    Girlfriends! in November:

    Thank goodness for Girlfriends!

    Every month, there are new and return guests. With guided topics,  you won't feel out of the loop! It's a fun experience for everyone!

    November is a month of Gratitude. There's so much to be grateful for; from all the things that you have, don't have, who's in your life now, where you live, what you are free to do and so much more. When we are in the moment of Gratitude, our heart is engaged, our brain is stimulated, our muscles relax and we are in an elevated state of consciousness. Imagine a group of us together, joining in on conversations centered around Gratitude and the energy it would exude. Magical. It's simple but it's everything. Ladies, please join us for dinner at the beautiful rooftop restaurant, Buho Cocina y Cantina in Waikiki with live music and a night filled with Gratitude, joy and laughter hosted by Brandi Kiana-Jo, a Holistic Coach & Experiential Event Coordinator. Cost: $45

    Starts at 6:00pm and ends at 9:00pm. For more information, call (808) 393-5527 or email Menu will be posted shortly.
