beach weatha'.

Probably my favourite part about living in the Bay of Quinte area is having beaches, like Sandbanks in Prince Edward County, just a little drive away! It is not the Atlantic, but it helps to fill that void of missing the ocean and my home province a little bit.

Elexis and I share the non-traditional work schedule and hit the beach late on a Wednesday morning. With our pups excited to be able to enjoy some water time (Reeses is a water fiend!), snacks at the ready (which got covered in sand by an excited Reeses, haha!), and the sun in our eyes, we enjoyed a quiet a beach day. 

If you get the chance to visit Sandbanks Provincial Park or even just take a drive through, do it! 

Question: Are you a beach person, a woods person or a city person?

There are currently 5 days of April remaining but I never want it to end! I have loved this month SO much! But, before it leaves us for another year, I wanted to share the rest of the photos and the other two outfits from mine and Elexis's "friendship shoot"!

Still, this is my favourite thing that happened this entire month and I am looking forward to doing more (maybe even some for other people?!? - Hi, I take photos!). It was such a fun and hilarious experience - and a pretty exhausting one to photograph myself (but totally worth it!). I felt like I was back in middle school with one of my best friends, acting goofy and trying to match. Those were the days!

Shoot me a message if you are wanting a friendship shoot of your own -  I am looking at you 2018 grads!

Tank tops and Mom jeans: American Eagle.

Floral Jumpsuit: American Eagle (are you noticing a trend?)

I have never been one to go to a spa. It is something that comes to my mind every once in a while, but I never go - that is, until I heard about Bloomfield Beauty Co.

This perfect little spot is in my favourite little town, Bloomfield, in Prince Edward County. They only just opened this January and have been killing it, to say the least! Once I discovered their Instagram, I HAD to go - and my birthday was the perfect excuse to try them out! 

The photos that I have seen are beautiful, but this is really a place that exceeds the already high expectations you will have once you walk through the doors. It's crisp, it's clean, it's organized, and the interior design choices are just checking all of the boxes. It's just so dreamy!

I started out small with just getting my nails done. I wanted to get a feel for the place and see what else they have to offer. But let me tell you, they go all out for your nails. Now, maybe it is because I don't really get mine done too often, but I have gone to a nail salon, and never have I had the amazing treatment that I had at Bloomfield Beauty Co.! My esthetician was so kind, friendly, funny, and answered every question I had - sorry for all the questions, Brittany!! 

So, if you are looking for an afternoon of pampering, relaxation, and good conversation, you need to get to Bloomfield Beauty Co.!

young (ish), (sorta) wild, and free (like a bird).

Friendship sessions are ALL I can think about now!

My bestie here, Elexis, suggested that we do a 'friend shoot' and wear matching outfits! She supplied one (as a super sweet birthday gift!), we each picked the same jumpsuit, and I said to bring just an extra outfit. Surprisingly, we both brought a similar 'feel' look. They each showcased our free, wild, and weird spirits! 

Though I don't have a remote for my camera - which means I had to run back and forth to focus and set the timer - this was one of the funnest days I have had in a long time! It was such an awesome idea by Elexis and I want to do more like yesterday!

So, if you're in the area and interested in a friend session, shoot me a message and we can chat about it!!

27 - i'm in heaven.

Rhyming is also my jam.

I just wanted to pop on here quickly and thank EVERYONE who made my 27th birthday the best one yet! I have never felt more loved and appreciated by friends than I did this past week. Making friends as an adult has been a journey, but I have finally found the perfect group of friends who are extremely selfless and there for you when you need help. 

I love you all so much (people reading, family,  and my amazing, beautiful, strong, hilarious friends)!

And special thank you to Elexis for the most beautiful cake that I have even been given! :D

little bluff with little fluffs.

I love my friends. 

I have always been somewhat of a hermit. Or someone who only likes to spend time with one friend. People can be a little overwhelming for me.

Moving to Ontario has been a huge change both geographically and socially for me. It is scary to break out of your shell and it's not always an easy task. I used to get extremely anxious doing anything with a group of people. But we have been so fortunate to meet some of the most generous, funny, and caring people ever! The old Charlotte would probably have passed on a "girl's day" because she liked to use her husband as a security blanket and would never want to do anything without him. But a girl's day is just what I needed! 

I have so much love and respect for the women. They are amazing beings with a great sense of humour and are always up for an adventure. 

And the fact that they all love dogs and (will very soon) all own dogs makes them even more amazing! :D
