While I was trying to put together this blog post, I realized how few my pictures are from this cabin getaway. But, I'm taking it as a sign that I was enjoying this trip too much, capturing everything in digital photos was the least of my priorities. Talk about savouring the moment. 
Last week, my friends and I went on a quick overnight cabin trip to St. Laurent, Manitoba. During the day, we made our way to explore the beaches of Steep Rock and seeing the turquoise water was everything I envisioned it to be. Later in the night, it was all about sunsets, bonfires and endless stories with my friends. This trip gave me the recharge my body needed and was definitely a highlight of my summer.


I totally outdid myself last Friday discovering too many new things around downtown Winnipeg.
In no particular order, I recommend checking out the following:
* A new 'mural' behind the City Hall, just across from Chinatown - the floor is painted vibrant hues of pink, red and purple. Too pretty not to share!
* The Coal and Canary pop up shop at 73 Princess Street - my favourite local candle company has a storefront and it's everything I imagined it to be: pretty, pink and fabulous!
* Mur Lifestyle Studio at 70 Arthur Street - not a new spot but this well curated lifestyle store has a whole bunch of new home goods that I'm adding to my wish list. 
* Pop Cart has an UBE Bubble Tea popsicle - if you know ube, need I say more?
* Locally grown flowers from Prairie Blossom - I had to stop over these bouquets while at Alleyways Market. To know that they were grown locally made me even more in awe. 
* Cordova Tapas & Wine - a new spot for drinks, imported cheese, tapas and good times. I totally recommend their cheese platters.
* All the happenings at The Forks for the Canada Summer Games 2017 - As this year's host to the festivities, this place has been packed with tons of outdoor activities including markets, art installations and free concerts.


No elaborate blog or vlog post today but I've been lugging my camera everywhere taking snapshots of the province. Hope you enjoy snippets of my summer so far. Here's to August!
