I Visited The World’s Largest Egg

I Visited The World’s Largest Egg

If there’s a small town festival happening, you better believe I’m driving out to it. That’s how I visited the world’s largest egg. In all truth, I’ve been to Vegreville a few times now but this was my first time to the Ukrainian Pysanka Festival. As a Ukrainian, it was only a matter of time before I checked out this festival. Join us on this trip and watch the video! If you’re interested in more small town festival coverage, might I suggest checking out my posts on the Smoky Lake Pumpkin Festival here and here.

Glowing Up with the NARS Endless Orgasm Palette

Glowing Up with the NARS Endless Orgasm Palette

Glowing Up with the NARS Endless Orgasm Palette

This might be the glowiest I’ve ever been in my entire life. Is that an exaggeration? Absolutely not. Join me on my journey glowing up with the NARS Endless Orgasm palette. It launched this spring and I was skeptical when I discovered it was a cream palette. Turns out, it’s just what I needed to achieve maximum dewiness.

Full Face of Nude by Nature

Full Face of Nude by Nature

Full Face of Nude by Nature

In 2018 the Australian brand Nude By Nature first launched their cruelty-free all natural makeup line in drugstores across Canada. But they’ve been around since 2008! I’m all for more drugstore options, especially when the ingredients aren’t concerning. The only thing that is concerning is the lack of diversity in the shade range. There’s always room for improvement! With that said, check out my new video: Full Face of Nude by Nature (and a few other products because I didn’t have the full line) 😉

NUDE BY NATURE PRODUCTS

PERFECTING CONCEALER shade 01 Ivory – c/o (I hope they come out with a wider shade range)
RADIANT LOOSE POWDER FOUNDATION shade W2 Ivory – c/o (again shade range needs work)

SHEER GLOW COLOUR BALM shade 04 berry – c/o
MOISTURE SHINE LIPSTICK shade 05 pale coral – c/o

OTHER PRODUCTS USED

Fraser Valley BC Travel Vlog

Fraser Valley BC Travel Vlog

Fraser Valley BC Travel Vlog

I had such a swell time on my trip that I even made at Fraser Valley BC Travel Vlog to accompany my Abbotsford BC Travel Guide! It was a whirlwind trip filled with fresh blooms a la the annual Abbotsford Tulip Festival, delicious food, and curious sightings. We had a major Twin Peaks moment too! A mysterious man had a face tattooed on the back of his head (more on that in the vlog!) We also spent a couple days in Sasquatch country which was a lifelong dream come true. There’s even a museum devoted to the elusive sasquatch! 

Other Travel Posts

If my Fraser Valley BC Travel Vlog hasn’t sated the desire for travel content, feel free to check out the travel section of my blog. Or even head to my YouTube Channel for more travel vlogs. Exploring offbeat travel destinations is one of my specialities. Especially if it involves an oddity I’ve discovered firsthand or from Atlas Obscura! With that said, I’m slowly making my way through the 411 oddities available in Canada alone!

BFF Makeup Party

BFF Makeup Party

BFF Makeup Party

Q: What’s better than a makeup tutorial with just me? A: a BFF Makeup party with my pal of 17 years, Cecily! Join us as we discuss beauty practices we don’t get (hello contouring + baking!?) As well as what we had for breakfast (v interesting). This video is a real testament to our enduring friendship and I’m glad we were finally able to create something like this together. Our friendship blossomed from our mutual love of cosmetics. A makeup video seems like an appropriate celebration of such a friendship. In other words, check out a couple of gals who’s enthusiasm makes up for skill. 😉
