10 Vintage Swimsuits under $30

10 Vintage Swimsuits under $30

10 Vintage Swimsuits under $30
I’m getting a headstart on swimsuit season this year! Swimsuits are being put on display earlier and earlier every year; I swear I saw some out in January. If you wait like a normal human being until the weather warms up you run the risk having to pick through the ugly leftovers which is no fun.

I’ve started mainly shopping online because it’s asinine to be forced to shop so early in the year! Today’s roundup is to showcase 10 of my favorite vintage swimsuits from my summer swimsuit wishlist for the year. These are all also under 30 bucks so they’re easy on the wallet too!

Vintage Style Swimsuits

Floral Striped Vintage Swimsuit

1. CUPSHE Vintage Bowknot One-Piece Swimsuit $28.99 Sizes 2-20

Floral stripes are a favorite design combo of mine if you can’t tell by this collection! This rosy cutout one piece is right up my alley but unfortunately doesn’t have quite enough support up top for this gal. 

Floral Vintage Swimsuit

2. CUPSHE Floral One-Piece Swimsuit  $28.99 Sizes 4-20

This floral suit has an amazing size range and a useful sizing guide that shows which size correlates to your bra size. Trying to pick the right size can be a pain so I always appreciate it when brand’s size guides are actually grounded in reality. It comes in five different beautiful floral designs.

 

Floral Navy Bikini

3. Zaful Floral High Cut Bandeau Bikini $16.99  Sizes 4-8

Bandeaus scream accident waiting to happen, but I can dream, right?

 

Pastel Vintage Floral Swimsuit

5. CUPSHE Floral One-Piece Swimsuit $32.99 4-14

This is a different color variation of the second suit listed above. These delicate pastel florals are gorgeous and I love the striped side panels. I think this would look really flattering on any body type!

6. Angerella High Waisted Bikini Set $29.99 Sizes 14-18

This two-piece suit comes in a whopping 22 variations! The other styles have a larger size range; I’m just really digging this floral apricot design.

 

7. Begonia.K Tropical Print V-Neck One Piece $22.99 XS-XXL Sizes

I think this beautiful tropic print more than makes up for the inevitable funky tan lines! Anything is better than the suit I bought last year. It has 8 straps that come together into a pentagram on the back….. Not looking forward to explaining that tan line design haha. This floral suit comes in 8 different floral prints and different strap styles.

 

8. Elegant Taste Vintage Flounce One Piece $26.99 S-XL Sizes

I’ve never been a huge fan of flounce tops; they’re cute above water but not very practical for swimming. This monochrome suit is very close to changing my mind; I love the white detailing! It comes in six different colors.

Green Striped Vintage Swimsuit

9. CUPSHE Vintage Lace One Piece $28.99 SM-XXL Sizes

This sweet lacy v-neck swimsuit comes in 6 colors all complete with a touch of vintage inspired lace. It also has a whopping 4.3/5 star rating and countless rave reviews so this hopped straight into my shopping cart!

Pink Floral Two Piece Swimsuit

10. CUPSHE This is Love Lace Up Halter Bikini $28.99 XS-XXL Sizes

Last but not least, we have a peach and mint bikini set! Cupshe seems to consistently have great reviews online and all the suits I’ve bought have been comfy as well as cute! I love bikini sets like this because they’re easy to mix and match with pieces you already own.

Maple Holistics Silk18 Conditioner Review

Maple Holistics Silk18 Conditioner Review

Hey Y’all!

My wedding is slated for this September and I’m on a quest to re-invigorate my hair in time for the big day. Step one of this hair quest is stepping up my haircare routine. Maple Holistics reached out and offered to let me test out their Silk18 Conditioner.

Amazing Vanilla Scent

This is a vanilla scented natural oil infused conditioner with protein strengtheners. If you’re a fan of home baked scents this vanilla scented product is for you. It smells just like a steaming fresh vanilla cupcake. I’m currently using an unscented shampoo so the scent wasn’t a deal breaker but I tend to use floral scented products so usually, I steer away from strong scents like this. Too many strong scents can leave you with a funky end result.

Silk18 Conditioner Review

Maple Holistics states this can:

“Tame dry, frizzy hair while strengthening and fortifying strands. A blend of eighteen silk amino acids are infused into this hair strengthening conditioner. The silk proteins are enhanced with a nourishing blend of argan oil, shea butter, organic pomegranate, and jojoba oil which deliver nutrients to promote softer, smoother, more lustrous looking tresses. Our conditioner is silicone and paraben free making it great for all hair types, color treated hair, and sensitive skin.”

This is silicone, paraben, and sulfate free + cruelty free with recycled packaging to boot!

Pros & Cons of Silk18 Conditioner

Pros:

1 .Amazing vanilla scent

2 .Left my hair perfectly detangled & frizz free

3 .My hair was noticeably shiny after using only 1 time

Cons:

There was actually just one con, I did not get any volume as the bottle claimed. This is probably due to my painfully stubborn stick straight hair. I would rather be rid of frizz than have the ever elusive volume that I crave. I think it’s a tad impossible to get both volume and sleekness with the same product so I can’t be too put out.

What do you look for in a conditioner? Volume, anti-frizz, or shine? I’d love to hear!

It’s been a hot minute since I whipped up a DIY beauty recipe. The minute I saw that Etude House had dropped a mint chocolate lip scrub I knew I wanted to try to make my own recipe. Keep reading to learn how to make your own batch of minty delicious lip scrub!

This only took me 5 minutes to mix up and will give your chapped lips some much needed loving through these cold windy days.

DIY Mint Chocolate Lip Scrub

Mint Chocolate Lip Scrub Recipe

Ingredients you will need:

Step One:

Melt the coconut oil by microwaving 30-60 seconds and then mix in your colorant and mint extract. Be sure to use the mint sparingly or you’ll end up with some very bracing scrub!

Step Two:

Mix in your sugar, cocoa, and exfoliant. I added ground raspberry seeds for some extra exfoliating, but this is purely optional. You could also swap the white sugar with brown sugar for a darker mixture.

Step Three:

Your scrub mixture should look something like this:

DIY Mint Chocolate Lip Scrub

Feel free to add more sugar or coconut oil as needed to get the perfect consistency. The cold air this time of air loves to leave me with sore chapped lips; this scrub is going to be a lifesaver! I recommend refrigerating your mixture since this recipe does not include any preservatives.

I used an empty beauty sample jar to hold the mixture. Whatever you use, make sure it’s airtight!

DIY Mint Chocolate Lip Scrub

Let me know if you give this DIY lip scrub a spin, I’d love to hear how it comes out! You could also swap out the mint extract for another scent you love. Vanilla, almond, chocolate, or strawberry, the possibilities are endless!
