    Hоw ѕhоuld I care fоr mу swim suit?

    Luli Fama Swimwear Collection

    Here are a few things to remember about bikinis:

    • Yоur swimsuit саn gеt damaged bу sea water аnd chlorine оvеr time. Sо if уоu rеаllу love water-based actions, it iѕ timе thаt уоu invest in swimsuits. Choose a swimwear label thаt uѕеѕ C-Infinity fabric bесаuѕе it iѕ resistant tо chlorine. It iѕ trulу worthwhile investing in a trusted swimwear brand bесаuѕе thеir products аrе rеаllу stylish, comfortable, аnd durable.

     

    • Rоugh surfaces саn ruin уоur swimwear ѕо dоn't juѕt sit аnуwhеrе whеn уоu feel tired аnd wоuld likе tо tаkе a break. Lооk fоr a рlасе whеrе уоu саn liе dоwn оn a smooth surface оr bеttеr spread a towel оn a rоugh surface tо nоt оnlу protect уоur ѕkin but аlѕо уоur swimsuit.

     

    • Nеvеr toss уоur swimsuit in thе washing machine tоgеthеr with уоur оthеr clothes. Washing machines саn bе tоо harsh оn swimsuit fabrics еvеn whеn set оn a gentle cycle. It wоuld bе bеttеr tо hand-wash уоur swimsuits uѕing soaps thаt аrе specifically made fоr delicate fabrics. 

     


    I’m small-chested but еvеrу timе I wear padded tops in thе water thе inserts gеt soaked аnd lose thеir shape. Hоw саn I avoid thiѕ problem?

     

    Lolli Swim Mermaid Shell Bikini

    Grab the Lolli Pixie Top in Ariel Lavender

     

    Of course, уоur measurements аrе juѕt thе beginning. Thеrе аrе оthеr things tо kеер in mind whеn lооking fоr a comfortable, уеt sexy top.

     

    • Whеn trуing оn diffеrеnt bikinis, make ѕurе thаt thе area in bеtwееn thе twо cups асtuаllу соmеѕ intо contact with уоur chest.
    • Dо nоt make thе straps support уоur breast alone! Thiѕ will bе vеrу uncomfortable оvеr lоng periods оf time, thе top will wear оut quickly, аnd thе pressure оn thе straps саn саuѕе back problems. 

     


    Hоw саn I possibly buy a swimsuit оvеr thе web whеn I can’t find оnе thаt fits right in thе store?

    Arе thеrе аnу suits thаt will gеt rid оf mу cellulite?

    Bikinis for Any Body Type

    Steal the Fashion Poet, Annie Vazquez's look here


    A popular method fоr trуing tо gеt rid оf cellulite iѕ tо wear a compression garment. Thе idea bеhind compression garments iѕ tо stimulate thе lymphatic system аnd compress thе ѕkin аnd fatty tissue. Thiѕ method mау result in a temporary reduction in thе appearance оf thе cellulite, however, bесаuѕе tight clothing hаѕ bееn found tо саuѕе cellulite in thе firѕt place, thiѕ method mау backfire оn уоu whеn uѕеd lоng term.

    Thе general rule оf thumb whеn it соmеѕ tо cellulite reduction iѕ tо wear looser clothing оn a regular basis, rаthеr thаn tighter оr compression-style clothes.

    Anti-cellulite clothing iѕ rеlаtivеlу nеw tо thе market аnd iѕ commonly mistaken fоr slimming shapewear. Shapewear iѕ similar but it works in a diffеrеnt way. Cellulite clothing nоt оnlу hides cellulite but саn аlѕо work tо eradicate thе lumps аnd bumps fоr longer-term results. It'ѕ comfortable аnd economical too, a great all-rounder.

  • Best Summer Reads

    As summer slowly comes to an end, it's time to relax, unwind, and focus on yourself. The best way we know how to relax is by sitting by the pool, in our favorite bikini, with a book in our hand, as we soak up the sun. Here are some of our favorite summer reads you must dive into before the summer is over.

    The Girls

    The Girls book by Emma Cline

    Emma Cline

    Northern California, during the violent end of the 1960s. At the start of summer, a lonely and thoughtful teenager, Evie Boyd, sees a group of girls in the park, and is immediately caught by their freedom, their careless dress, their dangerous aura of abandon. Soon, Evie is in thrall to Suzanne, a mesmerizing older girl, and is drawn into the circle of a soon-to-be infamous cult and the man who is its charismatic leader. Hidden in the hills, their sprawling ranch is eerie and run down, but to Evie, it is exotic, thrilling, charged—a place where she feels desperate to be accepted. As she spends more time away from her mother and the rhythms of her daily life, and as her obsession with Suzanne intensifies, Evie does not realize she is coming closer and closer to unthinkable violence, and to that moment in a girl’s life when everything can go horribly wrong.

    Modern Lovers

    modern lovers by emma straub

    Emma Straub
    What happens to cool kids when they grow up? That is the question Emma Straub poses in this slice of post-hipster Brooklyn life. Elizabeth, Andrew, Lydia, and Zoe were the cool kids back in college in the ’90s—and they had the angsty alternative band to prove it. Now, though, Elizabeth and Andrew are married with a teen son, Harry, and Zoe is married with a teen daughter, Ruby. After buying out the other band members, Lydia rocketed to fame on one of the band’s tracks before her sudden rockstar’s death. When some Hollywood-types appear wanting the remaining band members to sign off on a movie made about Lydia’s rise and fall, old tensions resurface among the trio. As teenagers do, Harry and Ruby manage to get themselves into trouble while their parents are reliving and rehashing their own youthful dramas. Modern Lovers has its finger squarely on the pulse of Gen X’s coming of age, and Millennials attempts to make their own mark on the world.

    Charcoal Joe

    Charcoal Joe By WAlter Mosley

    Walter Mosley
    Ezekiel “Easy” Rawlins finds his life in transition. He’s ready—finally—to propose to his girlfriend, Bonnie Shay, and start a life together. And he’s taken the money he got from the Rose Gold case and, together with two partners, Saul Lynx and Tinsford “Whisper” Natly, has started a new detective agency. But, inevitably, a case gets in the way: Easy’s friend Mouse introduces him to Rufus Tyler, a very old man everyone calls Charcoal Joe. Joe’s friend’s son, Seymour (young, bright, top of his class in physics at Stanford), has been arrested and charged with the murder of a white man from Redondo Beach. Joe tells Easy he will pay and pay well to see this young man exonerated, but seeing as how Seymour literally was found standing over the man’s dead body at his cabin home, and considering the racially charged motives seemingly behind the murder, that might prove to be a tall order.

    Picnic in Provence: A Memoir with Recipes

    picnic in provence book


    Elizabeth Bard
    This charming follow-up to the authoer's bestsellng Lunch in Paris takes us through the next period n Elizabe's life, when she moves with her family from Paris to a small town in the South of France. Each chapter weaves her take on rural living and new motherhood with recpies to bring tastes of Provence off the page and onto your table.

    When Breath Becomes Air

    when breath becomes air

    Paul Kalanithi
    At the age of thirty-six, on the verge of completing a decade’s worth of training as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. One day he was a doctor treating the dying, and the next he was a patient struggling to live. And just like that, the future he and his wife had imagined evaporated. When Breath Becomes Air chronicles Kalanithi’s transformation from a naïve medical student “possessed,” as he wrote, “by the question of what, given that all organisms die, makes a virtuous and meaningful life” into a neurosurgeon at Stanford working in the brain, the most critical place for human identity, and finally into a patient and new father confronting his own mortality.
    What makes life worth living in the face of death? What do you do when the future, no longer a ladder toward your goals in life, flattens out into a perpetual present? What does it mean to have a child, to nurture a new life as another fades away? These are some of the questions Kalanithi wrestles with in this profoundly moving, exquisitely observed memoir.

  • 5 Things to do in Miami

    We love our home in the sunny city of Miami, Florida. Whether you're lucky enough to live in Miami or are just looking to visit Miami, this city has so much to offer from its exciting foods, to art districts , to beautiful beaches... Miami has it all. We could not imagine a more perfect place. If you live here, we know you're constantly looking for new places to explore and if your visiting we have the inside scoop on cool things to do. Here’s a list of 5 things we love to do in Miami.

    Wynwood Walls

    If you think of art in Miami, it’s hard not to think of street art. Miami is a vibrant city filled with young, up and coming trends, and the Wynwood Walls are a perfect example. Wynwood was once a warehouse district until 2009 when Tony Goldman decided to transform Wynwood to the huge graffiti street art display but also a center where people can shop, get a bite to eat, or go for drinks. You’ve probably seen thousands of pictures of these elaborate graffiti walls but in person Wynwood is breathtaking. It's impossible not to fall inlove with the laid back vibe of Wynwood. By day you can grab a a pressed juice or acai bowl at Jugo Fresh and bask in the sunshine while strolling through gorgeous art. If you're into shopping you are bound to find your new favorite boutique in Wynwood. Wynwood stays alive even when the sun goes down, by night you can hangout at taverns and brickhouse filled with cool art and amazing vibes.

    Wynwood Walls- Things to do in Miami

    Bodega Taqueria

    Is it possible to turn down tacos? We don’t think so. Bodega Taqueria is one of the best Tacos spots in Miami. This cute little taco shop is has a unique taco truck interior. This taco shop is open till 5 AM making it the perfect place to get  a midnight snack. Not only are these tacos extremely delicious but the unique thing is that at Bodega there’s a secret bar. To get to this bar you have to go through a porta potty, doesn't sound too glamorous but think of it as the portal to Narnia. The hidden bar is a perfect place to hangout and grab drinks. After a long night of at the bar you’re gonna want to grab tacos at Bodega.

    Tan Topless in South Beach

    The iconic South Beach...South Beach is basically the face of Miami. Every year thousands of people travel thousands of miles to visit the famous South Beach. The super easily going vibe of South Beach allows you to lay back and relax. If you love tanning South Beach is the perfect spot, all over South Beach, you can tan topless with no worries, but there are some areas of South Beach where tanning topless is more prominent. So grab your towel, you tanning lotion and head over to south beach!
