Sponsored Edition: Impulse Flying

Image It started innocently enough. A set of chunky, neon bangles caught your eye. Next, it was an awesome set of metallic leggings. But things got tubular the day your sleek ponytail slipped off-center, almost, like, taking that new scrunchie with it (hey, the Olympic team wears it! )

Oh. My. God.

That's totally the wrong way to go Valley.

Escape your style slide with a trip to the real Valley Isle in HONOLULU Magazine's Staycation Giveaway.

Image All you need to do is fill out a short form on HONOLULU Magazine's website and soon you could be jet setting your way to Maui. You and a friend (sorry, Nicholas Cage is taken) will start your vacation on go! airlines. Once you stow your bag in the overhead compartment, your short trip will net you 500 go! miles – an automatic plus anytime you fly one of go!'s 40 daily flights.

Once there, you'll pick up a rental car, courtesy of Budget, and in minutes, you'll be cruising down the highway, wind slightly ruffling your over-teased hair, on your way to Aston Kaanapali Shores. For three days and two nights, you can take advantage of Kaanapali beach, the pool, outdoor barbecue area, and high-speed Internet. Spend the day cruising (malls not required) in your sweet ride, scoring great deals at restaurants and shops with Aston Hotel & Resorts complimentary Aloha Book and Budget's gift coupons.

Then as the sun goes down, stroll back to your upgraded room, free with Aston's Kamaaina K-Class Pass that comes with any two-night stay in 2012. And you won't blow your budget on meals. Each studio or suite at the Aston Kaanapali Shores Resort comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, perfect for stashing your bottles from Maui wineries. Or use your K-Class pass for two complimentary cocktails and $50 credit at the resort's Beach Club Restaurant.

So you won't have a reason to gag yourself with a spoon.

That's 'fer sure.
