Let’s face it–2020 has been one crazy roller coaster of events. One way that I was able to take my mind off stress was by visiting the Sierra mountain hot springs near me. Last week we took a girls trip to explore some springs and unwind. 


My friends and I first hit up Travertine Hot Springs, which features numerous pools with unbeatable views. I stashed two bikinis for this trip, because visiting multiple hot springs calls for a couple of bikinis 😉 I know you’ve probably seen my last post about Strange Bikinis which talked all about how this small business is making big waves in the swimwear industry with their sustainable efforts. I am wearing the Arnica top and theSoquel french cut bottoms.


After a few hours of unwinding, we decided to head to another location–Buckeye Hot springs. This spring is the perfect place to soak–it is located under a small waterfall which runs right into the hot pool. One of my favorite parts about this pool is that it’s located right along the river. If you’re brave enough, take a dip. It is SO refreshing after soaking in this pool. In these shots I am wearing theFrolic Square Neck top andHannah Bikini bottoms

by Ali Conway December 08, 2020

One of the best ways to extend the life of your bathing suit is by storing it properly when you're not wearing it; this preserves the shape, color, and elasticity of the bathing suit. Proper storage is especially important if you don't plan on wearing your suit for several weeks at a time. But no matter how long it will be unused, your suit will hold up much better by following a few simple practices...
