I'll be focusing on...
Skin – prepping skin for sun exposure, self tanning, selecting sunscreen & lipbalm
Hair – deep conditioning, UV protection and styling ideas
Hands & feet – mani and pedi - preparing the talons for neon brights
Packing - product essentials - looking good with minimal effort!
I'll also be talking about getting my body well hydrated and eating as healthily as possible as I'm quite sure losing a few pounds would help a lot (even if I do put them back on when I get there!). Those who follow me on Twitter will know I have a sweet tooth and love my food & wine, but I'm becoming more and more aware of the fact that beauty really does begin on the inside and it's time I started treating my body like a temple!
I think I made a pretty good start today with the following:
breakfast - wholemeal toast & tea (I do love my toast!)
lunch - open salad on one slice of wholegrain
dinner - lemon chicken (baked in juice & zest) with large salad
I did have a couple of chocolate biscuits with coffee and a glass of wine with dinner, but less than normal - and I've been getting into the habit of drinking more water. Not perfect I know, but a start!
So far my holiday preparation has been all about the clothes (my other passion!), waiting patiently in my wardrobe, unworn and praying for sunshine...
Outfit One - dress & wedges

Outfit two - cobalt bandeau & gold flats

And the obligatory...

Is anyone else feeling the pre-beach-panic and are there any treatments I've missed, or topics you'd like me to include? Please leave a comment below with your thoughts! x
