Win a holiday in France with Oakley, Surfdome and Big Friday!

the Halo bikini

Don't forget to pop over to today and check out the Oakley collection to be in with a chance of winning 2 places on our amazing cycle surfari in France.   This is your last chance as the competition closes at midnight tonight!

We think its the perfect opportunity to add a little spice to your bikini collection, treat yourself!  We've been wearing Oakley bikinis for a few years now and the cut and colours always blow us away.  This year they have added cross backs to the collection which means we get a sturdy fit that won't leave us blushing in the surf but with no strain on our necks.. yew!

For inspiration here's our top 5 Oakley choices available on the Surfdome website right now .. some in the sale too .. hurray!

1. Halo Sports Bra Bikini - we LOVE the intricate back detail on this bikini, making a sports bra fit an altogether more feminine affair! Thanks Oakley!

2. This dotty print is from last years collection and we are really sorry to see it go, but the good news is you can still snap up a dolly bikini top in  this colourway in the sale for just £17.48 .. bargain!

3. Oakley Bond Girl D Cup Bikini in a stunning cobalt blue .. this beauty isn't going anywhere when we surf!

4. Oakley Graphite Stripe Ellipse Bikini in Wave  cross back ties and made from Oakleys special swimmetry fabric which resists chlorine, sun bleaching and sand abrasion!  Top £23.19 and bottom £23.18 both in the sale!

5. Last but not least some amazing colour, we are thinking this gem will look good on a tropical beach, set against jungle and palms and a white sandy beach .. ok we are dreaming a little and this will look just as good with a rolled down wetsuit in a windy car park in Devon  ..   more cross back styling from the Fluid tie-dye ellipse Bikini in neon yellow! 

Remember this contest closes at midnight tonight so be sure to get involved today!
