Pure Jean-ius

www.leichic.com
Nothing gives you the blues like splurging on a hot bag or pair of shoes that you end up wearing exactly once.  If you’re going to go all out, you want something you'll get your money’s worth for. Something you'll wear every day.  

Like a pair of jeans that fit you like a glove, and look great at work and out at night.

Just because you were born with your current hair color doesn’t mean your locks aren’t chemically enhanced.

For truly natural haircare, head to Megumi Organic Salon in Kaimuki. Only open a month, the salon offers completely chemical-free cuts, colors and styling – just no highlights, perms or straight perms.... Read more »

www.leichic.comAdmirer: Girl, that is one fine piece of glass you got. Wouldn’t I like to take that home where I could look at it every day.

You: Watch those hands! You can’t touch this.  

Forgive them. People can’t help but swoon over the art of Maui glass blower Rick Strini. He sculpts glass into flowing, swirling shapes like a funky jellyfish hanging light, vases shaped like flowers, and table lamps reminiscent of seashells or mushrooms.
