Review from New Age Mama blog...
REVIEW FROM SMART MOMMIES BLOG It is like no other swimwear out there on the market. If you want a wow factor this is it. Perfect for any vacation, great for swimming lessons or just for a nice day at the beach. The swim suits are made with such great quality. My girls have had plenty of time wearing their adorable swimwear at our local water parks. The sign for me that these are a hit with young girls is having a few girls ages 8-14 saying they liked the swim wear my girls were wearing. Read more...
REVIEW OF THE LILY SUIT Since my Sophie is only 4 years old, I didn't want to put her in a swimsuit that's too revealing for her age. Since Squirtini Bikini caters to all tastes and body types, I had no problem finding the perfect suit for my little beach diva. Choosing the print, on the other hand, was a lot more challenging. All of the prints are super-cute, and if I could purchase one of each, I definitely would! Read more...

Flagler Surf Star: Hannah Blevins
When Hannah Blevins’s best friend Kiah Hutcherson talked her into signing up for surf camp, she didn’t think it would be something she would really like much less an event that would change her life. She was hooked after catching her first wave and hasn’t stopped catching them since. I met Hannah and her mom Sherry at the Si Como No Inn, where she was volunteering as a CIT (counselor-in-training) for North Beach “Spring Break” Surf Camp. At 11 years old she has already experienced a full circle in her surfing career, as she is now helping kids learn to surf. It can be safely presumed that whatever goals Hannah sets…she is going to succeed. Here’s an inside to what makes this young lady tick.

Squirtini Bikini ready to reel in tweensBy Lynda Johnson
Farley Boyle is confident her target customer will take to Squirtini Bikini like a fish takes to water. And Boyle knows a thing or two about swimwear and the discriminating tastes of girls.
A former swimsuit model who grew up in Florida, Boyle explains, “I’m a true Floridian; bathing suits are a huge part of your wardrobe there because you basically live in one daily.”
It was no surprise then, when her three active daughters — with very different fashion personalities and body types — couldn't find what they wanted in swimwear, that Boyle dove right in to the rescue, creating Squirtini Bikini.
Committed to designing swimwear that is functional, fits well and is fashion-forward, Boyle pumps up the appeal of her line even further by giving girls — and retailers — endless fashion possibilities. Tops and bottoms are designed to be mixed and matched. Boyle also entices customers with a group of core basic colors, allowing girls to buy additional pieces to change up their two-piece looks. Some pieces are reversible as well, creating another level of added value.
The debut collection features 16 different styles cut to offer the best coverage and fit for girls. One-piece suits, rash guards and trendy cover-ups are also included. Targeting girls' sizes 4-16, Squirtini Bikini wholesales from $15-$38.
