When it comes to blog inspo, it doesn’t get much more aspirational than travel blogging. Those jet setters aren’t just trailblazing trends – they’re blazing trails at 30,000ft, racking up air miles and price tags, and packing wanderlust like an expertly curated suitcase. Beach-dwelling in the name of your career aint’ easy, but we know one babe who does it like a pro. Meet Anouska.
If there’s one thing you can trust a nomadic fashion lover like Anouska with, it’s swimwear selection. This season, Anouska nailed it with our white, draped-front swimsuit AND our scalloped-edge bikini – leaving us with a serious case of swimwear envy. If you’re in the market for a bit of pool-ready glamour (oh hey, summer hols), we’ve got some tips and tricks from the babe herself to set you in the right direction.

What made you choose this white swimsuit?
I'm a massive fan of swimsuits, when I first laid my eyes on this one I knew I had to have it. It's simple, classy, and I just love the amazing shape.
What are your 5 beach bag essentials?
Sunscreen, oversized sunglasses, lip balm, earphones, my camera and my iPhone. All I ever need!
What are your top beach beauty tips?
Keep skin, body, and lips hydrated by drinking lots of water. Apply sunscreen every time you come out of the water. I also have a tip for cute, 'beachy' waves - twist damp hair into two little buns, and then take them out before your hair dries completely. Voila!
What are your top swimsuit tips?
It all depends on the look you want to go for. I think the fit is most important, don't wear anything too big or too small! When it comes to colour, I think darker skin looks fantastic in deep blues, bright reds and whites, and paler skin looks beautiful in yellow and pastel shades.
Bikini top €5, bikini bottoms €6
What made you choose our black bikini?
When it comes to bikinis you can never go wrong with simplicity - but then again a beautiful back detail is always welcom. I knew this one would look so great on the beach, and it would also add a nice touch under a tank top.
