Hairy Days Are Here Again: Spa Dogs

www.leichic.com There just aren’t enough hours in the day – especially when half of them are spent sitting in traffic. Crawling down a backed-up H-1 lane behind a tourist with nowhere to go while your errand time melts away no longer makes you mad – just dog tired.

So take back some lost hours by doing one important errand right at home.

Hair of the Dog Mobile’s fully-contained mobile dog grooming spa will clean up and pamper your pooch right at your doorstep. They’ve got the same amenities found in stationary grooming shops, but owner David Nunimaker (former... Read more »

Connect the Dots

www.leichic.comSwimming with sharks. Tow-in surfing. Hiking au naturel to a mauka waterfall. Yeah, you’ll try anything once, but for something to become habit you have to completely fall in love (like you did with eating lilikoi-lemon cupcakes ).

So meet kindred spirit Janie Coltrin, a former musician and songwriter who, when given a camera for the first time, thought only that she’d just go ahead and try it.

During her first official photo shoot (photographing a chair where Elizabeth Taylor once sat), she was hooked, and today she captures the... Read more »

Cheeseburger From Paradise

www.leichic.com

You like to live life on the edge. Not the Brittany Spears kind of teeter-totter (which is really over the edge), but you know—free, loose and with a healthy rush of excitement.

Now you can add eating at the long-awaited, now-open Burgers on the Edge to your list of daring adventures. A quick counter service joint conceptualized by the devilishly decadent palates behind Formaggio, BOTE serves up an outrageous... Read more »

True Colors

www.leichic.comIf somebody (like a book author sporting a Dorothy Hamill haircut) asks if you’re a winter, spring, summer or fall, remind them it’s 2008 (not 1987) and you’ll wear whatever color you like, ok?

But when Tricia Komae of Devine Paint Hawai‘i recommends refreshing the walls of your home with Desert Lights or Ocean Tide Pools color palettes – just two of a dozen or so nature-coordinated interior paint collections – then pay attention.

An environmentally friendly designer paint with a rich, yogurt-like texture, low VOCs, and “trend-proof” natural shades, Read more »

Good Bean Fun

www.leichic.comArriving home after a long workday, you like to plant yourself in a lounge position and stay there. Some may call you lazy (so what?), but you prefer another moniker: Relaxation Practitioner.

If you’re going to claim expert status, then you need the newest and best tools of the trade. So forget the Lazy-Boy and sink into a Fatboy, the millennial version of the bean bag chair, modernized by a hip Finnish designer. These mobile bags are made from water- and stain-resistant fabric filled with polystyrene beads that blissfully conform to the contours of every body, whether human or beast. All you have to do is clean them with lukewarm... Read more »

Re: Account Cancellation

Dear Evite,

 Sure, we had a good thing going, for a while. You were there for me during the Bad Sweater Party of 2006, when somehow I invited more than 500 people (thank goodness only 100 replied “I’ll drink to that”). Then there was the Heroes and Villains Halloween limousine coordination of 2007—I couldn’t have organized payments without you.
