Hola all you lovely readers out there! I have heard that a few places more north on our dear planet are not having a very nice spring.....in our Chicago Swish Headquarters spring has definitely not sprung. In the ever hot Mayan Riviera our second Swish home, spring has sprung a little too violently.....the spring has become more of a scorch!
Anyway, wether you are scorching or freezing it is Spring and as such we here at Swish decided to do a Spring Swish Shoot in some of our brightest flirtiest ONE Line Items and some of our soon to be released (yes, I know we always say this but they will be out this summer 100%) Swish bikinis, http://swishsuits.com/product-category/womens-exercise-clothes/!
We had the great pleasure of partnering up for this spring shoot with Giella Cosmetics, the amazing new custom blend cosmetics company, http://www.giella.com/. Giella Representative for the Riviera Maya, Martina Carrino, is a personal friend of mine and the CEO at The Best Moments, an amazing wedding planning company here in Playa del Carmen, https://www.facebook.com/TheBestMomentsWeddings. It was to date our easiest and most laid back photo shoot ever thanks to Marina and crew!
We at Swish are officially hooked on Giella! This makeup is not only custom blended to your own skin but it also is super light weight and durable, aka perfect for the beach! Or, well the beach lounge ;). All Giella makeup we used was perfect for Swish, it gave our models a nice natural look that was professional but not overdone.
The shoot started at 5:30 am, with us all meeting in Marina's gorgeous flat in Playacar. I am pretty sure most of the success of the shoot can be attributed to Alex Corbanezi, a sweet and super talented makeup artist from Brazil.

We got some great beachy spring shots of Swish's ONE Line!
Spring Swish Bliss!
Swish ONE Line Crop Top in Flirty Pink, the perfect top for your Spring exercise!
I was also super lucky to have my beautiful and talented boyfriend, Alex Nava, wake up at 5 am, drive us around, video the entire experience, and then put everything together in post production to produce a killer video for our new Kickstarter campaign (we will keep you posted, we are launching next month)! Gracias guapo!
Sooooo.......bikinis anyone? You amazing Swish followers have been after us for while to release our sporty/sexy/eco bikinis and they are coming, they are coming! Promise! These bikinis are great for the girl that needs something sexy and high performance rolled into one suit. Something with a great flattering cut that is also perfect to throw a wetsuit over and jump in the surf. For those you (like myself for soooo many years) that are unable to find anything but the annoying and never flattering full bottom bikinis, despair no longer! Your bum will celebrate :)!
Swish Suits Bikinis Out Summer 2013!
All in all, I have to admit I am sort of obsessed with photo shoots! In general I love the pics, the posing, the makeup.....catching it all Swished up in a moment. As well, we here at Swish use our friends as models. There is never a deficit of fit pro-athlete girls on the Swish Team! For example, two of the models we used in this shoot are yoga instructors here in Playa.
All in all.....enjoy the beachy spring shots even if you are fighting a cold northern spring, check out Giella Cosmetics (you will be glad you did) www.giella.com, and stay tuned and with credit card in hand to get your Swish Bikini this summer!
