I’m currently on my way to Hawaii!

You can follow along with me on my Instagram @megbiram / Snapchat: megbiram / Twitter @megbiram / Facebook. For video in real time — definitely follow on snapchat. That’s where I share the most and am the most candid, but I will be posting about the trip here on the blog and compiling a video for my YouTube channel.


Sugar Lip Treatment with SPF 15 — I always make sure to bring this with me on beach vacations. Nothing worse than burning your lips! I also love this mineral sunscreen.

The Last Love Song: A Biography of Joan Didion — I just bought this book, can’t wait to read it!

Mara Hoffman Bikini — One of my favorite palm-print bikinis!

Panama Hat — I have this in the natural color and it’s saved my face from many wrinkles.

S’well Water Bottle — My friend told me these water bottles are AMAZING for keeping things cold.

Beach Towel — LOVE the design on this towel.

FujiFilm Mini Camera — Really need to get myself one of these cameras.

Ancient Greek Toe Ring Sandals — I always go back to a toe ring sandal. So chic and comfortable.

Vix Maxi Dress — I’m super picky about my cover ups. I want them to be appropriate for the elevator in the hotel, and also to spend an afternoon at a beach bar.

Tory Burch FitBit — I’ve heard that everyone in Hawaii goes to bed early because they get up early to hike and surf. Wonder how much more the average Hawaiian moves around every day than the DCer?

Rifle Paper Co Folk iPhone Case — I think it’s appropriate to have special phone cases for each season, plus vacations!

Illesteva Sunglasses — Because these are just sick.

Beach Tote — Yes, take me to the ocean. Everyday.

A few more beachy favorites:


I’ve never been to Hawaii, so I am beyond excited! From DC it is definitely a trek. 12 hours of flying time split up between two flights. I always plan to work and read on long flights, and then that rarely happens — I usually sleep, watch movies, and drink water. However, on this flight I’ll be leaving in the morning and getting there at 3 pm Hawaii time, so I might be wide awake and not feel like sleeping.

I’m meeting up with Aida & Eden (I met them in August in Zurich!) and also Claire, Erin, and Kylie.

Would love your food, spa, and shopping recommendations!
