Trip to Victoria, B.C. || Part 1

Ever since we made the move out to Washington I had a list in mind of what I wanted to do. Kinda like a bucket list. There's things that I probably wouldn't have ever done if we hadn't moved here. Visiting Victoria, B.C. was one of them. So when my mom came into town we decided to take a 90 minute ferry ride over to Canada. Perks of living in the PNW right now.

So in a nutshell, Victoria is absolutely beautiful, has some of the friendliest people, amazing food, & even better coffee. One of the nicest things was the fact that no matter where you stay, you can walk anywhere. Which is so perfect considering the amount of food we ate... Didn't make you feel as guilty. That's at least the way I like to think of it. (;

We stayed at Laurel Pointe Inn. Once you get off the ferry, you take a right, walk less than five minutes and you arrive at our hotel. It was the perfect location with an incredible view of the harbor.

Here are just some snap shots from our stay. If I put all the photos in one it would be an incredibly long post so I decided to break it up into two posts. This first post is just going to be photos of us walking around town. The second post will be places we loved, so stay tuned! (:

Parliament at night is a must see. We were on our way back to our hotel at this point & it was beyond beautiful to see it all lit up.

It's not everyday you run into a seal.. well maybe it is for us now living in PNW but definitely no seals in Indiana.

Tea Tree Oil Shampoo with Maple Holistics -- Review

I'm excited to be back everyone! It's been way too long! I have had some trouble renewing my domain, which I'm already not tech savvy at all so the non stop "chat with us" on the google page was my life. It took me forever to figure it out but I did it & on the bright side I'm learning.

So I have a confession to make...
I'm kinda a hair junkie. I love trying new hair products. Serums, oils, shampoos, & conditioners. I will try them all so when Maple Holistics reached out to see if I would be willing to try there tea tree shampoo I said yes with no hesitation.

I was sent this shampoo a little bit ago but I wanted to use it for a couple weeks before I felt like I could give you my honest opinion.
I'm impressed. Not only does it smell amazing, it also has incredible benefits to your hair & scalp as well. It's a win-win in my book.

Here's the link to their free samples program as well. I love samples so I was so excited when I heard they had this. I feel like every company should have something like this.





This all natural tea tree shampoo did the trick for me & my dry scalp. Especially since I do not wash my hair everyday but this has been my go to shampoo to really deep clean my hair without drying it out. Tea tree oil in itself offers your body incredible benefits along with smelling very therapeutic.  You add it to a shampoo & you have amazing results as well. It's perfect for Brent & I to share that is ...if I let him. (;



Now to just get my hands on the conditioner....
