Natasha Oakley and Devin Brugman
Shared details on their brands, A Bikini A Day, Monday Swimwear and Monday Active to Forbes. The friends spoke about their entrepreneurial upbringing and their passion that drives them. As for the success they have seen, especially since launching A Bikini A Day in 2012, Natasha had this to say.

“We have a strong message, one that has been consistent, relatable and speaks a truth that everyone wants to hear. Our story is one of friendship, entrepreneurialism, travel and style. It has created something both inspiring and achievable and hopefully something that can help push people in the directions they want to go.”

It’s about more than numbers for us, it’s about empowerment – and so responses like that make us so happy.”
