Tropic Like it’s Hot with Knix Swimwear

Okay, somebody PINCH ME!

I’ve been beyond excited to be a part of the new Knix swimwear collection launch at

About a month ago, they had an open Model Casting Call for a photoshoot in Tulum, Mexico so (obviously!) I didn’t think twice about applying. They had to cancel the event for an obvious reason (eh hem, global pandemic – that one is on you!) but to make up for it, Knix reached out to a few women to be a part of the launch of their new swim collection.

Here’s where the pinching comes in:

I was one of the women they reached out to! WHAT?!?!

When I saw the email, I couldn’t respond fast enough! I was SO excited! As you already know, I am obsessed with brands that empower women… when it comes to anything girl power, I’m like Lizzo and her flute. I get totally inspired! Add modeling for a brand that shares my values and I’m a total goner.

Knix believes all women should live unapologetically. Free yourself from judgment and self-doubt, and embrace the freedom to be YOU. Their mission is for you to feel comfortable in your own skin, and I am here 🙌🏽 for 🙌🏽 it 🙌🏽!

I love brands that are continuing to be the driving forces for female inclusivity, diversity, community, and supporting women in their feat to change the world.

Though I was a little nervous at first, modeling in my studio apartment turned out to be a ton of fun! It challenged me creatively and I’m really pleased with the outcome. (It certainly helped that Knix sent me the best happy mail – their Tanki Top and Bikini Bottom in black.) 

Let me tell you:

This suit is like the little black dress of swimwear. And as if that’s not enough, it’s perfect for jumping, splashing, laughing, and dancing.

Between the Knix mission and the quality of their collections, I’m obsessed with this brand! It continues to inspire me to model and create. I want to be a part of this beautiful narrative and see the impact that it’s has throughout the world. 

Talk to me!

Are you all about the bikini life or are you mermaid-ing in a one-piece? What brand(s) get you excited?
