6 Stylish Ways to Get Your Weekend Going

Lei Chic’s guide to the weekend’s best events.



Get the Beauty

What: New year, new you, new look. You can’t buy a new face (and why would you want to, you pretty thing?!) but no one’s would blame you for getting a fresh start with your beauty routine. At Nordstrom’s Winter Beauty Event, industry experts will show you the latest and greatest- from eye serums to facial oils- and help you pick out a customized routine that’s just right for you. Check out the sweet-smelling fragrance bar where you can find an array of scented lotions and creams. Plus, when you spend $125 or more in beauty products, you will get an exclusive cosmetic bag while supplies last. Stop by or book an appointment with an expert today—then get used to the new you.
When: Friday, Jan. 22 and Saturday, Jan. 23
Where: Nordstrom, Ala Moana Center
Details: Call 953-6100 for more information.



All Blogged Down

What: OK, so call us biased, but we love a good blog. Some of our biggest “eureka!” style moments have come from seeing some stylish diva strutting their stuff on the digital stage. It’s endless inspo at your fingertips, and we say you can never have too much inspo. That's why we jumped on this little list of must-follow bloggers from The Fashion Spot, a collection of outfit ideas just waiting to happen from some chic ladies that are taking the Internet by storm. In fact, our minds are already racing: how to work that statement floral skirt and edgy patterned suit into our wardrobe? Research first; then the development.
Where: thefashionspot.com
Details: We definitely need to get ourselves a metallic pencil skirt.




Macaron It Happen

What: We know what you're thinking: "Prep for Valentine's Day? That's weeks away!" But we've got three great reasons why you should get on reserving your spot for this handmade candy workshop at Cookspace ASAP. 1) Love means putting some damn effort into things. That means thinking ahead, dudes. 2) Everyone likes getting candy as a gift. Everyone loves getting candy you made yourself as a gift! 3) Next week's macaron workshop sold out over a week before the event and we may or may not have shed a few tears thinking of all the homemade macarons we missed out on. Don't make the same mistake this Valentine's Day! You don't want to be stuck on Feb. 14 with no handmade candy or macarons. We're telling you because we love you.
When: Sunday, Jan. 31, 11 a.m.–1 p.m.
Where: Cookspace, Ward Village Shops, Suite 2360
Details: $65. Call 695-2205 for more information or visit cookspacehawaii.com.




This Goes to Eleven

What: Hey, don’t start giving up on your resolutions! We know you’ve fallen off the wagon, but it’s still just the first month of 2016. There’s still time to read a book every month, we promise. To make it easier on yourself, get started with our pick, Station Eleven, a chilling and touching look at the before, during and after of a world that gets ravaged by a massive pandemic. So massive, in fact, that humanity is 99-percent destroyed. The book won author Emily St. John Mandel the Arthur C. Clarke Award last year, and you’ll love the surreal imagery, tender relationships and multifaceted characters. Plus, if you get on it now, you have four months to finish it before the next Arthur C. Clarke Award winner is released. Get readin’.
Where: Barnes and Noble, Ala Moana Center
Details: $15.95. Call 949-7307 for more information.





A Kini Eye

What: West side reppers, rejoice! This weekend you won’t have to take the weekly trek into town for your fashion fix, because Kini Zamora is popping up with some pals in Kapolei. There will be live music, some snacks and lots of shopping. Obviously, KZ Hawai‘i will be there with lots from the stylish local celeb. He’ll be joined by beauty vendors Younique and DoTerra, jewelry from Chloe and Isabel and Uncle Alika’s Opihi Shell Necklaces and more. The best part? Since you’re saving on gas, you’ll have more to blow on baubles.
When: Saturday, Jan. 23, 10 a.m.–2 p.m.
Where: 91-224 Puanohu Place
Details: Call 520-1415 for more information.



Invader Zen

What: Call you scatterbrained, but you’re constantly losing your inner peace. Between work insanity, home frustrations and the fact that your mechanic is sent from hell to torment you, it’s hard to hang on to all that zen stuff. You could use some help, and we have the perfect solution: Yoga Hawai‘i is welcoming master yogini Myra Lewin for a workshop on developing one’s personal and spiritual practice, Yoga Beyond Asana (the physical postures). In it, learn about the philosophy of yoga, how to develop a meditation practice and the power of mantra to shift energy and awareness. Oh, there you are, inner peace. We’ve been looking for you.
When: Saturday, Jan. 23, 4–6 p.m.
Where: Yoga Hawai‘i, 1152 Koko Head Ave.
Details: Call 739-9642 for more information.
