From where I stand…

I’d say, “wouldn’t you like to take a dip?” But the water isn’t the cleanest thing here in Hawaii Kai. Once in a while, you’d see some stand-up paddlers roaming the marina…and tourists of course. I took this a few days ago with my iPhone and used an HDR filter to give it some pop. I’ve been spending my work days in Hawaii Kai lately and I’ve fallen in love with my neighborhood all over again. I’m finally seeing HK developing its own culture. For example, we have live music on Fridays at Island Brew Coffeehouse, on the weekends at Cha Cha Cha Salsaria and Roy’s. A weekly farmer’s market at Kaiser High School on Saturdays and an upcoming Christmas boat parade on Dec. 15th. Ahhh community building at its best. Now all we need is a bar/lounge that is cheaper than Roy’s but a teensy bit more upscale than The Shack.

As always, here are some random moments from this week >>>

I’d say I’m a quirky kinda girl, black and white looks good with anything, right? It’s actually chilly out so leggings + a cardigan are required this weekend. I never wear these green leggings. But they’ll do for work today.

My brother upped the ante on the green today. He’s just returned back to Guam from his golf tournament in Thailand. My mother emailed me a photo of what he wore today. He’s got balls to rock hot pink with lime green! You won’t miss this fearless, neon chamaole on the golf course.

Lastly, I scoured Barnes & Noble for the latest issue of Hi-Fructose. One of my fave artists Audrey Kawasaki is featured and her latest artwork filled a five-page spread. Follow her on Instagram for more of her seductively striking work.
