Support Small Businesses!

Beachvibe Sunnies and Charming Shark Jewelry   Hi! I'm Paige, the owner of this blog and the small business owner of EcoMermaids.com . Let's shop small this season. The Saturday after Thanksgiving is an opportunity to support small in-person and online shops. Do we really need to help big businesses make money, hurt the environment and make the rich richer on Black Friday? I propose we all skip the crowds and the stress. More than ever, our small businesses need our support to stay open...and they happen to offer some of the best gifts! Giving a gift from a small business is giving a gift twice and a way to thank the small businesses for what they do for our communities. Shopping local is good for your area and your soul. I just love meeting an owner with a good heart, buying hand-made and helping the world around me. Shopping online can be good for your wallet and the environment. The benefits are endless as you can search for anything and save on gas. Both local an

Pura Vida from Costa Rica

CorpoBonito Swimwear Just Bones Boardwear TM Platinum Sun Platinum Sun & Body Glove   B.Swim and Camila Swimwear My best friend and I recently went to Costa Rica! We were greeted at the San Jose airport by our friendly driver, Enrique, by the hotel's transportation at Figa Travel. He had snacks and waters ready for us with a fun, safe, educational 3 hour ride to the hotel. He taught us so much and was super nice. He even made stops to enhance our experience and made sure we were enjoying our ride. When we arrived at the Arenal Kioro Suites & Spa, everyone there was also helpful, kind and knowledgeable. We always received excellent advice and the staff went above-and-beyond to give us an extraordinary experience. They even gave me a bottle of wine for my birthday! They booked us cool tours and told us about fun things to do while in Arenal and the nearby town of La Fortuna; such as PureTrek canyoneering/repelling, wave rafting and the Eco Terra 4-in-1 trip with waterfalls, v

Sink or Swim?

"Sink or Swimwear" is one of the best books I've ever read and I just love that title! I found the entire book to be very intriguing and interesting. The chapter titles captured my attention and I finished it within a week. It was very well-written and and easy to read. I felt it to be educational and juicy at the same time. I definitely enjoyed reading about both the "glamour and gloom" in the fashion industry and the seeds that help others grow. It reminded me of my days at Miami Swim Week and Surf Expo. The author is the owner and designer of Just Bones Boardwear™, the awesome brand I've represented for years. I met her at Surf Expo in Orlando in 2017 and we have kept a great relationship ever since. I am so proud of her for writing this book! She is kind, relatable, real and inspirational. She is not alone and quite brave. There were many messages of hope, love and support embedded in the book. Thank you for sharing your great story and advice, Jennifer.

I have so many great things to say about this Eco-friendly brand, Hakuna Wear. I decided to make a little show-and-tell video in my newest suit. This one has a bikini-lock to tighten it when it gets wet and a secret pocket. Watch the full video to find out more and check out EcoMermaids.com to get your Hakuna Wear at a great price!

A swimsuit for all your needs!

Dylee and Lylee Whether you want to wake board, surf or go fishing, I've got the swimsuit for all your needs. As you can see from these photos, I like to wear this one piece for all kinds of water sports. Even if you want to lounge around at the beach or have something cute-n-comfy to wear with jean shorts, this is the suit for you. The one piece seen here is made by Dylee and Lylee. This is one of my favorite brands from Hawaii and the pineapple print is sweet as can be. The design is flattering and gives a slimming effect. I love that it's reversible and adjustable. This is the type of suit that I think will look good on everyone and will fit all women nicely. It doesn't tie around your neck and you can pull it up high on your hips for the trending high-rise leg look. It's made of Eco-friendly fabric with UVA protection, too. You can support this small American business and other brands helping to save the Earth buy shopping at Ecomermaids.com . It'

The Hawaiian Jewelry we wore in Hawaii...

Charming Shark Aloha! A recent trip to Hawaii required some beach jewelry actually formed in Hawaii by Charming Shark. I chose to represent Charming Shark every where I went and handed out jewelry to say "mahalo" to the locals. We explored Maui, The Big Island and Waikiki Beach. Charming Shark not only makes cute jewelry- it also spreads ocean awareness and donates to great causes such as, the Loggerhead Marine Life Center & AccesSurf. I wore my jewelry snorkeling with sea turtles, chasing waterfalls, whale watching and surfing. It has all held up so well, too! It's adjustable and mostly made of natural shells. Sometimes a great accessory can give you confidence at the beach. One of the things I loved about Hawaii was it's beautiful beaches with ocean animals always in sight. I also loved that they make Eco-friendly choices to protect the planet and preserve it's beauty. It was surely one of the best trips I've ever been on and we can'
