Every year, i always look forward for summer. Just thinking about the beach makes me happy and giddy. After the Christmas season, which is the season of parties and food binging, it is the time that i do intense work out, fitness regimen and implement strict diet. I started as early as October last year to prepare myself for summer 2016. I alternate running with Muay Thai training with a strict diet of no pork and beef plus quinoa in lieu of white rice. Although i do not recommend this diet, you should always consult a physician or dietician for proper guidance but i did lose weight doing those. It is so difficult to achieve a magazine worthy bikini body. My body is still a work in progress. I wish i can afford those expensive ways of trimming down weight!
Here are a few photos on how i pulled off my looks for the bikini season.
Mactan Shangrila Resort and Spa
Summer started early for me, celebrated Valentine’s Day at Mactan Shangrila Resort and Spa.
This red bikini with mini-ruffles top is perfect for ladies who are not well-endowed like me.
A week after, visited again the beautiful island of Boracay. I love the color of this bikini, it has summer feels with those vibrant colors. This was taken at our hotel pool, unfortunately Boracay beach is not so inviting when we went there.
North Sand Bar
This royal blue fringe top bikini complemented my skin and again the fringe top made an illusion of a beautiful upper body with it’s Vshape, i get an instant curve.
But what i really looked forward to was our Maldives trip which for me is one of the ultimate Bikini Season destination! On Day 1 at Maafushi Island, i wore a neon yellow/orange combi fringe bikini which is a birthday present from my bruha Johanna.On Day 2, i wore this figure-enhancing one-piece black swim wear that i bought online.
Day 3, i wore a this black two-piece swim wear which i bought at Aldo Nuvali. I actually didn’t have any idea that there is an Aldo swim wear line. This is one of my favorite bikini!
Day 4, we started our day with a morning swim and i used this blue combination swim wear that i bought on line.
In the afternoon, i wore a pink Victoria’s Secrets 2 piece bikini that has teen-feels because of its pink and white combination as well as the stripes and polka dots design.Day 5, i wore this one piece swim wear which i ordered online.
Day 6, i wore this beautiful animal print bikini which i really love the cloth. It hugs my body perfectly.
Day 6, i changed the top with this cute white crochet top. I love to mix and match too!
South Palms Resort Bohol
Last April, Reece and I invaded the solo trip of our friend Wowie at South Palms Bohol. I wore this Soak Swim Wear simmies but opted to use another bikini top.
I love wearing tie bottoms because it would make my legs look longer. Wearing my classic Black Aviator Rayban sunnies.
This month, i had a pool session with my bestie and stylist MJP.
I wore a beaded two piece which is a gift from my cousin Euco Dale.
Another pool session with my cousin photographer, Icee Ledesma wearing my Pink Dior So Real sunnies.
I wore this white top and a bottom with flower prints. So dainty!
I do not buy expensive swim wear because i usually wear it a couple of times only. I also mix and match my swimmies to give me multiple looks. For one piece swim wear, i need to fit before buying because my size is between medium and large. I always have a problem buying two piece bikinis because my top is medium and my bottom is large. I love those shops selling top and bottom separately. Am i the only one with this kind of dilemma?
As for the bikini body, i personally believe that each of our bodies are unique and beautiful. So whether you feel like you are too fat or too thin, never stop yourself from wearing swim suits. Be fearless and confident in the beach. That is one of the perks of being a woman, having to enjoy wearing bikinis. Enjoy the beach, sun, sand and of course your company.
So, how to really get a bikini body?
- Put a bikini on your body.
- Stop giving a shit about what everyone else thinks!
- Get your ass to the beach, beautiful!
