Q1. Excited to chat with you today! First question is what are the three best things about living in Hawaii? How has this place influenced you?
One of my favorite things about living in Hawai’i is the sense of community and the feeling of aloha spirit. Second, I feel like my connection to nature is especially strong because I’m constantly surrounded by earth’s beauty. Last and definitely not least is the amazing food. Hawai’i is a mixing pot of many cultures, which means there’s so many types of foods to enjoy at any time!
Growing up in Hawai’i, I learned from a young age to carry the aloha spirit with me wherever I go. I know that even when I leave this beautiful place, I’ll always spread aloha and love because that’s how I was raised.
Q2. You have always been an inspiration for many. We especially love your content encouraging self-care. How has COVID changed your vision and focus in producing content?
The past year I’ve had so much more time to spend on myself, which is a real
blessing because I discovered how important it is to prioritize self-care. I think many of us get caught up in daily struggles and we neglect to give time to ourselves. I made it a little mission of mine to encourage my viewers through my content to give themselves that extra love. It’s something we could all use a little more of and I like to emphasize that in my content.
Q3. What does wearing jewelry as a daily routine mean to you?
Jewelry is my favorite way to express myself because you can change the jewelry you wear depending on your mood/vibe for the day. Some days I’m in a gold mood, others a silver, and some days I like to mix everything together. There’s no right or wrong when it comes to jewelry, it’s all up to you and that’s what I love. I always notice when other people are wearing something unique and enjoy telling them that I like their jewelry. When someone compliments me on mine, it’s the best feeling!
Q4. What intrigues you the most about working with En Route?
The sky’s the limit when En Route. I knew they could help all of my visions come to life. The quality is awesome and you’re bound to get compliments when wearing them!
“Growing up being surrounded by nature, I grew an appreciation for everything around me. ”
Q5. This collection is called Earth and Flower. Where did you get the inspiration and what is the message behind the collection?
Growing up being surrounded by nature, I grew an appreciation for everything around me. From mauka to makai (the mountains to the ocean in Hawaiian), there’s so much beauty out there and these two collections encompass that. Let the Earth and Flower collection inspire you to embrace your natural beauty and remind you to enjoy the beauty that earth has to offer!
Q6. What are the three most romantic things you can think of?
Someone hand writing you letters throughout your relationship and giving them to you as a gift a few years later. Laying on a blanket, watching the sunset, and eating your favorite food with your person as you talk and laugh. Dancing together when there’s music playing like no one else exists
