vacay recap!

soooo I'm back from my amazing vacay in Oahu, Hawaii! it was just a short trip & of course i wish i was longer, but I'm happy to be home...I'm just lucky to be in love with where i live

once again Hawaii didn't disappoint...however, I am use to going to Maui. I’ve only been to Oahu one other time when I was younger so this was still kinda new to me & oh man was i shocked...

we stayed at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach located smack in the middle of Waikiki...our hotel was on the beach so it was very convenient....but even better; I was literally surrounded by stores...& i don't mean your  typical shopping mall stores...i mean huge, designer stores....everywhere i looked there was Tory Burch & Louis Vuitton. I was in heaven...it literally was like Disneyland for shopping...every single store was so beautiful & so brilliantly merchandised...i felt like i was in a museum of art, that’s how amazing it was....and let me tell you i have shopped everywhere - SF, LA  & NY & this by far was the best shopping I have ever come across (until i go to Europe that is)...don't worry i took plenty of pictures...but because I took so many each day this week will focus on different store, so get excited!

today’s post is just going to be a "photo dump" of my Hawaiian vacation! so sit back & welcome to paradise

i miss it already! Mahalo Hawaii for another wonderful time & I will be back again soon!!!


my hair at the end of my trip after much swimming in the ocean & no brushing...now that's a mess....it has even started to dread.

also as you may know my birthday is this month.... May 27th to be exact! every year since i can remember i have made a big deal out of my birthday! its more like a birthday week...but since I am turning 27 on the 27th I am going even bigger this year which means May Giveaways ALL month long....think of this as Oprah's Favorite Things but MessyDirtyHair Edition! So get excited & be ready to win some pretty fabulous stuff!!

Love this so much, so adorable. Glad you had fun! :)
And I manage to not live on the streets because I work in those super fancy stores and the pay is gooooood, and my husband works too. haha My store is the #3 Bottega Veneta in the US, so the sales are good. ;)
Love your beach hair, when I lived on Maui my hair was longer and blonde and kind of looked like yours and I had so many dreads. So gnar.
