Monsarrat Ave Shave Ice is my new favorite shave ice stand. Hidden between two restaurants, it’s located in a little cute alley way on Monsarrat Avenue. For those who aren’t from Hawaii and familiar with shave ice, here’s a quick description.
Based on Japanese kakigori, their ice machine plows out some of the fluffiest shave ice I’ve ever had, and they offer flavors such as yuzu and green tea. I love that their syrup is homemade and uses real fruit juice. I was also surrounded by cute little cacti and trinkets, as I enjoyed my shave ice.
My friends and I got ourselves acai and green tea topped with ice cream, condensed milk, and mochi balls. It was so yummy. I’ll definitely be back for seconds~
I’m a sucker for cute things. Teddy bears on a pair of sneakers with bright yellow laces?!
Shut up and take my money forreal.
Study Footwear, an LA based shoe company, offers a collection of sneakers with amazing prints. I had a hard time picking between the teddy bears and french fries print. I was lucky enough to snatch the last pair in my size on ShopJeen. With a flat sole, they’re pretty comfy. Love the red accents on the shoes, and it comes with an extra pair of coral colored laces if you’re finding it hard to rock yellow.
I get so happy every time I put them on haha.
When it comes to very natural looking color contacts, I love Solitica’s Hidrocharme lenses in Ocre. For those who aren’t familiar with this brand, it’s a quite popular contact lens company from Brazil known for their natural-like patterns. My favorite lens from Solitica is their hidrocharme line, which has a thick defined limbal ring.

For reference, my natural eye color is dark brown.
- Very natural looking
- Opaque coverage
- 14.2 diameter
- Thicker lens than most contacts
- Comfort needs improvement
- Gets a bit dry after 2-4 hrs in
Overall, I love the color. The lens by itself looks light brown, but in my eyes, blends into a greyish brown. It’s a nice enhancement. I just wish they would improve the material used for their lenses. Anyway, hope that helps! I’ll be back with more~
If you somehow miraculously stumbled across my page, welcome! After realizing that I spend a ridiculous amount of money and time on food, clothes, makeup, and cute things, I’ve decided to start a lifestyle blog based mostly around makeup, fashion, and cute things I want to rant and rave about. I’m still in the process of creating a solid layout for this blog so please bear with me.
