I was lucky enough to stay with my family who is located in Honolulu on the island of Oahu.
In Honolulu some of my favorite things to do are shop the boutiques and grab a bite to eat. I usually go to the Fort Street Mall because it has tons of little hole in the wall eateries, filled with salads, classic vietnamese foods, bakeries, and coffee shops.
A few blocks west and you'll find the cutest shops and boutiques, without the Waikiki crowds. The prices are still high, but that's definitely to be expected everywhere on the island (unfortunate side effect of a tourist destination/city).
I stayed with family on this trip but we took a mini-vacation to the north shore's Turtle Bay.
At Turtle Bay we spent the first day by the pool, listening to kids splash and the live music they had playing that night while looking out at the sunset. The second night day we sat in the sand, explored the coral reef, and ate at the beachfront restaurant nearby. The Turtle Bay resort is totally deluxe but worth the money of even the shortest stay.
On my trip I wore the Unicorn Lisa Frank High Waisted Ruched Bikini Bottoms and the Unicorn Lisa Frank Tie Back Bikini Top!
