#SWELLivin

swell_fresh-air650
You know the saying, “I need some air”. Well, odds are, you really do. Humans are made to love being outside. Just think of how great you feel after going for a walk, taking a nap in a park, reading a book under a tree, a day at the beach (that’s a no brainer), eating outside, or switching up things so your workout is outside. Fresh air is kind of sweet like that. It’s an instant mood lifter.

So, make it a point to go get some fresh air, not just if you are feeling sick or have the spins, but as a daily way to make your overall well being better. Rain or shine, beach or no beach. Fresh air is fresh air. So get out from behind a screen, put that phone down, and go get some.

Brand Spotlight: Boys + Arrows Interview & SWELL Selects with Boys + Arrows Designer, Meagan Scott

IMG_4316
Not only do we heart Boys + Arrows outlaw/hippie-chic bikinis, but after chatting with Boys + Arrows designer, Meagan Scott (half of the sister-duo behind the free-spirited brand) we most-definitely would love to chill with her poolside and/or tag along on any of her crazy adventures around the world. We would wholeheartedly explore untamed jungles or kick back on deserted beaches with this chica, espesh when the must-haves in her beach bag include an endless supply of music and margarita ingredients.
