Rocksbox is a membership-based jewelry service that allows you to borrow jewelry before you buy them.  For only $19/month, members receive a box of three designer jewelry pieces based on their style profile.  You can keep your box of jewelry and wear them for as long as you like.  When you are ready to return them, a new set of three will be sent to you.  You pay the same membership fee regardless of how often you exchange your box.  If you love a piece and want to purchase it, keep it when you return your box and you will be billed at the member’s price shown on your packaging list.
It's a great concept!  You'll love it!

Golden Pork Ton-Kotsu Ramen Bar Opening in Honolulu, March 29

Last week, my good friend Gem, of Hawaii Mom Blog, and I attended a media preview and private menu tasting of IKKA Dining International's Golden Pork Ton-Kotsu Ramen Bar.  Golden Pork Ton-Kotsu Ramen Bar offers three types of pork-based tonkotsu ramen and tsukemen (dipping noodles) and a number of side dishes. To complement the dishes, they serve a fine selection on beer, wine, shochu, and sake. 

The restaurant provides the perfect ambience with a traditional yet modern interior.  A kinbyoubu (adorned folding screen) has been transformed into a lantern-styled lighting fixture that hangs over the central ramen counter and bar. 

The beautiful mosaic blue tiles form the majestic Mount Fuji.

Freshly Ground Cheese Caesar Salad
Love the taste of the dressing and their cheese is grated with a special grater. 

Cream Cheese Miso Paste
I thought, cheese and crackers?  But it sure was delicious!
The cream cheese has a very light miso taste and went well with the crackers.

House-Made Gyoza
The gyoza is made fresh daily.  You'll love it!

Golden Pork Buns
The pork is very tender and is slow-cooked for 5 hours.

Gem tried the Black Garlic Original ramen and I tried the Golden Pork Classic ramen. The broth is very tasty and thicker than the usual ramen broth.  We had so much to eat and enjoyed all of it!

Koko Head Hike

Last weekend we had a great workout doing the Koko Head Hike with some friends.  It's pretty tough but there's a wonderful sense of accomplishment when you reach the top.  The view is also amazing and it gives you something to look forward to when you're thinking to yourself...what did I get myself into? It's really worth it!

Have a great week!

I really love the three items I received in my Rocksbox!  I ended up purchasing the Perry Street Layla Necklace because of its versatility.  It goes with just about anything.  I wore it with a basic white tee, a gray sweater (shown below), and a dress.  It definitely added to the outfits!  You'll probably be seeing a lot more of this necklace in my future posts!

Shoreline Hotel Waikiki

If you love shopping, dining, and going to the beach, the Shoreline Hotel Waikiki is the place to stay.  The recently renovated modern boutique hotel is located just two blocks away from the amazing Waikiki shopping scene, restaurants, and beach.  We had dinner at the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, did some shopping, dropped off our bags in our room, and then went back out.  It was so convenient. 

The lobby is very welcoming.  We relaxed on the comfortable couches for a little while and enjoyed the complimentary pineapple iced tea.  The also provide complimentary coffee and refreshing cucumber lemon mint water.

The room we stayed in was the “City View Room Two Doubles.”  It was a cozy room that would be comfortable for two adults, or two adults and two young children.  The bed was so comfortable!  The pillows were just the right fluff and the comforter was SO soft. 

The hotel also has a pool on the rooftop deck.  The weather was perfect, sunny with a nice cool breeze.  We loved the beautiful view of Waikiki and the city.
