Good friends and a loving family...

...are worth their weight in gold! I've learned that it's not what I have in my life but who I have in my life. I don't have a big house, a new car or lots of money. What I do have is an amazing family, loyal friends and memories that will last forever.

A trip to the west coast of Florida brought some of my family and friends together for a weekend of fun. We always have a great time together and we spent most of our time in Florida's sunshine at the pool, at the beach, on an island and boating. I'm fortunate enough to surround myself with good people who bring out the good in others. They have lifted me up in so many ways, keeping me positive and grateful. They inspire me to fulfill my dreams. They also know I love discussing swimwear styles and I'm happy to see them becoming quite savvy at knowing swimwear styles themselves. I enjoy helping other women feel confident and knowledgeable about the best swimsuit for their bodies. And, so much more than just biki…

Beautiful Lagoa

Ever been to Lagoa, Rio de Janeiro? I haven't but, it sure looks beautiful. The founder of Lagoa Swimwear got her idea to create these unique swimsuits while spending time in the lagoons of Lagoa in Brazil. These beautiful bikinis were designed to make beach days better. You can look and feel beautiful at the beach in your Lagoa swimsuit with three "must-haves" packed into one swimsuit.

First and foremost, Lagoa swimwear comes with a zippered-pocket! A pocket you say? I have never seen or heard of a bikini with a pocket in it. It is located under the arm and you can't even tell it's there. Your beach days just got better because you can put your money, ID, jewelry and chapstick in there. What a clever way to keep your valuables safe when you're in the water. I chose to explore Egmont Key and snorkel in the Gulf of Mexico in my Lagoa Bikini with treasures stashed in my bikini top's pocket. Secondly, we won't have beautiful beaches and clear water to s…

Do you BELIEVE?

Everybody needs to believe in something. You may not believe in unicorns but you can believe this, I won this "totally fab" swimsuit on Instagram as an avid follower of @fab_bikini! Just seeing the photos of the bikinis in my feed made me smile every time. They have such fun prints and I'm so glad I decided to enter the giveaway. When I won, I got to pick which print I wanted and I knew exactly what to choose...unicorns and rainbows! After all, I never would've won if I didn't believe there was a chance.

Fab Bikini is an etsy shop based in the U.K. You can get high quality hand-made swimwear and active wear at affordable prices. I like how Fab Bikini has many styles to chose from like high-waist bottoms, bandeaus or trendy knotted tops. But to me, the prints are where it's at! You can choose diamonds, cats, Mickey Mouse, mermaid scales, watermelons, flowers, hamburgers, palm trees, pineapples and even jelly beans (just to name a few.) After browsing the Fab …

Transform your bikini...

If you are tired of tying a bikini string around your neck or experience pain, you are not alone. I am hearing quite often that women do not want a suit that ties around their neck anymore, however, the triangle style front is still a favorite. The creators of Elox have thought of a way to solve this problem. Elox patented bikini beads are a fun and innovative way to transform your bikini top. I call them bikini adjusters. You can use them to adjust your strings in different ways. Elox was designed for the independent, unique and active woman. As you can see from my photos, so far I have worn them to transform my bikini tops into a racer-back and a bra-style. They worked great on my favorite string bikinis by Seafolly and Vitamin A. I was also thinking they could be used to do something innovative with the bottom strings. Elox swimwear beads are made of silicone so they are flexible and sturdy with a soft touch. They are also available in different colors. The beads are only 15mm and…

ECO NOT EGO

That is the slogan of Koru swimwear, an eco-friendly swimwear and clothing company. I first noticed the brand Koru by it's bold and colorful swimsuits (as seen above.) I soon found out that it was a company that was so much more. With messages like "Eco Not Ego," along with Koru's subtle and sporty swimwear, I decided it was a company I wanted to support.

All of Koru's swimwear is made from ECONYL, a recycled nylon yarn. This special fabric is made from discarded fishing nets pulled out of our precious ocean. When my Koru suit arrived, the first thing I did was feel it and check out the fabric. It looks and feels like normal swimsuit fabric so, don't worry! After wearing it in the water, I noticed it dried quickly too. Not only does Koru use fabric from recycled plastic but it also gives back as member of the 1% for the Planet Organization. On their Instagram, they share facts with the world and post simple ways to help the environment while showcasing their…

Dylee & Lylee

Let me begin by saying how I first came across the Dylee & Lylee brand. A lot of brands claim to be great but, I have learned over the years that it's what's on the inside that counts. It was this simple statement that caught my eye and showed me that this is a company that cares: Donations to the ASPCA. I adore animals and I too donate to the the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®. The ASPCA is a leader in the areas of rescue, adoption and welfare to put an end to animal abuse/neglect. 

It's nice to know that you are purchasing great swimwear all while a percentage of your payment will go toward the prevention of cruelty to animals. Not only does Dylee & Lylee make great swimwear but, it is full of heart and is a company that gives back. I knew the quality and service would be fantastic and it was. I received prompt delivery, chatted with friendly staff and received a bikini of exceptional quality. My bikini arrived in a zipped plastic D…

All-in-One Bikini

Hooray for Raisins Swimwear! Designing and making a bikini that has everything we want is not an easy task. The top is a stylish high neck. I love that it's not your typical high neck because it has ruffles and a flower print with a hint of pink. It is supportive and gives your bust a fuller appearance. The back of the top has a beautiful detailed "racerback" which is not only stylish but is also comfortable and beneficial to your body. The bikini bottoms I'm wearing are a black-and-white print that can be worn with this top or other tops you may own. They are also reversible to the flower print. The bottoms have detailed strappy sides that are trending in the bikini market right now, with medium coverage in the back. In this Raisins bikini you can feel pretty and confident while swimming, jumping off of rocks, playing with the kids or doing water sports. That's why this bikini is an All-in-One choice for me!
