My first trip ever to Maui!! I got invited by Alyssa Fung of Fashionstas Market to participate in her (first ever) fashion event on Maui in April. It was called “Girls Day Out.” Alyssa is a sweet girl and a very hard working, successful Mommy!! I love working mommies!! It ain’t easy but it takes a strong woman to have two full time jobs…

The event on Maui was held at the Westin in Lahaina and over 400 women showed up to shop!!
My old friend Jessica came to model in the fashion show and I gifted her the Ligia earrings in gold. Doesn’t she look beautiful??

My girl Moani from Recycled Sweetheart got to come with me!

We stayed at my girlfriend Emelyn’s awesome house, even though she is now living in California. Her parents and sister (Hi Gwyn!) were great hosts and they let us have our own rooms!! We walked out into the yard in the morning to do some light yoga and stretching and we found a garden of tomatoes, eggplant, basil, parsley, and huge squash! So we made some sauteed veggies for breakfast!
This is only half of the squash. There were even bigger ones in the yard growing wild!!
We also got to do a little shopping while we were on Maui. We drove to Paia and both Moani and I got our designs into one of the coolest stores, Alice in Hulaland on Baldwin St. Stan, the owner, is an awesome guy and has a good eye for fashion. He even tried on one of my necklaces…

For dinner we got to go to the Melting Pot, which is a fondue restaurant! The 4 course meal was delicious. Our new friend Tamika got to join us.

We stuffed ourselves silly and had a great evening with just the girls. We had so much fun on Maui. Thanks everyone for their help!!!
