hulihia is a lifestyle and fashion blog, based in Hilo, Hawaiʻi.



Although Hilo is where Kainoa has lived the longest, she is still a Kauaʻi girl at heart. A hula practitioner, higher education professional, and graduate student, Kainoa has a variety of interests including solo travel, photography, domestic arts, learning new languages, environmental stewardship, and Korean pop culture.

In 2008 and 2009, her photographs were accepted for inclusion in the Hawaiʻi Photo Expo, while her post, “Are You Filipina?” on Holoholo Girls was featured on Freshly Pressed in 2013.
