I’m finally allowed to share pictures from a shoot I did with Red Siren Swimwear a couple weeks ago! I met the creator/designer of the swimsuit line when she came over to my condo with my roommate. We started talking swimwear and my eyes got really big and I got so excited I actually went to my room and retrieved a huge bag of bikinis and brought them out to dump in the floor to show her all of them. We sat there drinking wine with honey masks on going through all of them and I even showed her my captain’s hat which she got a kick out of. The next day she bought a Beach Bunny bikini after I showed her some of mine and I guess you could say we really hit it off : ) We also share a love for turtles and I was happy to find out she actually donates a percentage of sales to the sea turtle rescue in Charleston, South Carolina. Turtles are one of my favorite animals and I’ve been known to stop the car and move a turtle to safety if there’s one crossing the road. All 7 species of sea turtles are endangered or on the threatened list so it’s pretty awesome of her to donate something from each and every sale. I’ve visited the Sea Turtle Rescue and even witnessed some being returned to the ocean after being rehabilitated which is really cool if you ever get the chance to go. Hope you guys enjoy these pics! We had a really fun silly day and I’m thrilled for her new endeavor and so glad I got to be a part of it! Here’s a mix of some behind the scenes and favorite looks.
On a side note, several weeks ago I tried out Tanwise to test it out and see how it looked before using it for the actual shoot. I’m so glad I didn’t wait til the shoot to try it out because I had two different people notice signs of fake tanner on me and that’s never good. If it ain’t broke… don’t fix it. I’m going back to my original tan routine. I know everyone raves about Tanwise but for my skin tone, it didn’t look as natural on me as I’d prefer.
