carry all | giveaway

As a thank you for supporting my recent blog revamp, I’ve partnered with Samudra to host my first giveaway today. The locally owned company creates island-inspired bags and clothing popular with beach lovers across the globe. The “Mokulua Pouch,” a Samudra favorite, is a cotton canvas zip pouch featuring an image of the sun rising over the Mokulua Islands on the east side of Oahu. It’s the perfect size for toting all of your essentials, including an iPad.

Want to get your hands on it? To enter, visit Samudra’s online shop and leave a comment here telling us how you would use your pouch if you win. Please include your email address. Comments will remain open through Sunday (10 p.m. HST) and then one winner will be chosen at random and announced on Monday.

Good luck!

UPDATE: Comments are now closed. The giveaway has ended and the winner has been notified. Thanks to everyone for participating! 


“You have within you more love

than you could ever understand.”

happy thanksgiving

My favorite holiday is here. This year, honestly, I’m thankful for everything. The good, the bad and the lessons we’re meant to learn from both.

So, here’s to a few slices too many. I hope you get your fill!
