The Road to Hana, Maui

Who woulda thunk it-a winding tourist attraction home to the East side of Maui’s dangerous, mountainous curves. Well our second day in Maui was a 12 hour day trip viewing some of the most breathtaking flora, fauna, scenery, and Hawaiian history all jam packed with 20 other bus riders from the Midwest. The weather really played with us that day; did a little rain dance, got hot, got cold, and almost blew me away off a scary slippery slope! LOL The pictures will illustrate this, passing through different climate zones but I assure you we are still on the island of Maui!

black sandy beaches exist here! :O

Would not have survived without my minty scarf.

Cliff posing before the end of our Hana roadtrip. Must. not. look. down.

Fedoras conceal all. Even the worst undereye bags!!

A hammock was meant to be here, under me lying on it lol

GRADUATION OUTFIT 1

WORK what ya momma gave you!!

A part of me is reminiscing about my Winter graduation; I think it’s all those happy times we all so longingly hold onto. For those of you who are graduating or will be graduating in the near future, not to fret! Cos I created a little Polyvore- type look of sorts of what yours truly will be wearing to my little cousin’s impending graduation.

Things to keep in mind if YOU are not the one graduating:
1. It is not your day and beware because the graduate may be bridezilla.
2. Dress down, but not too down! Think daytime cocktail party.
3. Wear shoes to withstand long periods of time. But if you’re like me, to hell with that and still wear heels!
4. It would be nice to coordinate outfits for photos?
5. If the school you are at is your alma mater then feel free to represent your colored school, patriotic spirit!
