October is finally here and we are ready. Fall vibes are FULL ON and we can't wait to announce our Month Of soon! Get ready for a cozy, autumn colourful, and homey month.
A month full of road trip adventures, boat rides, mountain tops and coastlines. We are so grateful for all the people who have helped us make this month happen. We had so much fun adventuring around our city and exploring our own backyards. It doesn't take much to escape from our daily routine lives in a healthy way. Take a trip to the water, the mountains, the forest, a field, go for a walk, go for a run. "Escaping" doesn't necessarily mean jump full on into nature and go on a great adventure.
What we wanted to express this month is that "escaping" from your daily routine to take a few seconds to open your eyes. To see the things around you, and to be careful not to get too caught up. Whether this means taking a few extra minutes to slow down in your mornings, drink your coffee or tea while writing in your journal, taking time to read a good book, treating your body to a nice relaxing bath at the end of the day, going for a walk and allowing time to think and re-inspire. Perspective is so important, and we hope this month helped motivate you to take that extra time, big or small, to treat yourself to some inspiration. Just look around. Open your eyes. Remember you are special and you are loved.
Our first Month of Escape adventure was a trip to Grouse Mountain! Our good friend Alex took us on a tour of the mountain, took the chairlift to the viewing tower, ate some cinnamon elephant ears, and even saw some bears!

We spent a few days in Whistler!
We ended on the mountaintop riding the Peak 2 Peak, (Watch us be a bit too scared on the worlds largest gondola in our video below). We spent some time in Whistler Village, we dined, we hiked, and adventured through the trees!
Another highlight of our Month of Escape was our incredible weekend away with FP Me! Free People is an incredibly inspiring company, and the girls who took us on this trip were so talented and lovely. The scenic ferry ride to Half Moon Bay was gorgeous in itself, we couldn't believe how breathtaking the rest of our sights were! Hikes and kayak rides, yoga and dining, there was so much beauty all around!

All year round we are lovers of red lipstick, but especially come fall. We went through a collection of different reds and weeded out the orange/pink/bright toned colours and went for deeper, and richer reds. Here we show you how our favourite shades compare on our 3 different skin tones.
1. Chilli - M.A.C // Chilli is the perfect description for this colour. It is the colour of chilli powder how it sort of leans towards a brown and is ultra matte.
2. Diva - M.A.C // A nice matte burgundy, the ultimate fall colour.
3. Really Red - Revlon // Your totally classic true red lipstick. It's matte and stays on really well!
4. Lust for Life - Ilia // This burgundy is quite similar to Diva but has more of a gloss finish and is all natural, total plus!
5. Hot Passion - Covergirl // This is the most vibrant and bright shade of the 5 while still being a true red and not too orange. This lipstick is great coverage and will stay on all day, it's definitely the longest wearing lipstick we've found!
