Lately Vol. 17

posted on: Monday, June 15, 2015

I haven't done a Lately post in a while, so I thought it was a good time to do a quick round up of what I have been up to. I planned to post more regularly on the blog after finishing my internship, but I ended up decided that what I really needed was some time to finish my last couple assignments, relax, and recharge after an intensely busy year. 

I completed my last class of my masters degree last weekend, and next weekend I officially graduate! It feels so surreal to be completing this chapter of my life, but I am so excited for what's coming next! The photos above with the flowers and the cakes are from my last day of class celebration, which was a great day. The sun was shining and my classmates and I had a BBQ to celebrate. Even though I am thrilled to be done Saturday classes, I am truly going to miss seeing my amazing friends from my program on a weekly basis. 

One of the things I have been doing with my new free time is getting back into fitness and being active.  Before starting my masters I got into running, but as school picked up I had to take a step back. I recently started back with running and I've also been getting into biking, but my new favourite activity is hiking in the mountains. I also want to try paddle boarding this year. I absolutely love being outdoors in the summer and this year I want to spend as much time as I can outside. 

I haven't done a monthly favourites makeup post in quite a while either, so I thought I would do a quick update in this lately post as well. Basically I have been loving the L'Oreal Infaliable Pro-Matte 24hr Foundation and having been mixing it with the Laura Mercier Radiant Bronzing Primer. I have also been loving the Clarins Aquatic Treasures Summer Bronzer, and the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerize eyeshadow pot in Jean (See my review here).  I'm also having a thing for purple and grey-purple nail polishes lately. I'm thinking of doing a round up of my favourites in an upcoming post. 

So that's the update! 
What have you been up to lately?
