In the spirit of Cupid’s favorite holiday, we’ve got 4 dreamy destination ideas for you and your lover. Sure, candy and flowers are nice, but a plane ticket to one of these dreamy destinations is just what Cupid has in mind.Bora Bora, French Polynesia
The definition of escaping reality, Bora Bora’s colorful sunsets, soft sands and gorgeous tropical flora & fauna are enough to never want to return home. Golden hour picnics + candlelit dinners are just some of the romantic activities you can do on this big blue island.
Amongst the limestone karsts and mangrove forests, Southern Thailand is the idyllic setting for a romantic rendezvous. Whether you go for a boat ride along the coastline or lounge on Krabi’s white sand beaches, you and your lover could explore this majestic town for days!
Lake Como, Italy
The view of Lake Como’s scenic crystal blue waters set against picturesque 12th-century city walls will have you falling in love all over again. Grab a glass of vino + take in the spectacular views of this colorful town.
A list of romantic destinations wouldn’t be completing without France! Located in the South of France, Provence’s dreamy lavender fields and nearby river canyon, The Verdon Gorge, are sights made for lovers! From cruising cliff-top roads to laying out on the beaches of Cote d’ Azur, Provence, France is sexy, sun-drenched + irresistibly seductive.

While every season is bikini season here at L*Space, we’re just like everyone else looking forward to the warmer weather ahead.
With the spring season just around the corner, it’s time to get those bikini wish lists ready. Straight from the L*Space design room, here’s a list of the top 2016 swim trends coming to a beach or pool near you!
Embrace your tan lines. This season you’ll want to flaunt off those tan lines like a badge of honor. If you love strappy, you’ll love our LEXIE, NEW WAVE + WILD ONE (along with a few new silhouettes making their debut!)
Peek-A-Boo Cut Outs
Show a little skin. This season we’re loving the subtle (& not so subtle) peek-a-boo cut outs.
Our favorite wardrobe staple crosses into swim this year. From denim color-block to lace details, expect to see denim at a beach (or pool) near you!
High-Waisted Bikini BottomsFrom the beaches of the Bahamas to poolside in Miami, this season we’re expecting to see a ton of high-waisted bikini bottoms. Expect to see side cut-outs, ruching and color block detailing. We especially love our VALENTINA, MARILYN + TIGRESS.
Athletic-InspiredWe love functionality + fit when it comes to swim because let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to wear their favorite suit to stand up paddleboard in? This season we’re loving our new LIVELY and a few other sporty silhouettes you’ll see in our Spring/Summer 2016 line.
High Neckline Halter Tops
Equal parts sporty and sexy, high necklines are one of our new favorite swim silhouettes this season. In addition to providing a little more coverage and support, we love the versatility of these suits as you can wear them with high-waisted beach pants or your favorite bikini bottom.
Black + White
Black & white never goes out of style. This season, expect to see new variations of black & white combos including animal prints, color blocking + strapping details.
We brush our teeth, our hair, etc., but what about our skin? While eating healthy + drinking lots of water are beauty regime basics, one of the best-kept beauty secrets around is dry brushing. We’re here to give you the scoop on why we’re totally obsessed with dry brushing & why you’ll love it too!
Hello Glowing Skin!
Not surprising, dry brushing is AMAZING for achieving that golden glow. When it comes to dry brushing, invest in a natural fiber brush (available for under $10 at most natural foods + beauty stores).Bye, Bye Cellulite
We were totally skeptic about this until we tried it ourselves! Dry brushing aids in the distribution of fat deposits, tightening the skin and reducing the appearance of cellulite.
In addition to the external benefits such as radiant + super soft skin, dry brushing has a TON of health benefits including aiding the body’s natural detoxification process. (PS - Don’t be alarmed if your sweat starts to smell a bit different after this regime – that means it’s working!) In addition, dry brushing helps improve circulation.
Nature’s Dose of Caffeine
Dry brushing in the morning helps awaken your body. We like to think of it as nature’s coffee ;)
Now the How-To:
1. Starting at your feet, begin to brush upwards as you make your way up to your chest. When you brush, always brush towards your heart, as you’ll want to work up in the same direction as your lymphatic system.
2. Give each area a firm brush using long strokes. Avoid brushing areas with skin cuts or rashes as well as your face. Be gentle on sensitive skin and areas that are more prone to sensitivity.
3. Once you’ve brushed your entire body, hop in the shower and wash off the dead skin. Don’t forget to add some coconut oil for oh-so soft skin!
4. Drink lots of water! We love to end our daily ritual with a cup of hot tea + pinch of lemon.
5. Make sure to wash your brush once or twice a week!
