Returning to our original inspiration: Hawaii

In celebration of Women’s History Month we continued our Sunset tour with an all female crew of locals. We followed ceramist, Tamiko, cafe owner, Dixie, content creator, Casey, and model, Zoe, to their favorite spots on the famous Northshore. From checking the surf at the crack of dawn to enjoying an acai bowl on the side of the road while waving to friends that drive by, we stepped into a lot of fun. Our flip flops or “slippers” as they call it in Hawaii are an everyday essential. Continue reading to hear more about the ground we covered in Havaianas and meet the girls!

We asked her: what’s your favorite thing about Hawaii?

Her answer: The daily closeness to the jungle and ocean as well as the simple pace it allows you to live around warm hearted people who share the love of the same things :)

Dixie (@dixie_rose)

Ever wonder what it’s like to be a bad a** mama? Just ask Dixie, owner of one of the busiest cafes started in Honolulu’s arts district, Kaka’ako, called Arvo. Mom to 11 year old break dancer, Phoenix, and 5 year old super star in the making, Rosie, Dixie still finds time for jewelry creations for her Studio Dixie line

We asked her: favorite activity to do with the kiddos?

Her answer: Surfing together

Hawaii

Zoe (@zoestone)

Model, content-creator, yogi and free-diver. Zoe has combined her passion for adventure and mindfulness into a career.

We asked her, with all that traveling you do, what is the special thing that always brings you back to Hawaii? 

Her answer: I lived in 12 different places by the time I turned 13 and that’s when my family moved to Oahu. Although I continue to travel a lot as an adult, I always gravitate back to Hawaii because I get to see my family and friends while still continuing to pursue all of my passions — sailing, free-diving, hiking, yoga, and taking photos.

We asked her: what excites you most about motherhood?

Her answer: Getting to see the world through a child’s eyes again. The mundane and ordinary becomes magical. Being able to experience a whole other level of love you’ve never felt before
