We’ve all got that one thing that drives us bananas. Or at least I do. I just turned 37 and a mother to a toddler. I have always had forehead creases and it just seemed to keep getting worse. I decided to take action into my own hands and get botox for the very first time. I’m not going to lie, I was that person that hated on the people that did get it and thought botox made you look “plasticky”. (And no, botox does not make you look plasticky)
Can you believe the holidays are here!? Time is flying by and I wish it would slow down a bit. We just got back from Japan a few weeks ago and it was seriously one of our best trips! Traveling with a toddler isn’t always the easiest, especially an international trip! We were so afraid because of how long the flight was, but thank goodness she was so well behaved and all the activities I brought kept her busy. (I have to thank Melissa & Doug removable sticker books and their water and color pads) We found an unreal deal to Japan on Air Asia for $298 RT! Yes, you heard that right.
I don’t know what it is with Kaia these days, all she wants to do is eat snacks! When it comes to sitting in her highchair for a meal, it literally is a struggle. I had to google this to see if this was normal toddler behavior and it sure was. (They are claiming their independence right now supposedly…) Ok, now when will this phase end, because I want to pull my hair out when it comes to meal time?! Do any of you other mama’s have this problem? If so, what are some of your tips and tricks to make your toddler eat? Please share with me.
When I married Kenji almost 6 years ago, we decided not to have a lavish wedding ceremony and instead, we opted to elope and travel to South America for a whole month. It was the best decision we could have made! My only regret… there was never any wedding photos to show our future kids.
After celebrating our 5-year anniversary this past December and with a beautiful daughter, Kaia who will be 2 next month, I wanted to surprise him with a special vow renewal. We planned a getaway to Kauai (we stayed at Kuku’iula and it was one of the most amazing places!) for an early Father’s Day trip and I decided to surprise him then. I wanted this to be as intimate and special as possible with just the three of us. There was no fancy resort. No fancy dress. No upgraded ring. Just us surrounded by love and something we will remember for a lifetime with our daughter.
Happy Aloha Friday everyone!! The other day I did a special blog post over on Spyder’s website and just wanted to share a tid bit from it. We are taking our first international trip to Tokyo with Kaia in a few months and I shared why it’s important to travel with her and some rules we make as a family when it comes to traveling. We’ve been traveling with her since she was two months old, but never farther than Utah, so I’m anxious to see how this trip will go, mainly just the flight! I’ve already ordered some great toddler toys for the airplane that I hope will keep her occupied till we absolutely need to break out the iPad. (If you recommend any toys great for long flights, please comment on this post or e-mail me. Your tips are greatly appreciated).
It is said that motherhood is the toughest job on the market, but the most rewarding. It is the job/title many of us yearn for. There are so many things that come with motherhood that many of us are unaware of until it happens.

If you were watching our Instagram stories yesterday, you saw that I hosted a really fun happy hour with my fellow blogger friends in Waikiki. How cute was our setup by the way? Everyone at the beach wanted to join our party for sure! As some of us are mom’s, it was definitely a treat to enjoy a sunset “wine-down” and no better place in the world with a view of Diamond Head. Ocean Spray Mocktails were the perfect drinks to set the tone for the evening as they are inspired by some of our favorite cocktails like Sangria, Bellini and Tropical Citrus.
