Or, for something that requires a little less commitment, how about eyelash extension. You’ll have to sit still for a couple of hours. However, the results can last up to a month! This makes them great for a two-week holiday on the beach. You can leave them bare, or top them up with a waterproof mascara. Be warned though; they’re pretty addictive!
The sun is shining once again, and it finally seems possible to believe that summer is on the horizon. That means that it’s almost time to pack away your winter coats and dig out your dresses! Holiday season will soon be upon us, and with it brings hotter days… and maybe even a vacation or two?
Now is a great time to start readying your body for the summer months. Once you put on your favourite bikini, you’ll want to hit the pool or the beach with full confidence. Here is a handful of ways to get yourself beach ready and bursting with pride in your body.
Hire a personal trainer
Now, you could just hit the gym. If you have previous experience in getting fit or are great at motivating yourself, this might be enough. However, if this is not the case, a personal trainer might be a better bet. This is because together you can make a plan to have you happy with your body in a set amount of time. If you’ve already booked your flights, or know exactly when you can take off work, you can sit down together first and arrange a schedule. Plus, his or her knowledge can mean that you can focus on the parts of your body you most want to work on. So, if you want to firm up your stomach and tone up your legs, the trainer can direct you straight towards the best exercises. You may find that getting fit with a personal trainer is significantly faster, easier and more effective than going it alone.
Consider breast augmentation
There are lots of myths and non-facts out there about female breast augmentation surgery. Be wise, and do the research for yourself. You’ll discover the realities, not the scaremongering. Breast augmentation can do incredible things for a woman’s confidence. If you have always been self-conscious of the size of your breasts, it might be something you want to consider. And when could be a better time than in advance of the season you’re likely to have them more on display than usual!
Semi permanent makeup
Do you love to wear makeup while on the beach or by the pool, but hate how it gets smeared and rubbed off? Then semi-permanent makeup could be the thing for you! Thanks to ever-developing methods and technology, there are now all sorts of different treatments. Semi-permanent eyebrows are becoming ever-more popular, and for good reason. While they are tattoos, they are meant to be very natural looking. Once your course of treatment is done, the idea is that they look like natural, groomed eyebrows.
Meet Niall. Niall is the man in charge of getting me all nice and toned. He’s a brave lad.
What drew me to Niall was his poster in the girls changing rooms. He does a 12 week to LBD training programme which of course appeals to any woman. However I’d seen him around the gym and he seemed friendly and not TOO intimidating.
Niall has been brilliant from the start. He got me to send him an email chatting about what I wanted to get out of this and immediately he set me on the right track. He fired me over a pack with shopping lists, meal plans and recipes and let me loose. While providing me with an introductory workout, I have also had two full on Personal Training sessions with Niall, this lad has me benchpressing, who’d have thought it.
One thing I love about training with Niall is his enthusiasm for the whole thing, he is always in a top mood and ready to get into it and give it his all. He will always stop to talk to you and see how you are getting on and is always at the end of a text. One day I was feeling so unmotivated that I sent Niall an email telling him I was just feeling off. He sent me a nice email back perking me up and encouraging me to keep it up and not to let a bad day get me down. Later that night at the gym he got me to go to two classes he was running and after I was in the complete opposite mood. I was so pumped and happy and could hardly believe that two hours before I had been so down in the dumps.
We have even added his boxing class to my weekly workout so that I can vent, and work out the oul upper body. Did I mention Niall sends me my workout every day? Nothing better than having someone actually put thought into what they get you to do day to day, rather than just sending you off with a piece of paper. No two work outs have ever been the same.
I’ve set myself the goal of December 6th, just in time for my work party but I don’t know if I will be 100% satisfied with my results by then. It can get quite hard to be optimistic when you don’t see results straight away. Although people who don’t see me too often have said they definitely notice a difference in me. If I don’t achieve my goal by December I will still keep training as this is something that is important to me and I will feel so much better for.
Last week was the first time I lost weight since I started this plan and I was chuffed. It wasn’t a lot, but it was something. I also find it is now easier for me to say no to treats, especially crisps… chocolate is still a struggle.
You can check Niall out on Facebook and Instagram. Niall’s instagram is great for daily motivation and recipe ideas.
My next few posts will be some sponsored ones, with items sent to me courtesy of Escentual and Specspost. Keep an eye out for them. My next gym update will be in about 10 days time when I get my measurements taken again.
See you all then. Feel free to follow me on instagram for more regular updates.
