aloha island lei – beautiful leis from hawaii!
September 19th, 2013etc, Mary, productsMary Desjean 5 Comments

Earlier in the summer, I received these beautiful Hawaiian Leis from Aloha Island Lei. They must have figured out my favorite colors or something because I’m sure this is something I would have picked out on my own!

The one and only time I’ve ever been in Hawaii was on my way to the Philippines when I was 11 years old. We were supposed to have just a hour over layover in Honolulu, which dragged out to be much longer (I think maybe 2 or 3 hours). I never got to set foot outside of the airport and I’ve always wondered if they give out lei’s when you enter into Hawaii like I always see on TV. I guess someday I should go and find out! In the meantime though, these beautiful leis managed to give me a tiny taste of Hawaii and just made me want to go visit a little bit more.

A long box arrived with cold packs and inside, there were two leis. My favorite of the two was the stunning Jade Olomana, a jade orchid lei with a purple and white orchid center.

You can see the stunning color of the flowers.

The lei is packed tightly together and I love the bright pop of the purple against the lush green.

The lei is a good length, too. It’s so pretty you can’t help but feel a little bit like a princess wearing one.

The second lei is the Tuberose. This was a much simpler lei with pretty white flowers that gave off the most heavenly scent.

I loved the simplicity of this white flowered lei not to mention it’s wonderful fragrance. 

I ended up giving these lei’s as a gift to Jake’s mom for watching Maya a few times this past summer. She ended up loving them and it was a perfect gift!

If you’re looking for a gift or something unique for a special occasion, consider one of the gorgeous lei’s from Aloha Island Lei.

    I love leis made from tuberose. There’s one made from double tuberose and ilimas that is just stunning. But that green and purple one is also gorgeous!

My name is Mary and I live in San Diego. I've been blogging since 2006 as a hobby - it's my fun, creative outlet! Some random things about me: I'm a front end web developer, I love peanut butter, cookies, warm cupcakes, puppy noses, star gazing, new bags of sugar, sprinkles, cupcake wrappers, egg rolls, eating french fries with ice cream, driving with the windows down, snuggling, wes anderson movies, staying up too late reading a good book and Jake. These are my adventures in all things food. Hope you enjoy the ride.
