Joanne Mckay lives summer 365 days a year. The mama and model is based in Bali with her husband and beautiful baby girl, Nala. While on shoot location, the self-confessed beach girl styled our swimwear. Her choice? Bikinis that are comfortable, not too revealing and can be worn all day.
HOW DO YOU RESET YOUR WARDROBE FOR A NEW SEASON?
In Bali you don’t really need to reset your wardrobe for different seasons as it’s warm all year round.
WHAT ARE YOUR MUST-BUY ITEMS FOR SUMMER?
Coconut oil with SPF and a straw hat.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR SUMMER BEAUTY ROUTINE?
Every morning I use Clarins moisturiser with SPF to protect me from the sun. And throughout the day I use face and body mists to keep my skin feeling fresh and hydrated.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SWIMWEAR STYLE? DO YOU WEAR DIFFERENT STYLES FOR DIFFERENT SITUATIONS?
A bikini that isn’t too revealing and comfortable.
WHAT ARE YOUR THREE MUST-PACK ITEMS FOR A SUMMER VACAY?
Sunscreen, sunglasses and bikinis.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE SUMMER DESTINATION/S & WHY?
I live in a summer destination so my favourite winter destination would probably be Queenstown in New Zealand.
WHAT’S YOUR GO-TO WORKOUT?
Does carrying around a 12kg baby in 30 degree weather every day count as a work out?
WHAT’S YOUR GO-TO POST WORKOUT MEAL?
I don’t exactly work out. But before a big day with the kids I’ll have a big breakfast with eggs, sausages etc.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO WEAR WHEN YOU WORKOUT? DOES IT HELP TO MOTIVATE YOU?
Probably a bikini. It helps motivate me to do laps in the pool or after a swim I’ll do some squats.
HOW DO YOU PREPARE FOR A BIKINI SHOOT?
I usually go for a swim in the ocean the day before, leave it down till it’s damp then put it up in a bun till the shoot, so it’s all beachy and wavy. And dry oil is a must have for bikini shoots!
HOW DO YOU RELAX & UNWIND?
A movie and some treats.
WHAT’S THE NEXT BIG THING FOR YOU?
Starting a clothing label!
