Hawaii, aka The Food Tour. Part II North Shore

Next on the Hawaii (food) tour is the North Shore! After a few days in the busier area of Honolulu, the North Shore was a great retreat. There aren’t as many “popular” food options like in Waikiki, but there are definitely a few well-known stops; Giovanni’s, Ted’s Bakery, Matsumoto to name a few. Others tend to be a bit more stumble-upon than these guys that will appear at the top of your Yelp searches. Prepare yourself for more delicious looking pictures!

My Nightly Skincare Routine

There are only a few products that I’m truly, truly loyal to. One of them is Neutrogena’s Oil-Free Acne face wash. I remember my mom using it when I was younger all the time, always wondering what that weird word (acne) meant. I wish I didn’t know now, ha. My mom has always been a huge advocate for skincare, which is probably why she looks like she’s ten years younger than she is. That all being said, I’ve found a new face wash.

Afternoon Tea at The Rotunda

When I started asking around for ideas of things to do with my little sister when she came to visit, one of the most repeated was taking her to afternoon tea at The Rotunda inside Neiman Marcus in Union Square, SF. I kept it as a surprise for her, and asked her to pick out a dress on Rent the Runway and bring some cute shoes. She shrieked with excitement and said OK!!! Like her big sister, any opportunity to dress up is absolutely welcome. Continue reading “Afternoon Tea at The Rotunda”
