I truly love this North Shore of Oahu, and I am so thankful I get to live here. I happen to think that the North Shore is one of the most beautiful, fun, and exciting places in the world. It’s the perfect mix of small town, country living, tropical beaches, great surf, and well, I just love it here. I also happen to believe that in this one small area, you’ll find some of the best food, shopping, galleries, and markets anywhere! That’s why I wanted to create my North Shore Favorites Category. And today I introduce to you the newest thing on the menu— North Shore Favorite Shopping!
Just click on this little link to explore some of these places, and more!
These are some of our favorite places to buy everything from surf gear, to fresh veggies, to pearls, baby gifts, and more! If you live here or have visited, PLEASE comment with anything I’ve left out, or if you have thoughts on places I share. And if you own any of the shops in town (or know someone who does–) I hope you’ll get in touch with me to talk about advertising, or if you’d like me to come do a full review!
NOW: LET’S GET ON TO THE SUMMER GIVEAWAY!! (I know, finally!!!)
As my way of celebrating this new shopping menu, and spreading some ALOHA, I have TWO wonderful Hawaiian GIVEAWAY packages waiting to be sent! One for the groms, and one for the moms!
Let’s start with the kids! The awesome folks at Up&Riding have generously offered to send a pair of RAD board shorts and a hat to one of your kids! Perfect for summer swimming, and looking cool. If your name is picked we’ll get the size of your grom, and Up and Riding will send them directly to you!
The second giveaway is for you moms…to bring a little Aloha to your home and body: Everything in this package is locally made, and promises to make you feel, smell, and look like you’re on a Hawaiian vacation. (Or very close!)
Surfer Salve (fabulous for lips/skin/treating any skin irritations.)
Darling shell earrings, with locally found shells.
Two tropical-scented soaps: Coconut, and Pikake. To. die. for.
“Within,” Face and body spritzer in gardenia scent–all natural and enough to calm your nerves in an instant.
Hibiscus Honey Lemon Tea–to enjoy hot or iced.
All packaged in a Hawaiian woven box–which you could do a thousand things with.
Finally, a tacky tourist lei because it’s what we do.
