Sometimes the best captures come from the iPhone!  That being said, I'd also like to go back in time, Marty McFly styles, and re-live this vacation.  Two weeks in paradise was exactly what the doctor ordered, I'm so thankful to my parents for bringing us on their anniversary trip.

We've been to Hawaii many times, but we all absolutely fell in love with Kauai.  I'll be sharing our recommendations soon, but these photos give you a glimpse at the beauty that is the island of Kauai! xo

I spent the ENTIRE day yesterday cleaning out my closet (cue my lame, dad joke worthy rendition of Eminem's Cleanin out My Closet) and let me tell you, it was my Everest.  At one point I was sitting in a sea of shoes, staring over at a queen size bed covered by a mound of clothes that needed sorting and I thought about running away forever.  I, as you can imagine, persevered and can now boast a large assortment of goods that need to be sold (I'm looking at you, kids) and a totally organized wardrobe.  My suitcase is finally totally unpacked and I swapped all my summer clothes for those winter sweaters and scarves.  Which, is always like shopping your own stuff. "Oh wow, forgot about this" moments were happening at every turn.  There were a couple try ons, but mostly, I was just gross and dusty.  Point being, I had to take my white trousers out for one last spin post-Labour Day before they were shoved into a bin for 8 months without the light of day.  I really adore the idea of standing out amongst all the dark greys and black hues with this combination of light neutrals.  Plus, these new Miz Mooz booties are just everything.

On another note, I must also give a quick shoutout to my friend Jen, who launched a heart print to help raise money for breast cancer awareness month.  The prints are just $20 and 100% of the proceeds go to The Breast Cancer Society of Canada.  More info and how to purchase are here!

It has been a noticeably strange couple of weeks since being back in Vancouver.  There was a completely devastating tragedy, a bunch of messy work things, missed connections, weird interactions, and a lingering unsettled feeling.  Then, my friend Randa tells me all about Mercury Retrograde and it explains everythinggggg.   I am so excited for this nonsense to be over and for things to go back to normal-ish!  Fingers crossed for a relatively slow paced and easy going weekend.  There's a lazy Sunday calling my name for sure!

VLOG October Beauty Favourites

Whhhhhhat?!   A video blog?  This is the 90's.  No seriously, I have been wanting to do these for years and never had the right equipment (even though I did end up just shooting this on the computer instead of with my DSLR - whateverrrr it was like 8 pm at the office and I wanted to go home).  It's short and sweet and impromptu, but I hope you like it!

OH, and if you plan to enter the mentioned giveaway, you only have today to enter! xo
