GRWM on VACATION… LUXURY COTTAGE edition!!

Published by Darron Toy on



whew oh hello everyone as you can tell I am not currently in my normal location and that is because I am at a cottage every year my family and I on my in-law side rent a cottage for a week we went to a new cottage this year and it is absolutely stunning plus we all have bedrooms which is a feat when there's 12 of you and so I thought it'd be fun to do it get ready with me because every year we pick a day and we do family photos so everyone brings makeup and all of their supplies and everything for this one day because those are gonna be like a Christmas pictures in December we'll go outside we'll get ready I'll show you guys like a little bit of a little bit around the cottage and what we've been up to and I thought that would just be really fun bring you guys along on the cottage experience you know plus today's video so excited is sponsored by Dyson and you guys know how much I love Dyson today I'm going to be using the Dyson supersonic blow dryer if you guys remember if your og I did a video with the Dyson supersonic blow dryer when it first launched I think it was in 2016 now this is the Dyson supersonic blow dryer I've used it every single day at when I blow-dry my hair since then I use it on my daughter's hair and hence why I brought it to the cottage because it is literally the best in my personal opinion so we're gonna start go and blow dry my hair then go sit outside and do some makeup I hope you guys enjoyed this video and give it a big thumbs up if you do and make sure you subscribe so you don't miss out on new videos here every Thursday and Sunday again big thanks to Dyson for supporting this video and without further ado let's get into this okay so we're in the bathroom now clearly my hair is air dried a bit but it looks a lot drier than it actually is I have very fine hair but I have a lot of it so it'll dry naturally too like this very nice limp stormy mess and I have super oily hair too so blow-drying is must for me all the adjustments on the blow-dryer are on the back to adjust the heat and the air flow depending on your hair type I like medium heat and high airflow muscle personally and then I like to start without any attachments to the head of the nozzle first and hit my head over to maximize volume you'll notice this is a trend in a blow dryer my hair and I love that I can get this volume and not have to worry about for wrying my hair with extreme heat because the Dyson dryer this airflow a very consistent temperature so your hair stays healthy and shiny but it's still good law oh so now I will put on the smoothing nozzle you'll see it attaches with a magnet and it's not hot so you'll notice throughout the video that I will adjust it and move it depending on where I'm sort of blow-drying my hair what direction and it's not hot at all which is awesome so then I'll start flipping my hair kind of back and forth and kind of blow drying it in the opposite direction to where my hair would naturally lay so I can again build on that volume right this just needs to happen the smoothing nozzle is also really good for kind of smoothing out hence the name the top layers so they get nice and shiny on topic but I don't disrupt the rest of the hair I don't flatten out any of that volume either and now obviously I am extra I brought a dyson blow-dryer I also brought my Dyson v to the cottage but I didn't bring the air wrap curler which is now back in stock in Canada if you've been eyeing it oh also here's a sneaky trick for all of my oily hair to people out there I love using dry shampoo right after I blow dry my hair it almost acts like almost like a protectant to keep my hair from getting oily so quickly versus treating the oil after it's already there hey do you love that I don't like spritz it into my hair I just dump it into my palm because I used so much but now my hair is blow-dried so now under the makeup we also did campfire last night which is a lot of fun and I always think that I like s'mores more than I actually do don't I don't know why they I like I think they're so good and I want to love them so I keep eating them they're not as good as I think they are now on to concealer why I brought three concealers with me because you're extra I am extra extra who hasn't showered watch shower it seems inconsiderate to make someone do your hair it's a little bit like french fry grease that was my hair before I showered but then I shower head this is the Tarte double duty thanks grape smells like cucumbers Oh oh yeah no he's not at it right oh did you spray on your off it certainly did like that if you're in a helpless situation just mama mom bye bye we're gonna do some brows I don't why I'm doing brow and I haven't set my face yet but we're just gonna go with that I'm not a caught it so anyway we've been making s'mores and we have been going on paddle boats I think I think there's even like a paddle board here so many activities we actually have games I don't know if you can see some of the games behind me there's been some new ones which I have not tried yet but there's something about like a frisbee and you like throw it and then the other person has to smash it into a canister or something I think it started as like a garbage bin but it's been really nice to just relax I don't know if you guys know this about me but I don't relax very easily or very often so we've been down by the dock for a while and just hanging out down there there's like a big um floaty toy out there and like it's debating putting my makeup on on it feel like I've up if I'm eyebrows done the rest of my face doesn't really matter because brows you don't necessarily have to have like perfect everything makeup but if your brows look good do you guys have any like annual trips that you do or annual like tradition they have with your families let me know let me know in the comments now putting on a little lip balm this is glossy a by the way smells like mangoes well it's so good I'm gonna go into blush you use the flower Beauty blush balm and outside of the cottage we have been doing a lot of renovations as you guys know on our house lots of stuff going on currently it is the basement getting redone it was a completely unfinished basement and now we're finishing it and we're gonna have like a kid's playroom down there and an office for Chris and an extra bedroom things like that and and then right now while we're at the cottage they're demoing our master bathroom that should be interesting I'm probably gonna put up some before and after videos on those renovations and we'll process and everything on each of them on Rachel's life if you're interested I just forget how much more like brie oh your face looks that side versus inside getting all these like feet all those sparkles from my little makeup bag look it changes honestly I feel like the renovation that I'm most excited about is the kitchen Oh know what we're doing with it yet then still being decided we're changing over that countertops and changing the color of the cabinets and like doing a bunch of stuff so if you have any ideas or any like really pretty kitchens you want to send me on Instagram hit me up at me and some photos I love that stuff alright now on to bronzer gosh I forget to bring oh no I didn't offer a bronzer real life problems you know I think after the photos I think you want to go paddleboarding have you guys ever done paddleboarding before I went like years ago in LA not in LA but that side west side I haven't been in so long and it was so much fun I remember having the best time when I went and so I really want to try it again and see see if I could actually stand up I'm gonna be using some of the color pop you're pretty all these colors are blinding me it's gonna pop some of these neutral Browns into the crease of it kind of sloppy but you know what it works I feel like I can only kind of half see what I'm doing look how low I put that I swear I only had coffee and then of course of course I need highlight cuz that's the other thing that shows up really well in photos highlight so we're gonna be using the she loves Pixy layers highlighting palette and I am going to be using probably a mixture of lace and clutch on the inner corner a little bit you are extra at the cottage well we don't need to go gallop and a little clutch on the cheekbone maybe I'll throw in a little bit of t2 which is a bit more Goldy love how you cannot appreciate it all huh blinding this is cuz shade you see it now cute can we see it down that's a little bit on the nose Cupid's bow but not too much on the Cupid's bow so it just looks like I have a mustache and then four must get out today that's a contour one Rachel I brought the Y style the shock mascara glamour go home gosh like sweaty sweating out here well it's been two days they put on my scare and I'm like wow I forgot I had eyelashes boom not super cottagey but wow they're clumpy lashes but I love it little gray hi Brandon okay that's something spray I liked entirely miss my face how did I do that so not even that windy oh I can use wind Mother Nature is setting fat and then for lip I'm gonna start with a satin lip this is by Rimmel I think yes it is we're not gonna do gloss yet because winds such a pretty like nudey pink so I have three sisters in law and two of them are married one to Brandon just walking around over there one to mark and then Scott its dating Caroline whom you've seen in videos did my mother-in-law my father-in-law and my two kids and then Chris and I so full Huck's one did you win mark yeah there we go boom cottage chic my friends take down my hair oh I didn't even get like a ponytail bottom or at least not a terrible one anyway I'll show you guys kind of a little bit of the outside so here's the outside of the cottage so pretty this is an extension and we go down here and there's a nice hot tub and then over here we have a swing set which the kids and obsessed what they've been having so much fun on it and then here we have a beach volleyball court that people have been playing on and we have paddle boats and canoes and rafts and that's like a lily pad thing the blue thing and over here is where we had our little campfire place it was didn't love that as much and honestly that's where we've been spending most of our time it has been a lot of fun just sort of spending time outdoors person inside the cottage which is also very lovely but like look at it outside I don't want to leave here we have it's a beautiful kitchen over the water but it's one kitchen not enough don't worry because to kitchen there's a kitchen in the basement as well as like a whole bunch of bedrooms and everything there slew this place just goes on forever oh my gosh I forgot to show you the ping-pong room and also mark hi mark miss right here is what we've been deeming the ping-pong room it is like completely soundproof here and the room right above we've been

Leaving for my family’s annual Corn Roast Reunion on Friday! We play frisbee golf and Texas horseshoes and it always has a theme ( this year is anything but cups 😂 )

Deb White · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

What brow brush are you using?

kiley radovich · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

you should try an Andes mint instead of regular chocolate for s’mores ! It’s so good!

kiley radovich · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

I actually know the person who invented can jam!! love that game 😂

Lori Coocen · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

My 26yr old son and I go on a mother son cruise every year! I live in Boston and he lives in Los Angeles, so we usually go in Jan. This will be our 3rd annual, can't wait

Jill Foutz · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

I just tried paddle boarding this week in San Diego and I loved it!

Ashlee Davis · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

Dibs spraying herself in the eye is so me 🤣 bless her

Maddi Martin · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

What shade was the rimmel satin lip?! I need to try!🤩

Rebecca Lynn Taylor · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

My family has a huge family reunion every 2 years! There's about 100 of us and we take over a small town in Northern BC 😂😄😍

sophiaa · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

I’m just sitting here watching this in my mildly sketchy non- luxury cabin 😂

PinkPromises · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

We used to be a big family that went on annual trips abroad in summer and to our lodge in autumn and winter together. But now everyone is divorced and broken up and moved away, so no more large family gatherings. Which is fine with me. Money saved and I get to chill at home with a stack of books and the dog, which is my dream holiday destination and activity.

Robyn Hillier · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

If only I could afford a dyson anything 😢 I’m pretty sure the box is too costly for me

Cassie Mede · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

Don't worry, s'mores I hate. But marshmallows YES!!! I will only eat them. Forget all the other stuff. Just pure deliciousness

Every year we go to Fayetteville,WV and go hiking, biking, and go to an amazing lake water park. It is so much fun, there are countless inflatables in the lake along with zip-lining into the lake, a giant blob where you can get launched into the air, a splash pad for the kid, water slides and local craft beer for the grownups. The hikes and bike rides take you to some of the most breathtaking views in the whole state. Bonus it is only a 2.5 hour drive for us so great weekend trip!

For the kitchen I love navy blue cabinets with white counter tops and a light grey or white backsplash.

Try using gluten free graham crackers. I discovered them while making a cheesecake for gluten free friends, and they're about a million times better than ordinary graham crackers. Don't know why; they just are.

Kristie Williams · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

I'm annually disappointed by my husband not taking me on a vacation 🤦‍♀️ does that count?

Mel G · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

Offended by the s’mores comment 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄😂❤️

Samantha Visser · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

Since having kids, we've started the tradition of going camping for a night at KOA, and than going to Santa's Village. So fun!

Kira Bozyk · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

Instead of smores, coat a strawberry in marshmallow fluff and roast that over the fire. Soooo good!!!!

Andrea Forsström · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

Lol that bird screming in the backround…. i thought it was my nose for way to long…

Marwah Ghazi · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

I finally found someone who doesn’t like s’mores that much either 😂

Kenzie Hiatt · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

If you don't like traditional s'mores try making them with your favorite candy. I love mine with Hershey's cookie and cream. My daughter loves her with reese cups and mini marshmallows because she doesn't like too much of it.

jayneb09 · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

“I feel like if I have my brows done, the rest of my face doesn’t matter because BROWZ”
LOLZ you’re great!

RinnyDale · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

👍🏻👍🏻

Vanessa Massie · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

Is a cottage like a lake house?? 😂

Bridget Copeland · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

Where is this cottage? 🇨🇦

Kimberly Akers · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

You are so bubbly

Aryn Maynard · July 27, 2019 at 3:34 pm

Fun fact: kan jam originated in Western NY. The game, as it is now, was founded by a science teacher at North Tonawanda high school and his friend. I grew up near there, my parents went to that school and I have an early version of the game from 2005 when it was first released. So much fun, even more fun when you're drunk or playing in the pouring rain or both. So glad it's in Canada and that you are enjoying it. ❤️🇨🇦❤️
