Island Mermaid Tribe bikini with Moonshine Eyewear Sunglasses

If you like island-life, mermaids and fishing...welcome to the tribe! The Island Mermaid Tribe was started by a creative Floridian in St. Augustine, Florida. Her family loves to fish and share the mermaid spirit. I do too so, I became part of the tribe with this unique "Mahi-Mahi" print bikini. I wore it fishing and we pulled the boat up to an island. I felt very confident in knowing that no matter what fish we caught my bikini was still the "catch of the day."

Did you know the name for the fish comes from Hawaii and means "strong, strong"? That can build your confidence right there as you wear this swimsuit because we women are definitely strong. The print is an original designed created by the owner and it is brightly, beautiful in person. I got to pick which color strings I wanted and I chose "ocean blue." I also chose the tie-side/triangle-top styles to guarantee a good fit and no weird tan lines. Those looking for coverage will surely appreciate the full bottoms of the tie-side style. There are other styles and prints, including sports wear and mermaid scales! The mermaid scale print is shiny and fun.You can find it used for the Island Mermaid Tribe's swimwear, clothing, hats and car seat covers! There are different colors to choose from, too. 

Guys can be part of the Island Mermaid Tribe and there is much more than just bikinis. I especially like the men's shirt that says "Mermaid Security." Check out the website to also see the wood engraved phone cases that you can even get personalized. There are uniquely decorated wine glasses, home decor and party supplies. Use my discount code to save on every purchase: FOXY2018. If you're in the Florida area you will be supporting local and saving money. And remember, good things come to those who bait!

BEST. SWIMSUIT. EVER.

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.

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. From left to right: Erin in LaBlanca, Amanda in Shade and Shore, Paige in Just Bones Boardwear, Katey in Vineyard Vines, Pamela in Merdona
