EXPLORING VENICE

Travel

The best things to do in Venice, California!

I feel like Venice has a bad reputation. Or, just the wrong reputation. In my not-so-humble opinion. 😜 lolz

When you think of Venice, California, you probably think about the boardwalk, tacky t-shirts, hot dogs, and just straight-up weirdos. 😣That, ladies and germs, is NOT WHAT IS UP.

You can see that ridiculousness in about t – 5 minutes and then you will be good for life. I promise.

This vlog is all about the great side of Venice. The stuff you actually want and neeeeeed to see. Venice is the freakin’ best! It just tends to get a little misrepresented at times by the tourism industry.

So check out my vlog where my boyfriend and I explored Venice for the day. We went to some places we already know, and checked out some new spots as well. This vlog, covers everything you need to know about the best of Venice.

Oh yeah, and we got into a fight part way through the day hahaha. I included a bit about that. Because there is nothing worse than people pretending everything is peachy-keen when it’s not. Sometimes, while touristing, you have a little spat. It happens. Then you move on and get some prosecco. LOL! Watch the video, you’ll see what I’m talking about. 😉

Lifestyle

Dress: Missguided / Shoes: Timberland

This podcast is one of my favourites.

Today, I talk what it was like to move in with my boyfriend after only knowing each other for 5 months. 😱 Nuts, I know. 🌰

It was a pretty crazy risk for both of us, because this involved cross-country relocation, and I shared the whole dang this on Skinny Belle – The Podcast.

Some topics covered?

– A detailed outline of Troy (bae) and I’s story

– How the first 3 months of living together is going

– Some major #GirlProblems I am having living with a boy (hehe)

– Advice if you too are thinking of moving in with your boyfriend!

This episode is really fun, and easy to listen to. I love to listen to podcasts while I am working out or putting my makeup on. Just a little suggestion for listening 😋

Here are some pull quotes from this episode of Skinny Belle – The Podcast:

NATURAL GLAM TUTORIAL

Beauty

FINALLY!!! I filmed my favourite natural beauty glam 😊

Yes yes yes!!! I am sewwww happpehhhhh this is here. Took me a minute but girl finally filmed my classic Natural Beauty Glam tutorial.

I’ve worked with a number of makeup artists over my 9 year modeling career (literally, hundreds of them) and learned a thing or two in the process. So, it’s about time I share some of my best tips and tricks for glamming! 😁

Personally, I do love to try and use makeup to enhance my natural features, instead of cover them up and change how I look. That is why I am such a fan of this kind of glam! 💋 There’s a bunch of super useful tippity tips in this tutorial, so check it out and let me know what you think!

If you’re looking for the product list of everything I used in this video, I’ve linked it all on Skinny Belle Youtube below the tutorial.

This is one of my classic “Robyn” glams, that I do about 70% of the time. 😄 Hope you like the video! If you do, make sure you throw a thumbs up on that bad boy. 👍🏻

Hope you’re having a fab week! 💞

CHICAGO DEEP DISH PIZZA

Food

My mission to find the BEST deep dish pizza in Chicago!

This video is from a few weeks back in Chicago and I was a bit skeptical about publishing it. Only because it was literally so cold that night I only did a tiny bit of filming. I thought I might die from frostbite. Or hypothermia. Not joking at ALL. Girl did not have an appropriate coat for -12. ❄️

Now looking at the final result, I’m glad I decided to share it! 😄

BECAUSE….

This pizza was the best damn Chicago deep dish I’ve ever had. 🍕EVER. And I love pizza. Possibly more than life itself. 😂 (Kidding but not really kidding at all.)

So if you are in Chicago, and you fuck with caramelized crust deep dish pizza, make sure you visit Pequods. A little tippity tip is to do a table request online before you go. They don’t do full on reservations, because there is basically a permanent line at this place, but you can get “preference” if you request a table in advance. The couple before us was quoted a 2.5 hour wait time and our wait time was only 25 mins because we registered online first!

TOTALLY worth it. ✔️

There are very few things I will wait for in life. Food happens to be one of those things. 👌🏻

FEELS LIKE SUMMER

Outfits

Current summer inspo: Blue & Cream‘s dress collection

Last night, kind of felt like summer. KIND OF. A bit. Enough so that I pulled out a summer dress I bought for my yacht trip in Croatia last July. And, my favourite vintage Miu Miu sunnies. 😎 (Are they not to-die-for???)

A summer dress was kind of a stretch. Girl got a bit nippity tbh.

Regardless, the warmer weather these last few days in Santa Monica has made me very excited for spring/summer.

*Cue all my Canadian/European friends rolling their eyes in tandem.*

**Side note: I’ve become a massive baby  and acclimated to the California “winters”. In the mornings I shiver and huddle up in a dramatically large wool poncho. At night, I bitch about how cooooooooold it is. ***EYEROLL*** 😒 Oh how quickly one forgets what a Canadian winter is like. Guess that’s what moving to California does to a girl. 😜 💁🏼 #extra

In yesterday’s excitement of pulling out my summer dresses, girl got thinking about what my vibe is going to be this spring/summer. I knowww it’s a ways away…. but damn it I will be READY! 👍🏻

Later in the evening last night I was doing my usual routine of internet creeping everything imaginable (*ahem*), and found my way to Blue and Cream. Those guys know what is UP when it comes to fashion. I got so deep in the rabbit hole that is their online shop, that my cart was FILLED (when I say filled…. I mean FULL TO THE TOP. I don’t mess around.) with spring/summer pieces. Once I start shopping, kiiiind of hard to stop me. It’s like one purchase is a gateway drug to a series of other purchases with little to no regard for my bank balance. 👜

#ADULTING.

Anyways, here are a few of the Blue & Cream things I was peepin’ last night. (I’ve included some potential scenarios of me wearing these things. Something I do when I shop hahaha. Helps visualize. Visualize with me, people.)

Scenario 1) Me wearing this on a vacation I have yet to book. Hawaiiiii???

 

Scenario 2) OMG me just being casual going to the Sunday farmers market! So. Casual.

 

Scenario 3) The dress I’ll force my boyfriend to take my on a date so I can wear it.

JK this isn’t a potential scenario this is a regular occurrence in my life 😂

 

UHHHHHhhhhhGGGGGggggggggHHHHHHHHHHH!

Give it all to me, now. ALL OF IT! So much to choose from. Dying over here. I need  help!! Which should I get?? Comment, pls. <3

Also, anyone else already excited for summer? hehe… too soon?

 

xoxoxo,
