How To Get Bikini Ready In 7 Days

The 10 People You’ll See at the Beach This Summer

The 10 People You’ll See at the Beach This Summer

Living in South Florida means I’ve seen my fair share of beach-goers. The beaches down here are filled with beautiful people with beautiful bodies and perfect tans. However, they aren’t always filled with people who are easy on the eyes. Nor is every beach day an episode of Baywatch. As summer approaches, more and more people are heading off to the beach to catch some rays and waves -- which mean you're going to do a lot of people watching. For better or worse.

Check Out the New Swimsuit Collection from Express!

I'm getting a little tired of this whole "April Showers" thing. Monday was supposed to be 70 (a huge deal for anyone living in New England), but what happened instead? Rain! Again! I'm ready for those sun shiny days, filled with beach cook outs and margaritas.

Fashion Porn: Getting it on in the Sand

With Spring Break fast approaching (more on that here!), it's time to start thinking about what you'll be wearing with that margarita on the hot, sandy beaches. That also means it's time to get your bikini bod ready and prep yourself for the agony of swimsuit shopping.

Fashion Porn: Beach Cover-up Orgy

Whether you choose to wear a bikini or a one-piece, you're going to need a cover-up for going to the beach, or even just covering up a bit to avoid extreme sun exposure. Lucky for you there are some really cute options this year that will easily transition from the beach to the boardwalk (assuming you dry yourself up enough to avoid those pesky wet marks around your boobs...).

Body Blog: Beat the Bloat

Sodium is like that annoying, socially awkward kid who just can't take a hint. No matter where you go, he's there, usually sporting some short jorts, trying to get your attention. He knows he's not welcome, at least he should, but he can't take a hint. And then you're bloated.

Bikinis Are Out, One-Pieces are In!

One-pieces are totally in this summer, which has us happy as a clam since the past few weeks of finals have left no time for the gym and a lot of time for late-night food deliveries. For the first time since middle school we can actually feel sexy and trendy rockin' something at the pool that isn't a bikini (and doesn't give us uni-boob like a Speedo!).

5 Reasons You’ll Want to Die This Memorial Day

5 Reasons You’ll Want to Die This Memorial Day

With the exception of Arbor Day, there is no "wait, what is this holiday about" holiday more dangerous than Memorial Day. Sure Columbus Day has its controversial discussions about killing Native Americans and St. Patrick's day has its suspicious green beer, but neither come close to the madness that is this 3-day weekend.

Budget Stylista: Norma Kamali Does Swimsuits on a Budget

We all remember that scene in the first 'Sex and the City' movie. You know, the one where Miranda's hair down there is doing a bit more than just peeking out of her suit. But if I'm being honest, when I first saw the movie I didn't even pay attention to that extra "collection" south of the border. For all I know, there could have been dread locks coming out of there because my eyes were glued to her amazing, fabulous, please-can-I-have-it-NOW Red swimsuit.

Summer sundresses are awesome for so many reasons: they're comfy, they're cute and they're totally versatile. You can pair 'em with all kinds of shoes (flats, sandals, heels, wedges, boots; you name it, it can work), and you can wear 'em over a bikini, for those last warm days on campus, or for a night out.

Body Blog: 14 Tips To Get Your Workout Back On Track

I get it. Trust me, I get it. It’s getting nice out and the last thing you want to do is spend an hour or two inside the gym. Who wants to sweat indoors when eating ice-cream by the lake is so much more appealing (and yummy?) But on the flip side, you'll be donning a bikini before you know it (like, ahem, next week) and you want to look h-o-t.

You've seen the commercials (and most likely remember them because they used to discuss "the big O"), but have you actually perused Overstock.com? The site might be overwhelming to some, but that is because it is chock full of awesome deals on clothes, shoes and accessories (in addition to home goods, decor and linens). Overstock.com brings you items that are marked down by up to 80% (!!) and they ship fast and cheap.

Day-to-Night Styler: Beach Babe to Party Girl

Chances are you'll be spending many days at the beach this summer. And chances are good that a day of sun time can often be topped off by a night of fun time out at the bars. Heading out for some drinkies with the girls doesn't mean you have to rush home to get ready.

Burnt To a Crisp? Read On…

Now that a lot of us hold weekly office jobs, it makes perfect sense that we want to soak up as much sun as possible on the weekends. However, too many girls make the mistake of not wearing sunscreen while sitting in the sun to compensate for their pale bodies…and end up looking like a lobster instead.

Swimsuit shopping has been dreaded by women for a very long time, but it doesn't have to be. Sure, seeing all that cellulite harshly highlighted by the flourecent lights of a dressing room is U-G-L-Y, but there are so many cute suits this season that you may not even notice those ripples.

Makeup 101: The Scents of Summer

Summer is just around the corner! Err, well, kind of, anyway; it turns out that being home for summer vacation does not mean that it’s actually summer weather. So, unfortunately I am not sitting on a beach (I tried, but the wind was cold and my leg hair grew back in 4 seconds) and went on a hunt to find fragrances that remind me of the beach (and that have super cute summery bottles!) instead.

'll be the first to admit that I own a ridiculous amount of swimwear for a girl who lives in a state where the temperature reaches 80° for a maximum of three months. I'm not even a swimmer. I just really like bikinis. For the past few summers, however, the monokini has been a fierce alternative to the triangle top and the Brazilian cut bottom.
