What started as a lifestyle blog turned into a business that elevates swimwear style, introducing a new essence of beach beauty to millions of women, in all shapes and sizes to feel confident in their skin.
Q: What inspired you to create A Bikini A Day and later, Monday Swimwear?
My business partner and best friend Natasha Oakley and I started A Bikini A Day when we realized our obsession with swimwear could be something much greater. We both love everything that the bikini lifestyle encompasses. We love the beach, the ocean, the lifestyle and traveling so we created A Bikini A Day to surround ourselves with those things. Throughout the process of wearing literally thousands of bikinis on A Bikini A Day we realized that there was something missing in the industry, and that was sexy, stylish, chic and comfortable swim that actually FITS! We decided to create our own line, Monday Swimwear. The overwhelmingly positive response to our brand inspired us to push harder and dive deep into designing and creating something that all women can wear.
Q: How do you balance being a model, blogger and an entrepreneur?
Believe it or not it’s fairly easy to balance because all of those titles for me fall under the same roof. Sometimes it can be difficult when I need to put my head down and work in the office and the pressure of having to constantly be “on” can get to me. I am lucky to have such an incredible job with so many different aspects and never take it for granted. It’s hard work but totally worth it.
They so totally make it look like hard work!
