Big Changes: Hello.. and Goodbye [25% off Sitewide]

For the last several months, the hubby and I were contemplating moving ourselves and our business to California... My husband is originally from San Diego, and he has been throwing around the idea of moving back ever since I met him 4 years ago. I was always adamant about staying in Hawaii, so I never really took it seriously until recently...

Since our business grew in such a short amount of time, there were so many changes and sacrifices that we have had to learn to adapt to... working around the clock, finding new spaces to store inventory in our already small living space, cramming in meetings and photoshoots, and budgeting our time between the business, both of our other careers, and trying to live our daily lives.

After going back and forth about a million times in my head whether we should stay or go.. we have finally come to a decision...

We are now proud to announce that we will be relocating to sunny San Diego, California! Ahhhh!!!

I will be so so sad to leave my roots in Hawaii, but everything was telling me it was time to make some big changes, and I finally took the leap!

Hello San Diego =) ... and Goodbye Hawaii =(

**Our main base will still be in Hawaii, but we will now be shipping out from San Diego, CA

To lessen our load for moving day, we wanted to host a BIG SALE! Everything will be 25% off SITEWIDE!! Between Monday October 29th - Wednesday November 7th!


**We will not be shipping out any orders between Thursday November 8th through Thursday November 15th. All orders received during that period will be sent out Friday November 16th. Please note that Express Shipping will not be available during this time. 

Thanks so much!!

New Obsession: Black and White Horse Photography

I recently became fascinated.. well.. more like obsessed.. with horse photography, particularly in black and white!

I don't know what brought upon this new found obsession of mine, but I find horses to be so mysterious and almost like they are magical creatures.. I never took the time to notice. Living in Hawaii, I don't get to see any wild horses so it's just fascinating to me!

I came across the website which had nearly 1,500 black and white horse photographs! ahhh!! I literally went through each page of photos, pinning the ones that captured me. Some of them I wasn't able to pin.. probably because of copyright issues.. but I got 25 favorites out of the 1,482 to be exact! I created a pinboard just for this purpose! I know.. Im also a pin addict =P

Still on the hunt for more so I can narrow down my favorites to the ones I want printed =)

Here are a few:

Unique by Jeffrey Bake

Praise for the Morning by Katie Abrams
Storm Horse by Tammy Mckinley

Book Worm: 'The Last Templar' by Raymond Khoury

The last book fair I visited, I was on a mission to expand my reading horizons! I picked up a few books by authors that I wasn't too familiar with. They were all under $2 so what did I have to lose!

I loved Dan Brown's 'Da Vinci Code' and 'Angels and Demons', so I thought I would get this book in the hopes that it would be similar.


It has the similarities to Dan Brown's 'Da Vinci Code' with many historical references and also a religious spin, which made it a little uncomfortable to read at times because it questions the foundation of Christianity, which I thought came off a bit harsh at times. I got confused whenever the story went back into time, like a reminiscing of sorts, so I had to go back and refresh my memory about who was who.

Although it was a bit hard to read, it did carry a good momentum throughout which kept me going. The chapters are all very short, the structure of a James Patterson book, which helps. And also, I wanted to find out what the heck they were searching for!

The 'love story' that came about in this book was a bit dry and I didn't feel the connection, but I realized why it was thrown in there. It just seemed necessary.

Overall, if you are a Dan Brown fan, you would probably enjoy this read =)

There are I think two other books to this series that didn't get as good reviews from what I've read.. but who knows.. to each his own!

Have you read this book? Are you a Dan Brown fan?
