanding and hoping you still like all the polishes I'm sharing!

Okay, I have been loving the matte polishes and I've just been getting in to the super matte finish and I love it!

Five on Saturday - July 24, 2021 ~ June 2021 Owlcrate, Penticton and Revelstoke Visits, my Grandma, and Six Crimson Cranes Pre-order Goodies!

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you all have had a great week - it's been a really long week, getting back from holidays and getting back to work and some heavy personal stuff as well, so I'm looking forward to the weekend!

June 2021 Owlcrate

I just received my June Owlcrate subscription (there was some delays waiting for products, so it's a little late!) and this month's theme is "Go Your Own Way" - each month the book Owlcrate includes is signed by the author and comes with a note from the author as well. They often have special edition covers just for the box, and they seem to include a lot of exclusive items just for Owlcrate, which is so fun! As a bookworm, I have been loving this subscription!

Travel Post ~ My Favourite Wineries in Okanagan, B.C - Naramata, Summerland, Kelowna, Okanagan Falls and Oliver & Osoyoos

Alright, it's no secret around here that I enjoy my wine - we love wine touring, collecting and drinking (we even built a custom wine room in our basement, so we are pretty big wine-os!) 

Travel Post ~ My Favourite Wineries in Okanagan, B.C - Naramata, Summerland, Kelowna, Okanagan Falls and Oliver & Osoyoos
I borrowed photos of the wineries from their websites

We are just on our way home from the Okanagan and we always love picking up wine from there when we are visiting - it's certainly a newer wine region, but honestly I'm impressed with the variety and wines that they have! I have done wine tours in all different areas of the Okanagan and thought I'd share my favourites from each area to help out if you are planning a visit!
