INSANELY BEAUTIFUL

Hello lovlies

The title I use in this post describes all the natural beauty Oahu has to offer.

I had high expectations for the day tour I booked to see Oahu and it did not disappoint. Since I was in Oahu for such a short period of time, a tour worked as it allows you to get a beautiful glimpse of the island while bookmarking all the many places to see more of. The next time and there will be a next time, I’ll be sure to hire a car and go see all my favourite scenic spots.

Love this post if you love these amazing photographs.

PLAYFUL

Hello there

So during my trip to the Waikele Premium outlet I managed to pick up a new pair of coral heels and long strap handbag.

It didn’t seem fair if I didn’t take my new items out for a spin in my playsuit around town so before our much anticipated Luau tour thats just what I did.

I love these photos.  Credits to my friend Somany for the amazing photography.

THE GOOD LIFE

Hello gorgeous

Since I have committed to not purchasing any new clothing this year, I packed a little heavier than usual for my trip to Hawaii.

That said my luggage was full of comfortable items that I knew I would have to wear over and over again during this trip. So if you notice some clothes overlapping in my next few posts it’s just me being creative with what was in my luggage.

On this very day, my friend and I headed to the Waikele Premium outlet for some bargain shopping. I have to say I found it to be quite underwhelming but managed to score some cute items for my little girl. The Godiva shop there is just devine and I couldn’t help but indulge in a cone full of strawberries dipped in dark chocolate. Certainly a must go to place for all travellers.

Post shopping we grabbed a bite and drink, then spent the late afternoon relaxing on Waikiki beach. If this could be a part of my life everyday I would be completely satisfied.

Hello gorgeous

I have recently come home from a whole seven days in paradise without my little family!

Agreed that taking a holiday with your friend instead of your family is not everyones idea of a relaxing holiday but it was a simple decision that my husband and I agreed on months before I returned to work earlier this year. That is, I would take time off while hubby looked after our little angel and vice versa. We both felt that it would be healthy for all of us. Trust me, I know how extremely fortunate and lucky I am to have this just work for us. As my friend mentioned on the trip – your husband is one in a million.

On the trip, we spent most of our time in Waikiki and both had so much fun finding it to be one of the best trips. During the day it would be a little time to relax then go, go, go and in the evening before dinner, I would Skype home to check in, say hi and good night to my little one.

There was so much to love about Oahu. The kind people, strong cocktails, warm weather, gorgeous beaches, blue water, green flora and never ending amount palm/coconut trees in full view. To my surprise, I found Waikiki to to be unbelievably family friendly with late sunsets, space for prams, kid friendly menus and loads of water activities to keep the little ones occupied.

Independence day happened to be our final day in Hawaii and my friend and I decided to do not much except hang around with the locals and lay under palm trees at Ala Moana Beach Park. The day ended with a fireworks spectacular which was amazing. It was the most wonderful way to top of our trip. We didn’t however look forward to our 3.45am wake up call for the flight home the next day.

Until next time.. and next time, the whole family will be going.

Thanks for reading. xxx

A CELEBRATION

I will forever remember this very day. My friend and I had a full day with the locals at Ala Moana beach park. We did sweet nothing but lay around, listen to some close by tunes and people watch until the evening fireworks bonanza.

LIFES A BEACH

Hello sweets

Thanks for coming by.

These pictures were taken on my recent trip to Waikiki Hawaii. As you can see from these photographs I really made the most the time I had to relax. The water there is so gorgeous and blue so going in for a swim and splash is an absolute must. Beach beds and umbrellas are readily available for hire on the beach so you can sunbathe all day long if thats your thing. The hire rates are extremely reasonable and there are hotties there to set it all up for you. All they ask is that you pick a spot.

The patterned bathing suit in these pictures are quite old and purchased during my pre pregnancy days. I never thought I would be wearing them again since I gained over 20 kilos during my pregnancy.  However here I am embracing my post baby body in paradise.

TEA TIME

Hello lovely

After some early morning sunbathing on Waikiki beach, I got dressed in a relaxed fringed t-shirt dress and headed to the Ala Moana Beach House restaurant for some afternoon high tea, where we were given the best seat in the house. This white Miami t-shirt dress happened to be the fanciest item I had packed for the holidays and worked a treat since the dress code in Waikiki is extremely relaxed. I paired the t-shirt dress with my everyday (literally everyday) boots and an oversized bag. Not to forget my new Balmain sunglasses scored at my recent Waikele Premium outlet venture.
