Tori Praver is one of those amazing women we all wish we could be. She has a successful career as a model, having been been photographed by Patrick Demarchelier and Gilles Bensimon, and featured in Vogue, Elle, Sports Illustrated Swim, etc. She’s also now an entrepreneur, with her eponymous line of swimwear. Growing up in Maui, Tori has a life-long love for the beach lifestyle…and it’s reflected in her current obsessions. If you’re looking to escape from your dreary winter weather – just for a little bit, check out Tori’s picks below!
ONE. Byredo Gypsy Water Eau de Parfum – My favorite scent. It’s such a great mixture of things…bergamot, juniper, orris, amber, pepper, sandalwood, and pine. It smells so fresh with the perfect amount of grunge. Perfection!
TWO. KitchenAid Mixer — One of my best friends. I love to bake and this little guy helps me make the most yummy treats! Cooking and baking is so relaxing to me and something that I can focus n to take my mind off all the stresses of the world.
THREE. Bikinis — I just can’t get enough of them! I never get tired of a good bikini; they just make me so happy! I have drawers full of bikinis, yet I still can’t stop collecting them. From vintage to brand new, they will forever be the loves of my life. (Editor’s Note: Because Tori is so lovely and modest…check out some of Tori’s own line at Free People or Revolve Clothing!)
FOUR. Axe Restaurant — One of my favorite restaurants in the world! It has such a great vibe and feels so cozy…not to mention the amazing food any time of the day. I love to go there for Sunday brunch, to grab a quick bite for lunch and sometimes, even a romantic dinner!
FIVE. Beaches — Without a doubt, the happiest place on earth! I grew up in Hawaii and no matter how far away I am, if I’m on a beach I feel right at home. I am drawn to the smell and feeling of the beach and have realized that in my life, I’m in a constant search for ocean and sand… My journey continues!
