DanaLouFit & For the Love of Water

What do you think of the colorful DanaLouFit bikini I'm modeling in the top photo? It is much more than meets the eye. That is sweet Dana Lou modeling in the center photo and our talented underwater photographer modeling in the photo below her. I'm honored to team up with these beautiful souls and their "For the Love of Water" campaign. Kick back and relax to find out more.

Dana started her fitness apparel line with heart and experience. Her designs are functional and comfortable for an active lifestyle. She personally makes and tests out patterns before production. With a specialization in active wear, it was a perfect idea to make swimwear as well. The one-piece swimsuits and bikinis are adjustable, stylish and feel amazing on. My high-neck top and brazilian bottoms are great for swimming, surfing and more. I love the trending "wrap around" top with brazilian bottoms Tristine is wearing. You can also get one-pieces with long sleeves, sporty tops, shorts, surfing leggings, sports bras and rash-guards. The stitching has flat seams and the prints are to die for. They will even give you free hemming services for your leggings, as seen on Dana. Most of the swimwear is reversible, too!

DanaLouFit is a brand that stands for everything we can and should believe in! It was founded on the principle of kindness to everyone (including ourselves) and to do it with style and confidence. DanaLouFit is a family business with all products hand-made in sunny Florida. Everything is made by Dana and her lovely team in their Jensen Beach shop. DanaLouFit also graciously gives back to community locally and globally, along with non-profit organizations. Dana is supportive of her community and provides every opportunity for locals to work with her company instead of out-sourcing. One of her photographers is none other than a local favorite Tristine Davis and one of her gorgeous models is local yogini Chelsea Kristine. Together these three mermaids make up the unique marketing team "For the Love of Water."

As a teacher for many years, I found it essential to incorporate spreading kindness and helping the environment into every lesson. As a swimwear blogger, I am still trying to do the same thing. I do love fashion as much as the next girl but the fashion industry isn't as glamorous as I thought. I'm constantly on the hunt for sustainable swimwear and I love to share brands that I know are doing their part to preserve the ocean we swim in while spreading kindness. DanaLouFit does just that. They recycle fabric scraps by using them in future products and they do not throw anything away. Most of the fabrics are produced in an eco-friendly way, including not using dying techniques that use water and cause water pollution. Soon you will be able to purchase DanaLouFit leggings made with a printed fabric from an incredible photo Tristine took of a coral reef. A portion of the sales will be donated to reef/ocean conservation. Phenomenal!

BEST. SWIMSUIT. EVER.

Petflair Swimsuit & Photography by Lety Remior 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,

Live a Luminous Life

Luminous Sol Swimwear 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 ar

Warning: This may shock you!

Becca by Rebecca Virtue 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. Shop for one piece swimwear at Surfshop (click here)  

My Oasis...the Inflatable Paddle Board by Body Glove!

Body Glove Paddle Board by Surf 9 LLC / Just Bones Boardwear TM Bikini / Just A Blink Photography by Joleen What is your favorite way to start the day? For me, there couldn't be anything better than to wake up early and go paddle boarding with my dog. A typical visit to the Orlando Surf Expo made my dreams come true when I walked away with an inflatable paddle board and surf board by Body Glove. That's right, I said "inflatable!" I have a small 2-seater and I can easily fit them in the trunk or passenger seat. Then, I can inflate them when I get to my location. Absolutely perfect! My boards arrived at my home in boxes with a guide book and all the necessary accessories (see photos below.) I always borrow, rent or share boards but I have never actually owned one so, to me this was like Christmas morning! Everything was labeled and easy to understand. It all fits nicely in bags with handles and straps to carry it all around. The boards roll up

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. I'd like to thank my beautiful family for taking these photos with me and for being wonderful, supportive women.
