Living in Victoria has its perks. We have beautiful seascapes, great local artisans, farms looking for goat cuddlers (seriously)… We also have an ABUNDANCE of coffee shops. Like, damn good coffee shops.

OK, Vancouver Island. We need to talk. This whole winter weather thing you have going on isn’t a great look for you. I mean yea the white-topped trees and the beautiful blustery skies are pretty and all but c’mon. It’s March. It’s not like we’re the prairies or the east coast! Out here on the west coast we usually see bright pops of pink and yellow from the cherry blossoms and daffodils yet you have Nanaimo covered in snow. SNOW!!
WHERE ARE ALL MY “HAIR IS MY SECURITY BLANKET” LADIES AT?! You know who you are – you dread going to the hairdressers for fear of sitting silently in that chair while someone chops off your precious tresses as you silently scream (or in my case cry) as they totally mangle your beautiful locks. Yea, I’m talkin’ to you. Well grab a cup of tea, sit your butt down, and let me tell you about the goodness that is Serenity Salon.
Nothing can make you feel as good as a great haircut. Alternatively, nothing can make feel as sh*t as an awful haircut.
So I have this thing about sunsets (like most people probably). I love love love me a good sunset. Not like the clear sky sunsets but sunsets where clouds are splattered across the sky, painted in brilliant colours of pink, peach, and lilac. One thing I wish I enjoyed more were sunrises. I mean, it’s not that I DON’T enjoy essentially a reverse sunset (can I make that a thing?). It’s just that the sunrise ascends from the horizon just too goddamn early.
It’s here! It’s here! Catch my quick trip up to Campbell River to visit Elk Falls:
