"For all of us, becoming indigenous to a place means living as if your children's future mattered, to take care of the land as if our lives, both material and spiritual, depended on it." - Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass

When in Idyllwild a couple weeks ago, I stumbled upon this amazing Chocolate Café -
El Buen Cacao.
The make chocolate straight from cacao beans from Central and South America. They specialize in dark chocolate, but while we were there we ordered some Chocolate Milk Shakes. They were the best shakes I've ever had in my life. The best word to describe the chocolate there is: FRESH!
Chocolate is one of my favorite things! It always makes me smile and never disappoints, and this is some of the best chocolate I've ever had.
I'm glad I have an amazing sister that said yes right away when I asked if she'd help me sell Lularoe.
I love my LipSense lip color.
Not only do they have a variety of gorgeous colors to choose from, but they are long lasting. With a two-year-old who likes to touch my face and kiss my lips throughout the day I need something that won't rub off and I don't have to keep applying.
It is the perfect combination of BEAUTIFUL and PRACTICAL.
I was first introduced to this amazing brand by my cousin Laralynn Aiono Defngin, who is a LipSense Representative. Since starting with LipSense she has helped my niece
Shaye Aiono-Campbell become a representative as well. Today and tomorrow I am lucky enough to host an online party for Shaye. Check out her page: Lasting Lazy Girl Makeup
You won't regret it!
My Cassette Tape Carly Dress is one of my absolute favorites!
"We all want a cute dress that lets us breathe and move easier, so we are excited about the Carly - a swing dress that flatters the best parts of a feminine physique while being flowy and breezy everywhere else. The Carly comes in a wide array of fabrics, prints, and washes and has some amazing features such as a patch pocket, a flattering high-low hemline, and cool open sleeves.If you don’t already own a swing dress, we guarantee that you soon will! We all want a cute dress that lets us breathe and move easier. One that is chic, comfy and as versatile as your taste. Which is why we are excited about the Carly - a swing dress that flatters the best parts of the feminine physique while being flowy and breezy everywhere else.
Today’s modern swing dress is a flowy, comfy dress that still has an A-line shape. But rather than hugging your waist, the “A” shape hugs closer to your chest, with the fabric belling out from there. Because of the higher position of the “waist,” the swing dress has lots of movement potential--it “swings” when you walk! And there’s nothing more beautiful and feminine than a dress that swings and flows about you as you walk, dance, and just lounge."

My new latest fashion obsession are my hand-beaded, custom-made, earrings by Mia Woody.
I literally have been wearing them everywhere and can't wait to get more.
I met Mia at our Lularoe Aiono Sisters pop-up party in Flagstaff, Arizona and fell in love with her work. I had been given the heart earrings prior to meeting her and loved her work already, but when I was able to see the range of styles and detail up close, my love turned into full blown obsession.
Mia Woody is a beautiful Navajo woman and her beadwork is impressive, modern, and elegant.
Everywhere I go, people are complementing me on my earrings and I feel beautiful wearing them.
Follow Mia Woody on:
"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart;
and lean not to thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge Him,
and He shall direct thy paths"
Proverbs 3:5-6 is my favorite scripture. Whatever spiritual path you may be on, I feel that it's so important to practice the principles of kindness, love, and charity towards each other. To me, these are the true teachings of Christ and the pathway that He will direct us on if we let Him. The more we show love to God and to our fellow men, the more Satan can't win.
