First Holiday of Summer


So I’ve been trying to remain pretty consistent with my blog posts but it’s been hectic with work and my book so I thought I’d share my vacation photos up in Muskoka.

Rule one of cottaging up north is to bathe in bug spray at least once a day cause bugs up their are ridiculous!

This was a first for me to be cottaging so far up north and I will be honest that this is the Canada that most people envision, as in huge chunks of stone all over the place, incredible views and beautiful bodies of water. I couldn’t get enough of it!

Although the weather was sub-par on some days we did manage to get in gear and get on the water and it was so beautiful to soak in God’s creation!


We instantly wanted t try out the aesthetically pleasing kayaks which were too cute to pass up. We ended up kayaking all the way to the island in the distance and although it was exhausting it was totally worth it. The view was even better from there.

My cousin, my sister and I all made the effort to get up for a good sunrise and this was SO worth it. If you’re gonna do anything productive up north I’d highly recommend getting up for the sunrise. It was beautiful, and the water is actually warmer at this time!IMG_6450

We decided to take the also aesthetically pleasing paddle boards for our morning trip and I was a little nervous to take my phone along but it was so worth it.


So this trip was a family reunion and it was thoroughly enjoyed, however I did spend a day up with my friends camping in Kearney which I also highly recommend. I had an absolute blast even though the bugs were about 10X worse! IMG_6402I ended up going back up with my parents to spend some time with them and we took the boat out several times which I was happy about because Riley loves the boat and this is his last summer.IMG_6445He’s my bestfriend so when he’s happy then I am!

Anyway, if you haven’t already, I would highly recommend camping/cottaging in northern Canada, the views are unbelievable no matter where you go! Happy week everyone!




Now I’m sure you’re wondering what kind of title I’ve come up with, and I’ll be honest, I only just thought of this now. But this word describes how my weekends work. I relax, but I make the most of it. I still keep busy, but still busy with things I enjoy.


And since it was such a beautiful Saturday I did some of my favourite things. Which include getting dressed up – makeup and hair included – because I believe every good day starts with a good you!


I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I have a horrible habit of getting dressed up and partaking in the dirtiest activities. So naturally I find any excuse to see my furries! They were super snugly today so we got some fantastic shots!


I know some of you may be shocked at the grace of these animals and that is honestly my favourite part of my horses. They are gentle and kind, but still, have all the power to do anything they want. Their actions are always done with love and care. I couldn’t have asked for a better duo!


I’m going to end this post with my favourite shot from today. This is my girl Riot, I’ve had her since she was 3 and she is my best friend. I think she is the most beautiful girl in the world and she is just so full of love!

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and that my post inspires you to get out and enjoy this beautiful weather and make the most of this season!



Welcome to my first blog post,

I don’t particularly live a beautiful lifestyle, but I enjoy finding the beauty in things and helping others live beautifully as well. What I want to show to you all is my interests, and since I’m displaying many of them I hope that each and every one of you finds trinkets and treasures to collect from my own experiences.

The best way to lead a productive and healthy life is to be a go-getter. To do the jobs you need to do, and to see work as an opportunity for success. Because it’s better to enjoy the simplicity of your life rather than always wanting the next best thing, I am a strong believer in quality over quantity and you can apply this to every aspect of your life.

I hope I can help you to push your limits and be your best and most confident self!
