Hi guys! 

This seems like a very well-received type of post to do, so I figured today I would share with you guys some of my current favourites. Beauty, beverages, lifestyle, books and everything in between. I have a lot of favourites, so I’ll try not to make this too long! Let’s get into it..

I have these sunglasses in the Black Fade style. I’m OBSESSED to say the least. I like that they are dark enough to shade out the sun, and they also cover me up when I don’t feel like wearing makeup but have things to do.

I’m a red wine lover. It’s my drink of choice. Although I love wine and have an extensive background working in restaurants, I STILL SUCK AT WINE TASTING AND GETTING ‘HINTS OF CHOCOLATE’ (for example). Red wine tastes like red wine. That being said, some are better than others, and this has been my GO-TO wine lately. It is definitely a medium-full body wine that is quite dry. It claims to have fruity flavours of blackberry, strawberry jam, and vanilla followed by a lengthy, spicy finish. Anywho, IT’S AMAZING. Plus, the bottles are really neat too.

It’s no secret that I love my cold brew. I’ve tried a few before, and was never a fan, until my Mom picked up this stuff. It is pretty strong, but has so much flavour. I usually just pour it over ice and add a splash of almond milk. Best at home cold brew I’ve tried yet!

A nice, nude lipgloss that IS NOT STICKY! I normally just wear a lip liner with this over top and it looks great. It’s also only $6 so you really can’t go wrong.

There’s something about plants in a room that is so comforting. With my schedule, I know I don’t have time to keep plants alive. I picked up a few fake succulents at Home Sense the other day and I’m IN LOVE with them.

This is the best hydrating lotion I’ve ever used. Not only is it super silky and comfortable, but it also smells amazing. I buy it at my favourite spa, Ste. Anne’s Spa, however you can purchase it online here. The scents are bergamot, patchouli and lemon verbena. LOVE!

I recently started a bullet journal to track habits, spending, and meal prep. I like this journal because it looks neat and is small enough to fit in my purse. The dotted template really gives you the creativity to make your journal your very own! For more tips on how to bullet journal, check out my favourite blogger here. 

THE DRINK OF THE SUMMER! This is my go-to pool side drink of choice. Nutrl is a new beverage that is always sold out in LCBO. It’s popular, so make sure you stock up if you want to try it out. It is a lemon flavoured, natural vodka soda. I’m not a fan of sweet drinks, so I really appreciate the simplicity of a drink like this. It is very refreshing as well.

This is the BEST book I’ve read in a very long time. I love to read all thrillers, however this one was one of a kind. I literally read it in less than a week because I just couldn’t stop turning the page. It is also being made into a film, which will be released in 2019! If you like thriller novels, I highly recommend giving this book a read.

My favourite series on Netflix by far. Without giving away too much, it is the story of a con-artist who marries people and then takes off with their money. A lot more happens along the way, but I’ll let you figure that out for yourself. Season one and two are on Netflix, so give it a watch.

Well guys that’s it for this post! Please let me know down below if you would like to see this type of post moving forward! I also am very interested in your recommendations, especially Netflix! I need a new binge-worthy series to watch! Let me know down below in the comments! As always, have an excellent week!
