Just Bones Boardwear Giveaway!

As many of you know, I hosted a giveaway on Instagram with Just Bones Boardwear™ to spread the love for Valentine's Day. Since I am always showing off my Just Bones Boardwear™ bikinis we thought it would be a good opportunity to let the winner choose boardshorts or bikini. To my surprise, my wonderful friend won and he couldn't be more deserving. He chose the Red Skies boardshorts and they look great on him! I personally love how stylish Just Bones Boardwear™ is but they are also made of great material with adjust-ability. The men's boardshorts have a hidden flap in the back to tighten or loosen their shorts as needed. This helps make them excellent suits for surfing or simply chasing cute babies (as you can see in the photo above.) That's our friends' sweet son modeling the sunglasses I gave him. Don't they both look like such ladies' men?
Don't worry if you did not win the giveaway because you can still get 15% off on all your purchases with code Paig…

The 2019 Blue Coral Swimwear Styles Are Here!

I couldn't be more thrilled to announce the new collection by Blue Coral Swimwear! It was an honor to be one of the first to wear the new styles beautifully created at our photo-shoot one warm, winter day in sunny Miami, Florida. I also got to meet the super cute designer, who is sweet and very talented. It meant a lot to me that she was interested in hearing my opinion as to what women need and want to bring you guys the best swimwear styles, all of it "inspired by your beauty." You may remember my "Tiffany" black one-piece from previous posts and I always blog about good companies such as Blue Coral Swimwear.

To my surprise, she even created and sewed one of my favorite tops the night before. That's talent! It is called the Farrah Halter Top and it comes in multiple colors. It's totally adorable with the little tie as you can see me modeling it here (and twirling around in it in one of Erik's videos that I posted.) It can be worn multiple ways a…

It's official...I'm a Saltwater Hippie!

As I stood there looking at the foggy, cold water here in Florida, I couldn't help but think about the obvious climate change and extreme weather that has been affecting the world. I promote environmentally friendly brands for this very reason. I just want to swim in the saltwater every day and I've been really hoping to try out my new inflatable surfboard from Body Glove. Pollution of all kinds, all over the planet is the main cause of climate change and we all need to be doing something about it to literally save the world. And then it hit me, I'm such a hippie. I have long hair, prefer nature, I'm laid back, I enjoy music and I just want world peace. Would you believe I used to go around planting trees and worked on protecting sea-turtles in 4-H when I was younger? It's my love for the ocean that makes me want to save the earth and turned me into an official "Saltwater Hippie," as my new shirt says.

Saltwater Hippie is a super chill brand that I disco…

Hakuna Wear...It Means No Worries!

Do you remember the song from Disney's "The Lion King"? As Timon and Pumbaa would say, "Hakuna Matata! It means no worries." I always loved that song and what it represents about life. I'm guessing Jessica, the designer of Hakuna Wear, did too. She's an adorable, sweet surfer girl that wanted us to have no worries when surfing (and even while simply wearing a swimsuit.) She's a beauty with brains and used her chemistry PhD to bring us the best swimsuit fabrics out there! 

I had the opportunity to meet Jessica in Miami, Florida where these photos were taken. She lives and surfs in California, where the Hakuna Wear swimsuits are made. She brought us sustainable swimwear where we can be free to be ourselves. Our vibes couldn't be more in sync, especially since that's what my swimwear inspiration blog is all about. I felt very comfortable in my high-waist bottoms and sporty top. I could focus on what I wanted to do, like surfing on an inflatable…

Welcome to the Island Mermaid Tribe!

If you like island-life, mermaids and fishing...welcome to the tribe! The Island Mermaid Tribe was started by a creative Floridian in St. Augustine, Florida. Her family loves to fish and share the mermaid spirit. I do too so, I became part of the tribe with this unique "Mahi-Mahi" print bikini. I wore it fishing and we pulled the boat up to an island. I felt very confident in knowing that no matter what fish we caught my bikini was still the "catch of the day."

Did you know the name for the fish comes from Hawaii and means "strong, strong"? That can build your confidence right there as you wear this swimsuit because we women are definitely strong. The print is an original designed created by the owner and it is brightly, beautiful in person. I got to pick which color strings I wanted and I chose "ocean blue." I also chose the tie-side/triangle-top styles to guarantee a good fit and no weird tan lines. Those looking for coverage will surely appr…

Eco-Responsible Sunglasses by Moonshine Eyewear

I have worn my newest pair of sunglasses every day since I got them! These stylish Moonshine "sunnies" arrived last week in a tiny box filled with candy from England. I like that there was minimal packaging with recyclable materials only. It may not always be sunny in England but here in the Sunshine State we need our shades all through out the year. I have very lightly-colored blue eyes and the sun is harsh year 'round. Luckily, Moonshine Eyewear partnered with a lens manufacturer to assure that the lenses have excellent clarity and UV 400 protection.

A sunny day at the wakeboarding cable park in Orlando, Florida was the perfect opportunity to try them out. I'm wearing the Sundown Second-Life sunglasses in gloss black with gold lenses. There are many different styles, colors and lenses to choose from. All of the sunglasses are eco-responsible; meaning they are made from recycled plastic and eco-friendly resin. They are light-weight yet sturdy with a non-polluting l…
