Green Short Coat



I'm craving to wear a green short coat, preferrably with a stand up collar like the picture above! You can find similar styles: here and here. There's also one with fur! Hope it's not sold out yet!

Bird Cuffs





I'm attracted to anything with a bird motif. So I found these 2 gorgeous bird cuffs by J.Crew (top) and Jewel Mint (bottom pictures). They're both equally nice to me. Hmm which do I choose?

My muse for today. I love how the leopard scarf is worn with the green leather jacket.

Ugg or No?





Should I or should I not buy these cute comfy Uggs? Did I say cute? I already have an imitation pair from China but I really want the real deal! I recently have been spying on these short ones with a button. However, I'm afraid of getting Hawaiian red dirt on it, especially the inside lining! I need a good reason to get these. Hmmm...I am taking a trip to NY soon! Yes, that's it! Do you have a favorite pair of Uggs? Tell me why it's a good/bad reason to get it!

Billabong in the Spring





I can't wait for SPRING! Wait a minute...it's spring/summer all year long here in Hawaii. Haha. Anyhow, the mainland brands are now coming out with shorts, light fabrics, vibrant colors, and cool graphics! Above are my favorite looks from Billabong Womens. I just bought the Drop In Pants for $39.50 and it's matching top called, Daydream Mist Tank Top for the same price. They are both so comfy and casual. Be careful because you may want to go a size smaller since it's roomy. You also can pull it up to your knees for the cropped look. They tank top is so cute too! It's like a concert tank so there's the concert tour locations on the back. It's more like a racer back top and cut low on the sides so I recommend wearing a bandeau underneath. Anyhow this is pretty true to size. Check it out at Billabong!

Retro Twin Runners

video

Does anyone live in the Santa Monica area? Well my sister sent me this video that she look from her car window. Apparently these twins jog around Santa Monica in matching retro outfits but she's never seen them do this exercise in sync. Have you seen them? Isn't this hilarious! Only in California!

Vogues Issues





My recent purchase from Nordstrom is this cool tank. Yes, I have more issues than Vogue. haha. I'm just kidding. But I like joking around and this cheeky saying is just right. I'm a t-shirt gal since all I wear at work is that and jeans. I think they may have sold out, but keep trying to search for it if you love it. They could have it at other Nordstrom stores.

Happy Haleiwa in Hawaii














One of my favorite place to visit is Happy Haleiwa,which is located on the island of Oahu. I'm probably partial to this store because the owner's my friend. They have two locations on this beautiful island: Waikiki (Royal Hawaiian Ave), North Shore (Haleiwa Town), and Ward Center. This store carries many Hawaii themed trinkets from key chains to coozies. They also carry cute beach bags, lunch bags, and recycled bags with their logo on top. What I especially love are their cool and cute illustrated tees. Nowadays, it's rare that I see hand drawn illustrations on t-shirts. Some have that retro vibe going too which is catchy! They have sayings such as "Best Friends Forever" and "Life is Short Make it Sweet". What I also love are their food! They carry chocolates, tea, and local flavored pancake mixes (coconut, guava, macadamia nut). This is like a one stop gift/souvenir shop! You may visit http://www.happyhaleiwa.net/ https://www.facebook.com/happyhaleiwa, and http://happyhaleiwa.net/blog/ for more information. This store will bring a smile to your face!

Bombers for my Budget













Everyday I get the www.thezoereport.com and I loved her blog today which features bomber jackets. I went to investigate which ones I would want to purchase at my budget. Therefore, I checked out Nordstrom, ASOS, Freepeople, Gap, Topshop, Zara, and Pixie Market.

I went and purchased the Bunny Bomber Jacket. No, not because I'm juvenile, but I like quirky and funky stuff. Something with personality. Hope it fits! It was purchased from Pixie Market.

Jewelry Come True!




My Jewelmint jewelry came in. I was about to cancel my membership until I saw that they collaborated with one of my favorite designers, Erin Fetherston. Her style is so romantic and feminine! I bought a few rings and bracelets with my credit. I love that most of her jewelry is rose gold. I love rose gold! Check out a picture of my decorated hand!

French Fish




I am attracted to anything French and shiny. Maybe you can call me the French Fish. Anyhow, my latest crave is Kate Spade's Paris and the Single Girl clutch. I already have the New York Journal that I looooove. However, I wish I could grab the Great Expectations Clutch that's is sold out. Only place to mostly find it is on Ebay. Kate Spade's clutches and accessories are made of high quality. They are plated with real gold so it last longer. I still get compliments on my KS wallet til this day! You can buy it on www.nordstrom.com or www.katespade.com.

Fun Photo Play



Here's another photo I played with at www.befunky.com. Here, I focused on her clutch and made her pinkish! Her cute dress is by Tildon!

Be Funky!




Today I found a new website called www.befunky.com. This is so cool for people who don't have photoshop or who are not photoshop savvy. It can turn your photos into being vintage and duotone. I love this since I'm a graphic designer. I never tried this application on my iphone or ipad, but I think it'll work. It also connects to www.facebook.com, www.pinterest.com, and https://twitter.com/ You can also download straight to your computer! This is an awesome website! Check it out when you can! Here is a photo that I played around with from www.jcrew.com. It's a cute Hula Girl Classic Linen slippers that are going for $400.00. I love hula girls, so I had to touch this photo up. Have fun with www.befunky.com! Also grab a pair of this great slippers before the sell out!

My Pick of Scarves





I'm into scarves now since I'm getting ready to go to NY and Hawaii is also getting brrrr cold. Yes, Hawaii. It's 60+ and we are shivering in Paradise. I'm waiting for it to snow at least once since Mauna Kea had some big snowfall! heehee. Anyhow, I tried the Ralph Lauren one in the leopard print. It's nice, price is reasonable, and light. A nice alternative to a person who a person who doesn't like all leopard and pay Louis Vuitton's price. Another cozy little scarf is Nordstrom Brand. Again, it's leopard, but it's 100% cashmere. Super soft and on sale now!! I also just bought today a hankerchief/bandana/scarf from J.Crew. Nice art of fishes and pretty colors. No, this isn't for me, but my son who's fascinated with fish! I may just frame that one! It's also on sale too! It's 100% Cotton.

Lowering Cholesterol

 LOWERING CHOLESTEROL
I'm getting to that age where I need to look after my diet and live to any old age (grandma is 96!). I found this video by Dr. Stork. I adore him! Love his videos! Check out this video on what to eat to lower your cholesterol which can lead to heart disease if it's high.

Mumuku Shuttr




I just purchased this Mumuku Shuttr from Amazon which I can't wait to get! Now I don't have to include my arms in my picture or have weird angles! I can also include myself in group shots. It comes in white, black, and red. Hopefully I will get better pictures up on this blog soon! Yay!!!

Retro Sneakers



After reading some blogs, I've bought 2 pairs of retro sneakers. One is from Nike and the other from New Balance 410. I'm not sure which to keep. I can't keep two with my minimal budget and saving up for NY! They're both cute to me. But it looks like Nike is selling out. Maybe Nike...

Kokeshi Dolls

I know it's late, but I had a hard time finding Kokeshi dolls in honor of Girl's Day. My local store, Shirokiya's did not have a wide selection this year. I guess I'll check out the Momoji dolls on Ebay and this cute hula set from Shop Toast!

My Dream Scarf!

In about 2 months I'll be heading to New York for my first time. Can't wait to see SOHO, Kate Spade, Marc Jacobs, and Rebecca Minkoff stores to name a few. First time I can wear my Uggs without feeling out of place (in Hawaii) and scarves! The picture above is my dream scarf by Gucci. It has a cool fur trim on it. The woman in this picture probably has no idea that everyone loves her street style but I love her outfit! What do you think?
