Days Off With: Mahina Alexander

 


While we’re longing for summer sun and daydreaming about exotic getaways, we had to take a peek into the life of our favorite bronzed Hawaiian beach babe, Mahina Alexander. Whether she’s prancing in the white sand taking photographs of her friends or exploring tropical rain forests with her beau, Jay, Mahina shows us what a perfect day off looks like on the gorgeous island of Oahu. After learning about her life, style and daily inspiration, we couldn't help but fall even more in love with her carefree attitude, genuine kindness and her itsy bitsy bikini style.

What's your idea of the perfect day off?

MAHINA: I'd spend the day venturing off onto the road less traveled into the middle of nowhere with Jay where we'd hang out under hidden waterfalls and lay on beaches that none but few really know about. I'd bring a back pack full of food, water, rolls of film and my journal. 


I prefer my bikinis to be: 

MAHINA: Minimal coverage (for minimal tan lines) and comfortably sexy. 


What's next on your bucket list?

MAHINA: Well, I have yet to leave the US! Which I'll be doing in 3 days when I visit my boyfriend, Jay, at his home in West Aus. So that's a big one, and about a week after that we'll be leaving to Bali!

I feel most at home when...

MAHINA: I'm laying in the sun listening to the sound of the ocean with Jay laying next to me. He will always feel like home to me.

Do you have a favorite spot on Oahu? 


MAHINA: Everywhere on the north shore is beautiful and amazing. I can't tell you my favorite spot because it deserves to be kept secret... But I can tell you my favorite thing to eat! ;) An ahi sandwich from sharks cove grill with avocado and extra ahi sauce! Probably the best thing I've ever tasted. No joke.

I feel sexiest when... 

MAHINA: I'm dancing or when I've just finished yoga/working out. 


One thing most people don't know about me is...

MAHINA: I love singing and making music. music speaks to my soul. I don't know who I'd be without it. 


Puppy love or cattitude? 

MAHINA: Cattitude all the way.

When I'm not on the beach, you can find me...

MAHINA: In the forest, curled up in bed writing, reading a good book or watching movies with my cuddle buddy. 


What do you do to pamper yourself?


MAHINA: I love doing face and hair masks. I also love taking hot baths. My grandma makes these amazing body scrubs, face scrubs and face masks out of coffee, herbs from our garden, salt, sugar, and oils. They make your skin and face so soft.

What does a typical day in the life of Mahina Alexander look like?

MAHINA: Some days I'll wake up have some breakfast, answer my emails and then just sit outside with a good book. Other days I'll wake up have some coffee and race down to the beach with my camera and some friends to spend the day soaking up the sun and shooting photos. Then there are the days that I'll just stay in bed and read and write all day.

Describe your personal style:

MAHINA: My style typically revolves around comfort. Bomber jackets, jeans, tee shirts. But then I also love mesh, embroidered things, sun dresses, and skirts. it really just depends on my mood and the weather.

Best piece of wisdom I've been given is: 

My grandma has always told me to "let go or you'll be dragged." If I ever feel like there are people or things in my life that no longer serve me any purpose and are effecting me negatively in some way, I cut the chord. To me, this is super important for mental, physical and spiritual health!
