Raquel Paiva is one of our Sunshine Girls and she is killing it in our suits!
We truly love having Raquel on our team and you will see her in a lot of our products in the future.
Therefore we asked her some questions so you can get to know her better. 
How old are you and where do you live?
I am 25 years old and I live in NYC

We absolutely love your blog! What made you start, and what is your favorite thing about blogging?

When I moved from Brazil to NYC to go to school I felt the need to share everything that I was experiencing, learning, and wearing in this amazing city. So I created my blog to share a bit of everything from beauty tricks to travel destinations. My favorite thing about blogging is creating my personal style posts. I love to imagine an outfit and make it come to life through beautiful visual content.

Your favorite Sunshine State Swimwear product? 

Right now I am obsessed with the Denim set

Do you workout? If yes, what is your workout routine?

I love to workout and stay active. I am constantly trying out new classes, but right now my routine consists of spinning, total body conditioning, and boxing classes.

Fun fact about yourself?

When I am off I love to spend my free time cleaning the house and cooking.

What are your beach essentials?

A killer bathing suit, cute sunglasses, and comfy flip flops. Sometimes I add some jewelry when I’m feeling a little extra.

Describe yourself with 3 words.
Brave, creative and independent

If you could go anywhere in your Sunshine State Bikini, where would you go?

Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?

I hope that in 5 years from now I will have graduated from school, traveled to different countries, and have grown my blog and business.  

When you’re not in a bikini what is your go-to outfit?

High waisted bottom and crop top.
