Freeze Your Mind


Lei Chic You might just fro-up if you have one more mid-afternoon pick-me-up that requires you to weigh before paying (the cup of candy-topped frozen creaminess, that is).

East Meets West

Room for Improv


Lei Chic
… and I don’t know how the guy ended up in my apartment!

You realize this joke is a horrible mistake the second it escapes your lips. Crickets chirp. Your co-workers look away, embarrassed for you and the CEO you are currently trying to impress. Time to grin and bear it—and kiss your promotion goodbye.

Tiny Baubles

Lei Chic When it comes to the beach, a little goes a long way.

Like the, ahem, "tiny" three foot waves you scoffed at from the shore that felt more like three building stories once you hit the water. And the itsy bitsy, teeny weeny bikini that landed you the hottie-with-a-body lifeguard.

So it's really no surprise that the ocean's best treasures come in the smallest of packages.
