Tripping to Paradise

Paradise does exist. It’s a tiny little dot laying in the middle of the pacific ocean. Mortals call it Maui, Hawaii. I’m back in town but I left my heart there.

What to do… Life is a beach.

Maui’s beauty is irresistible and our stay at Alejandro’s studios in Haiku- Pauwela was beyond enjoyable. You definitely have to visit the island at least once in your life and if you finally do, check with Alejandro for your accommodation. His profile on Airbnb is found here.

Aloha! 

The jeans beach bag

With the Americana style on the rise, the top to bottom jeans trend (of which I’m not a great fan) and the jeans handbag returning this season, I’m definitely carrying my Michael Kors at the beach for yet another summer! So roomy and light! What do you think?

Beach Retro

20130625-212740.jpg

It seems that every summer I have a thing with retro swimwear. It simply makes you feel like the diva of the beach and why not? the next Bond girl. Usually a retro swimsuit draws all attention to your curves (which some women might want to avoid), but hey, we are women and we should celebrate our curves!

The beach retro frenzy this summer (from left to right):
