Honolua Surf Co.
My favorite surf apparel company, Honolua makes cute t-shirts, rash guards, dresses and sweatshirts (yes, it gets chilly in the tropics). Every time I visit the islands, I pick up a couple of their printed tees.
The lovely Mrs. Lynne takes makeup ‘ohana (family) to new heights with her beauty blog, MakeupFix.net. Reporting from the island of Oahu in Hawaii, she covers MAC Cosmetics and a whole lot more.
Their slogan reads, “Changing the way you do your business, one drop at a time.” A small business based in Hawaii, Poof sells these little drops that you plop into the toilet after you’ve “dropped the kids off at the pool.” I wrote about them once before. The drops eliminate any unpleasant odors … and the whole concept just makes me laugh.
Na Hoku sells a wide range of Hawaii-themed gold, silver and platinum fine jewelry from its stores nationwide. Last year, El Hub got me a Na Hoku necklace and pendant for our anniversary, and that’s how I found out about the company. Check out their 14k gold slipper pendants. Cute, yah?
Maui Divers Jewelry
Founded in 1959, Maui Divers Jewelry creates unique, high-quality, handcrafted designs out of coral, gold and other precious gemstones and pearls. They have a huge selection of pearls and heart pendants.
I spent my birthday yesterday at the beach! The waves were good on the south shore, so I even got in a little surfing. Any day you’re able to surf in warm waters is a great day; if you happen to do it on your birthday, that’s even better.
That’s me falling off the board there. As you can plainly see, I’m not riding tubes or anything. I get up, I fall off — that’s pretty much the extent of my surfing prowess.
I slept in this morning and got off to a late start. Now, I’m off to a meeting at Nordstrom, Ala Moana to visit the Lippmann Nail Bar. Later, I’m hitting a local Sephora to see if I can find any unusual brands of makeup. Wish me luck.
I hope you’re having a great Tuesday so far!
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
