There’s a new fashion magazine in town. Julie Aragaki, of Hawaii Bride & Groom magazine and Hawaii In Style TV introduced her latest title, Chromatic, during a party at Bonsai last Friday.


Guests were treated to mini massages by Bhakti Massage, specializing in special events, office and home services; a candy buffet set up by Sweet Treats Buffets, pupu from the Bonsai kitchen, including the cutest miniature nigiri sushi; and a glorious dessert buffet — including mini guava cream puffs — set up by Sunshine’s Cake Creations.

These days, you can’t have a magazine without the party pictures, and I spotted one of myself from a few months ago, which is kind of surreal. I’m usually behind the camera and these days, when someone takes your picture, you never know where it’s going to show up. Taste of my own medicine, I suppose. Photographers aren’t particularly good at identifying who they’re working for, so that night I had no idea that photo would end up in print.
