About Me

img_5441-1.jpgMy name is Gina, not Blondie. FYI. But I DO have blonde hair in a sea of brown & black living in Hawaiʻi.

I’m not an exceptional writer, I don’t have my mother’s cooking skills and I am an adequate dresser. I am currently working at a non-profit, living on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi. If you took vacation to Hawaiʻi with your family, it probably wasn’t to my island.

I moved from California in 2008 to Hilo, HI to play soccer and possibly get an education in between practice and drinking blueberry vodka from the bottle. From failing my first semester, losing most of my scholarship money & getting a DUI, I somehow ended up alright.

I’m going to be real, I won’t try to hide what I’ve done, who I am or the things I’ve learned in my 25 years of life. My goal is to help others on their journeys and have you join me on my daily happenings.

I hope you laugh, learn, share and interact with what I have to give. So take a peek inside; Hawaiʻi living, DIYs, attempts at making tasty food and more!
