Live a Luminous Life

The logo is luminous. The bikinis are luminous. The vibes are luminous. The owner has the most wonderful, positive energy about her and her kindness shines bright. You too can let your light shine with this new, radiant swimwear brand called Luminous Sol.

I'm wearing the Ella top in a blush palm print that reverses to a lovely lilac color. Both are sensational colors on the skin! When you reverse the suit to the lilac side, the strings are still the pink palm print and it looks like heaven together. The fit and feel is excellent with an adjustable lace-up back. One of the things I loved most about it is that there was no padding, which made it look and feel smooth (along with a quick dry-time.) We are going to give away the sliding-triangle Anya top in the above sunset photo to one lucky winner on Instagram so, be sure to follow us, @foxyandpaige and @luminoussolswimwear, to be entered into the drawing.

I just love my bottoms because they are side-tie with a brazilian "scrun…

FIJI anyone?

Vacationing on an island always sounds intriguing to me. I'm wearing my Radio Fiji bikini on the beautiful beaches of St. George Island, Florida. Hopefully I'll get to wear it while in Fiji one day, too. This is definitely one of the bikinis I'd pack for an island get-away.

"That bikini is so cute!" is what I heard many times my first time wearing it. It put a smile on my face and gave me confidence while wearing it right from the start. It's not my typical triangle top string bikini. I'll let you know why Radio Fiji may be changing what's "typical." The bikini top has underwire! It also has a decorative elastic band around the ribs and adjustable bra-style straps. This was one of the most comfortable and supportive tops I've ever worn. The fit was excellent and I didn't have to worry about a thing. This Patina Bra top gave me just the right amount of push-up as well. This of course will add to your feeling-good vibes when you wear …

Trident Swimwear

Poseidon, the mythological god of the sea, has power of the water. He was able to use his trident to stir up waves and create sea storms. Mary Wright found the trident to be quite fitting for the name of her swimwear line. Like me, she grew up in Florida, loving life on the water. Her line is meant for the girl who enjoys an active, coastal lifestyle. You can be fearless in the water and in fashion with Trident Swimwear.

Mary hand-makes and ships her swimwear from Saint Petersburg, Florida. That's where I had the opportunity to meet Matt for this east coast sunset photo shoot! It was so much fun. I felt confident in Trident swimsuits because of the excellent fit and the unique, flattering styles. I got to pick what I wanted to wear from many styles and see/feel first-hand the excellent quality of the swimsuits. They are adjustable, seamless and reversible. I also got to wear a stunning, black one-piece. The top I'm wearing features braided straps on the front and a braided co…

Sunset Paddle Board Tour with Manatees

Need I say more? I once read that if you want to go on vacation all the time maybe you should build a life that is a vacation. This obviously stuck with me as I enjoy vacationing and fun in the sun. I decided to live a vacation kind of life and you can, too.

On a typical Tuesday, I drove about 15 minutes to meet up with Evan and friends at Travel Country to see manatees while paddle boarding. I already knew what bikini I'd wear...my Lagoa Swimwear because it has a zippered-pocket for my things and for it's superior fit/comfort while doing water sports. We also got to bring our dogs so, I stashed some treats for Foxy in the pocket of my bikini top.

In a previous post, I mentioned the many benefits of paddle boarding. To go paddle boarding with manatees during sunset is even more rewarding. You can see manatees throughout the waterways of Florida. We went to a special spot in the intracoastal waters of New Smyrna Beach, Florida. Manatees are gentle, friendly giants.They need sp…

Vitamin Sea

We all need some Vitamin Sea, literally. Without the ocean and marine life, we cannot survive. Why not head to the beach in a tank that supports the sea? I wore the tank I’m sporting in the above photos to New Smyrna Beach, Florida. It happens to be the “shark bite capital of the world” where the locals, tourists and I embrace sharks. It’s important to understand and appreciate nature in all it’s capacities.

Being mindful about what we purchase is a simple, ethical step to help the environment. I really love sharks. Just the other day, I ordered my teacup Pomeranian, Foxy, a shark costume online from a big company. Foxy weighs 4 pounds and I got her the extra-small shark costume. It arrived in a plastic bag bigger than my desk and inside was another plastic bag plus unnecessary plastic “stuffing.” For the tiniest dog costume ever? Going out to people all over the world? So much waste of ocean-life-killing plastic. There wasn’t even a nice note inside either. When my Vitamin Sea packa…

"The Making of a Bikini"

First of all, you are really awesome for taking the time to read this post. I mostly blog about the swimwear brands I adore because they are inspiring, established, stylish and fun to wear! But what many people do not know is that I too can make an awesome bikini! I decided to blog about the process for others to see. The first step is to imagine a design. I often think of an idea and sketch it out. I wait and think on it some more because my creativity is constantly flowing. I knew I wanted to make something unique, functional and helpful to women. For example, Lauren at Lagoa Swimwear made a bikini top with a zippered pocket...genius!

When designing this bikini, I took into consideration that many women do not want a bikini top that ties around their neck and I thought about how I could make a much-asked-for "sporty but girlie" top. It helps that I love my job as a swimwear style and fit specialist so I constantly take note of what women need/want. One of the things that …
