Hellooooo lovelies! How was your April? Have you made your way through all the kids’ Easter eggs yet?!!! We’re still going in our house….it seems to be never ending!!
With this in mind, I thought it might be a good idea to turn our attention to prepping for summer….it’s most definitely time to start thinking about that bikini, what that bikini is going to look like & of course the fab accessories that you’re going to wear with said bikini!!!
So…let’s tackle the ‘getting into that bikini’ section first shall we?! In a former life, I was actually a trained fitness instructor – believe it or not?! My one piece of advice when you’re thinking about getting in shape is this little saying right here – calories in & calories out!!! If you don’t burn more calories than you consume on a daily basis then you will never lose those extra pounds. Exercise for me is key – not just from a weight perspective but also for my own wellbeing. My daily morning walk with our pooch is a great way to burn calories & it also sets me up for the day….I also love my Zumba classes at my local gym. If the gym isn’t a possibility for you, then I would say find a style of exercise that you enjoy & try & do it at least three times a week.
But what about if you need a kickstart? Then you might benefit from something like the Cambridge Weight Plan helpful. I can highly recommend Loren Knight over at The 1:1 Diet….she has had a huge life changing experience with CWP & is passionate about helping others do the same.
So that’s us on the right track for feeling fitter & healthier….let’s look at trends for summer fashion this year shall we?! Neons are set to make a comeback which I loved a few years ago! Team that with some cool flats & an a oversized hat & you’l be bang on trend for SS19!! Check out Glamour Magazine for their Top 10 on what we’ll be wearing this season. But what about that all important bikini?! There are so many styles to choose from & I think it really depends on what kind of holiday you’re going on & what you feel most comfortable wearing. Next always have a great range & are bang on trend with some lovely pieces, like the animal print pictured here….
Right…you’ve got the bod sorted, the wardrobe is on point – now you need some super gorgeous accessories to finish things off!! SJL can definitely help in that department! Just in are these gorgeous kaftans….
Made from 100% cotton & using traditional printing techniques, these make the perfect cover up for the beach or by the pool. Super soft & very generous, one size fits all.
