The Missed List
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 inbox.
We got the e-message. To help you catch up, here is a roundup of our favorite finds from May.
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, not to mention the mouthwatering buttercream frostings, go so quickly that Haug and Gervais have had to close early almost every day their first month. Here’s a tip: check out 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.

Fresh new bags for the summer
Early summer is kind of a quiet time in the fashion industry. So why not bump up your style over your shoulder? We just checked and Lan Nguyen has materials for a few more of her cheery nautical totes, Guava Shop is getting ready to order more of its new exotic, gauzy Mushimina bags (we saw fewer than five left in store), and Therapy is planning to bring in added Cory Labangs to go along with the striking black-and-white satchel.

Happy Hour Hawaii’s search engine
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 simple enough for those who can barely even thread a needle.
