My trip to Hawaii was the definition of paradise. A tropical resort plus amazing shopping. By pure coincidence, we arrived in the week of the Black Friday Sales. No one believes us when we insist it was a pure accident. But I swear it was. We shopped from 9am on the Thursday to 4am on Black Friday morning. I think shopping is the only form of exercise that doesn’t make me feel tired. By the end of the trip, we were 3 girls who had very little U.S. currency left and were counting our dollar bills reserving for the taxi ride to the airport. It was a great trip (and very productive in terms of the amount of shopping done). For those going to Oahu, Hawaii I really recommend the Waikele Outlet for the awesome Kate Spade outlet. I picked up a few goodies from Saks Off 5th too. And if you just want to browse and have brought a credit card, Ala Moana Center has pretty much everything.
And yes I did more than just shopping in Hawaii. Visited some amazing sites and took many many photos. I met a few local photographers who kindly showed me around and took some great shots for my blog. My photographer Barry and I started shooting outside the Westin Resort, which has an amazing grand design. This location was one of my favourites to shoot at.
