Being a few weeks into summer in the Northern Hemisphere (we are jealous over here in our Sydney headquarters!!) things are well and truly starting to warm up! Kulani Kinis are popping up all over the world and we are so amazed by the support you have shown us! We want to shout out a huge thank YOU!!!
We'd love to share a little of our world with you and thought we'd start by introducing one of our ambassadors who you'll recognise from our Instagram account (@kulanikinis). This gorgeous Aussie girl is hard to miss!
Name: Jess Brady
Instagram: @braady (go and check her out!)
Hometown: A tiny rural town called Kin Kin! It's in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland. Growing up, Jess' closest beach was at Noosa (about 50 minutes drive away) but she now lives on the beautiful Gold Coast (East Coast of Australia).
Where would we find you on the weekend? The BEACH!! (A girl after our own heart!)
Dream holiday destination? Bora Bora in one of those little rooms with the see-through floors on the water...one day! (#kulanikinilifegoals!!)
Ultimate boy or girl crush? My funny and smart engineer boyfriend Jason! And so many girl crushes! Amber Heard, Ruby Rose, GypsyOne & Unimerce just to name a few.
What's something you always take to the beach? A magazine! I love to read and flick through one while at the beach. I try not to stare at my phone too much because of the glare of the sun. (We hear you Jess!)
Describe your fashion style: Unique and whatever I'm feeling really. Usually comfort is my number one hahha! Style and comfort are important these days. I always consider how hot or cold it's going to be now that I'm older. When I was younger I didn't care at all, I'd wear mini skirts out clubbing in winter with sky-high high-heels!! Now I don't go clubbing, but if I did, I'd wear reasonable shoes and something warm (ditto for us Jess, our go to shoes are a pair of Havaianas!)
What's your favourite healthy snack and/or not so healthy? I love chocolate! But I melt up cacao butter, cacao powder, coconut oil and only a tiny bit of something to make it sweet like agave syrup. (Yum! This sounds delicious Jess, we're going to have try it!!) Also coconut anything is a winner for me – coconut yoghurt, coconut ice-cream, coconut chips! Lately my naughty treat is dried mango dusted with sugar – it's soooo moreish!
What's your favourite chillax activity or what do you do in your downtime? I love to watch DVDs with my boyfriend, go out for breakfast or coffee, play with my doggies (two Mini Foxies), online shop (ooh a fave of ours too!) and of course go to the beach!
What's your favourite past time to try and stay healthy and active? I'm a member of the Ashy Bines Transformation Centre on the Gold Coast, it's much more than a gym! It's a community with the support of like-minded females helping you to reach your goals of fitness and health. I attend a variety of classes including Pilates, Spin, Weights, Junk (boxing, circuits etc), Dance and whatever the trainers want to makeup. Yesterday my gym partner Katie and I completed a 1,000 calorie class which entails mostly cardio and you can't leave until you have burnt 1,000 calories! (Wow!! Sounds tough!)
What's your favourite Kulani Kinis piece and why? I can't choose a fave! (Hehe that's ok Jess, neither can we!!) I love all of the bright unique pieces Kulani Kinis has to offer and the way you can mix and match your exact style and colour theme. I don't know many, if any, other bikini brands that offer that. If they do, I bet they aren't in such amazing vibrant colours and fantastic cuts like the Kulani Kinis! (Aww thank you Jess...we're blushing now!)
We want to thank Jess for letting us share in a little of her world! She's an awesome girl with an amazing vibe! If you've got anything you'd love us to feature on our blog, please shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, comment below or fill out our contact form!
We hope you all have a beautiful day!
