KORU SWIMWEAR (Tristine Davis Photography & For the Love of Water)

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 amazing swimwear. They even have gorgeous barefoot sandals that are made of all-natural products like coconuts, cotton, wood and shells.

Another important message from Koru is that all bodies are beautiful. The photos show women living and enjoying an active lifestyle no matter what they look like. There are a lot of fun, sporty styles for you to chose from; including shorts and rashguards. I just love the lace-up design of my top and the tie-side adjustable bottoms. The Jay Alders Signature Print Collection is quite lovely because he is an excellent artist and the swimwear designs include seahorses! The Laura Wells Curvy Signature Collection is cute and comfortable for all shapes and sizes. Laura Wells is an environmentalist and curvy women's model in Australia. I know I instantly felt good about myself wearing my first earth-friendly Koru swimsuit in the Bahamas because of the fit, style and the positive messages that went a long with it. I leave you with one of my favorite messages from Koru: The word "koru" means spiritual growth and tranquility, but when you see it's reflection it spells UROK and we think your reflection rocks!

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.

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…
