The Catwalk.

Another amazing event EDITION arranged for our orientation was a fashion show that featured all of our uniforms.
They were styled by Freddie Leiba, who sometimes guest stars on Project Runway. Pretty cool.
I was chosen to represent Reception and it was actually SO much fun. I wasn't too sure about it at first because walking down a 46 foot runway in 4 inch heels is not necessarily something I enjoy. However, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. that we are OFFICIALLY OPEN FOR BUSINESS...Here is a picture of our front desk.
Along with my wonderful team & our Ritz Carlton trainers. 
The surfboard mural in the background is designed and built by surfer & artist Herbie Fletcher. The desk itself is actually one piece of wood that was shaped the same way a surfboard is.

Popcorn Orchids.

I love Popcorn Orchids.
I saw them for the first time in the hotel on Saturday and I was instantly enthralled. This picture does not do them justice.

Today marked the first day of 'countdown' at The Waikiki EDITION.
I have never experienced anything so unique & original, especially in the workplace. I FINALLY got to see the lobby where I will be working (after many weeks of keeping it under wraps) and it completely exceeded all expectations that I had. In fact, the entire hotel is truly enchanting. Completely unlike anything I have ever seen. I am SO, SO excited to be working there and have the pleasure of seeing these wonderful people every day.
Honestly, the front office team is phenomenal. Each and every one of them is wonderful in their own, delightful way. I love you all. 
Today was like a party all day long. Seriously.
There was screaming, dancing, music, insanity, and profanity. People were storming the stage and I saw housekeeping dancing like nothing I've ever seen before in my life. 
I can't imagine any job being as cool as this one.
I love my life.

My feet are little blister colonies.
This is why...
These are my new work kicks. 4 inches. This brings me to a whopping 6 feet tall. I'm a monster. 8 hours daily. That's how much I will be wearing these babies. Standing up...the whole time.

HOWEVER, this past week I got to wear these babies. 
And guess what? They also gave me blisters...I just can't win.
