Summer’s on it’s way – hooray! (Oh crap, I’m so not summer-ready …)

I love, love, love the fact that a mini-heatwave is predicted for this weekend – yay!! Love the sun and how it makes everyone blissfully happy 🙂

However, even though I’ve had since January to do the following (and get myself super-sunshiney-glowing) it’s umm not quite happened and I’ve totally fallen off the bandwagon (big time): lose one stone; tone up via mega planking, squatting and thrusting; learn yoga (for a perfectly toned tummy); get hair stylishly cut and styled; get medi & pedi … and all that stuff.

Eek – so 5 months has now become 4 days to get summer-ready. In desperation, my last-minute summery-sun-kissed-goddess plan of action consists of:

No carbs; shed-loads of fruit & veg (please no spots due to rapid detox); no alcohol (that’s right – for 4 days – no alcohol); lashings of self-applied fake tan (I’m planning to look peachy-sun-kissed – though alas, my track record in applying to bronzing stuff is not great – but I’ll wing it – streaky is better than pasty right?); stomach-crunching like it’s going out of fashion and finally, most importantly, a bit of fakery attitude – which involves bunging on a summery dress that show off my best bits (little hint of boobs) and some wedge sandals to give me a bit of height.

Done. Ready. Bring on the sun! x
