Behind one of the scene of our fashion story “PRIESTESSES OF COFFEE LANDS” shot in Kauai with really amazing team and an example of manifestation of thoughts. While conceiving ideas for upcoming Kauai island trip I wanted to depict nature and special features of Hawaii typical to those island features such as coffee beans, mountains, hills, volcano eruption. Well, be careful what you wish for. I am shooting my “manmade volcano” while the real volcano is erupting on another island. Universe manifesting!!!! Just amazing!!! “PRIESTESSES OF COFFEE LANDS” in Basic Magazine Beverly Hills, California.
