Aloha! Our trip to Hawaii was an absolute dream 🌈 While the trip to and from was incredibly long, like holy sh*t I don’t remember it being that long when we were honeymooning, it was 100% worth it. We learned so much about our Young Living business, made lifelong friends, and are so inspired by the stories we heard and just diving more into the company. It was also REALLY NICE to have some time along with Brian. We had so much fun together and you almost forget how much you actually “like” your spouse when you’re in the daily grind. Of course the love is always there but I just loved having fun learning and exploring with Brian.
We went to the Big Island and stayed on our hotel property for most of the trip. I didn’t want to push it with the pregnancy, and the travel took a lot out of me so we just enjoyed the people we were with and the awesome resort surroundings. We stayed at the Hilton Waikoloa Village. One day we rented a car and did some driving but other than that we did beach and pool. I did get a prenatal massage which was the best thing of my life, and we swam with the dolphins which was really cool 🐬
I wanted to put together a little shopping list of what I bought for our warm weather trips this year to inspire you in case you’re heading somewhere warm this winter, too! While a few pieces are splurge items, most are very affordable pieces that can be worn for resort travel and into the summer! Also, if you are traveling, you need these travel organizer packing cubes!! They are a total game changer, you pack in the cubes around different occasions so one would be for pajamas, one would be for swimwear, etc… Then you just put the cubes in the hotel drawers. How have I not used these before?!

no. 1 J. Crew Rainbow swim top + bottoms The stock on this one is pretty low but I LOVE it so much and hope they restock.
no. 2 Long Sleeve Floral Print Dress I found this on Amazon and ordered the XS. There are so many patterns to choose from and I love it so much!
no. 3 Clare V. Round Top This bag is a CLASSIC. I’ve been wearing it for a couple of years now and it never gets old. The beauty part is you can stuff it with a bunch of stuff like wipes and sunscreen, or as little as a cellphone and wallet.
no. 4 Supersoft Terry Racerback Maxi Dress This dress could not be more comfortable! It’s non-maternity buy obviously fits the bump. Wearing an XS.
no. 5 Packable Panama Hat OBSESSED with this hat. If you guys only knew how many freaking hats I try on. My head is either giant or oddly shaped and most hats just don’t fit right 😭
no. 6 Birkenstock Suede Sandal
no. 7 Karen Walker Super Duper Strength Sunglasses I’ve had these for years and always get so many compliments on them!
no. 8 Petra Tiered Tunic Dress The dress is like 1 in a million! Anthro had it and when I shared it, it sold out BUT one of you found it for me at Everything but Water!
no. 9 Island Goddess One-Piece Swimsuit The.Best.Classic.Black.Swimsuit.Ever. That is all. I sized up to an 8 for the bump.
no. 10 Lulu Jack Bezel Bar Necklace Brian gave this to me for Christmas and I love it SO, SO much!! I have the 16″ in yellow gold.
no. 11 Golden Goose Super Star Sneakers Brian also got me these for Christmas and I love them. They are super comfortable and I love the look of them. I rarely splurge on designer everything so figured sneakers which I wear almost everyday would be a worthy invesement/gift. Brian picked these out himself so good job, Brian!
no. 12 Studded Flat Sandals Love these and they are under $20! I ordered my true size and they fit great.
no. 13 Rattan Tassel Earrings – Been wearing these with everything! They are SUPER lightweight on your ears and are under $10!
no. 14 Striped terry T-shirt beach dress – Super comfy dress that you can wear over your bathing suit and also on it’s own for a casual look.
no. 15 Long Swimsuit Coverup – ANOTHER amazon find! Looks really pretty draped over a bathing suit.
no. 16 One Fine Day Mini Dress – I’ve had this puppy since last year and love it. I’m so happy Free People keeps coming back out with it! I wear an XS in it.
no. 17 Tory Burch Miller Flip Flop – Another classic! Love these sandals and ordered my true size.
K that’s all!! And if you want to come to Hawaii with me NEXT YEAR, let’s get you on my team and start this amazing journey together! Learn more here 🌈
