Wha kind of update would you like the hear about?
It’s a new year, and while everyone is spending these first weeks of 2014 rethinking their goals and pondering their aspirations for the next 12 months, I am thinking about my feet.
I like to think that since I try to reflect and better myself year round (ha!), I’m exempt from all the New Year’s Resolution hullabaloo. And so, as I mentioned, I have decided to use all this extra thinking time to obsess over Resort 2014′s amazing Birkenstock/shower shoe inspired slides:
one. CÉLINE Flat Criss-Cross Sandal | two. MARNI Criss-cross Slide Sandal | three. GIAMBATTISTA VALLI Birken Sandals | four. ISABEL MARANT Holden Leather Slides | five. CHLOÉ Metal-Detailed Slide Sandals
We are excited to announce that you can now purchase our swim at BLOOMIES…
And if you want to pre-order the new collections, you can order it here.
This is such big news for us-and we are so happy to share it with you.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY EVERYONE! We are having a great time here in Costa Rica which makes this holiday a little bit irrelevant but nonetheless, pinterest had an abundance of pink and red images I found myself pinning. I say irrelevant because there is nothing we need more at the moment. SS14′ collection has pink in it and you can pre-order it now! I took one sample on vacation with me to test it out so I’ll report back on how it looks with a tan and beach:) My hubby and I booked a couples massage here at the BAMBOO SPA so that will be a nice end to this magical day.
Hope you have a great Valentine’s day with your love today and always!
It’s been too long since we’ve been on a proper warm weather vacation…this snow storm after snow storm thing is getting old. We are off to Costa Rica to my friend’s place called Florblanca. It’s my favorite place on earth really….I have not been to a place that had it all..(for us at least)….so I’m super excited to go back to this paradise. I plan to ride a horse on the beach on my b-day and surf with my husband on Valentine’s day…follow my Instagram feed if you want to see.
I hope you too get to escape the cold this winter break and if not I will send many many warm vibes your way.

My sweet baby is 1 today!!!! ONE!!!!!!!!!!!! I know everyone says it but WHERE DID THE TIME GO????? With a second child I sure did enjoy this time better as I was less of a freak…freaking out about every little thing as a first time parent is natural but you miss being able to actually enjoy all the little moments…so this time I really tried to take it slow and enjoy my little babe.

The girl’s suits are reversible! The leopard reverses to pink, The flamingo print reverses to either black or pink, and the grey reverses to white. We are working on getting them added to our online shop but in the meantime I wanted to show you these beautiful photographs taken by my talented friend Gray Benko I want to give a special thank you to my friends Gray, Chassity and Jenny for letting us steals their kids on a not so warm january day in Sullivan’s beach,SC. They kids did an amazing job don’t you think? My girls are here too..can you spot them?

Happy New Year week 2! Now that we are back home and a new fresh week is starting, I decided it’s time to stop procrastinating and get my body and health back. It’s one month before my baby’s 1st birthday and I’m still 10 or even 12 lbs away from what I was before my pregnancy. I feel so much better when I eat well and once I stick to it for a while it’s not too hard to continue so here we go…..what would Gwennie do?
If you’ve followed this blog for awhile you’ll know I’m a Gwyneth Paltrow fan and I like her blog and books.
She just posted a new 3 DAY WARMING WINTER DETOX which can’t be as bad as the 7 day one I did in the past. My plan is to do the 3 day to ease into things and then do the harder 7 day one in a couple weeks maybe. We have a tropical vacation planned and I can’t look bad in my own swimsuit you know? What kind of swimwear designer would I be???? ugh
So I’m printing out this body image and a countdown to VACA…I have exactly 38 days to make this happen…I know I can I know I can:)
I’ll be back to tell you how it went. Below is a cheat sheet of the most important things to avoid along with the menu that can be altered in so many ways (they list a bunch of recipes so it’s a sure thing something will sound appetizing to you).
Wishing you all health, happiness, and LOVE! 2014 will be a great year! Thank you for your support!!!
We are taking our older daughter on a little vaca to our old stomping grounds…Venice Beach, CA. Baby is staying with my parents and I really hope I don’t cry everyday from missing her, but it will sure be nice to sleep! You totally forget that you don’t sleep for a year or two when you have a baby. Anyways, I hope to go to my old fav YAS class and just breathe the ocean air. Hoping for warm weather and to soak up a little sun too. Later I should tell you guys about all my favorite restaurants there because I have a few REALLY GOOD spots and I can’t wait to pig out! Enjoy your break and gather some energy for 2014! Bikini diet starts after this:) Later!

After apple picking comes apple pie making! Hope this inspires you to make your own delicious pie so great for this time a year. I must say this one turned out YUMMY!
It’s pretty simple, just follow these directions and your should be tasty too.
We had a mixture of apples from the orchard but granny smith’s supposed to be best for this
What you’ll need:
*4 pounds of apples- peeled, quartered then sliced in thirds crosswise
* zest of 1 lemon
* zest of 1 orange
* 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
* 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed orange juice
* 1/2 cup sugar, plus 1 teaspoon to sprinkle on top
* 1/4 cup all purpose flour
* 1 teaspoon kosher salt
* 1teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
* 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
* 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon of water to combine top and bottom crush and to spread on top
Follow these steps they match the photos above: after you pre heat the over to 400 degrees.
1| peel and cut apples 2|zest the lemon 3| zest the orange 4| squeeze juice from lemon and orange…i eyed the amount here…i think a little more is better 5|add sugar 6| add flour 7|add all spices…i graded the nutmeg in 8|mix it up 9|place apples in the crust 10|salivate over your pretty doings 11| put the egg mixture on the edge on pie crust 12| close the crusts together (you can do this with a fork too) 13| put it in the oven for 1 to 1 & 1/4 hours Enjoy your weekend with or without pie! xoxo Marysia
It’s that time of year again…apple picking in the country! We were in the Hamptons last weekend and had our friend, Tara Sgroi join us for an apple picking adventure. She took all these beautiful images at Hanks so I could share this with you. The apples we picked taste so much better then the organic store bough ones….maybe because we did it with our own hands…mmmmm I can’t wait to bake a pie. Anyone with a tasty and simple receipt? I always forget which food network receipt I use. What fall traditions to you share with your families and friends?
P.S. My baby Tola turned 8months this day too:)
Hi there, it’s been so long! My baby will be 8 months soon and I’m finally getting things back on track. Summer was nice but I’m so glad to be back in NYC back to the schedule.
I’m gathering packaging ideas as I want to re-vamp our brand’s look. Something that better captures where we are today. In the past I looked to big names for inspiration and although I still love that polished look I think we need to capture our family run business feel a bit more. Everything you buy from our e-commerce comes from right here, our home/office….and so I want you to feel that as well….adding a personal touch should be nice…don’t you think?
Speaking of personal touches, we are off to our fav beach spot, sole east in Montauk. This resort has an awesome feel. Homie/cool vibe that’s hard to find. I’m looking forward to soaking in the heated pool with my girls and watching Natty surf at Ditch Plains. If it’s not too crowded maybe I’ll even get to surf….I have yet to go after I gave birth.
What are you up to this weekend?
Check out my interview by a new online retailer REVOLVECLOTHING.COM Thank you Anna for the cute post….read more from Revolve’s BLOG and Anna’s fashion week coverage.I had the pleasure of meeting the girl behind the blog last night…so fun!
New York native and ocean-loving swimwear designer Marysia Reeves dives into the details that inspire her to create bikinis for her eponymous line. Summer may be winding down, but that doesn’t mean we can’t continue loving these scallop-trimmed two-pieces! Wherever there’s water, there’s a way.
modern, fun, chic
3. Who do you have in mind when you create your designs?
My It girls like Leandra Madine, Hannah Bronfman, and Gaia Repossi, along with our customers who leave us comments and requests of what they are looking for.
4. How does living in NYC inspire you and your designs?
It’s unending inspiration. Sometimes it’s hard to tell what, when and where it happened but I’m inspired by the energy, so creating something new is never a problem.
5. Where is your favorite place to wear you bikinis?
I guess my favorite would be a cool resort like Florblanca, Costa RIca. ‘m always wearing my own designs to the pool, beach, spa.
6. What was the design process behind your Summer collection?
I wanted to give our girl something with a little more punch with the cobalt blue. I wanted to make the styles simple but strong at the same time. It was all about the modern look.
7. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I’m there! NYC is ideal for me. I’m working on the beach shack in Montauk and then I’ll be set!
8. What are 5 things you must bring to the beach?
My panama hat, beach towel from our family’s beach club, La- Roche Posay sunscreen, and Oliver Peoples sunglasses ? all in the Marysia SwIm beach tote.
