My New Favorite Water Bottle

Let me make this really short. Believe it or not water bottles are in right now. Along with yoga and fitness and dietary restrictions. I first saw the BKR water bottle on goop.com where most things are wildly expensive and pretentious. Then I saw it at Neimen’s, much of the same. And then I saw someone with one at yoga. So I had to have one. Usually by the time products make it to me they aren’t “trending” anymore. The trend has already happened and now they are mainstream. Which I suspect is the case with the BKR water bottle.

The Dessert That Makes Everyone Happy! Flan!

Does anybody remember the episode of Sabrina the Teenage Witch when she conjures a giant flan in the cafeteria to conclude a day of magical hilarity? Well I do. And it always struck me that flan didn’t really seem like a very mainstream choice for a high school celebration. Anyway, I enjoy flan, mostly for the burnt sugar syrup that streams all over it when you flip it upside down on the plate.

A Gadget I Never Knew I Needed: The Apple Watch

I work in the tech industry but I would consider myself a slow adopter of new technologies. I like physical books with pages and I don’t really understand twitter. My first thought when apple comes out with a new product is skepticism. Why would somebody need something like that? It turns out that the Apple Watch was what my wrist didn’t even know it was missing.

Andaz Maui: Photo Gallery

I give this place an overall rating of A-. While I maintain that this is a great hotel, our experience has declined as of late. When we first visited the Andaz Maui in 2014, it was brand spanking new. They set obscenely high standards and treated everyone like royalty. A few years later and I understand when you are at full capacity that not everyone can be a princess anymore.

I get it but at the same time I don’t like it. Especially since I chose this place to shell out tens of thousands of dollars for the most important day of my life. Yes, we got married here in 2015 and it was completely perfect. And now, I expect to be treated like royalty every time I return. Unreasonable? Perhaps. But reason has little to do with anything.

Despite my disappointment this time around, it is still a beautiful property and the food is superb (specifically Morimoto and Ka’ana Kitchen). Our routine is to lounge by the pool for hours on end sipping smoothies.
