Definitely Cuba, it was a great experience for the senses.

What do you enjoy most about travelling with your partner?

That he helps me with my oversized luggage! Seriously though I love chatting with him about what we see and being able to experience things together.

Best moment in another country?

One of my favourite travel experiences happened while on a trip with Somewear Elsewhere, snorkelling in Fiji was truly something else! It had the most amazing coral I’ve ever seen.

    Cuba really surprised me, that’s why it is my favourite travel destination so far.

    Where do you want to go to next?

    I would love to travel to French Polynesia.

    If you could only live in one place for the rest of your life, where would it be?

    Brunch for Breast Cancer

    Brunch for Breast Cancer

    On October 12, Ete founder Jessica Willamson hosted a Brunch for Breast Cancer to raise funds for the McGrath Foundation during breast cancer awareness month.

    The cause is close to Jessica's heart, with both her grandmother and mother being diagnosed with breast cancer.

    “One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime so it’s important we bring awareness to the disease and remind women to get checked,’’ she said.

    The event was held at Studio 8 in Perth with the venue being transformed into a pink wonderland, with the help of several local businesses.

     Guests were greeted to an Aloe Vera shot and raffle ticket on arrival, then spent the morning enjoying an array of nibbles, sweets and drinks.

     The event also featured entertainment with performances from Perth Musician Ezereve and live fashion drawing from Australian Illustrator Cassandra Anderson.

    Throughout the day guests were invited to take part in raffles for prizes such as spa treatments, homeware, gifts and vouchers, with approximately half of those in attendance going home with a prize.

    Jess said the event received overwhelming support from other Australian businesses.

    “So many local brands have supported the event and its cause through their contributions of prizes and services,” she said.

    “We’ve also had some donations from brands Go-To Skincare and Sofi Spritz which has been amazing.”

    Whitsundays Travel Guide

    Whitsundays Travel Guide

     ETE Swimwear was lucky enough to be in partnership with @somewear_elsewear’s on their recent Whitsundays trip, with influencers Fredrika @fakander; Lisa @lisahomsy; Mel @Melvandersluis; Kirsty @Kirstycane and Kendall @kendallbaggerly. On this trip we got to experience many of the beautiful beaches and resorts of the Whitsundays Islands, and engage in fun activities that Australia provides!


     Places to stay in Whitsundays

    We stayed at Daydream Island, which was exactly as the name suggests. A surreal getaway with amazing deep blue seas hidden beaches and a great resort. Here we were treated to stretch classes in an underwater observatory which is an experience we will never forget! Daydream Island is located a 20 minute boat ride away from the mainland and is the only resort on the Island. We were extremely fortunate to be able to visit Daydream Island as it was hit by a cyclone a couple years ago which caused the resort to shut but was re-opened earlier this year.

    Kendall wearing the Oia off-shoulder bikini top with Sophia bikini bottoms in white 

    Next, we stayed at the Mirage Whitsundays, located on the mainland Airlie Beach where majority of tours depart from. Here, the rooms were huge! With each of us being treated to the Penthouse; a 4-bedroom luxury villa with views that spanned across the ocean. There is no better way to wake up in the morning when you have such a view. 

     Fredirika showing the Oia off-shoulder bikini top in white

    Last but not least, we stayed at Peppers Hotel, also located at Airlie Beach. Peppers had the most luxurious bathrooms ever seen, with large tubs and jets, warmed to the perfect temperature - the best way to relax after a long day!


    Lisa wearing the Santorini off-shoulder swimsuit in white  

    Restaurants to go to

    Northerlies, graced by beautiful grounds and even more beautiful beaches. Here we saw a stunning sunset followed by a classic Australian BBQ dinner. Which was a great reminder of home for some of the Australian influencers on the trip and a great experience for the international influencers! 

    Boathouse Fishbar had the best service and food while on our Whitsundays trip. We recommend it to anyone staying at Airlie beach who wants a great night out to eat!


    Inkstone restaurant, a part of Daydream Islands' own restaurants, where we were able to enjoy modern Australian dishes.

     Also apart of Daydream Island's restaurants was Infinity, a fine dinning restaurant, with amazing meals which looked extremely appetising. 



    While at Daydream Island we were able to go on a jet ski tour around the island. We saw the beauty of the island from the water, and had so much fun while doing so!


    We also went on the Ocean Rafting tour where we visited two snorkelling spots, and we got to swim at the beautiful Great Barrier Reef. After we went to Whitehaven beach, we spent two hours exploring. We then had a delicious lunch aboard the boat.

    Kendall showcasing the Olympia one-peice swimsuit in lilac 

    Next, we drove up to the beautiful beach town of Bowen. This iconic little town is home to the big Mango, one of Australia’s most iconic and peculiar tourist sights. After we saw the eccentric spectacle, we had an amazing picnic lunch at Horseshoe bay provided by Merkai Whitsundays and Birds Fish Bar.

    What to pack

    When going to a beachy paradise; must haves are

    • Boracay skin
    • Bianko Jewlery
    • and of course your Ete swimwear!

    Our cute bathers were perfect for the summer weather, and our new Santorini collection was a flawless match with the blue and white hues of Whitsundays beaches!

In past years there has been a colours party much similar to Holi with the throwing of powdered chalk. Or a beach ball party with hundreds of beach balls flying around. This festival is massive and gets hectic, for some it’s a little overwhelming, for others a wild ride they can’t miss out on.

    Fiji Travel Guide

    Fiji Travel Guide

    Ete Swimwear in partnership with Somewear Elsewhere went to the gorgeous Fiji Islands along with influencers Jamie @jamienkidd; Lisa @lisahomsy; Cara @carajourdan; Adri and Luke @maya_gypsy London @london_ellis. In this tropical getaway, we went to many different Fiji resorts, restaurants, and explored the islands  


    Places to stay in Fiji

    Girls wearing the Lani Cheeky Bottoms and malia top in Blush embroidery, Sorrento High-Waist Bottoms and Amalfi Top in Vintage Stripes

    We stayed at the stunning Fiji Marriot resort Momi Bay where we continued to relax and explore for the next two days. The Marriot was gorgeous with 3 pools including an infinity pool looking over the ocean, and bungalows which floated above water. The rooms were extremely spacious, and it was great having all your friends and the ocean close by.

    Fiji Marriot resort Momi Bay


    We also stayed at the Sheraton resort on Tokoriki Island. Here we experienced the beautiful culture of the Fijian people and were stunned by the beautiful sunsets that graced Sheraton shores. Sheraton was also blessed by having a beautiful reef right by the resort where we often went snorkelling.  

    Sheraton Tokoriki 

    Adri wearing the Sorrento High-Waist Bottoms and  Amalfi Top in Vintage Stripes

    For our last two days, we stayed at Westin Fiji on the mainland on Denauru Island, which meant we had access to shops, golf courses and the airport but were still able to get away in the tropical paradise of Fiji.

    Westin Fiji


     Where to eat in Fiji 

    All the hotels we stayed at had a variety of restaurants to choose from, but these were our favourites.

    At the Marriot we had a special wine dinner at the lagoon as we watched the sunset, then for mains and dessert, we went to the Fish Bar. There they had some of the finest plates of seafood and so much variety, all the girls were overwhelmed with the place and we had to go back for a second time.

    Adri in the  Sorrento High-Waist Bottoms and Amalfi Top in Ocean blue

    On Tokoriki Island we ate at the Beef Risto. The lovely restaurant offered a stunning view of the beach and islands surrounding it, while we dined on our delicious cuisine.

    Cara in the  Mila linen dress 

    Wet Edge restaurant located on the mainland was centred on a beautiful deck overlooking the ocean, with some of the best food you’ll ever taste. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and laughed for the whole night.


    What to do in Fiji

    Adri featured in the Amalfi Top and Sorrento High-Waist Bottoms in Lemon Drop Yellow

    Fiji is a place with many activities that you can’t do anywhere. The first and one of the most amazing things is snorkelling. In Fiji, we were able to experience some of the most vibrant corals and fish too! We were encapsulated into a new magnificent underwater world filled with colour and beauty. Some great places to go snorkelling is at the Sheraton where there is a reef right next to the resort.

    Jamie and Lisa both in the  Amalfi Top and Capri Cheeky Bottoms in Lemon Drop Yellow

    Boat tours are another great thing to do. On the trip, we went Coral Cats Sailing on a catamaran to secluded reefs where went snorkelling as well. 

    Another thing to do in Fiji is to experience the culture. Rich in cultural traditions practices, you’d be a fool to not want to experience their way of life. There are many places you can go to see traditional Fijian dancing. Experience the Lovo way of cooking, a very old style of cooking for the masses where they dig a 2ft deep hole and cook their meal in it. This traditional method is fascinating to watch and also delicious to eat. At the resorts Sheraton & Westin they have an evening show and meal to experience the Fijian culture and in Tokoriki a short boat ride would take you to the local village where you can have a tour.


    What to pack for Fiji

    Fiji is a tropical climate, so our must haves are;

    • Water – can’t go anywhere without a bottle of Fiji Water
    • Big Hats
    • Bangn Body – to keep your skin hydrated after a day in the sun
    • And most importantly your Ete Swimwear!

    All the girls are wearing the Jamie x Ete collection, London in the far right is wearing the Praiano top and  Capri Cheeky Bottoms in Lemon Drop Yellow


    For swimwear, a must is the new Jamie x Ete Swimwear collection. The influencers including Jamie who joined us on the trip looked absolutely beautiful in all the collections pieces. They’re many variations in colour and style including high-rise bottoms, one-pieces and cute accessories to make your bathers all that much better.

    Places you've never heard of but want to visit

    Places you've never heard of but want to visit

    Looking for somewhere new and interesting to travel? Here we have all the places you've never heard of but want to go to. From beautiful white beaches to cities filled with stunning architecture or rich in culture. There's definitely somewhere on this list which will unleash your travel side.

    Huacachina, Ica Peru


    This small oasis feels a lifetime away from the hustle and bustle of the real world. Surrounded by tumbling sand dunes it comes as a surprise to discover it is only located 10 minutes from the city of Ica. Here you can do many things such as dirt biking, enjoy a long relaxing walk over the dunes, or watch the sunset over this quiet little sanctuary. 

    Photo by @aysteph


    Chefchaouen, Peru 

    Chefchaouen is often referred to as the blue pearl of Morocco. A city wrapped in vibrant blue contrasting against the peoples bright coloured clothing it is a sight to behold for visitors. There are many theories surrounding the city’s unique colour scheme, some say it was painted blue by the Jews to celebrate their freedom, while others say to keep away mosquitoes, but my personal favourite idea is that it represents the sea.

    Whitehaven Beach, Australia

    The award-winning blue water getaway is located on the coast of the northeast of Australia. Spanning over 7km the beach creates a beautiful pattern against the pristine white sand and light blue ocean.

    Jaipur Rajasthan, India

    This beautiful city has many wonders to experience from visiting the City Palace, the Bazaars of Jaipur, Hawa Mahal (palace of winds) or Ja Mahal. Its vibrant colours are certain to catch any passers-by' eye and make for the perfect Instagram pic as well!

    Clarence Town Long Island, Bahamas’s   

    Clarence town in Long Island is the perfect place for all kinds of people. If you want to get your heart racing to visit Deans Blue Hole, 202 meters deep Deans blue hole is the deepest hole known. Its clear water means on some day’s travellers can see 115 feet down. Or if you rather have a cultural experience you can look at the beautiful blue and white St. Peter’s and St. Pauls church.

    Phi Phi Islands, The Philippines

    Phi Phi islands surround you in Lush green scenery and mesmerising blue oceans. This paradise consists of 6 islands including tourist frenzy Phi Phi Don but also quiet Phi Phi Leh. Here on these islands in the Philippines, be prepared to see beautiful sunsets, white sand beach and enough sunshine to last you a lifetime.

    Ayutthaya, Thailand

    Ayutthaya is a beautiful archaeological city, that holds stunning temples, monasteries and ancient statues alike. This world heritage site is brimming with amazing things to do and see such as the Historical Park, Wat Phra Sri Sanphet, and Watt chaiwattanaram.

    Cape Town, South Africa

    Cape Town is a booming city of life that has plenty of new things for you to see and do. If you fancy a stroll along Boulders beach, make sure to say hi to the little penguins who most likely will join you on your walk. Or visit some of the most beautiful natural gardens you will ever see. First, there is Kirstenbosch, with 1000 of acres of the botanical garden, or check out Namaqualand, 5 hours away and see land engorged in everblooming flowers.

    El Nido, The Philippines

    With towering great rock formations crystal clear seas, and quiet beaches who could ever say no to such a thing? El Nido is a cluster of islands of the Tip of Palawan in the Philippines. These islands contain many secret places such as a secret hole to the Secret Lagoon. Or if you want to get your heart racing you can travel to snake island, or maybe have a day of hiking to Nagkalit-Kalit Waterfalls, and to finish the day of you can watch the sunset as it falls over the mountains.

    Lisbon, Portugal

    This picturesque city by the seaside has many places to go and get lost. From weaving through the red-roofed and white-bricked houses in the Alfama District or exploring the Padrão dos Descobrimentos. The city is begging for visitors to look all around and discover new things.
