Celebrate With Your “hoapili” in Paradise

 

HOAPILI is the Hawaiian word for CLOSE FRIEND
 

You definitely won’t be the same person at the Hanalei Bay Resort that you are at home. You and the girls will experience true paradise. Here the world moves a little more slowly. Smiles replace frowns. Stress dissipates. Instinct takes precedence over intellect.  The spirit of Aloha truly starts to mean something.

 

Hanalei Bay Resort is what your mind pictures when you think of a Pacific paradise. Soft, white sand beach. Tradewind-cooled days. Cobalt-blue ocean. Plumeria-scented nights.

134 spacious one bedroom suites overlook either tropical courtyards or wide expanses of open, blue ocean.

 
Surrounded by 45 challenging holes of golf.Princeville Resort’s Prince and Makai golf courses feature some of Hawaii’s most beautiful golf holes, all from the vivid imagination of world-famous golf course architect, Robert Trent Jones, Jr.
Tennis on our eight plexi-paved courts becomes even more challenging when you can’t decide whether to keep your eye on the ball or the view.
 

Luscious Pan Pacific cuisine.

Gentle tradewinds cool the open-air Bali Hai restaurant while stunning sunsets enhance the experience of dining at perhaps the most romantic spot on Kauai’s North Shore.

The Pashmina Store Provides The Perfect Fall Accessory

cheetahprintpashmina.jpgI have to admit, up until 2 months ago accessorizing was a thing of the past for me. With two small children, working, housework, etc. I was lucky if I left the house with my clothes matching never mind coordinating earrings, scarves or bags. But I finally turned that corner where my children are a little older and my routine is more streamlined and I find I do have a couple minutes to give myself a more polished, pulled-together look.The trick I discovered is to find pieces with real punch. Instead of going for the matchy-matchy necklace, bracelet and belt find a dramatic piece that works with most of your wardrobe and you will always look fabulous and confident.

My go-to item this season is the Cheetah Animal Print Pashmina from The Pashmina Store. It’s lightweight yet luxurious cashmere and silk blend will make it the perfect cover up for fall. Pair it with dark jeans and some peep toe patent leather or cheetah print pumps would be perfect for a night out on the town.

Draped over a black turtleneck with this season’s wide leg pants takes you right into winter.

The greatest thing about the animal print pashmina is when worn tastefully (and you can’t get more tasteful than a pashmina) animal prints are always in style. Having said that, for the same price of a Lia Sophia necklace (another staple in my accessory arsenal) I have a cashmere/silk blend pashmina that will never go out of style.

About The Pashmina Store

The Pashmina Store is a family-run business that specializes in authentic pashmina products in an array of unusual colors. The Pashmina Store also prides itself on superior customer service by offering free shipping, stocked products, 30-day return policy and one-day in the mail turnaround time. Plus satisfaction is guaranteed!

Since it was founded in 2000, The Pashmina Store has sold more than 100,000 pashmina products, including hundreds of this popular royal purple wrap. Most orders are for two or more pashminas and repeat business stands at 25 percent and growing.
