What’s In My Beach Bag!

5 Jun

Summer is here and beach days are inevitable. I pretty much take the same few things to the beach every time I go. They include sunglasses, rubber flip-flops, a hat, a book/magazine, lip balm, SPF and a kick ass bathing suit! While we’re on the subject of kick ass bathing suits, I have recently learned about the cutest bathing suits from an awesome lingerie company by the name of Naja. Besides having super cute styles that are flattering, the bathing suits and bras are made from recycled water bottles!!!!!! The innovative swimwear is also made with water free printing which is pretty neat. No water= no water waste.  Definitely check out their website, views on social impact, and women empowering women. Below are my personal essentials when it comes to beach days! Have a great weekend! XO, Journey beach bag Clockwise from top left: Eos lip balm in mint. Naja Bathing Suit. Forever 21 Fedora. Ralph Lauren Tote. Old Navy Flip Flops. Neutrogena SPF 110. I’ve been using this SPF for years and it is the BEST! It doesn’t break me out and it’s SPF 110!!! I wear it all summer long. Girlboss Book. Gucci Aviator Sunglasses.

Model Robyn Lawley Promotes Healthy Body Image

12 Aug

Meet Robyn Lawley, a gorgeous 6’2″ Australian beauty who is taking the modeling world by storm.   Lawley has been featured in countless magazines including Elle and Vogue and made history becoming the first plus sized model to pose for Ralph Lauren.  The 23-year-old was an instant inspiration for girls around the world when she was featured on last years July cover of Vogue Italia with fellow plus sized models Tara Lynn and Candice Huffine.  Lawley was also recently named the new face of UK lingerie brand Boux Avenue.    …..If you’re still looking for the “plus sized” model , the pictures below are correct, like buxom beauties who came before her i.e. Crystal Renn and Marilyn Monroe, Lawley is equivalent to an american size 12 which is quite a common size but considered plus sized in the modeling world. Lawley though doesn’t think of herself as “plus-sized”, she prefers to use the term “normal sized” and is an activist supporting healthy body image, particularly for young girls with low self-­esteem, and also has a food blog called Robyn Lawley Eats.  Bravo to beauty in all forms.
