Holahan Swimwear by Jafay Photography

I'm so happy! The much anticipated Holahan Swimwear is finally here. These hand-made beauties have much to offer and are available at the best swimsuit store in the world...Bikini Company! I just got it and have already worn it surfing and to the pool. A sliding triangle top with side tie bottoms are my absolute favorite. When it loosens up in the water I can retie it and this style of bikini never messes up my tan lines. It will also never go out of style.

But, there are many other reasons to get yourself a Holahan bikini from Bikini Company. First of all, it is made of recycled materials. This makes it eco-friendly and recyclable so, we can continue to have an ocean free of plastic. This also means it has excellent UV protection and is resistant to chlorine, sun tan lotion and pilling. The fabric is imported from Italy and super soft with muscle control. The swimsuits are made right here in the U.S.A. by a lovely husband and wife designer team out of Sarasota, Florida. When I requested to exchange my top for a different size, they gladly helped me out and even sent me a cute beach bag with a nice note. After designing for major brands, such as Quiksilver and Tommy Bahama, they pride themselves on having only the best quality for their line. They are also saving the planet one bikini at a time by choosing to use fabric made of recycled fishing nets.

I'm wearing the Martini bikini in "Bubbles." I was happy my friends thought it was really cute and pointed out to me that it looks inspired by the "circles" artist, Kandinsky. You can get a matching pareo in this print as well. If you aren't in the market for a bikini, Holahan Studio has a few beautiful bandeau one-pieces! Treat yourself to a new Holahan suit today. If you tag @Holahanstudio on Instagram of you wearing your new bikini you can get 10% off your next purchase. You are going to look lovely. Just keep your face toward the sun and the shadows will always fall behind you.

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…
