Hawaii’s Haunted Plantation

I am a jumpy person.  I don’t know why, I just am!  So you can imagine that I must not like Haunted Houses.  😦

However, for those of you on Oahu who like this sort of thing, you’ve got to check out the Haunted Plantation in Waipahu.

I THINK THAT’S PRETTY FREAKY.  Omg.  If you’re not convinced, check out this video of people’s reactions.  OMG.

The Haunted Plantation has been featured on the Travel Channel and SyFy, which is pretty neat, I think!  Tickets start at $15 and it’s open from now till Halloween.  Have a good time!


Pashmina Love


Pashmina Infinity Scarf ($45) – Scarf Obsession

Is it getting cooler in your part of the world?  It’s still a mild…85 in Hawaii…….but they’ve started to bring out the autumn/winter ads.  Leather boots, thick jackets, scarves!  I’m so jealous.  I would love for the weather to be cool enough for me to need a scarf……particularly a Pashmina Scarf.

“Pashmina” refers to a certain type of cashmere wool.  I’ve always thought that the actual scarf was called a “pashmina” but nope.  I absolutely love that blue/burnt orange one from Scarf Obsession’s Etsy Shop.  *sigh*  Definitely on my wishlist.

BTW, does it remind you guys of an obi?  Maybe that’s why I like it so much.

Vintage Obi ($41) – TokyoModern

(Random fact of the day about me: I used to collect vintage Japanese Obis!  Mainly because I went to a vintage obi sale in Harajuku and walked away with a bunch at a super good deal.  They make awesome Christmas presents.  It was a pain to bring home though–all that silk is heavy!)


October 2012 Birchbox: Goop

October 2012 Birchbox – Goop

  • Lulu Organics Lavender + Clary Hair Powder
  • Luna Bar
  • Karuna Hydrating Treatment Mask
  • Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre (24 Hour Miracle Cream)
  • Naked Princess Naked Shine Luscious Lip Gloss

So.  What did you guys get?  My favorite things are the mask and the Luna Bar.  I’m a bit torn.  I feel somewhat jilted, because the samples look so small!  On the bright side, they’ll all be super useful for when I travel.  Where else would I get small tiny packets of hair powder?  Or a really good mask for my 10 hour flight?  Thank you Birchbox!

…Or perhaps I just feel a bit jilted because the October 2012 Glam Bag looked way way way more enticing.  PLUS you get a bag!

P.S. That eyeliner and mascara are theBalm products.  Maybe I should pick up a MyGlam/Ipsy subscription for myself for Christmas?  😀

October 2012 Glam Bag. (I’m J)

Ridiculous Bags from Jump From Paper

Happy Friday!  Let’s look at something fun to kick start the weekend.

Crazy, isn’t it?

Believe it or not…that bag is REAL.  It looks like someone photoshopped a cartoon bag on that picture.  I can’t seem to wrap my brain around it!

Meet the Cheese! Bag from the Taiwanese-based company, Jump From Paper.

Cheese!  ($99) – Jump From Paper

That’s definitely a head turner. Right now, I’m imagining walking down the path at Ala Moana…I’d definitely look twice if I saw someone with it.  It looks roomy enough to tote your iPad around in it.

Now, if it Orange School Bag isn’t your thing, check out this cute suitcase for travel!

Travel Ready ($109) – Jump From Paper

My favorite has got to be this one:

First Date ($89) – Jump From Paper

Hmm…Looks like Jumps from Paper only ships to US addresses at the moment.  It’s so different!  I’ve never seen anything like it.

Have a Happy Aloha Friday!

DIY: Heart in _____

You guys know I’m totally in love with those Heart in (Insert your State Here) prints.  So when I saw this on Pininterest, I knew it was my next DIY!  Or an early-start Christmas present.  You can never be too early for Christmas presents, right?

The Harpster Home – Heart in Ohio DIY

Yay for fellow WordPress blogs!  All you need are a small wooden board, paint, a hammer and nails, some string, and lots and lots of patience.

I am slightly dreading having to hammer in each of the islands (Interesting fact of the day: There are 8 major islands in the Hawaiian Island chain), but I know it’d look great on our wall.  Also, I’m fancying the idea of staining the wood a natural color and using a brightly colored string instead.

So, ready to get started?
