Outfit of the Day: Nakalele Blowhole in North Maui

Nakalele Blowhole is another cool attraction that you can do on Maui. It’s located on the northwestern part of the island. This is home to the more underdeveloped rural areas so the road conditions can be pretty bad getting there. However, you will definitely be able to see some really stunning views along the way (see pics below)!

Once you reached the site, you will have to do a short hike to the bottom. The blowhole is easy to spot because it is always active and forms geyser-like eruptions every few minutes. Though a pretty interesting sight to see,  it’s important to note that it can also be extremely dangerous. I would not recommend getting anywhere near it or walking on the wet rocks. There have been a few serious accidents here which ultimately ended in deaths. It’s a scary thought to process but as long as you are careful, this area is a beautiful place to explore! ~b

Outfit of the Day: Iolani Palace

Wherever I travel, I often find myself gravitating towards beautiful architecture. Perhaps it’s the impeccable craftsmanship or the rich history but I am always captivated by these places. I believe these old regal buildings are the heart and soul of a city and within their walls lies stories of the past. Iolani Palace was the royal residence for the Hawaiian monarchy. Today, it stands proudly as a national historic landmark on the island of Honolulu. It’s a marvel of opulence and innovation, definitely worth a visit! ~b

Maui, Hawaii may be known for its beautiful beaches, but its unique landscape also offers a wide range of breathtaking sceneries. If you adventure on the Pipiwai Trail you will discover bamboo forests and majestic waterfalls. It is one of the most popular hikes on the island because it leads to the famous 400 feet, Waimoku Falls. The four-mile trail is fairly easy with a ton of photo opportunities along the way. Here are some of my favorites! ~b

When I was a kid, I always fantasized about being whisked away to an exotic destination. The beaches at Makena State Park in Hawaii are pretty close to that! With golden shorelines and brilliant aqua blue water, this hot spot in Maui is a dreamer’s paradise!

Hi guys, hope all is well! I still have a ton of images from Hawaii to post. So here ya go. 6ish months too late but better now then never! It’s a constant work-in-progress but I plan to very slowly but surely share them with you all. 🙂

Tropical florals and lush greenery background are pretty much ubiquitous in Hawaii. These pictures are fun because they make it appear as if I’m in the jungle. However, they were actually taken only a few steps from the front door of the condo in which I was staying at. This just goes to show that you really don’t have to venture far to get lost in the beauty of nature. ~b

High Rise Studio Apartment Tour / City Living

Hi guys! I am so excited to be able to share my completed high rise studio with you all!! This apartment was initially my boyfriend’s place, (you can see the empty tour here) however, fast forward about a year later and this quickly became our second home in the city!

As you can probably imagine, sharing a small space can be quite a challenge. Luckily, we had the opportunity to work with an amazing West Elm interior designer to help with the decorating process. She was able to create an open space layout with a sense of ebb and flow. So although it’s technically one room, it feels separated with distinct areas for various functions (sleep, eat, entertain, etc.)

When designing we opted for very simple but sophisticated furniture pieces. We are both are a big fan of contemporary aesthetics so we thought these modern pieces paired perfectly together. As a whole, they really elevate and craft a cohesive look within the space. (Pst..I’ll be sure to make an apartment haul video in the future featuring these items for you guys!). All in all, I absolutely love the transformation of our 585 sq. ft. studio. Now it looks and feels like a city chic apartment – there’s no other place I rather call home!

10 Facts About Me {Part 2}

BeInspireful - Sunflower Picture

Hey guys,

I’m in the midst of editing another apartment video so there will be a lack of blog post for a while. Currently, I do not have a lot of time throughout  the week to edit pictures or create content due to my busy schedule. I did want to write another 10 facts about me post because I think they are fun to write and interesting to read. Enjoy!

10 Facts about me (Part 2)

1.) I work in the social media / advertising field doing marketing and design. I have my own office at my company’s headquarters. I’m a  rather young professional so I feel very blessed and spoiled even – to have my own space to be creative. Once it’s fully decorated, I’ll see if I can create a mini corporate office tour for you guys!

2.) I do not keep any personal social media profiles like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. But I do have multiple accounts on all platforms. They are all used for work related things / side projects. I love how influential and inspiring social media can be. Not to mention, it is a lot of fun!

3.) My boyfriend is not a photographer, which I think a lot of people assume. It’s just his passion and hobby! His actual profession is computer engineering. He’s very analytic and logical. My complete opposite basically. Haha.

4.) He used to be my next door neighbor and that’s how we met! We’ve been together for over a year!

5.) I have two apartments in the city that I call home.

6.) My dream dog would be a Pomsky. They are seriously so darn cute!

7.) Speaking of animals,  my favorite animal is an elephant. You can find mini sculpture decor of them all over my home and office.

8.) I very rarely will buy jewelry. In fact, the only jewelry I do wear is a four leaf clover necklace which I have worn since 7th grade!

9.) I fell down a flight of stairs when I was 2 or 3, which left a permanent indent on my forehead. Forever clumsy.

10.)  One of the best decisions I’ve ever made was choosing not to go to the Ohio State University. During the last month of my senior year of highschool, I was awarded a very big scholarship to attend a much smaller university near my hometown. This allowed me to graduate college debt free, putting me in a far better financial situation than most people my age. That’s why I am able to travel often, buy nice things, and live a comfortable lifestyle.

Welp, that’s all for this blog post! Thanks so much for reading and learning some weird facts about me! Here’s a link to my last one, in case you guys wanted to read some more! 🙂
