There is always a certain magic that comes with a city located by a large body of water.

Bikinis & Passports was founded in February of 2010 as a personal travel diary for family and friends. A place to share the beautiful things in life. Quickly, it transformed into one of Austria’s best-known personal life & style blogs, with topics like fashion, travels, food & beauty. What started out as a hobby turned into Vicky’s full-time job in 2014.
My life isn’t Perfect. But it does have perfect moments.
Life has taken Vicky to a lot of places. She was born in Germany, spent her teenage years growing up in sunny California and finished school in Zell am See, a small village in the Austrian Alps. After graduating high school, she then made the move to Vienna to pursue a bachelor’s degree in communication and PR – which is also the time that Bikinis & Passports came to life.
Turning a passion and personal hobby into a full-time job has been a dream come true for Vicky. With more than 7 years of experience working in social media, she has had the honor of collaborating with brands like Bobbi Brown, Omega watches, Moët & Chandon, Nespresso, Aveda, Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts and Audi – just to name a few.
Traveling is her biggest passion, family always comes first, fashion is fun and beauty should never cover-up but enhance.
Bikinis & Passports is a personal blog and online resource for women who are looking for relatable and approachable every-day inspiration. Fashion, beauty, travel, food, fitness and everything in between.
Vicky Heiler (28) was born in Stuttgart, raised in Southern California, finished school in the Austrian Alps and moved to Vienna for a communications degree with a major in PR and advertising.
After graduating from college Vicky started working for Peek & Cloppenburg / Fashion ID in 2012 as part of the digital marketing team in charge of social media.
In 2013, she co-founded The Daily Dose, a life & style guide for driven women who appreciate all things beautiful. Made by girls for girls, the site strives to provide the daily dose of inspiration for all aspects of life!
Only one year later in 2014, TDD Social was born. TDD Social is a social media agency that specializes in social consulting, content editing and creative strategies.
Due to the great success of Bikinis & Passports, The Daily Dose and TDD Social, Vicky was able to take things to the next level in 2014 by dedicating 100% of her time to the career as a blogger and social media consultant.
Grateful for where I am at, excited about where I am going.
