sand kicking

Topshop canvas bag filled with water, SPF spray, frisbee and fruit….
The beige beaded bracelet to the left I bought from a beach vendor walking around – (it’s really a necklace)…
Took random shots of seagulls. Loved this one. Reminds me of summer.
The water was bloody freezing. For me, I have to just jump in or I wont bother.
Life guard over load. Paula this one’s for you. Next time you are here, faint in front of them will you?

The photographer responsible for my blog pics. The boyfriend, Michael…

Bikini: Victoria Secret. Denim vest: Levis (thrifted), Chuck Taylors: DIY studded. Shades: Ray Ban. Fedora: New Orleans street vendor. Jewellery: T&V, LF shop, street vendors. Nail polish: Sea Breeze by Essie
So the boyfriend and I hit the beach today. Believe it or not it’s my first time walking in sand this year.
We arrived around lunch and stayed for a few hours, me laying on my San Diego beach towel (souvenir from a west coast trip) snapping shots of seagulls and all sorts.
Have you guys hit the beaches a lot so far?

    Hi, love the blog! Just wondering if you could point me the direction where to buy studs and how to put them on. That would be great, thanks!

    love your bikini! Wow, I wish I could have such an amazing body as you! ^^

  8. Lady Bug says:

    If I pretend to faint in front of them, they would just rollllllll me back into the sea mistaking me for a whale. Or knowing my luck, it would be the one closest to the flag who would rush to give me mouth to mouth…. but worth the risk tho’ ;o) Love youxx

    p.s Bikini is simply stunning! The white on you looks so fresh.

  9. Lady Bug says:

    Oh, that looks so fun! The only water I have access to is that of the (brownish) Ohio River–not exactly beachy.

    But I didn’t email you about the studs hun! I found your blog just a few days ago. A link would be appreciated about that if you’ve answered it before. I love it! 🙂

  24. Karen says:

    Lemon Curry – (I fancy an Indian every time I read that name), I did the studs by just using an exactor knife to make two slits in the fabric, then push the teeth of the studs through the holes and then bend the teeth into place with pliars.

    You can get the studs in bags from or ebay : )

  25. Fabulous Fashion Finds says:

    You are looking hot…..If you look this hot in a bathing suit, you will pretty much look hot in everything.
