In the summer of 2017, Di’ Lovely had the honor of being selected as MISS TIKI OASIS — a pin-up pageant representing the world’s largest tiki festival held in her hometown of San Diego.
Proud to be the first woman-of-color to win the title, it felt like a victory to several others. It was a wonderful reign as the Tiki Queen as she shared the aloha spirit across the globe, visiting tiki bars & enthusiasts, always with the warm energy of paradise.
As her predecessors continue to represent TIKI OASIS, follow Di’ Lovely in her escapism travels. Share a drink with her at your local watering hole, or even share a hula dance with her as she teaches you to sway your hips the Polynesian way.
Much appreciation goes out to the Miss Tiki Oasis prize sponsors, brands, and bartenders who took very good care of Di’ Lovely during her reign. MAHALO!!
