Balmy nights, cool sand underfoot by the soothing flow of ocean waves washing on a golden shore, sparkling in the moonlight.
Sassy Island wahines, and wise island Mumas, who have seen it all.
Young Warrior Men, with real grass armbands, and tribal tattoos, glistening with pure, clean, freshly pressed coconut oil fragranced with frangipani, ginger, or the tiare flower.
Island Chiefs, commanders of all they survey. The rules can be tough sometimes, in paradise, but everybody’s smiling.
Grass skirts and coconut bras are not the only way to experience Island flavour.
Fashionably tied sarongs, a hibiscus flower behind the ear, a shell bracelet may equally connote relaxed tropical paradise. Wear you hair out, and when you move, sway like the ocean, with grace, and poise.
If you have time, grab some island dance lessons from Dance Central or Dance Studio 101. and certainly, of you are looking for entertainment, then by all means, book your dancers from either of the above mentioned dance professionals.
Men too, may wear a sarong, tied short, with bare upper body.
For those a little less daring, try wearing cut off jeans with a basic Hawaiian shirt the more garish the better, and colourful island lei.
And don’t forget the coconut oil! Buy some delicious cold pressed food grade coconut oil from your nearest health food store, or order on line coconut oil from Supercharged foods What you don’t use, you can use in cooking! Take a spoonfull into your palm and give yourself a luscious 5 minute body rub down your shower before putting on your islander costume. Rub a little into your hair if you are feeling game – but not too much. Course hair can take more, thinner hair can become heavy. Comb it through neatly and apply your flowers. Real flowers will last longer in wet hair, if you’re playing it safe, hire some faux flowers with the rest of your outfit. That way you can be sure to uphold the vision you intended.
