Paris a la Pinterest, deux

In my last Paris Pinterest post, I realized I've only ever pinned pictures of the Eiffel Tower. While that's like, my favourite thing, it doesn't make for a very wholesome trip lol

Here are all the other things I'm looking forward to!

Breakfast like this...

Love Lock Bridge
 I have my lock ready! I know, it's kind of become a hazard. I don't care if they remove it later.

The gardens
Jardin de Luxembourg


The Louvre

These streets

These bridges



Notre Dame

Arc de Triomphe & Champs-Élysées

Bike tour

So excited I can't even tell you!

More suggestions welcome!

All pins are from my pinterest board: Paris is Always a Good Idea

Summer Byes

Yesterday I posted Mike's fabulous CNE ride mashup video - it's awesome, watch it!

We also took some pictures last Friday at the CNE, which ended up being like the perfect day/night!

View from the gondola

Our CNE winning collection keeps growing. Everything but the 2 normal giraffes are from this year...

On Saturday we were off to Niagara to visit my fam for a couple of days. More beautiful weather - just in time for September...whomp.

Obviously, the best thing to do there is hit up Niagara on the Lake for some beautiful views.
Triplets :)

I just realized how ridiculously frumpy I look in these pics but whatever...

Obligatory selfie :)
We also brought Mr Koko because he hadn't seen his sister in a long time. He took this opportunity to climb up on everything.

Mila though, is an even bigger shit disturber, as she's now an outdoor cat.

Koko was happy with the visit - he's my absolute fave when he's smiley :)

Sunday was way too summer hot so we hit up the bike path along the lake. Which was packed with people trying to catch the air show. To be honest, the air show was nothing special and it was almost impossible to get a pic because those planes are so damn fast! But I managed ;)

And that's the end of summer fun! Bring on fall, my fave season!

Did you do anything to see summer off for the Labour Day weekend?

Summer Ridin'

Last weekend we finally got summer weather around here. In case you don't own a calendar, last weekend was Labour Day...but I digress.

Among other things, we kept to tradition and hit up the CNE aka the Canadian National Exhibition aka The Ex aka a huge two-week carnival/midway on Friday.

This year we brought the GoPro! Warning - some of the shots look as shaky as the rides felt.

Review: August ipsy Glambag

This month's glambag wasn't the best but it also wasn't the worst. Some really great items that made up for the less good ones.

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Refiner
I've used this a couple of times and while it's good, I don't see a big difference between this and the benefit porefessional that I normally use. But it's a perfect item to keep in my makeup case for on-the-go and/or vacation.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
I used it once, and it was AMAZING! The sample tube is tiny so I plan on using this only for ultra special occasions only. Like my wedding...LOL

J. Cat Beauty Flying Solo Eye Shadow in Half Naked
Yes, another eye shadow. I don't think I need to tell you how little I use eye shadow and that this is the third (or forth?) time I've received one. Hopefully I stop getting them soon. However I did try it once and the colour is nice, not too bold, and goes on lightly allowing you to layer. What I really like is that there's a teeny tiny brush under the shadow making it perfect for bringing along.

Jersey Shore Sun Mongongo Lip Conditioner
I really didn't care for this lip balm. There's nothing special about it and I didn't care for the flavour. But I'm always misplacing lip balms (and nail files!) so this is an emergency one for the car.

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk
I have not tried this yet but that's b/c I'm saving this perfectly-sized dry shampoo for vacation. I have no doubts that I'll love b/c I've read nothing but fabulous reviews. I will let you know otherwise!

In My Head

This is my brain on a daily basis

This is why it wants to explode on a daily basis.

How do you guys stay sane?!
Besides to do lists...I have like, four.
