Summer equals swimwear – what’s your lineup looking like? 

Yeah, mine needs a little work, I haven’t seen a beach in years but all that is changing over these next few months.  I’ve been self-caring it up; getting my fade to fit on, drinking lots of water  and eating  power salads. Ya girl is ready to get out and be seen y’all. Swim suits start getting worn Memorial Day weekend, so it’s time to stock up.

Creatives can get so wrapped up in our inner visions and dreams, that we forget to PLAY and EXPLORE  places that will inspire our projects further. True story, I spent months being stuck in my business, mainly because I was forcing everything. I’ve learned to take baby steps  with my brand and to allow it will evolve as I do. At this point in my life, the more I travel & engage in self-care, the more focused I become. So catch ya girl on someone’s beach this summer in something signature from the following brands.

To make this shopping process super simple – keep in mind your body type should be enhanced by your suit. There are literally styles for everyone.
