Self Tanner vs. Jen: Volume 1

Last night I did something.  I succumbed to my sanity and tried self tanner.  Some would ask "Why?" and all I can tell you is, I blame YouTube and beauty influencers with long tanned legs. You see, it started with tan lines on my stomach. Since having kids my stomach hasn't seen the light of day, and it legit startles me every time I take a shower and have to face myself in the mirror. I figured a self tanner would help solve that problem and I set out for product reviews, DIY strategies, and tips and tricks. Which then led me to YouTube. Which then led me to Instagram. Which then led me to hashtags. Which then led me to realize Jergens is still around and hey, a newish (to me at least) product: foam! I could have gone for the gradual self tan lotion that Jergens is so famous for, but no, I went straight for the big guns. If you're gonna do something, you have to be all in. No "gradual tan" BS I told myself. So a few nights ago, I tested the self tanner on m

Camping Bucket List 2020


If someone would have told me 20 years ago, that I would end up being a camper, I wouldn't have believed it. My family (mom and dad) are not really outdoorsy people, we didn't go on family hikes or ski trips, or day trips to the lake. And I never wore running shoes as part of an outfit until I was living away at college and let's face it, was just too lazy to wear my platform Mary-Janes to class (yes I know, I'm totally dating myself here).

But now, fast-forward to being an adult (gasp!) and having a family of my own, I've learned to embrace the outdoors. My kids are BUSY, and that meant when they were really young, spending time outside rain or shine. And as they've gotten older, and they're easier to travel with, we have plunged ourselves knee-deep into camping.

We tried tent camping once - epic fail. And it took several years later to finally try again, although this time, we splurged for a trailer. First, a pop-up tent trailer, which we loved but quickly realized we needed something bigger. Now we have a hybrid trailer which is the best of both worlds. Sleeping in tent end beds, but we have a kitchen and bathroom too which is so helpful.

We've visited quite a few private and provincial campgrounds in Ontario the past few summers and we're gearing up to take the trailer out again this year - if this pandemic ever ends!

This summer, if we can break out of this quarantine/self-isolation era we currently live in, I'd like to visit the following places:


We camped here a few years ago, and have always wanted to go back. This year we have tentative plans to visit the park again in August with a few other families. Cross your fingers for us!


Other places I want to visit (will be our first time):


What are you travel or camping plans this summer?
