Almost Happy Hour Drink of the Day... Lava Flow

This week for our Almost Happy Hour drink, we were inspired by the Agua Bendita Bendito Totem bikini. It's bright red with a multi colored trim which reminded us of the sweet and refreshing colors of the Lava Flow. This bikini real turns up the heat and this is the perfect drink to help you stay cool!

Lava Flow Ingredients:
1 ounces light rum
2 ounces pineapple juice
6 ounces pina colada mix ( coconut cream and pineapple juice)
1 ounce strawberry puree
1 small chunk pineapple, for garnish

Blend rum, pineapple juice, and pina colada mix with 1 cup of ice. Next, take a glass and coat the inside with strawberry puree. Pour in colada blend. Finally, use a spoon to drag the strawberry puree up through the colada drink, creating a pink stripe. Garnish with a pineapple chunk, and serve.

 Everyone loves a perfect pairing, peanut butter and jelly, wine and cheese, or even Angelina and Brad. Well we are excited to introduce our newest pairing that might just become one of the greats. The moment that we have been waiting for has arrived, All Wet Beachwear and Ciate London. Nothing goes together better than a great nail polish with your favorite little bikini!

Ciate London, pronounced see-are-tey, was founded by Charlotte Knight and became famous the world over for their stunning caviar manicures. They have redefined and redesigned everything about your traditional nail polish. Starting from the inside out, they have amazing rich and vibrant pigmented colors that last. It has also been formulated for easy application and provides a smooth and even finish. The brush itself is a 250 bristle flat brush design with a long handle to provide the best strokes each time. The uniquely shaped bottle has an ergonomic design that sits better in your hand and allows for maximum control while applying. No present, even to yourself, would be complete without a small black satin bow.

The current collection is filled with so many unique colors you will have no problem finding the perfect shade to match all of your swimwear. Ciate London offers bright and bold, pretty and pastels, dark and dangerous, and I can't forget sparkles in every color! With so many option to choose from it's nearly impossible to pick just one. In addition to their nail polishes Ciate also offers manicure sets as well.  Cavier, neon glow in the dark, and flower manicures are other great ways to let your creative side run wild. Did I mention how delicious their nail polish removers smell??? I know what you're thinking, perhaps I shouldn't be sniffing nail polish remover. Perhaps you are right, but yet another great benefit about this brand is that the remover is acetone free! So as I was saying the Chocolate scented nail polish removers smells dangerously good!

As with everything we sell here at AWB we had to check out the product first hand and we are definitely pleased by the results. With spring finally here what better way to test our newest product and prepare for our bikini filled weekend ahead by painting our nails in one of their bright and rich colors. The results were amazing. The color is saturated and really holds up well over the course of the week. This color is going to be just the pop I am looking for to pair with our new Raja Embroidery Bandeau Bikini.

So while your picking out your next killer bikini check out Ciate London nail polish for the perfect finishing touch!

Almost Happy Hour Drink of the Day... Margarita

As another work week comes to an end, it is time to celebrate that the weekend is just beginning! With a long week like this one I need something reliable for my Almost Happy Hour Drink of the Day. My taste buds have been calling out for something tart yet refreshing. Inspired by PilyQ Barcelona's Caribbean Sea Zen Halter Bikini, what better way to quiet their screaming than with an old favorite, The Margarita. This tequila based beverage is the quintessential drink for relaxing under the palm trees, with you toes in the sand, and the ocean stretched out before you. Whether you're a frozen or on the rocks, salt or sugar rimmed, fill up some glasses and enjoy! 

Margarita Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 ounces tequila
  • 1/2 ounce triple sec
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Shake well. Salt the rim, if desired, and pour the contents into a chilled margarita glass.

Garnish: Garnish with the lime wedge.
Glass:  Serve in a margarita glass.

Bikini Outfit Of the Day!

As the weather is slowly warming up we can't help but get excited over the much anticipated arrival of summer! With Memorial Day slowly coming around the corner I just couldn't wait any more to start up with our Bikini Outfit of the Day.

What better way to show off your soon to be tan skin than in this sexy white triangle bikini. This suit is one of the many great new pieces in the PilyQ Barcelona's new Summer 2014 collection. Multicolored embroidery detailing adds a flirtatious touch to this classic white bikini. With the option of Full or Brazilian cut coverage this is the perfect suit for everyone.

However, what is a suit without some amazing accessories? My personal favorite pairing is Ciate London's Halo nail polish. It's a beautiful pearlized white color that will help bring out the bright colors of the suit and will compliment your sun kissed skin tone. The best part about this color is that it can be applied lightly for a translucent sheen or in multiple coats for a mesmerizing iridescent pearl effect.
Slip on these David Yurman braided bracelets and some gold toned Ray-Ban Aviators for a cool and easy addition. We finished off this look with a Michael Kors tote in a neutral color that has plenty of space for all your beach day necessities!

The Many Bikinis of Rihanna

Rihanna was born and raised in Barbados, but has been entertaining the world with her chart topping music for years.  She is known almost as much for her songs as she is for constantly reinventing herself and her style. Traveling the world has never stopped Rihanna from enjoying her time in the sun. Whether she is in Hawaii, France, Mexico or even her home country of Barbados, RiRi is a sun worshiping goddess who has no shortage of awe inspiring suits in her closet. One of my favorite looks that she dons is the one piece monokini! She is one of those rare people who could wear a potato sack and still look gorgeous. So imagine the damage she can do in one of these to die for one piece suits.

The common misconception is that if someone is wearing a one piece that they are probably trying to hide some of their imperfections. As the world can attest, this couldn't be further from the truth when it comes to Rihanna. While the one piece can lend itself to a more modest style, with today's wide variety of styles there is a one piece monokini for all personalities. In every magazine on the shelf the pages are littered with celebrities and their amazing bikinis. Leave it to Rihanna to go against the grain and remind the world that being your own person and trying something different truly helps one "shine bright like a diamond".
