Postcard from Canada

Vintage hat, Delia's shirt, Target shorts & necklace, Franco Sarto shoes, Essie nail polish
Canada, eh?
This lovely bay in Tadoussac, at the confluents of the Saint Laurence and Saguenay rives, greeted my family and me after a 7 minute bumpy car ride off the main road. It's shocking how nordic the scenery looks in certain parts of Canada. The air here is so pure.  Little fishermen homes, Midwestern style brick and stone houses and even Normandy-like architecture is everywhere. 
I didn't bring any make-up on this two week trip. By "make-up" I mean, my beloved BB Cream I use when needed. The only cosmetic (if it counts) is a silky face wash to get rid of all the sunscreen. It's great to feel 100% organic. 

Le Canada, eh?
Après 7 minutes d'un trajet cahoteux en voiture, ma famille et moi avons trouvé cette belle baie à Tadoussac, aux confluents des fleuves Saint Laurent et Saguenay. C'est incroyable comment le paysage est nordique ici. L'air est très pur. Il y a de petites maisons de pêcheurs, des maisons en briques et en pierres, comme dans le Midwest, et quelques maisons qui ressemblent à celles de Normandie.
Je n'ai pas apporté de maquillage pour ces vacances de deux semaines. Quand je dis "maquillage", je parle de ma crème BB adorée que je n'utilise que quand j'en ai besoin. J'utilise un nettoyant de visage onctueux pour enlever toute la crème solaire et c'est tout. J'aime bien me sentir 100% naturelle.
