Waking up craving the Loaded Avo Toast & Flat White at @a_r_v_o in Honolulu's Kakaako neighborhood. โ˜•๏ธ If you're looking for your Aussie fix while on the island of O'ahu, this is definitely one of the best places to get it. Bonus: Arvo is attached to Paiko which is a tres adorable shop selling air plants and succulents, that doubles as an event's space offering classes that will help you make the perfect flower crown ๐ŸŒบ P.S. I hear 'arvo' is Aussie slang for afternoon! #LetHawaiiHappen

Banzai Pipeline is a surf break off Ehukai Beach Park in Pupukea on O'ahu's North Shore. It is most commonly just known as 'Pipeline' or 'Pipe' and even though I can't surf myself, I could not leave the island of O'ahu without visiting it because it's one of those surf breaks that's always fascinated me from popular media, movies and surf photography. It's the site of Pipe Masters and several other yearly competitions and even on the day I visited, when Pipe wasn't at its peak size, it was easy to see why. There's more than one reef under the waves here and they are dangerous on multiple levels. You can actually see waves break into each other from multiple directions, you can feel the spray even standing far back on the sand and in just 5 minutes @verenamei and I saw the tide rise so visibly that it became a whole new beach before our eyes. Most of all though, I was drawn by the color of the waves as they caught the Golden Hour light just as they crested to become hints of their full potential which can be over 12 feet at peak time. I don't remember the last time I stood on a beach and felt both terrified of the ocean yet in complete awe of it at the same time, but that's exactly how I felt at Pipeline. #LetHawaiiHappen

I was just talking about food and travel with friends of mine last night (inc the dear @verenamei) and I realized that they've become almost interchangeable to me. I travel to eat, to find out about culture through food and I remember destinations often times, based on what meals were most memorable during my trip. โœจ Do you do this? The @halekulanihotel has a beautiful tradition of welcoming guests with a papaya upon check-in and every morning my room service breakfast came with the same fruit. It became a thread that wove through my work week, the constant presence of the fruit whether it was a 4, 6 or 8 AM call. Then walking through Verena's orchard up in the hills on the North Shore last night where fresh papaya was ripe for picking I smiled...knowing as long as I live I'm going to think of this week in O'ahu whenever I see a papaya. #HalekulaniMoment

just a simple moment of zen, looking out from a room at @halekulanihotel
hoggerandco : Ah so beautiful! Getting the urge to travel ๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒด
kirstenalana : Hawaii will do that to you when you see photos of it. The best part, is it's always even better than the photos. @hoggerandco ๐Ÿ˜œ
kimashton : I need to win the lotto so I can go back to Hawaii.
kirstenalana : Wish I could help you with that!! @kimashton

The @halekulanihotel is modern and luxurious, and as part of @leadinghotelsoftheworld, it offers everything you'd expect from a hotel of its caliber. However, as a history nerd I've been drawn over and over these past few days to the halls of the oldest part of the hotel, the old house where I can not just imagine the Lewers family sheltering guests but also the old Sea Captain who once had a home here, who became a character in the 'Charlie Chan' series written by novelist Earl Derr Biggers who stayed in a cottage on the Halekulani property in the 1920's... There are all kinds of stories here and stories are one of my favorite things to discover. #HalekulaniMoment

:: Collaboration :: The older I get and the longer it's been since I became an entrepreneur, the more valuable I see collaboration as being. Working with others motivates me, keeps me inspired and pushes me to stretch the boundaries of my own creativity to new and interesting places. This week, I'm working with one of the most inspiring teams ever. Pictured here with his RED, our DP @jeremysnell. Shown many times on my snapchat, the great crew of @beradstudio and its founder @bradwatanabe + my sweet stylist @debznish and of course the @travelandleisure staff + the employees of @halekulanihotel. I'm glad we're not done yet because I'm not ready to wrap! Speaking of collaboration, see @fleurishing's feed for an exciting announcement involving @lostncheeseland & myself!
gohawaii : Awesome to see that you're in Hawaii!
kirstenalana : Thanks!! Yeah I love it here. Never can stay away from the islands for long. @gohawaii
insatiabletraveler : Sounds amazing!
kirstenalana : Thanks Susan! @insatiabletraveler

It's my second day working from Hawaii at @halekulanihotel and I'm really enjoying the experience. Hotels with history + a cool story are my favorite to visit and Halekulani has that in spades in addition to its serene, welcoming design. The name means, "house befitting heaven" and it was given to the original home on the property by locals who were honoring the Lewers family. That family used to welcome and house fisherman who had no other options on this side of the island at a time when O'ahu was not as built up as it is now! The traditions of hospitality that began back in 1883 with Robert Lewers and his family are still alive today but the story now has many other facets as well and I'm excited to be doing a project that will bring those to light. I'm working with a really fantastic crew to do it & I can't wait till the full reveal later on through @travelandleisure! ๐ŸŒด #HalekulaniMoment

Spending the week in Honolulu filming a special project with @travelandleisure & @halekulanihotel. We started early this morning on the beach with a gorgeous sunrise and we broke for lunch at this spot. With the waves crashing and the surfers floating just off shore waiting for the right swell, and the sunshine beating down on my face -- in this moment I thought to myself how incredibly thankful I am that I get to do what I love so much...
kirstenalana : Wish I could transport you there. @willaprints
kirstenalana : @rockfowl Sounds amazing. Definitely a great place to visit and be inspired.
rockfowl : I look forward to it. And your gallery is also inspiring!๐Ÿ˜€
kirstenalana : Thank you so much! @rockfowl ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Today marks the start of more than a month of travel back-to-back so before I left NYC, @dante.vincent and I had a date at the @brooklynbotanic. Just in time to see all the cherry trees in full bloom, it was a lovely way to spend a Saturday. I posted a lot of photos and videos on snapchat which are still visible for a few more hours (๐Ÿ‘ป kirsten.alana) but it was this alley of trees itself that I wanted to linger in forever. And if it hadn't been so crowded with other visitors, maybe we would have. ๐ŸŒธ Mark your calendars if you're in NYC, I believe next weekend is the official cherry blossom festival. I took this photo with my Leica T and edited it using Priime. #priime_brushedgold

Can't let #EarthDay pass without sharing a photo of one of the most naturally-beautiful countries I've ever been to: Iceland. This is one of its black sand beaches, found near Vik. The sky the day @dante.vincent & I visited made me feel so blissful. ๐ŸŒŽ Barely any editing, and I took this with my iPhone. ๐ŸŒ Our planet is so beautiful it leaves me speechless. ๐ŸŒ #BeautifulDestinations
