You have your own brand ”Monday Swimwear”, where did that idea come from?
If anyone were to start their own bikini line, it would be us. We have travelled a lot in the last five years and we found something we liked in all bikinis, but there weren’t many who had it all. We have created bikini collections that fit everyone, sizes come from XS to XL and we have bikinis in classic styles.
How did you two find each other?
We met in Hawaii through mutual friends and decided to go to California and move in together. Now we’re best friends, roommates and do everything together!
What is the key to being successful on social media?
The key is to be very passionate about what you do. As you may already know we don’t have a manager, we have done everything by ourselves from day one. So, be true to yourself and work hard.
How does a regular work day look for you?
All of our days look different. The last few days we’ve been traveling a lot between London, Oslo, Norway, Finland and Stockholm. We travel a lot, answer a lot of e-mails and work with content for our different channels. We also have a really nice home in LA together, that we stay in when we’re home.
How is it like to run a business with your best friend?
It’s very positive for us since we almost see ourselves as the same person. All that is mine is also yours, we say. We have never had a big fight and the reason for that is because we do what we love and we have an open relationship with each other.
What is the best thing about traveling around the world?
It’s so amazing that we have the possibility to travel as much as we do. To see different cultures, meet different people and see all the beautiful places around the world.
And the downside?
The early flights and jetlag.
