I do love a good staycation, as youâ€™ve read about in my previous city guides on Port Credit and Burlington. Itâ€™s been a little while since my last GTA staycation guide. This post is a special one, as I have I teamed up with Visit Oakville to showcase some of Oakvilleâ€™s hidden gems.
Did you know that I actually lived in Oakville?
…For about seven months during the school year during my post-grad at Sheridan. Funnily enough, Â I never really took the time to explore what great things this town has.
I think that late summer is such a great time to go because there are so many events going on! Oakville is a pretty chill city, and a great one for a little summer escape away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, but it still has plenty of things to offer.
Venturing to far-away lands can sometimes be time-consuming and expensive â€“ why not take a staycation? Today, weâ€™re looking into some of the best spots to stay, eat, and visit around the Oakville and Bronte area.
As you may have seen me complaining on Twitter and Instagram… I have a lot of hair. I mean, a lot. My hair dresser once told me I had the hair of 5 people (to which I morbidly joked “Yes, I absorbed 4 of my siblings in the womb.”) The point is, I go through hair care products like it’s my job, especially shampoo and conditioner.
Today, let’s take a look through some of my tried and tested favourite hair care products!
Hello lovelies! Iâ€™m a huge fan of Disney movies â€“ most recently Iâ€™ve developed a small obsession with the new live action Beauty and the Beast film (Iâ€™ve seen it 4 times!) But of course, I also love the classic cartoons as well, Minnie is one of my favourite characters. The Face Shop partnered up with Disney for their latest collection featuring Mickey Mouse, which Iâ€™m super excited to show you today. It includes lip tints, a palette, mascara, and eyeliner!
I finally got my hands on some Glossier bits! I’ve heard some of my favourite beauty bloggers rant and rave about the magic of Glossier for ages. It’s simple, it makes your skin look amazing, the packaging cute…. etc etc etc. The idea of a basic, no-frills products stood out to me, and I wanted to try it out for myself.
As if I needed any more makeup… however, I reasoned with myself because Glossier prides their products on the notion of â€śskincare first, makeup second,â€ť which really aligns with my approach to beauty products!
It’s the summer time, and that means…weekend getaways! In my last staycation post, we looked at prime spots around Port Credit (read here). Continuing with my series of staycation spots within the GTA, we’re traveling down to Burlington. Burlington is another lakeside town sandwiched between Oakville and Hamilton. I haven’t visited since I was a kid, so I thought it would be nice to bring my parents down with me for the weekend.
