Turning My Back

posted by on 2011.09.30, under Outfit Of The Day

Currently writing from our cosy patio overlooking the city of honolulu…

And this concludes our 7 day vacation here in paradise!

So for now i’m Turning My Back on the breathtaking clear blue ocean & warm breezy nights.

I must confess as much as I enjoyed myself these past 7 days..i am so ready to get back into the flurry of things!

So long Hawaii…hello Cali!

Hope you have a lovely weekend and see you guys back on the mainland!

The Last Single Moment

This week whirled by more quickly than expected..cant believe It’s our 2nd to last night here in paradise! I must confess I was starting to get used to this laidback Hawaii lifestyle….but soon enough there will be a change of pace and back to the LA hustle .

After a week long of breezy one pieces i’m now finally ready to transition back into layers upon layers, cashmere scarves , and soft cardigans.

Here are some images of me at our so called home in Hawaii for the past 7 days (the Kahala Resort). For now I will be soaking up every last single moment, here in paradise, before its gone….

Sunlit Daydreams & Saltwater Kisses

It’s been quite surreal…..the other day we went horseback riding along the coast of Hawaii to watch the sunset. My horsey’s name was Casper and he was the sweetest & most well behaved horses out of them all! It was a little tough at first to learn how to navigate Casper but soon enough Casper & I bonded and we were galloping along the sandy seashore.

I have to say it was quite magical & majestic and has been the highlight of our trip thus far! (If your coming to Hawaii I highly recommend in trying this & thank me later :P )

Our vacation seems to be tumbling along at a very fast pace and soon enough we will be back in LA….. so for now back to my Sunlit Daydreams and Saltwater Kisses.



Live By The Currents, Plan By The Tides

Aloha from the beautiful island of Oahu! I’m learning to love that feeling of having all the time in the world….

Nothing can compare to the feeling of toes in the sand with the intoxicating lure of the ocean. Yesterday we lounged around on our private beach at our resort then headed out to a Luau. Today we went horseback riding on the beach while watching the was possibly the most breathtaking experience ever. Being far from the city and close to nature has really been good for my mind & soul. I’m really feeling relaxed, refreshed, & rejuvented…sometimes everyone needs a reset button to be reinspired. “At the beach, life is different. Time doesn’t move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the currents, plan by the tides and follow the sun.”
