My Bikini/Beach Body Challenge!

Possibly the only 'before' picture I can bear to show, from being in the garden the other week.
Going on holiday is always something to look forward to, especially if you're going abroad... getting out in the sun with your nearest and dearest and partying the nights away is absolute perfection for me. However, there is ALWAYS one bugbear that I dread (and I'm sure many of you do too), and that's getting my body out in full view in a bikini.

I have lost over 5 stone in weight, which is great but I still have about 1 stone or so still to go, and also with plenty of wobbly bits to tone up before I'd feel 'happy' being so bare, especially in front of a lot of friends this time (including male friends)... now I am single and not jetting off with my ex.

So, I have made it my mission to get my body bikini ready by the time I go away at the beginning of September, which gives me approximately 11 weeks to get in shape and ready for public viewing (god help me). I'm looking to slim down, tone up and generally get my body (and my face for that matter) looking the absolute best they can, including my skin tone/texture, hair removal and suchlike. :-)

I'd love to be able to go and have the fat sucked right out of my problem areas (tummy, bingo wings, inner thighs, back fat and hips - to list a few, ha), but my budget would not run to that unfortunately. :-(

So, unless I have a lottery win, I'll just have to do it the hard way with diet and exercise. That being said, I will be trialing products in the run up to the holiday that claim to help with weight loss, firming and toning and generally getting my body and skin in shape. So, expect lots of beach body posts once I am back, letting you know how well I did, and how well I felt specific products worked.

I'll also be finishing off with a recap detailing my results, including the highs, lows and what I felt worked the most, for me.

Are any of you off on your jollies? If so, what have you done/are you doing to prep for them? x

New Sigma 10% Code For June 2013!

I love my Sigma brushes, they have quickly become my staple make-up brushes since I got my first set sent to me to review via the old affiliate incentive program.

I have since purchased many more (to be reviewed on here very soon) because they are high quality brushes that apply make-up beautifully, and with ease but don't break the bank. I also find they wash well and keep their shape - although I have also bought their Dry'n' Shape to help with that, and also to speed up the drying process after washing my brushes - since before I tended to be a little *too* lazy with that, due to long drying times and my impeccable impatience, ha!

Anyway, I received an email to tell me of their latest 10% off code for the month of June, and thought I'd pass it on to you guys, in case you were toying with the idea of making a purchase. I highly recommend their Synthetic Sigmax range, especially the face brushes, specifically the F80 and F82... perfect for applying liquid foundation AND Bare Escentuals mineral powder too.

To get your 10% discount, simply enter code: SUM2013 at checkout.

Not bad eh?!
