Island Treasures – February 2nd

<p> Generic remark about how it’s February already.</p>

Great, now that we’ve got that out of the way we can dive back into our favourite part of the week…Island Treasures! Before we jump in though I’d like to just make it clear that any business or resource we feature here has in no way asked us to or frankly even known we would be including them. Everything we choose to include is 100% because we believe strongly in them/it and think that there is a benefit to providing them to you as readers! No bullshit, just treasures we love…
