Imagine paddling yourself down a river while watching dolphin play right by the board you are standing on. No worries, no care. Get out there and go stand up paddleboarding! There are many ways to have fun and keep a positive body image for your swimsuit-wearing days. This is your "swimwear inspiration" right here. I chose to wear my Platinum Sun yoga set this time because I wanted to be comfortable and secure when doing paddleboarding yoga but, I enjoy paddleboarding on sunny days in my bikini too, of course. There are so many benefits to SUP so, I've made a list for you.

1) It's good for your mind. The mental benefits of exercise and being outside are enough on their own. Paddleboarding can be very peaceful and you can clear your mind. It's been known to relieve stress.

2) It's good for your body. It's an overall body workout (with low-impact) and a lot of cardio to help your heart. You can tone up, build strength or lose weight. It can help to make you look and feel great in a bikini.

3) You can do paddleboard yoga which has added benefits. You will be improving your balance, breathing and poses in a beautiful way.

4) You will be outdoors, enjoying nature. I often see dolphin swimming and fish jumping out of the water. It's quiet and beautiful to be surrounded by water and blue skies without the roar of an engine. 

5) It's good for the environment since you are not using any gasoline or a motor. It doesn't cause harm to animals and you may even get really close to a manatee like I have. Many paddleboards are being made out of recycled plastics.

6) It's fun! You should be smiling and happy after each time paddle boarding. You can bring your fishing supplies, camera and pack a lunch.

7) It's also easier than it looks. Even first-timers are full of confidence. You can start on your knees in a calm river and later work your way up to stand up paddleboarding in the ocean on some big waves.

8) You can do it alone, on a date or with group. You may even want to switch it up to enjoy the benefits in different ways.

9)  It's a fairly inexpensive and simple hobby.

10) You get to wear your bikini or cooling watersports apparel while working out. You'll be getting your daily dose of Vitamin D from being in the sunshine and get a healthy tan. (Make sure to wear your sunscreen. ) Best of all, if you get can cool off in water! You can't do that at the gym.

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.
