The Queen always has the most marvellous birthday. Most Ontarians seem to happily head for the cottage, but after 20 years of the up north thing I love not cottaging (behave, you ribald Brits...) Instead, I did a number of fun things this week including a little road trip...
Love a little denim dress for travel. And my Longchamps travel bag...
Lovely tasting board at Taps, Niagara Falls
I've not been to Niagara Falls in a dog's age.
It's quite pretty, particularly in May when it's off season. The weather cooperated and it was warm and sunny for our little getaway.
I felt very lucky:
I was sans kids this weekend and so Sunday I went to the local Chanel counter to get some new makeup:
I picked up the Perfection Lumière Velvet foundation in Beige Rose. What a lovely makeup. So light and matte. Perfect for summer. I also picked up some powder and a lip pencil and a Mademoiselle lippy. How could I not have had this colour in my collection? So pretty!
I needed to take my hair a couple of shades darker and did so sitting beside a professional dominatrix. In Oakville! Will wonders never cease? The lowlights made the old colour brighter, which I liked.
We popped by a friend's pool opening party.
Love that the GLK has a built-in Pimm's Holder (fear not, it's sealed!)
I decided to try planting a vegetable garden for the first time ever. Why has no one ever told me what a fantastic workout gardening is? My legs feel like I did an 8-hour Barre class!
We had some friends who were at the party where we first met over for a drink and some nibbles.
First mover advantage gets you Black Forest Bakery macarons and the fancy cheese plate.
I watched a little Mystic Pizza.
And had a little brunch at the Dundas Street Grille with a pal.
I tried the fedora look for an Oakville meets Coachella vibe. Oakchella?
Hope you had a happy Vicky Day or are preparing for a lovely Memorial Day or Bank Holiday.
