SAVAII LAVA FIELDS

Savaii Lava fields
This entire area is pretty amazing and historical.
Dating back to the early 1900s Mt Matavnu a fairly small volcano was the source of one of the biggest volcanic eruptions in the past century.
From 1905 for for the next 6 years this volcano spread lava through the villages to the cliff edges spanning over 50 square kilometres. This old church is now one of many tourist spots that you can visit and see for your self the extensive area that the lava spread.
A unique location to shoot a blog but also a little creepy and haunting, we had the entire place to ourselves  aside from the wild pigs haha.
Perfect place to shoot the Rodeo Show wanderlust mini.
You can shop this dress at www.rodeoshow.com.au great summery style or perfect winter tunic, layered up with tights and a chunky knit.
Obviously this was enough on its own in the humid tropical conditions, the Lava fields are like being in a sauna, hot work!!!

PALM SWIMWEAR MANASE BEACH

One of the most beautiful beaches we visited while in Samoa for Manase beach on Savaii.
White sand and the clearest blue water you have ever seen.
The water temperature was 31 degrees, you could seriously just lay in the water all day long.
We shot one of my favourite bikinis from www.palmswimwear.com the Alor set in white, love the cut of this top, its not a style you see everywhere and the white is perfect on tanned skin.
Now that I’m home I’m not sure that my tan will stick around very long, (sad face) I’m missing lazy days on the beach already!!!

TRIANGL LALOMANU BEACH

Triangl Swimwear Lolamanu beach Samoa.

We have just arrived home from two weeks in the South Pacific on the islands of Samoa.
What an incredible place to visit.
I love a holiday where you can escape the normal routine of everyday life and kick back and relax with a cocktail or two while exploring and experiencing a new culture.
We visited two islands this one being Upolu and theses images were taken at Lalomanu beach on the south/east coast.

The beaches here are so picturesque they look like something from a post card, the water is crystal clear and you can enjoy the laid back samoan life style by relaxing in one of the many beach Fales while taking in the beautiful surrounds.
To look at you would never know that this coast line was devastated 5 years ago by an 8.1 magnitude earthquake which then bought on a huge Tsunami the wiped out the coast line and villages with waves hitting the shore at 15 metres high.

The stories we heard from locals of survival were pretty amazing – the Samoans are such cheerful, vibrant people, being around the culture for two weeks certainly made us realise that if more people took a leaf out of their book the world would be a much better place.
They are always smiling and find happiness in the simple things in life.

It was great fun to blog some swimmers from www.triangl.com.au we certainly were spoilt with the back drops we could choose from.
These Bikinis speak for themselves and fitted with the Paradise like beaches just perfect.
Thanks @mattywoots for the images 🙂
