Seafolly Vintage Wildflower

Vintage Wildflower Swimwear collection by Seafolly

We love the arrival of a new swimwear collection, especially when it’s as good as this one. The Vintage Wildflower collection by Seafolly is a classic floral print in a range of mix and max swimwear styles. Seafolly have called the print a ‘reimagined vintage floral’ and describe it as ‘bringing balmy nights and lazy days to life’. The design is so fun and feminine with it’s pretty aqua blue background and splashes of bright coral and pink, we know this will be the stand out choice for swimwear this summer. Many of the styles are also reversible to reveal a fun candy stripe.

Top tips to keep your hair looking great in the heat!

Lizzee is back to help us all keep our cool while holidaying in the heat: Part Two: Hair by Lizzee Leedham One of the benefits of the tropics is that your skin, hair and nails all seem to be in better condition than in dry, cold climates. It even seems that hair and nails grow faster. That’s not always a relief if you’re spending weeks in a bikini, hence the obligatory pre-holiday waxing sessions. Don’t forget to take a pair of tweezers. Hair seems twice as visible in the sunshine so the balcony of your room is the best impromptu grooming parlour you could ask for.

Belu Bergagna Models for Coco Bay

Our most recent photoshoot saw Team CB returning (rather eagerly!) to the beautiful Caribbean Island of Barbados. We were incredibly lucky to work with Argentinian born model Belu Bergagna. The quest to find that perfect face and ‘just born with it’ figure for a Coco Bay photoshoot isn’t always an easy task, but we were delighted to find Belu who fitted the bill 100%. Throughout the week Belu was an absolute pro, and despite the soaring temperates, tropical storms, endless outfit changes and long hours she continued to look amazing, work really hard and we are really very proud of our 2017 campaign imagery.
