Piña Coladas

April 24, 2020

Aloha bruddahs and sistas! This week, two awesome travelers share with us their trip to Oahu, Hawaii.

“Hawaii is one of the most beautiful and natural places in the world.”
- Evan Blum

From the peaceful palms,

to the wonderful waterfalls,

to the outstanding ocean,

...the sights of the island are simply breathtaking.

“My trip to Hawaii was full of adventure, culture, and food!”
- Priya Ghosh

From the fresh fruit and the green geckos,

to the zappy zip-lining,

to the vivid views,

...there’s so much to do and see while in Oahu, Hawaii. 

While there, Evan and Priya found something AMAZING!

We happened upon a fabric warehouse in Oahu and spent a few hours looking through all the patterns and choices. Unsurprisingly, the fabrics we found had that peaceful cultural feel weaved within it. The fabrics symbolize a local staple and represent the beautiful state of Hawaii. We’re happy to share with you something that makes us so happy.

Here’s to sipping Piña Coladas (even if it's on a Zoom virtual background) and getting caught in the rain & to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

See ya lei-ter!

A Rwanda'ring Hero

Kigali is a beautiful hilly city, quite green and very clean. People are super nice and eager to tell you about their history, including the genocide. Rwanda does not allow plastic bags, so, unlike other African countries, there is no plastic flying around or laying on the streets.
