(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #219 – 85 Years of Hawaiian Airlines Flight Attendant Uniforms

Did you guys know that Hawaii has a Fashion Week? They didn't, but as of this year they do!  And it is going on right now. In Honolulu.  In fact, Courtney Taira who you met in my interview on Monday is there right now checking it out.  I think it would be cool to check. And when you are celebrating your 85th anniversary in the midst of that fun, you have to show off your own fashion sense.  … [Read more...]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #218 – Hawaiian Airlines’ 85th Anniversary

Next Tuesday is Hawaiian Airlines' 85th Anniversary! They are the second oldest U.S. airlines and in my opinion, one of the best! I had the pleasure of flying with Hawaiian Airlines for my trips in March and September and cannot say enough good things about them (although I have tried!). I normally don't post infographics (I leave that to my blogging pal Jennifer who always posts fascinating … [Read more...]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #217 – Missing Paris

It is not Jessica's fault, but I've been grounded for the last three months with two more to go, unable to travel anywhere.  That means I am going slightly stir crazy and as I work on my last Italy posts and prepare to begin France I am missing Paris big time. I was looking through my photos and remarked on this one.  A typical evening in the courtyard of the Louvre - there is a photo shoot … [Read more...]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #216 – An Italian Spritz

It is now summer in San Francisco. Happens every October. It will be warm (hot for me) and gorgeous until Halloween and then it will rain! Warm weather like we are having now makes me long for 'spritz's' which I drank many of on my trip to Italy.  Such a wonderfully refreshing drink that people have as an apero before dinner.  It is addictingly delicious! Here is a recipe from The Kitchn - I … [Read more...]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #215 – Jessica Update

Last time I wrote about Jessica it was the night before her second surgery. I have mainly been posting photos to Instagram which I sometimes share to Facebook and Twitter, but I thought I would just do a brief update here as well. Jessica had her surgery two weeks ago and she is supposed to have a new cast/bandage every week. It's been two weeks and she has had four! (Shown in the collage … [Read more...]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #214 – Pau Hana Market Waikiki

After a gallon of wine tasting with Colgin Cellars and Kermit Lynch I needed food!  Right around the corner from the Halekulani hotel where the wine events had taken place is a new food truck area called Pau Hana Market Waikiki.  Currently with seven trucks and more to come you, this food truck court offers a great way to sample the local Hawaiian food scene with ramen, loco moco and lunch plates … [Read more...]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #213 – Leonard’s Malasadas

My schedule was jammed pack for my weekend in Oahu (thanks to Hawaiian Airlines) to attend parts of the Hawaii Food and Wine Festival, but there was one thing I was adamant about doing: getting to Leonard's Bakery for Leonard's Malasadas. My Mom's side of the family is Portuguese and throughout my childhood on only a handful of occasions I would attend a family reunion or function in which my … [Read more...]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #210 – Kyoto Colors

There was so much red everywhere when I was in Kyoto, from time to time it was refreshing to see a pop of another color!  Granted, I know there is red in this photo, but I love the blue! How about you? What's your favorite color to "see?" … [Read more...]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #209 – Leoda’s Kitchen & Pie Shop

After a full day of farm tours, on my last evening in Maui driving back to the Napili Kai Beach Resort I hit up Leoda's Kitchen & Pie Shop for dinner (and dessert). I had that little voice in my head that prevented me from just eating [sweet] pie for so I ordered the Hamakua mushroom pie pictured above.  It was my last chance to have Hamakua mushrooms for who knows how long and I am glad I … [Read more...]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #208 – ONA Bags Interview

I am thrilled to be featured on the ONA Bags blog, check out my interview to learn a little more about me. I recently got a new camera, a Fuji X-E2 which is an awesome, light, portable camera, did I say awesome?  The first thing I purchased when I got the camera was my ONA Bag, an item I have been coveting it for a very long time!  I have the Bowery (you can see it pictured above) which is … [Read more...]
