Here's part 3 of my Hawaii food diaries, venturing onto another island-the beautiful island of Maui! This post will be for the food we ate on the first few days on Maui when we got off the airport and headed straight towards Hana. The road to Hana is an ever so popular scenic drive around the coast with windy paths (not for the feint of heart!). I'll be sharing the food we got to try on the way there as well as on the way back between Hana and Paia.


Happy Thursday! Today's post is a little bit of a #ThrowbackThursday from recent trip to Hawaii. We had the chance to try out two delicious Japanese restaurants while in Hawaii (this one on Oahu, the other one in Maui) and today I'll be sharing my insights on this place called Sushi Sasabune located in Honolulu. We went for the Omakase (leave it up to the chef) for our dishes which is always our preference when it comes to good quality Japanese food since they usually choose their freshest and best catches of the day.

Getting (and Keeping) that Ultimate Healthy Glow All Year Round w/ ALOHA

Happy weekend everybody!

I'm really excited to share today's post due to the fact that it all about Hawaii, the Aloha spirit and keeping that summer glow that you may have had during the warmer months! Maintaining that healthy glow is not only by what you put on your skin, but also what you put into your body's system to help it glow from within. This post will touch base on both skin care products to help keep that healthy glow as well as a few recipes that are nutrient rich with whole foods and superfoods that will help get you there!

When I was approached by ALOHA for this post, it could not have been more of a coincidence since I was actually in vacation in Hawaii! After getting some decent amount of sun exposure and a nice tan color, I thought it'd be a great opportunity to share my tips on keeping my tan and what I have done to maintain it, especially coming back home to a MUCH colder climate. As seen in the picture above (taken early October), I have a developed a nice tan color to my skin just from being outside venturing in Hawaii. It's been about a month since I've been back from the beautiful islands and these items have been tried and true to maintaining this glow.


Every time it hits Fall time, I instantly think of deep red colors whether it is in clothing, accessories or makeup. This outfit I'm sharing today features the deep oxblood color, with pieces that are from last year, but are totally wearable this season. This faux leather oxblood skirt was a score at Nordstrom Rack last year and the sweater is from 2 years ago at an Urban Outfitters sale. Though these pieces may not be from this year or season, they're definitely staples and classic pieces that can be worn time and time again.

Guest Post: The Best Rainy Day Beauty Tips and Tricks by Amy Mia Goldsmith

*this post is a guest post written by Amy Mia Goldsmith*
We are all preoccupied with protecting our skin from the summer sun, sea salt and chlorine, and when the summer is finally over, we all feel relieved that we do not need to worry about it anymore, all the while forgetting that the worst is yet to come. Fierce cold winds, frostbite, humidity, and monsoon-like downpours require you to revise your skin care routine and take it to the next level. This is particularly important for people with dry and sensitive skin. Rainy days can be really challenging when it comes to staying pretty as well.There are few things in a girl’s life that are worse than getting all dolled up and then soaked through half an hour later. However, you should not let a gusty day get you down.
Read these simple tips and tricks and prepare yourself to brave the harshest of elements.


These posts are far overdue but I finally had time to get everything together to share my Hawaii Food Diaries series! This first post is dedicated most if not all the food I had during my 4 day stay in Oahu. I'll be breaking it down by location and sharing my thoughts on them!
