National Beach Cleanup day

Getting an early start on National Beach Cleanup day, we hit the beaches on Oahu with some of our favorite ladies!IMG_9308

Collecting beach trash well into the sunset it was sad to see the never-ending debris and micro plastics left on the beach.

IMG_9307

At San Lorenzo Bikinis, there’s nothing we love more than the ocean and all that lives in it. Keeping the beaches clean is not just one of our daily goals, it’s our lifestyle. In these busy modern days its easy to forget how connected to and reliant on humans are with nature. Clean beaches and clean oceans are so vital to our health and the health of everything on this planet.

Megan Costello-9236

So remember to pick up your trash and try to always leave the beach cleaner than you found it. There’s lots of creatures you’ll be saving in doing so.

Its important to me to cleanup the beaches, because just like a dirty room if you don’t clean it up its just going to pile up. So help us in cleaning our beautiful beaches bikini babes.

A Love Affair with Mary Leest

We spent the day with the most gorgeous and lovely Mary Leest (@maryleest) shooting our most beloved collection Le Romantique.  She stunned us with her effortless moves and beauty.

Mary is an Instagram sensation, her lifestyle photos are so captivating, she’s managed to obtain almost 1 million followers! Mary is also a well known Russian Youtuber and Fashion Blogger and trust us we did our homework on her and nowhere did it state that she was previously a Fashion Model!

We were so stunned when she told us that she used to model! I mean it totally made sense! She made it very clear that she knows how to be comfortable with a camera in front of her! It was amazing to see her work the bikinis how she did.

She knew how to flawlessly work the camera and made Le Romantique and absolute dream.Photo Aug 09, 8 22 50 PMPhoto Aug 09, 8 27 18 PM Photo Aug 09, 8 29 23 PM

It was all a dream…

We explored the island with Nellie one of the island’s talent surfers, natural beauty, a fun and easygoing spirited women.

We drove along the coast to discover a secret crystal clear & beautiful white sandy beach, off to the side of the road.

We walked through a tunnel of branches and gorgeous homes on the left and right of us, it opened up to this secret beach that looked like we just stepped foot onto the island of Tahiti.

Le Romantique Debut

Our NEWEST collection has us swooning.

We are obsessed with the prints, cuts, and feel of this whole line! We were able to spend the whole day with our blonde babes sipping some Rosé and enjoying the summer sun.

We wanted to give you a look into our new collection by going Live on Instagram and showing you all the new cuts and how they actually fit on a live person. This way at least you know how they fit and what the girls had to say about the feel and fit.

However, if you missed our live show we have some photos to show you! Also, how insanely gorgeous is our location?

Each girl, had 3 different looks so they were able to experience each bikini.  This collection is made with the same fabric as our Mind.Bali.Soul collection and that fabric feels like heaven. It is seriously so soft!

Those are some of my favorite bikinis that can really make a statement against the crowd.

Now, these are some of our favorite picks for outfits.

I had a really hard time picking them, I mean there are so many options, my computer had a hard time loading them all.

I picked these outfits because you can really do a lot with the pieces. You can dress them up by adding some heels or make them a casual Sunday fun day dress.

Spring Is In The Air

Whichever way you go, any road will take you to the North Shore. Ah, the life of an islander!  Where the air is clear and the lifestyle is much more laid back.

We thought let’s take the long way there, to really enjoy the gorgeous views, and escape reality for a moment. While enjoying the breathtaking scenery, we spotted a little yellow shack by the beach. Did someone say Papaya bowls? It’s our newest, favorite smoothie shop! The Sunrise Shack – refreshing, locally made and oh-so picturesque! We stopped there for a bite and snapped some pics before continuing on the rest of our adventure.

Shimming our way to the top of the mountain that overlooks Waimea Bay. It was breathtaking. WOW was our only word… We really do live in Paradise….

Fire and Water, or Should We Say Lava?

The rumors are true and we are SO excited to be opening a new store on the BIG ISLAND  of Hawai’i! We will be opening on November, so call your gals on the Big Island & let ’em know we are coming for them! Follow @sanlorenzo_bigisland on instagram to stay tuned for updates.

Our O’ahu brand ambassadors Michelle and Tatyana couldn’t wait until the store opening in November to explore, so they packed their bags and took a flight over as soon as they could. Their hearts were hopeful, but nothing could prepare them for the adventures to come, including the opportunity to take a spontaneous trip with Hawaiian Lava Boat Tours.

Our first morning, Tatyana and I awoke to the the most gorgeous sunlight in our jungle bungalow.  The birds were singing and the smell of the ocean joined us as we explored our tree house and enjoyed a yummy breakfast.

Next, we cruised to a stunning black sand beach.  Prepared with our dive gear, we set out into the crystal clear waters.  We swam for hours off shore and around to secret coves, where we climbed up rocks and practiced our diving. We laughed and played all day in the waves, it was BEAUTIFUL.

Then, it happened. Our encounter with lava. We met up with Hawaiian Lava Boat Tours, loaded on the boat, shaking with anticipation, and began the hour long ride to the volcano.  

sl_bi_119

sl_bi_126sl_bi_152

At first sight we could see the volcano far off in the distance. Then suddenly, it was there. What can only be described as pure magic, we experienced lava pouring into the ocean. Bursting and bubbling the fiery red molten lava spewed just feet away from us.  In awe, we could barely contain our joy, occasionally dancing and dipping our toes in at safe distances.

Meet Moona Whyte

usemoona

We are so excited to introduce MOONA WHYTE: Hawaii native, world traveler, professional kite surfer and our newest blog contributor. Moona’s latest excursion took her and her favorite Mermaid Dreams ‘kinis on an incredible trip throughout the Eastern Australian Coast. Follow Moona to the land down unda and stay tuned for the many adventures to come.

rsz_moonaroadtrip1

       I made it to Australia! It’s no surprise that one of the best thing to do here is to go on a road trip. The coast is full of rocky points with perfect waves and beautiful lookouts. All you need is a surf van and a road map (ok, or your iPhone). We started in the quiet town of Agnes Waters. It’s located five hours north of Brisbane, in Queensland and is near the popular caravan park in Seventeen Seventy.

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

       Our next stop was the surf spot located on a massive white sand beach. I wore my favorite ‘kini for surfing: the Kelp Koi & White Sand Sport suit, paddled out on my longboard and caught mini wave after mini wave. I surfed until golden hour when the beach was empty, my arms were tired and my heart was happy. Then we climbed up the headland for a view of the gorgeous blue water below. Talk about a perfect day.

rsz_1rsz_moona2

       The next morning we continued onwards down south to the Sunshine Coast (yes, it’s as sunny and beautiful as it sounds). The road was long and ran through grassy fields and hills. Kangaroo sightings: One.

rsz_moona4

       Next stop, Noosa.  The Noosa National Park extends from Sunshine Beach, around Alexandria Bay, to the headlands at Noosa. I dedicated multiple days of my trip in Australia to walking along the National Park Trail. The National Park Trail starts at First Point as a boardwalk and spans to the Little Cove lookout. From there, you can walk along the rocks or stay on the boardwalk until you get to Nationals. Then there is Tea Tree Bay, an amazing point break for surfing, and finally Granite Bay. I heard about a secret ‘fairy pool’ at one end of Granite Bay and was determined to find it. Sometimes, all you have to do is walk around a little bit to find these secret spots.

rsz_1rsz_9Shop the Ocean Braided Thong

       The main pool had a beautiful blue-green hue and super clear, glassy water. I climbed down right away for a dip. There were blue jellyfish at the bottom of the pool that got washed in by the swells. Even the jellyfish are beautiful here. On the way back, I jumped in the water at Granite and pod of dolphins swam by showing us their fins.  They didn’t hang around for a photo op but nevertheless, it was a gorgeous day adventuring in my new Ocean Braided Thong!

rsz_moona6

       Now, let’s talk waterfalls. Most people travel to Australia in search of waves (ok, that’s what I did too), but a lot of people don’t know about the abundance of hikes and waterfalls just inland from the coast. When I heard about a massive 360ft waterfall not far from the beach where we were surfing, I just couldn’t help myself. I grabbed my Fuschia Caged Thong kini and Shallow Reef Studio tee and headed to the hills!

DCIM100GOPROG0178222. Processed with VSCO with m5 preset

       Unlike pretty much every waterfall I’ve been to, the hike started at the top! We drove up the mountain and parked at the top of the waterfall, then climbed down the stairs to the pool at the bottom. If you happen to find yourself on the Gold Coast of Australia, I would highly recommend visiting the Springbrook National Park. It is full of incredible waterfalls and hikes for anyone looking for an adventure. I only had time for one waterfall this trip, but I’ll be back next time for more!

Processed with VSCO with m5 preset

       This trip was absolutely one for the books. There’s nothing like hopping in a van and chasing waves in place far away from home. The Australian Coast is full of hidden gems like the waves, tide pools, waterfalls and breath-taking views I was lucky enough to see. I can’t wait to go back!

We are on the hunt  for blog contributors like Moona who have a passion for life and love for beach culture. Please email us at publicrelations@sanlorenzohawaii.com, we’d love to hear from you!
