For the sixth installment of my luxury shopping guide, we're going to visit the Chanel Hawaii Waikiki store located on Luxury Row. This store is a little bit farther from Waikiki Beach than most of the other luxury stores, but at least that means there are fewer tourists and people to deal with. If I'm not lucky enough to make it over to France, buying Chanel in Hawaii is my next favorite place. In my

For the fifth installment of my luxury shopping guide, we're going to visit the Balenciaga Hawaii Waikiki store on Luxury Row. This store is also located in the renovated International Market Place which houses a lot of other luxury shopping brands like Burberry and Christian Louboutin. It's a two-story store with women's leather goods on the first floor and sneakers, clothing, and men's leather goods all on the second floor. The discount for the Balenciaga Hawaii

For the fourth installment of my luxury shopping guide, we're going to visit the Gucci Hawaii Waikiki store on Luxury Row. The Gucci stores in Hawaii will probably be your next best bet on saving money right after the Gucci Outlet. If you haven't had a chance to learn about the Gucci Outlet, I made a full blog post about it here. Otherwise, if you are visiting Hawaii and are looking for the newest Gucci

For the third installment of my luxury shopping guide, we're going to visit the Christian Dior Hawaii Waikiki store on Luxury Row. This store is located in the T Galleria Shopping Mall which is a duty-free mall. This means, in addition to the special Hawaii discount, you don't have to pay any tax. It's like a double discount! Unfortunately, not everything is discounted though. For example, women's shoes do not have a special Hawaii discount,

For the second installment of my luxury shopping guide, we're going to visit the Saint Laurent Hawaii Waikiki store on Luxury Row. This store has a special place in my heart because this is where I bought my first YSL item ever. We were in Oahu celebrating a friend's bachelorette party and decided one day to all go shopping together. My plan was to only be a spectator and just watch all the other girls

You may be wondering why I'm dedicating a shopping guide to Louis Vuitton Hawaii. For people that don't know, Hawaii actually has discount pricing on a lot of luxury brand names. First, I thought this was a scam because why would luxury goods be "cheaper?" Surprisingly, this is absolutely true. Outside of Europe, Hawaii is the next best place to buy luxury goods. On top of that, Hawaii's tax is much lower than the mainland

It truly is a strange time to be traveling to Hawaii during COVID right now. Almost exactly one year ago, a group of us were off to Oahu to celebrate my birthday for four days. It was the first big group trip I've done in a while and I was so excited. Deep down, I was also nervous because a new virus was coming out of China and making its way around the world. Hawaii

Colorado

Earlier this year, we were lucky enough to visit Colorado and stay at the beautiful Sheraton Steamboat Resort Villas. A little back story to this is that we were supposed to stay here for a week-long snowboarding trip the previous season. My friend had a timeshare at the Sheraton and planned a trip for all of us. Unfortunately, this same friend also bought a motorcycle for himself the same year. He took it out on

Everyone seriously needs to stay at one of these tiny homes at Escalante Escapes. It's located in Escalante, Utah and is right outside Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. Out of all the places we've been, we were surprised to find such luxurious accommodations in a very small town. I mean this is a type of town where we had Subway and breakfast sandwiches from a gas station for our meals. It was going to be

Have you heard of Peek-a-Boo and Spooky Slot Canyons? Well, I hadn't until I was searching for hikes to do at Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. If you have been following along on my previous posts, you would know we just visited Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park. The last stop on our Utah trip was Grand Staircase Escalante (GSE) National Monument. I wished we could have traveled farther to Capitol Reef, Canyonlands,
