I ♥ Mahjong

So last weekend at the beach house I learned how to play mahjong! Now I'm hooked! I've been looking online everyday for a set of my own but couldn't decide which one I really wanted. It's hard to tell what you're actually gonna end up with when you order something online so I decided to check out an antique store in Kailua called Ali'i Antiques. Unfortunately cameras are not allowed in the store so if you want to see the amazing plethora of stuff they have you'll need to stop in for yourself or check them out online. 
Anywho, without further ado I give you my new majong set:

North Shore Weekend ♥

This weekend Da Hij and I were invited to spend the weekend at a beach house in Laie with our friends Trav & Sheryl & their family. The boys went for a morning dive so Sheryl & I decided to visit our friend Kimi at the Haleiwa Arts Festival. Here are some pictures from our day's adventure: 

Miss Kimi Werner's Art stand:

Her "happy hats" can be purchased on Etsy

Rainbow colored glasses

Instagram take on the rainbow glasses! I LOVE iT!

I {HEART} these heine cups - repurposed 40 oz. bottles

Sunrise shell necklace & earrings


After the art festival, baby Brooke needed a nap so we dropped her back at the beach house then we headed back out to check out an antique shop we passed on the way to Haleiwa.

The interesting store front that caught our eye

Beautiful antique glass bottles

Oodles & oodles of Kokeshi dolls

Vintage kokeshi's. Such beautiful craftsmanship.

Such cute personalities :)

I had a blast hanging out with one of my best girls doing what we do best... SHOPPING, LOUNGING, and EATING! It was a perfect ending to a long week! Hope you all had an awesome weekend too!

I ♥ to Collect

I love, love, LOVE tokidoki things! When I say love, I mean borderline obsessed. I especially love the unicorn character. I have the pillow cases, the necklace and the little keychain that came on a cosmetic bag I got as a secret santa gift from JLuke and Wendy.

And NOW... My buddy Sheryl informed me that they make *drumroll please...* TOKIDOKI UNICORN BLIND BOXES!!! 

OMG!!! I have new purpose in my life now other than planning my wedding. I am on a mission to collect all these cuties :)Here are the ones I've collected so far:

Every time I visit Ala Moana Shopping Center from now on, I will make it a point to stop in at Animation Addict to purchase one blind box until my collection is complete... or I may end up cheating and going online to buy the ones I need hahaha.

Thanks for letting me share my love/obsession for this adorable character. What do you collect or obsess over? I'd love to know that I'm not the only crazy in this world that obsessively collects things. Till next time...
