The Summer Holiday Series

Summer is in full swing here in England, or it should be at least! We take it day-by-day here. Today is sunny and very warm, ole! If you’ve been reading the blog over the last couple of months, you would have noticed the theme of getting bikini-body ready, THE SUMMER HOLIDAY COUNTDOWN (dah-dah-dah!). Because whether you will be sashaying down Kings Road, hanging out on Primrose Hill, or whipping out the Brazilian-style bikinis on your annual sangria-drinking holiday with the girls, being ready to flaunt what your mother gave you is all part of the summer fun. And my blog posts have been about helping you (and me!) prep for this, so you don’t end up in a mild panic, desperately trying to squeeze yourself into a teeny cozzie like you’ll be trying to squeeze those extra shoes into your suitcase! Yes, yes, being fit and healthy is a year round lifestyle but we all need that little extra help when it’s ‘Sun’s out, bun’s out’ time.

So I’ve put all the blog posts in this series together right here, to make it easier for you – no excuses! They are just one click away…

The Summer Sizzlers
As part of the Summer Holiday Countdown I’ve been talking about getting motivated, devising a plan, and now you’ve got to eat like you mean it!

Here are our favourite healthy meals in heels for the summer:

The Holiday Workout
After following a plan, eating healthily and giving it your best, you are READY to prance about on that beach, like Beyonce in her ‘Drunk in Love’ video (aye caramba!).
