As anyone that follows me on any sort of social media would know – I’m obsessed with NOVAH Swimwear! The swimwear line is born out of Bermuda by designer, Madeline White. This is why I’m so excited that NOVAH has come out with a new line! The first pieces of the collection just became available to preorder!

I was able to try on some of the pieces from the new collection and I have to say that per usual – they are amazing. In keeping with NOVAH style they are made from an amazing fabric that is supportive yet comfortable for any activity. The bathing suits are made from an Italian Lycra that is chlorine and UV resistant and has excellent shape retention. The quality is apparent in the swimsuits from the last collections, mine still look as good as new. The prints range from solid colors to be staples in your closet to exotic designs that will catch your eye.
The styles and colours reflect who I feel a NOVAH girl is, and what she loves and what she does in her swim. You will see a lot of sporty styles, and luxe basics that allow you to look amazing and sexy and feminine whilst you swim, surf, cliff jump, paddle board, sunbathe, whatever you want. NOVAH has always been designed around outgoing, vivacious women who want to look great while they have fun. – Madeline White (Designer)
In fitting with NOVAH style, Madeline White strives to use Bermudian models and promote the brand as being Bermudian. She states that, “NOVAH is a Bermudian brand and thats what I am proud of and thats what I want to show the world, so being able to use so many different Bermudian models is fantastic”.
I’m so excited about the pieces in this new collection. The colors and designs are beautiful as always and definitely do not disappoint. Can’t wait to start rocking these new suits!

On Thursday I had the opportunity to attend Uncorked at the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club. When hearing about the event I basically heard wine tasting and was immediately on board. I went to Uncorked and had an amazing time. Not only was it a night to try some new wines, but there were also fun games to play for a chance to win prizes. Some of the these included cute wine glasses, cork stoppers, fitness classes, and hats. My luck per usual wasn’t very great but I did manage to score some good prizes.
There were tables with various wines and proseccos on them to sample. Guests were provided with a pamphlet to keep track of the wines they were tasting and I have to say it helped me keep track of some new favorites. In addition to some great wines I was able to sample some yummy sweets from Nea Pantry’s Sweet and Kind Vegan Bakery. I never knew vegan could taste so amazing!
One of the best parts of the event was that it gave back to a good cause! The money put into the games and raffles went as a donation to the Chewstick Foundation. For those that don’t know, Chewstick was a location on Front Street where artists, performers, storytellers, and more could gather and express themselves through shows, performances, etc. The Chewstick Foundation is a non-profit cultural arts movement in Bermuda. They are self described as “dedicated to breaking down social barriers, providing opportunities for storytellers of every medium and committed to being a part of the solution; we use creative programmes, events and initiatives to empower the individual and enrich the community. Chewstick is the frontline of change; attracting the most diverse, inclusive and exciting audience and participants to be found. Support the vibes! respect. freedom. love. truth”. Recently the building fell victim to a devastating fire and Chewstick had to close. All of their efforts and fundraising are being put towards rebuilding.
I think events like this are an amazing way for people in Bermuda to gather and broaden their horizons by doing something a bit out of the ordinary and I love that the community has come together to support rebuilding Chewstick! Looking for more to come!
