New LBD

Hi everyone! Can you believe that Christmas is only one week away??

Today I’ll be under the Wish Family Tent for Make-A-Wish Hawaii’s 4th annual Jingle Rock Run, to style little girls hair and make them feel like princesses for the race.  I’m hoping that the weather cooperates with us because I did see some rain in the forecast. Either way, I’m sure we will have a blast!

The dress I’m wearing today is my most recent purchase and I’m completely obsessed with it. I styled it with some gold kicks here for a cool laid back look. Like it?

My Christmas Dress

Hi loves! Life has been a little crazy for me lately, so I apologize for being MIA, but I’m back!

I’m soooo excited that Christmas time is upon us. It’s my most favorite time of the year (cue the music). Last weekend, my family and I kicked off the start of December by going to the Honolulu City Lights parade and took full advantage of the food trucks and rides for my babes. If you want to catch a peek of what Honolulu looks like around Christmas time, you can get a glimpse here.

On Sunday, my husband had his company Christmas party. I wore this plaid slip dress which made me feel perfectly festive. Needless to say, I’m pretty obsessed with it, and I’m looking forward to all the different ways that I can style it.

Winter Blues and Mermaid Hues

Happy Monday loves!

My parents came to visit me this last week, so I made sure to take advantage of my momma’s hair skills while she was here, and got her to give me a mini makeover. My hair had faded out, and I was slipping deeper and deeper into a hair slump. She gave me a blue hue that I had been coveting for a while, with Matrix Watercolors.

My new look reflects my inner mermaid spirit and matches the ocean I’m surrounded by. What do you think?

Rose Gold

img_8087 img_8287 img_8309 img_8188 img_8291 img_8310 img_8292 img_8214 img_8221 img_8293Last weekend I went to San Francisco to model for the Matrix show with Tabatha Coffey. I had been letting my hair grow without coloring any of the new hair for almost 11 months, so I was pretty excited for a change.

As it turns out, the artists at the show liked my rose gold hair from a couple months ago so much, that they decided to give me a spin off of that color. I think it’s perfect for this pumpkin spice season 🙂

What do you think of my color? Let me know in the comments below!

My Tribe

fullsizerender47 img_7757img_7758img_4451fullsizerender40

A couple weeks ago I took my family hiking on the Kuli’ou’ou Ridge Trail. I had done it just a few days before that, and I loved it so much that I just had to bring them to it.

When I did the hike, we were in anticipation of hurricane Madeline coming through. Luckily it passed by us, but we still experienced quite a bit of wind and overcast skies. When I got to the top of trail, I couldn’t see the view.

The day that we planned to go as a family, we were blessed with gorgeous weather. The best reward? The view + our shenanigans at the top! This was such a great family activity. I love hiking with my tribe!

We didn’t realize we were making memories. We just knew we were having fun.

10 Active Dates

A couple months ago my husband and I decided to try something new. Every month, we would make sure to have at least 1 date, and we would take turns planning what we would do. So far it’s been really fun and I’ve enjoyed the creativity of our outings!

Our latest date was a 13 mile bike ride. We rode from our house clear down to the end of Waikiki and back. My husband planned this date, and he hit it out of the park! It was the perfect day!

If you like this idea that we are doing, here are 10 active date ideas that you can try with your significant other. Best of all, most of them are free!

image

  1. Go on a bike ride

This date made me feel like a kid again! You can even race each other if you’re competitive 🙂

image

2. Go on a hike

There is nothing like unplugging from everything around you and just getting out in some fresh air. Studies have shown that hiking reduces stress you and you’ll have fun adventuring together.

3. Explore your city

Have you ever played tourist in your own city? Walk around and see if there are any shops, restaurants or cafés you’ve never been to before.

image

4. Pick your own apples

If you live near any U-pick orchards, this is a must-do activity! There is nothing like fresh fruit right off the tree! You’ll have healthy food for your week, or you can be naughty and make an apple crisp or pie.

5. Go on an evening walk

Finished with dinner and getting ready to Netflix and chill? Put the remote down and go on a stroll around the neighborhood first. You can talk about your day, and burn a few extra calories before you veg out the rest of the night.

image

6. Go sledding

This is another one of those activities that brings out the kid in you. And its really quite surprising how worked out you feel after a few hours of trekking up and down a snowy hill.

7. Do a corn maze

This one will get your minds and your adrenaline going. Plus if you’re a scardy cat like me, you’ll be forced to hold each other the entire time for fear of your life.

image

8. Go ice skating/ rollerskating

Remember couples skate at the rink when you were younger? It’s still as fun 🙂

image

9. Go find and cut your own Christmas tree

This is one that I’d like to do at some point, but I’d have to live on the mainland to do it, since there’s a shortage of snowy mountains here. I just think it would be romantic, fun, and full of holiday cheer.

image

10. Hit the gym

There’s just something about working out together. You push each other to be better and you feel better and look better afterward!

I hope that a few of these ideas spark your interest! Do you have any other fun active date ideas? Let me know in the comments below!

Kuli’ou’ou Ridge

A little peek into my hiking adventure this week just before hurricane Madeline came. Fortunately, she went around us.  Lester is on his way, but I hear he’ll miss us too. Good news all around 🙂

There’s no time to be bored in a world as beautiful as this.

More Sprinkles, Please

imageimageimageimageimage

Happy Aloha Friday! This post is sure to send you sparkling right into the weekend.

Glitter roots is a trend that we’ve seen this year, and I love it. I’ve yet to try it out on myself, so I thought I’d try it on my doughnut loving daughter. After all, she always goes for doughnuts with sprinkles. Now she has her own doughnuts on her head.

I may have had a little too much fun doing this, and I can promise you that I will be playing with glitter in hair much more! What do you think of the glitter hair trend? Would you rock it? Let me know in the comments below!
