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!

Gold mining is a practice that has been around for decades. It has helped us create the most beautiful pieces of jewellery, before we realized the impact it has on the environment. We’ve seen itravage landscapes, contaminate water supplies, and contribute to the destruction of vital ecosystems.
As we put sustainability at the core of our brand, it is a no-brainer for us that Luna & Rose needs to be created in a closed-loop production. But while we’re at it, what exactly is a closed-loop production? To put it simply, it means that everything we produce comes back to us in order to be re-used, one way or another. In that sense,we source recycled Sterling Silver that has been extracted from old electronics, phones and jewellery and then purified and brought back to its original perfect form -shiny Sterling Silver.
Luna & Rose is so excited to launch our latest initiative: The Golden Giveback project! As part of our ever-evolving journey to sustainability, we want to invite you to join us in our closed loop production. By doing so, we’re making sure to produce the least amount of waste possible, and recycling what we already have.
Our necklaces come in a variety of lengths from 18" to 23". Our 18" chain necklace is made from our Fine Chain with the 20" and 23" length chains in our 'Everyday' Chain. These are the same chain design, just slightly heavier in weight for the longer lengths. For a rough guide (as we all have different, amazing bodies) the 23" chain sits around or just above your nipple line...
We're big fans of layering necklaces and I'm pretty sure you are too. All of our chains are adjustable in length by 2" to make sure you can style your layers to perfection and mix them up with other pieces in your jewellery wardrobe.
Although all necklaces are adjustable, for the perfect layered look we suggest that you purchase your necklaces on different length chains. This way you get to see the beauty of both pendants and there's less chance of scratching! We also personally like wearing the smallest pendant on the shorter length and the larger heavier pendants longer. That's just our personal choice though, we're all awesome & individual humans and ultimately you get to decide how you style your pieces!
Below is a little guide of some of our favourite pieces layered and their lengths:
|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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Luna & Rose chain bracelets also have a 2" adjustable chain length with a clasp. Therefore they have two/three size options for you. They sit at a total circumference of approx 16cm & 17.5cm
If you require any other sizes for any of our items, please just let us know and we will see what we can whip up for you! You can contact us here.
