September Favorites: Hawaii Edition!!!

Remember last month??  When I had all of these makeup/beauty favorites?!

Well...totally opposite in September!  Haha!  I still haven't even gotten my Ipsy bag because they sent it to my old address.  I only wore makeup one day while in Hawaii.  It was awesome.

So my September Favorites are some of my favorite moments in Hawaii that were captured on my iPhone.  I have yet to go through my photos on my good camera.  We went all over the island of Kauai!  I hope you enjoy!

(Link up below!!!!  And check out Mia's monthly faves!)

This view from our back porch after the rain...

Call me crazy, but the best hot dog I've had in my life (homemade bread, Polish sausage, mango relish, spicy jalapeno garlic sauce, Hawaiian mustard)...

This moment while we waited to head to the airport for our flight out while watching our last sunset...

  21. OH MY GOSH!!!!! You shared some of my favourite memories in Hawaii. I loved the Menehune Fish Pond - it was such a peaceful viewpoint.

    Did you go to the Smith Family Luau? It looks like the one I attended.

    PUKA DOG! OMG - I crave those like the dickens.

    I loved the Mai Tais. We stayed at a gorgeous little villa (it was super cheap too $95/night)... anyway she double-booked our last night so she put us up at the Sheraton. They had a free Mai Tai hour and oh my, did I ever gobble them up!

    I should dig up my old pics and do a Hawaii post. I would love to go back to Kauai.

    Did you have any coconut shrimp while you were there? We were hooked on a little coconut shrimp stand and went there often.

    Thanks for sharing. Man, did I ever enjoy this!
