As someone who has got more than her fair share of curves post children I am thrilled to have discovered Lilly + Lime! Swimwear that is stylish and supportive… yes please. Now I will be honest it has taken me, oh I don’t know 32 years to feel comfortable in my own skin. Ok maybe not 32 years… but I am going to say a good 20 years. I am finally ready to embrace ze curves that ‘make me me’ and make me fabulous if I do say so myself. I am so stoked to have some Lilly + Lime in my life. Today we’re chatting with Emma & Amy co-founders of Lilly + Lime; about all things swimwear, curves, embracing your body and a few cheeky Friday afternoon topics.
The weekend is almost here! And to celebrate, we’ve put together the ultimate picnic must-have checklist to ensure you’ve got everything you need for the most stylish picnic of them all.
First up, you need a carry-all picnic basket and bright picnic rug. We’re loving this superb basket bag by The Market Basket Co. for its stylish shape and sturdy functionality. When paired with this gelato-coloured picnic rug by MOZI, the foundations of a good picnic are set.
As Brisbabes we know the power of the Queensland sun is unrelenting (yes even in Spring), so this wide brim hat, sunglasses and natural sunscreen combo is essential. I’m swooning over the Lack of Color range of fedoras and wide brim felt hats!
To top it all off, you need some tasty drinks (cider or sangria is our go-to) and a great food spread (fruit, sweets, baked goods, dips), mason jars and fabulous plates, a polaroid to capture everything and a selection of magazines to flick through when siesta time lolls around. Sweet wheels are an added bonus!
Not sure where to go? Head to one of our top 27 picnic spots and lookouts in Brisbane once you’ve packed your bag of goodies. Kangaroo Point, Roma Street Parklands, City Botanic Gardens, New Farm Park, the Wynnum/Manly Foreshore, Bulimba…. you name it, we’ve thought of picnic-ing there!
