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 ;)
Hey guys! Today I am sharing some pictures of our new room decor. I always like to switch up my decor around the holidays and usually I get a little more festive but this year I wanted to just keep things a little more neutral and simple. I added some new pieces from Urban Outfitters and ordered a new platform bed and this is how it all looks! I am still not completely finished and if you watch my vlog channel you’ll get to see what the other half of the room looks like (hint: it’s very messy) so I am still going to be changing and rearranging a few things but for now I am loving how everything looks!
I looooooove this new duvet cover from Urban Outfitters! It’s reversible and comes in 2 other colors. I love the simple color but I also really love the mauve on the other side so this one is perfect for me. I ordered some new pillow cases that are the same color so some of these pillows will change but for now I have these rose jersey ones on our back pillows and then some colorful ones in front of those. I think the colorful ones I have are sold out but I will link some similar ones here. Also I got this new speckled pillow and added that to the front. I think this pillow is on sale so definitely get it now if you want it! Also I added these Be Still My Soulposters to our wall since I got rid of our headboard. I loooove these posters they are so cute, I have them in some black frames from Ikea. I want to get a dresser or something to replace the mirror in the corner since it look’s a little weird next to the posters now. Also I have had that copper lamp for a while now but I will link that here too!
New throw blanket! I have so many of these I am obsessed and this one also comes in a bunch of colors. I layered it over this faux fur one I have had my eye on for SO LONG. Seriously the cutest blanket in the world!
Another thing I added to our room was this pouffrom Amazon. It was only $60!! It’s at the end of our bed next to this tray with my new candle and journal from UO. The candle smells really yummy and I love the color of this journal! It also comes in 2 other colors and I think things that come in other colors are pretty great so I feel like mentioning that for every item it applies to haha.
I also got a cute new plant! I put it in this new planter and I also added this cute christmas tree to my mini nightstand! I love this cube I will try to link a similar one here, and I will link the polaroid frames as well!
I added some of these string lights with clips to my mirror and hung some photos on them. I am planning on moving this mirror to the other side of the room but I love string lights and had them on my headboard before so these ones with the clips are perfect to hang pics on my mirror. I have a bunch of pics from Pinterest hung up now but I want to print some of my own to hang! I mentioned this photo printer a while back and it’s perfect for printing pictures from my phone.
Halfway through shooting this blog post our new bed showed up so these 2 pics are from before we switched that out! I like our headboard but wanted something more simple so I picked out a platform bed. The one we have is sold out but this one is the same but a little shorter. I got this woven wall hanging from Urban and I think it is so so cute! I took it off this wall when we put in the new bed but I am going to hang it in another spot in our room but how cute is it!
I added this rug to our bathroom also! It’s my fav color!
Overall I am so happy with how everything is turning out! I still have a lot of things to add and change but so far so good! I will have official links to everything I showed and also a few other pieces I love right here –
We vlogged the day we set all this new stuff up so that video will be below. Hope you guys are all having a great day!
Hi guys! Today I am sharing some pics from my mini summer room makeover. One of my favorite ways to change things up a little in my life is to switch out some of my home decor. Majority of things in my room are from Urban Outfitters so I picked a few new pieces to brighten up my room for summer! Also my room is really girly and people always ask how Parker is okay living in such a girly room but I feel like it’s so common for the wife to just take over with the decorating and the husband to be okay with it ha! He has his office and the garage which he has made his own so he doesn’t mind that I have taken over the rest of the house ;) Also as you can see the blog got another little makeover! I love it except for some reason my posts aren’t showing up on their pages like the Fashion page is empty even though I have a bunch of posts tagged in the fashion category! If anyone knows how to fix that let me know!
First things first, I GOT A NEW DUVET COVER! I have been eyeing this one for while now but couldn’t ever decide what color to get since they have multiple options. The duvet cover I had on before this one was a cream color and I like to stick with neutrals for major pieces like this but I decided to get the rose color and I LOVE IT! It’s still not any crazy color but it is different! And it’s so soft which is important for me since comfort is at the top of my priority list so I am so glad I got this duvet cover and the matching pillow cases.
I also got a couple new throw pillows… If you know me or have ever been to my house you know that I do not need any more of these ha! I have SO many. I like to have different color choices to switch up the background of my videos or even for pictures but wow I really have way too many pillows. I love this printed body pillow and also have wanted the Good Vibes pillow for so long so I am happy to have added it to my collection!
As for the lights on my headboard, they have been there for a while but I wanted to mention them because they are one of my favorite parts of my room and I always get asked where they are from so here is the link!
I ordered a clothing rack for my room and IT’S SO CUTE! I don’t have enough clothes of the same color scheme to fill up the whole thing yet but I have been dreaming about hanging my hats on the ends which is so weird but I was just really excited to get this clothing rack in the mail haha. I put this little white cube next to it and I think the whole setup is so cute!
This week on my channel I decided to do a DIY Room Decor video! I showed some clips of my new decor and also made 3 easy DIY’s. I did a cute yarn wall hanging thing and I also used this printer from Urban to print out some photos for my second DIY! This printer is amazing and so convenient! I printed out my photos and then literally just taped them to a stick that Parker found for me haha. For the last DIY I wanted to make some easy jewelry trays for my nightstand and those turned out decent but definitely could have been cuter if I had any artistic talent at all…
Also a couple new fashion pieces are in this post as well! I got a yellow dress, a purple dress (both of them have the cutest prints) and also this bodysuit which I love so much! I have been doing a lot of hauls on my YouTube channels showing you guys thing that are cute to wear so make sure you are caught up on those!
Overall I love the new decor and I have actually been talking to a designer about doing our living room and kitchen so the house finally seems like it’s sort of coming together! Since we have been traveling so much this year decorating really hasn’t been my first priority and I am fine with that but it’s still fun to see everything actually look nice! I hope you guys enjoyed this post, don’t forget to check out the video below to see the room and the DIY’s! And let me know what you want my next post to be on!
