(Pick your) Pocket Tee

My beautiful, wonderful…. and very creative sister, Ersa Millon, started a fashion fad in her school by sewing DIY pockets on solid crew-neck shirts.  Initially this is her individual attempt to raise funds for a event she’s been desperately wanting to go since her freshman year in high school- a school trip to New York City!   The incredible response from her classmates and peers—amazing!

Pick your pocket, and there you have it! 

I have no doubt that she will sell a lot of these pocket tees.  Which, is why my darlings, I am telling the whole world about it 😉

I heard it through the grapevine that there is a boutique in Cali picking up this PocketTee idea and want her to be involved in designing the line. I am so proud of my sissy.  Seventeen years old and already on her way to establishing her own signature line.

I fully support her 101%, therefore I would like to share with you all some of the pocket tees Ersa created.

They are on sale for $12 each.  Available in Adult Sizes S, M, L in black, gray and other various colors.

If you are interested in ordering, please email me, or visit Ersa’s Etsy.

Love,

Honey

My mother’s daughter….

I am my mother’s daughter…
I am her legacy.
I am my mother’s mirror.

I hope that in heaven, she feels the love reflecting from me…my sisters, and my brother.

Because we are our mother’s children.
We are her legacy.

Happy Birthday, Mama.  We all love you very much.

Born on August 1st, our mother would have turned 50 years old today, although she would always be no older than thirty-six in our memories.

Our mother was the most beautiful woman I know-

flawless fair skin, lustrous jet-black hair, dark almond shaped eyes.  Growing up I remember she would walk into a room and everyone would just turn to look at her.

I remembered thinking someday I wanted to have that effect on people. The kind of effect that would just immobilize people because of your presence.

Our mother was as beautiful inside as she was outside- always thinking the good in others, trusting them and loving them so unconditionally even though her heart broke into tiny little pieces doing so.  She was alluring, as she was tragic.

Our mother watches us from heaven.  We feel her presence in our daily lives.  I am her eldest daughter, and I made a promise to her.  My siblings- they know in my own way I am going to keep this promise.  Every year, on the first of August, on our mother’s birthday, I remember this promise and how close I am to fulfilling this.

Mothers Daughter

Because I am my mother’s daughter.

Oh-So-Cuteness! Teddy Bear World Hawaii

After spending a lovely and delicious Mother’s Day Brunch at Tiki’s in the Aston Hotel at Waikiki, the boyfriend took me to a neverending world of cuteness, The Teddy Bear World Hawaii, a new attraction in the heart of the Waikiki across the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center.

It made me feel like a five-year-old girl again.

There were hundreds of bears dressed, and placed in everything you could imagine… From the eight wonders of the world, to an era in the land before time. We even got to see a private concert from the Teddy Bear Elvis himself 

The museum was a $7 million project, and it definitely is worth the time to visit- the teddy bear themes were very detailed and interactive, and you will learn a lot throughout the tour. You’ll also get to meet Hawaii’s own President Obama… well the teddy bear version anyway 😉

For you lucky boys and gals who still are able to spend this precious day with your mother, don’t make excuses and do what you can to make it happen.  Mothers are only around for so long, and even though I myself haven’t had the luxury to take my mother out to lunch, or buy her a Mother’s Day gift for 13 years now, I was blessed to have encountered mother figures in my life to celebrate this day with.

Love,
Honey
