What better excuse to visit Victoria than to attend a dear friend’s Bridal Shower?

Delaney is one of the kindest, most hilarious souls you will ever meet. We met one faithful day when we both were attending an Art History Club meeting at The University of Victoria when Delaney graciously commented on my boots and asked where I got them. Little did she know I would talk her ear off and the rest is history.

ps. Delaney y u so cute.

This woman makes me cackle like no other. Seriously. She also has a heart of gold and will do anything for her friends. She even makes a great honorary bridesmaid when you invite her as your plus one to your sister’s wedding.

pps. you should check out her blog The Little Coast because it is amazing. She’s amazing. You’ll be amazing once you read it.

I even had the absolute pleasure of meeting some new friends, Natalie and Carly!

The next day, Tori and I went to Craigdarroch Castle to visit Delaney at work!

Delaney is a Floor Supervisor at the castle so she gave us an extra special behind-the-scenes tour. Ps. Fun Fact: Craigdarroch Castle is actually a Bonanza Castle instead of just a castle which meansΒ they were “massive houses built for entrepreneurs who became wealthy during the industrial age.” Check out their website for more history about the castle!

When I used to live in Victoria, I would frequently pop in to my FAVOURITE jewelry shop Violette Boutique. If you are ever in Victoria, you should really go in a take a look at all the amazing gems. It’s like walking into a dream. A dream where you spend a lot of money.

Tori and I then ventured over to Fisherman’s Wharf for some lunch and to creep on the adorable colourful houseboats!

Look at these adorable squishes. Basically me when I swim.

Made a wish. Can’t tell you though.

What you can’t see is me scowling at the child who started to walk up the hill to photobomb my photo.

It was a spiritual moment.

I can’t wait to reunite with Delaney when I go to her wedding next month!
