So the big day is almost here and I feel utterly unprepared. I don’t remember the last time I actually took a vacation with my husband. There was one business trip nearly three years ago to New York that could count as a mini vacation of sorts but before that the last time I sat on a beach, or had a week without an alarm clock…who even knows when it was? So this summer we are gearing up for a few days away and yes even though I am not even swimsuit ready I am heading out to buy a new suit that I can actually live with.
And then, part two of the high maintenance plan goes into effect. I am filling my arsenal with make-me-bikini-ready products just in time for the countdown to beach day!
If you suffer from a little muffin top, orange peel or as the brits say “bingo wings” (aka flabby, flapping arms) fear not…help is on the way! But don’t make the mistake of thinking that you should skip the fruits, veggies and healthy habits…these products might be amazing… but they aren’t real magic!
