From what I understand, most men are pretty easy going when it comes to the antiperspirant and deodorant that they use. I've seen some guys decide on a purchase based on greatest amount of product for least amount of money spent.Read more

When it comes to shaving products, I'm the type of gal who thinks that men's products are superior to the stuff marketed to women. First, shaving creams and shave gels that are made for men are pretty no-nonsense. All the same ingredients as women's products, at a fraction of the cost.Read more

Sometimes the mosquitoes in Hawaii are ridiculous! Normally they don't bother me much, but those times when the mosquitoes are after me they won't give up for anything. Certainly makes me sympathize with the guests who stay at the bed and breakfast where I work.Read more

This stuff works as great as it smells! I am very fair skinned, and I can't seem to tan to save my life, but that doesn't keep me from spending as much time as possible in the warm Hawaiian sun, frolicing in the waves of the Pacific Ocean and pretending to be a bronzed beach bunny.Read more

Hawaii is a tropical paradise with 12 of the world's 14 different climate areas. We're talking rainforest, marsh, and lush tropical zones that also come chock full of mosquitoes. During the rainy season (late spring to early summer) it rains every day.Read more

I'm not impressed with this deodorant, at all. When I first purchased Tom's of Main All-Natural Deodorant Stick I picked out the apricot scent thinking it would be a great way to fight odor, naturally, without aluminum and other icky ingredients.Read more

Nothing ruins a fantastic Hawaiian vacation quite like a sunburn. I see a lot of sunburns come through the bed and breakfast where I work, and that's why I try to always keep some banana boat aloe vera after sun gel on hand.Read more

I don't know why plumping lip glosses tend to find their way into my makeup kit, I don't actually go out looking for something that brags plumping properties. Really, I just go for something inexpensive in a color I find pleasing, with not too much pigment.Read more

It's hot and humid here in Hawaii, kind of like a perfect summer day every day of the year. While the weather is ideal for fun in the sun, it's not really hospitable to makeup.Read more

I work for a busy bed and breakfast on the big island of Hawaii, we make smoothies every day, and also grind up fresh wheat berries for the homemade bread we bake each day. As such, I use the blender each and every day, sometimes multiple times for various recipes and baking needs.Read more
