Tell us a little bit about how Frankies Bikinis began and came to be?
I’ve always been super picky about my bikinis – the fabric, the cut, and how they fit my body. So, my mom encouraged me to have a few custom-made and we started the trial and error process of creating the perfect bikini back in 2012. Now here we are, 5 years later – and I strive to make bikinis that everyone – and every body type – can feel confident and beautiful in.
Bali Body and Frankies Bikinis are a match made in tropical heaven. What is your go-to Bali Body product and why?
Honestly love the Coconut Lip Balm. It’s ultra-hydrating, smells AMAZING, and provides protection from the sun. What more could a gal ask for?
Whats in your beach bag?
What is your favourite Bali Body product to match with your favourite pair of Frankies Bikinis?
The ribbed Scarlett bikini in white goes great with the Bali Body Bronzing Lotion – seriously makes your tan pop!
What is your beach day/vacay beauty hack/tip?
Coconut oil for your skin and hair so that you don’t get dried out in the chlorine, salt water, and sun! Live by it.
Packing for a vacay, whats your must haves?
Bikinis (duh), my fav skincare products – which at the moment is Tatcha Rice Enzyme Powder, to get all the dead skin off pre and post-sunbathing, my BB Tanning Oils (the watermelon one smells good enough to eat), and a good lip balm / gloss.
