Frost Bites

Lei ChicThe tradewinds have died down and things are really heating up – your house, your car, and the hair plastered to your sweaty forehead.

You’re thirsting for an icy treat. But the only thing less appealing than the pre-packaged, processed bars stocked in the supermarket freezer is the frigid reception from the sullen girl working the cash register.

Chill out with the new, all-natural shave ice by a familiar East Oahu favorite.

Clayton “Uncle Clay” Chang opened his House of Pure Aloha... Read more »

Steaking New Ground

Lei ChicThirty-four minutes into your lunch hour. All you’ve swallowed is bitterness, after:

· 15 minutes looking for your car on the 4th floor
· 10 minutes finding it on the 6th floor
· 7 minutes looking for your keys in your massive work bag
· 2 minutes swearing after finding them in your pocket

You should’ve just brown bagged it.

And then, the final straw (if you only had even a soda!): you pull up to Kawaihao Street ravenous for Sean... Read more »

Two Days Only - Fashionably Wait

Lei Chic There’s a black out in your closet – basic black dresses, skirts, pants, and a sad collection of dark blouses and shirts.

Luckily, the Lei Chic Mercedes Benz Boutique will recharge your wardrobe with exclusive discounts from six local designers. Here’s a look at what they will be offering.

Teas Me

Lei ChicYou have very specific tastes.
You like them strong, dark, exotic, and not-so-sweet.

Things were hot and steamy with your recent find for months. Now you’re so bored, you’re tempted to bag it.

So you're on the hunt for something that's more your cup of tea - literally.

Fortunately, there is a way to brew-it-yourself.

Black, oolong, green, and white teas all come from the Camellia Sinensis plant and are only distinguished by the amount of processing. We turned to Big Island tea grower and a... Read more »

Centers of Attention

Lei Chic Checkbook – Nope.
Dating life – Not even close.
Office hours versus personal time – Don’t even ask.

Clearly balancing things is not your forte.

You stumble through life on three-inch stilettoes, always teetering on that fine line between brilliance (your outfit) and disaster (your budget).

Fortunately one playful part of your world is always on point - Your favorite mobile sculpture by Bob Thomas.

Glow With the Flow

Lei ChicYou’re hours into your solo sunning session when you really start to feel the heat. That cute guy you’ve been secretly crushing on suddenly appears, and instead of looking tan-tastic you resemble something that rolled in with the tide.

You frantically untangle your dred-ful saltwater do and blot at your oily, sun-shiny face. Now he’s steps away –- yikes! --- and all you have to cover up your least-flattering bikini is that absolutely flab-ulous old sundress that clings to all the wrong places.

Chowed Control

Lei ChicThat’s the way the cookie crumbles –you left the embarrassing proof all over the grocery store floor.

Your little one pulled another dine-and-smash on your shopping trip. Now you’re hot on the trail of cheerio bits and mum mum fragments, searching the aisles for the “no-mess” snack cup she again emptied out then gleefully tossed aside.

Don’t get left in the animal cracker dust. Get a little help with Pineapple Spice snack bags.
