Real talk: everyone looks better with a tan. @sunnygirlspraytanphx #Phoenix

If we’re being ┬áhonest, literally everyone looks better with a tan. Of course, there are boundaries where tasteful tan ends and Oompa Loompa begins. How to find the sweet spot without getting sun spots?

The answer lies in spray – but the right spray. Not all spray tans are created equal. Popular machine sprays can’t see your body, resulting in splotchy bits and odd coloration. And sometimes the pigment isn’t as natural looking, so unless you’re going for Carrot Top, it might not look too chic.

mof disclosure

#ad #CraveFreely

Somebody once said, “for a great bikini body, have a body – then put on a bikini.” Done!

We don’t always want to accept it, but there’s major truth in that. All bodies are beach bodies and bikini bodies! Still, this time of year many of us feel compelled to pursue the ever-popular six pack abs through torturous, extreme exercises and diets. And really, all it ever ends in is a crash and a swing of the nutrition pendulum back in the other direction (insert-empty-ice-cream-tub-here). Continue reading “The Secret to a Great Bikini Body?

How to look thinner than you actually are

Oh God. Why do we do this? Every year, we force each other to parade around in bathing suits. Is it masochism, voyeurism, or some sick combination thereof?

In any event, it’s time to wear small amounts of slippery-feeling clothing in front of your friends. Yay? Problem is, just like me you’ve failed to ditch the eggnog-and-butter-cookies weight (or habit) of yesterwinter and you’re still a little, um… paunchy.

BikiniBOD review feature

Take the BikiniBOD Challenge #myBikiniBOD

I recently went on a fabulous summer vacation to my hometown, which just so happens to be a lazy beach town. It was a glorious week of fried seafood, boat drinks, music, sand and surf… but dietary discipline was not on the menu. (Nor should it be on any vacation.)

Consequently, upon my return I noticed that I’d somehow while on hiatus reached┬áthe size of┬áa house. Well, maybe not a house, but at least a small condo. The scale read a number I can’t even repeat, and I mourned the loss of my once bikini-ready body. ┬áMoreover, I vowed to see it return.

Enter BikiniBOD, which┬áhappened to fall into┬ámy life at just the right time. It’s a supplement that acts as an appetite suppressant, metabolism booster and beauty-enhancing vitamin in one. Plus, it’s made by women, for women. Girl power!

So what’s in this stuff that makes it so special? Check it out: Continue reading “Take the BikiniBOD Challenge #myBikiniBOD” ╗
