Glass Drinking Straws



I love this straw!!!This is what I have been saying all day.
I've been drinking through a new glass straw from 
glass dharma (they are handmade in the USA) . I wanted something safer than plastic since my daughter and I use straws, so I decided to try glass.

If you want to feel decadent, opulent, and environmentally friendly try it out. My  daughter loves drinking out of it too. It is luxurious and fun and will be the talk of your lunch party, but it is also very practical. They are safer for you -no chemicals leaching toxins from plastic, sustainable, durable, suitable for hot and cold drinks, and dishwasher safe. Using glass will also save you money because they are reusable. The straws are around $6.00 and come in different sizes.  If you are concerned about cleaning them, they have special cleaning brushes that are easy to use.  

We just used four of them tonight and it took me a couple of seconds to wash with the brushes!

Hawaiian Beach Girl Jewelry




Summer Lovin' Hoops


Aloha! Let me introduce you to a local Hawaiian handmade jewelry online shop, "Beach Girl Jewels." 
The artist has a knack for using natural shells and metals to create gorgeous pieces.  She also uses eco-friendly products, as well as found materials such as rare shells and seaglass. The photography of the jewelry is also professional and lovely.  I like that she lives right here on Oahu and that her etsy shop is very reasonably priced.  You will pay much more for items like this in stores.


Peacock Pearl Apo Lima
I received a pair of her large handmade 14k Gold fillhoops with  iridescent abalone shells that literally change color in the sunshine.  I absolutely love the gold with the multi colored abalone shell.  They are beautiful and go with everything!!! 


I am also in love with everything else in her shop like these rare sunrise shell earrings below:)
Visit Beach Girl Jewels and have fun shopping! Chasing The Sunrise

Mighty Leaf Iced Tea Giveaway


I have been to quite a few high teas and am very picky about what kind of tea I drink.  At the top of my list is Mighty Leaf., particularly their organic tea and the orange dulce! You can taste the difference instantly. 
Iced Tea and MixersMighty Leaf also makes iced Teas.

Whether planning a summer BBQ, hosting a baby shower luncheon or just looking for a way to survive the sweltering summer, iced tea is the quintessential, low-cal summer beverage. Adored by tea lovers as well as fine dining restaurants and resorts, Mighty Leaf Tea (http://www.mightyleaf.com), is pleased to launch its all-new Mighty Leaf Iced Teas. 


Featuring hand-blended, whole-leaf tea leaves, luscious fruits and aromatic herbs in the industry’s original eco-friendly tea pouch, a half-gallon of gourmet Mighty Leaf Iced Tea can be freshly-brewed and savored in less than five minutes


I tried the Calypso mango tea the other day and loved the authentic mango flavor. I also experimented with using tea in mixed cocktails.  It really adds great flavor and creativity to a cocktail.  
The Ginger Peach Iced Tea is amazing as well.  These whole Leaf Pouches are made from sun-swelled peaches and delicate ginger that infuse a refreshing blend of Indian black tea leaves. A blissful and lightly sweet fresh-brewed iced tea with a golden hue.

 The flavors include:

    • Sunburst Green Iced Tea:  A cool and vibrant fresh brewed iced green tea, it delivers the crisp taste of sun ripened oranges and sweet citrus that brighten mountain-grown Chinese green tea leaves. The lowest in caffeine among all four flavors. 
    • Ginger Peach Iced Tea:  A blissful and lightly sweet fresh-brewed iced tea, this black leaf tea is infused with sun-swelled peaches and delicate ginger.
    • Calypso Mango Iced Tea:  A sweet and cooling fresh-brewed iced tea with an indulging blend of luscious mango and tropical fruit that drench South Indian black tea leaves. 
    • Organic Black Iced Tea:  Made of refreshingly rich and smooth South Indian organic black tea leaves that are hand-picked on the dewy slopes of the Nilgiri mountains, these vibrant organic tea leaves unleash a fresh iced tea with dark amber hue.
       GIVEAWAY:
      One lucky winner will receive a Summer Brewing Kit featuring a box of each of four Mighty Leaf teas.
