San Lorenzo Keiki opens at Sheraton Princess Kaiulani


San Lorenzo Mother & Keiki continues San Lorenzo Brazilian Bikinis’ focus on fashion-forward trends and cutting edge designs, as classic San Lorenzo Brazilian Bikinis styles are re-introduced in the new Keiki Kini line, which boasts the same attention to feminine detail that San Lorenzo Brazilian Bikinis is known for. “It has been a lifelong dream as a mother and as an entrepreneur to design and offer a complete line of Keiki bikinis. My mother, Teodora Moreano had the idea of incorporating a wider line of bikinis for women and mothers looking for more conventional swimwear,” says Lisseth Figueroa, the driving force behind this thriving regional chain of stores.

To celebrate the opening, San Lorenzo Mother & Keiki is pleased to invite you to the inaugural Grand Opening Event on October 13th, 2012 at 4:00 P.M.

During the event, an additional 20% off sale will be featured throughout the store. There will also be a Keiki Picture Taking Contest, held throughout the day for mothers to enter pictures of their children wearing their favorite bikini. Complimentary refreshments and snacks will be served between the hours of 4:00 P.M-6:00 P.M.

The two stores are at Sheraton Waikiki and Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa. Please come check them out!

Celebrity sightings continue!


Popular Japanese talent, actress, and singer Emiri Henmi was spotted in First Break at the Sheraton Waikiki! While I don’t have any in-store photographs to share, she did pick up something from the newly-release Indah Summer collection.

She even wrote about her shopping experience here at Collections of Waikiki!

abhasa spa’s new stylist!


A new stylist has just been hired at abhasa spa. If you didn’t know, hair treatments, cuts, and styling can also be booked there in addition to massages. The new stylist, a gentleman named KOICHI, is a professional with over 12 years of industry experience, most of which was as an upscale stylist based in New York City.

To celebrate, abhasa spa is offering 25% off all hair salon bookings, valid from now through 7/20/2012. This offer is not valid with any other offer, and must be presented at the time of the booking. Just let them know you heard about it here!

Icing on the cake


On a whim, I visited the Baskin-Robbins here at the Sheraton Waikiki. OK, so I’ve been on a hardcore diet and I wanted to cheat a little. I just (and by ‘just,’ I mean like 5 minutes ago) purchased an ice cream shake made with their Icing on the Cake flavor and…



My cup is already empty and I’m thinking about going back later today to get another one. I just had to share.

Spring is in the air!


We’ve had some pretty heavy storms here recently. Well, heavy for Hawaii, at least. But with the downpours come greener mountains and blooming flowers. Diamond Head is starting to look green again!

What all this means is that summer is just around the corner and the first thing that comes to mind is THE BEACH! Luckily, we have more than our fair share of swimwear shops here at Collections of Waikiki.

Our Local Motion store has the largest selection of RVCA (pronounced rooh-kah) attire in the state! It is unusual to go anywhere local and not see someone sporting a RVCA hat or shirt here…

First Break has a new line of swimwear, called Maaji. Imported from Columbia, all the tops and bottoms are reversible and are UNBELIEVABLY cute.

To come: Angelo, Hula-la, Flip Flop Shops, San Lorenzo Brazilian Bikinis, Volcom…and more!

Happy Valentine’s Day!


If any of you happy Hawaii-goers happen to be on property today, Honolulu Chocolate Company at the Sheraton Waikiki has large (and when I say large, I mean LARGE) freshly-dipped chocolate strawberries on sale, today only!

They’re super delish!
