“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”

Adding to the “Travel Fit” section of our family travel blog ~ hike the Sleeping Gaint! Get out and get moving with the whole family.

Looking for a great family hike to do on Kauai? The Nounou Trail, AKA Sleeping Giant, is a fun, family friendly, scenic hiking trail with  two access points (east & west) leading to the top of the mountain. Hike two miles up and two miles back through the Nounou Mountain Range between the towns of Wailua and Kapaa on the island of Kauai. Hike among the Norfolk and Cook Pines that were planted in the 1930′s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Stop to observe and take pictures of the breathtaking overlooks of Kauai’s lush interior and coastal views. Why is it called Sleeping Giant? According to Hawaiian legend,the giant was tricked by villagers into eating a rocks hidden in fish and poi. After consuming the large meal, the giant took a nap and has never woken.

This blog post and pictures are all from the West Trail of the Sleeping Giant.

How to get there~If you are not familiar with the area, it is important to take note as to which entrance of the trail you park at the East Trail or West Trail. The East Trail is accessible from Hwy. 56, turn west onto Kuamoo and drive 2.4 miles, the trail head marking will be on the right. For the West Trail, follow the same directions but continue on past the East trail head, turn right on Kamalu Road, drive 1.3 miles and the trail head will be on the right in a rural neighborhood in the Wailua Homesteads. All state trails on Kauai will have a metal sign (pictured above) at the trail head that states the name of the trail.

“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity…”  ~ John Muir

IMG_4182What to expect on the way up~ we started about 8:30 a.m. which is nice and cool in September. Ideally, we could have started sooner as it heated up drastically by 10 a.m. My first tip~ hike at your own pace. It’s not a race, take in the beauty of it all and enjoy yourself. As you make your way up the mountain, it is pretty well shaded. In the picture above, it felt as though we were walking through a foggy mist of trees. It was quiet, peaceful and smelled of fermented cherries. Warning~ there are a lot of fruit flies! Be sure to plant your feet with each step as the smashed fruit on the ground can be slippery. Our son enjoyed picking up walking sticks along the way. Sleeping Giant is a pet friendly trail. There are a lot of dogs. Be sure to have your pet on a leash and bring bags to pick up poop. Some people run the trail, so expect to step aside and allow others to pass. This happened to us frequently along the trail. One trail runner actually passed us three times. The trail is very safe, people are friendly and most of them will say “Aloha” as they pass. Please respect the trail and trees, pick up your trash and be mindful of others.

Roots, roots & more roots

Roots, roots & more roots

We took our time on the trail as it was our first attempt and we weren’t in a rush. We completed the entire trail, up and back, in two hours with many stops to take pictures and drink water. If you are an avid hiker, I would imagine you could make it up in 30 minutes time. As you approach the large rock formation towards the top, there is a stretch of the trail with drop offs on either side. Be sure to take your time, not pass others or take pictures in this area. It is a little deceiving as there are bushes on either side of the trail, but when you look closely, it becomes apparent that it is a cliff. I would not recommend that young children hike to the top. There are a couple of spots where we had to climb on large rocks and/or roots. I used my hands while climbing down in a few tricky spots. Wear good shoes, preferably hiking shoes. If you don’t own hiking shoes, wear tennis shoes. Do not wear slippers (flip flops), sandals, brand new shoes or anything with a slight heel. The trail would be an easy place to turn an ankle if not wearing the proper footwear.

IMG_4110This was the first large rock that we came upon and of course, we had to take a picture. What kid doesn’t love to climb on a great big rock? In this area of the trail, it feels as though you are hiking in the Northwest of the United States rather than on a tropical island.

Picnic Area

The east and west trail of Sleeping Giant both end up at a picnic table area toward the top. There is a large open grass area. It is an ideal place to take pictures, rest and to stop and eat lunch.

There are two covered,  picnic tables. Celebrate your climb by enjoying lunch with a fabulous view. The breezes up high on the mountain felt so refreshing after sweating during the climb. There is also a lookout area with a bench, which is a wonderful spot to take a picture. You can set your camera on the timer, put it on the bench and snap away!! The photo above is from the lookout area. We had our own photographer present that day.

Tips: Let me preface by saying that I tend to be over-prepared in most situations. There aren’t any restrooms or water stations anywhere on the trail. If you plan to hike alone, tell someone when and where you will be. Be sure to bring water, sunblock, snacks, wash cloth or small towel, hat and cell phone. We hiked in September when it can be very hot and humid, so be sure to bring at least 3 water bottles per person in a small backpack. Some hikers will advise holding the water bottle in your hand as a reminder to drink often. However, I think you should have your hands free on this trail. Due to hiking in the morning, we didn’t pack a lunch; however, always bring snacks! You never know if/when you or someone you are with may need food. It’s great to snack on healthy food items such as dried fruits, trail mix, granola bars etc. for energy as you hike. We bring a small towel or wash cloth which can be multifunctional. Use the wash cloth to wipe off sweat or to clean off scratches or scrapes which may occur during the hike. It is always best to have a small towel in the event someone were to get injured. It’s wonderful to be one with nature and practice technology-free family time!!!! So turn your cell off if you wish, but don’t hike without it. Keep at least one charged phone with you in the event of an emergency. Lastly, we froze our water bottles which turned out to be a huge relief as I was getting really hot and feeling nauseous at one point and the ice, cool water over my head really made me feel better. Bring your inhaler, Motrin or whatever you usually carry with you for emergencies. Hike safe, be smart and have fun.

Tikishiki Handbags ~ the perfect travel bag

Vintage Hawaiian Hibiscus

Your trip is booked, passports are laid out, it’s time to pack and you are undecided on which handbag to bring.

60’s Hawaiian Vintage

Do I want to pack multiple purses and bags or is there one, versatile bag which would be perfect for the entire trip? It would be great to have a large bag to put under the seat in front of me on the plane, a small bag for rushing through port towns when departing the ship for a day, a bag with a long strap to wear across my chest in crowded, metro locations. If I brought all of these bags, it would require an entire suitcase dedicated to handbags! The most practical handbag for travel is going to be something light, which allows for long days of walking without pulling on your shoulder. The next feature you want to look for is a handbag with a short strap, securing the bag close to your body with your arm and not lingering down low where pick pockets have easy access. Finally, a handbag with a sturdy, thick strap which cannot be easily cut when passing in a crowd. Yes, this does happen in crowded, tourist destinations. There are a lot of factors to consider before taking off on the trip of your dreams or a simple work training. Where does this leave us?

Let me introduce you to the world of Jennifer Todice’s Tikishiki Handbags~

Japanese Wrapping Cloths

“Tikishiki handbags are a blend of traditional Japanese design, Hawaii vintage and beautiful inspiring fabrics, with a modern functional edge. Upon returning from holiday in Japan I was motivated by the design of a long established furoshiki bag. This is a Japanese wrapping cloth dating back to the 17th century. Throughout history the furoshiki has been used to protect gifts, carry meals, and act as a handbag. Tikishiki is a blend of Hawaii (my connection to the islands) and the Japanese furoshiki bag. By adding a stylish and functional liner to the fabrics, and a strong leather handle; created is a handbag that not only REPRESENTS the CULTURE and HISTORY of the FAR EAST but a MODERN and FUNCTIONAL HANDBAG with a HAWAII TWIST” ~ Jennifer Todice

There is a Tikishiki handbag for every occasion, season and holiday. Use this handbag to accessorize your outfit for a fun lunch with girlfriends or a night out on the town. The bright colors are striking and the prints are bold. The handbags would be perfect with solid color clothing or subtle patterns. Mix it up!! Throw a bag over your shoulder and grab bright-colored flats to tie in the bag. All of the elegant bags will complement a simple pair of jeans.

Tikishiki Handbags: Travel Benefits

1. Lighter than your normal handbag so you can full it up and not feel weighted down. (Due to its mostly cloth body.)

2. With two detachable functioning parts, it packs FLAT.

3. Reversible, have a bright and bold pattern or more modest solid as your front facing handbag.

4. Sizable, you can adjust the size of your handbag to a smaller evening size or a larger day time carry all.

5. Easy to clean! Just through your fabric portion into the wash or spot clean.

Perfect for packing!!! If you want to bring your Tikishiki handbag in your suitcase, it hardly takes any room with the option of the removal strap.

Perfect for packing

Don’t bother with packing bulky and heavy handbags because you will end up taking up too much space and possibly going over the allotted weight limit for luggage.

Leather Handles

Loving the Tori Richards 1978 vintage fabric, parasol print. Perfect to wear with jeans. The great thing about Hawaii, is you can wear these colors year round. The rich, leather strap is very complementary, giving the handbag an expensive, classy look.

“We have been hard at work on beautiful leather handles. Some of the last few that will come from our studio on the back lanai of our home. We are moving forward into manufacturing them for the new year. Having readily available handles gives me more time to focus on the beautiful fabrics for our bags.” ~ Jennifer Todice

“There’s nothing interesting about looking perfect—you lose the point. You want what you’re wearing to say something about you, about who you are.” ― Emma Watson

It’s a Scarf thang……….

There are so many things to love about a scarf. They are unisex, for all ages, great for any season, to dress up a beautiful gown or great to throw on with jeans, cover your shoulders in a movie theater or on an airplane and each one is so unique! I love scarves so much that I threw a scarf party where everyone brought a gift bag with a scarf inside, we drew numbers and exchanged. It was a blast!!

Throughout this post, you will learn various ways to tie or wrap a scarf.

One thing I always bring when traveling…….a scarf because they don’t take up any room in a suitcase!

Just roll them up or fold them flat and they can turn one outfit into many. I wear the same basic black pants and black top but make it look different with colored scarves around my neck, waist or shoulders.

On a breezy St. Tropez day I tied a scarf around my waist to keep the dress from blowing around. A scarf, may just be, the most affordable way to change up an outfit! Here’s what I love, you can have on a simple sundress or a pair of jeans- throw on a scarf and instantly feel dressed up! In Europe we would walk and walk for hours and I didn’t want to lug around a heavy sweater so instead, I tucked a scarf into my handbag and pulled it out when the breeze kicked up.

Where did scarves come from?

Ancient Rome (of course my favorite country) is one of the first origins of the scarf, where it was not

used to keep warm or for fashion, but to keep clean.

During that time it was called sudarium, which means “sweat cloth” in Latin, as they used the scarves to wipe the sweat from your neck and face in the heat. Eww!!! Originally, they were worn by men around their neck or tied to their belt. Then, women started using the scarves, made of cloth, pashmina (fine cashmere wool from India), or silk, and ever since the scarf became fashionable among women!!!!

The scarf became a real fashion accessory by the early 19th century for both men and women. By the middle of the 20th century scarves became one of the most essential and versatile clothing accessories for both men and women.

In recent years, scarves have experienced a revival.

Do you wear a scarf the same old, boring way every time?

There are all kinds of chic ways to tie a scarf….personally I like to watch how other people wear them and then mimic. No more mimicking!!! It is time to learn the Art of Scarf.

The Circle/Loop/Infinity Scarf is great because you never have to worry about tying them nor arranging the way it looks. It’s a circle and you can loop it once, twice or three times to adjust the length. Be sure to start off by putting the seam in the back of your neck. I have even tied a circle scarf around my waist which is called a scarf belt tie (shown in the Leaning Tower picture above).

Muffler tie scarf

Shawls & Wraps are loosely worn over the shoulders, upper body and arms, and

sometimes also over the head. I wore a shawl to a formal holiday party to cover my shoulders and to dress up the dress. The shawl was sheer black with beaded trim and everyone loved it!

The Head Scarf is great because many of them are made more as headbands with the elastic underneath. However, if you have a small scarf which you would like to tie on your head there are several ways to do so or simply tie

Loop & Tuck Knot

around your ponytail. A scarf is not just simply fashion, they can be practical as well.

Wrap & Tie Knot

Wrap & Tie Knot

Winter Scarves tend to be thicker and therefore can be more difficult to tie without looking bulky. To obtain the look of a loose wrap, put the scarf around your neck with the ends hanging in back and then bring the ends back around evenly to hang down in front.

The Loop & Tuck Knot is a great way to wear a thick, winter scarf. Start off by putting the middle of the scarf in the front of your neck and let the ends of the scarf rest against your back, bring the ends around to the front, tuck them into the loop around your neck and pull down.

The Wrap & Tie is a great way to wear winter scarves because it looks great and it is very warm. Place the scarf at the front of your neck with the ends over your shoulders, cross the ends, and bring them to the front and then tie the sides in a knot at the front of your neck.

The Silk Scarf is a classic, timeless, soft, fluttery, and perfect for all kinds of scarf-tying styles. My favorite scarf is a silk scarf because they don’t get hot, they are light, small and wispy. They look pretty when the wind blows and they are easy enough to shove in a handbag. Here’s the perfect situation for the silk scarf….a day of walking the streets, shopping and then it’s time for mimosas at brunch, a high end lunch or appetizers and wine………so you grab the silk scarf, tie and off you go! I most commonly wear a silk scarf using the Slip Knot. Start by folding the scarf in half, wrap scarf around the back of neck, pull both ends of the scarf through the loop, adjust the scarf to the most comfortably position, and then you can leave the knot close to your neck or pull it further away for a looser fit.

Rectangle Scarves are the most versatile, as you can tie or style them in many ways. They are easy to adjust the length by wrapping several times and you can be creative with the type of bow or tie. To obtain the Cape Wrap look: Fold a square or rectangle scarf so the ends meet and form a triangle, place a scarf over your shoulders so that the longest straight end is at the top of your back and two triangles corners meet in front, and then make a square knot with the two ends in front. Then there is a the Pan Am Scarf Knot. To obtain this look: fold a square silk scarf diagonally and bring the ends around to the front of your neck, tie a simple knot with the two scarf corners. Adjust the knot to your liking.

You can also get the Sarong look with a scarf if it is long enough. I love to wrap scarves around my waist when they have fringe- as in the St. Tropez picture. Sarong tie: open the scarf wide and wrap around your hips and pull the ends to one side or in the front and tie to secure.

Chain Knot

The Chain Knot looks great when your hair is up. The ends of the scarf drape down your back for a very elegant

look. The Chain Knot looks best with a silk, rayon or fancy scarf. To get the chain knot look, drape the scarf around the back of your neck, then bring the sides evenly to the front and wrap them around each other twice in a twisting motion, and pull the ends to the back of your neck and them in a knot.

Four-in-Hand tie is a more sophisticated look and easy to accomplish. It may be too bulky of a tie for a thick scarf but works well with then scarves. First, fold the scarf in half and place the scarf around the back of neck with a loop on one side, pull one end through the loop and twist loop and then pull the other end of the scarf through the loop.

The next tie is called the Cowboy Bolo Tie which can be dressed down with a T-shirt or dressed up for the evening with a blouse or dress. I would recommend a thin or medium scarf for this type of knot rather than a thick, winter scarf as it would be too bulky around your neck. Before you put the scarf on your neck, find the center and tie a loose knot. Then put the loose knot in the middle of your neck and hang the ends down your back. Grab the ends, bring them around to the front and tie a loose knot a few inches below the first knot. Play with it and adjust it in a mirror to find your perfect fit!

Cowboy Bolo

The Cowboy Bolo Tie is a great way to wear a scarf with an open jacket or blazer. It gives the scarf a little pizazz rather than just having two ends hang down in front. This is the perfect scarf tie for jeans and boots!!! Men aren’t the only one who can pull off a bolo tie.

Knot Row

Knot Row

The Knot Row is fun and very easy. You just take a long scarf, wrap around your neck with the ends hanging down and begin to tie knots in a row. Tie as many knots as you like but be sure to always tie them the same way. For example tuck the right end through each time or the left end through each time but do not rotate or the knots will not appear to be smooth.

It’s fun to mix up your scarves. Throw two or three together and color to a solid outfit. If you have a really loud or bright scarf, it helps to tone it down by adding a second, solid colored scarf.

The Double Boho Tie is perfect when using two scarfs!!! Take two scarves which are similar in length, they don’t have to be similar style such as fringe, beaded, sequins, etc. Put the two scarves together and place the center at your neck and throw the ends to your back. Take all four ends and bring them to the front and tie a loose knot. It is probably the most simple scarf knot to tie but looks quite complicated. I would not recommend using a thick, winter scarf when doubling up. It would be way to bulky and hot!

Double Boho Tie

Why belt a scarf? Some scarves are extremely long and difficult because the hang even after tying a knot. A great way to work with a long scarf is to belt it at the waist or go for an empire look. Scarves are so fashionable that you can even purchase a belt made out of a scarf!

Belted Scarf

Belted Scarf

The scarves that look really good belted, in my opinion, are the ones with fringe at the end. Let the fringe just hang and move about as you walk or blow in the breeze. Scarves are an accessory, as belts, purses and earrings are.  Mixing and matching accessories is what it is all about. I have also seen scarves wore as an accessory under a belt. Tie a silk or satin scarf around your waist and then put a thin leather belt over it for a bohemian look.

Storing scarves

photo (38)I like to store my scarves by season. I have all of the winter scarves in one storage container while the summer scarves hang in my closet since I live in a tropical climate and wear those most. There are extra steps you should take when storing scarves to prevent damage from bugs, pets, and dirt. Be sure to wash scarves prior to storing them away for a season. If you live in a rather humid climate, it is best to put each scarf in a plastic bag before putting into a storage container. This will prevent mildewing and keep bugs away.

As pretty as scarves look when they are hanging in your room or over a folding screen, do not expose to direct sunlight. This can cause discoloration and fading.

Our furry friends love to play with and make a bed out of scarves. Some cats may bite and play with the fringe hanging from a scarf which can cause them to snag. Keep your scarves out of your pet’s reach.

If you prefer to hang your scarves, purchase an accessory hanger which has holes on it that you loop scarves through. It prevents the scarves from fading into each other, sticking together or snagging in the case of sequins.

Purchasing Scarves

How do we choose which scarves which would best complement our outfits or skin tones? And even more difficult, how do we choose which scarf would be best to gift to a friend or relative? Do you know which colors wash us out and which really make us light up? We all want to know which colors make us look best year round. I have listed some colors below based on seasons. You can also research “color pallets” which will provide further color detail.

Clear Winter: Pink, Ocean Blue, Lemon, Bright Purple, Turquoise, Amethyst, Red, Canary, Black, Off-White, Dark Blue

Cool Winter: Raspberry, Silver, Turquoise, Amethyst, Crimson, Black, Off-White, Bright Pink

Deep Winter: Silver, Ocean Blue, Crimson, Black, Lavender

Deep Autumn: Mango, Copper

Warm Autumn: Mango, Sage, Peach, Red
