This week I visited the headquarters (a cute beach shack in Malibu) of Frankie’s Bikinis. At the young age of 18, the owner and designer of Frankie’s bikinis, Francesca Aiello, has successfully created her own swimwear company and designed her first swimwear collection, with the next collection not far away. Inspired by her travels and love for the ocean and surf, her bikinis are so unique and absolutely perfect. Not only was I able to get a glimpse of the upcoming collection and a tour of her creative offices, Francesca also showed off her favorite bikini while taking me on a trek to one of the prettiest beaches in Malibu. Hope you are as inspired as I am by this young bikini lover.
Read on for a behind the scenes look at Frankie’s Bikinis and Francesca’s design inspirations (more…)
Squats, in any shape or form, work your bum. Front, back, single leg, jumping, Bulgarian..there are a bunch of options. Do them, and don’t be scared to do them with heavy weights. (Be sure you know how to have good form first, s’il vous plait.)
For sprints. When you are using your legs to run as fast as you can, you also are firing your glutes so you can get more power. Let me illustrate: Google any Olympic sprinter, and check out their buns. Pretty amazing, I know. Swimwear lines should be sending these ladies all of their cheeky bottoms. Then go check out the marathon runners backsides…yeah, not so much. So do sprints, in a park, up a hill, around a track, with your dog. (Just remember to warm up and stretch thoroughly, por favor)
…and watch that bum grow, in a rather great way.

Just a few rules for this arm party:
1. The more the merrier
2. This isn’t a junior high dance – let your bracelets mingle amongst themselves
3. Get Cray (and by “cray”, we mean Crayon…every color if at all possible)
4. Spike the punch with some hardware, tassels, etc.
5. The more the merrier
