Highs and Lows

1 {I have been wanting to swim in a pool with a pretzel blow up all summer (weird, I know), and finally got to earlier this week!}

My Birthday is this Monday, and for the last 5 years they have always been bitter-sweet. This is because we always pack up our things and head back to Toronto the day after. I was lucky enough the to spend the entire summer at home for the last 4 years, but this year it was for only 3 weeks, and they have flown by. I spent so much time this week by the water  whether it was the ocean, pool or lake. It made me feel extremely relaxed and peaceful, but I am still not ready to leave! Have a great weekend everyone, see you Monday!

Those Summer Nights


Although the summer is winding down, I am not ready for it to leave just yet. Because I am home in Nova Scotia until Tuesday, I am trying to take as much advantage of the beach as possible. I was so happy when Triangl Swimwear contacted me and asked if they could send me a bikini after seeing this picture on my Instagram feed. I love the way their bikinis fit and am completely obsessed with the styles and colours they have to offer! The other evening was so perfect to shoot this almost rose gold metallic bikini. The sun was setting it looked absolutely stunning when it hit the suns rays, and my sister captured it beautifully. I just hope to be able to squeeze in a few more days at the beach in this bikini before heading back to Toronto.
