Body Glove Barefoot Footwear

These amazing Body Glove water shoes were designed to make you feel like you are barefoot when you are wearing them. I got to try them out for myself, thanks to my friend Matthew at Body Glove Footwear and iSUP. They are everything Matthew described to me and more. I always thought they looked silly because of the "three toe" design however, the reasoning behind it all makes sense now. Body Glove shoes are a perfect reminder that it is what's on the inside that counts and we can't judge a book by it's cover.

The special design and engineering is what makes you climb, walk and stand as if you are barefoot. They can be worn in and out of the water, with a special drainage system that also cools the foot when out of the water. Water moves easily from the upper area through the channels in the out-sole. I wore them climbing on rocks near strong waves and they saved me from falling in! I also felt comfortable walking in them on the wet rocks because they did not slip and I had balance as if I was barefoot. I was happy I remembered to tighten the straps around my ankles, like Matthew had told me. It prevented debris from getting inside my shoes. My Body Glove shoes got wet a plethora of times but they did not feel wet. It was great! Did you know there are many physical and mental health benefits to walking barefoot? These "barefoot" shoes include many of them; such as strengthening/stretching the muscles, ligaments and tendons in your feet while getting all the mental benefits of enjoying nature.

Body Glove was started in 1953 by twin brothers and they now have products to fit all your water-sports needs. Of course, we can't forget about their cute bikinis. Great news for all my larger-busted friends. Body Glove tops go up to an F cup bra size. Yahoo! If you love the water as much as me, you should get a pair of Body Glove Barefoot water shoes and a matching Body Glove bikini. You never know when you'll need them and some water sports require that you have shoes. My Body Glove footwear even came with a bottle opener! I am so excited to wear them paddle boarding, wake skating and white water rafting! Adventure is out there!

When one of my friends told me he had heard about a company that let's you put a picture of your dog on your swimsuit (and knew it would be right up my alley of course), I went straight to my lap top and began searching for it. It didn't take long as the crowd-funding buzz had started to make it's way around the internet. I found the website and had a look for myself. This fabulous company is from Australia and called Petflair. Am I the only one who goes straight to the "about us" section or do you do that too? It helped me to see that this was a company I wanted to support because not only is it a great story with a unique idea but Petflair donates 25% of it's profits to Pound Paws (a charity for abandoned pets.)

I decided I needed to find out more about the making of swimsuits with our pets. These babies are $99, which is reasonable, especially for a customized suit with your dog! However, I was concerned with their Australian sizing because one of the mos…

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…

Warning: This may shock you!

One pieces are back and better than ever. They are naturally flattering and super slimming. The right pattern/design can enhance or downplay areas, while holding everything in. Teenagers, mothers and women of all ages are following the trend. And, you don't even have to be part of the skinny b's club. I’ve seen the Becca one-piece in this photo on all sizes and it looks good! It's also available in black, white and blue. It's a "plunge" that is tastefully see-through with a low back. Some brands cover less (like Billabong, L*Space, Ale and Vitamin A) and some cover more. Wear one with shorts and you'll have a body suit too. What's the harm in trying some on? I bet you'll get many compliments.

Embrace Diversity

It's time to embrace others... and embrace who you are. We are all different so, we shouldn't be expected to wear the same style swimsuits. You should pick out swimwear that makes you happy and comfortable. Strong women support each other and we shouldn't judge each other by what's on the outside. If you got it, flaunt it. If you want to cover something up, go for it. Show off your best asset (and don't say you don't have one because you do!) There are many styles to chose from: bra-tops, triangle tops, tankinis, swim skirts, swim shorts, cheeky, etc. Focus on your concerns, enhance your good qualities and keep a positive body image.
