Flight Out and Day 1 of Japan!!!

What’s up guys! This is officially the start of the Japan trip the girlfriend and I took in the beginning of October. In this video I showed our flight from Honolulu to Japan and what we ended up doing on our first official day there. I can’t tell you how much this video got me in my feels about Japan while I was creating it! Japan is just an amazing place! If you haven’t visited there yet, IT’S A MUST, or if you have already been there, then you already know why I’m in my feels lol.

Check out what we did and I can promise you that more videos from the trip are in the works and coming soon!  You can also peep the photos and read about the other things we did while in Japan.  There might not be too much photos this time, but that’s because I took a majority of video clips to sharpen my video skills even further.

I’ll also be moving travel content from the journal into it’s own section which will be labeled, “Travel”.  So look out for that!

Be sure to head over to my YouTube channel and LIKE and SUBSCRIBE my videos, please and thank you!  It would mean a lot and don’t be shy in the comment section.  I love reading and replying to everybody!

Made In Hawaii – I STARTED A NEW BRAND

This day at the printing shop was the official start of production of the very first t-shirt design.  I stopped by the shop so I could document this for y’all to see what goes on behind the scenes, just in case you’ve never seen anything like it before.  My printer that I’m currently going through is a homie from high school so I know the printing is in good hands!

I’ve set this brand to officially launch on April 13th this year.  So be sure to stay up to date and follow my store’s instagram (@madeinhawaiisc) for current updates and upcoming drops.

Check out the rest of the photos and even video of what went on that day and more.  Also be sure to check out my online store to see the shirt!  Many more designs, colors, etc. will be on its way so keep a look out for those!

This new design from AMMDI is called “Lei Aloha”.  I did a quick google search of, “Lei Aloha” because I was curious to what it meant and it came back as, “Leialoha” (no space), which interprets to a Hawaiian name for babies meaning “beloved child”.  This design dropped specifically for the women.  AMMDI released this design in store already but soon to drop at their online store.  The design only comes in one colorway, but there are 4 different styles you can choose from with a few color options for each style.  Crop tees come in beige and white, crop long sleeves come in white and red, racerback tanks come in black and charcoal, and lastly the muscle tee only comes in white.  Don’t sleep on these though, because I just got word that the crop long sleeves are SUPER LIMITED!  So if you’re interested in copping this for yourself, you can find it at Pipe Dreams Surf Co. at Pearl Ridge Uptown near Ross or just wait for these to drop online real soon.

I wanted to change up the scenery from what the team and I normally do.  What I had in mind originally was to do something street (which I love shooting) but I had a feeling the team wanted to shoot something different lol.  I had no story line for the shoot, no theme because I couldn’t think of anything.  My mind drew blank so it was just a “normal” shoot.  During the shoot though, little bits and pieces of ideas came to mind of how some parts of the video should go so it wasn’t totally “theme-less” lol.  It turned out to being a (if I HAD to name it) nature-ish vibe…..continue reading

Officially our last day at our last villa.  Bittersweet feeling of leaving and going home.  I kind of don’t want to leave but at the same time I want to go back home to Hawaii.  We did our last shoot here in Bali paradise.  I’m gonna miss everything from the pool, to the people, to the cheap food to the stores we don’t have, to the chill people that we met, etc.  Check out this last shoot that we did by clicking here or clicking on the photo above.  Also if you would like to know where Shaz got this dress she has on in the photo and would like one for yourself (assuming you’re a female lol) or your girlfriend, or whoever, you can get it here or shop other cute clothing by Lupsona!
