Hi!  I'm Nenette Mayor, but you can call me Nen.  I'm a Polynesian Dance instructor, freelance writer, and beauty consultant.  I'm also a mom to two amazing teens, and wife to a super cute scientist-guy.

Nenette in The Sarong is all about creating a life of ease, beauty, simplicity, and prosperity.

You'll find a collection of tips and stories inspired by the breezy island life I lived in Hawai'i, and I cover beauty, family, home, fitness, wellness, food, and so much more.

So, be prepared for tales of rampant self-experimentation, weird things I discover, my time on the Big Island, and the joys of being a prairie-island girl.

Here are 3 posts to start you off...
5 Reasons Why Polynesian Dance is a Fantastic Workout
How I Created a Tropical Style Garden on the Canadian Prairie
Coconut Natural Deodorant

You'll also get the occasional story about my family just so you know that I haven't eaten my children or left my husband for any one of my pretend boyfriends.

This is also my IMDB page, because other than a gig playing a prostitute in a local short film (I am so not even kidding), I haven't done, and doubt I'll ever do, anything famous enough to have an actual IMDB page.

If you're still curious about the girl behind the blog, feel free to:
+ see what I'm doing now
+ check out what I've done
+ watch Girls on Film, which is actually just me.  One girl singular.  And not really on film -- just YouTube.  It's totally SFW.  Sorry.

So grab a cup of tea/moscato/tequila, wrap yourself up in your favourite blanket/parka/person, and relax while you dig into my online home.

Thank you -- Mahalo -- Salamat... for coming to visit!

Once upon a time, I was a riddle wrapped in an enigma covered in secret sauce.  Then y'all started asking questions...


What happened to LifeCandy?
Well, nothing.  It's still there.  It was just time for a change.

So who did your blog?
Me.  I started with the Awesome, Inc. template on Blogger.com and coded the heck out of it.  Well, I have to put that software engineering degree to good use somewhere!  My domain hosting is easydns.com.

Can we exchange links?
No, I'm sorry.  I don't do link exchanges.  Neither should you.

Do you accept items for review?
Yes, I do.  But I don't accept everything.  They have to be a good fit with my blog and appealing to my readers.


When are you teaching hula classes again?
I am currently teaching hula and tahitian dance classes at Royal Dance at The Forks.  Feel free to give them a shout if you want to join!

How long have you been dancing/teaching hula?
I started taking classes when I was 6 years old.  I started teaching in 2005.  So, it's been over 40 years now.


Where are you from?
I'm Filipina-born and Canadian-raised.  So, The Philippines.  We moved to Canada when I was almost 4.  And I still know how to speak fluent Tagalog.  In fact, I learned how to read Tagalog AFTER moving here.  It's all phonetics really.  Like Hawaiian.
What was the question again?

Did you really have a pet chicken?
Yes. In the Philippines. I named her 'Manok'... which means chicken. Yeah, two-year-old Nenette was shockingly creative.

Ok, Benedict Cumberbatch I get, but Gerard Butler?  Really?
What?  You don't think he's cute?!  Okay, so Lainey calls him "Spittle" and claims he doesn't know how to wear pants, but he's so funny, and he's cute, and he looks kinda like my husband.
