Hey guys its me Haunani. Yesterday there was a huge north swell so i decided to check out the waves near home. I grew up surfing on the east side and I still get stoked to surf with friends near home. Thanks for the video bruddah Cliff!!
Every saturday I always make an effort to hangout on the north shore.
And this past saturday I did exactly that. I hung out with some of my favorite people, surfed, ate, relaxed, and did some crafts on the beach. We also sported our lovely Crush glasses while we were sewing ;)
So its not as easy as I thought it was going to be. Stone is my favorite little baby but he is still not used to being away from Daddy and Mommy just yet. When I watched him recently the whole hour he just cried and cried! I didn't know what to do! I felt horrible, but his cute little smiled returned just as Dad came walking through the front door. : ]
I bought this yukata for Stone when I was in Japan this past summer.
Hey Girls, how's your lovely Monday going? I just wanted to show you guys my jewelry that I make. Reverie means to be lost in a day dream, and this is the name of my company :] Check out the photos and let me know what you think. And if you really like my stuff add me on Facebook! It's Reverie Oahu, aloha, alyssa.....
Hey Girls! What's up? I am stoked to start blogin! Hope everyone's weekends went wonderfully! I was fortunate enough to surf! I was out at Ehukai, the water was a little brown, but still a lot of fun. I wanted to post some photos of my friend Kori and I from our adventure to a secret salt water pool. Kori and I both make jewelry and we recently had a sale, I'll post those photos up soon as well.
I always make time for surfing! I surf on a Wavestorm (for those who dont know what that is, it's a foam borad from costco). Its been good to me for 3+ years now, and I don't plan on riding anything else.
I also make clothes for fun- I mainly sew dresses, since i love wearing dresses.
The last hobby that I must do everyday is work out- turbo kick box, cycling, zumba, and running! I dont think i could stop exercising, I always feel good after working out.
How did you get into sewing/fashion design?
I started my sophomore year of college (19 years old), when i saw a really cute dress and had to have it, but i couldn't get it so i went above and beyond to make it (even though i did not have a clue on how to sew). Over the spand of two months I bought a machine and cut up my old clothes to make things. I continued sewing since then, and loved it so much I decided to go to school for it (my good friend tara was taking fashion design at Uh and told me about it).
What is your favorite surf spot?
On kauai- Pakalas! I've caught the longest left of my life there (i am a regular foot). This past summer, my best friend and i would wake up at 5 am to surf this spot before anyone else. It is definitely a dream wave. I surf rock piles a ton on oahu, its a fun left, and Ive made a few friends out there, so its made that place a fun break to surf at.
If im feeling fancy, i eat at California Pizza Kitchen- my favorite things on the menu are- the waldorf chicken salad, carne asada pizza, and chocolate sufle. But I do share it with a friend, I dont usually eat all that, I promise :S
The colors of a sunset :)
What is your ideal career?
I want to be a stay at homemaker. I want to be my own boss, create things, and sell them!
How did you find out about Crush Sunglasses?
Since I am from kauai, I find a lot of things on the internet. The first time I heard of Crush was through myspace! I loved the whole vibe of Crush- Cruz girls, rocking sick sunglasses, and surfing.
What do you LOVE about Crush Sunglasses?
I love the glasses for sure! I have a few pairs, and I love them! They are perfect for my lifestyle, since I am always out doors, going surfing, hanging out at the beach, walking from class to class, these glasses protect my eyes and they are way cute.
Describe your perfect pair of sunnies!
BIG black box frames, with black lenses.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I see myself hopefully doing exactly what I am doing now! But hopefully I will be married by then too.
