We’re approaching 6 months here on Oahu. It seems like just the other day we turned over our keys to our NYC apartment and jumped on an 11 hour flight. It’s been a pretty wild adventure. We’ve had some of the most memorable experiences here. I know we’ll always look back at this time fondly.

We try to make it to the beach as a family every day. Not necessarily for full on beach days, but at for at least morning walks with Chauncey or to watch sunset. But at least once a week we try to do a full beach day. We’ll pick a new beach we want to see, or go to one of our favorites and spend a good portion of the day. We quickly found that we were always super unsorganized, lugging stuff back and forth to the beach so we came up with a system with all our beach gear and honestly it’s made our beach trips so much more enjoyable.

Finally have this tutorial!!! We were having some technical difficulties with it lol but it is finally done and I am so excited because it is requested on the daily! I have always had STICK STRAIGHT natural hair so doing these no heat, tight waves is fun for me. I kind of envy people who have hair like this naturally! But luckily it is really really easy to achieve this look and there are three ways I get my no heat beachy waves so in the video I share all three. In these photos I had my natural hair braided and my extensions just scrunched from the salt water in the ocean and I let them air dry like that. The good thing about most hair extensions is that they are naturally wavy so when wet they scrunch super nice! You can use a mousse or salt spray if you aren’t by the ocean but you may have to wash them sooner since product does kind of start to build on them.
