Summer is here, and for many of us, this is a perfect time for a makeover. Not only can you change up your personal style, but you can experiment with new makeup ideas and hairstyles which can transform your image.
The warmer weather is also the perfect opportunity to get out in the sun, do more exercise, and work on improving your body. So, without further ado, here are some great ideas to help you make the most of the summer months before winter gets you scurrying indoors again.
Transform your wardrobe
Now is the time to clear out wardrobe to make your room for your summer outfits. Remember, your style is your own, so you don’t need to be a dedicated follower of fashion. You don’t even need to buy anything new, as you could mix and match the items you currently own into an entirely different outfit.
However, if you are stuck for an idea, take a look online and see what others are wearing. While bright colours are usually a must for summer clothes, you may want to take a hint from royalty, and check out Kate Middleton’s new summer outfit at Popsugar.com. Alternatively, take a walk down your local high street and (discreetly) check out what people are wearing in your town. Not only will you get an idea of what you should add to your wardrobe, but you will probably also learn the kind of outfits you should definitely avoid!
Don’t overlook your feet. Havaianas are a summer staple, so head over to http://www.theiconic.com.au/ to see what they have to offer. You will want to give your toes room to breath, and catch a little piece of the sun, so find the right footwear to complement the rest of your summer outfit. We also looked at the summer styles in shades here at Bellenews.com, so from your head to your toes you can build up a great new look.
Whatever outfit you choose this summer, be true to yourself and find something you will feel comfortable and confident in wearing. It doesn’t matter what your body size is; there will always be an outfit you can fit into. Don’t be envious of the models on the catwalk, or those you see in magazines. Be proud of who you are, and wear something that suits the style you are looking to create. Not only are you trying to convey a fabulous new image to others, but you should also enjoy your latest ensemble.
Begin your summer workout
When it’s cold and wet outside, you have a reasonably good excuse to delay your workout plan. However, with the sun shining, you should make the most of the good weather and start to work on your body.
For starters, think about what you are trying to achieve. You may be trying to lose weight, or want to work on your cardio. There is a range of great ideas at Bodyandsoul.com.au that should give you plenty of ideas on where to start your workout. As you plan, make sure you pace yourself as you don’t want to burn yourself out before you have barely begun. Particularly if your body has been ‘resting’ for the last few months, you are going to need to be gentle on your arms and legs to avoid an injury and cramping.
For many people, exercise is a chore, but you don’t have to limit yourself to anything you will endure. Summer is a time to have fun, and there are many ways to keep fit while having a good time. You might also enlist your family and friends in the activities you take part in, ensuring you all have the opportunity to stay fit over the summer. Therefore, think outside of the box a little. Check out the ideas on Fitfulfocus.com, and you are sure to find something you will enjoy doing.
Whatever you do, try and spend some time each day in a keep fit activity. Use a fitness tracker to help you monitor how many pounds and calories you are losing, and set yourself targets. Of course, you will be battling against the rays of the sun, so look after yourself. Drink plenty of water to keep you hydrated, and layer yourself in sunscreen to protect your skin. Remember to eat healthily too, so cut back on those summer barbecues, and focus on delicious fruit smoothies to ensure your body looks good in the outfits you have chosen to wear.
