Natural + Non-Toxic Skincare Favourites PART 1

Natural + Non-Toxic Skincare Favourites

Did I film this natural + non-toxic skincare favourites video in September? While I most certainly did! Is it still relevant today? Because I am absurdly obsessive over skincare, it’s still applicable! In fact, I am still currently using some of the products as you read this. Join me while I deep dive into my skincare favourites. Part two will be an update on the products I’ve finished, still using, replaced, or would by again. So get ready for that wild ride! With that said, keep scrolling for my YouTube video and shots of all the dope products.

Abbotsford Tulip Festival

Perhaps it was fate that I never got around to posting this last year? Now we can all vicariously enjoy the Abbotsford Tulip Festival from the comfort of our own homes. I certainly won’t be in attendance this Easter Sunday like I was in 2019. It was very cool to experience but at this point, I believe these photographs do the event (and my outfit) justice.

Abbotsford Tulip Festival

If you’re reading this and COVID-19 is a thing of the past, here’s my Abbotsford BC Travel Guide and Harrison Hot Springs Travel Guides. They even include a travel vlog too which could be an amusing way to pass time. Peep my YouTube Channel for more videos.

Oh hello there! Here’s another dispatch from solitary confinement, I mean self-isolation. I’m not totally alone though, I luckily have Chloe the cat and Jesse to keep me company during this difficult time. One of which makes a guest appearance on this video! I’ll let you guess who. Here’s my Full Face of Fenty video finally! I’ve been enjoying the Gloss Bombs and Killawat Highlighters for a while so I thought it was time to dive into the rest of the products.

Hideout Distro

Hideout Distro

Hideout Distro

Hideout Distro is a magical shop located on Edmonton’s bustling and eclectic 124th street in Edmonton. It was formerly located in Vacancy Hall (you can see that old location in my past post here.) Tory Culen, the owner wanted to create a space that promoted other independent designers and thus the shop came to exist.

The store is stacked full of both local and international talent from prints, patches, pins, jewelry, fragrances, pottery, leather goods, t shirts, and records. There’s also an epic vintage section. With its clubhouse like feel, it’s easy to wander down 124th street from Duchess Bakery for a coffee and go curl up in Tory’s vintage sectional couch for the duration of the afternoon. It’s cozy and welcoming. While that dreamy scenario isn’t an option right now due to self-isolation, Hideout is still open virtually on their website as well as offering local deliveries!

You can find Hideout Distro at:

12407 108 Ave NW
Edmonton, AB
T5M 4G6

HOURS
currently only online + deliveries

Phoenix Art Museum

Phoenix Art Museum

Phoenix Art Museum

Editing these photos made me incredibly nostalgic for being able to move about freely in the world. How amazing are art museums? I’ve always appreciated these spaces but now I feel even more starved for art than ever before. I might even dig out my old art history textbook from my university days just to soak it all in. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting the Phoenix Art Museum twice now and both times it has not disappointed me. Its main collection is vast and captivating as are the travelling exhibitions. Did I mention the building is dope too? The cacti landscaping outside always draws me straight to the front door. Here’s some shots from my last visit.

OUTFIT DETAILS

BAILEY’S OF HOLLYWOOD black hat – c/o (similar here)
ALDO  earrings (old) – c/o (similar here)
RAY BAN aviator sunglasses – c/o Shopbop
THRIFTED silk blazer (my mom found this for me!)
ARITZIA  babaton sculpt knit tank – I bought at Aritzia
LEVIS  mile high skinny jeans I bought at Aritzia
ALDO  white Drerissa Boots – c/o

Phoenix Art Museum

If ever you find yourself in the area, the Phoenix Art Museum is not to be missed! Once the world is back to normal, keep this spot in mind for your next trip. The art here needs to be appreciated over and over and over again.
