Fav beach or holiday place?The Amalfi Coast. I love the coastline of southern Italy, it's charming and beautiful. The beaches are rustic, and the sea is the most gorgeous shade of blue... The beaches are dotted with these great fresh seafood shacks, and the towns are lined with beautiful little shops and cafes. It's the perfect place to unwind and indulge in simplicity. I can't wait to go back!
Can’t live without for the summer? Argan Hair Oil. I have naturally dry & wavy hair, so I use it to tame my mane and keep it from frizzing out. It also gives hair a nice shine. I love that it's lightweight so that it doesn't look like your hair is ironed to your scalp.
What trend will you be wearing for the beach?Light kaftans, something that you can just throw on and still look put together. I always think women look effortlessly elegant in kaftans.
Beauty secret for the summer? Lancaster's Sport SPF30 Sunblock Stick. I spend a lot of time exercizing outdoors, and this product is great for protecting skin against excessive sun exposure. I like that it's not pasty white when applied, and that it doesn't turn into a sticky mess while working out. Another tip is to drink plenty of fresh citrus juices to rid your body of toxins and to give your skin a natural healthy glow.
What swimwear cut to you pick for your body type? love the vintage cuts of the 50s & 60s swimsuits, I think the high-waisted swimsuits flatter petite women.
What is your fav Reina swimwear piece? The solid black Mauritius. I like the clean lines and retro cut of the top.
