Local Boys

If you were looking for some hot "local boys"'ve clicked through to the wrong link!  Well little cuz is pretty stinkin cute...and my Hubby's pretty hot!

This post is all about the best shaved ice I've ever had...EVER!

My little Cuz JJ

My Hubby

Kihei Local Boys Shop

Where can you enjoy this?  On the Hawaiian Island of Maui with two locations...South Kihei Road in the Kalama Village and on Front Street in Lahaina near the Famous Banyan Trees.  They're the only shop on the island that offers free extras...I recommend adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the bottom and Kauai Cream on top...oh and gummy bears if you really want to go for it!  

Favorite flavors: Guava, Dreamsicle, Sharks Blood, Tigers Blood, Lychee, Pineapple, Mango and Watermelon!

Drooling yet?  I am!

Maui Eats: Leoda's

If you're headed to Maui and asking me...I'd have you stop in at Leoda's Kitchen and Pie Shop!  It's a must stop for us at least once when we're on the island...if not more than once!

I can only speak for the sandwiches, fries and pies...but I can't imagine anything anything would taste anything less than amazing!  Top favorite pies have to be the above Coconut Cream and Banana Cream...but their Mixed Berry was pretty awesome too!  Best sandwiches...Pastrami, Spicy Tuna and whatever Fish Sandwich Special they had last time we were there!  Oh, and the Mac N' Cheese Balls...d-lish!  

Enjoy...and Aloha!

Get Pumped... for starters I LOVE this brand...not too sure why it's so hard to find but I won't complain, I'm just glad I found it!  How I found it...well I happen to have these amazing friends that have an amazing store in San Francisco by the name of seedstore...they guessed it...AMAZING taste, so this find is all thanks to them!  And now you don't have to be a Bay Area kid to shop them...they're now online!!!

Not only are these super cute...they're actually comfortable...all thanks to their padded leather footbed.  The rest of the stats... 4'' with a 1'' platform, rounded toe, chunky wooden heel and leather sole with rubber forepart and heel first! 

I've only had mine for a few weeks and I can't tell you how many complements I get on them!

Happy Shopping!

Spelling...Grammar & Punctuation

If you were to just read my blog for the first time you wouldn't know this about me...but take a look and you'll find my favorite punctuation.  It's the ellipsis or ... 

I honestly didn't even know it was a for real me it represented something different than a pause or breath like a comma...and it just felt like me, my thoughts don't stop...pause or breath so...perfection!  I've also always found it comical that I'm a fairly decent writer...not to say I'm good at it but to say people like how I put words together...they want to keep reading.  Hoping I didn't loose anyone as this would be a very poor example...HA!  

To the point...and the part funner than words...the goods!  I found the bracelet that describes me...fitting that it comes from Kate Spade...ah how I love Kate Spade.

I'm pretty sure the Design Team at Kate Spade planted some sort of microchip in my brain that can read my thoughts and they design the majority of their collections with the information they've gathered from it.  Just saying.

Call Me Maybe

Not every great find is mine...this amazing must have was forwarded to me by a great friend and a dangerous shopping partner!

On Pins and Needles

OK, seriously...I would love to spend a day with the Kate Spade Design Team.  To see their the team...get inside their heads and just suck in all of the amazingness that I just know is going on there!

A trip to any shopping area that has a Kate Spade Store is a must stop in for me...I have to see if there is anything new...I've missed out one too many times in the past.  On my last visit I found these super cute "Bobby's"...I had to get one for me and one for my Big Sister...she's a hair dresser and her Daughters name is Bobbi...I mean come on right!?!

Bobby Pins

Keep giving me cuteness and I'll keep handing over my paycheck!

From: Me To: Me

Some times you just have to congratulate yourself...this was my gift to me!  Now I know what you're thinking..."Uh, she's constantly buying things for herself."...well yeah.  But every now and then the gifts I give myself have meaning... 

Juicy Couture Parrot Bangle

and this one is no different...I just landed a new job!  It's been six years in my current job and when I landed that position I got myself some amazing Juicy Couture Aviator Sunglasses...still have them...and they're still pretty amazing!  It's fun and important to treat yourself to something special...perhaps something you wouldn't normally buy.  Who needs a parrot one really...but isn't it fab?! 

Yay me!

Now I know what you're thinking..."A banana slicer. Really?" it's Fashion, Lifestyle and Beauty here people...I'm covering the Lifestyle aspect today!

Chef'n Bananza Hand-Held Banana Slicer

I recently gave this to my Sister...a mother of a 3 year old and a 3 week old!  I figured it would be a fun way to keep her oldest interested in fruit and a faster way to slice it! Then my Mom actually used it to cut strawberries  as well so it's extra useful!

Functional...stylish...GO BANANAS!

Arm Candy

I swear it's like the designers at Kate Spade are designing just for me sometimes!  It's all I can do to hold myself back...

This obsession began when I feel in love with the "No Sleep Til Brooklyn" Bangle a little over a year ago...I couldn't smuggle that bad boy over my wide fist so I thought there was no hope...but when the "Play Hooky" Bangle appeared I knew I had to give it the old college try...and it fit!!  Now I'm screwed...before you know it I'll have a Kate Spade Bangle collection, not a bad thing but an expensive obsession none the less.  Shortly after obtaining the "Play Hooky" Bangle I acquired the Sink or Swim Bracelet...we're talkin' days here people!  

Happy Shopping!

On a recent trip to Tucson Arizona I stumbled upon this amazing Betsey Johnson Necklace with a Southwestern theme...needless to say I fell in love...well sort of.  I wasn't sure that this necklace was really me...and I had a hunch that Betsey would offer my favorite part of the necklace...the a ring...

Betsey Johnson Flights of Fancy
Cactus Frontal Necklace
I promptly took out my iPhone and google shopped it...sure enough it did exist!  While my best friend was shopping in the store I was shopping on my phone! I got my ring from Von Maur...never heard of it but they were tax and shipping free...sold! 

Betsey Johnson Flight of Fancy
Cactus Stretch Ring
Here's the kicker...I started to feel like my ring would be after much debate I bough the necklace from Dillard's...that and I needed some instant shopping gratification!  For further torture I found yet another version of this necklace online that I like even more...the Flights of Fancy Charm Y-Necklace for $ I'll stick with my $68 version. online can be dangerous!
