Prey Swim: From Concept to Launch!

12 / 23 / 16

Prey Swim 5I started Prey Swim almost 3 years ago — I was always on the hunt for the perfect suit but couldn’t seem to find it. So, after running the idea by a few friends, I decided that I wanted to learn all about the swim industry and explore the possibility of starting a line of my own.

To be completely honest — we had a lot of set backs getting this line to where it is today. But, I have learned SO much because I’ve been involved in every step of this process. I knew I wanted to create a line that would have something for everyone. My goal was to create high quality swimsuits that are stylish, trendy, and a confidence booster for women of all shapes and sizes.

One of the things I love most about this line is that you can (basically) get two swimsuits for the price of one because every suit is reversible and has interchangeable straps for different looks and chest support. Some of the styles are a bit more fashion forward — like the Duck Dive Bottoms that have suspenders (the butt bra suit haha!). But, I think every girl needs a boyfriend suit, family suit, pool party suit, and tanning suit, and that is what I took into consideration while designing, as well.

Every collection will be inspired by my travels and love for different cultures, and I can’t wait to share everything with you. Stay tuned:)Prey Swim 6

Gluten-Free Holiday Apple Crumbles!

12 / 21 / 16

With the holidays right around the corner, there is only one thing on my mind: DESSERT!Apple Crumble Audrina 4

The delicate, delicious winter dessert recipe was passed along by my friend  Neda Varbanova from Healthy with Nedi! This dessert is loaded with heart healthy fats and high-fiber content, meaning it is the perfect blend of healthy & delicious. An apple crumble is a great dessert to whip up for holiday guests  —  you can prepare and bake it early in the day, then heat it up just before serving! HINT: For an extra treat, add vanilla ice cream (Nedi’s favorite is Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss!)

Holiday Gifts For Everyone On Your List

12 / 09 / 16

As holiday shopping lists begin to finalize, I wanted to share a few of my favorite gift ideas! The easiest way to select holiday gifts for everyone on your list is to decide what you want to evoke — Could your mom use a little relaxation? Or is your sister in need of a new pair of boots? Thoughtful gifts are the best because it proves the person felt like spending more than a few minutes on the recipient, instead of purchasing a simple gift card.

There are so many gifts available online that will put a smile on anyone’s face and conveniently arrive at your doorstep — Like the Erbaviva Relax Deluxe Gift Set, which includes everything you need for a daily at-home-spa experience! Keep reading for more of my favorite gift options, happy shopping!

We recently celebrated with a Moroccan-themed party to kick off the launch! The space was beautifully decorated to complement the collection with Bohemian accents from Witty Rentals and oversized palm leaves and sleek succulents provided by Florist Petals LA! Guests enjoyed specialty Ciroq Mango cocktails, custom desserts by Cake Studio, and wine minis by Electric Sky Wine while listening to music by DJ Lindsay Luv.
