We recently went on a little weekend getaway to the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia, and I thought it would be fun to share what organic and natural makeup, skincare, and body care products I brought along.
I wish I could have taken more photos while we were away, but since I was driving it just wasn’t possible. Next time, and if my husband is driving I will definitely try and share more. If you ever plan on travelling to Canada, I highly recommend Nova Scotia as a travel destination. Having been all across Canada, it’s easily one of my favourite provinces. The Cape Breton Highlands are breathe taking, and the Annapolis Valley will always have a special place in my heart. It’s where Jay (my husband) and I first met. He’s actually from the Valley originally, although we now live in New Brunswick. I lived in the Valley for a few years when I was in college, and we often go back to visit family and friends.
Since we were only going to be spending a couple of days, I packed relatively minimal with some of my favourite products. Be sure and watch the video to see what I brought – I think the only thing I need to mention is that I actually ended up taking the Ultimate Nudes Eyeshadow Palette, that I’m seriously obsessed with – more on that later this week!
Here’s a list of everything I brought.

In the middle of filming, I had a nice surprise! My mail lady delivered my recent Beautycounter order. I have been testing a bunch of their products, and will eventually share all of the ones I think are worth the splurge, and which ones I would pass on. (Spoiler, I am obsessed with the eyeshadow palette already!) Here’s a list of everything I ordered.
