| Blues
.
This year I have seen some of the most incredible blues in the whole world. I've been traveling since January and I've seen the blues of: Mexico, Miami, LA, Thailand, Indonesia, Bahamas, Palm Springs, Cook Islands and now Hawaii...phew!
.
I'm ready for my big chill in Europe this summer, but first! A dip in this perfect Hawaiian blue...
.
Where are you spending the summer this year?

| Aloha
.
Swipe left to see this traditional Hawaiian welcome in motion.
.
We were welcomed back to shore after an incredibly beautiful sunset canoe voyage with a traditional mele Komo or Hawaiian greeting song.
.
And I learned about Honi which is a very special Hawaiian kiss that includes foreheads and noses touching, and shared ha (breath) and mana (spiritual power between two people).
.
What a deeply sacred and spiritual culture it is here in Hawaii. I feel so honored to be here @fairmontorchid, thank you.

| The Stars In You
.
"what can i do
when the night comes
and
i break into stars." - Nayyirah Waheed
.
Have you known this moment in your life? Dedicating this post to @kim.berly.hobbs and @bncunningham. May you feel the stars inside of you so hard that they just gush out.
.
There is no relationship more beautiful in life, than the relationship with ourselves. It is the foundation for how we see the world, and treat others. Do you invest in this relationship?
.
Feeling like the only girl in the whole world on this black sand beach in Hawa'ii...completely held, completely whole.

| Tears
.
For a long time
the tears
ran like
a faucet
abundant
and fierce
full of emotion
.
Today they come
like stars
in the Tahoe night
brilliant
solid
glistening
with a powerful
tug
.
I want to
tether myself
to them
and scream
"Hit it!"
and ride
solemn
through
the night
sky
.
Reckless
brave
fierce
life on fire
.
Diamonds
on my
cheeks
.
I wrote this poem some time ago, it's one of my favorites and you can find it on page 158 in my book @readthesewords which you can purchase on Amazon with the link in my bio. It's my heart in words.
.
I found a new paradise...checked in to @fairmontorchid on The Big Island, and I can already feel her incredible energy.

| Perfect Contrast
.
"We live in an environment of perfect contrast."
.
Perfect because contrast helps us realize what we love, and don't, what feels good and what feels icky, whether we want to stay or go...
.
Sometimes it's easy to focus on contrast as being stuck or out of flow, instead try thanking it for showing you the exact way to what you want.
.
Hawaii is an example of perfect contrasts: soft sand and hard lava...they live side by side and maybe we appreciate each more because of this.
.
I'm off to The Big Island tomorrow, have you been?

| Blissed Out
.
From my balcony in Paris to my lanai on Maui...
.
What happens on your lanai, stays on your lanai. Right?
.
Completely blissed out after an amazing spa treatment at the Willow Stream Spa at @fairmontkealani. The Hawaiian Pa'akai was one of the most indulgent and incredible spa treatments I've ever had. It involved a full body scrub with Hawaiian sea salt (pa'akai) and then a full body rinse under their state-of-the-art vichy shower with infra-red light therapy...all of this floating on a bed of water!
.
Feeling pampered here for sure! What kind of spa treatments do you love? And, am I the only one who sunbathes topless on their private lenai?

| Allez les bleu!
.
Interrupting my Maui story today to show you where I've landed in real time. I couldn't be more excited to be right here, and I'm so happy for all of my French copains who are celebrating Bastille Day and the World Cup Finals this weekend!
.
Paris is my home for the rest of the year, and I'm wrapping myself in all things French until further notice!
.
Swipe left to see how I celebrated Bastille Day last night and watch my Story for more Paris shares daily.
.
In the meantime, I have so much more to tell you about my trip to Hawaii a few weeks ago...
.
Off to watch the game! Who do think will win?

| Early Bird
.
Not a soul in sight... When you feel like you have the whole place all to yourself.
.
Where would you hangout? Beach, pool, lawn, cabana...? It's an embarrassment of riches!

| Light
.
Ironically this keeper of the light doesn't keep it at all, but shares it nightly in a ritual at @fairmontkealani. You are magic @damonmartinfitness.
.
I'm drawn to people who share their light, and most of these people do it without even trying. It oozes out of them, or graces out of them, because they ARE light.
.
Happy new moon, Friday the 13th, eclipse day, loves. There is big magic in the air, can you feel it? I love you.

| Summer Attire
.
Half of my suitcase is filled with my official summer attire: swimmies!
.
Thank you @pacificdreamphotography for the fun photo shoot! Every guest staying at @fairmontkealani gets a complimentary photo shoot during their stay...how cool is that?

| O'o Farms
.
By far one of my very favorite parts of this trip was visiting O'o Farms, a beautiful organic farm with an on-site chef for a really delicious and authentic field-to-table dining experience, and this farm produces artisanal Maui-grown coffee that is award-winning and spectacular.
.
We toured the farm with Ancil, who is a highly trained and respected coffee Q and the grower of this exquisite coffee. This farm will produce 422 bags of premium coffee this year with the signature bag selling for $90.
.
Did you know that Hawaii is the only state that can commercially produce coffee? And that coffee is the second most traded commodity to oil?
.
Swipe left to see how I spent the morning on the farm, and to watch Ancil show us the proper way to taste coffee. Yes, there's a proper way!
.
You can order O'o Farms coffee online, it would make the perfect beautiful gift for any coffee lover in your life...or yourself!
