When she first breezed into the ISHINE365 HQ, we were absolutely smitten! With her luscious waist-length hair, bronzed skin,  hot bod and bubbly personality to match, how could we not feature mega babe (and ISHINE365 brand ambassador) Erika Wheaton as our first Woman Crush Wednesday on the blog?

After snapping a few pictures of her wearing our hottest new must haves, we got to sit down with this super cutie to ask her a few questions and this is what we found out… This Miami native has a Colombian background and spent this past summer visiting family in Colombia. While soaking up the sun in the beaches of Baranquilla and Cartagena, she worked on her hard earned tan. And just how does this latin beauty tan so perfectly? She puts on her teeniest bikini, lathers herself up with Banana Boat’s dark tanning oil (spf 4), baking 30 minutes on each side and spending a little time in the water to catch some rays. 

We asked her what her fave ISHINE365 ‘kini was and she told us that she’s in love with the Minimale Animale Bandit top and bottom because it provides minimal coverage giving you the best tan lines. Although, it’s summer almost year-round in Miami, her favorite fall trend is leather; she pairs up her leather biker jacket with distressed jeans, an over-sized tee, and sneakers for a beach to street look. Being as though she is a really easy-going person, you can catch her on a friday night out with friends in Wynwood. 

When she’s not enjoying the beach, hanging with friends, or going to school, she models. “Modeling wasn’t something I really planned. I actually just started receiving phone calls from photographers and next thing you know i’m getting blown up on social media… I fell in love with it!”, the bombshell said.
