Not drunk like that.... read more to find out.
As some of you may know I spent the week in the Big Island, Hawaii. This trip was super spontaneous, found really cheap flight tickets on Southwest and my best friend Marissa already had an Airbnb Booked with her and three other friends that I didn’t really know.
I was nervous at first. I honestly have never been on a true “girls trip” but the timing felt right & decided to go, and I am so glad I did.
Let me first start with saying that I know on instagram you might think “wow it’s so lucky these girls get to go on these trips, must be nice…” BUT ALL of us worked every morning at 4am. We worked hard on the computers, did meetings, etc. and then spent time enjoying the day after that. That’s why working remote is so amazing!
We also ALL stuck to some of our routines, taking our supplements, drinking water, meditating, keeping on track with our healthy habits in the best way we could, without pressure and with a lot of flexibility. Oh and of course I did my hang everyday!
So here’s a little recap in case you ever want to go to Hawaii:
👉🏻 Yoga: at the Beach with @bigislandyoga, we did this at Old Airport Beach and it was me, the three other girls and four other ladies in their 40s! You do the yoga WITH headphones on so you can listen to music and hear the instructor! Doing Yoga on the beach was actually a lot tougher since you were in the sand.
👉🏻 Surfing: in the morning, took a lesson and this is where some of the fun begins. The water was so clear and beautiful, there was yellow fish swimming everywhere. I have surfed many times but the girls hadn’t but they did great! Our instructor Koi, did an amazing job!
👉🏻 Hanging with the Locals: After, Koi took us back to Magic Sands Beach and he introduced us to his friend Jordan! Jordan is a Native to the island, he has NEVER left, and boy he was a character. He climbs up coconut trees, cuts them up and told us about the benefits of coconuts and how there are hundreds of different kinds on the island. He said his record of drinking coconuts in one day is 26!!! Here’s some awesome benefits of coconut water (and I mean natural coconut water, not the processed kind). Jordan swears he gets a natural energy boost which he liked to call "drunk off coconuts" from all the natural properties.
It boasts electrolytes such as potassium, sodium and magnesium, all of which help to replenish lost nutrients. What that means is it’s something good to drink after exercise or during a mild illness. (So basically it’s the earth’s LMNT lol)
We then went to the beach he wanted to show us some Hawaii things!. He took out a Hawaiian avocado and has us spread it on our skin and in our hair….literally we where taking a full avocado and spreading it on ourselves!
Next as that dried and sat on her skin her introduced to Noni, which is super healing. We put the Noni on our faces, eyes or anywhere it was “Calling us to have it”
Then we went to the sand and scrubbed our body with sand (I swear everyone was looking at us like wtf haha ) and washed off in the ocean.
What I loved so much about Jordan, is that he was so in tune with the land, so knowledgable of all the natural things o the island for health. Something I think a lot of us forget.
👉🏻 Swimming with Manta Rays: That night…we were exhausted but we decided to go swim with the Manta Rays…in the dark a boat takes you out to the middle of the ocean, and you swim with these gentle giants. They suck up plankton, look like aliens lol and they legit come up RIGHT next to you. Manta Rays literally…are MASSIVE…so it def was scary but fun! They can be literally 4x the Size of me!
👉🏻 See an Erupting Volcano (or two) The next morning we all woke up early to see the erupting volcano here. Did you know that this is the first time since 1987 that BOTH Volcanos are erupting. Before you say to me..Angela…that’s dangerous lol, these volcano basically drool, they don’t explode so we were able to see the “liquid hot magma” for far away but it was epic!
👉🏻 Horseback ride to Waterfalls: Next up we went horseback riding to some waterfalls. My horses name was Cisco! Cisco loves snacking Just like me!! And a we were on the ride we learned more about the history of the land, the agriculture, cattle and more brought to the island.
👉🏻Drove up to the Tallest mountain In the world to see the LARGEST observatory in the world. Literally going from wearing bikinis to bundled up in winter jackets in the same day! The sunset was epic, the stars were epic & it was incredible to have experienced that. Before you say Mt. Everest is the largest in the world…take a second to google it. We were shocked too!

These are some things that have greatly impacted my life or that I use daily!
Slate Choclate Milk!
Super pumped to be an OFFICIAL Partner with SlateMilk and Slatemilk Athlete! What is Slate? It's ultra-filtered lactose free Milk! The creators of this company LOVED choclate milk (as do I), but they kept getting frustrated with how gross the ingredients where and they were also lactose and tolerant! Slate is ultra-filtered AND has 20g of protein! It literally so freaking good ! Check them out below!
The Mountain is YOU!
I am obsessed with this book! All about self sabotage and how to conquer it! It's an easy read!
Water Filter System
Tap water has so many contaminates in it! I keep having to lug heavy gallons of water up three flights of stairs in my apartment before I finally invested in this filter! It's super cute, easy to use, affordable, and the filters last 6 months to a year
I have Bunions...gross right? These toe spacers are great! I wear them every morning to help keep my toes in alignment and prevent and other issues! Its basically like a retainer for your toes!
