We got the amazing opportunity to go to Honolulu with Honolulu Magazine for the first ever Honolulu Fashion Week and it was so much fun to be a part of. It is absolutely crazy to me that it was their first year doing it because everything was SO well put together and produced beautifully. The lighting, music, hair, make up, everything felt just like a NYFW show but with a tropical touch. I loved getting to see some of the local designer’s work as well as being introduced to some new and amazing designers. I love being around talented people, it is so so inspiring.

There was something extra special about this trip and I am not sure if it was just because the Honolulu Magazine team was SO amazing and gracious or just because Honolulu is absolutely amazing, but this trip just felt really special for us. I felt super close to my boys as cheesy as that sounds! I even turned down a free spa day because I didn’t want to be away from them. We just had such a fun time together and I never wanted it to end. We got to stay at the Royal Hawaiian and I am absolutely obsessed with how beautiful of a resort it is!! They call it the pink palace because everything is pink!! Its literally a girls dream. Everything about the resort was just so relaxing and amazing, it is right on the beach so we spent most of our days just out on the beach or at the cabana by the pool with a view of the beach 🙂 we are already counting down the day until we can go back.

Thank you so much Honolulu Magazine, Royal Hawaiian, and Hawaiian Airlines for a beyond amazing trip!

THIS TIME LAST YEAR

I did a lot of vacationing in Hawaii while living in Japan and seriously every time I went I was on a mission to get to Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack and Target. And then we finally get to move to America again and I move to Alabama… aaannnnddd there is no Nordstrom : / How is this possible?
