Becoming A Fiancé

December 31, 2018

This is a day I want to relive 1,000 times again.  Before our Holiday trip, Rashawn told me he had a surprise for me in Florida. We were already planning to spend New Years Eve in Miami so I immediately thought the big surprise would be a concert. As our Miami adventure got closer I was getting more and more excited for what ever the big surprise was.

SALT WATER GOODS ✨

After what seems like forever (and a day) I have finally launched SaltWaterGoods. If you have been following me for any stretch of time you might have seen me bring it up once or twice then  *crickets*.  To be honest, I was just so scared! What if you guys hate it - what if no wants it - what if, what if what if....

22 Things You Learn At 22

Tomorrow marks my 23rd journey around the sun. I feel so weird about this age - and I can’t really tell you why other than the fact it makes me feel grown. 22 was all about having fun and learning to live with an attitude of gratitude. I embarked on a year of unknowns, travels, and learning a lot more than I bargained for!

Everything You Need to Know About UH Manoa

Back in 2013 I made the life changing decision to go to the University of Hawaii at Manoa. My decision to come here was pretty easy. I was recruited to swim for the D1 program here, and knew I wanted to go to a school by the beach. After a few trips to Florida and one to Hawaii -- the decision was effortless. Over the next 3 years I got to have one of the most unique college experiences.

The University of Hawaii

So what is it really like to go to school in Hawaii. Are classes really on the beach and do people actually major in surfing?? Well—if you are into things like Marine Biology, which is a very popular choice here, then yes sometimes class really can be at the beach! We do have surf clubs and excursions but for actually studying you’ll have to stick to the basics ;)

College Athlete

Growing up, it was common to hear, "I can't I have swim practice" coming from my friends and I. I always smelled like chlorine and may have been guilty of wearing a CAC shirt to school everyday. But, swimming was one of the biggest blessings in my life.

How To Carve A Pineapple

Carving a Pumpkin is my favorite Halloween tradition, but because this is the last Hawaiian Halloween I'll have I had to add a tropical spin. Carving a pineapple is much easier than a pumpkin! To start you need less supplies, just a few bowls, a knife, and a spoon will do. Cut the top off just as you would a pumpkin.

Smile Brilliant

By now, if you know anything about me it's probably that I'm a super smiler. I consider my smile to be my best accessory, I mean I take it everywhere! ;) Because it is so important to me, it's crucial I take care of it the best way possible. In the past I tried Crest White Strips, Baking Soda toothpaste, and some not so helpful DIY strategies to make my teeth sparkle but nothing has compared to the results I got with Smile Brilliant!

Dear Mom and Dad

This post is dedicated to my loving parents. I wanted to say Happy Mothers Day to my Mommy and Happy Birthday to my Daddy! Last year the two got to share the day when Mother's Day was on the 10th!

Los Angels Lakers vs. Utah Jazz

Living in Hawaii, the opportunity to see any professional sports team is always slim so when I heard that the Lakers were retuning to Hawaii you can imagine the excitement! The Lakers used to come to Hawaii every year since 1998 for their one week long training camp and few preseason opener games. However due to the large cost the team has not come since 2007. It's such a treat they decided to come back this year!

First Date

I deep down knew that the first few times I saw Rashawn I was going to be with him. I don't know if it was love at first sight persay but, I was pretty drawn to him. First I mean look at that killer smile! How can you resit it? But besides that Rashawn is the first person that I have genuinely felt like myself with. Of course that took time and trust to build up, but he is the first person to break down all of my walls.
