Get on Board

www.leichic.com
In your last surf session, you got caught in the lineup with faulty swimsuit straps. Instead of getting barreled, you only managed to bare-all.

You need to figure out how to hang ten without hanging loose.

Suit up in Sacred Surf swimwear, the local label that was recently voted one of the “best bikinis for surfing” by Surfline.com. It survived performance tests in the monster waves of Tavarua, and was ranked highly, right alongside surf industry standards like Roxy and... Read more »

Shore Things

www.leichic.com
You may be local, but lately you’ve been dressing like a real Jersey Girl.

A stretch jersey girl to be exact. You’re not sure how it happened. But, somewhere along the line, you amassed a wardrobe of thirty variations on the same solid color tank dress.

For a fresh take on island style, check out the newly launched Tiare Hawai‘i clothing line, chock full of pretty,... Read more »

Circle of Finds

Logo of Play@SavvyCircle

You can still hear your mom saying: “What if all your friends jumped off a cliff? Would you do it, too?” or “I don't care what ‘everyone’ is doing, you’ll do what I say.” What’s worse is Mom was right. The eyebrow-piercing thing really was a fad.

These days you can satisfy your inner wannabe without any regrets by signing up for Play @ Savvy Circle, the new offshoot of online sale-finder Savvy Circle , developed by Punahou grad... Read more »

Good and Thready

www.leichic.com


Goldilocks syndrome. You’ve got it. As least when it comes to your eyebrows.

You want those arches just right, but it seems like you’re always tweezing or waxing way too much or not nearly enough.

Thank goodness the ultra-precise threading technique has finally made it to Honolulu, at the Waxing Company. Long used in India and the Middle East, the hair-removal method uses a cotton thread... Read more »

Home Stretch

You usually love your group workouts at the gym, but sometimes, there’s no place like home. A little breathing room is nice when you feel like stretching solo.

Get the best of both worlds with these local yoga and Pilates classes. Each has a matching DVD, so when you can’t make it into the classroom, you can always do a little homework.

So watch and learn -- the extra effort may just move you to the head of the class.

Weekend Picks - October 8, 2009

www.leichic.com
The only thing worth getting sauced for this weekend? Cold beer and gourmet pizza. And with the best slices in town showing up on bar menus rather than at pizzerias or Italian joints, it’s worth making plans to get a pie and a pitcher at one of these pubs.

V Lounge
The Scene: Part afterhours club, part pre-party lounge, it’s suddenly on the map as a dinner or late-night eats spot, thanks to its newly unveiled pizza menu.

Like Beef?

www.leichic.com


Whenever game day rolls around, you and your guy always beef over what to eat.

He wants pizza, pretzels and potato chips—a calorie fest sure to sink your low-carb diet.

Instead of having a cow, snag a few bags of Chyler’s Hawaiian Beef Chips.

Thin and crispy, they have the same deliciously smoky flavor as traditional beef jerky. But instead of being tough and chewy, they have the oh-so-satisfying crunch of potato chips, so you get the same savory satisfaction minus all the refined starch.

Thin and crispy, they have the same deliciously smoky flavor as... Read more »
