Brand Alert: United Nude

Sandra Shoes

United Nude is by no means new but it was recently brought to my attention by my fashion loving doppelganger (really, I’m her doppelganger), Sandra Espinet.  I’ve mentioned her before because of her fantastic taste in shoes (and let’s be honest here… her taste in everything style!) but I’m so excited about United Nude.  These shoes are art people.  I mean, look at these babies!  And get this… Sandra says she wore these all over a furniture show in North Carolina, did a speech, then continued on to an Architectural Digest party and was COMFORTABLE!  Just add in how amazingly unique this line of shoes is and I’m now officially swooning.  Anything from this brand is on my Christmas wish list for sure.  *hint hint*

Rental Review: North Shore Beach House

Hawaiian Rental House

I won’t lie… we totally lucked out on our rentals while in Hawaii.  I mean, this place is directly on the water, there’s great snorkeling right out front, and sea turtles swimming by every few minutes.  I’d give it 5 stars if it was just a place to pitch a tent with those credentials but it was so much more.  The 4 bedroom 4 bathroom house was set to impress.  There was everything you could possibly need to cook and BBQ, lots of snorkeling gear, and water shoes/fins.  We ended up spending many nights just creating our own personal luau and playing “The Turtle Game.”  The rules are basically just shout “Turtle!” when a sea turtle pops it’s head out of the water and scramble to get a glimpse.  Yeah… it’s a totally stressful environment… Not!  I think the only negatives are, for the price, we might have expected more amenities in the bathrooms (i.e.- soap, shampoo, hair dryers) but nothing you’ll die without!  The salt water will give you the best bath anyway!
