Triangl Swimwear

Friday, 29 August 2014

I can't believe this weekend is Labour Day, and summer is coming to an end. Living up here in Ottawa, Canada we have some long and harsh winters, so I cherish every moment of the summer heat and sunshine. It is definitely my favourite season.  What better way to hold onto the last bit of summer than with a new swim suit and an absolutely gorgeous one at that. I, like most girls, had been lusting over the Triangl pieces forever!

Triangl is based in Hong Kong, but managed and run by Australian's. They make the most fabulous swimwear and they were kind enough to offer me a suit of my choice! I may have done a little happy dance right on the spot. I chose the Milly in Candy / Pink and it is gorgeous! It is made out of Neoprene, which is the fabric that wetsuits are made of. It is firm, has a stretch resistance and helps to shape your body. I personally think it is super comfortable and I like how thick it is, so different from a regular swimsuit.

As for choosing a size, they have a very good sizing chart and information page. You can also live chat with someone if you need extra assistance. I had looked online for reviews on the Milly and didn't find too many so I thought it might be helpful to talk about sizing.  According to the chart, I should have went with an XSmall bottom and Large top, according to my most recent bra fitting which came in at 32DD. However,  I decided to go with a small bottom and medium top and it fits perfectly! I personally don't like when the bottoms cut into my hips and know that the Neoprene fabric doesn't give, so I am happy I went up a size. The top fits great as well, I thought the large would be too big around my body because it has a clasp and not a tie back so I knew I wouldn't be able adjust it.

I received the delivery very quickly and am so, so happy with everything about this bikini! Now I just need to find a beach or pool to really try it out :)

The Girls Favourites || MawdsleyLoves, Jumping + Jellybean, She Does Justice

Wednesday, 13 August 2014

This post is going to be a bit of a mix with some of our favourite things. My crazy little lady is on a bit of photoshoot strike, I'm hoping it's just a phase ;) 

MawdsleyLoves is a Canadian based company that offers handmade fashionable and functional pieces that we absolutely adore! I have to say the absolute mayhem tank is my fav, it's neon pink and pretty much sums up our daily life! I paired the tops with our white washed jeans, but they will pretty much go with any outfit. 

Jumping + Jellybean is owned by my sweet Instagram friend Molly! I love her unique handmade items, and she is also amazing at crocheting gorgeous pieces too! The Pom Pom lace headbands are so adorable, we are obsessed! Molly also has a sweet little boy and girl named Ellia :)

Can we talk about how perfect this MawdsleyLoves Stay Fresh tank is? Everyone knows how much I love pineapples,  not only are they delicious but they are super cool too.

Finally from  MawdsleyLoves is a little sneak peek into their Fall Collection! This Sea To Sky Collective is such an adorable one, and we love the concept, all play, all day, no matter where you are!

Finally a little something for myself!! This She Does Justice  Black & White Knotted Turban is one of my new favourite pieces! What I love even more is the concept behind what shop owner Megan does. She is an advocate for organizations who are working to reach those in need, and a portion of sales each month goes out to an organization to help them with their mission. How great is that? You can read more on her blog!
