The Missed List - May

The days are getting longer. Your attention span at work is definitely getting shorter.

It’s a case of full-blown spring fever, so you’re not feeling so hot about those tedious office tasks like rifling through your ever exploding e-mail inbox.

Never fear. To make sure you didn't miss out on any of our new must haves, here is a roundup of favorite finds from May.

Lei Chic Baking News
Let Them Eat Cupcakes shop

Since we introduced you to Let Them Eat Cupcakes, former Honolulu Advertiser workers Kawehi Haug and Nick Gervais have been extremely busy – selling out. The delish cupcakes and mouthwatering buttercream frostings go so quickly that Haug and Gervais have had to close early almost every day in their first month. Here’s a tip: check the daily flavors on the just launched website, then call 808.531.CAKES and preorder your favorites. The cupcakes most likely to run out first are red velvet, chocolate mint, lilikoi and snickerdoodle.

Discount drinks and pupus already leave us with a smile. But getting it with the least amount of work has us grinning beer to beer. Happy Hour Hawaii’s searchable database of happy hour menus has the details on more than 70 spots and the list is still growing. It’s also added a few bars and restaurants from Maui, Kauai and the Big Island.

How to fix snags and holes in your sweaters
Finally, someone tells us what to do with those little packets of yarn that came with your clothes and are now spilling out of your dresser drawer. Seamstress Susan Medina introduces us to a $2 and 10-second fix for snags. And her instructions for fixing holes are so simple, even those who can barely even thread a needle can patch like a pro.
