Insta-Hawaii

Hey everyone! I'm back from my happy place and although I am having serious Hawaii withdrawals, I am glad to be back home, back to my doggies and back to blogging. It was a nice break but I really did miss writing and making photoshop collages. I am a dork, I know.

If you follow me on Instagram, you might be annoyed with me have seen some of these pics but if not, here is a trip recap!*


Left to Right - Top to Bottom (not in chronological order - don't hate me)...

The view from our first lunch on Kona at the Fairmont Orchid. Lunches can't get any better than this when you have this view and your feet are in the sand. Oh and there was a vegan menu - awesome!

Birthday collage! What I wore (black Lulus top, Zara Lace Shorts (last year's but these are similar), CWAK chunky chain necklace (online soon) and Kate Spade Sparkly Clutch), one of the many spicy birthday margaritas I consumed and a much needed end of night package of Li Hing Gummies.

View from Treadmill. I know that running outside has a better view but not when it's 85 degrees and humid. I'll take this view and some AC instead!

Monkeypod - our favorite new restaurant in Maui! We went twice! They make their own cream pies. Enough said.

Aloha Bling! Cute story...I saw this in a shop and told my husband that I loved it. Then as I was looking around, he sneakily bought it for me and gave it to me at dinner. He's the best!

Lahaina/Kaanapali Day! We usually stay on the Kaanapali side of Maui but this time we stayed in Wailea. So we had to take a half day to visit our favorite spots in Lahaina - Pakaloha bikinis (more on this later), Aloha Mixed plate and Whaler's Village.

Sunset View from Kona. This picture is real...no photoshop and no filter. Amazing!

Our second favorite restaurant in Maui - the Kihei Cafe. This is one of the best breakfasts on the island! The pancakes were to die for!

Pretty much what I looked like every day of the entire trip. Sunnies, some sort of hat and a CWAK necklace! I did dress up at night though!

And now here is a bunch of random pictures with us actually in them!


I could bore you with many more pics but I'll refrain. Overall it was an awesome trip and we can't wait to go back again!

Lastly, thanks to all of you for the birthday wishes last week! So far it was the best birthday ever (besides the one in 2008 when I got engaged and was front row for a Dave Matthews & Jack Johnson concert in Hawaii but that's really hard to top!)

Have you ever been to Hawaii? What are your favorite vacation spots?
