Let’s do a little recap of the Waikiki classic, shall we…because this past weekend was rather sweet.
First off, I can’t thank the crew at Roxy for asking little ‘ol me to be a part of the event, I’ve said it a before, I’ll say it again. I’m totally flattered. And I’ve now come to the realization that deep down inside, I’d be one heck of an arts and crafts teacher.
Now, a few highlights.
One of the little girls who was pretty much the queen of the DIY tent, made me a necklace (she’s pictured above with the braids). It happened to be perfectly color coordinated and really cool. I think she was maybe 8. We’ve got a future beach bling designer on our hands.
My hula shorts we a hit. Crazy print shorts. Wear them. They are the best.
As much as I tried, I realized it’s almost impossible to catch a wave while sitting in an inner tube. Even if it’s neon green. My butt provided too much drag, and is no way the same thing as a single fin.
We filmed a sweet video for the DIY eco tote bags. After filming this in the middle of Waikiki beach, I have more respect for Rachel Ray, Martha Stewart, and Bob Ross now than ever.
I got the most perfect, precise, and rad fishtail braid done by a stylist from the Paul Mitchell tent. And left it in for over 24 hours straight. It was that rad.
My hands are still dyed a little dark blue from all the tie dying leading up to the weekend. But thanks to Pinterest, I found out that the Mr. Clean magic erasers work like a charm to remove die from your skin.
I was thoroughly impressed with how darn creative everyone was, and how versatile neon duct tape is. I’m buying a roll next time I’m at the hardware store.
And finally, everyone who stopped by and told me you followed the blog…I am still smiling. Really. It meant a lot to me, and I hope my bear hugs and enthousiasm didn’t frighten you. Can’t thank you all enough..and feel free to email me any pics.
…ok I’ll stop rambling, but it was such a fun week.
Roxy. I heart you.
