Hawaii has been on my travel hot list for a while now. And while I patiently wait until the time is right to pop my Hawaiian cherry, there's no stopping me researching what my upcoming holiday on the islands might look like. Local Hawaiian babe Casey Evansrecently got the pallet warmed up and excitement flowing for a visit to Oahu. It was after chatting with her that the REAL research began. Here I share with you 4 unique experiences that I have penciled in for my trip to Hawaii, discovered over on my favourite Air Bnb!
If a tropical rain forest escape is what you came to Hawaii for then look no further that this beautifully constructed, Bamboo Tree House. Located in amongst the dense Jungle on the Big Island of Hawaii, this unique and purpose built Tree house will have you back with nature and completely switched off from City civilization as soon as you arrive. From a hanging Bed to the 360 degree views through the jungle, this tropical paradise is just what the doctor ordered. Nestled on top of stilts 15 feet up in the canopy of the local flora, enter this rain forest retreat via the trapdoor and let the worries of the world fall at the wayside. With the Volcano National Park 10 miles away, this ones for the nature lovers. I’m in!

If the fact that Jimmi Hendrix stayed here in the 70’s isn’t enough to make you want to visit this cute little Gingerbread home on Maui then I don’t know what is! Completely refurbished by its current owners with deliciously smelling Cedar, the wooden interior will make you feel like your in a secluded jungle paradise all night long! Located on an organic nursery (And home to MANY fruit orchards), this home is just 20 minutes from the airport and 5 mins from Paia and Haiku townships making for a perfect Hawaiian base on Maui. She’s also positioned 1000 metres above sea level, making for slightly cooler temperatures than down by the coast and a perfect sleeping situation! Maui, I’ll see you soon….

She may not be winning Air b n b of the year because of it’s luxe décor but she will be winning Air bnb of the year due to it’s killer views and indoor / outdoor living! Said best by the host “Come and enjoy an Epic, Unique, and Unforgettable Vacation here in this supercharged, elemental power spot - 3 miles away from the base of the most active Volcano on Earth”. This place is an absolute must stay if you are you’re on The Big Island. Sleeping up to 7 people, its like a camping mission gone glamping hanging out in this large open air loft. The fact that you can sit back and watch live Lava flow from your bed? I think that’s a Hawaiian must do from me!
Oh and did I mention the Geothermal pools in the area, the tide pools for snorkelling just down the road and the Night Markets in local Pahoa? Get booking Chica’s!

Proclamied as "The ultimate retreat for surfers, yogis and nature lovers" this jungle bungalow overlooks one of the most famous surf spots on the north shore. Not for the faint hearted, this tree top abode is situated atop a 100 stair workout – Alas you will not be disappointed with the views! Nestled among black lava rock and shaded by a canopy of Banyan, mango, avocado trees, your tree top paradise awaits your steep incline. After a big day catching barrels, snorkeling at nearby beaches or hiking one of the many trails on the island, your tree top paradise allows you to fall asleep listening to the light crashing waves and wake up to the sweet sound of birds in the trees. Trust me, this place is exactly what you came to Hawaii for. With your own private Yoga platform situated amongst the tropical bush, I could see myself parked up here for weeks on end!

Calling all Pasta Lovers, Far & Wide! Centered in our favourite country of Italy, we have created this blog post not only as a little holliday escape around Italy but to help give you a deeper understanding of that carbo-heavy, winter-loving Pasta obsession that I know you all have.
Have you ever wondered where (and why?) those delicious Pasta dumplings served in juicy sauce come from exactly? How bout Spaghetti, is it the long-lost cousin of fettuccine or were they born at the same time in different areas? And delicious potato pasta balls (aka Gnocchi) ummm, HELLO, where on earth did YOU come from!?
Let’s be real here…. A good looking platter is not only the perfect piece of Pintrest Porn but a delicious piece of real life edible art – and who’s complaining about that!? Aperitivo hour – the two hours around sunset time – may just be my favourite time of the day due to the snacks & platters that manifest and appear across the globe at this time. We took to pinterest to scope out some killer platters that we can't wait to replicate... Read on for more inspiration.
Our necklaces come in a variety of lengths from 15" (Petites & almost a Choker length) to 23". Our 15", 16" and 18" length necklaces all come in our Fine Chain with the 20" and 23" length chains in our 'Everyday' Chain which is slightly heavier in weight. All items in the La Luna Rose shop clearly label the length of the chain used for that design. Unless otherwise stated, all necklaces are adjustable by 1"/2.5cm in length. Below is a diagram of how our chain lengths sit on a body. If you have a large breast area, you may find that the 23" length chain sits in between your boobs...a good thing or bad, I'm not sure, that's up to you!
|CHARITY & SALLY T-SHIRT MEASUREMENTS||SMALL (Size 6-10)||MEDIUM (Size 10-14||LARGE (Size 14-16)|
It is important to note that different countries have different sizing methods.
Most of the world goes by number sizing which is the easiest and most accurate.
Because we sell our jewellery all over the world, we have decided to stick with number sizing and have put together the below chart to help you out. The most common size for ladies is a size 7 and size 10 for man. If you are unsure of your size you can measure the inner diameter of one of your own rings and refer to the below measurements.
Feel free to email us at email@example.com if you have any further issues.
Please also note that if you are ordering a wide band ring, its usually a good idea to go up a size.
Size 6 = Ring Sizes L, M, N. Inner Diameter measures 16.5mm
Size 7 = Ring Sizes N, O, P. Inner Diameter measures 17.3mm
Size 8 = Ring Sizes P, Q, R. Inner Diameter measures 18.1mm
Size 9 = Ring Sizes R, S, T. Inner Diameter measures 18.9mm
If you require a ring in a different size in any of the designs offered, please send us an email here and we will see what our clever silversmiths can do for you.
