Also spent some quality time in the Polynesian Cultural Center and learned my sarcasm comes from Samoa and my sass comes from Fiji. That 2% oceanic had a massive influence apparently in my personality. #hawaii#polynesianculturalcenter

“Let’s Talk” ...DIGESTION & How it works!.
🔹Your digestive system turns food you eat into nutrients the body uses for energy, growth & cell repair...let's explore it’s journey!.
🔹Here is how it goes:.
🔹Mouth - digestion starts here w/ salivation & chewing; saliva mixes w/ food to help it break down so it can be absorbed.
🔹Throat - (or pharynx) food leaves mouth through throat toward the esophagus.
🔹Esophagus - this muscular tube pushes food toward your stomach w/contractions, there is a valve @ bottom that keeps food from going in the wrong direction.
🔹Stomach - this organ has strong muscular walls, food enters & mixes w/ acid & digestive enzymes breaking food down, & killing bad bacteria & turning it into a liquid or paste.
🔹Small intestine - next food enters this long tube that's wound up in abdomen. It's got 3 segments: duodenum, jejunum, & ileum. The pancreas sends enzymes & the liver sends bile, helping continue to break down the food. Contractions move food through the pipe, while 90% of digestion & absorption of nutrients & water into the bloodstream happens. 📍Food can stay here up to 4hrs until absorption is done & the "not-used" stuff is sent onward.
🔹Large intestine - this large muscular tube starts w/ the cecum, the ascending colon, then transverse colon, to the descending, & finally the sigmoid colon - before moving to the rectum! 📍Again, contractions move waste, & more absorption takes place; eventually a poop is formed! Woohoo! 📍This stool hangs out in the sigmoid part until it gets full & your body sends it to the rectum.
📍It usually takes 36 hours for the poop (debris & bacteria) to get through the whole large intestine.
🔹Rectum - stool hangs out here until it's time to push it out! The stool/gas reaches the rectum & sensors tell the brain its full!
Sphincters are muscles that hold poop in until the brain gets the message, & they relax & release the goods.
🔹Anus - this final part has a lining that detects filling & lets brain know if its liquid or solid …. OR GAS! Lol... the end!
@itwainphoto you are amazing 📸 thanks for these amazing pics❤️.
Obsessed with these shorts to the point that I don’t care how cold it is, I’ll wear them anyway😍😍 They are from a local vintage business @vellavintage!! This shop is so amazing. The owner, @exploring_erin, is an amazing entrepreneur putting an end to fast fashion. I love seeing other young entrepreneurs, especially local ones! Please head over to Vella, give them a follow, and maybe even place an order. Who am I kidding? You’ll fall in love and won’t be able to resist ordering somethin! Erin, you’re an amazing human and I’m forever supporting Vella!! Keep kicking ass at being a light in this world! 💛🌼🌻🧡 #vellavintage#shoplocal#youngwomeninbusiness
Spent last night witnessing a perfect North Shore sunset followed by an impressive super wolf blood moon. The image above is a composite of two images shot from the same beach one hour apart.

Nicknamed as "the Garden Isle," the Hawaiian island of Kauai's dramatic cliffs and pinnacles of its Na Pali Coast have served as a backdrop for major Hollywood films. Can you guess the names of these films? #seeqr#seeqrtravel

Ended the day here :) Philippines I adore you and I’m happy to say I’ve seen very little trash (and I always see the tour guides picking up) and my coconuts have most often been served with a bamboo or plant straw!! So good job everyone! I’ll be here a few more days diving, working and playing on boats - couldn’t be more stoked💗 #ElNido#palawan
