For the love of Rose

I know a good high-waisted bikini when I see one. Maritimum Swimwear is one of those brands that you can fall for at first sight -it’s the quality, the focus on detail, the lining, the cut, it’s everything. It has been a while since I last felt that confident in a swimsuit, especially after I gave birth and I meant every single word I just said.

That’s the Rose embroidered bikini in blue that you see here by Maritimum, paired with Meuf pleated culottes, Blanc leather visor and Pedro Garcia satin slides.

Are you (beach) ready?

It’s the first long weekend of summer and I’m getting ready for my first beach getaway.
Here are my top resort wear and beauty picks for June:
Bikini top and bottom in rust red by H&M and cotton wrap dress by Glorious Beach Living.
Suede metallic sandals Toms x & Other Stories.
Ippolito straw and leather bag.
Inside my admittedly super cute tote there’s the Red Grape Sunscreen and After Sun lotion by Korres and the shimmering version of the famous Nuxe multi-purpose Dry Oil, that nourishes and illuminates face,
body and hair in one go.

Coral bikini and flower earrings H&M. Monoi oil by Hei Poa, an ever favourite exotic joy booster.

Dreaming of Pink Sands

The collections of Stefania Frangista, the talented pretty girl behind Pink Sands, are getting better and better every season.
As she consistently declares, her bathing suits and beachwear are produced in Greece, while her fabrics are brought from Spain and are of great quality. To her lovely swimsuits and summer dresses, Stefania has added easy-breezy long skirts, caftans, some lovely pareo-scarfs and golden platted jewels by Mara Kartali, of those you want to own.
