Have a Look, Sea

Cottage by the Sea launches holiday pop-up co-op

Aloha Cottage Holiday Pop-up Co-op

We feel the same way about Cottage by the Sea's upcoming Aloha Cottage Holiday Pop-up Co-op. Starting this Saturday, the spacious back room of the... Read more »

And also crazy jealous we don't live there.

Thank goodness we don't have that problem at Royal Hawaiian Center. Okay, so we can't actually live in the three-block shopping, dining... Read more »

Pucker Up

Kissed by Maui's all-natural lipsticks handmade in Kihei

Kissed by Maui

We hate to kiss and tell, but we just can't keep our lips sealed about Kissed by Maui, a new all-natural lipstick line handmade in North Kihei.

Its founder, Robin Kory, has lipstick-making down to a science. The biology major became aware of the dangers of toxins in cosmetics and cleaning products thanks to her work as a health inspector, then as a paralegal at a large law firm in Ohio. So, she taught herself how to make her own lipsticks by heating... Read more »
