We have island fever over these next two BLUMOSS Babes, Kathy and Cindy, the bloggers behind Island Fever Sisters! Each sun-kissed sister blogs from her respective island: Kathy writes of idyllic beach life in Oahu and Cindy reports from the midsts of Manhattan glamour. Both cover the lifestyle gamut from fashion and travel to food and fitness - all under the lens of luxury. Intrigued? So were we - read on for our IFS Q&A:
BM: Give us the rundown on IFS!
IFS: We are two sisters who live from coast to coast, Hawaii and NYC that both live on an island, hence the name. :) We love to travel, always up on the latest beauty products and enjoy jet-setting in fab resort wear. Our friends always asked us for advice when it came to these three topics and we decided to turn it into a blog for them. It's grown so much since then and now we are sharing it with other fans and readers.
BM: What's your best Travel Tip?
IFS: Don't over pack.You hardly ever wear everything anyways. Roll everything tightly in a carry-on and never check-in luggage. If we can travel for a month with just a carry on, so can you! :)
BM: What is the most challenging thing when it comes to swimwear shopping?
IFS: Well, we both are blessed up top, so the most challenging thing would be finding a supportive top that is flattering.
BM: Please share your best swimsuit / bikini fit tip with us.
IFS: Like we said before, finding a supportive top has always been challenging. Don't go for something that is trendy, go for something that flatters your figure. We love BLUMOSS, because they make swimsuits for all figures and they add double lycra and cups into the swimwear. The swimwear shapes your figure in all the right places and has a slimming effect. Bonus!

BLUMOSS X TCM Q&A
BM: Summer is just around the corner - can you share three CLEAN METHODS you are currently practicing to get bikini body ready?
TCM: 1) Eating clean, of course. This means incorporating more fresh veggies and fruit into my diet, as well as lean proteins and cutting back on carbs.
2) Adding more cardio to my workout regimen, as well as targeted resistance training.
3) Reducing stress. People often forget that stress is one of the biggest diet killers!
BM: Tell us why you love your BLUMOSS suit.
TCM: Because it makes me feel comfortable in my own skin...which, when it comes to fashion, is the most important feeling of all!
BM: What’s your inspirational takeaway message for women everywhere?
TCM: Be yourself. Women, especially, feel the need to live up to society’s expectations of how they should look and act. They are all different types of beautiful, and authentic beauty starts with being true to who you are.
BM: Please finish this line for us: BLUMOSS babes are…
TCM: Resilient, beautiful and totally kick-ass.
Classic swimsuit styles are mainstays for a reason - their iconic design is both functional and fashionable. The Villa Halter Maillot is one such suit, with it’s plunging, deep V neckline and modest bottom coverage. In a bold, solid color, the maillot becomes a statement piece that makes for a slimming silhouette with elegant, long lines. This one-piece is quintessential to your resort wear closet.
