The Honor 8

This past Tuesday I went up to San Francisco for the launch of the new Honor 8.  Honor is the young or young at heart brand from Huawei.  Many people in the USA many not know this but Huawei phones are the #3 brand throughout the world.  The Honor 8 is designed to be a phone for millennials with all the technology and features they want in their busy social lives.  I have been using the Honor 5X since its USA release this past January and I loved it so I was super excited to try the Honor 8!

Hidden Gem: Semiahmoo Resort in Blaine, Washington



Before I even went to Semiahmoo I recognized it when I looked it up online from lots of pictures I have seen of Washington State.  The beauty of the resort can not be beat and the best part is that it is affordable!  It is quite a feat to find a resort in this day in age that has everything you would want and won't break the bank.  The reason I say Semiahmoo is a hidden gem is because it is on the coast in a little town right at the border with Canada and if you blink on I-5 you will miss the exit for it end up in Canada.  I can say hands down I will go back again soon because it was so beautiful!
