It’s been about a week now since we’ve been home from Palm Desert, California. We left Kansas City on Friday, April 7, and it was a cold, wet day. We were happy to say goodbye to the Midwest spring storms and hello to the warm desert sunshine! And though we didn’t get [...]

Pink Champagne. Oh, the reason I love it so is because it is always the drink a sophisticated woman orders in any movie from the 1950′s. She is on a cruise, alone, and finds her way to the bar where she orders “just a bit” of pink champagne. She dabs her finger in it [...]

It’s time for a haircut.
Have you had the same haircut for a long time? Admit it. You’ve had the same exact haircut for years right? I know I have. “Long with layers” has been my go-to hairstyle for the past five years or more. As we get older, I think we tend [...]

At Hapari, we have a lot of beautiful tankini styles to choose from. You can mix and match the bottoms, choose from different styles, select varying coverage options and support systems, and decide which fit best enhances what your mama gave you!

Do you know what today is?
It’s the first day of April, just another normal day… except that today is also known as APRIL FOOLS’ DAY! (horror-movie scream followed by dun dun dun.)
While you may want to be extra careful today and expect to be pranked, we’ve researched the history of this strange [...]
I went to my first stand-up comedy show last night. It was pretty much what I’d imagined it would be, even the view from the front row we were able to score. The last comedian of the night was absolutely killing it and covered the standard topics of dating, travel, etc. and of course brought [...]

So I have to admit, I’m a big fan of the month of March. So many great things happen in the third month of the calendar year — the first official day of spring, St. Patrick’s Day, Daylight Saving Time, MLB’s spring training, spring break and the start of swimwear [...]

The first time I heard the term Maillot was…. yesterday. Not going to lie, it was yesterday, and I was pronouncing it mail-lot like the American gal that I am. A quick Google search showed me the errors of my ways. ‘Maillot’ is a French word pronounced my-o, it rhymes with such [...]

I try my best to eat right, exercise and make smart choices … most of the time. “I try,” being the important part of that sentence, which means that sometimes when the warm delicious smell of a pizza in the oven wafts my way my mind forgets that whole healthy part and loses itself in [...]

Yesterday’s Academy Awards were filled with inspiration, beauty, and glamour.
From Ellen DeGenere’s hilarious one-liners to Lupita N’yongo’s breath-taking gown to Matthew McConaughey’s heart-felt acceptance speech, the Oscar’s this year seemed to be extraordinarily inspirational and more, well, real.
I’m not sure what’s changed, but it feels like ordinary, everyday people have more of a [...]
