Modeling for Amaryllis of Hawaii

12/16/2010 § 1 Comment

Today was so much fun! I was modeling for Amaryllis of Hawaii at Ho’okipa this morning! It was gorgeous and Judi Riley took the pictures! She is a natural photographer.

Marilyn Jansen is the creator and even though I’ve only met her twice, she is super nice and really personable. She paints and silk screens her own tshirts. She has written books, from coloring to cooking and even gardening! She is super creative! It’s awesome to have so many artsy people here!

Anyway so check out her website at and see for yourself!!

Wow! Two amazing things in one day!

So I met my friend at  Baby Beach this morning, but I didn’t go swimming, I just had fun taking pictures! The water was so crystal clear and serene.

Serene Beach

Serene, crystal clearness

There were plenty of people on the beach but I found a small little cove that I wrote these words…


To write Aloha in the sand

Things I love about Maui!!!

Sand is one of those things...

So as I went about my stressful day…I was anticipating my friend’s birthday beach evening. We had fun surfing, even though we got caught in some sets that were head high at least. It makes you realize how precious life is. It’s probably the 100th time I’ve almost died at Ho’okipa and her first. We made it and we are totally fine. We ate a bit and then took pictures….of our toes!

Toes in the sand

Who needs a pedicure...when there is a beach!

So then it started to get dark…and we knew what that meant. Turtles! We were careful not to get too close, that’s why the pictures are a bit blurry. They crept up on the beach and started to sleep.



I work for Happy Honu Comfort Gear aka Tikitales so it makes me really excited when I actually see a Happy Honu!

On a side note, Thanksgiving is coming! Woop woop! Time for stuffing yourself with turkey and pumkin pie.

Now, this is a little weird cause usually people ask, “What is your favorite thanksgiving food?” or something like that. Well, I’m gonna ask…What is your least favorite part of the thanksgiving meal?

My least favorite would have to be, the cranberry sauce with real cranberries. I don’t like crunching on things when I am trying to enjoy the jello substance.

Don’t forget to comment and give your answer!

Beautiful Ho'okipa

Clear water!

Did anyone drive by (or surf) Ho’okipa on Thursday? It was so beautiful!

These are some pictures I took from the road. Don’t worry I wasn’t driving. 😉 Sorry, some are a bit blurry.

The water at Ho’okipa (Ho-oh-key-pah) is usually choppy and not so blue. Mostly choppy cause of the wind. Windsurfers love those conditions but today, it was pure surfing conditions. The parking lot at Ho’okipa Beach Park was packed and there were so many people in the water!

I went surfing later in the day, it was still pretty good…but the Honu (ho-new; sea turtles) were kinda scaring me, they kept popping up out of nowhere and I was afraid I would run over one!

I always love Ho’okipa, but that day especially. Probably has something to do with me being a surfer/boogie boarder. Yeah, one of these days I will get someone to take a picture of me surfing.

Oops! There's a sign in the way...

I took these pictures at 9:30 am. I bet people skipped out on work just to enjoy this…
