We have been enjoying the rainy and chilly weather this last month. I know it’s nothing compared to where many of you are, but it’s the one short time of the year where we can actually wear sweaters. Last night we enjoyed dinner with some friends in Kaneohe at Haleiwa Joe’s. The tiki torches blazing with the soft rain in the background was a beautiful setting to enjoy the delicious fresh ahi. No set plans for this weekend but I would like to take a long walk and catch up on some reading. What are you doing this weekend? xoxo kai

~If you take Agomelatine for depression and have PD, you may want to read this article.

~ Would you like to define your style & streamline your closet? Style Bee has an interesting downloadable toolkit that I’m trying. I just started and am about a week into the 30 day shopping fast and it’s interesting how often we are tempted to purchase something.

~ I can’t help it but for some reason I am drawn to recipes for anything chocolate pudding/mousse/molten cakeish. I just save and save these recipes but never make them. Well I’ve decided to make Chocolate Puddle Cakes from Smitten Kitchen and can’t wait!

~ Is it me or is Everlane taking over the fashion blog world? No wonder, with these cute cropped wide leg pants, who can resist?

~ Here are a few of my favorite parkie instagrammers right now. Rock Steady Fighter is super motivational and when I get lazy, she makes me want to get up and get going. Also Yiisha Arroyo, talk about stylish. Wow.

~ Books I’m enjoying right now. At Home: A Short History of Private Life by Bill Bryson, The Noma Guide to Fermentation by Rene Redzepi, and Only In Naples by Katherine Wilson.
