A Taste of Hawaii

Here is another installment of pictures from my Hawaii trip. As some of you know, I earned the trip along with 600 other Avon representatives (some earned free guests) for recognition of my sales. The destination was San Diego two years ago and last year was an Alaskan cruise (didn't make Alaska). Next year is Puerto Rico which I'm working towards.

Downtown Honolulu. It's easy to get around I took the trolley from the hotel to downtown and shopping area. 

hair flower meaning hawaii, coral cropped pants

At the farewell dinner. By this time, I was missing home and tired of wearing two outfits everyday. The hair flower has a story to it. Wear it on the right side of your head and it means you are single, on the left side means you are taken. Wear it on the back of your head and it means anything goes. 

Outfit: Cardi - Target, Eyelet top - Gap, Coral Cropped pants - The Limited, Necklace - International Market Honolulu, Earrings - The Limited

With my room mate at the Luau. Those Leis are made with real flowers. They died a day after. Imagine how many of these flowers have to die. So many leis in Hawaii. 

Outfit: Full details here

Day at the beach. I'm in the water somewhere. I actually swam in a beach the first time. The water is so clean and tempting.

Outfit: Dress - Old Navy, Sunnies - Avon

Visit to the Pearl Harbor Memorial and USS Arizona Memorial. Parts of the sunken Arizona Ship during the Pearl Harbor attack. That white building is over the sunken ship. It's also a grave site because the bodies of many were not recovered.

More pictures from the beach and lagoon at the hotel. Also found and attended a church service on the beach. Several weddings were taking place at the beach also.

Day of shopping. That lady took all my money. ;). I only shopped for souvenirs. Didn't go to any of the designer stores or the mall. There's fish and water everywhere.

Outfit: Tee - Old Navy, Printed Crops - Loft (similar)

By the way, with my sales, apart from my commissions, I also earn points that can be converted to cash and gift cards, plus I earn from recruiting other representatives. So this is also a solicitation. If you are looking to start a business that's easy to do because of your schedule, Avon is a good option. See here
