When I was planning my trip to Maui, I knew I wanted to see as much as possible. I always love renting cars when I travel because I think that’s the best way to see a place, so that’s what we did in Maui. Here are my recommendations! Where to Stay When I was in […]
When I travel, I always try to only bring a carry-on. I don’t like it when my bags aren’t with me, I don’t want to risk losing them, and it’s so much faster both at check in and when you land. But, of course, I can’t bring as many outfits with me. That means I have to be strategic with what I pack. I tend to go with dresses, simple/plain tops & shorts I can mix and match, and rompers.
When I was in Maui, the coolest and most special & memorable thing I did was get my spirit painted. Yes, you read that right. Someone painted my spirit! And I have to say, he nailed it. I first e-met Jonny Tanner, the spirit painter, when he emailed me a few weeks before my Maui […]
One of the most popular stops on the famous Road to Hana road trip is Twin Falls. Although we didn’t do the full road to Hana due to weather and limited time, we did make it to Twin Falls during our visit to Maui. Like I said, the weather wasn’t ideal, so I think some […]
This post is sponsored by Bacardi. All thoughts and opinions are my own. When you think of tropical drinks, what comes to mind? Most likely, it’s a rum-based drink, and that’s all I wanted during my time in Hawaii. So it would just make sense that I would partner with my fave, Bacardi, for my […]
One thing I did not to expect about Maui is how great the shopping is – and I mean the local shopping. Of course, they have all the designer stores in Wailea, but my favorite place to shop was in Paia. Paia is a cute little town on the northern coast of Maui. This town was the most authentically Hawaiian beach town I experienced in Maui. And I am all about the local life.
As you can imagine, I spent most of my time in Maui on a beach. We explored several different beaches during our time there, but there was one beach that was especially unique. It was near the town of Paia and as we ran towards the water, we noticed that those were not big rocks on the beach, but huge sea turtles. I couldn’t believe my eyes!
One of the absolute best things about being in a tropical destination is getting that beach glow. While I can’t deny that I did get a little bit of sun (yay!), I also had a secret weapon that I used on this trip – and I’m absolutely loving it. It’s Physicians Formula Butter Collection. I’ve shared before that I’ve been using Physicians Formula Bronzer since high school, but this new collection is my new favorite! Not only does it create that beachy, healthy glow, but this line actually smells like the beach.
When I went to Kauai at the beginning of the month, I was lucky enough to stay in three different places during our eight night Hawaii vacation. All three were very different. Since neither one of us had ever been to Kauai, we wanted to be sure to experience as much of the island as […]
