Bucket List

Making that forever ending bucket list. I love sitting around the fire talking about everyones bucket list.There are always some many things that people want to try and add to their own lists.

Here are a few things I would like to cross off my list:

1. Sky Diving – I love the adrenaline rush!

2. Backpack around the world

3. Learn how to surf

4. Get a tattoo

5. Adopt a child

6. Learn a different language

7. Own a Chanel bag

8. Snowboard in Whistler

What is on your bucket list?

Wine and Sangria

I just discovered my new favourite wine – Blue Nun, Rivaner Riesling, a friend had given me a bottle for my birthday and am officially addicted. It is made in Germany; is not too sweet and not too dry = a must try!

If you have not tried it make sure to grab yourself a bottle next time you are at the LCBO and while your at it stop by the grocery store and pick up from fresh fruits. Sangria has got to be one of my favourite summer drinks; add some strawberries, blueberries, peaches and oranges and a pitcher of wine and you have a ladies night right in front of you!

When is enough…

Here are some helpful tips

1. Make sure you act right away!

2. Have a cool shower and then apply Aloe or some type of moisturizer repeatedly – will help reduce peeling

Note: Do not pick, peel, scrub or scratch!

3. Keep hydrated – drink lots of water

4. Take some Advil – helps reduce pain, swelling and redness

FRIDAY… WHERE ARE YOU?

THE WEEKEND  aka days off – struggling to get by during the work week, day dreaming about what the weekend will bring!

Counting down the days, hours and minutes until the clock strikes 5pm on that glorious Friday afternoon!

(I know this post doesn’t really go along with my blogs theme but I thought I would share it anyways)

Last Sunday we finally had some amazing weather and I decided to take full advantage and spent the day at  Christie Lake Conservation Area in Hamilton, Ontario. Once we arrived we noticed there was an event going on, Paddlefest.

“MEC Paddlefest is an urban celebration of all things paddlesport related. Whether you’re a beginner who’s never been in a boat, or an expert paddler looking to fine-tune your skills, there are plenty of learning opportunities both on water, and on land.”

You had the opportunity to learn the history of the board, test and try out the paddle boards and then if you were really eager they had yoga classes in the middle of the lake on a paddle board!

It was definitely a bonus to my Sunday afternoon and I high recommend you to try it out if you have the opportunity!

Hair for the Summer

Great summer hair styles!

-Fashion101-

The hot weather is finally  here!! YESS we may all say!

Even though I love the weather, my hair doesn’t love it that much.

It gets in the way, and it makes me feel hot sometimes.

I’m sure it happens to all of us; well except for the guys. LUCKY you boys you don’t get to suffer that much!!!:)

When summer gets here I like to wear my hair up, or wavy so it doesn’t frizz up.

image-2What I really love about these styles is that it goes well with long, and short hair, so ladies don’t be afraid to experiment with your hair this summer. Whether is up or down make sure you feel sexy:)
