Spring is probably one of my favorite seasons! The other day, we went to Kaia’s first Easter egg hunt and it was so much fun, but it was one of the hottest, muggiest days. We decided to go to one of our favorite parks up in the mountain, because it’s always so much cooler up there. It always reminds us of California up there. The crisp air, beautiful tall trees and a different ambience. Kaia only wanted to walk on the pavement and would cry every time she had to walk on the sticks. It was so funny! Now that the weather has been so beautiful, we had to bust out one of her crop top outfits- I mean how adorable is that outfit, and it’s GINGHAM! (I got it from Miss Molly June Designs. She’s got so many other prints!) It’s one of Spring’s hottest fashion trends right now that I even ordered a gingham dress. I will have to definitely get photos of us wearing the matching prints together. (Yes, I’m that mom!)
We recently caught up with the gorgeous mom of two, surfer and swimwear designer, Malia Jones on an exclusive interview with Island Fever Sisters! It’s no surprise she started her own swimwear brand that defines her effortless style where she was inspired by her island upbringing and travels around the world. Read our special interview with Malia Jones on how this surfer-turned model is making waves in the swim world:
BABY, FASHION, LIFESTYLE
With Mother’s Day coming up and experiencing my first as a new mommy, I wanted to share things that I’ve learned so far. Motherhood is a life changing experience. There is no book or class that could have prepared me for this role. Everything has been a trial and error and every day I’m learning how to become a better mother. We’ve really developed a great routine with Kaia and follow it the best we can. It’s been a great 7 months and wanted to share 10 things that I have learned as a new mom:
After visiting Florence for the first time, I knew I wanted more of this city and fell in love instantly. We were supposed to go to our family home in Sardinia, but after staying on the Amalfi Coast for almost 10 days, I had my fair share of being at the beach. (I know, island life problems, right?!) Living in Hawaii where our beaches are the most beautiful in the world, my husband and I decided to cancel Sardinia and go back to Florence.
Il Salviatino is the perfect, lovebird Tuscan getaway that isn’t just for fairy-tales. This luxurious, restored 15th-century villa lies on the hillside of Fiesole, with stunning, panoramic views of Florence. Set in lush Italian Gardens with Florence’s Duomo seen in the distance, you feel like you’ve just arrived on set of a romantic, historic movie setting with a modern vibe. Overlooking one of the most breathtaking cities in the world, while sipping a chilled sparkling wine, it almost felt like a dream, it was purely so magical.
