Coffee in Jars

June 10, 2013





When people think of Hawaii, they usually think of Waikiki, sandy beaches, and hula girls. While my hometown of Kailua certainly has its fair share of beautiful beaches, there’s so much more to Hawaii than the typical tourist traps. I love how many cute boutiques and lovely coffee shops there are to discover here on the Windward side!

I spent a couple of hours with a good book and a good friend the other day at one of my favourite’s, Chadlou’s. The iced coffee is delicious and I can’t resist anything served in a mason jar!




I’ve been reading Dark Places by Gillian Flynn and I’m absolutely loving it! Have any of you read it? I’m on a bit of a Gillian Flynn kick after devouring Gone Girl earlier!

After grabbing coffee, I headed next door to Olive Boutique. I would gladly buy up the whole store, from the lovely striped dresses to the delicate bracelets. And don’t get me started on the decor– I’m seriously planning to DIY those floral Hello letters!

    Such sweet little pictures, thanks for sharing. Love the dress and boots combo, and anything in a jar is beautiful. I have been enjoying my granola and blueberry yoghurt breakfasts in little jars of late and i even made us sweet little mojitos in them the other night with stripey straws…..i may have too much time on my hands!!!

    Hope you are well xxxx

    Woah, what a lovely place to spend some down time! I like the whole vibe, even down to the glasses everything has character. The sound of the ice cream sandwich sounds delicious also.

    Thanks for your comment too – good to know I’m not the only hoarder haha
