4 Easy Ways to Get Ready for Summer

For the 2013 new year resolution, I promise myself to get in shape after all the holiday indulgence. I didn't get back shape! Instead, I indulged some more this past week for Lunar New Year and Valentine's Day. What is a girl to do when there is so much to celebrate, right?! Surprisingly spring is already upon us and before long summer. I don't know about you, but I have not bared my bod since the clocks went back. Although it is important to get into shape, I dislike going to the gym. Instead,  these 4 easy tips can help us get ready for summer before we know it.

Shape up 
One great way to tone your legs without even thinking about it is morning or afternoon walks in a pair of Skechers shape ups. These clever shoes are specially molded so your legs have to work harder to walk or run, resulting in fantastically toned legs. Wear them when exercising or simply when out and about town and you’ll start to feel the difference within a couple of weeks. Bear in mind they take a bit of getting used to but it’s well worth it.
Spray it
Sun-kissed skin always makes a girl look healthier and more in shape.  After months of winter days, my skin can almost glow in the dark. To get ready for the summer, I usually like to spray my skin to achieve the sun-kissed look.  I don't want to bare my lily white legs . To achieve the natural look, make sure you exfoliate thoroughly. There are a varieties of home spray tans available on the market. Home spray tan can be tricky but with practice, we can all manage quite well.  If money is not an issue, try a professional salon. Some places can work magic, you could even try a body sculpting tan which creates a slimming effect with subtle shading. 
Be in control
When I am not in shape, I don't feel in control or comfortable wearing a swimsuit. Most of the women I know all have an area or two that they want to cover up in the summer. If we are self conscious then it is very difficult to feel comfortable or confident when baring all on the beach or by the poolside.  For a super slimming effect, a tummy control suit with paneling will give the illusion of a narrower waist and flatten your tummy area. To frolic freely on the beach without worrying about wobbly bums and thighs, hit this year’s vintage-inspired trend with a skirted swimsuit in print or plain color. 
Get Higher
Platform sandals will be all over this summer. These lovelies are the perfect choice to add height and make your legs look longer and shapelier without compromising comfort level. Brown/beige leather will go with everything in the summer.  To achieve a brighter summer look, one can choose a pair in on-trend neon, which will showoff tanned legs fabulously. What about you, how will you get ready for summer?
