New Haircut // How to get a hairdresser to do what you want

Hello again my lovelies. Happy Friday to you all!

I mentioned in a couple of my last posts that I was going to get my hair cut in order to pull myself out of the style rut I was in. And boy oh boy did it work! I feel fabulous but at the same time I know how daunting the act of entrusting your locks to the hands of a maniac with scissors can be. We all know the story with the majority of hairdressers ...



I hear you, I hear you. I also had the added task of finding a hairdresser who spoke good enough English to understand that I want a nice hairstyle not a buzzcut. I live in the Netherlands in Maastricht and I do not speak Dutch. So I got a recommendation from my friend to check out Jason Marmann, booked an appointment and hauled my ass over there this afternoon.

I went in mildly terrified and was greeted warmly. Immediately Jason came over and asked what he could do for me and luckily I came prepared... 

Tip: Prepare a photo or photo collage of inspiration for them to get an idea of what you're after. Then also ask for their advice and their expert opinion. Get them to talk you through their plans following what you've said you're after and let them know what you are/are not comfortable with. 

I showed Jason this collage I made of Alexis Ren's hair from all different angles and view points (feel free to take this photo and use it yourself). I am extremely inspired by her hair right now and wanted a version that would suit me and not lose it's style/shape over time. 


I then stated that I also wanted to be able to put my hair up in a ponytail so layers that are too short would be a nuisance and also disclosed that, while I like my ears, they stick out so if the layers were too short they would poke through. I also mentioned key words such as 'long, shaggy layers" "face framing" and "beachy" and also asked him to make it suit my face shape. He got what I said instantly and sent me to get my hair washed which was great. 

After a good wash he got to work. I had hair half way down my back which was a blunt cut. No layers or face framing to speak of. He cut about an inch or so off to begin with and told me that would be the longest length at the back. I was prepared for shorter so this was good. Then he did the layers. 

One hair disclaimer is that I have A LOT of hair. I mean it. The guy who washed my hair said "hey, you have a lot of hair" then Jason stated "wow, fantastic hair". Over the course of an hour he went from "okay, this is a lot of hair" to "i'm sorry but you have too much hair". All this I know because it is a huge trial trying to brush it every day. Normally I don't bother but shh. 

He decided to use one of these bad boys:


Which is a hair thinning blade. Only from the lengths from the ends of my ear down as requested to avoid a peeping ear situation. This meant that my hair has more volume at the roots and actually gets some movement at the bottom. (Normally my hair just hangs there, heavy and lanky). My hair is much lighter now but at the roots still packs a punch. 

He then moved to the front of my head and did the framing pieces and made sure they could still be tucked behind my ears and that the layers gradually got longer around my face so it wasn't a chunky curtain side fringe deal. 

The end result is:


If you excuse my derp face! 

I am extremely happy with it. Lots of layers and bouncy movement and just the perfect interpretation of what I showed him. Very pleased and perfect for growing out and still looking stylish too!

If you're around Maastricht and want an awesome cut (and awesome colour work too) please check out Jason Marmann and follow the link to their Facebook page here . You can also say that I (Nisha) sent you in order to get 10% off your service. 

Have a great weekend guys!

Wish List #1 // More Bikini Porn

Hi there gals, 

Been neglecting all areas of my social media lately due to an internet issue but soon hopefully it will all be sorted out! Today I am typing away at Uni in our attic library with a blustery wind outside, so once again I am dreaming of warmer weather and bluer skies. I have, however, got my hair appointment booked for Friday afternoon, as per my last post, which will make for a interesting, and hopefully helpful, blog post. 

Today I thought I would show you what has been on my mind lately in the form of a bikini wish list for a short and sweet one today. 

The first ‘kini to make my list is one which has ended up in my online shopping basket more times than I can count. It is this beauty from Coulbourne, an LA based company which sports some to-die-for swimmers. 
(Coulbourne ‘Bond’ top $76 and bottom $72 - Model is Alexis Ren, photo from Alexis Ren’s Instagram) 

Coulbourne is the brain child of founder Rocky Coulbourne who, in his day-dreams of the “perfect” girl, created a line of attire that this mystical creature would, one day, wear. Since their inception they have narrowed their sights on classic modern day bikinis that could be worn on any beach in the world. In Rocky’s own words “I may not ever find that girl, but my creations made for her will live on, in each and every Coulbourne piece”. Here’s hoping he finds her because she has some gorgeous bikinis to wear. I do think I will take the plunge and buy this swimsuit. I’m not necessarily the posh “little-black-dress” kind of girl but I am for sure the little-black-bikini kind, and this one is bound to make you feel like a million bucks. 

Number two on my want list is this little number from Kiini. 

(Source: Lyst.com)

Apparently conceived during travels across the world to find beautiful beaches, this bikini is a real integration of a modern yet bohemian look that reflects it’s inspirations of beautiful beach life with the urban vibes of New York City, the birthplace of Kiini. 

I adore the crochet work mixed with the bold colours which really create a unique style. Kiini has been seen on celebrities such as Cara Delevingne which is how I came to hear about this amazing bikini. 

A whole set will bring you back around $300 though but oh well. A girl can dream. 

Lastly on my mind I have been dreaming of Acacia swimwear. Specifically this set and even more specifically the Andy top style. 
(Source: wheretoget.com )

Again with the crochet I know, once I am hooked on a style I can’t seem to shake it. 

Acacia is the epitome of dreamy swimwear that mixes boho styles with effortless sophistication and femininity seamlessly. Designed by Naomi Newirth and Lyndie Irons who share a love of beaches, holiday lifestyle and a thirst for travelling this swimwear brand is adored by many. 

Most likely all of you will have heard of Acacia so I won’t continue to bang on about them as I am sure you guys already know. But my dream one day is to be on a beach in Hawaii wearing Acacia. Again, a girl can dream. 


That’s all for todays post guys, see you in my next post on hair cuts!

Stuck in a clothing rut? Here's what to do! // Style Warrior

Hello hello hello my lovelies!

I have been feeling kinda down and emotional recently and at first I had no idea why. But then, I took a few steps back and analysed why I'm feeling unhappy and I realised in an instant. 

Recently I have been detaching myself from some rough relationships with people in my life that were making me unhappy and at the moment I am in limbo. Free fall. Hurtling towards the ground with no direction or safety net aside from my boyfriend. Don't get me wrong because he is lovely but everyone needs their own friends. 

When I am in free fall it's not long before something else can join the party of going downhill. When one side of your life becomes unstable other things can detach and for me it was my self-confidence. I am suddenly in a complete rut with how I look and I feel like I have lost myself a little. 

For the past week I have worn the same outfit which is currently the only one I like. Skinny jeans and a baggy jumper. And I pride myself on being relatively fashion forward!? It's been ridiculous. I'm confident about my body but I have no idea how to dress it or how to do by boring flat hair. 

If you know what I am feeling and want some tips for how to get out of this rut, then here are some of the steps I took today and I feel immensely better!

1. Go through your entire wardrobe! 

I know you must be thinking 'how cliche this list will be' and I get that but seriously if you're telling yourself and everyone you have nothing to wear then you sure as hell have stuff to donate. This way you wont get caught resorting back to the same outfits that make you feel kinda crappy. 
When you go through it create three piles of 'bin' 'donate' 'keep' and be ruthless! Be honest with your style and keep timeless pieces, not things you are hoping will come back into trend. 


Once you have cleared some space in your wardrobe you can actually see what you are lacking or what you feel that you really need. Even with a small collection of clothes, with the right pieces you can create an endless selection of outfits that all make you feel great. 

2. Find some inspiration!

This point I cannot stress enough. Find some inspiration and spend a long time looking. For the past few weeks I have typed a number of different key words into google images and tumblr to find some style inspiration. If you have a celebrity crush, doubtless someone on tumblr will have a fan page dedicated to that person full of style tips and outfit ideas. For me at the moment my inspiration is Alexis Ren. If you have not heard of her first of all where have you been? and secondly here is an example photo of her


She is very beachy, model off duty and effortlessly cool. When I want more style inspo I will type her name into tumblr and scroll for hours. It makes me feel a bit better that this style is so easily achievable and replicable. 

Also Youtubers are BRILLIANT inspo. My fav is Sunbeamsjess. She's British, funny and her style is to die for. 

  
Have fun binge watching her videos! 

3. Take a break from your current surroundings!

If you're lucky and can afford to take the time out of your normal schedule, even if it's just a weekend or a day, take a break and go somewhere new because it is one of the most effective ways to break a rut. Especially if you go somewhere interesting and arty you are bound to get inspired. I am actually going to Amsterdam in a week for 3 nights which I will do a blog post on. 
Amsterdam is one of the fashion capitals of the world and I am definitely planning to do some shopping. To my dear bank account I apologise in advance. 

Taking a break will ensure that you are around different people, breathing a different air and seeing different things and will make you feel a lot better. I know I always crave something new when I am feeling down.  



4. Get a hair cut!

It may seem silly but there is nothing like getting a couple centimetres cut off your 'do to make you feel brand new. I am actually booking in to get an actual style cut into my hair. After getting a shoulder length blunt cut in April, I am currently sporting a grown out non-hairstyle. I am bored, my hair is flat and kinda horrible actually. So I will soon be sporting a classic long layers with face framing look which I am excited about. 



As I stated previously I will do a post on Amsterdam because it looks like it's going to be one of the best trips of my life. It is in celebration of a year with my boyfriend which is coming up mid-February and we leave for Dam on the 7th. As a special treat to ourselves we've booked a beautiful AirB&B which looks absolutely stunning and are planning lovely strolls along canals, delicious dinners and maybe a bit of shopping on my part too. 
I also think I'll do a before and after hair cut blog post with info on how to go about getting the cut you want, finding inspiration and stuff like that. 

Aside from that final note I hope you all are having a lovely weekend!

What convinced me to go vegan? // a Personal Chat

Hello there folks,

I feel so much more free today. After quite a bit of stress over a final debate on Genocide conventions, the debate is successfully over. I can now concentrate again on my journey to better myself in terms of health and mindset for a while until my next classes start. With that comes some discussion on Veganism.

I apologise to those of you who are not interested in this lifestyle you are welcome to leave and come back for another post :) no judgement this is a positive space.

For those of you who are now still here and still reading I am happy to have you. I get many questions from friends, family and people who are just plain interested about my new lifestyle and the main one is "what convinced you eventually?" To that I say, "good question! Let me tell you." So, this post is gonna be full of resources I watched, read and then a little bit of a personal moment that eventually tipped me into this newfound respect for what I put in my body.

First a bit of background:

1. I used to hate vegetarians. Flat out. Didn't even know about vegans but vegetarians used to grind my gears. I just could not fathom why someone could be so picky with food. I was already a relatively fussy eater so maybe I just couldn't imagine someone deliberately choosing to be fussy. I don't know but I was very uneducated about veggies.
2. I have never been fat and never had an eating disorder of any kind. Have always just been skinny and ate a typical English diet.

So, you could say I go to a very liberal university. I even study Liberal Arts and Sciences, you can't get much more liberal than that! But before going here I had no idea it would affect my personal choices that much. When I first got here I had never come across certain things like Veganism and really had limited knowledge on sustainability but I was surrounded by individuals who had and I was very impressed. I quickly became vegetarian and following that have been researching for hours on end on why I should go vegan. Obviously my first port of call was movies and here are some of my favs.

My favourite vegan documentaries: 


  1. Cowspiracy- I know, you've heard this one before but I really urge you to watch it. It's on Netflix which I know you all have and the best part is that it doesn't yell at you for not being vegan at all. It doesn't preach it actually aims it's attacks at the system we live under and questions why if we know what is causing environmental destruction then why not change. 

  2. Food Inc- Another Netflix one! This one doesn't necessarily preach Veganism at all but is important for anyone to watch. It discusses how what we eat is now so industrialised to the point where there are many flaws with our system. It tells of how the story of Old McDonald is indeed a lie we tell ourselves in order to cope with what we are doing. 
  3. Forks over Knives- This one actually goes in depth on the health of the typical western diet versus the health of a vegan diet and makes some very good points for those that have questions over just how healthy the western diet is. With rising rates of diabetes and heart problems, one of the main killers we are facing is actually our diet which is a scary thought. This is on Netflix too. 
  4. Earthlings- I am mentioning this one purely because I believe it is important to see and be aware and educated about what goes on behind the closed doors of slaughter houses and many more organisations that entail the exploitation of animals. It is, however, EXTREMELY upsetting. The first time I watched it I got 20 mins in, the second time I got 30 mins in. It is hard work but I had to at least try. You can find this on youtube. 
Vegan Youtubers/Videos:

One of the main things that really convinced me were Youtubers. 
The first of which being Freelee the Banana girl. Yes she is controversial but she has a lot of knowledge on the topic of Veganism and some really powerful videos. 
You can find her channel here --> Freelee

The second Youtube thing I want to show you is this video called 101 reasons to go Vegan. Well it doesn't list 101 it's just a really nice sounding guy chatting about how it's just natural that we follow a vegan lifestyle. He made some really convincing arguments which I really appreciated.  
Find the link here---> 101 reasons to go vegan

And lastly, this video entitled seaspiracy which made convincing arguments for not eating fish ---> seaspiracy 


Lastly a little personal bit:

The last thing that tipped me into Veganism was going to the doctors for a full check up after being curious. I was told my cervix looked red and sponge like. I was frightened but tests were sent off and there was no sign of cancerous or pre-cancerous cells present. I did a course of antibiotics in case of infection and afterwards found there was no infection. Lastly I was told that as a result of being on the pill my cervix had eroded slightly. I have now come off the pill and am using a diaphragm instead because I have now sworn off hormones. 
In addition to coming off birth control I decided my body was in dire need of healing and so I am finally doing just that. Red meat especially and dairy can be very inflammatory for the body so this detox is well needed. I'll be eating in abundance, but eating nutrient rich foods. 

Well there you have my answer to what convinced me personally to go vegan. Please share with me any other resources or documentaries you like because I would love to have more in my arsenal! 

Hope you have a lovely day!

Motivational Monday // The "real woman" debate

After writing last week's motivational Monday instalment I felt as though I had barely scratched the surface of the multifaceted problem that is todays perception of female body image. I felt that at least another post was required to cover the issue and perhaps there will be more to follow. This weeks instalment will cover the rise of the "real woman" and the damaging effects this has to our society. 

The backlash against thin:

Last week I discussed briefly how very recently the IN thing was thin. With Kate Moss proclaiming her famous mantra "nothing tastes as good as skinny feels" many girls were having to cope with unhealthy thoughts encouraging disordered eating; and with larger women being pushed to the sidelines of the beauty spectrum receiving hurtful comments implying their beauty was tied to their size – it is no wonder that there was a backlash! 

The backlash is shown below: 




I applaud any woman that is happy to be the size she is. Good for you. What I will not applaud is 1. A woman who had to tear other women down in order to feel good about herself. 2. A woman who bases her self-worth, the worth of others and someone's ability to be sexy on looks and male opinion alone. This is an extremely damaging idea to be putting out. 

Why is this damaging:

For one thing, these "inspirational" quotes completely exclude the fact that many women are in fact not bothered by whether men find them sexy at all, because they are attracted to women. 
Secondly, why try extremely hard to change your body shape for someone who seems to be a bit of an arse anyway. Do not put yourself through calorie restriction because some guy said he likes skinny women and do not push yourself through extremes because some guy said he wanted your ass to be fatter. The main thing here is YOU DO YOU. 

We need to stop pretending that everybody shares the same body type. Not every woman can have big breasts or can have a thigh gap. Sexy comes in all shapes and sizes. 

Also one more point, since when did small boobs become no boobs? That rhetoric is really getting old. Sure, some women have a very flat chest. Some women have small boobs, some medium, some large. When you look at bikini hauls on youtube you have so many small breasted girls looking embarrassed as they tell the camera they aren't "gifted" in the chest area. It breaks my heart that we have been brought up feeling ashamed to have smaller boobs. Or even on the other end of the spectrum that some women were embarrassed to have larger boobs. 

Now, since small boobed ladies are feeling the pressure they lash out at women with larger boobs. 


Come on. This girl on girl attack is crazy. 

Every woman is a real woman. No matter what her size is. 

My experience:

As someone who went through puberty little by little in many stages I experienced a lot of hate regarding my body shape. The first thing that came in for me was a defined waist. I got some little hips before anything else happened. 

Secondly I got tiny pair of boobs ever so slowly getting proportionally bigger but I am definitely small chested. I was told at 12 I was flat chested and that I should stuff my bra. I was mortified. I thought people had noticed my secret of having a size A chest and thought the whole school would know. All the cool kids were already wearing bras and I was shrinking back in my vest. So to combat this minor bullying, me and a friend at the time did everything we could to fake these desired curves at the age of 13 or so. 
We bought push up bra after push up bra spending our pocket money in 'La Senza'. There is no shame in buying these, I still have one in my drawer because in some of my clothes I prefer the look of some boost but I was 13 and 14 only wearing these because I hated my chest. I didn't even like them! They became uncomfortable after a while of wearing them and were incredibly obvious to the girls in the changing rooms. 

I always had scrawny legs too. I used to wear leggings under my school trousers to look like I was slightly more filled out. I wasn't anorexic or cutting calories like you may be thinking. I was just young and not fully developed yet, competing with girls who were already done with their puberty run. Eating twice as much as I normally would to try and gain weight did nothing. 

It was only when I got to 16/17 that I started to love my body. I began to fill out more over time. There were many things I didn't understand before, that being petite I would never have some of the body types I idolised. But now I'm older I realise that even people older than me don't understand body types. Curvy can come in many sizes much like athletic body types come in many sizes. I am petite and very slender but I am relatively curvy for someone my size. I have a butt and my 30C boobs are all present and correct. More importantly I am getting healthier. I am 19 now and exercise is becoming more a part of my life. I love the feeling of my body getting stronger. 


Confidence:

From what I remember the summer time was the worst for my body confidence. Beach and pool parties are frequent and with light bullying being the norm I hated the mandatory bikini uniform. Thankfully, we are in a time where different bikini brands cater to different shapes of women. I have a few tips for those of you that are dreading the summer season!

The main tips I can give you for feeling confident in your bikini is:
Know your dimensions. Many of the great brands are online which makes getting the right size tricky and lying to yourself about your dimensions won't help you. Get the right size and it'll look better on you.
Look at different styles of bikinis. Different styles suit different shapes! have a bit of a look around on Instagram or tumblr or google images and find pictures of women who have similar body types and what bikinis looked great on them. It'll really help you visualise your own body in that bikini. 
Remember, everyone has their own body hangups.  That girl that picked on your thighs probably hates her stomach. Or the one who mocked your large chest hates her arms. If you remember that then you may be able to shake off the worst of the comments. Obviously sometimes they may hit a nerve and it can be really hard to ignore, but the bigger person wouldn't attack someone else's body image.

Body confidence can be hard to learn but in my eyes the sexiest thing a woman can have is confidence in herself. It'll take time but it will be worth it and half the battle is not neglecting your inside. Think positive thoughts, eat your 5 a day, do some light exercise and the benefits will shine out of your skin. 

Have a happy week all of you!

Cheap Student Eats #1 - Multi-Veg Pasta // Vegan, Healthy, Easy

Hi again everyone, 

So if you're anything like me and have spent (and will continue to spend) an awful lot on some 'make-your-butt-perfect' bikini bottoms; then you will be wondering how on earth you'll be able to afford to eat some good, healthy food from now on. 

I know, I know, you told yourself you'd eat nothing but baked beans and instant noodles from now on to save those pennies but we both know that is not realistic. You'll get bored, you'll get hungry and you'll get so unhealthy. You're never gonna get that awesome beach bod worthy of said 'kini bottoms by eating cheap crap now are you? 

I am also a relatively new vegan and so I gotta get those veggies and carbs in to feel satiated and happy. However, even if you aren't vegan give this recipe a try because why the hell not :) #eatyourveggies 

This very easy recipe came about when I hosted my friends last night for dinner. I didn't know what to make so I decided on a multiveg pasta. Decided being the operative word as these were the only ingredients I had pretty much...

Tip: To eat cheap as a vegan you gotta eat seasonally. - I had some winter veg in my fridge to get eating and this is what I did:

You will need:
- Pasta (check whether it has egg in it)
- 2 onions
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 Courgette (zucchini to some of you)
- 2 medium carrots
- Mushrooms (loads of the buggers, they shrink down so much) 
- 2 handfuls of string beans 
- 1 400g carton of Passata (or tin tomatoes) 
- herbs to taste (basil, oregano)

  1. Right, you'll wanna wash and then chop all your veg up fairly small. Especially the carrots and courgette because it'll take time to cook. Smaller = faster to cook. Leave the pasta till the sauce is cooked!
  2. Fry the onion in a big saucepan with some oil until soft and translucent then add the garlic. 
  3. Now add your courgette and carrot with half a cup of water to prevent sticking and help them to cook faster. Add some salt and pepper at this point too. Keep the veg moving in the pan and cook for 5 mins. 
  4. Add the mushrooms. It will look like A LOT. Stir it in with the rest and wait a short while for it to reduce and shrink down. You will be surprised! 
  5. Now add the beans. again wait a little while after stirring in, the mushrooms will continue to get smaller. 
  6. You will notice the mixture will release a lot of fluid. You can either keep it in (it's very healthy) or just pour a little out if you'd rather have a thicker sauce.
  7. Now add the passata and stir in. At this point if you had fresh tomatoes you could add them but I didn't. 
  8. Add some herbs. I added basil and oregano then left it to simmer on a low heat. 
  9. Now cook your pasta in another saucepan and serve.  
There you have it: cheap, easy, vegan and extremely healthy. Saving up for another bikini splurge really wont be too hard now. 

 -do excuse the yellow lighting-

This recipe would also be fantastic with other veg in it too such as celery, egg plant or even add some lentils or kidney beans for extra protein. It also makes a fairly large amount which is perfect to save and reheat the next day for lunch! 

I hope you enjoy this recipe and let me know in the comments if you tried it. You can even tweet me a pic of your version at @GuavaGirly or tag me on Insta at @guavagirlie because I would love to see your pics. 

Happy cooking!

Kokoh Bikini Review// My New Bikini bottoms

Hello there!

I know, kinda long time no type. I do, however, have my reasons involving university work load which I will not bore you with.

Far more exciting than my tedious study schedule is a delivery that arrived for me yesterday morning all packaged up in a beautiful sky blue envelope with the words 'Kokoh Bikini' written on them in white.

So here it is: My Kokoh Review and a look at the bikini bottoms I ordered from them.

I firstly want to just say how brilliant the ordering and delivery service is. When you order you get the opportunity to note down your Instagram name and once it is shipped they'll post a picture of the exact product you ordered. This I thought was a really lovely touch.



I was also so pleased at how fast they arrived. With the scheduled delivery drop being the 25th of January, I already thought that was pretty quick. It actually took a mere 5 days from ordering to actually getting my order. I don't even live in AUS! I live in NL as a student right now so that is damn fast in my book. It is also fully tracked so you get a real peace of mind while ordering with them.

So when I opened the gorgeous blue packaging and delved in I found my bottoms in this cute little baggie...


Aaaannndd inside were these gorgeous puppies ...



I know, I know. Stunning, right?

As you may be able to tell pattern placement varies on these bikini bottoms, but that just adds to how unique they are!

They also come with a beautiful postcard which doubles up as the returns form in the unlikely event that you don't like them. I would show you it but it is up on my wall as we speak.

I wont be trying them on for you guys just yet -- for a few different reasons (ie it's bloody cold, my butt is not quite as perkalicious as desired etc) but the biggest reason being that eventually I will do a huge try on bikini collection. What I will say is that these are gorgeous! I honestly have never felt a softer material of bikini bottom before and when I put them on it feels like silk is gracing my butt cheeks.

Oh yeah and these bad boys are definitely cheeky. Not thong-like per say but some cheekage is definitely on show.  In a V good way.

These are the Kaleidoscopic mandala scrunchies. They also have another cheeky version with braided sides and then a Hawaiian cut also if you're that way inclined. The scrunchies are probably the most full cover they get at Kokoh so I would say they are a good "beginner" cheeky cut with the relatively thick sides to make sure they stay put.

The reverse side is a white and yellow horizontal stripe but in all honestly, why wear the stripe side when you have a rainbow mandala print to wear?!

In terms of the sizing they fit me perfectly! - and I got a S. I range from a UK4 to a UK6 in bottoms but on average I more or less always come out as a 6. I would say that those who are an 8 could get an S too. If you are smaller than a 6 I would contact them with your dimensions and query it or even ask on Instagram and you're sure to get an answer! Their sizes range from an S-L covering a 6-14, these bottoms are very stretchy for comfort so they do cover a fair variety of sizes.

These amazing bottoms didn't come cheap as they were AUS $79 which is a lot to spend on one bikini piece. While it is a hella lot I must say that now I have them the quality is crazy good. It's like not wearing anything. Seriously. It feels like being butt naked. And no other bikini bottom has flattered my butt more (more about flattering shapes in an upcoming post). These bottoms make it look like even the least curviest of us have done their squats.

I would say if you have the money to spend and you either live by the beach or tend to go on a lot of holidays, then go for it and you wont regret it! I never thought I would say AUS $79 bikini bottoms are worth it, but to hell with it these ones really are.

You can check out their other bikini styles at their website here
And you should also go and follow their Insta page here

Comment below if you also love Kokoh and let me know what your fav style of theirs is! Also tell me what other brands I can check out are.

Enjoy your weekend my lovelies.
