The Tropics Beckon

The Tropics Beckon

The words “winter warmer” gather new meaning when it comes to heading North to Port Douglas and this is exactly what our little swimwear brand needed - An injection of Vitamin Sea! The tropical town of Port Douglas does not disappoint an hour north on a windy but well-maintained coastal road with beautiful views as the rainforest meets the reef. We took our place amongst the stallholders at 6am on Sunday morning, beside the gorgeous Cindy from Mama&Boo Collective.

After Swim Spray to Wash Away the Chlorine

I remember when our pool would go green and my dad had a little chemical testing kit, to take a sample of pool water and add drops of solution to it and then check the colour change against a chart. All very white coat! We would stand around and then the filters would be pumped, and scoops of powder added to the water. We were then told that we would have to wait to swim! Very disappointing for a 7 year old. Chlorine can cause the children’s sensitive skin to itch especially if they have allergies and eczema. But sometimes...
