It's finally here! So girls we need to get ready...

Yes, we've had at least two consecutive days of blue sky - how exciting!  Love the sunshine, love the longer days but there is a little price to pay now that we can play!

We can't keep hiding behind our thick tights, jeans or PJ's, we can't avoid that in a few weeks time we may be lying on a beach or pool side with all our body on show....so it's time to get ready for the summer sun!

A little maintenance every day, and within a few weeks you'll be ready to hit that boardwalk!

Here's my top tips:


  1. Pluck it, shave it or wax it - I don't really need to say anymore than that!
  2. Exfoliate and I mean more than just your face.  Your skin has been hidden for the last few months, so unless you've been a beauty goddess and you've kept up with a morning and night routine throughout winter, you need to get exfoliating
  3. Oils and lotions - there are so many to choose from, work out what suits you and fits in easy to your busy schedule.  I quite like using baby oil in the shower as it leaves your skin feeling soft without being sticky.
  4. Pedicures - if your getting your feet out - you need to keep on top of this!  Start the season off with a professional one, and then maintain weekly yourself.  Treat yourself to another one just before you go on holiday!
  5. Getting fit!  I don't know about you, but with all this extra rain and snow I've not been great at getting out & about as much....start to build in a weekly plan of walking, cycling, swimming, Zumba etc and you'll get there by your hols.
  6. Portion control.  Yes I mean food.  Avoid snacking and start thinking of all those different healthy summer foods you spoil yourself with.


It won't be here for long, so make every day count!
