How to get ready for Bikini Season

Here in Hawaii, bikini season never truly stops. But that doesn’t mean we don’t fall into funks… You get busy and before you know it, you haven’t been to the beach in a month. And lets face it, sometimes you pick up your favorite bikini and it looks rather, shall we say, small. Pakaloha is here for you! Don’t feel comfortable in your bikini? Below are my favorite ways to get ready for bikini season: Turn on the song that makes you feel like you can do anything. Yes that one. The one that makes your attitude grow about 1000%. If you need a new one, I’m currently jamming out to Lizzo’s Good as Hell. Bonus round: windows down in the car, volume up. A round of car karaoke? Try a new color. Pakaloha has so many good options. Get something that makes you feel unique (I’ve been rocking lavender). Or try a new style. Changing up your look can really get you excited to get out there in your bikini. Make it an adventure. If you can, pick a new beach to hit up. I know, for a fact, that you have not been to every beach in your area. I’ve been an Oahu resident since birth and I have yet to meet the person who has gone to every beach here. That little beach access you see sometimes from the car? Yeah, go there. If it’s not right, there is probably another beach nearby you can hit up. Or it might be your new go-to spot. At the end of the day, you want to see a great sunset and get some sand in your hair. We all have moments of doubt and insecurity, but, much like tan lines and sunburn, those are temporary. What lasts forever are the memories we make at the beach. Just…promise me you’ll wear sunscreen.
