>> It's summertime - time for that trip to Hawaii, right? Yeah...not so much for me either, unfortunately. Don't get all down quite yet - I found something that will make us both feel better. Hawaiistores.com is having a sale on their kukui nut leis. You better brace yourself for this one: the 30" leis are going for $3.99. I was seriously under the impression that nothing except a stick was going for $3.99 anymore. Now I know the leis you're used to seeing are those monstrously tacky fake flower leis from the party store down the street, but these are the real deal, straight from the gorgeous archipelago itself. Even that trend whore Jessica Simpson knows a good thing when she sees one. Too bad she probably got hers from shopintuition.com for $30. AloHA! Bested again, Miss Simpson! In any case, go, treat yourself. They come in black and brown (aka they look good with pretty much everything).
Note: hawaiistores.com has a $7.00 order minimum, so team up with a friend, and splurge for two leis.
