How to get Beautiful Sexy Legs….

Hi all πŸ˜‰

It is Summer, the official skirts and shorts Season! And since soft shapely legs are always in season, here are my secrets to achieving sexy flawless legs (all year round):

1. TONE with Exercise

Ever that expression “dancer’s legs”? Well the way to have beautiful toned legs, is precisely that – to dance! and run, and squat, and exercise! Here are some of the sports and exercises I recommend (tried and tested):

Dancing

Body Combat

Running

Squats

Jumping squats

Lunges

Leg raises

Push up leg raises

Stretching (essential for long, lean muscles)

2. BUFF with Exfoliating and body brushing

This is the key to flawless soft skin. Exfoliate EVERYDAY. Yes, every single day. I used to exfoliate once twice a week, but I heard Elle Macpherson (known as the The body) claimed exfoliating every single day was the only way she maintained those pins catwalk-ready, I started too… and good God does it work wonders!! It helps your skin speed up the skin renewal process and get rids of dead skin cells which usually make up those annoying dry spots.

Body brushing is a bit different. I use the body brush every few days, sometimes twice or three times a week. Apart from all the beauty advantages, it also improves circulation and prevents those little vessels from showing. It also prevents cellulite, and with the correct fitness and nutrition, it will even get rid of it!

3. PROTECT with Body oils

I ALWAYS use body oil after a bath or shower while my skin is still damp. I highly recommend this to anyone, specially if you have dry skin or after exfoliating/body brushing. Β Here are my favourite, which are always present in my bathroom:

Johnson’s Baby Oil – perfect for everyday, excellent value

Clarins Body Contour Body Treatment oil – best for firming and can be used mixed with your favourite moisturiser

Johnson’s Skin Perfecting Oil – best for improving skintone

Bio-Oil – best ever for scars and stretch marks

4. SMOOTH with Hair removal

For long lasting hair removal trying waxing or the ultimate hair removal technique, laser hair removal. It is permanent, practically painless nowadays.

After any laser procedure don’t forget to use Laser AfterCare:

Laser AfterCare is the only cosmetic product out there specially formulated to soothe the skin after laser procedures (including mole removals and skin resurfacing) and has been around for over 12 years. It 100% natural and the first ever winner of the BUAV Golden Bunny Award.

5. PERFECT with Fake tan and airbrush

And finally the last step to ultimate Leg Perfection? Yep, that’s right, fake tan!

I recommend:

St. Tropez Gradual Tan

Rimmel Instant Wash off tan

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs

6. Final Details

A magic product, which leaves skin as soft as velvet, with a special subtle shimmer which is more luminosity than shine, which is indispensable to any skirt/shorts/dress occasion:

Possibly the best body product yet!

Hope you all enjoyed it, and have a great Summer!!

Lots of love,

Shorts? In the British weather? Really?!

My lovely bloggers and readers,

I LOVE shorts. Really, I do. I have countless pairs of original Levi’s cut-offs and all sorts of jeans which I got bored of, and just cut to all sorts of lengths… Then there’s the crochets, leather-look (perfect for winter, I mean perfect always), tailored…. you name it, I have it!

But…. I live in England. Who’s been here before, knows the feeling… that feeling you look out of the window in the morning, see a clear blue sky, put some shorts or a floral dress (which you probably bought for a holiday and never had a chance to wear since) and as soon as you walk out the door, that characteristic icy cold wind, which freezes you to the bones. Yes, that feeling. And my love for shorts hasn’t faded one bit.

So… through the years I have had to find other ways to wear my so loved shorts… here are my top tips to wearing shorts in the British weather, (excluding tights, that my friend, is obvious!) or early Spring or winter or you live anywhere else in the world πŸ˜‰

1. Tailored blazers

There is something very special about tailoring. it’s crisp, sharp, elegant and it picks up any outfit. Polish up any pair of shorts with a crip, well tailored blazer. Make sure it’s long sleeved so it balances the skin on show (bare legs = covered arms). Ok to fold them though.

2. Layers

Festival feelings anyone?

3. Glitter/Sequins

I love sequins. i find it makes any outfit more interesting, show-stopping, and nightclub worth! Use and abuse now!

4. Leather (look)Β 

Smart outfits with shorts? Check!

5. Jazz it up

My answer to everything! Let your true style shine through what could only be worn by you. Style it up, jazz it up, your way! πŸ˜‰

6. Shirts/Blouses

Who said shorts can’t be elegant? Come again?

Hope you all like it!

Lots of Love,

A xoxo
