Sponsored Edition: Control Your Splurges

Lei ChicFor an entire month you’ve been a veritable angel. You haven’t cursed once, nor have you had a single sip of alcohol. You literally are living in a Disney Family Classic movie.

But you came dangerously close to Lenting yourself go last night. At your bestie’s party you nearly cursed when someone handed you a beer. Then, in a fit of deprived rage, you headed straight to the table of desserts.

Clearly, you need a calorie-free release. Fortunately, shopping is not on your “to don’t” list, so find some retail therapy in new spring styles arriving daily at Royal Hawaiian Center.

Start with something naughty (but not off-limits) like P.J. Salvage’s super feminine lingerie at mocchin. In adorable pinstripe patterns with darling little details like eyelet lace trim and tiny bows, you can finally break out of that G-rated film you’ve been stuck in all month.

Lei ChicWhile you’re still feeling sultry, stop by Allure Swimwear and snap up a new suit from Agua Bendita Swimwear. This Columbian line (in general, we always trust South Americans for sexy swimwear) is for the girl who is modern, sophisticated, confident and wants to be noticed. Not to mention the way-sexy tops and bottoms fit perfectly on your new no-cookies-for-a-month body.

You know what would look really great with that new bikini? A bold necklace. Jams World’s Playita Necklace makes a statement, in a casual way, with sustainably harvested Açaí, Pambil, Tagua and Chonta. Plus the unique bead and loop closing makes it just the right fit without having to fiddle with difficult clasps.

Think of these new additions to your wardrobe as the perfect way to indulge without blowing your commitment. A few restraining orders, if you will.

Royal Hawaiian Center is located in Waikiki at 2201 Kalakaua Avenue. For more information, call (808) 922-2299 or go to Royal Hawaiian Center’s new website.
