HUJIs from MALDIVES

2018 has had its fair share of fun times abroad, but my time in the Maldives with Turquoise Lane from West Australia definitely left a mark on my heart . . . If it's true that the Maldives may not be around forever, I suggest it make its way onto your bucket list because it truly is a magical place in this world.

iPhone Diaries: March 2017

If I had to sum the month of March up in one word, it'd be: OCEAN.
I got a lot of it, and how fitting as it is the month of Pisces. I don't think I've spent this much time at the beach since I was a wee lil grom, and I love it. The completely exhausted feeling that hits you after a long day on the beach -- there's nothing like it in the world, and I'll admit that I have to intentionally find those moments again, whereas they came so naturally growing up!

Here's to being a fish, turning 32 this month, and living a life of celebration every day no matter what.

My bike rides to check the surf from my house are my time to breathe, look up at these beauties, and find treasures on the beach ... a daily moment that is so, so precious to my sanity.

The one, the only, Makoa Ho came home for the month, so you can only imagine what kind of silly shenanigans we got into along the way. This one was for the books -- a perfect day of surfing at Makaha, followed by chasing the sunset up the coast + enjoying pau hana adult beverages with our fave west side friends.

Taking my buddies for a swim with the sharks is always a highlight for me. 

With all of the vog that lingered this month, gorgeous sunsets were the result, and so I cannot be mad.

Oh, and the moonrises as well?! Gosh . . .

Always being fueled up by the best at the beach ... Haleiwa Bowls + nature's candy :)

People think Hawaii is gorgeous year round, which it is, but sometimes you have to search a little deeper to find these picturesque moments. We had a really harsh rain this month, turning our oceans the color and consistency of chocolate milk ... but with a little driving + a lot of perseverance I had a dreamy tropical moment to myself. 

Next month I'll be abroad and I can't wait to share with you when I return ...

iPhone Diaries: February 2017

Well, according to my iPhone photo album feed, February was a very beautiful and colorful month ... aside from my struggles with the flu, my husband being abroad, and the occasional torrential downpours that kept us indoors, we found some epic moments along the way. I can't believe we're entering March so soon ... time is flying, but we're the pilots ;)

Picture-Perfect moments on our #goals weekend with @straitswim

This silly girl @leideee was swinging from vines and stuff for @straitswim, it was pretty legendary.

When @haleiwabowls saved our lives with a mid shoot pick-me-up!

Sunsets from the @straitswim brand house were just so peaceful . . .

More sunsets, aka my love language, this time from the be$t side ... Makaha (yea)

Followed by a little island hop to go see my bff @cassandrarull where we just had way too much fun in 24 hours!

 

Can't wait to see what March has in store ... X

iPhone Diaries: October 2016

As pivotal as October was for me professionally, emotionally, physically, it was also equally effortless. I attribute this ease to the balance of life ... slowly but surely learning to accept the good with the bad, relinquish control, enjoy the mundane, and find beauty wherever I go.

Breathe in peace, exhale anxiety . . . everything is just a gift. All of which I'm undeserving . . .
