Aloha, all! For the next week, I am in Kauai (an island of Hawaii), vacationing with my family. (The boy is staying at home, and he gets to be on Mellan-sitting-duty!) Now, don’t run off thinking this means the blog will be at a stand still. No, no, NO! I have plenty of content geared up to post, and I expect to make plenty ‘o posts about what I do, learn, and see in Hawaii when it comes to beauty. And I have no doubt I will learn a lot about water-resistant and heat-resistant makeup! I also tend to be much better at applying makeup everyday while on vacation, so I’ll be showing you regular looks. You won’t even know I’m gone. In fact, you’ll probably wonder if I ever relaxed at all! ;)

It’s my first time in Kauai – I’ve only been to Honolulu a few times in the past, and probably not for a good ten years since my last visit. If you have any spots or things to do to recommend, feel free!

    OMG Kauai is amazing! I was in Hawaii a few (okay… 6 or 7) years ago, and it’s absolutely gorgeous! I hope you have a fantastic time and enjoy the islands!

    I grew up on Kauai and I can definitely recommend hiking the Na Pali coast. Fairly difficult, but the views are worth it!

    Oh, sounds great! I was there a couple of years ago for my honeymoon. We spent a week on Maui and a week on Kauai. Kauai is very laid back. If you love coffee, the coffee plantation is fun to see and yummy to taste. I would also recommend a visit to the Allerton Botanical Gardens. They do a two hour walking tour that’s great for pictures and not too strenuous. Plus most of it is in the shade.

    Hey Danielle I was woundering how the weather on kauia is at christmas time and around that time since im going to kauai on the 17th of December.And does the macys mac get the shipments in the same time the US does? And do they still have products from past collections like neo sci fi and tendertones and stuff im just think they might because kauai is not that big if that makes scence ? hahahahaha

      the weather here is very windy and rainy but during the day there’s sun and windy.
      the shipments don’t come in on time all the time, it comes in a few days after or it could be a week till they have their shipments.
      unfortunately they don’t have any products from past collections, they sell out so fast.

      how long are you gonna be on kauai?

    beaches, zip lining, hiking, luaus, if you’re over 21 there’s bars called Rob’s good time grill, trade winds, and the point. a lot of sight-seeing, and just relaxing. the places to eat that is good are duke’s, keoki’s, jj’s broiler, and kintaro’s.

    i hope you have a great vacation here. =)
