Just Bones Boardwear™ and Wakesurf Orlando

How's this for some swimwear inspiration? I decided to try wakesurfing for the first time. If it requires a bikini, my answer is always yes! I wore my Just Bones Boardwear™ high-neck bikini top with moderate coverage bottoms. I knew I wouldn't have to worry about adjusting my swimsuit while trying this fun water sport for the first time. I've wakeboarded and I've surfed but, luckily we do not need to know how to do either to get started.

I met up with Tarzan from Wakesurf Orlando at Lake Conway. I spotted his 2017 Malibu boat right away. He was very accommodating and easy going. When planning, he worked around my schedule and was willing to meet me early one Saturday morning. I was given some tips and literally jumped in. I didn't get up right away and there were times I felt like giving up. It's like wakeboarding except your feet are not attached to board and the board slipped away from me. It's also hard to stand up on a board when laying in the water so, there were a few times I thought maybe I should try laying on the board like a surfer. I had to have my heels on the board, knees bent, arms straight and just stand up. Tarzan kept reminding me in a positive way. He provided me with feedback of how to improve; with a smile saying "You got this Paige." He also was very smart to think of giving me a more buoyant life jacket. That way I could float and pop out of the water more easily. All the lake water I drank in the beginning was worth it when I finally got up. I'm so glad I kept trying because once I did it, I kept doing it and boy did it feel great! My best advice to anyone trying this for the first time- pull the board under you and just stand up. Once up, it's easy to be pulled by the boat while holding onto the rope. I'm used to holding onto the rope like a wakeboarder, however, I had to adjust my physical and mental mindset to let go. I had to stand up on my own, let the rope slack, get out of the wake and finally...let go of the rope. Now, that was amazing!!

I was fortunate enough to have a private lesson with Tarzan. It was relaxed and I had a real chance to practice repeatedly. He got me up, got me to let go of the rope and got me excited to do more (all in one hour.) I really enjoyed his kindness, knowledge and positive motivation. I'm looking forward to trying it again. I'll be putting on the same bikini and going to the same teacher because it was perfect. And, I learned to never give up!

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.

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…

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 best way to do something is to do it!

Hello and welcome to my site. I am a “bikini consultant” as my wonderful friends call it. My goal is to help women of all ages with swimwear style/fit and inspire you to have the confidence to wear them. I truly believe that you need to feel good about yourself to feel good in your swimwear. So many women doubt themselves and seek happiness in all the wrong ways but it can only be found within. If we can get you confident while half-naked in a swimsuit then you can be confident in any situation! I’ve always loved swimwear and the lifestyle that surrounds it. I own over 100 swimwear pieces, enjoy tropical places, design/sew swimwear and know the industry. I love to help others and to make the world a little nicer. ;)  I've had my fair share of struggles but I believe that good can come from bad. I'm unique and real but I don't pretend to be perfect so, feel free to take everything I say with a grain a salt. Enjoying life is what it's all about…to me that involves bikin…
