To the asshole who stole my skincare subscription box: I hope you’re allergic to $100 worth of plant-based moisturizers!
I apologize if you knew me and my brown chola lip liner in the 90s!
Even the trio of babies having a crying contest throughout our entire 5-hour flight couldn’t break my aloha spirit (they really tried, though!).

We stumbled upon the greatest food truck ever in a Walgreen’s parking lot (@ Leonard’s Bakery Malasada Truck)
I’ve had malasadas in LA before, but they don’t even compare to the pillowy deliciousness that is Leonard’s. This was my most favorite thing I ate during the entire trip… even better than the garlic butter shrimp we waited two hours for at Romy’s! The mango gummy bears from Lin’s Hawaiian Snacks were a very close second.

The scenic drive up the coast to North Shore was such a welcome contrast to the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. It felt like we were in Kauai again!
I tasted the Obama rainbow and it was presidential AF (@ Waiola Shave Ice)
It’s a well known fact that drinks taste better when served inside a pineapple (@ Diamond Head State Monument)
Pops went parasailing for the first time at 67-years-young (@ Xtreme Parasail). Pammie rode tandem, while I just came along for the boat ride and the shirtless captain.
Hawaii is three hours behind LA, yet I still never woke up early enough to see the sunrise! Ha. I did catch this sweet sunset every night, though (@ Prince Waikiki)
Did you even go to the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet if you didn’t leave with a karate kid drum???

Cheers to a great (and safe) trip! Till next time, Hawaii!
