Hi my name is Thalia and I am a self proclaimed Disneyland-aholic. From the time I was about 3, I started going to Disneyland AT LEAST once a year while I visited my uncle in California, I'm 28, so that's AT LEAST 25 times, did I mention I'm from Hawai'i? Oh and I've been a Disneyland Annual … Continue reading Disneyland-Aholic
It's not fall until you've picked a pumpkin for Halloween. Am I right? It's pretty new thing here in Hawaii. There aren't very many self pick farms here in Hawaii, unlike our mainland counterparts, pumpkin patches have only been around for maaayybeee the last 10 or so years? I could totally be wrong, but I … Continue reading Picking Pumpkins — Waimanalo Pumpkin Patch

When I went to New York recently, it was one of the first stops on my itinerary. Magnolia's started as a small bakery in the west village, and since has expanded to … Continue reading New York City Stops: Magnolia Bakery
I'm a west coast girl through and through. It's a short (short for Hawaiian's because it's the closest piece of land to Hawaii!) 4-5 hour flight, the weather is always nice, and the time difference is not very much; it feels like my second home! I decided however, I would venture outside of my comfort … Continue reading The Beaten Path: 24 Hours in New York City
When I think of Halloween, I think of the movie "Hocus Pocus". It's a pretty unrealistic expectation of what to expect for Halloween in Hawaii. For starters, it doesn't get dark until around 700, and by then we're hungrier than hungry. Next, it almost always, rains and if it doesn't rain it feels like a … Continue reading Halloween in Hawaii
