Formerly known as The Contemporary Museum, The Honolulu Museum of Art’s Spalding House, is hidden under shady trees in Makiki. Kevin and I drove up to see the new exhibits and unfortunately, the main exhibit section was under construction. We opted to grab a snack at the café downstairs. I had a cup of the tasty vegan tomato soup and he had the flourless chocolate cake.

Once we cleaned our cup and plate, we walked through the garden and took a peek at the soon-to-be completed outdoor surfer exhibit. The artist replaced the tennis court with his version of the ocean and all things surfers encounter in the water.

Admission is free on Saturdays. I highly suggest calling to see if the exhibits are completed before you go…unless you’re only up for a bite to eat.

Fashion Blogger: GABIFRESH

(All images: GABIFRESH)

I’m so inspired by fashion blogger GabiFresh! My good friend Jenna Hall introduced me to her blog because she’s curvy, classy and so darn cute! This is a great blog to draw some inspiration for our plus-size island girls. GabiFresh showcases her outfits of the day, her travels and the latest designs for plus-size fashions.

I love how she promotes women who are naturally big and beautiful. Another thing I like about her is that she leads such a glamourous life but she’s also real and practical. Take her Default post, for example. Everything she’s wearing is affordable and most of them are from Forever21!
