Ultimate Icon

Who would have ever guessed that a young girl from Salvador, Bahia, Brazil would become one of the highest paid models in the world and carry the globally recognized brand Victoria’s Secret for almost twenty years?! Thursday, the days of all days the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (2018), this iconic model walked down the Victoria’s Secret runway for her last time. 

From embodying the ultimate athlete/model through her extensive workout plans and being known for boxing as her favorite form of cardio. As well as possessing a strong athletic build. She has also inspired many young models today, including yours truly. Personally speaking, she has been my role model as far back as I can remember. Not only as a model, but also as a womanly figure to look up to as she holds a mystique and confidence that is all her own. I aspire to attain that. Her charisma that lights up the Victoria’s Secret runway is and will remain untouchable as many models use the same “poses” and facial expressions she has done over the years

ie: point to her chest then up and around to form a heart with both hands ending by pointing to the camera as if to touch the audience at home.

Adriana Lima, you are the ultimate icon! For me and many others. We wish you farewell from the Victoria’s Secret Runway. But your legacy will forever continue as the upcoming models hold you within them. 

Karo Swimwear; a way to feel the confidence coming back.

Karo Swimwear is definitely my favorite swimwear brand. It is made with love, by the one and only Kasia Roginska. Also, all of the suits are extremelly comfortable. I’m someone that’s always struggled with confidence but when I put these suits on, I feel more confident than ever before. I feel beautiful. One of my favorite suits is the Lilacs one. The colors on it are so beautiful, and the white embroidery and beads make the suit pop. The couture piece is made for you from scratch by the designer, and will make you feel more beautiful than ever.

KARO- Feel confident in the skin you’re in!

There is no better feeling in the world than feeling confident, beautiful, and sexy in your own skin. About a year ago I decided to take a leap of faith and compete in a pageant. To my surprise I ended up getting a New England title! The next step was competing in a world pageant in Orlando, Florida. I was beyond excited for this lifetime opportunity!  I remeber going into countless stores trying to find the perfect bathing suit that fit to my exact curve and body shape. I must have tried on dozens of swimsuits at the mall and smaller boutiques. I did not feel satisfied in how I felt. I was looking to stand out and to find something that was very unique. I remeber one of my friends telling me about KARO swimwear. I contacted the CEO and I gave her my measurements and what I envisioned myself wearing on the runway. Within a few days my swimsuit was created and ready to wear. The first time I tried on my custom made swimsuit I almost cried tears of joy. It looked absolutely perfect. I felt esctatic and it made me much more confident when it came time to compete. If you’re looking to stand out and fit perfectly in your swimwear I highly recommend KARO swimwear.
