Recently I chatted with the babes from A Bikini A Day. If you don’t know who they are, then you obviously don’t have Instagram.

Or you’ve been living under a rock.

Not only is this hottie twosome super popular on Insty-Winsty, they’re also killing it in the business world: they’ve built a brand. Any girl that’s sexy & smart, is a real dime in my book.

Check these sizzling sex kittens out below:

+ Introduce yourselves:

ABAD: Our names are Natasha Oakley & Devin Brugman and we’re the creators of A Bikini A Day. Read our history here.

+ A Bikini A Day means:

ABAD: The name A Bikini A Day literally describes what the page is all about- each day we upload a photo of a new bikini.

Both of us wanted to create a place where all the bikini lovers of the world can come together to obsess over bikinis everyday. We feel as though a bikini is more than just a swimsuit to wear at the beach, the bikini embodies a lifestyle of freedom, travel, expressionism and relaxation.

+ Ok. So let’s say you have a bikini shoot in a week…tips on prepping?

ABAD: We shoot every week! So it’s all about balancing & living a healthy lifestyle.

+ Healthy food favie?

ABAD: Salad or a home cooked meal with chicken & veggies.

+ Reason you sweat?

ABAD: We always want to look our best in a bikini, but apart from that it’s just the feeling of being healthy!

+ Beauty product must-haves?

ABAD: Clinique face moisturizer with SPF, The Body Shop’s Body Butter, & bareMinerals powder.

+ Makeup bag essentials?

ABAD: NARS brozer, YSL ‘Shocking’ mascara, YSL eyeshadow, ‘NAKED’ Urban Decay eye palette, bareMinerals powder, & Maybelline concealer.

+ Natural beauty remedy:

ABAD: Teeth whitening. Mash up one strawberry & mix with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. Put it on your teeth for five minutes & then brush them. It works!

+ Secret model tip?

ABAD: Devin & I are all about curves and being natural so we believe in just balancing your lifestyle * still being able to eat what you want just in moderation. Then working out to balance it all.

+ Super quick healthy recipe:

ABAD: Sauté pre-sliced chicken breast in soy sauce, lemon, & a little bit of olive oil. Cook. Roast sweet potato slices & chopped onion for forty minutes, flipping half way. Cook corn & broccolini on the oven top.

Simple, but really delicious & healthy. This is our favorite meal!

Stress is a bitch.

These past two weeks have been way more stressful than usual. I’ve been trying to juggle a hundred different things & it feels like I’m working 24/7. It just seems hard to well, relax.

Even when I should be relaxing, it’s not happening.

Lately it’s been go, go, go. Between a million e-mails, the YouTube channel, teaching Pilates, an upcoming project, blogging, family, friends, etc, I’m pooped.

I mean, does anyone else feel like there really, seriously isn’t enough hours in the day? Geezzzzzz.

Anyway, enough of the Debbie Downer crap…

These are the ways I’ve been dealing with the chaos. They’re all simple, natural remedies but each one has been helping me decompress.

How I say buh-bye to stress:

+ Ice cream fizzies + candles make for a the perf bubble bath. Add some red wine & I’m chilling.

+ Coconut & kukui nut body oils…because they’re just yummy.

+ Cucumber slices for my eyes…my sister, Faye, swears by this.

+ And last but def not least, lavender aromatherapy. Call me crazy but I add a few drops plus water into a mini spray bottle ( << just like a witch doctor!! ) & then spritz it my pillow & my dog, Pixy. We each take long, deep breaths ; ). Ahhhh.

Obviously my number one stress cure is a workout. But I’m sure you already knew that.

Happy Thursday!
