Today I wanted to share some pictures from our recent house makeover! Mandi from Vintage Revivals reached out a few months back and wanted to collaborate and since our house was barely furnished I was ALL OVER this idea! I remember before we moved in I couldn’t wait to move into my own house and I had all these ideas for decorating. Then I realized that it’s freakin HARD!!! I am so indecisive and can never stick so one idea so I’m glad that Mandi took over and made our place look amazing! We traveled so much in this past year and decorating was just not my top priority so fast forward over a year after moving in, the living room, dining room and entry way are all complete! I am still working on our bedroom… I have swapped out our duvet cover and pillows a million times but I actually ordered some furniture to go in there so we will finally have a place to store some things instead of just putting everything in a pile in the corner of the room 😬. I made a video of our house makeover so I will link that here and put it down below. Make sure to watch it and check out Mandi’s blog post here to see more pictures of the reveal, and she also will have some posts up of the DIY projects she did in our house!
Happy December! I wanted to share a quick post today with some gift ideas for you guys!

I have things in all different price ranges that everyone can enjoy. I haven’t even started Christmas shopping yet so I need to get on that!! Urban Outfitters always has a lot of awesome pieces so i’ll be heading back over there now to purchase some goodies to gift! Hope you guys enjoy this and find it useful! Let me know if you want to see any other holiday posts!

Today I wanted to do a little post on my favorite places that we ate while we were in Kauai. I’m not a very adventurous eater and I like to eat plant based or vegan if I have the option to so i’m not sure how helpful this will be to someone who eats everything and is looking for some good food… but if you are like me and you like a good acai bowl, this blog post is the blog post for you!
Freshly squeezed orange juice and a vegan snickerdoodle! SO good!
1. Java Kai
This place was my FAVORITE! The vegan snickerdoodle was amazing and the actual building was so cute and colorful. We ate here twice cause I loved it so much! Acai bowls are one of my favorite foods so I got one of those basically everywhere we went. This one wasn’t the best tasting but overall I loved this place the most! Parker also got a breakfast burrito and he really liked it!
2. Aloha Aina Juice Bar
THIS place was officially the winner for best acai bowls. I got the Kauai Acai parfait both times we went and it was so yummy! It had ice cream on top!!!! It doesn’t get better than that! They had a TON of options for acai bowls and smoothies. Parker got the Chunky Monkey bowl and loved that too!
3. JoJo’s Shave Ice
We had all heard good things about Jojo’s so we decided to give it a try. I had just eaten (an acai bowl of course) so I didn’t get my own but I did try some of Parker’s and it was delish! I think they put ice cream in the bottom of these too. Definitely try this place if you are in Kauai!
4. Kalalea Juice Hale
The lady at this place was the nicest lady I have ever met!! The acai bowl was also pretty good and they had a lot of other options too. This place also is the cutest color and totally Instagram worthy.
5. Aloha Juice Bar
As you can tell from this post I mostly lived off of acai bowls while we were in Kauai… They are just SO GOOD! This place is on the northern side of the island so we went here when we drove up there for the day.
A few other places we liked were Bubba’s Burgers, Caffe Coco, and Skinny Mike’s. I didn’t eat a burger from Bubba’s but Parker loved it. Our friend Sam recommended we try Caffe Coco and we all decided to share a few things. We got the garlic bread, quesadilla, and the tofu potstickers! I keep craving this place because it was sooo good. We went to Skinny Mike’s one night cause I saw on Yelp that they have vegan ice cream, I got the chocolate one and really liked it!
That’s all for my favorite places to eat in Kauai! I have more pictures so another post will be up soon but since I had so many yummy food places I wanted to share I decided to just make a separate post. We also vlogged our trip so I will link those vlogs here! Hope you guys all had a good Thanksgiving if you celebrate! Also let me know what you think of the little makeover I did on the blog! I showed it to my mom and we were laughing because she used the same template for hers so we both thought we must have pretty good taste ;)
