Muskoka & Updates

Hello! This is a chatty travel and update post because it's been a while since I've been on here.

Two weeks ago, I went on holiday in Muskoka, which is a popular vacation area in Ontario. It is also called "cottage country" because lots of people who live in Toronto have cottages in Muskoka, or vacation there to take a break from city life and enjoy the beautiful Canadian countryside. It's absolutely gorgeous and picturesque, with sparkling lakes, beaches, golf clubs, and hiking trails. I stayed in a lakeside cabin with my boyfriend and two other friends, and had a lovely time relaxing at the beach and hiking. One of the main reasons I love coming to Muskoka is because everyone is so incredibly nice and friendly. Every day I went on a run by the lake, and every single person I passed by would greet me with a "Good morning!" or "Hey how are ya?". Now, that's something that never happens in Montreal!

Unfortunately, my boyfriend got an ear infection in both ears, and we had to leave a day early! We rushed back to Montreal and went straight to ER where he was prescribed antibiotics. However, they forgot to prescribe him pain meds and the pain was so bad that we had to go back to ER at 4 in the morning. The following few days were a blur because I hardly slept and was helping take care of my boyfriend. I also didn't have my laptop with me, so I couldn't do any blogging. I had scheduled a post to go up on Wednesday July 27 while I was on holiday, but annoyingly, it didn't go up! (it is a review of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, which I will put up this week instead)

Now I am back in my home with my laptop and my makeup and I'm happy to blog again... but I am heading to New York City next week, which I'm very excited about! I was hoping to be able to go to the Bite Beauty Lip Lab and make my own lipstick, but alas! It is completely booked. Womp-womp. I still have some cool activities planned and I'll be sure to put up a post about New York once I've returned.
