Getting an early start on National Beach Cleanup day, we hit the beaches on Oahu with some of our favorite ladies!
Collecting beach trash well into the sunset it was sad to see the never-ending debris and micro plastics left on the beach.
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.
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.

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.

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!

Let’s take a look at some of our favorite items (which all happen to be on sale!) You’ll thank us later 🙂
One can never, ever go wrong with a simple black bikini. Even though there is nothing simple about this cut, it’s still a staple every girls must own.
Need something with a little bit more color? We got you! The Mind.Bali.Soul collection is the perfect choice for you. Not only are the colors vibrant and full of life, the fabric is probably the softest you will ever feel. You will never want to take it off!
We also love some extra sass to our bikinis. We want something that will make our bikinis stand out from the ‘Norm’. This is where the Moonlight Mele is going to come into play, girl. High neck details that will have everyone stopping!
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.
The one thing we love about driving through the North Shore is that there are so many hidden treasures and places to stop with views you can’t find anywhere else. Enjoying the rays of the sun and the carefree spirited vibes that North shore penetrates so naturally. 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….

Meet our SPRING CRUSH, Tia Blanco. After following the surf goddess’ journey around the world, we knew this free-spirit was the embodiment of our Resort 2017 collection, Hawaiian Palms. Our latest collection was inspired by the unexpected discovery of paradise – whether it be through journeying to unfamiliar lands or simply by noticing something new in a place you know and love. “Every time I come back to the islands, I fall in love all over again with the sport of surfing and the Hawaiian Ocean,” tells Tia. A little tropical magic – Braided Thong in Blue Hawaii & Pacific The life of a pro-surfer is not for the faint-hearted… but that’s not to say it isn’t fun! In the constant pursuit of the perfect set, it’s safe to say Tia is a bit of a nomad. (She JUST got back from a surf trip in Tofino, Canada!) Thankfully, we were able to steal her for a day to do this photoshoot! The North Shore swells looked huge to us so we stayed on the sand. Of course, Tia was barely fazed but nevertheless, we saved our surf shots for the calmer waves in Waikiki. An Aloha State of Mind – Strapless Knotted V Brief in Blue Hawaii & Pacific Tia’s embodiment of Hawaiian Palms collection goes beyond her love of surfing. The 19 year old shows us that sometimes, paradise is what we make it. As a well-known vegan AND a devoted yogi, we learned from Tia that we can create our own paradises for ourselves by doing what we love. Though she and her boyfriend, Colt, travel often, they always make sure to set aside time to take care of themselves. Tia tells us that cooking healthy, vegan meals keeps her connected to her state of being, no matter where she is on the globe! Of course, we couldn’t do a photoshoot and not catch Tia doing what she does best. We hopped in the water and Tia showed us a thing or two about taming waves. With the Waikiki strip as our backdrop, we were feeling pretty lucky! Explore Tia’s Surf Shop to check out her looks from the Hawaiian Palms collection… PLUS other essentials!
We’re pretty blessed to be based in one of the ‘kini capitals of the world. Powdery, white sands line the coasts and deep blue waters mirror the (often, though not always) cloudless sky, so there’s no shortage of awesome places to hold a photoshoot. However, for this photoshoot we decided to switch it up and take our SL babes away from the shore and into deeper depths! With some help from the fellas at Hawaii Glass Bottom Boat, we were able to catch different perspectives of our island home.
We quickly got down to business, making the most of Diamondhead Crater and the Honolulu skyline.
At the height of Hawai’i’s rainy season, Diamondhead Crater is its most lush, balancing the ocean azures with deep greens. Several other catamarans bobbed around us; CLEARLY we were not only ones who saw today as the perfect opportunity for a boat ride. Not going to lie, it was tough to stay focused when the ocean was just BEGGING us for a swim… it wasn’t long before we quit torturing ourselves and took the plunge.
Few things in life are sweeter than the taste of the ocean, tradewinds, and some good tunes to match!
Do mermaids actually exist? Could we ever achieve that sort of oneness with the ocean? The general consensus is certainly “no.” (Not that a girl can’t dream!) But for those moments, we felt pretty connected to ocean. That may be as close as we’ll ever get… and for now, that’s good enough. We pondered this as our afternoon came to an end and we headed back to land.
