DIY Halloween: Where's Waldo

Need a quick costume? How about Where's Waldo! 

Such a fun, cute and easy costume to put together. For my version I found this red and white striped tank top at the Goodwill which is perfect for the warm nights we are still having here in California. I paired it with a red beanie, clear lens glasses, blue skinny jeans and brown wedges. Awesome right? 

The best part of this costume is being allowed to photo bomb everyone's pictures!

Mauna Kea Summit, Big Island, Hawaii

From the beach to beanies all in one day! Mauna Kea Summit is the highest point on the entire Island of Hawaii and one of the best places to star gaze in the entire world. We drove up the over 13,750 ft elevation to watch the sunset. This will definitely go down in the list of most romantic things we have done. This place is another reason why you should rent a 4x4 vehicle for your big island visit, you can not make it to the top with out it. You can take tour buses, but its pretty expensive. We first stopped at the visitor center then made our way to the top....it was freezing! Being that high above the clouds is a feeling I will never forget. We cranked the heater in the jeep and watched the sunset as if it were a drive in movie. Once it is dark, you witness the most incredible view of the stars. There are some huge telescopes up at the top, but none of which are accessible to the public. Park Rangers will not allow you to stay very long once it is dark because the road back down is very tricky. You can head back to the visitor center to continue star gazing and use the telescopes there to find constellations and planets. On our way down we spotted the red glow of the Volcano in the distance. Overall, this was an unforgettable experience and I would highly recommend it for anyone visiting the Big Island.

Feel free and comment any questions you have!

Fall Booties

Fall is here and it is time to whip out the boots! My particular favorite type of boot is the bootie. Due to my extremely tall stature (I'm totally lying, I'm only 5ft tall) the shorter the boot the better. Booties can seriously be paired with anything. Dresses, skinny jeans, skirts and overalls are just a few pairing you should totally try out. I live in booties and I am so excited to wear mine every day. 

Here are some pairs that I am totally lusting after right now:

Waipio Valley, The Big Island of Hawaii

On the North East side of The Big Island lies the most beautiful place I have ever laid my eyes on. Waimea County is a lush area of the island that can brag about having Waipio Valley in its area. 
While researching for our trip, I found an amazing photo of Waipio Valley that instantly became my computer background. It made the reality of finally being there so much more special. You can drive right up to the look out and enjoy the view, but if you are feeling a little more adventurous, you can also go into the valley, which reaches the sacred beach of an ancient Hawaiian Princess. We had our 4x4 Jeep Wrangler to take the trek. You can walk, but I would not recommend it. It is very long and very steep. We played good samaritan on the way up and gave some hikers a lift up. Plan to spend some time on the black sand beach. We found a distant water fall we attempted to hike to, but there was an area where you had to ditch your stuff and swim. We just were not prepared to leave all of our stuff, so we snapped some pics as close as possible. Waipio Valley was absolutely breath taking and a must see on The Big Island

We spent the rest of our day venturing down the island to Hilo. On the way we stopped by 2 waterfall spots, Akka Falls and Rainbow Falls.


Overall we had an amazing day of adventuring through the all of the tropical landscape that The Big Island has to offer.
