My appreciation for vintage thingz has been passed along from my mum and dad who love thrifting on the regular. They collect Hawaiiana and other memorabilia and so I’ve spent a chunk of my childhood perusing thrift stores all over the place.

When my friend Shea Diaz decided to finally make the move from California to Hawai’i and open her quaint little storefront in the Old Waialua Sugar Mill, I was beyond thrilled for her new venture. Hawai’i needs more vintage. There’s so much treasure to be discovered! So much culture!

So if you love hand-picked goodies that’ll take you back in time and give you all the vintage feelz, you have to check out her store BUENOS DIAZ! Open Saturdays 10am-3pm … and stay on her IG as she often posts her gems to be sold directly: @buenosdiazvintage :)

'Paradise Found' - Issa de' Mar Summer 2017 Campaign, Maldives

There's nothing better than working with friends.
A beautiful thing happened in the Maldives when a girl's trip turned into a spontaneous campaign shoot ... clear blue water and bikinis are life ... and to be able to create images in tropical destinations alongside my best friends is my life dream realized. :)

Model: Malia Murphey (@maliamurphey)
Creative Direction: Melissa Jasniy (@aseaofpeople)
Brand: Issa de' Mar (@issademar)

Pick up the current collection here: ISSA DE' MAR . COM

My heartbeat

I never want to forget what inspires me. What inspired me. What I aspire to be inspired by ... 

These are so important to me because they were the beginning of my quest to make Tahiti a destination in my life. X

. . . + then of course the merge of surf + fashion

I just love looking at editorials, so many feels X

Island Hopping: Hawai'i Island

Reef's #justpassingthrough mantra continues on in my own personal life, even if it's simply taking a 45 minute plane ride to an outer island . . .
My bestie Cassandra (@cassandrarull) and I took a couple of days off, hopped on a short flight, and met up on the Big Island of Hawai'i (also known as Hawai'i Island). Our plan was to have no plan -- simply enjoying an adventure, open to what may come our way as we passed through from one side of the island to the other. 

With our Reef shoes and sandals in tow, we got to see so much in a short amount of time and wanted to share what we did on our mini getaway:

PLACES WE ATE: 'Ulu at Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, Big Island Brewhaus & Tako Taco Taqueria, Golden Goat in Pahoa, Tex’s Malasadas

THINGS WE DID: Take the Hamakua Coast Road Trip from Kona to Hilo, Have a drink at Beach Tree Bar in Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, Zipline through the forest with Kohala Zipline, go hiking, explore the beaches, Boiling Pots in Hilo

WHAT WE PACKED: Reef shoes + Sandals, GoPro, Camera equipment, One Teaspoon denims, Cassandra Rull bikinis, A.Wattz jewelry

Issa de' Mar Summer 2016 Sneak Peek

I may be biased because two of my best friends in the entire world are the women behind ISSA DE' MAR, but truly they are the most functional suits I've found for surfing + other water activities outside of sitting pretty on the sand.

This is a sneak of their 2016 Summer collection which literally makes me die of cuteness. Stripes? Cheetah print? Palms? I cannot even.

Don't forget to give Issa a follow on IG: @issademar for more bikini radness :)

There's a new boutique hotel popping up in Waikiki and we're kind of obsessed. Not only is the Surfjack hotel vintage-cool, but it came at the perfect time ... Because Waikiki is our stomping grounds for summer swells + summer scenes ...
[ give them a follow on instagram: @thesurfjack ]

I teamed up with the masterminds behind BikiniBird, model goddess Malia Murphey, + fabulous hair/makeup lady Jasmine Mullins on an editorial. You can find all of these hot bikinis at Hope you enjoy these images ...
