Silk and Silver

Laurie Sendra’s fashion-forward bridal ensemble for her intimate wedding at the Royal Hawaiian was so unique and stylish, it just needed to be shared!


Laurie donned a simple and elegant, spaghetti strapped dress of silk charmeuse by Australian designer, Johanna Johnson. A gorgeous, blue diamante accent, sewn into the tag of Laurie’s gown, served as Laurie’s “something blue.”

The sheath style gown featured a low back, sweep train, and an alluring front slit. The real show-stopping facets of her ensemble, however, were her silver, jeweled body chain, delicately draped over her gown, and coordinating head piece.

Strappy, silver, Jimmy Choos with sleek curvy lines that tied in beautifully with the chains completed Laurie’s wedding look.

Congratulations Laurie and Paul!

Na Ho’ola Spa Anniversary


Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa, located at 2424 Kalakaua Avenue, invites the public to celebrate the 14 year anniversary of Na Ho’ola Spa, one of Waikiki’s most prestigious resort spas.  In observance of this remarkable milestone, the spa is launching a new website, introducing a new house-made honey hand lotion, Milky Meli, and offering guests the opportunity to purchase an array of mystery spa products in a fukubukuro for $14 (quantities are limited).  Parking is complimentary for spa guests.  To make a reservation, please book online, call (808) 237-6330, or email
“We are honored to have been the first resort spa in Waikiki and although the number of spas has definitely grown over the years, the dedication and professionalism of our staff has consistently remained our hallmark.  We really have become a spa of choice for many returning visitors who will often request the same therapist or bring family and friends on successive visits.  Today, we continue to promote the Hawaiian culture while also incorporating sustainability efforts and luxury products into our process.  The new Milky Meli hand lotion is something we are really proud of as it is made using honey harvested on property.  Honey has been used for centuries as a natural remedy and for keeping skin moisturized and youthful which is the perfect complement to many of our other products” says Anderson.

Na Ho’ola Spa is located on the fifth floor of the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa.  The facility is over 10,000 square feet with 16 treatment rooms. The spa is renowned for its views overlooking the Pacific from the serene relaxation room as well.
