YOUTUBE


SO TODAY IS THE FUCKING DAY. I AM VENTURING INTO THE WORLD OF VIDEO AND HAVE LAUNCHED MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL!!!

I'm not even sure if I'm read for the shit show that will surely ensue from me being in front of a video camera, but I'm SO excited to share my life completely unfiltered with you guys!

If you're looking for cookie-cutter make-up tutorials or videos about how EFFING "FLAWLESS" my life is, you wont find that here, because, quote "I'm real" - Jenny From The Block

Leave me a comment and let me know what kind of videos you want to see.

TRAVEL WHEN YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO TRAVEL

SO you've got the travel bug, but your bank account wont let you leave the country...

Don't stress, I've got you covered with

4 PLACES ALL WITHIN 4 HOURS OF TORONTO THAT WILL (TEMPORARILY) SATISFY YOUR TRAVEL BUG FOR THE LAST WEEKEND OF SUMMER



1. HAMILTON - WEBSTER FALLS



I know, I know. Your initial reaction to seeing HAMILTON on this list is probably a big 'WTF?!' right? Well turns out Hamilton has some pretty big and beautiful waterfalls. If you only have the budget for a quick day trip, then Hamilton is for sure your best bet - it's only about an hour drive out of the city.

*Where to go: Webster Falls, Tews Falls (It's a bit of a hike to get to both - around 30/40 mins but definitely worth it)
*Where to eat: The French - If you want to feel EVEN MORE like you're on vaca, check out this French bistro that looks like it was just plucked out of Paris and dropped into Hamilton.

2. MILTON - TERRE BLEU LAVENDER FARM



Terre Bleu Lavender Farm in Milton is as close as you will get to a French countryside getaway without getting on a plane. Lavender is one of my favourite flowers and my favourite scent, so this place was HEAVEN to me.

*Where to go: Terre Bleu Lavender Farm
*Where to eat: Terre Bleu Lavender Farm - they've only got two things on the menu, but both are delicious - lavender lemonade and lavender ice cream!


3. TOBERMORY (BRUCE PENINSULA)


If you've never been to Thailand because the idea of 24 hour travel time makes you sick, then the 3.5 hour drive to BP is for you. I'd refer to BP as the poor man's Thailand, but that wouldn't be very nice, so instead I will refer to BP as Canada's own version of Thailand. You may have seen my photos from my recent trip up to BP (ya that time I tricked everyone into thinking that I went to Thailand for the day). BP is BEAUTIFUL - I have never seen clearer water (in Canada) or more gorgeous rock formations and caves (again, in Canada LOL). If you want to feel like you're somewhere tropical surrounded by beautiful water grottos then definitely check out BP for the day.

*Where to go: Bruce Peninsula, Flower Pot Island
*Where to eat: SLIM PICKINGS up at BP, don't expect anything fancy (mostly local diners and sports bars), I'd recommend bringing a picnic for the day!


4. PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY

(Photos from The Drake Devonshire, The June Motel)

If you like wine and aesthetically pleasing decor. PEC is the place for you. Although I have only been to PEC once when I was 15, I have been dying to go back. OBVIOUSLY since this is the only place on my list that I haven't been to recently, I can't give the most in-depth reviews about where to go and where to stay. HOPEFULLY I will get to go back before the impending DOOM of Canadian winter hits and experience PEC as an adult. For now I'll share with you guys all of the places that I am lusting over via Instagram.

*Where to stay: The Drake Devonshire, The June Motel (both of these places are an Instagrammer's DREAM - I have yet to stay at either of these places, but I have definitely spent time creeping their IG accounts plotting my getaway)
*Where to go: Sandbanks Provincial Park, Wineries (there's honestly too many to list), Lake on the Mountain
*Where to eat: The Drake Devonshire - I am currently accepting any reccos for more restaurants in PEC because 1. I have only ever eaten at the Drake (in Toronto) and 2. Like I said, the last time I was in PEC I was 15 LOL...
