Honorooroo Lifestyle Story

Aloha and Mahalo for visiting our story....Welcome to the Cracker Box Journey of HL... Honorooroo Lifestyle was created by Hawaiian-born("Hono") Tina Watson with the motivation and encouragement of her Australian partner Noel Watson ("RooRoo")
Tina is the first to admit she has "Textile Hoarder Disorder".  The best part is she knows she shares this with a lot of other people! Perhaps, that's why Noel has been so encouraging.
One of her more fascinations for Textiles was from her Grandmother, who lived till she was 99 years young.  Juana was an avid seamstress who measured everything by the span of her hand. Throughout her life she sewed special "Hawaiian-style" quilts, sourced from the many Hawaiian fabric factories. Mostly, remnants and "new" materials she had a keen eye for color and pattern.  Like many Ohana's in the island, these beautiful blankets were passed down to her Children and Grandchildren.

 

Tina's "Love and Appreciation" for Hand-Embroidered Textiles was also inspired by her sister Patty, who passed away over 30 years ago.  Certainly one of the original true "hippie-chic" bohemians. She was a "Gypset-Traveler" collected exotic Japanese Kimonos and "re-purposed" them into some of the most exquisite one-of-a-kind dresses and Home Furnishings in Laguna Beach, CA.

Tina's Wild imagination, Gypsy-living taste and Eco-consciousness appetite has been synonymous with her Visual Merchandising Career which began in 1986.   Tina and Noel also operated several Hawaiian-style Food cafes in Brisbane, Cairns and the last one in Byron Bay, Australia.

She shares some of her Whole Food "Mana- tips" here on her Blog as well as some exclusive self-defense tips from Noel.  BTW, Noel also wrote a book called "Bolters and Coolers: Tales of a Bouncer, Bodyguard and Cook" find it on most online retailers or go directly to www.balboapress.com
