If you follow my Instagram or Snapchat, then you know I jetsetted to the West Coast for some much needed R&R, now I’m back and feeling better than ever. I had the most amazing time in Hawaii. Of course I have to PLUG you guys to the “must go’s” and “have to see” of Honolulu.
Where I slept: I stayed at two Marriott resorts; one in the heart of the city of Waikiki and the second one being the ever so picturesque Ko Olina. Both resorts were absolutely beautiful, but I LOVED Ko Olina! It was so lush and green, with pretty beaches that spanned far beyond what my eyes could see. A pool area which featured a grotto with a huge slide that would put Hugh Hefner’s to shame. Everything about our suite was A-1; from our granite counter tops, stainless steel kitchen appliances, to the convenient laundry room. Ko Olina is literally the perfect place to stay in Hawaii.
What I ate: In all honesty, I didn’t know what to expect of the food in Hawaii. In my mind, I thought I would eat Acai bowls all day and drink a fresh coconut which would be permanently attached to my hand (which I did). However; the food was AMAZING! I ate everything … literally! Hawaiian “donuts”, to the freshest sushi I ever had, to the tastiest tacos, and yummy cocktails. I’m sure you get the point; ALL the food in Hawaii was so good!
What I did: When I wasn’t lounging around by the pool or
tanning on the beach, I saw some of Hawaii’s famous tourist attractions. If you go to Hawaii, it is a must that you visit the historic grounds at Pearl Harbor. It was so surreal to stand on such sacred ground. Fun Fact: Oil from the explosion at Pearl Harbor still seeps out into the ocean to this day.
attempted to hike Diamond Head … wait who am I fooling, I had a mini photo shoot. However, if your feeling adventurous you should definitely hike it and let me know how it goes. LOL! I love music, especially live music… so if your like me, then the Blue Note Hawaii is right up your alley. I saw the group KING; those three ladies are super- talented. If you don’t know who they are please go to YouTube and take a listen. Blue Note is also in New York City so go check it out!
Hawaii was AMAZING and super relaxing! If you ever have the chance to go… go!
P.S. I’m super excited about my next posts, which will be a two-part beauty series! Woo- hoo!
Till next time..
Love and Light
